Chief scout Claude Ruel of the Montreal Canadiens shows effects of season. Shutt paying dividends now that he is playing MONTREAL (CP) For the last few seasons Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League have carried a quota of extra players. Most of these players divide their time between the Montreal bench and a top minor league affiliate while awaiting a chance to fill in for a veteran. One youngster who has had his share of this treatment is Steve Shutt, sophomore left- winger with the Canadiens. Shutt, a standout with Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A Series until drafted by Montreal two years ago, had appeared in only one playoff game before the current quarter-final series against New York Rangers. But going into tonight's fifth game of the best-of-seven Stanley Cup series with the teams tied at two wins apiece, there is little that Montreal coach Scotty Bowman will leave Shutt on the bench. Shutt will be looking for his fifth goal in as many games when play gets under way at p.m. M.S.T., The game will be carried by the CBC TV network. Veteran right-winger Yvan Cournoyer has scored five goals in the four games to date against the in one game and two in another. But Shutt has set a steadier pace with one goal in each of the four games plus one assist. In his first-year with the Ca- nadiens. Shutt dressed for 50 games, scored eight goals and assisted on eight others. This season he dressed for 70 of 78 regular season contests, almost doubling his goal output to 15 while gaining assists on 20 other goals. Inclined to gain weight easily. Shutt, who says his best playing weight is close to 180 pounds, credits a bout of flu with improving his speed and manouverability. "A month ago I had a bad case of the flu and lost 11 pounds." Shutt said. "I've gained six of them back but I'm down to about 180 and I guess that's why I'm skating so well." Shutt has been able to leave several of the better New York checkers behind with his newfound speed. The team's return to New York for the sixth game of the series Thursday night also will be carried by the CBC at p.m. MST. Toros eliminate Crusaders in five Harris happy Cheevers' sidelined TORONTO (CP) Toronto foros eliminated Cleveland ,'rusaders in the World Hockey Association playoff Monday night but Toros coach Billy Harris seemed happiest at the thought of having done away with Gerry Cheevers. Cheevers was the league's leading goaltender last season and finished second to Houston Aeros' Don McLeod this year. Harris goes along with the statistics that ranked Cheevers second in the league, but he rates Toros Gilles Gratton, who allowed only 11 goals in the five-game series against Cleveland, No. I. Gratton helped the Toros win 4-1 Monday night to give Toronto the best-of-seven quarter final victory 4-1 in games. "We got 18 goals against what I consider to be the A Let...

"When we do this well against one of the best goaltenders. it must mean something." said Harris. SCORING IN BUNCHES Wingers Tom Simpson and Pat Hickey each scored twice while Ron Ward got the lone Cleveland goal. The Chicago Cougars-New England Whalers quarter- final ends tonight with the seventh game at New England's Springfield home arena. Rustlers may use Foothills CALGARY (CP) If the sixth and seventh games of the Centennial Cup western semi-final series are necessary, they will be played in Calgary, Jim Secular, president of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, said Monday. The games between Red Deer Rustlers and Kelowna Buckaroos were to have been held at Red Deer, but the arena in that city was unavailable. They now are scheduled for Thursday and Friday at Calgary's Foothills Arena. Kelowna, champions of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League, leads the series 3-1 and will take the title if the Buckaroos defeat Red Deer in a game Tuesday at Kelowna. The Whalers have three top players on the wards Larry Pleau, strained knee ligaments, and Tom Webster, bruised thigh, and defenceman Jim Dorey, bruised elbow. The toll of Crusaders playoff injuries increased Monday when winger Skip Krake went to hospital after being knocked unconscious in the first period. Krake took a check from Toros' defenceman Mike Amodco and crashed head- first into the boards. After regaining consciousness, he was taken to hospital for x- rays. "Krake definitely has a con- cussion." coach Bill Needham said. "What we're worried about now is whether he has a fracture. If the x-rays prove positive, we'll leave him in Toronto." Still in hospital here was Cleveland forward Gerry Pin- der who suffered an eye injury when he caught a high stick in the second game of the series. "We missed said Needham. "He's our fire plug."

Two local organizations, Lethbridge Community Services and Pepsi Cola Limited, announced their intentions to support the minor soccer program for the upcoming season. Community Services' representative, Steve Arisman, brightened a number of faces as he relayed the City's feelings on a minor soccer program. "We'd love to see a minor soccer program operate in the city similar to that of our other minor sports programs such as baseball and he said. "But it's our concern that the minor soccer program must be based on the assumption that every player receives the same amount of playing time, regardless of his ability. And if you comply to this request then the Community Services Department will give its full he added. The members of the LMSA meeting seemed in favor of the equal playing time request since this is one of their prime objectives. This season the LMSA is attempting to expand its program to four divisions which will enable more youngsters to play soccer at their own level of competition. The four divisions will be based on age groups which will range from 8-10 year olds, 10-12. 12-14 and 14-16. Meanwhile Pepsi-Cola, represented by Peter Enns, announced their intentions to help promote the soccer program as much as possible this year. "Our company is willing to help advertise and promote the minor soccer program in the city as much as possible, mainly in the areas of public service and printing he said. Rollingson sharp gal Seven members of the Lethbridge Coulee Kruzers four wheel drive jeep club travelled to Missoula, Morif. over the weekend and were sparked by Kathy Rollingson. Rollingson brought home enough silverware to go around the whole group of seven who made the trip. She won the top eliminator and then followed up by winning first place trophies in the women's "obstacle and specialty and also placed second in the women's hill climb. William Landrey, of the Lethbridge club, was second in the V-8 modified category. "Since our company is sponsoring the Canadian minor soccer championships this year, we're more than willing to help develop a program in the he added. With the assistance of the two local groups, the LMSA seems 'well on their way. However, this is not the case since the LMSA still needs more volunteers in the areas of coaching, managing and officiating. Should anyone be interested in helping in any of these areas, they can contact LMSA president Nigel Alexander or any of the other 1974 board of directors which include vice president Joe Vazari. secretary Ian Gray, treasurer Paul Arcand and referee in chief Fritz Heinrich. Soviets, Czechs share Cup lead HELSINKI (CP) The So- viet Union trounced Finland 6- 1 Monday and moved into a tie with Czechoslovakia for top spot at the Group A world ice hockey championships. The Soviets, surprise losers to the Czechs last week, jumped into a 3-0 first-period lead, controlled play but didn't score in the second and then outscored the Finns 3-1 in the last period. The defending champions had an easy time of it against the team that upset the Czechs 5-2. but then had the decision taken from them because the Finnish goalie was found to have a banned drug in his bloodstream. The Swedes beat Czech- oslovakia 3-0 earlier Monday, thereby setting up the tight fit at the top. The Swedes, runners-up in last year's tournament in Moscow, have dropped well behind leaders here. But their victory over the team that last week smashed the Soviets 7-2 came very much against the trend of the match. The Czechoslovak forwards controlled the game in the first period, but it was Sweden's Dan Soederstroem who scored the only goal. At the end of the scoreless second period the Czech- oslovaks had fired 27 shots at the Swedish goal, compared with eight at their own goal, but brilliant goalkeeping by Curt Larsson held the second period level. Still battling uphill against the Czechoslovak onslaught, the Swedes added another two goals in the final period through Mats Aahlberg and Stefan Karlsson. Sweaters returned HAMILTON (CP) Three team sweaters stolen from the Football Hall of Fame have been recovered, director Larry Smith said today. The sweaters representing Edmonton Eskimos. Ottawa Rough Riders and Toronto Argonauts and worth each were reported missing when the hall closed Saturday. Mr. Smith said he believes youngsters took them from a display without realizing their value. He taped radio broadcasts asking they be returned, and saying no questions would be asked. Today, he received a telephone call from Sarnia. Ont.. and was told tourists had purchased the sweaters there from someone on the street, unaware they were stolen. The sweaters were to be shipped back here.
