The stocky centre scored twice for the Wings and set up a pair of goals by Danny Grant, taking a hand in all of his team's goals in a 4-4 tie with Minnesota North Stars. Dionne has been dominating the Wings' sputtering attack all season. The Wings have scored only 96 goals, the fourth-lowest total in the 18- team league, but Dionne has shared in 50 of them, with 19 goals and 31 assists. The Detroit captain tied the game at of the third pe- riod, scoring when Fred Barrett of Minnesota was off for holding. Grant, a former North Star, scored his second goal on a poke shot to bring his career goal total to 200. "Heck, yes, it meant some- thing to said Grant of his performance in his second game against his old club, which traded him for Henry Boucha, who was held off the scoresheet Thursday night. The goals were the 20th and 21st of the year for Grant, who extended his goal-scoring str- ing to eight games. He has produced 12 goals and five assists in his last nine games. In Thursday's other NHL games, Los Angeles Kings downed Vancouver Canucks 5- 1, Pittsburgh Penguins tied St. Louis Blues 2-2, Atlanta Flames edged New York Islanders 2-1, Buffalo Sabres topped Chicago Black Hawks 3-1 and Philadelphia Flyers topped Washington Capitals 4- 1. Backup goalie Gary Edwards sparkled for the Kings, who moved into a first- place tie with Montreal Canadiens in the Norris Divi- sion with their victory. Edwards plays in the shadow of regular Rogie Vachon, who has the league's top goals against average, but his 26 saves Thursday enabled him to run his record against the Smythe Division-leading Canucks to 9-1-2. Bob Berry, Dan Maloney; Frank St. Marseille, Whitey Widing and Mike Murphy were the Los Angeles scorers. Veteran Ed Johnston pre- served the Blues' tie with standout goaltending in the third period against Pitt- sburgh, stopping at least a half-dozen point-blank shots. Tim Ecclestone scored a short-handed goal on a play started by goalie Dan Bouchard to give the Flames their win. Buffalo swarmed over the Hawks, matching Chicago's game total with 18 shots on goal in the first period. Larry Carriere and Gil Perreault gave the Sabres a 2-0 lead in the first period. The win increased Buffalo's lead over second-place Boston Bruins in the Adams Division to seven points with its 15th win in 17 home games. The Flyers brought out a crowd of out at Lan- dover, Md., to see the Capitals lose their fifth in a row and the Flyers extend their un- beaten streak to 12 games with the help of a pair of goals by Bobby Clarke. Minnesota goaltender John Garrett sent Edmonton Oilers away mumbling to themselves Thursday night. The 23-year-old rookie blocked 53 shots for the North Stars in a 5-1 win over the Oilers in a World Hockey Association game before a crowd of at Edmonton Coliseum. Garrett, who played for Richmond Robins of the American Hockey League last season, lost his shutout in the first period when Ron Climie beat him on a rebound of Barry Long's shot while Ed- monton had a man ad- vantage. In contrast, Edmonton goalies Jacques Plante and Chris Worthy faced only 19 shots, but gave up two goals by Don Tannahill and one each by Mike Walton, Gordon Gallant and Mike Antonovich. Meanwhile, the future of Chicago Cougars remained in doubt. The Cougars are sched- uled to play the Toros in To- ronto tonight after calling off Thursday night's home game against Cleveland. WHA president Dennis Mur- phy was in Chicago Thursday to sit in on negotiations between Cougar owners Jordan and Walter Kaiser and a group headed by Chicago player-coach Pat Stapleton that has been trying to buy the team.
