But the banner, and dozens more like it around the arena, indicated more Han a belief in Les Biniley's as Pittsburgh Penguins' goal- lender. The banners, signs and pos- ters showed that lacs here are beginning to take a keen inter- est in their National Hockey League club, especially now thai the Penguins are in the Stanley Cup semi-final playoffs against St. Louis Blues. A record crowd of fans timed out Thursday night to cheer, clap, slomp and wave their banners as the Penguins Louis 3-2 to cut the ues1 lead in the best-of-seven to 2-1- The crowd was small corn- red with attendance 'at most fr league cities, but it was a 11-out here where the local lena has a listed seating ca- pacity o( The crowd was even more re- arkable in view ol the fad the ittsburgh Pirates had t Na- oral League baseball game iiere the same night.

Bobby Hull? Tony Esposito? Stan Mildta? rookie Gerry Finder. The Boston fans still respect the booming shot of Bobby Hull. They feel a liltle coirpassion for Tony Esposito, whose brother Phil is having a much better Stanley Cup playoli for Ihe Bruins than Tony is in goal for Chicago. Stan Jlikila puzzles hasn't broSen out with the pro- duction of which they know he is capable. Bui why hate Gerry Finder? Well, it was Finder who shot the puck on a disputed goal which cost the Bruins their only home loss to Ihe Hawks this season. The 1-C victory last Jan. 17, is the only victory Chicago has won here since 1967- Pinder's shot bounced along the goal-line and out again. The goal judge didn't flash the light the referee skated over and said il was a goal. From thru on, the kid from Saskstcon didn't have a prayer of winning a citizen-ot-the-year award in Boston. Gerry is one of the youngsters picked up by Chicago in Hie re- building 'job which look the club from last lo first in the Ivaliooal Hockey League in one year.
