Sutherland proved to be the perfect replacement on Winni- peg Jets' top line with Bobby Hull and Norm Beaudin as the Jets hammered the Saints 8-5 tr advance to the semi-finals of the World Hockey Association playoffs. Sutherland, a journeyman for- ward for five National Hockey League teams over the last 10 years, scored two goals and as- sisted on four others as Winni- peg won the best-of-seven quar- ter-final 4-1. New England Whalers, mean- while, got a sudden-death over- time goal from Mike Byers Sat- urdav night to oust Ottawa Na- tionals 5-4 and wrap up their quarter-final 4-1. The Whalers will go against Cleveland Crusaders, who elimi- nated Philadelphia Blazers in four straight, in one semi-final starting Wednesday night in Boston. The Jets, meanwhile will have to wait until Houston Aeros and Los Angeles Sharks are finished with each other. AEROS The Aeros took a 3-2 lead in that series with a 6-3 win in a rugged game at Houston Sun- day night. The sixth game is scheduled for Tuesday at Los Angeles and a seventh, if neces- sary Thursday at Houston. Sutherland, a 5-10. 176-pound centre has 10 points in the play- offs, nearly half of the 22 points he piled up on six goals and 16 j assists during 49 games this j season. i Ths Regina native scored the i first goal in a four-goal outburst early in the second period that sparked the Jets. Beaudin. who finished the season with 103 points, fired three goals and added four as- sists to run his playoff scoring to 14 points while Hull picked up four assists to give the po- tent line 17 scoring points. After the two clubs played to a 2-2 tie before fans in the first period, Mike Antonouch's long flip shot slipped past Win- nipeg goalie Ernie Wakely. JETS BLAST CURRAN But the Jets went to work with Sutherland, Beaudin, Ab McDonald and Joe Zanussi scoring hi a four-minute span before Minnesota coach Harry Neale replaced goalie Mike Cur- ran with Jack McCartan. Beaudin scored his third of the night late in the period to give Winnipeg a 7-4 bulge and Bobby Ash and Sutherland tall- ied in the third period. Mel Pearson scored two to lead the Fighting Saints. Keith Christiansen and Ted Hampson were the other Minnesota marksmen. At Houston, right winger Frank Hughes scored twice for the Aeros in the first period to help his club to a 3-2 lead as both clubs piled up penalties. Hughes' second goal came after Paul Popiel had made it 2- 0 and Earl Heiskala opened the scoring for the Sharks on a power play. Gary Veneruzzo brought the Sharks to within one goal on an- other power play late in the pe- ricd but Larry Lund and Gord Labossiere put Houston back in command in the second period. Murray Hall counted for the Aeros and Jerry Zrymiak for Los Angeles in the third period. At Boston, Byers took a pass Soviets finish undefeated Sweden final victims MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union completed the world hockey tournament with a per- fect record of 10 victories Sun- day by beating second-place Sweden 6-4.

Going into Sunday night's game against the Lakers, the Bulls had two streaks going. They had never won a National Basketball Association playoff game on the road and hadn't won at the Los Angeles Forum since October 22, 1971. Unfortu- nately for Chicago, both streaks remained intact as Los Angeles edged the Bulls 95-92. In the first game of the NBA's Eastern finals Sunday Boston breezed by New York 134-108. Chicago's loss, its 38th con- secutive away playoff defeat, was especially bitter for Coach Dick Motta. "A loss like this is just like 3 year's work down the drain." he said. "I thought we had the game won even with 20 seconds to go cause all we had to do was get one good shot." But when it came down to the one good shot, it was the La- kers' Gail Goodrich who took it. Down 92-91, Goodrich scored a layup with 23 seconds left to give fre Lakers the lead for the first time in the second half. Jerry West added two foul shots for the final margin West finished with 27 poinls while Goodrich added 22. xioirr FOR NORM But the man everyone was talking about after the game the Bulls' Xorm VanLier who closed bis season tdlh 28 points and 14 rebounds.

SPRING THAW TUNE-UP SPECIAL 8 cylinder New job for Schmidt NEW YORK fAP) Miltj Schmidt, general manager of Boston Bruins and a member of pro hockey's Hall of Fame, has bean chossn to head the new j Washington franchise in the Na- tional Hockey League, it was reported Sunday night on the National Broadcasting Co. radio network.
