"Sometimes you play differ- ent combinations against cer- tain teams. I don't broadcast what I'm thinking or what I'm doing." The happy Irvine said he hoped he wouldn't encounter an- other slump like his last 20 games.

Separate meetings were held Wednesday for the Eastern and Western conferences. All meetings during the week are held behind closed doors with the first news conference scheduled for this afternoon. OPEN FOR BIDS CFL commissioner Jake Gau- daur said the executive will dis- cuss "franchise bids, if there are today. The 1971 schedule "has already been ra- tified" and may be released, Gaudaur said, "but it depends on how the clubs feel." He told reporters the mem- bers would probably prefer a city "in an area without a present CFL franchise." London, Ont., and Halifax have expressed interest in fran- chises and the league has also received feelers from groups in Detroit and San Antonio, Tex. Calgary Stampeders general manager Rogers Lehew denied all over the ice. I wasn't play ing hockey." Irvine's second goal of the night, and his 12th of the sea- son, came in the first minute of the final period, just before the North Stars tried a comeback. Bill Goldsworthy, Danny Grant rod Charlie Bums scored on netminder Gilles Villemure. A second goal by Goldsworthy that could have tied the game was disallowed by referee Bryan Lewis who ruled the Min- nesota player kicked the puck into the net The win pulled the Rangers back within seven points of the leading Boston Bruins in tire East Division. The Leafs, backed by the out- standing goal-tending of Bernie Parent, rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the third period to edge the Hawks in Chicago.

Richard, who retired after the 1959-60 season, and Stan Fis- cWer, a New York City hockey writer, have combined to produce: The Flying French- men, Hockey's Greatest Dy- nasty. The 340-page book is a two-art history of Montreal Canadiens. It is published by Prentice-Hall of Canada Ltd., and sells for Part one of UK His- tory and Critique of the Cana written by Fischler and traces the history of the Montreal club from its inception in 1909 to the current crop of layers. Richard traces his career in he second half and gives his eelings on big league hockey cxJay. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE Fischler says in his introduc- tion there are those who take exception to Richard's low opin- on of contemporary big league hockey. But Fischler feels that critics should address them- selves to Richard's points rather than question his mo- ives. Richard, who scored 544 goals n 978 regular season games, says that when he played foi the Canadiens in the 1940s ant 1950s every player used to reach bis peak during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Tliis, he says, is no longer true. He refers to the Stanley Cup final scries in 1968 and 1969 as "joke" because the West Divi- sion champion St. Louis Blues were not ready to play the Can- adiens, the East Division win- ONLY '67 CHEV.
