Cashman scores twice for new coach Wings move past Buffalo Sabres By RON SUPLOW Canadian Press Staff Writer . Boston Bruins made their first start under new coach Bep Guidolin Wednesday night and showed signs of snapping the slump that has tumbled them to third from first in the National Hockey League's Eastern Division. But most of the credit for the 3-2 victory over the North Stars at Minnesota should go to the Stanley Cup champions' top line of Phil Esposito, Wayne Cash-man and Johnny Bucyk. Cashman, the Bruins boisterous winger, scored twice to raise his season output to 24 and Esposito, who figured in all Boston goals, tallied his 35th to give the Bruins a 3-1 cushion early in the final period. Bucyk assisted on botli of Cashman's markers. But the win did little for the Bruins' bid to overhaul the front-running Canadiens as the Habs humbled Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2 at Montreal. At New York, the Rangers kept four points behind Montreal by hammering the cross-town Islanders 0-0 to leave Boston nine points out of secoond. WINGS MOVE UP In three games. Western Division leading Chicago Black Hawks nipped visiting Buffalo Sabres 2-1 to allow Detroit Red Wrings to move into fourth in the east with a 5-3 cooling of the Flames in Atlanta. The Sabres will have a chance to regain fourth place tonight when they entertain California and Minnesota travels to St. Louis to meet the Blues. Toronto Maple Leafs beat California Golden Seals 5-3 and Los Angeles Kings nipped Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 on the West Coast to move into sixth place in the west. At Minnesota, pepperpot Dennis Hextall scored the first goal of the game for the North Stars and picked up two major penalties for tangling with Esposito in the first period and Bruin de-fenceman Carol Vadnais in the second. Guidolin said after he accepted the Bruins coaching reins when Tom Johnson was moved upstairs Monday that "you have to hurt your bodies to win in this game" and apparently his charges were ready. He has also promised the Bruins will work hard after they managed 15 of a possible 24 points since they fell from first place. Dean Prentice was the other Minnesota marksman with his 20th goal of the campaign marking the 10th time in his NHL career he has scored 20 or more goals in a season. At Montreal, the Canadiens had a 4-0 bulge before the contest was seven minutes old resulting in an early departure for Penguin goalie Jim Rutherford. Cam Newton played spectacularly in the Penguin nets for the rest of the game. Henri Richard, Frank Mahov-lich, Guy Lafleur, Claude La-rose, and Jacques Laperriere scored for the winners and Al McDonough, with his 26th of the season, and Darryl Edestrand were the Penguin triggermen. At New York, Walt Tkaczuk scored twice and assisted on another to lead the Ranger rout as the Blueshirts extended their unbeaten skein to 14 and picked up their second shutout in a row and fourth of the season for goalie Ed Giacomin who blocked 25 shots. At Atlanta, Mickey Redmond's 37th goal of the year choked a Flames rally. Nick Libert, Bill Collins, Red Berenson and Marcel Dicmne were the other Detroit goal-getters while Ernie Hicke tallied twice for the losers. At Chicago, the Hawks moved 11 points ahead of the second-place Flyers when Jim Pappin and Dennis Hull scored on long drives 42 seconds apart in the third period. Jim Schoenfeld, who picked up stitches in the first period when he crashed through the protective glass, beat Tony Esposito with 32 seconds left. At Los Angeles, Ralph Backstrom's 20th goal of the year was the winner as the shot deflected past Flyer goalie Bob Taylor off Philadelphia defender Dave Schultz. Ross Lonsborry gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead on a breakaway SULLY SAYS but Butch Goring tied it on a second-period power play. The Kings' first win in nine games came in a penalty-studded affair in which four fights broke out and referee Art Skov doled out 62 minutes in sentences. Darryl Sittler got the winner for the Leafs at Toronto as Seals goalie Gilles Meloche knocked the puck into his own goal. Ron Ellis scored on an empty net with a minute remaining. Meloche had to contend with a 54-shot ban-age in the free-skating contest, including 29 drives in the final period when the Leafs scored four goals. -By Pat Sullivan J)ID THE DEATH KNELL ring for the Lethbridge Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner last Saturday? That, at the moment, is the $64 question. Declining attendance in what was once generally recognized as the finest dinner of. its kind in Canada has been the rule rather than the exception during the past few years. Saturday's ticket sales, for example, were below the 300 mark. Problems have been plentiful. Costs have risen and the job of obtaining suitable head table talent - sports figures who sell tickets - has become increasingly difficult. Last year, after the bills were paid, the Kinsmen realized a meagre profit of roughly $200 - money that was plowed back into community work. This year, unfortunately, the club will experience a financial bath, something no service club can afford. It is not what you could call an ideal situation. The grumblings were plentiful Saturday night, and I suppose if I had spent $20 for a ticket I may have had a few myself. For one reason or another, this year's head table did not measure up to the high standards it had set during previous dinners, organization and promotion was lacking and I felt a casino had no business being part of a sportsman's dinner, although I am fully aware that it was implemented as part of the package in an effort to bolster the sagging ticket receipts. ? ? ? The decision facing the Kinsmen now, of course, is whether they should continue with the dinner or direct their attention to other endeavors in their efforts to raise money for their extremely worthwhile community projects. As one Kinsman put it: "A lot of work goes into staging these dinners, and it would be absolutely foolish to maintain them if we cannot realize a decent profit." Personally, I feel the dinner can be restored to its previous level, talent-wise and financial-wise, if some changes are made. I'm hopeful the Kinsmen will see fit to give it another whirl. It has been an excellent dinner and a venture that has, in more ways than one, put Lethbridge and southern Alberta on the map. Kinsmen, past and present, have worked long and hard to establish their dinner, raising thousands of dollars in the process in their continued efforts to make Lethbridge a better place in which to live. No one should argue the point that the club faces a major decision. Times have changed and possibly, like a lot of good things, it may have to come to an end. I sincerely hope not, however. Don't let it die, gentlemen. The Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner is worth saving. It is, as far as I am concerned and I imagine I speak for many others, unique in the sporting circles of the sunny south.
