Flames' playoff hopes flicker Rangers almost suffered a pair By IAN AtacLAJNB Canadian Press Staff Writer Wednesday's California earthquake almost rocked New York Rangers out of their vital hold on second place in the National Hockey League East Division race. The Rangers, in Los Angeles to meet the Kings, were awakened by the jolt at 6:45 a.m., but:it wasn't until 19:50 of the third period at night they were able to savor a 4-3 victory that held their two-point lead over the surging Boston Bruins. The Bruins kept pace with an easy 6-2 victory over California Golden Seals at Oakland. Both clubs, however, failed to make any ground on Montreal Cana-diens who saddled West Division-leading Chicago Black Hawks with a 4-2 loss.

The Canadiens, who maintained their six-point lead over the Rangers, visit Detroit Red Wings tonight while Pittsburgh Penguins entertain New York Islanders and Vancouver Canucks are at Buffalo Sabres. Ranger coach and general manager, Emile Francis, said "I dived for the floor" when he awoke to find the chandelier above his head swaying. And the Kings, striving for a playoff spot, almost had him diving for the exit through most of the game as they opened 1-0, 2-1 and 3-1 leads before the Rangers rallied. Jerry Butler's first NHL goal early in the final period and Jean Rate-lie's 31st of the season with 10 seconds left in the game kept New York's three-year mastery of the Kings intact. The streak includes 15 wins and four ties in 19 meetings between the two clubs dating to Jan. 18, 1970. The Bruins were riding a 6-0 lead, en route to their ninth victory in 10 games under new coach Bep Guidolin, before California newcomer Stan Weir, broke rookie goaltender Ross Brooks' bid for a shutout at 18:19 of the second period.

The six-team AMBL is the only Canadian league to join the congress, which is an association of amateurs and semi-professional teams in the United States, he said. Association with the congress provides the Alberta league an opportunity to compete against 31.' other United States clubs in the congress championships Aug. 10 at Wichita, Kan., Parker said. The top teams of the league's north and south divisions would play a best-of-seven series for the honor.

Teams in the AMBL are Calgary Jimmies, Calgary Giants, Lethbridge Lakers, Red Deer Elks, Edmonton Tigers and Edmonton Blue Willows.
