And in the West Division, Pittsburgh Penguins are await- ing the winner of the Blues- North Stars series alter elimi- nating Oakland Seals, also with four consecutive wins. Blues centre Phil Goyette said after his team's 6-3 win over Minnesota at St. Louis Tuesday night that the St. Louis squad now was ready to wrap np the series. "We're certainly going to give it a Goyette said. "There's no sense in prolonging it any more." The North Stars and Rangers, of course, have their own ideas on how long the series will go.

Weyburn Red Wings travel east to meet Thunder Bay Hur- ricanes in the first games of the series to decide the best junior hockey team in Western Cav ada. The teams play tonight and Friday, with a third game here Sunday if they split the first two.

KonsUnlin Andrianov, also vice-presidOTt of the Jnterna- jonal Olympic Committee, de- fended Moscow's right lo the Games in an article Wednesday in the magazine Ogonyok. Hs said Los Angeles had promised to turn over consider- able sums of money lo Ihe IOC from television revenues. This, the Russian official said, violates the IOC rute that the Games' be non-commercial. He said the Canadian conten- tion that Montreal is capable of staging the Games because of its success with the 1967 Expo is not sufficient. "We know what we have to do. We know we can beat them. We showed we could beat them last weekend. "We'll beat them tomorrow night and it will go into the sev- enth game. If we play three pe- riods like we did the first period last night, we can beat them in St. Louis loo." And besides winding up their series with New York, Boston has something else to prove to- night. "We'll be going all out Thurs- day Bruins coach Harry Sitiden said.
