The Edmonton native scored the winner in a 4-3 thriller with Los Angeles Kings while Vancouver Canucks nipped Minnesota North Stars 2-1 in the only other National Hockey League game. The goal was Unger's 27th of the season, a far cry from the 42 he tallied as a Red Wing last year. But the 23-year-old centre got off to a slow start at Detroit after missing most of the preseason camp while recuperating from a swimming pool accident. Unger, labelled for NHL stardom in the Toronto system, never got an opportunity to prove his worth with the Maple Leafs. They traded him along with Frank Mahovlich, Pete Stemkowski and the playing rights to Carl Brewer for Detroit's Norm Ullman, Paul Hen derson and Floyd Smith. That was in 1968, and in the succeeding years Unger built a legion of followers among the Red Wing fans, particularly in the teen-age set. MOVE A SURPRISE All the more surprising that Unger, who less than a week earlier had been listed among Detroit's untouchables, suddenly found himself at St. Louis in exchange for Blues captain, Gordon (Red) Berenson. "I think I'm getting used to the . . . guys," Unger said recently. "St. Louis is different, but the game is still the same: skate, shoot, up and down the ice." "He works hard," observed Bowman, "that's what I like. ... He knows the shortest distance to the net is a straight line." Uuger's game winner came just 2% minutes after Eddie Joyal had tied the game for the second time as the surprising Kings outshot St. Louis 36-31 in the game. Larry Mickey had put Los An geles on even terms early in the third period but Wayne Connelly, another former Red Wing sent the Blues into a 3-2 lead PLASSE MAKES DEBUT The game marked the NHL debut of St. Louis goalie Michel Plasse whio earlier this year became the first modern-day professional goaltemder to score a goal. That was with Kansas City of the Central League. The victims, Oklahoma City, had removed their goalie for a sixth attacker in an effort to tie their scheduled game. Summaries At Minneapolis, coach Jack Gordon and general manager Wren Blair were rankled by suggestions the North Stars were jockeying to finish fourth in the West Division and thereby miss playing Chicago Black Hawks in the quarter-finals. Tonight Boston Bruins visit Montreal Canadiens, Detroit is at Toronto, Chicago is at New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins entertain Buffalo Sabres, the Canucks play at Los Angeles and Minnesota is in Oakland against California Golden Seals.

GENEVA (CP) - The coach of the United States hockey game dined on vodka and caviar Tuesday night, but it wasn't the victor's spoils. Raither, it was a gift from Soviet coach Anatoli Tarasov to Murray Williamson for the spirited fight the U.S. team put up I before falling 7-5 to the Soviets in world hockey competition earlier in the day. It was the hardest-fought game the well-oiled Russian hockey machine has encountered in this year's tournament. And it didn't do a thing to alter the standings, which give the Soviets 15 points for seven wins and one tie, compared with 11 points for second-place Czechoslovakia. The Soviet lead is and has been for several games almost unassailable except for statistical chances which are so far outside the realm of probability as to be inconsequential. Still, the classy Russians were impressed enough with the U.S. team for Tarasov to embrace Williamson after the game and say, "today, the United States was not weaker than us." It was high praise for a U.S squad whose only other distinc- country tournament with two tdon is to be tied with West Ger- points each, many for last place in the six- Williamson, who said he Minor hockey The Bantam "A" semi-final play-offs between the Jets and the Maple Leafs will have to be settled in the final game of the two-game total goal series as they fought to a 4-4 draw last night.

Ron Austring led the Maple Leafs' attack ramming in two goals while Wade Popson and Kelly Vaykovich managed a goal apiece. The Ramblers captured their Bantam "B" play-off series against the Monarchs with David Toth's overtime goal last night. Darryl Vogt topped the Ram biers scorers with a brace of goals while Kim Toreason added a single. Bruce Twa and Doug Stevens picked up a goal each for the Monarchs who led 1-0 after the first period of play. In Pee Wee action the Bisons came back after their 4-2 loss in their first game of the two-game total goal play-off series against the Penguins to win the series 7-6. Last night the Bisons edged the Penguins 4-3 with the help of Ross Matheson's three goal performance. Chuck Moore picked up the winner with his third period marker.
