The victory moved the Rangers into a first-place tie in the Eastern Division with Bos- ton Bruins, who were downed 4- 3 by Chicago Black Hawks de- spite the three-goal perform- ance of Phil Esposito, the Bos- ton centre and NHL scoring leader. Both Boston and New York now have 32 points on identical records of 14 wins, five losses and four ties. Another three-goal performer Wednesday night was Toronto's Dave Keon, who scored two of his goals while his team was shorthanded as the Maple Leafs shut out Los Angeles Kings 7-0. In other games, Montreal Canadians and Pittsburgh Pen- guins played to a 3-3 tie and Minnesota North Stors edged California Golden Seals 3-2. The Western-Division Blues also had a streak of their own before their game with the Rangers. Unbeaten in their last five games, they also had a record of seven wins, one loss and three ties against East-Divi- sion teams and until Wednesday night had lost only three games all season, fewer than any other club in the NHL. The Blues still have the few-' est losses in the NHL but the now must share that distinctio with the Black Hawks, who lea the second-place Blues by sfo points in the West. The Blues .held te Rangers in check for the first hvo periods allowing them only one goal, tip-in shot by Ted Irvine at of the second period. But in the third period Ron Stewart, Jean Ratelle and Dave Balon scorer, quick succession to offse third-period goals by Jim Lor entz and Jim Roberts. BRUINS-HAWKS TANGLE Besides Esposito's three goals, the Chicago-Boston gam was marred by a brawl late in the first period with the SCOT tied 2-2. Both benches emptiec after Chicago's Jim Pappin ani Bruin defeneeman Don Awrey came together at the Chicagi Blue line and fists started flying. After tempers cooled, referee John Ashley handed out five- minute penalties to Awrey, John McKenzie and Ted Green of th< Bruins and to Pappin, Keith Magnuson and Dan Maloney o: :he Hawks. Dennis Hull scored two goals or Chicago and the Black Hawks' victory also extendec ;heir unbeaten streak at home :o 13 games. Keon's two shorthanded goals gave him a total of six for the season and left him just one short of the NHL record oi seven shorthanded goals scored in a season by Jerry Toppazzini with Boston during the 1957-58 season. Keon dismissed as stupid any suggestion that he will be out to opple Toppaz2ani's record when reminded he was Hearing the mark. Discussing his penalty-killing assignment, Keon said: "I'm not out there to score goals. If I score (when the are it's an icddent." "If you play it right, then you get the he said. "If you tart gambling (for a then they'll get a point." FIRST LKAF SHUTOUT The shutout was the first this season for the Toronto team and w 74th in the career of Toronto goalie Jacques Plants who also ilayed with Montreal, New York and St. Louis. Pete Mahovlich's goal on a re- xnmd shot midway in the third jeriod gave the Canadiens the ie against the Penguins. Ken Schinkel was top scorer for Pittsburgh with two goals. The Minnesota-California rame also was marred by a ight which resulted in the ban- shment of Minnesota's Bill Goldsworthy and Dennis HextaJJ f California from the game. Tom Reid of the North Stars and Tony Featherstone of the Seals started the brawl near the ilinnesota nets during a Califor- nia power play. Both benches leaned as rights erupted with hree minutes left to play, Goldsworthy scored the win- ing goal for Minneota, his irst in 16 games.
