The general manager of Boston Bruins watched his club lose 4-2 to Chicago in the opening game of the Stanley Cup semi-finals Thursday, but he saw weaknesses in the Black Hawks' defence. Wren Blair fired BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) Wren Blair was fired Friday as general manager of Minnesota North Stars, the National Hockey League team announced. Blair, who had been Min- nesota's general manager dur- ing the eight years the North Stars have been in the NHL, had two years remaining on his contract. Walter Bush Jr., North Stars president, said he hoped to reach a decision on a replacement for Blair within the next two to three weeks. "The North Stars appreciate the contributions Wren made to the organization during the last eight Bush said, "but we felt in view of last season's showing by the team that we had to make a change." Minnesota finished seventh in the eight-team West Division in the 1973-74 season and missed the Stanley Cup playoffs for only the second time in seven seasons. Bush said no decision had been made concerning the status of Parker MacDonald, who replaced Jack Gordon as coach last November. "Any decision on coaching will be made by me and the new general Bush said. Blair said he was dis- appointed and would have liked to remain in his post for at least one more season "But I have been well used by the North stars over the past eight years and I have lasted a long time by today's standards in this position." Blair, 48, is the last of the original general managers from the six 1967 expansion teams. Only three NHL general Ivan of Chicago Black Hawks, Sam Pollock of Montreal Canadiens and Emile Francis of New York Rangers have been in their posts longer than Blair. The North Stars hired Blair in 1966. He coached the team for one full season and parts of two others, compiling a 48-65- 34 record. CHINA EYES SOCCER ZURICH (AP) China has told the International Football Federation (FIFA) it is willing to seek membership if the world governing body of soccer excludes Taiwan. A FIFA announcement Friday said the Chinese Football Association submitted a provisional membership application containing such a stipulation. China left FIFA in 1958. May 8th thru Jun Only Regular Price per month cut off: May 15th, 19 lears _ OFFERED SAME RAtE NAMBUKPIE KUNG FU 258A 13th Street North Phont 328-1241 He admitted the weakness wasn't in the net, where Tony Esposito blocked 46 of the 48 shots the Bruins fired his way. "I never saw any better he conceded. "The Chicago defence made about 30 mistakes in their end of the ice. I don't think they can do that two games in a row and get away with it.'' If Sinden's estimate of the number of mistakes is close to being accurate, the Bruins may get back into the series in Sunday afternoon's second game of the best-of-seven series. But Chicago's success this year was based largely on de- fence. Finishing second in the West Division, the Hawks gave up only 164 goals in 78 games and Esposito shared the Vezina Trophy with Bernie Parent of Philadelphia Flyers. If regular-season perform- ances are any most so-called' experts say they are has the YOU'VE BEEN GOIN'ON ABOUT US A WILL OUT, PET-SO I SOUGHT A COUPLE OF TO MV DEAR WIFE I LEAVE MY ENTIRE WORLDLY GOODS Schultz might become Clarke's Godfather PHILADELPHIA (CP) Philadelphia Flyers might have only one of their three regular lines intact for tonight's first game of their best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi-final against New York Rangers Coach Fred Shero said Friday night that he is planning changes which would leave Ross Lonsberry, Rick McLeish and Gary Dornhoefer the only line intact for the game which starts at p m. EST. The second game of the Na- tional Hockey League series will be played here Tuesday night. Shero said left-winger Dave Schultz, whose 348 minutes in penalties in 73 league games this season set an NHL record, may be shifted to a line with Bobby Clarke and right-winger Bill Flett to protect the talented centre should the New York club decide to use rough tactics against Clarke. Schultz can also score and in addition to his 20 goals in regular season play, his overtime goal in the fourth game of the Flyers' quarter- final round against Atlanta Flames sent Philadelphia to the semi-finals. BARBER WOULD MOVE Bill Barber, who normally plays left wing on Clarke's line, would line up with Orest Kindrachuk and right-winger Don Saleski in the event Schultz is moved. Shero has maintained that the Rangers could be the sleeper team of this year's playoffs and his theory was partly borne out when the New York team disposed of the defending champion Montreal Canadiens in six games of the quarter-finals. Shero concedes that New York centres Jean Ratelle, Pete Stemkowski and Walt Tkaczuk may well outduel his own men on the faceoffs. Therefore, he said he may use utility forward Terry Crisp to a greater extent in an attempt to gain an advantage on the draws Shero was asked if he had any definite plans to send his men to stop the wandering of Ranger goalie Ed Giacomin. He noted that there was an unwritten law in hockey that a team would not attempt to rough up another club's goaltender. but he said there were ways to impede the progress of a wandering goalie without resorting to illegal tactics. He noted the Russians' had found a method of checking Ken Dryden and cutting off his retreat to his net during the Team Canada-Soviet Union series in 1972. Last spring the Rangers eliminated the then defending champion Boston Bruins in five games of their quarter- final but then lost to Chicago Black Hawks in five games of the semi-final. However, the Rangers were one of the few teams to con- sistently hold their own against the Flyers this season. In five meetings, the Flyers managed only one victory in two ties against the New Yorkers. Bears, Reds post wins THE CANADIAN PRESS Hershey Bears and Provi- dence Reds posted overtime victories Friday in semi-final action in the American Hockey League.

Return games will be played on both series tonight. FOR THE HUNTING ENTHUSIAST SUZUKI RV's 50cc-90cc- 125cc The Motorcycle that will take you over any terrain.

In five meetings between the teams, Chicago won two and the others were tied. And the Hawks, despite being noted for defence, outscored the Bruins 18-13. Mike Veiser, Chicago's backup'goalie, described Espo as a ''four-by-six brick wall Bep Guidolin, Boston's coach, said that if Esposito is as hot in Sunday's game as he was in Thursday's "we'll just have to go out and hire'a gun, that's all." "I thought (Doug) Fa veil was tough in that first series, but I've never seen anybody make such saves as Esposito did" Favell played excellent goal for Toronto Maple Leafs in three Johnson played in the the quarter-final series, but the Leafs went out four straight, anyway. Meanwhile, reporters continued to be incensed at the clubs for not letting them into the dressing rooms after the game and being generally incommunicative Friday. ''I talked to you guys last night... and that's all I've got to said Guidolin when asked for an interview. His Chicago counterpart. Billy Reay, defended his action of the previous night when he closed the Hawks room to reporters, with only himself and designated speaker Stan Mikita fielding questions from the press. "If it's closed to radio and television, then as far as I'm concerned, it's closed to the pre." guys." Reay said. "I know it's unfair, but if it's go- ing to be open, it should be 100 per cent." A National Hockey League rule forbids radio and television interviews of players during the playoffs for up to 12 hours after a game.
