Open playoffs in Edmonton Kings heading If Lethbridge Sugar Kings could change one thing heading into the first round of the Albeila Junior Hockey League playoffs it would be where they play the first two games. Kings, who finished in second place in the six-team league, open Iheia* semi-final series, a best-of-seven affair, on the road against the Edmonton Maple Leafs. Tlie locals were forced to the highways as the friendly confines of the Lethbridge Ai-ena ha-d been booked by an ice show staged by the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club. "It would have been nice to get the playoffs imdei- way at home but then we get a good break next weekend," said Sugar King manager SVd Hall. Sugar Kings will meet the Leafs Saturday and Sunday in Edmonton and then will play the next three games at home starting Friday, Saturday and Sunday if necessary. The semi-finals between Red Deer Rustlers, league pennant wuiners, anri Calgaiy Cougars opens in Red Deer Satm-day with the series alte:-nating home sites. Sugar Kings arc healthy heading into the weekend series openers. According to Hall outside of the usual bumps and bruises the Kings aj-e in top shape for S'atiu'day and Sunday. The locals received added inspiration the last week as .John Davidson and Lannie McDonald picked up a pair of league honors. Davidson, the league's lop north netminder, was voted rookie of the year while McDonald topped the voting in the most valuable player categoiy. Willie tlie Kings are looking for a sweep of the weekend set and possibly wrapping it up at home next weekend HaU was quick to remark "Tlie Leafs won't be any push over. Remember they finished the league strongly." Hall went cn to say "We will be looking for the sweep, sure, but a split would still leave us in good shape hea.ding home." RESIGNS POST TNGLEWOOD, Calif.

Whit-beck chipped in with 10. G. Schuller was the big man Bucyk fires three By THE CANADIAN PRESS Success after years of futility is especially welcome, particularly if your name is Johnny Bucyk and you have tried in vain for a long time to sip champagne from the Stanley Cup. Bucyk, in his 14th season as a Boston Bruin, spent too many years with the club languishing in the National Hockey League doildrmns not to make the most of a good thing. His big-league career reached a lugh point last spring as he skated around Boston Garden, the champonship trophy held high above his head. Earlier this season, when the East Division leaders recognized his contribution with a .$1,000 cheque on the occasion of his 1,000th NHL game, BuQ'k responded with a six-point night. And he hasn't stopped since. TTiursday night the 35-year-old winger fired three goals, bringing his season total to 44, as the Bnrins hammered the lowly California Golden Seals 7-0. FLYERS TIE WINGS In the only other game played, Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Bed Wings played to a 2-2 tie. Another game scheduled for the Montreal Forum between the Canadiens and 'Vancouver Canucks was postponed to a later date when a severe snow storm hit the Quebec metropolis. It was the first time in NHL histoor weather had been responsible for calling off a game, lliree of the four previous postponements followed the deaths of prominent figures. The fourth resulted from fog over the ice in Boston Garden. The Montreal-'Vancouver game was rescheduled for March 9. A Detroit Red Wing game at Vancouver set for March 9 has been moved to March 10. Bucyk, who tied a career high 69 points last season, now has 93 points and appears likely to become the third Bruin to reach the century mark this season. Phil Esposito and defenceman Bobby Orr, have done it for the second time. Esposito is the current points leader with 119, followed by Orr with 109. Edmonton-born Bucyk counted once in each period Thursday night and was assisted on two by Orr, who also scored his 30th goal of the season to open the scoring at 7:13 of the first period.
