By GLENN COLE Canadian Press Staff Writer Chicago Black Hawks could have been in a first-place tie with Philadelphia Flyers in the National Hockey League's West Division today but coach Billy Reay's club blew a game they should not have Sunday night. The Black Hawks defeated the Flyers 3-1 Saturday night to move to within two points of the lead but Reay said they "just couldn't stand prosperity." The Black Hawks dropped a 4-2 decision to Pittsburgh Pen- guins in Chicago after learning that the Flyers had lost 3-2 in New York against the Rangers. In otter Sunday games, Montreal Canadiens edged St. Louis Blues 3-2, Detroit Red Wings downed New York Islanders 5-3, Buffalo Sabres defeated Boston Bruins 3-2 and Toronto Maple Leafs and Los Angeles Kings tied 3-3. Montreal and the Kings tied 4-4 Saturday, Vancouver Ca- nucks edged Toronto 4-3, Boston defeated Pittsburgh Penguins 6-2, Detroit snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 5-3 win over the Blues, and Atlanta Flames beat Minnesota North Stars 5-3. Ab DeMarco scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season to lead the Penguins. "Still I can't said Reay "After all, that's only our first loss in 12 games. But it's disturbing when you're at home and facing a seventh- place club." New York brought its lifetime record against Philadelphia to 12 wins, one loss and three ties. The Flyers grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first penod but the Rangers scored three times in the second, two of the goals coming on power plays. Rod Gilbert's goal at was the winner. Henri Richard's 12th goal of the season with remaining in the second penod gave Montreal its win over St. Louis. Canadiens' coach Scotty Bowman used only nine forwards most of the evening, explaining that "all the games are so important now that it's hard to take a chance." Rene Robert's 18th goal of the season at of the second period enabled Buffalo to snap Boston's nine-game unbeaten streak. Goalie Dave Dryden, after missing four games with a back ailment, was sharp as he turned back 33 Boston shots.

National Football League's meeting could be interesting MIAMI BEACH (AP) If you believe the National Football League's own "fact its annual meeting starting Monday will have all the potential drama of a stifled yawn. If you believe just about anybody else, it's going to be more like the throwing down of a one which the NFL players and the World Football League will no doubt pick op. The NFL says its week of meetings involving commissioner Pete Rozelle, 26 dub presidents and other league and team officials will cover "constitutional amendments, discussion of playing rules, 1975 Super Bowl site, and tbe status of expansion planning." What tbe official agenda doesn't mention is tbe very real threat of a players' strike, the equally real threat of another money this one with the WFL, and some less harrowing but still important issues such as the effects of the television blackout-tan and the energy Contract negotiations between tbe NFL PLayers' Association and the owners' Management Council won't even begin until March 16, abort a week after the players bold own mediums in Chicago. Bat tbe large nuiribei of major issues and the fact the owners and players appear opposed on some of them suggest a strike is a likely possibility. The big issues will probably include alteration of the standard contract to give players more of a voice in which teams they can play for and tbe elimination of the so- called "Rozelle rule" in which a team which signs a free agent must satisfactorily compensate the player's former NFL team. Rozelle may be a target in another area, too. The NFLPA is said to be aiming to cut down his authority in such areas as the suspension of players for alleged misconduct. And they will probably demand NFL playing fields be natural grass. The players say artificial turf causes more and greater injuries. The owners are expected to strongly oppose demands such as these. It's a good bet that, although they may not talk about it publicly, the owners will have a spirited debate over how to handle OK infant league. In 1960, the new American Football League, armed with a healthy television contract, successfully challenged the NFL, signing many of the older league's first-round draft picks. That started an incredible money war which, in one year, raised the average NFL players' salary from about to roughly The war ended in a merger seven years later and the salary boom leveled off. Of the four major pro team sports, football is still No. 4 in average salary. Basketball is the runaway leader with the average somewhere in the neighborhood of Now along conies tbe WFL. It, too, has a television contract, and it, too, is signing players left the NFL has had better success this time, said to have already signed at least 14 of its 26 first-round picks. But the threat of league- jumping is still there. A few established NFL pros, like quarterbacK Virgil Carter and safety Richmond Flowers, have already announced they're WFL-botmd, and a number of other notables are indicating they're not far from following suit. The WFL, which has already held two drafts totalling 36 rounds, will hold a third one shortly after the NFL owners and players conclude their meetings. That draft will involve NFL players, and not only those who are on the verge of becoming free agents. The pro and con arguments over what some critics have called the boring predictability of the game and the excessive incursion of tbe field goal will be talked only informally.
