The Penguins arrived here Monday evening for tonight's iflh game in their best-of-seven .semi-final playoff with the Blues. But instead of checking _ al the hotel where they usually stay, and where almost all major "league hockey, foot- iall ard baseball teams bed down, Kelly took his squad U> a different hotel downtown. The Pittsburgh coach tried la shrug off the move as insignificant. 'We're just changing hotels, that's he said. But Bill Hamilton, an admin- i s t r a t i v e assistant with the tockey club, revealed the super- stition involved. The Penguirs have not won a game all through the regular National Hockey League season or in the playoffs at St. Louis and the move to another hotel was de- signed to change their luck, Hamilton said. The cheers of the home fans have favored both clubs so far, with the Blues winning the first games here and the Pen- guins taking the next, two at Pittsburgh. A sixth game will be played at Pittsburgh Thurs- day and a seventh, if necessary, back here Sunday. PENGUINS STILL IN But although the Blues have the advantage of home ice should the series go On full seven games, some hockey ob- servers are not yet ready to count the Penguins out. "They were a tough club to beat all said coach Claude Ruel of Montreal Cana- dicns after he watched the Pen- guin, on Hie other hand, made it into the playoffs for the first time, finishing second in the Wfet Division behind the cham- pion Blues, after two cousecu- tive in fifth cpot. Wren Blair, general maaager of Minnesota North Stars who lost their quarter-fhal series with the Blurs In six games, said St. Louts looked flat in its toss to the Penguins Sunday. "No resemblance to how they looked against said Blair. "The Blues can't afford to fool around too long with this club, though. They're a hungry bunch. They've never been in the final before and they want that money." The Penguins, of course, know Southern Games Set For Summer By THE CANADIAN PRESS Cleveland lefthander Sam McDowell moved into 32nd place in the all-time major league strikeout list.

Aguirre walked Bob Robertson, but Clemente was nailed in a run- down when Al Oliver tapped back to the mound. Regan then came on and got Jerry May to bounce into a'game-ending force play. Philadelphia Phillies edged Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 in the only other NL action. Mon- real's scheduled game at San Diego was rained out. Decker, 23, is in his sixth year is a pro. But his development was slowed in when he attended Arizona State Uni- versity and didn't play baseball until June. "By the time I was ready lo pitch, the season was half he said. "What compli- cated things even morts was the fact that I'm a slow starter." Decker didn't get to the Cubs' camp until mid-March this year after a five-monUi bitch in the National Guard. The Cubs' run Monday was unearned and came with two out in the third inning when Glenn Beckert tripled off Steve Blass and scored when catcher Manny Sanguillen let the reay- get by him for an error. The Phillies ran their winning leak to five games thanks lo a potent bat of Rick Wise, a ood-Mtting pitcher.
