MONTREAL (CP) - New York Rangers remain hot on the heels of first place Montreal Candiens in the National Hockey League's East Division race today with goaltenders Gilles Villemure and Ed Gia-comin playing a big role in keeping the New Yorkers close. After centre Phil Esposito scored for the Bruins at 5:01 of the second period during a 7-3 New York victory at Boston Feb. 3, Villemure and Giacomin blanked their opponents for 255 minutes and seconds - the longest stretch by any team since 1948-49 when the late Bill Durnan of Montreal shut out his opponents for 309 minutes, 21 seconds. Durnan had four consecutive shutouts and the Rangers pair had three shutouts. Following the game against Boston in which Giacomin was the goalie, Villemure blanked Atlanta Flames 6-0 Feb. 4. Giacomin shutout New York Islanders 6-0 last Wednesday and Villemure duplicated that feat last Saturday. GIACOMIN CONTINUES Giacomin kept the sequence going for another 40 minutes and 54 seconds until Frank Ma-hovlich of the Canadiens scored at the 54 second mark of the third period during Sunday's 2-2 tie in New York. The last team to record three consecutive shutouts was Minnesota North Stars in 1967-68 when goaltender Cesare Ma-niago blanked Los Angeles Kings twice and California Golden Seals once. The length of that shutout sequence was 188 minutes, 38 seconds. The Giacomin Villemure shutouts lowered their combined goals against average to 2.36 from 2.45 and raised their shutout total to a league leading seven. Raneers netminders are second to the Canadiens, with Montreal's loading average at 2.23 goals against. The league's leading scorer is Esposito with .86 points. His nearest rival, centre Stan Mi-kita of Chicago Black Hawks with 77 points, has been forced out of the lineup with a broken bone in his foot. Centre Bobby Clarke of Philadelphia is in third place with 75 points. Meanwhile John Bucyk, Boston Bruins veteran left winger who led the' National Hockey League in accuracy two seasons ago, was the leader again in the first half of this season and his eye has improved. Statistics released by the NHL Monday show that among players with 15 or more goals, the 37-year-old Bucyk scored al- most once in every four shots on opposition nets-19 goals on 79 shots for 24 per cent accuracy. When Bucyk led the league in 1970-71, he had 51 goals on 225 shots, a percentage of 22.6. The annual mid-season review shows that 11 players had a scoring accuracy of 20 per cent or better, the largest number of players to have an average of a goal every five shots in any season. Second to Bucyk was Gerry Meehan of Buffalo Sabres with 23 goals on 96 shots-23.9 per cent. Bucyk and several others of these sharpshooters will be testing their second-half season eyes tonight in three NHL contests, as the Bruins play host to Vancouver Canucks; the Kings visit St. Louis Blues; and New York Islanders travel to Philadelphia against the Flyers. Davies wins three firsts Sharon Davies came up with an outstanding performance and featured in three first place finishes in the University of Lethbridge Badminton Tournament staged Sunday.
