The Rangers, second to Boston in the Gast, and the fourth-place Leafs are expected to meet in one East Division semi-final while Boston takes on Montreal Canadiensinthe other. The Canadiens looked in playoff form Sunday, thumping the hometown Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1. In other games, Chicago Black Hawks, who clinched the West Division title Saturday, scrambled to a 4-4 tie with St. Louis Blues, Detroit Red Wings toppled California Golden Seals 8-5 and Buffalo Sabres blanked Minnesota North Stars 5-0. Philadelphia Flyers improved their playoff hopes in the West Saturday, upsetting the Leafs in Toronto to move five points ahead of fifth-place Pittsburgh. In other Saturday games, Chicago defeated Montreal 4-1 to lock up. their division title, Boston scored a 6-3 win over Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings downed Detroit 5-2, St. Louis romped 9-0 over Buffalo and Minnesota and Pittsburgh played a 0-0 tie. "I'm not concerned about first place any more," Giacomin said following a recent Ranger win. "If it comes, that would be just extra nice. "But our main concern is to hold on to second place and at the same time build up momentum to carry us into the playoffs," said the Sudbury-born goalie whose shutout S'unday was a league-leading seventh. The Bruins, with 109 points, lead New York by 10 while the Rangers have a healthy 16-point cushion on Montreal. Toronto is another nine points back in the East Division race. The iron man who played 70 Ranger games each of the two previous seasons has been getting lots of rest with rookie Gilles Villemure sharing the goaltending chores this season Only total collapse would rob them of the Vezina Trophy which goes to the goaltending staff allowing the fewest goals during the season. The addition of VUlemure, and possibly the mask he donned for the first time this season, have removed much of the tension and mental fatigue 31-year-old Giacomin faced in previous years. MacGregor, obtained In mid-season trade with Detroit; gave Giacomin all the offence he needed with his 15th goal of the season and ninth in the last 10 Ranger games. Giacomin helped his own cause by stopping Leafs' Ron Ellis on a breakaway early in the third period. He turned aside 33 shots by a Toronto team whose ranks were depleted through injuries to centres Norm Ullman and Dave Keon and winger Paul Henderson. as the Thunderettes were considered to be their toughest opponents. Minnie Van Dueren the Chinooks' sharpshooting forward was fouled out after 10 minutes of play and the situation looked grim, according to coach Winter. Trailing by five points at half time the Chinooks came to life and quickly pounced on their bewildered opponents. With little more than three minutes remaining the Chinooks built up a five point lead and hung onto it until the buzzer sounded. Leona Voth the tall star centre for the Chinooks paved the way with a 19 point outing. Saturday morning the Chinooks kept things going as they dropped Ottawa Rievers 70-59 and needing only one more victory for the Canadian title. Minnie Van Dueren must have felt disappointed with her performance against the Thunderettes Friday night as she came up with an outstanding 20-point game. Rosemary Brod erick also aided in the win with 13 points while Leona and Linda Voth each chipped in with 12. In the third and final match of the tourney the Chinooks knew a victory would mean the Canadian title which they saw slip out of their hands last year. The girls hungry for the title dumped the Victoria First United 52-40 in a hard-fought defensive battle. At half time the Chinooks led 26-22 but Victoria came within a whisker to tie the match early i the second half. The situation didn't change much until the seven minute mark as the Victoria team once again got within a basket of tying the game. The Chinooks this time broke loose and increased their lead assuring themselves the title. Leona Voth and sister Linda gave the Chinooks steady shooting hooping 18 and 15 points respectively. "SOME BLOKES ARB GOOb LOSERS ~> Raymond wins consolation side MADE DIFFERENCE Linda could be considered as the big difference as she swish ed ten of her points in the final half with fine outside shooting. For the Victoria club Judy Pearson was high scorer with nine points while Irish Had-field, Sharon Kinghorn and Gail Piatelli chipped in with six apiece. The Chinooks received the Sabbath trophy and were presented with gold medals by Frank Bain of the British Columbia Centennial Committee. University of B.C. Thunderettes, second place finishers in the round robin tournament, got sivler medals.

EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM /SULlAH THE BUTCHER vs LES THORNTON SWEETAN vs LUECK 6 Great Bouts-$2, $1.50 By LLOYD YAMAGISHI I Herald Sports Writer The Stirling Lakers representing the Southwest conference captured the Alberta "B" Boys basketball championship title before a capacity crowd in the Winston Churchill High School auditorium Saturday night. The Lakers scored a narrow 47-45 hard - fought victory over the Calgary Queen Elizabeth High School to top off a most rewarding season. Enroute to the championship final in the two-day single knockout affair the Lakers bombed the Lacombe Rams 62-33 in their tourney opener Friday night and downed Drum-heller 47-39 in the semi-finals. Meanwhile the Queen Elizabeth Knights of Calgary tripped up Camrose 41-33 in the tour' nament opener and ousted the Foremost Falcons in the other semi-final series 59-49. In the championship final both the Lakers and the Knights started out jittery ond couldn't get the butterflys out of their stomachs. The Lakers hit the scoreboard first and kept control of the situation throughout the first eight minutes of play slipping up on a few occasions. Going into the second quarter with a slim 12-11 edge the Lakers got careless and watched the Knights come to life. By the end of the quarter the Lakers found themselves in a different position trailing the Calgary club 24-20. After the brief half time rest the Lakers came out determined and anxious to regain the lead. Things started off quickly in the second half as both clubs trying desperately to win the Alberta title forced each other with end to end rushes never slowing down the pace. At the end of three quarter time the Lakers regained the lead once again and earned themselves a 41-39 lead into the final eight minutes. The fourth quarter was more or less a defensive display by both clubs as they each hooped > six points'. With a minute left in the exciting contest the -Lakers got control of the ball and went into stall - offensive attack. Leading 47-45 at this time the Lakers penetrated into the Knights zone and past the ball around hoping to eat up the time. With 30 seconds showing on the clock Lakers' coach John Hickens called a time out which only heightened the tension among the screaming fans. When the ball was put back into play the defending Knights lashed out desperately in hoping to regain possession of the ball for a final shot at the basket. As the final seconds wore away the Knights knew their dreams of winning the title were slowly vanishing and their only hope was to try next year. Brian Peterson played a fantastic game for the Lakers as he hooped 15 points and constantly came up with key defensive moves. Gordon Pengilly another guard displayed a strong per formance controlling the ball wisely on the offensive attacks. Pengilly was second high scorer for the Lakers with 10 points. For the Knights Jim Bui-lock's shooting ability was overwhelming. During the four quarters Bullock only missed two field shots and sunk both his free throw tries for a 22-point outing. In the Consolation final Edmonton's Austin O'Brien squeezed past the Lacombe Rams 61-59 after taking a 26-18 lead at the half. The Rams caught up to the Edmonton club by three quarter time and both clubs sat with 44 points apiece. Dale Ferrick and Terry Du-charski topped the Edmonton scorers with 13 points and 12 points respectively while Gordon Graves managed 23 points in a losing cause. In earlier consolation play the Edmonton Concordia beat Sexsmith Sabres 60-49 but were ousted by Lacombe in the semifinals 67-65. Austin O'Brien moved into the finals by whipping Camrose 72-50.
