The former Boston College star scored twice as the Whalers tripped the Toros 5-3 in Boston to break a tie between the two clubs for top spot in the division. Wednesday's goals gave the left-winger five in four games since the Whalers called him up from Jacksonville Barons of the American Hockey League. The win put New England in the driver's seat in the first-' place fight. They lead the Toros by two points but have three more games to play than Toronto. Toronto had grabbed a share of first place with a 2-0 win over the Whalers Sunday, night in Toronto. Tonight the Toros have to deal with Winnipeg Jets at Ottawa while the Whalers visit New Jersey Knights. Cunniff broke a 2-2 tie with a 25-shot off a rebound late in the second period, then scored New England's fifth goal in the third period. Pat Hickey scored twice for the Toros. In Wednesday's other game, Minnesota Fighting Saints edged Los Angeles Sharks 5-4. Saints 5 Sharks 4 The Saints won their fifth in a row and strengthened their hold on second place in the WHA West Division, opening six-point lead over the third- place Jets. Mike Walton picked up two assists for the Saints and moved past Toronto's Wayne Carleton into second place in the scoring race. He has 82 points and Carleton 81. Gordie Howe, the leader, has scored 84 points for Houston Aeros. "It doesn't matter how old he said Walton of Howe. "I know he is playing better than he did with Detroit a few years back when his wrist was bothering him." "I don't know if he can keep up the pace or not, but I think the next week will tell. We've got four games in five days and it would be nice to string together some .points." Wayne Connelly scored twice for the Saints but it was Ted Hampson who scored the winner on a third-period play engineered by Walton and Bob MacMillan. Besides the Winnipeg- Toronto and New England- New Jersey games, tonight's schedule has Cleveland Crusaders visiting Minnesota, Vancouver at Quebec Nordiques and Houston at Chicago Cougars.

Also in the action are Barry Wilkins (4) and Chris Oddleifson (11) of the Canucks. Esposito continues to have hot hand Hawks reach first place perch By NEIL CAMPBELL Canadian Press Staff Writer After spending more than two months chasing Philadelphia Flyers, Chicago Black Hawks have a piece of first place again in the National Hockey League West Division. Helped by a routinely brilliant performance by goalie Tony Esposito, the Hawks stopped Minnesota North Stars 3-1 to move into a first-place tie with the Flyers. Esposito spotted the Stars a goal by Bill Goldsworthy in the second minute of the game, then shut them out for the rest of the night. He finished with 28 saves. It was a return to form for Esposito, who allowed four Pittsburgh goals in a loss Sun- day night when a win would have put the Hawks into a first place tie. IN HOT PURSUIT The February pursuit of the Flyers had been a hot one for the Hawks until Sunday. They had 10 wins and a tie to show for the 11 starts in the month before losing that game.

Once Esposito had Wednes- day's game under control, Dennis Hull took care of the offence. He set up a first-period goal by Lynn Powis to tie the game, scored himself in the first period to put Chicago in front and then scored an insurance goal, his 25th of the year, in the third period. In Wednesday's other games, New York Rangers downed Vancouver Canucks 4- 2, Pittsburgh Penguins beat Los Angeles Kings 4-1 and California Golden Seals tied St. Louis Blues 2-2. Vancouver coach Phil Malo- ney was with two of his players, Richard Lemieux and Bobby Lalonde, and later with referee Andy Van Hellemond. Lemieux and Lalonde weren't dressed for the game because they failed to show up for a light workout earlier in the day. Maloney called it "a disciplinary action." Maloney, who said he Wrestlers in Cardston The best high school wrestlers in Alberta will be competing in the third annual provincial high school wrestling championships in Cardston this weekend. The Cardston High School will host the two-day championships which get underway Friday and conclude Saturday. Wrestling teams from such places as Bonneville. Camrose, Calgary. Medicine Hat. Delia and Red Water will visit Cardston for the weekend affair. Some 15 weight-class titles are up for grabs in the championship finals which sees matches slated from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and matches set from 10 a.m. to 12 o'clock noon and p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. recommended Van Hellemond to the NHL when he saw him in an amateur game a few years ago, questioned his calls and "also questioned his ancestry" after some of his calls Wednesday. The Canucks claimed that two Ranger goals were scored with New York players illegally parked in the crease. Vancouver goalie Gary Smith squawked so loudly about one of them he was given a misconduct. Jean Ratelle scored the first two Ranger goals. The Penguins did all of their scoring in a 14-minute stretch during the second period. CHICAGO 3, MINNESOTA 1 First period 1.
