In tonight's action. New York Hangers invade Iloslon Garden to meet the Bruins, Buffalo en- tertains Minnesota North Stars A r_ -By Pal Sullivan T ETHBRIDGE Sugar Kings cannot afford to lose tonight when they play host to the Red Deer Rustlers. The luxury of a loss belongs solely to the Rustlers following Tuesday night's 3-1 triumph over the Kings in Red Deer in the fifth game of their best-of-sevett Alberta Junior Hockey League semi-final. Rustlers, defending league and Canadian champ- ions, lead the scries 2-1 with two games tied. This year the Alberta league lias decided to use an eight- point playoff system. It simply means that the first team to earn eight points is the series winner. At this stage the Rustlers have the inside track. Should the Kings stave oft elimination, it is back to Red Deer for what could he the deciding game this weekend. Kings, by tradition, do not like the Red Deer Arena or its 'supporters, bill if they are lo stay alive in the Alberta playoffs they will have to make at least one more trip to the Central Alberta city. To date, the Kings have surprised me. A young club with vei-y little playoff experience, they have more than held their own. It is not out of the question to say they could win the series, but starling now il is all uphill. and Chicago Black Hawks arc at Philadelphia against the Ixithbridgc Marlands recent-j Don CoutLs scored three ly captured the southern times and paced the Bears to a berta Pop Wee title and will solid 7-2 rictorv over the Can- wait until the northern Alberta ueks in Pee Wee playoff action champions are decided before j Wednesday night. provincial final playoff can j David Maciura chipped be played.

Pro registration for tiie course may be completed through the Registrar's office The crowds have been good for the Kings' home games thus far in the series, and tonight should he no exception. It gripes me that the league decided upon the eight-point system. By doing so they have taken one of the most exciting elements of playoff hockey away from the paying customers, and I refer, of course, to overtime. Twice the Kings and Rustlers have battled to a stalemate and on two other occassions the issue wasn't settled until an empty-net goal decided things. I know I'm not alone in favoring overtime. Some- one once said that tie games are like kissing your sister. 1 couldn't agree more. The patrons deserve lo see a final decision. It is too late to do anything about il this year, but let's forget this eight-point system. It is called a best-of-scven series. Lei's leave it at that. Let's restore overtime. This eight-point playoff is just one of the bad habits picked up from the Western Canada Hockey League. Next thing you know we'll have best of nine series or five-games, tola! points. II is becoming that ridiculous. Regardless of who wins this Lethbridge-Retl Deer series, Ihe winner should take Ihe league title, Calgary Canucks and Edmonton Maple Leafs are currently deadlocked 3-3 in their semi-final. The Can- ucks are an expansion team and a pretty good one mind you, but either the Rustlers or Kings should be able to best them. As far as Ihe Leafs go, both the Kings and Rustlers held a decisive edge in games played against the Capital City club, in league play and both, f feel, are superior clubs. It hasn't been the rosiest of years for the Kings. There has been dissension on Ihe team itself as well as with management. It would be nice to see the kids pull through.

The Canadicns, who had won four of (lie previous five meet- ings between fhe two clubs this year, opened fast and pressed the Leafs throughout the first period. i Montreal opened a 3-0 lead be- fore the Toronto club found its skating legs and completed the comeback with Jim HarrLson's power-play goal less than two minutes remaining, CLUB HECOKD left winger Frank ahovlich, who counted his 2nd goal, established a club for left wingers, break- g (he mark of '11 lip ith now-retired Dtckie Moore.

"That point Ls the one thai oitld well put us in the play- said King Clancy, Toron- o's interim coach." I think could have beaten them lo- ight if U hadnt been for that oalie of theirs."
