However, the Rangers still must go another eight games without a loss before breaking the league's undefeated home record, held by Montreal Cana- diens. The Montreal team, dur- ing the period March 13, 1943 to Nov. 2, 1914, went 28 games un- defeated, winning 24 and tying four. TAKE FIRST The streaking Rangers, who are keeping pace with Boston Bruins for top spot in the NHL's East Division, have lost only two of their last 18 games and their win Tuesday over the Seals, cellar-dwellers in the West Division, moved them into first place with 54 points, one more than the Bruins: Rod Gilbert, Dave Balon and Arnie Brown provided the scor- ing for the Rangers before the Garden's fans while Don 15 j O'Donoghuc and Billy Hicke scored for the Seals.

Who else but Orr as top male athle By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor Bobby Orr, hailed as greatest player ever to "the don is the runaway choice as Canada's male athlete of 1970. OIT, at 22, dominated the Na- tional Hockey League to win the Ross, Hart, Norris and Smythe trophies as the scoring cham- pion, most valuable player, top defenceman and most valuable player in the Stanley Cup play- offs. He was chosen Sporfaman-of- the-Year by Sports Illustrated and won the Lou Marsh trophy, presented by the Toronto Star to the person chosen in a news- paper poll as Canada's out- standing athlete of the year. In the annual poll conducted by The Canadian Press among sports writers and broadcasters across the country, it was no- contest. The young Boston Bruins de- fenceman took all but 29 of 153 first-placs votes cast: Points were awarded on a 3-2-1 basis for first, second and third and 124, 30 and a total of 415 points. JENKINS SECOND Ferguson Jenkins of Chatham, Ont., who pitched his fourth consecutive 20-game sea- son for Chicago'Cubs and is a former athlete-of-the-year win- ner, was runner-up with 148 points. Jenkins edged Sandy Hawky of Whilby, Ont., who polled 134 points. Canadian champion jockey for two years in a row, he is second to Willie Shoe- maker in victories in a single year. The voters considered 33 ath- letes, but few outside the top thres drew more than a handful of'votes. Jamie Paulson of Calgary, badminton gold-medal winner at the British Commonwealth Games, pulled six second-place votes and eight for third. Tony Esposito, rookie of -the year i nthe NHL and Vezina trophy goalie with Chicago Black Hawks, got three for second and four for third. Bill Mahony, Canadian swim star at the Commonwealth Games, got two first-place voles, three for second and six for third. Balloting for Canadian athlete of the year was complete when Orr won the Star and Sports Il- lustrated awards. Jenkins, by winning 20 or more in four consecutive years, has proven to be the most relia- ble pitcher in the majors. Only Russ Ford of Brandon, who pitched 91 victories in the early 1000s, has a better victory record among Canadians and Jenkins is expected to pass that year. Hawley, who began his racing year in Tropical Park, Miami, carried his hot streak back into Ontario tracks. He had a record 354 victories in Canada includ- ing 21 in stakes races such as the Queen's Plate and the Prince of Wales. Ironically, when he returned to Tropical to finish out his as- sault on Shoemaker's record o! 485, he was able to attract few mounts) Of the ones he did get, few were considered top rides. Hawley's hot streak died just before Christmas, but he was still the hottest jockey in the world for 1970. r.OnilY OUR Canada's (op male athlele (or 1970.
