Broken down the money dis- tribution, 1971 figures in brack- ets, looks like this: fuiish, Stanley Cup a man finish, Stanley Cup finish, Stanley Cup finish, Stanley Cup finish, Stanley1 Cup finish, Stanley Cup finish, Stanley Cup finish, Stanley Cup In all cases, there will he 21 full units for each team, includ- ing the regular-season awards. NHL president Clarence Campbell said the new mone- tary set up was part of continu- ing negotiations between the NHL owners and the NHL Play- ers' Association. ARBITRATION STAYS He said that both sides bad agreed on an extension of the present arbitration system through the 1974-75 season. "Since May 1971, we have been negotiating on a total Campbell said. "In June 1971 readied a broad agreement on the increase for Stanley Cup awards and we lave continued to negotiate the remaining details since that Lime." "We are hopeful that we can conclude the remaining items at the June ajuiual meetings." A NHL news conference scheduled for Toronto Wednes- day was cancelled and there had heen reports that the con- ference was to announce that Stanley Cup-winning teams would receive for their win and that losing teams' shares would he cut. But Campbell said1 in an inter- view Tuesday that the confer- ence was called off because "the provisional agreement" reached between the NHL own- ers and the players association was not going to be put into effect. Alan E a g I e s o n, executive- director of the players' associa- tion saidi "We had anticipated we could resolve everything by today. "Bus Stan Mikiia and Red Bcrenson felt that this matter is so important they shouldn't speak for the association with- out a fu71 discussion with all the player reps, which isn't pos- sible this late in the season." battle for fourth in the West re- mained unsettled after Pitts- burgh Penguins came from a 4-1 deficit to edge California Goldeji Seals 54 and move into a fourtli-placo tie with Philadel- phia Flyers, eliminating the Seals. Iji other games, Montreal Canadioiis baltled back at Chi- cago for a 5-5 tie with the Black Hawks and Los Angeles Kings trimmed Vancouver Canucks 4- 2. Philadelphia, with a game in hand or the Penguins, is fit home tonight in the only sched- uled game against Buffalo Sabres. The Wings, sailing along on first-period goals by Nick Libett and Mickey Ttedmond, kept the New Yorkers in check until Hadfield exploded with his 47th and 48Ui goals at and of the third period. The tie clinched second ui the East for the Hangers, who have been hit by a series of injuries in recent weeks: to centre Jean Ratelle, winger Rod Gilbert, de- fenceman Brad Park and for- ward Bruce McGregor, rtatelle was No. 2 man in the scoring race with 109 points when he was knocked out of ac- tion with a cracked ankle sev- eral games back. Unemate Gil- bert was sidelined last week with a neck injury and Park with a knee ailment. INJURIES HIT BRUINS The Leafs, meanwhile, took advantage. of knee injuries to Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr to shackle the Bruins with power play goals by Hon Ellis and Jim McKcnny late in the opening pe- riod for a 4-0 lead. Esposito, who notched his 66th goal early in the second period, continued to favor his left knee injured against Montreal last weekend and retired to the Bos- ton bench after the score. All-star defenceman Orr, who injured his left knee in a 6-3 loss to Detroit Tuesday, saw only one shift on a first-period power May then donned street clothes. Esposito and Orr are running one-two in the scoring race with 133 and 117 points respectively. Boston coach Tom Johnson said later he didn't want to use Orr at all but the defenceman said he wanted to test the in jury. Johnson said he was under no obligation to use cither player, no matter how important a game was involved, because of their injuries. The game was important to Boston in that they suffered their 12th loss of the season, dropping to within one of the NHL record for fewest losses, established by Detroit during the 1950-51 season. STOP CHEEVEBS" STRING It also stopped Bruin goal- tender Gerry Cheever's per- sonal unbeaten string at 32 games, 24 wins and eight ties. The game, which threatened to get out of hand when Toron- to's Bob Baun and Bruin winger Wayne Cashman drew fighting majors in the first period, al- most carried over into the corri- dor to the players' dressing room. Leaf coach King Clancy, ap- parently taking offence at some- thing Johnson was yelling at referea John Ashley, rushed to- ward Uie Boston bench hut was brought up short by the Bruin trainer. Baun didn't see any action fol- lowing the fight after taking two solid liits on his already dam- aged nose. Clancy said the vet- eran defenceman wanted to play "but he's loo valuable to me at this stage and I couldn't sec him going out and getting the nose busied up again." While the Clancy-Johnson rhu- barb was nipped in the bud, rival coaches got together in mid-ice at Chicago after Serge Savard's score with 39 seconds remaining had pulled tlie Canadiens even. Montreal's Scolty Bowman and Billy Reay of Chicago had words, then Reay shoved Bow- man before linesmen moved in to separate Ihc two. The Canadiens, who learned earlier they couldn't cnangc New York's second-place finish in tho East, replaced starting goaltender Ken Dryden with Phil Myre early in the third pe- riod and the Hawks ahead 4-2. Montreal started to scramble back on goals by Pete Mahov- lich and Guy Lafieur to even the score by (he mark be- fore Pit Martin gave CVcago the again with less than three minutes remaining. The Penguins, who twice (.railed by three goals, surged back with Ihree goals Pitts- burgh to keep their playoff hopes alive. _______ Celtics win in old style BOSTON (AP) "It's been a long time coach Tfcrnmy Heinsohn said after Boston Celtics returned to the National Basketball Associa- tion's playoffs for the first lime in three years Wednesday night. They did it in true Celtics fashion, calling on a team effort in racehorse style to s'iampcde Atlanta Hawks, 126-108. "That's what we've been look- ing for" Heinsohn said of the Celtics performance in (he opener of the NBA first round hcst-flf-sevcn Eastern Confer ence playoffs. 30-28 at quarter.
