Hull, Esposito continue assaults Records falling to sharpshooters MONTREAL (CP) National Hockey League records, which a few years ago appeared safer, are falling to league sharpshoot- ers with increasing regularity this season. Phil Esposito, Boston Bruins centre, stands today as the first ilayer to score more than 100 points in two different seasons Left winger Bobby Hull of Chicago Black Hawks has tied former Montreal Canadien great, Maurice (Rocket) Rich- ard, as runner-up to Gordie Howe of Detroit Red Wings in all-time goal-scoring. Hull has also equalled the Rocket's record of 26 regular- season three-goal games. Bobby Orr of Boston, the only defenceman ever to win the scoring title, has moved to within 14 points of his second straight 100-points-plus season. Until two seasons ago, when Esposito won the scoring title with 126 points on 49 goals and 77 assists, no player had cracked the 100-point barrier. That same season Bobby Hull and Howe also passed the 100- point mark. Last season, Orr won the title with 120 points, an amazing feat considering that no defenceman had gained more than 59 points in a season before Orr began his assault on the records. Today Esposito has 101 points, team-mate John Bucyk. Bobby Hull is fifth with 69 points, including 34 goals, sec- ond-high in the league. His car- eer total is 544 goals in 984 games. Richard retired after the 1959 season with the same number of goals in 978 regular- season contests.
