By THE CANADIAN PRESS While Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Black Hawks head into the final weeks of the National Hockey League season with healthy leads in their re-s p e c t i v e divisions, Boston Bruins threaten a spirited defence of their Stanley Cup. The Bruins made it four straight .Thursday night, upending the fading Buffalo Sabres 4-1 and climbed into a second-place tie in the East with New York Rangers, 13 points behind Montreal. Only a complete collapse by the Canadiens, eyeing the NHL standard for fewest losses in a season, would enable either two runners-up to overtake them. And in the West, the Black Hawks would need a similar letdown to enable either second-place Minnesota North Stars, nine points back, or Philadelphia Flyers, another point back, to move into a challenging position. Montreal, Boston, Chicago, Minnesota and Philadelphia have eight games to play in their 78-game schedule, one less than the Rangers. The schedule ends April 1. SPOTS STILL IN DOUBT And while Montreal and Chi cago seem secure in their posi tions, there are dogfights for second place in both divisions and fourth place In the East. The Bruins' championship club was severely damaged by the rival World Hockey Association this year. Goaltender Gerry Cheevers, who went 32 straight games without a loss last year, was lured away by Cleveland Crusaders. Centre Derek Sanderson signed with Philadelphia Blazers for an estimated $2.6 million but, after a disappointing start compounded by a back injury, he agreed to leave the WHA for a reported $l-million settlement and returned to Boston. The Bruins, weak both defen sively and in goal, were drifting along on the edge of elimination until Bep Guidolin's firm hand replaced the easy-going Tom Johnson behind the bench. And Bobby Orr, operating on an ailing left knee that kept him out of the opening 14 games of the season, appears to be back in shape. TRADE FOR PLANTE Guidolin and Harry Sinden, overseer of Boston's hockey operations, just beat the midnight March 3 trading deadline by securing veteran goatie Jacques Plante from Toronto Maple Leafs for a first-round draft choice and an unnamed player. The Rangers, meanwhile, have overcome a series of injuries and head into the postseason games with a relatively healthy club. Coach Emile Francis said earlier in the week only Bruce MacG-regor, out with a leg injury, would not be available. His spot is being taken by Mike Murphy, reclaimed from St. Louis Blues.

Los Angeles Sharks and Minnesota Fighting Saints made little progress Thursday night in trying to shake loose from each other in the World Hockey Association's Western Division race. The Sharks, playing before V 333 at New York, downed the Raiders 6-2 while the Saints, performing in front of 3,866 Chicago fans, dumped the Cougars 7-4. They were the only two games scheduled.
