Francis, however, had n good medical report on Hatclle and Fairbairn. Ralelle, coming off a hroken ankle, played his first game in nearly two months Sunday and Fairbairn was tripped up by Uoston's Jolmny Bucyk. He suf- fered a knee injury in (lie colli- sion. "Billy worked out for an hour this morning and there was no p r o h 1 e said the Ranger cnacli. "As for Jean, there's no change planned for him. "I'll continue to use Bobby Rousseau on Jean's line with Vic (Iladfield) and Rod Gilbert, lie's hcen going pretty good. Jean is skating well so I'll use him a little more. "He's not suffering any 111 ef- fects and has no problem skat- ing. But unless I go with four lines, 1 don't think he's ready for regular shift." LINKUP NOT SET The Cat, as Francis is known, said he hadn't sctlled on what realignment Slew-art's injury would force him into for the second game. "I might dress six defence- men instead of 12 forwards and still have enough for four Francis said, adding: "You know, 1 can always use Rod Selling as a forward." Francis would not rap lu's vet- eran goaltender, Ed Giacomin, for getting pulled out of position on Bailey's game-winner with left in the game. "Eddie made the right move tried to stick-check the puck off Bailey's said Francis. "But what surprised me was the fact that Bailey was even able lo get around in front of the net. "1 thought Brad Park had skaled him out of position. Then suddenly he's in front of the net. "Eddie went down on one knee lo poke-check him and suddenly the puck went up his slide into (he net." DOESN'T NAME GOALIE Despite his forebearance, Francis continued his game-Lo- game policy of naming his starting netminder "on the day of tlie game." Giacomin shared the chores with Gilles Villemurc during the season and when Giacomin was injured in the first game of the semi-fir.als with Chicago Black Hawks Villemure moved in to sweep three more from the Hawks. Boslon coach Tom Johnson has a different approach. "I like to let them (goalies) know a day ahead of lime lo let them prepare for the said JoluiEon. Veteran Ed Jolmston Is schd- uled to start tonight's game, in a continuing Boston policy to al- ternate don't call it alternating, just using them every other says John- son. "They're both playing real so it doesn't matter who 1 start." Johnston has a 1.75 goal-a- gainst average, allowing only seven goals in four playoff games while Gerry Cheevers has let iii 10 shots in six games for a 2.64 average. Says: "Golfer of the Year" STILL HEAD STEADY SWING A still hud until the ball is struck is essential to a correct swing, for arc and result in flush, hits. Htre is a good way to detect possible head movement. On tha practice tee, have 'a j friend stand opposite your chest and rest the f grip end of a dub on top of your head. If your lead bobs or moves erally, he'll be able to tell z by the movement of the C dub. Practice until you- get the feeling of a slid g this will help keep your head, and your game will p- club head moving in a improve.
