As Eddie Westfatt put it: "Now we've opened UK door, we've got to get through it We're going to meet the beat in other divtaka. certainly tft- the best in 0ws. The Bruins won the Stan- ley Cup in 1941. While out-tbtxtag the Blact Hawks 54 to 24 Sunday, Chicago was a far different dub ten the one that vac eaaiiy handed by the Bruins in the first tone games. EXCHANGE LEAD Boston opened a 2-0 lead after the first period, but Chicago re- bounded ink) a 3-2 second period lead before the Bruin defences tightened again. The teams were tied 3-3 going into the final 20 minutes of regulation time. The Black Harts shot into tbe lead again early in the third glove and stick and tore off his mack to protest that tbe puck bada't crossed the line. Then in the third period, WesUaU hooked Bobby Hull OB a breakaway and while he was off, Campbell cracked in his first piayoff goal on a play with Vfpatttm and Dennis Hull. Of McKemJe's goal, StanfieU picked up an said: "I knew he'd put it in. I couldn't shoot myself, it would have taken too much time to come around. I saw Johnny going in and knew we had it. I kntw if we tied it tip we'd win it." Bucyk said: "I've waited a long seems forever. 1 hope this is our year." Bobby Orr was the sobering influence for the Bruins. In' the second period alone, the all-star defenceman and scoring cham- pion spent nearly 13 minutes on the ice. 'I didn't realize Orr was on the ice so Sinden said. 'He handles the puck so much that you get used to seeing bin: with it, "We didn't skate in the first part of the second period. II took eight minutes for us to get skating again. It happened early enough in fee game that we were able to recover. If it had jappeced in the third period, we would have been in trouble." HULL, MIKITA STOPPED SirxJen summed up: "Two things we had to do In this Bobby Hull and stop Stan tlikita. And we did it." 'Vestfall had the of check- lag Hull and held the Golden Jet scoreless in the series. "It's not a nice he said. "But it is a necessary evil.

''We don't break the AHA agreement with the Na- onal Hockey League. They can raft the players at 59 if they ant to. But we want to be ble to use the older players or two reasons. "We can't have a boy In ege for one or two years then rop him and ive need the older ilayers to give us better cali- ire of play." The league will also recom- mend to the CAHA that there be unlimited inter-branch trans- ers for Junior "A" competi- km next season, but no east- west transfers. Tte league also issued a news release saying its operators recognized the Western Canada Hockey League. "The operators of !he exist ing AJHL clubs express the de- sire to meet with the indepen- dent WCHL in an effort to bet- ter junior hockey in western Canada. They wish it known they recognize the WCHL and have appointed a committee to ttempt to lay '.h vpruund rotes for such a meeting."

The other two were not an- nounced. and Douglass had 74s Crampton blew to a 76. The final 'round was never really close. Jacklin trailed the quiet, con servative Beard by two strokes going into the final round, but went'over par on the first hole en route to a front nine 33, two over par. Beard, meanwhile, birdied the eighth and ninth holes, went out in 34 and held a six-stroke lead at the turn. No one ever again period before the compSerion of the game changed in Boston'! favor. The end came with less than two minutes remaining when Johnm- McKenne, the scrappy Bruin'righl winger, pounced on a pass in front of tbe Chicago goal and rifted it by a screened Tony Esposito. "1 never saw it go in. I just shot said McKenrie who was mobbed by his team-mates and was engulfed in the thun- derous accolades of 14.K5 parti san Boston fans. Don Johnny Bueyk Fred Stanfield and Ken Hodge were tbe other Boston narks- men. Deimis Hull tallied twice for the Black Hawks.
