[ Canucks belt Red Wings Esposito cracks 60-goal mark By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Phil Esposito and Bobby On-led a Boston assault on the National Hockey League record book Thursday night as the awesome Bruins stomped Los Angeles Kings 7-2. In another game, Vancouver Canucks defeated Detroit Red Wings 7-3. In the only game scheduled tonight, Philadelphia Flyers visit New York Rangers. Esposito, who equalled Bobby Hull's single-season goal scoring record of 58 the previous night, scored twice and added an assist to shatter three NHL season marks while Orr scored once and assisted on three others to set up three more one-season highs. Esposito's two goals also shattered the previous high of 59 for both regular season and playoff games set by centre Jean Beli-veau of Montreal Canadiens. Beliveau's record was set during the 1955-56 season while Hull's mark was established by the Chicago Black Hawk winger in 1968-69, the same year Esposito set the single-season points record of 126 he surpassed Thursday night. NOW HAS 128 POINTS The three points picked up by the rangy 29-year-old centre from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., gave him 128 with 11 games still to play in the 78-game schedule. "I'm glad it's over," said Esposito. "With 11 games left after this one, I knew that sooner or later I'd get it. . . . "I'm just glad the pressure's off," he added, referring to Hull's goal-scoring record. He admitted the Kings have been an easy mark this season. "I like playing here," he said, noting that he has 11 goals and eight assists in five games against Los Angeles in the current campaign. Esposito said he had no idea how many goals he could score in the remaining games, but he would be satisfied with 65. He's far off the pro record of 77 set by Alain Caron of Dolbeau, Que., in 1963-64 with St. Louis of the Central Hockey League. ORR PADS MARK Orr, 22, from Parry Sound, Ont., who broke his own goal-scoring high for defencemen Wednesday night with his 34th of the year, padded that mark while establishing a single-season high for assists (88) and points for a defenceman (123). The assists mark, which betters by one the high he set last year en route to the scoring title with 120 points, would also be listed as a high for defencemen in the record book. And the Bruins, who already boast numerous single - season records as a team including the most 20-goal scorers (nine), wins (50), goals scored (339), and points (107), have two other shooters threatening to break the 100-point barrier. Left winger Johnny Bucyk, leading candidate for the Lady Byng Trophy as the player best combining ability and sportsmanship, has 98 while Esposito's linemate, Ken Hodge, has 95 points.

When Esposito and Orr scored 100 points, it was the first time in NHL history two players on the same team had reached the century mark the same season. The Kings held a brief 1-0 lead on Bob Pulford's first-period goal before being snowed under by the Boston onslaught. While the Bruins were winning their 50th of the season to take a 12-point lead over New York in the East Division race, Los Angeles suffered its 35th setback and remained a distant sixth in the West. The Vancouver victory, sparked by three unanswered goals in the first period, enabled the East Division tailenders to close within three points of Detroit Ted Taylor, with the first of his two goals, Danny Johnson and Mike Corrigan counted in the first period during a 16-shot barrage on Detroit's rookie goaltender, Jim Rutherford. The Canucks opened a 5-2 lead by the end of the middle period against a drab Detroit offence whose only bright spot was the performance of rookie Tom Webster. His two goals igave him 26 for the season. Lays off NHL owners Eagleson knocks parents HAMILTON (CP) - Alan Eagleson, executive-director of the National Hockey League Players' Association, stayed clear of rapping NHL owners Thursday night but knocked parents who press their youngsters into highly-organized hockey at an early age. He told the 49th annual Mc-Master University athletic banquet he was disgusted with parents of peewee-aged hockey players who invade the dressing room after a game and berate their sons, ignoring the coach. He added that he coaches a peewee team. "And the tragic thing is the parents sitting in the stands screaming 'Get him! Kill him' at their sons during a game. If this is the philosophy we are developing then we should get someone else to take over" Eagleson singled out the annual Quebec peewee hockey tournament, "regarded as the Stanley Cup of peewee hockey" as a prime example "of the cancer in minor hockey." SCOUT 10-YEAR-OLDS The Toronto lawyer said he had seen parents fighting at the tournament and NHL scouts watching 10-year-old players. He said the same scouting of eight-, nine- and 10-year-olds is carried on by Toronto Marlboro juniors. "They see a promising boy and they try to steer him. . . . And the parents push the boys because they want him to play for Marlboros. He said damage caused by situations of this nature was best illustrated by the fact that of 30 or 40 boys who start playing hockey at the peewee level, only one is still in hockey after playing in a juvenile league. "It's push, push, push. When the boy finally gets a chance to Angels object to playing Athletics MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Califor nia Angels objected Thursday to playing their first spring exhibition game against the Oakland Athletcis under a rule allowing a walk after three instead of four balls. At one point, Angels manager Lefty Phillips threatened to keep his club off the field. Oakland eventually won the game 6-1 with the two teams totalling 16 walks. The Athletics' five-run third inning started when Angels rookie Andy Has-sler walked Felipe Alou. Athletics owner Charles O. Finley says he has the permission of baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn, American League president Joe Cronin and the rules committee to use the experiment in all games the Athletics play against other American League teams at their Mesa spring training camp. Dick Walsh, Angels' general manager, said Finley had called him up about three weeks ago and asked if the Angels would play under the three-ball setup. "I told him we would if we received notification from the league and the rules committee that it is a designated spring training experiment," he said. "We didn't hear from either and said we wouldn't play under the rule," he continued. "We tried to get Cronin and couldn't but were put in touch with Finley.

As a director of Hockey Canada, he emphasized the need to place education first and look on hockey as a means to an end, not an end. He was critical of NHL own- ers not supporting university hockey programs and said money now funnelled into amateur hockey through the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association would be better spent on scholarships- .HHHi ANDY CAPP DYCAPP V SHOULD) COME TO THE/vWTCH, PET-I WAS BEAUTIFUL TO WATCH LAST WEEKyS�.Sr COME 'ERE.l I WANT TO 1 ASKXER' SOMETHIN \ IF NOU.'AD NER LIFE T1 LIVE OVER.
