Playing in the shadow of Johnny Bower and Plante, two NHL greats, hasn't helped his situation, but Gamble continues to fill the breach while bearing his share of the Leafs' grief to date.

Even a three-goal effort by England's World Cup ace, Fran- cis Lee, was pushed well down the list of highlights in a stun- ning clash in which Manchester City won 4-1 over Manchester United. The volatile Best, who plays for United, was booked by ref- eree John Homewood after a crunching tackle on City full- aack Glyn Pardoe, who was :aken from the field on a stretcher.
