By THE CANADIAN PRESS Johnny Bucyk, in his 14th sea- son with Boston Bruins, appears determined to improve his sec- ond-place finish in last year's balloting for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy as the Na- tional Hockey League player best combining sportsmanship with ability. The 35-year-old Edmonton na- tive fired his 38th goal this sea- son and the 350th of his career as the Bruins clumped Buffalo Sabres 6-3 in the only game Tuesday night. In tonight's action, Montreal Canadiens meet California Golden Seals at Oakland. New York Rangers play host to Phil- adelphia Flyers, St. Louis Blues tangle with the Penguins at Pittsburgh and Los Angeles Kings visit Minnesota North Stars. Bucyk, who became the 10th NHL player to reach the 350- goal mark, added two assists and his goal touched off a three-goal outburst that locked up the game for Boston. With the 38 goals and 46 as- sists, Bucyk pulled into sole pos- session of fourth place in the NHL's scoring race. His 84 points, together with only four minutes in penalties this season, make Mm a prime candidate for the Lady Byng. The Bruins took a one-goal lead late in the first period when Derek Sanderson con- nected with, his 22nd marker.

A good size crowd was on land at the Lethbridge Arena ast night to watch the two clubs battle through a scoreless 'irst period. Both John Davidson in the Kings' net and Gord Lealke in the Cougars' cage came up with some brilliant saves in the period to keep their re- spective clubs in the game.

Lannie McDonald finally put the Kings back in the ;ame with 10 seconds remain- rag in the period with a pe- culiar goal. The puck came jack to the point where Mc- Donald was situated but seem- ed to be bouncing end over end. With a golf-like shot he flipped the puck to Lealke who watched it ricochet into the net.

ANDY CAPP LeGuilloux'. the leading scorer in the league, once again opened up the scoring as he let a blistering shot go just inside the Kings' blueline to beat Davidson at the 31 second mark. Being one goal behind, the Kings applied the pressure but constantly failed to click. Fi- nally at th e mark Mc- Donald let a wrist shot go from the point towards the Cougars cage. Gary Paskuski, sitting on the door step, stopped the drive before a sprawling-Calgary net minder. In trying to slip th< puck past Lealke, Paskuski flipped it right to Dave George who just banged it into a open net. Davidson was called on to handle 31 Calgary shots while Lealke turned aside 32.
