Ken Hodge, is third in the scor ing race with 44 points, three more than another Boston righ winger, John McKerizie. Never in NHL history has a team had four players at the top of the scoring list, and tire way the Bruins are scoring goals, they could be (he firs club to accomplish that feat. Last week the Bruin stretched their winning streak to eight games, the longest by a Boston team since the 1938-39 season when that club won the last eight games of the regular schedule. The Boston club record, which is also an NHL record, is 14 games, set from Dec. 3 througl' Jan. 9, 1929-30. Later that same season the Bruins won 11 straight. While the Bruins, with 147 goals in 32 games, are almosl half-way to then- record 303 goals set in 1968-69, they are having difficulty opening a big lead over second-place New York Bangers in the East Divi- sion race. The Bruins have 49 points, two more than the Rangers. New York is staying close to the Bruins primarily on the defen- sive strength of the club. This is reflected by the goals-against average recorded by Ed Gia- comin and Gilles Villemure, who lead the goaltending race with a 1.93 average. Giacomin is the shutout leader with four. Only one Ranger is in the top 21 scorers. He is centre Jean Ratelle with 35 points, including 17 goals. Ratelle is tied with John Bucyk of Boston for sev- enth place. There are six Bruins among the leaders, the other being Wayne Cashman, who has 34 points. SCORIN9 LEADERS Esposlto, Bos Orr, Bos Hodge, Bos McKenzie, Sos B.

Kings lose valuables in Ponoka Two encounters rescheduJ The Alberta Junior Hockey League announced Monday that '.wo Christmas holiday season [ames between the Lethbridge Sugar Kings and Calgary Cou- ;ars have been rescheduled. A game in Lethbridge De- cember 26 has been resched- uled for February 11, 1971 and 1 game scheduled for Calgary December 27 will be played February 4, 1971. It was also announced that Alf Cadman, coach of the 1969- 70 champion Red Deer Hustlers will coach the Alberta Junior Hockey League All-stars in the League's first annual All-star game January 22, 1971 against the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Oil Kings are currently the leaders of the Western divi- sion of the Western Canada Hockey League. The AJHL team will be se- lected by the coaches and man- agers of the six teams and by press representatives in each centre. Twelve players will be select- ed by the poll and Cadman will fill out tire roster by adding other players for the game slated in Red Deer. In Ponoka last weekend the Sugar Kings won the contest 5-3 but lost in the way of personnel valuables. When the game was In pro- gress some unknown culprits made their way into the Sugar King dressing room and left without missing a thing. Most of the Sugar King play- ers were intending to leave their separate ways, heading home for the Christmas break after Uie Red Deer Rustlers en- counter Sunday afternoon. This left the dressing room loaded. Approximately 150 dollars in cash along with some expensive watches and rings were lifted from the players' pockets. They even went as far as borrorwing Ken Chalmer's teeth which ars obviously no use to them. After their little escapade In the dressing room they decided to try the Kings' bus. Finding only a half a case of pop they decided to have some fun and tore the buttons off coach John Chapman's coat while adding a few more holes to garment. Road blocks and police patrolled the area, but to no avail. As Kings' manager Syd Hall stated, "We can only hope that one of the watches or a ring will show un for a lead."
