LEAFS MANHANDLED The Canadiens, who manhon-llcd Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 iVcdnesday night, climbed to viUiin two points of the Rangers who dropped their first game of he season lo Chicago Black Hawks, 3-1, in the only other scheduled games. The New Yorkers with a jamc in hand, have been lahor-ng since the loss of centre Jean Ratcllc, sidelined with a cracked ankle. Gary Croteau, Craig Patrick and Paul Shmyr broke open a ight game at Oakland where lie Seals started gathering momentum in the second period and shelled las Angeles goalie 3ary Edwards with 32 shots in :he second and third periods. The loss ended any remote chance of the Kings, last in the West, making the playoffs. With seven games remaining, Los Angeles fell 15 points behind the Seals. Frank Mahovlich and Ken Dryden provided the impetus at Toronto where the Canadiens dominated play far more than the shots on goal indicated. BIG M SCORES 2 The free-wheeling Montreal-ers had little trouble handling the Leafs with the Big M scoring two goals, Nos. 37 and 38, and setting up two power-play counters by Guy Lafleur and Guy Iiapointe. His first goal of the night, at of the first period that propelled the Canadiens into a 2-0 lead, also came on a Montreal power play as Toronto's Brian Glcnnie had finished serving a minor penalty. Dryden, the Canadiens1 rookie goaltender instrumental in Montreal fashioning a Stanley Cup victory last year, was sharp when called upon but few of the 43 shots directed his way were difficult. But Montreal coach Scottj Bowman took offence to a Toronto move to upset his players when Leafs' captain Dave Keon, acting on orders from interim coach King Clancy, had referee Bill Friday confiscate centre Jacques L e m a i r e 's stick to check the curvature of the blade. The move, just after Toronto's Mike Pelyk was given a penalty at of the opening period, backfired, with Laflcur's goal gelling the Canadiens started. FOUND WITHIN LIMITS The stick was later found to he within NHL regulations so far as the curve was concerned, but in measuring the blade Friday discovered it was one-quarter inch narrower than the 2-! 2 to three inches allowed. As a resultj Lemaire was fined It marked the second lime in as many weeks the rarely-used rule has been called. New York coach Emilc Francis lodged a protest of the stick being used by Chicago's Stan Mikifa last Swedish players STOCKHOLM (AP) The National Hockey League again is oul to gel Swedish slar players, "and this time it is a leading Swedish hockey writer said Wednesday. The newly formed World Hockey Association also has Ul-cut scouts in Sweden, saying they will try to buy about 20 Swedish players, but many star players, although cautious in their statements, have made clear they prefer the NHL over the WHA. Tominie Bergman, 23, considered the best Swedish player, has confirmed he received an offer from a big NHL club when playing in the Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan. And "I know-that about half of the Swedish national team has been contacted by American and Canadian he Yes." replied Aldridge. "Most people don't realize the amount ol emotion that goes into playing a game and as a result, some of them (the players) get sick to their stomach some of the time. This strain causes players to say 'Let's popa few lo see what happens.'" SHOULD NOT INTERFERE Aldridge, who said he didn't lake pills, added he did not feel the league should interfere because "these aro grown men who should know how to take care of their bodies and therefore should be mature enough to make Ihis decision." The Argo veteran did not specify the type ol pills taken by the players. Cosentino, who was quarter-back in the CFL with Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Toronto Argonauts and Edmonton Eskimos before turning to the coaching ranks two years ago, said players were taking benzedrine tablets when he broke into the league in 1960. L'I played with one club that Ihc trainer handed them lie recalled, adding that the practice was stopped. Asked if he thought pain killers were being abused, Cosentino replied: "No. These must be authorized by the c ulj physician." However, he said professional football players sometimes fear playing below par in front of fans and in taking pills they were "looking for evened Uic score at 1-1 liis 42ml of the year.
