Jets big line brought to a standstill, Crusaders chalk up narrow triumph Canadiens get help from Penguins Flyers tied up Rangers' Gilbert By THE CANADIAN PRESS Before Philadelphia Flyers went to New York Wednesday night, they took note of their scouting report which showed Rod Gilbert on a hot scoring streak for the Rangers. Flyers' coach Fred Shero decided that Gilbert, who had nine goals and'13 assists in his last 10 games, would require special attention, and assign- ed Ross Lonsberry to check Gilbert. Lonsberry was so effective that he found time to score once himself while holding Gilbert to only two shots on goal ahd no points. The result was a 4-3 Phila- delphia victory, their third straight over the Rangers this season, in the first of a home- and-home series that con- Summaries CALIFORNIA 5 WASHINGTON 1 First Period: 1.

In other NHL games Wednesday, Montreal Canadiens beat Detroit Red Wings 8-5, Pittsburgh Penguins: defeated Los Angeles Kings 3-2, Chicago Black Hawks defeated Min- nesota North Stars 2-1, California Seals beat Washington Capitals 5-1 and Boston Bruins tied Atlanta Flames 3-3. Besides the work of Lon- sberry, Shero also had praise for Bill Clement who scored an unassisted goal when he broke past the Rangers defence and beat goalie Ed Giacomin. Clement, who had a poor season last year, almost didn't make the. team this season. "Right now, he's playing so well I can't sit him said Shero. "He fills in at left wing, centre, right wing, kills penalties, and now he has 15 goals." The Flyers' win pulled them 11 points ahead of the second- place Rangers in the Patrick Division. In the Norris Division, Mon- treal pulled four points clear of Los Angeles for the first time this season. Steve Shutt's second goal of the game and 20th of the season broke a 5-5 tie and led the Canadiens to victory at Montreal. Shutt said after the game that it was no coincidence that he scored both his goals on backhand shots. "I've been practising those he said. "I went down the ice in practice one day and faked the forehand and then backhanded it in. I said to myself 'holy cow, if I can do it once I can do it again'." At Bloomington, Minn., Jim Pappin scored on a pass from Darcy Rota early in the third period to give the Hawks the win over the North Stars. The victory pulled Chicago to within one point of leading Vancouver in the Smythe Division, giving the Hawks a chance to overtake the Canucks when they visit Van- couver on Friday. The Bruins gained the tie at Atlanta on goals by Bobby Orr and Carol Vadnais in a 30-sec- ond span midway in the final period. Chuck Arnason scored two of Pittsburgh's three second- period goals to lead the Penguins over the Kings who had taken a 2-0 first-period lead. Tommy Williams opened the scoring for Los Angeles and set up the second goal by Mike Murphy. Arnason's second goal, his 20th of the season, equalled his goal production last year when he split the season with Atlanta and Pittsburgh. John Stewart and Dave Gardner each scored twice to lead the Seals against Washington. DICK ALLEN Dick Allen won't play in Atlanta ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Braves said Wednesday they are placing controversial slugger Dick Allen on the voluntary retirement list because Allen says he doesn't want to play in Atlanta. Eddie Robinson, general manager of the National League baseball team, said he received a letter from Allen, who led the American League with 33 homers last year while playing with Chicago White Sox, and he said he did not want to play for the Braves. Allen will not be allowed to play for any other team be- cause his contract, still belongs to the Braves: He was traded to Atlanta and still has a year left on a three year contract. However, a spokesman for the Braves said: "He has no option to do anything until the Braves do something with his contract." Robinson earlier had asked commissioner Bowie Kuhn to investigate reports that Phila- delphia Phillies were inter- ferring with Atlanta's rights to Allen. Philadelphia players, led by second baseman Dave Cash and third baseman Mike Schmidt, were reported to have headed a campaign to try to convince Allen to play with Philadelphia. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Cleveland Crusaders' coach Jack Vivian told his players that if they went out and stopped, the Bobby Hull line they'd come up with a victory. It worked. The Crusaders stopped the most productive line in the World Hockey Association and defeated Winnipeg Jets 3-2 Wednesday night. Vivian, as well as Hull, who is the Jets' player-coach, had high praise for Cleveland centre Gerry Pinder and wingers Grant Erickson and Skip Krake. "They won the game for Vivian said. "They kept him (Hull) off the boards. Krake did a great job on Hull, Erickson handled (Anders) Hedberg and Pinder was a lot more effective at centre than as a winger." Hull, along with Hedberg and Ulf Niisson have scored 84 goals and 193 points. In other WHA games Wednesday, Houston Aeros beat Toronto Toros 5-2, Minnesota Fighting Saints defeated Edmonton Oilers 4-2, Phoenix Roadrunners whipped San Diego Mariners 9-2 and Vancouver Blazers beat Chicago Cougars 4-2. Despite Hull's inability to Dave Jackson sinks Elks Three goals by Dave Jackson paced the Lethbridge Juvenile Warriors to a 5-3 triumph over the Lethbridge Midget Elks in Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League action Wednesday night. Ken Bond and Cam MacLennan had the other goals for the Warriors, who held a 4-2 lead after periods following a scoreless opening frame. Jerry- Lypka, Earl Ingar- field Jr., arid George Szacklay scored for the Midget Elks. The Warriors took eight of 11 minor penalties and the game's only misconduct. Celtics' Schmeltz hit by indictment TRENTON, N.J. (AP) Robert Schmertz, owner of Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association, and another man were indicted by a New Jersey grand jury Wednesday on bribery charges: The indictment stems from an alleged attempt to ob- tain approval for a multi million dollar senior citizens project. Schmertz of Lakewood, N.J., president of Leisure Technology Corp., was indicted along with Donald Safran, a Lakewood insurance consultant who now.lives in Florida. In New York, NBA commissioner Walter Kennedy said in a statement: "We have been informed of the charges made against Mr. Schmertz and will, of course, closely observe the proceedings against him. If and when any action by the NBA seems to rne to be appropriate, I will take such ac- tion after consultation with the board of governors." Schmertz and Safran were charged with paying .to Ocean County freeholder Joseph S. Portash between July 1, 1971, and July 12, 1972. The indictment said Por- tash received an initial payment and was io receive in continuing annual payments. Portash was not indicted and is expected to be a key state witness. The indictment also named as a defendant Leisure Technology Corp., which faces a fine if convicted. Schmertz and Safran are subject to maximum terms of 15 years each and fines of each if convicted. The indictment charged that under the alleged scheme, Portash, who also is mayor of Manchester Township and a member of the local utilities authority, agreed to seek approval from the township and Ocean County officials to construct the senior citizens project. score, Vivian was still full of praise for the Winnipeg player-coach. "What a hockey said Vivian. "I don't know how he coaches and plays at the same time. What a show he puts on." "They sent Pinder, Krake and Erickson out there specifically to check us all night and it Hull said. "This is the ninth day of a 10-day road trip, and we might have been tired. But those guys did a good clean job of checking us. Three year pact "When you send three guys out to concentrate on checking it's hard to beat them. It's pretty tough when three guys are following you around all night." The famous Jets' scoring line was limited to nine of the 30 shots on goal taken by Winnipeg. Frank Hughes broke a per- sonal eight-game scoring drought by scoring a third-pe- riod goal in the Aeros' win over the Toros. "That's the longest slump I think I've Hughes said. "It wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't been getting the chances, but I have been getting them. I guess maybe I started too fast this season." Andre Hinse, Mark Howe and Murray Hall scored in the first period for the Aeros and third period goals by Don Larway and Hughes gave Houston a 5-0 lead before the Toros scored. "We were strong in those first two periods, though we did get a little sloppy in the third said coach Bill Dineen of the Aeros who have won their last four games. "We had four different linescore and you can't ask for more than.that." At Vancouver, Danny Law- son's goal early fh the third period broke a 2-2 tie against the' Cougars and the Blazers easily went on to the victory in a contest that saw the Chicago club outshot 35-16. Phoenix outshot San Diego 40-26 with Rob Ftorek and Dennis Sobchuk collecting two goals each in the Roadrunners' romp. lOPENTONIGHTl EDMONTON (CP) Larry Highbaugh, one of the fastest men in Canadian football, has signed a three year contract with Edmonton Eskimos of the Western Football Conference.
