STRONG-HEARTED DOM-LOVING Evenson to Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) Ottawa Rough Riders got some run- ning power Monday by ac- quiring fullback Jim Evenson from British Columbia Lions in return for linebacker Barry Ardern and defensive lines- man Gus Revenburg, both Ca- nadians. Evenson, 26, is regarded as one of the top fullbacks in the Canadian Football League and, according to Ottawa coach Jack Gotta, gave Riders more trouble than any other ball- carrier in the league. "He's bound to make a tre- mendous difference in our scor- ing moves." Gotta told a news conference. Revenburg already has been transferred to Vancouver by his business firm and he wasn't going to be available to Riders this season. This was a factor in the trade. Golia said. Gotta said Lions coach Eagle Keys insisted on having Ar- dern as part of the trade.

MONTREAL (CP) Were Montreal Canidknc. running scared in the opening game of their Stanley Cup semi-final series against Philadelphia Fly- ers? Flyers defenceman Andre 'Dupont dunks so. Are the Flyers really that tough? Montreal captain Henri Richard thinks not. Will tonight's second game here be rougher than the first in which only eight minor pen- allies were called? Flyers' coach Fred Shero says yes. Canadiens' players were I waiting for the blond to flow." said Dupont of the first game which Philadelphia won 5-4 on an overtime goal by Rick MacLeish. "They were afraid of their own shadows. "We conducted ourselves like little angeis. Imagine how they would have acted if we had really started hitting them. Why hide it? We received instruc- tions to lay off the fighting and stick to hockey. "We outplayed the Canadiens and if it hadn't been for Ken Dryden and his miraculous saves, the Canadiens never would have been in the game." what's there to be worried There are three doubtful starters on the Montreal side for the clash. Winger Murray Wilson and defenceman Jacques Laperriere are both nursing leg 'injuries while Marc Tardif is still being bothered by a cut he picked up in the fifth game of the quarter-final against Buffalo last Tuesday. Tardif practised Monday but the other two did not. The Flyers are healthy except for what Shero said were "a couple of minor injuries." did not elaborate. After tonight's game, the series shifts to Philadelphia for game No. 3 Thursday night.' Reay says he'll settle for a split on the road NOT ROUGH By now. everyone has agreed that Saturday's opener was not the battle that was expected. The only hint of fistic activity came in the first period when Montreal defenceman Larry Robinson and the Flyers' Dave Schultz exchanged icy glares. One thing was evident times, Cana- diens' forwards shied away from the corners. And perhaps the most startling contrast in the game was the way the Fly- ers were clearing the front of their net and the way Montreal was not. Richard hopes Philadelphia's tough-guy image isn't worrying his team-mates. "I hope it isn't bothering any- he said. "It certainly isn't bothering me. But we weren't skating well in the first period on Saturday and we've got to go all out for three periods. "When we're skating and shooting the way we can, it doesn't matter whether they put bulldozers out there against us. j We'll just go around them." i Richard, an 18-year veteran in the National Hockey League, has seen .tougher teams before. such as the Bruins of a couple of years ago. The Pocket Rocket has never (backed down from a fight de- spite has small stature (five feet, seven He took two bone-crushing body-checks in Saturday's game, but still was one of the more effective Mon- treal players. "You get a little concerned when you hear and read stories on how tough a team is sup- posed to be. But when I got on the ice, I forgot it completely. "When you're playing hockey, all you have to do is stand up there and face the guy no mat- ter how bog he is. Especially in playoff hockey. None of them want to get thrown out of a game." "Who's Schultz? Whats' he ever done? A rookie. Same with (Don) Saleski. Big tall guy NEW YORK (CP) Coach Billy Reay of Chicago Black Hawks admittedly is a goalie's man. After all, he's got Tony Esposito. "If you get good goaltending and you capitalize on your chances you do all Reay said Monday night in giving his capsule advice on how to win in the playoffs. Reay admits he would be sat- isfied with a split in the next two National Hockey League semii-final games against the Rangers in New York. "If that happens the pend- ulum would swing a little our way." he said a few hours after the Black Hawks arrived in New York for tonight's third game of the best-of-seven series New York and Chicago are even l-i and a split of the games tonight and Thursday right in Madison Square Gar- den would leave the clubs tied 2-2. Chicago would have the ad- vantage of home ice for the fifth and seventh games if the series goes the distance. Reay was running the team mainly by hotel telephone and meetings in his room. There was no practice in Chicago Monday after Sunday's 5-4 vic- tory over the Rangers and there will be none between games while the Black Hawks are in New York. Reay isn't worried about the workouts the Rangers hold on a he said. His players get enough skating in the series. Reay called the Rangers a Long Island rink. "Everybody to their own "good, well-balanced a much better one than St. Louis Blues, efimifiated by Chicago in the quarter-final four games to one. Reay was a little concerned about injuries: "Injuries play a vital part in a series like this." Chicago defenceman Keith Magnuson suffered a broken jaw in Sunday's game when hit j by a puck off the stick of Brad Park of the Rangers. Reay said both sides of Magnuson's lower jaw were fractured and a spe- cial protective device will have to be made before he can play. He didn't know when Magnu- son would be able to rejoin the Black Hawks, but he wouldn't discount him entirely for the rest of the season. Pit Martin, who centres Chi- cago's No. 1 line with Dennis Hull and Jim Pappin on the wings, is suffering from a groin injury, and Reay said he's "still not right." The Black Hawks have both depth and defence as well as goal-tending, and their power was shown Sunday as they bounced back from a 4-1 defeat in the opener Thursday. Pete Stemkowski, one of the Ranger standouts in the rout of Boston Bruins, hasn't scored in two games against the Black Hawks. "The Black Hawks stand up at the blue line all the the Stemmer said. "Maybe they're one of the best in hockey for standing up and blocking your way." Reay and Emile Francis, gen- eral manager-coach of the Rangers, stuck to their estab- 'ished practice of not naming their starting goalies before game p.m. MST. The Chicago coach noted that Gary Smith always had done well in New York against the Rangers, and he might be a surprise starter. Francis probably will go with Ed Giacomin, whom he pulled Sunday after the first period with the Black Hawks leading 3- 1. The Rangers rallied to tie the game 3-3 with Gilles Villemure in the nets before Hull and Dick Redmond got the big ones for Chicago.
