By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor CHICAGO (CP) -Boston Bruins, with momentum going for them, are due to sneak in today for their best-of-seven series, with the rested Chicago Black Hawks in the Eastern Division playoff final of the National Hockey League. The Bruins, fresh from their brawling 4-2 eastern, semi-final series victory over New York Rangers, will be taken into seclusion by coach Harry Sinden until the' opening whistle at 2 p.m. EST Sunday. All the Boston players were reported* healthy. Chicago, practising and resting for the last week after sweeping their semi-finals against Detroit Red Wings in four games, will work out again today. Rookie defenceman Keith Magnusson had to be coaxed off the ice Friday at practice by trainer Lou Varga. "This is the way it should be," Varga said. "Us and Boston-we went to the wire for first place, played even against each other over the season and played some great games." Chicago coach Billy Reay dec lines to,predict how long the series will go. "After a season like this, who can predict any thing?" he said. "There is going to be a lot of hard checking and lot of fore-checking by both sides. I hope the, winner has something left for the final." PUTS DOWN DEFENCE Winger Cliff Koroll feels Bos ton's strong-armed style' of play is over-rated and says Bob Baun and Ron Harris of Detroit are tougher than any Boston defensive pairing, "Boston's defencemen really haven't given me much trouble," Koroll said. Magnusson said he was concerned about his club's week-long layoff. "I'm just afraid we will be flat for at least the first period of the first game," he said "The layoff has to take something out of us." The rookie isn't overawed by his first Stanley Cup playoff. "We had such a tough race that the playoffs didn't seem too imposing." Chicago and Boston tied for first place in the Eastern Division with 99 points each but the Hawks officially took the Prince of Wales Cup by virtue of having won more games-45 to 40. Boston, however, has outscored the Hawks 21 goals to 19 in games between the two teams Tony Esposito, the rookie goalie who won the Vezina Trophy in carrying the Hawks to the eastern title, gets his big tune-up today. "I've been building up slowly during these workouts, and tomorrow they better force me to extend myself," he said. "I need a hard workout." St. Louis Blues are aiming at their third try for the Stanley Cup and National Hockey League playoff supremacy when they open their best-of-seven semi-final Sunday against Pittsburgh Penguins. And they have a lot going for them-momentum, experience, perhaps the most aggressive home fans in the league and Norm Kramer.

(TEXACOl El Rcmcho Texaco Service 6th Ave. and Mayor Magrath Drive South PHONE 327.5406 resting since bouncing Oakland Seals out-of contention in four straight games, the Blues have been battling the tenacious Minnesota North Stars through a six-game quarter-final. They finally clinched their semi-final berth Thursday night. And, they did it just the way they wanted, before their exhub-erant fans under the imaginative direction of arena organist Norm Kramer, credited throughout the league as being a major factor in the Blues dominance of the Western Division throughout it's three-year existence. S'o dominant have the Blues been that they have Won the division every year, overcome two previous challenges to their playoff position and gone to the final in both previous tries. In 1868 the Blues battled the North Stars through a blistering seven-game final that included four overtime engagements before running headlong in to Montreal Canadiens and dying in four straight one-goal losses. Last year the Blues clobbered Los Angeles Kings in four straight semi-final games before dropping another straight set to the Canadiens. This year they face Red Kelly's surging Penguins, their closest rivals over the regular season, although second in the final standings by a gaping 22 points. Most experts expect the Blues to make the final for the third straight year, on the basis of their final league standing, their playoff maturity and the roof-raising support they get from | SULLY SAYS � -By Pat Sullivan] ^LTHOUGH it grieves me to say it, the best teams emerged with the spoils in the eastern division quarter-finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs. After watching a good portion of both series I have to say justice prevailed. With Boston Bruins and Chicago Black Hawks meeting in the eastern final the stage is set for what could be a repeat of last year's tremendous battle between the same Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens. 'In the west Scotty Bowman has Ms St. Louis .Blues back on track after being stopped twice by Minnesota North Stars. The Blues had not lost to any western division team in the playoffs in two seasons. Some felt the Blues could be had but they showed they still are the team to beat in the west. But how do you like those Pittsburgh Penguins? The first time they make the playoffs and look what they do. They send Earl Ingarfield and his Oakland Seals' mates packing for a long summer. The Penguins won't be giyen much of a chance to unseat the Blues in the western final but they could surprise a few people. The one sure thing is that the Red Kelly-coached Penguins will make the Blues realize they have been in a series. It has been said before and will more than likely be said on numerous occasions during the Boston-Chicago final, when the eastern winner meets the west division champions for the Stanley Cup it will be anti-climatic. Even-1 couldn?t go wrong picking the east over the west and I don't have to remind you how bad I've been picking them this yeah If the west were to win the Stanley Cup it would set the. league back another five years. Enough watering down was done in the first expansion and-yet another comes up for next season. If the established east was to give up the.coveted Stanley Cup it would be a major disaster. It would make the World Series triumph by the New York Mets seem as though- the Mets had a dynasty going for them. It would be as embarrassing as. if the Russians were to defeat the Stanley Cup champions in a seven-game world series of hockey. With regards to the final series featuring the Bruins and Hawks this one could be a dandy. It has all the ingredients of being a real barn-burner. There is nothing missing. Very little to choose between the two clubs. Both have skaters, hitters, checkers, You name it, they have it. A great deal of the attention, when not on Bobby Orr, Bobby Hull or Stan Mikita, will be focused on the duel expected between Phil Esposito of the Bruins and his brother Tony of the Hawks. It should be a clash to match all clashes. Like two brothers fighting for the heavyweight championship of the world. Bets will be made as to who will hold the upper hand when all' is over. Will Phil score goals with his usual consistency? Will Tony concentrate on stopping his brother to allow other Bruins a better opportunity? This battle could have a very big effect on the outcome of the series which opens Sunday. It has to. I'm not picking either club to win it. I've already spent the grocery money watching Detroit go out in four games. I'll tell you one thing for almost positive (that's a beautiful statement) whoever collects will have to wait until at least the sixth game, maybe longer. Both clubs have the horses. For the Bruins the wait has been a long one. The Hawks were champions in 1961. This doesn't matter to them. They 'want to win this year. i Like I said before, it's your money, you bet it. But if you figure out a foolproof way of winning remember my number is in the book. THINK OF MOTHER! TRY A 1970 GENERAL ELECTRIC DISHWASHER FOR 5 DAYS AT NO CHARGE OR OBUGATION A model for every need and every budget the 16,000-plus fans that annually jam their way into the sweltering St. Louis Arena to cheer them on. But this year the script would be changed since the Canadiens failed to make the playoffs and the opposition will be either Boston Bruins or Chicago Black Hawks. Among the most mature of the Blues are their perennial scoring leaders Red Berenson, Ab McDonald and Phil Goyette, the only Western Division players among the playoff scoring leaders. Berenson is tied for fifth with nine points on four goals and five assists with McDonald sixth one five goals and three assists and Goyette tied for 10th spot on one goal and six assists. Berenson is in great company with Bobby Hull of Chicago and Rod Gilbert of New-York Rangers while Goyette is in the same playoff scoring class as S'tan Mikita of Chicago and Johnny McKenzie of Boston.
