(AP Wirepholo) Hot line doubles pace By THE CANADIAN PRESS A look back to Hie National Hockey League scoring records of a year ago provides a re- minder of why the current bat- tle for the league-scoring lead holds so much interest. After 61 games last season, Boston Bruins had lour players leading the race. Centre Phil Esposito, who wound up the sea- Eon with his second champion- ship, was leading team-mate Hobby Orr by 15 points with wingers Johnny Bucyk and Kea Hodge close behind. This season, however, centre Jeaa Ratelle and New York Rangers linemates Rod Gilbert and Vic Hadfield have moved up to challenge the Bruins. Going into the weekend ac- lion, Ratelle had a one-point edge over Esposito. The Rangers centre has 46 goals and 62 assists and the Bruin 54 and 53. A year ago, Esposito had 52 goals and 65 assists while Orr followed with 29 and 74. Orr Is not far behind this season with 28 goals and 69 assists for third spot.

Hadfield however, missed part of last season with injuries and had played only 48 games up to March 2, 1971. Despite the GAG line's doll- sled production, however, the Rangers are no further ahead in :he standings.
