Back, left to right, second Dennis Nate and lead Mona Stewart. Voyageurs go three up rs won to see Dryden gone PHILADELPHIA (CP) Coach Fred Shero of Phila- delphia Flyers would like to, somehow, get goalie Ken Dry- den out of the Montreal Cana- dians nets long enough to put some goals in. Dryden proved to be the key player again Sunday as he backed the Canadiens in a 4-1 victory which ssnt Montreal home with a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi- final. "To beat Ken Dryden said Shero, "you'd have had to jmll him." But it's unlikely the Cana- diens will take Drvden out of the nets when the clubs meet in Montreal Tuesday night for the fifth game. "It's not going to be easy for but it's not impossible to sdd Shero, looking ahead to what could be his team's last game. Crusaders are alive, Jets blank Houston 2-0 By THE CANADIAN PRESS Luck appeared to change sides Sunday as CJevelanc Crusaders staved off elimina- tion from the World Hockey As- sociation semi-final playoffs. "We got some breaks and maybe we wore them down a said Gary Jarrett who scored three goals to lead the Crusaders in a 5-2 victory over NPVV England Whalers. The Whalers had won Sate' day's game 5-4 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and the Crusaders' comeback forces the fifth game Thursday night in Boston. Jets, meanwhile, continued undefeated against Houston Aeros after a 2-0 vic- tory at Winnipeg Sunday. The Jets will be seeking their third straight win when the teams move to Houston for the next game night. Jarrett pointed out that it had been the Whalers who had luck on their side in winning the first three games by one-goal mar- gins. DIDN'T HIT POSTS "A few breaks went our way today. We weren't hitting any cross bars and posts as v.e did in the other games." It was Jarrett's second three- goal game of the playoffs. He had one earlier in the quarter- final series against Philadelphia Blazers. New England coach Jack Kel- ley agreed that breaks made a big difference in Sunday's game. "If the puck had bounced a little our way, we still could have done it." Ron Buchanan scored twice for the Crusaders Sunday and goalie Gerry Cheevers stopped By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nova Scotia Voyageurs con- tinued their romp toward the American Hockey League finals Sunday night, but Cincinnati Swords cut down Virginia Red Winfs bit! for their second con- secutive victory.

John Danby suffered a shoulder separation and Terry Caffery a knee injury in Saturday's game while Mike Byers remained out with a back injury suffered in the quarter-finals against Ot- tawa Nationals. Danby was expected to have surgery on the shoulder today. "Any time you don't have key personnel in there it's going to said Kelley who expects to have Caffery and Byers back for Thursday's game. Saturday, Tim Sheahy scored 1 once to break a 3-3 third-period 1 tie and then added a second I goal to give New England the win. Guv Smith, Jim Dorey and Larry Pleau got the other Wha- lers' goals. Buchanan also scored twice for the Crusaders j Saturday while Ted Hodgson and Jarrett each got one. I ROUSSEAU REDEEMED j At Winnipeg, the teams went through two scoreless periods j before Dune Rousseau beat j Houston goalie Don McLeod j late in the third period and Norm Beaudin added another i goal into an empty net after I McLecd was lifted for an extra attacker in the final minute. Rousseau's goal made for an infraction he committed in the firet period which erased ai goal by Milt Black.! Black scored at just a sec-' ond after referee Brent Cassel- man pointed the finger at Rousseau for cross-checking. Goalie Ernie Wakely was out- standing for Winnipeg as Hous- ton outshot the Jets 28-27 and controlled the play for much of the final two periods. Jets' winger Garth Rizutto said he didn't think Houston could play the same tough hockey all the way through the series. "But if you have to scramble like this to win at home, you Dryden allowed the Flyers the first goal by centre Bobby Clarke at of ths opening period Sunday with team-mate Jim Roberts serving a penalty, but shut out the Philadelphia team for the remainder of the game. He wound up blocking 31 of 32 shots. Meanwhile, the Canadiens scored three times in the middle period with centre Re- jean Houle first beating Doug Favell at when he in Pierre Bouchard's point shot. Then left-winger Marc Tardif at and Yvan Cournoyer at supplied the Canadiens with power-play goals and a 3-1 lead. Frank Mahovlich shot the puck into de'nhia net period with Favell on the bench.

Dryden worked under incred- ible pressure for 83 seconds early in the second period as first Larry Robinson and then Roberts were ruled off by ref- eree Art Skov for e hooking infractions at and respectively. LOST STICK To make matters worse, and in the midst of the Philadelphia barrage, Montreal deienesman Serge Savard broke his stick and the Canadiens couldn't get a stop in play to aHow Savard to get a replacement. The Flyers, with the most vaunted power-D'ay attack in the National Hockey League during the regular season as they led all teams with 74 goals in 256 opportunities, blew an- other chance late in the second period and early in the third. Robinson drew a five-minute I-.igh-sticldng maior at 17-23 of ths middle period when he acci- o'ental'y clipped Clarke with his stick and drew blood. The Flyers managed only two shots during the time Robinson was off. and Montreal coach Scolty Bowman said that Sav- ard and Guy Lapointe had been his defencemen through most of the major penalty. GAME CHANGED "I think when we killed that double minor and they failed to exploit it that was the key to the game." Bowman said. "I thought if we scored then the pressure would really be on Shero said. "We bad played our best hit- ting and skating period of the series in the first 20 minutes, but it's hard to keep up that kind of hitting for three periods. But when we had the two-man advantage we couldn't make Dryden commit just kept standing up.'' Centre Rick MacLeish a 50- goal scorer for the Flyers dur- ing the regular season, returned to the Philadelphia lineup after j missing Thursday night's game, but still appeared bothered by the tonsilitis that had felled him and did not have the usual zip. "MacLeish was supposed to be the first man in to their Shero said, "but I guess he didn't have the zip." MacLeish, still coughing after the game, said he had been "pretty tired." "I've still got a bad couah and the heat bothered the 23-year-old centre said. "I lost eight or nine pounds because of it and I'm down to about 175." HURT HEEL While the Canadiens played without defenceman Jacques Laperierre. absent because of a severe groin pull, the Flyers feared for a time they had lost rookie leftwinger Bill Barber. He crashed heavily into the boards when checked by Jim Roberts and emerged from the game with a sore left heel. "It's sore and guess I bruised it, but I hone it's okay by Tuesday." Barber said. Philadelphia forward Gary, Dornboefer said the Flyers are not through yet Mon- treal's lone history of Stanley CUD victories. "Maybe they're supposed to Dornhoefer said, "but they haven't won the fourth game yet." j W.OWTPE4L PHILADELPHIA 1 1. PWlaiCtohta, Clirlre Penalties fiolstr's rest, OornlraeJer AShbee t.S7.
