Boston Uruins werv: perhaps the happiest harti'xten as they sel dozens nf National Hockey League -coring and points'records. But ihdr bin- fill of bounty went sour when they went up against an un- known Montreal Cansdiens goalie in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Calgary Stampedcrs ended a 23-year drought by winning the Grey Cup.

The NHL record of 26 un- Katen games at home, set by iontrcal Canadiens in 1943 and 944 seasons, was never seri- usly threatened but tire way he Hawks manhandled most of heir NHL visitors this year led many to believe the mark could )e in jeopardy.

The h i g h -s c o r i n g Bruins granted his wishes early, Mike Walton triggering the explosion at the mark. Before it ended at Johnny Bucyk, Phil Esposito and John Me- Kenzie had hastened Hawk goal- tender Gary Smilhls departure. Smith was replaced by Tony Esposito at the start of the sec- ond period, but the damage had already been done and only de- fenceman Jerry Korab's goal at of the second saved the Hawks from a whitewash, something no team has been able to do in 126 regular season DETROIT games with Chicago.

Garry Unger supplied the scoring punch thst notched St. Louis' first win on Toronto ice since the 1967 expansion and goaltender Jacques Caron, play- ing his first NHL game for St. Louis, kept the Toronto shooters in check. WINGS STRIKE EARLY Detroit, paced by Mickey Redmond's two goals, struck for three early goals, saw the Football League champion- ship game. And going out to pasture were a number of well-known professionals such as Gordie Howe, Jean Beliveau, Glenn Hall and Ron Stewart. Lai by all-stars Phil Espos- ito at centre and Bobby Orr on defence, the Bruins made a shambles cf the record book en Iheir way to winning the NHL East Division champion- ship for the first time since 194041. Among their records were Esposito's 76 goals and 76 as- sists and Orr's 37 goals and 102 assists. But one of the biggest sur- prises of the year came when the Bruins met the Canadiens in the quarter-final playoffs and lost in seven games, Waning most of their frustra- tions on Ken Dryden, the rookie netminder for Mont- real. The Canadiens on to win their 13th Stanley Cup in 28 seasons. Subsequently vet- eran centre and team captain Beh'vcau announced he was retiring after 18 NHL seasons.

Women were again out- standing in the amateur field with track and field stars Debbie Brill and Debbie Van Kickebclt and swimmers Don- na-Marie Gurr and Leslie Ciiff leading the Canadian contin- gent at the Pr.n-Amcricin in Colombia. The girls won, or helped win, all but two of 19 gold medals, the most gold Canada has ever collected in the Pan- Am contests. It was a good year, as well, for Canadian amateur golfers, with Gary Cowan of Kitch- ener, Out., winning the U.S. amateur championship and Jocclync Bourassa of Shawini- gan, Que., the Canadian ar.d New7 Zealand women's titles SET WORLD RECORD Also reaping rich rewards was harness horse driver Ilcrve F i 1 i o n whose stan. dardbred stable at Lachute, Quo., helped him beat the world record of career wins hsld by Billy Haughton of the U.S. The earned by horses Filion drove in 1971 was also a single season record.

Ferguson Jenkins of Chatham, Ont., posting a 21-13 won-lost record for Chicago Cubs, became the first Cana- dian to win the Cy Young Award a.s the National League's outstanding pitcher. Meanwhile, quarterback Den Jonas from Swanton. Pa., won recognition as the CFL's outstanding player, winning the league scoring champion- ship and leading Winnipeg Blue Bombers to the playoffs for the first time in five years. But it was Toronto, the club that traded .Jonas away to Winnipeg, that ir.ade it to the Grey Cup along with the Stainpcders, although Argos had their share of last-minute disappointments as well. Playing on rain-soaked arti ficial turf in Vancouver, Argos slipped, slid and fum bled their way to a 14-11 loss to the- Staimpeders. But coach Leo Caliill, after seeing his claim that "il never rains on the Argonauts' washed down the storm sew ers, proclaimed his team was good enough to come back next ytar.
