DUNLOP FORD SALES LTD. 1510 Mayor Magrath Drive, lethbridge League final series, ranks riddled with injuries that show little promise oif improving. Mikita has a cut middle fin- ger on his right hand, suffered in the first game Sunday at Montreal and he sat out Tues- day's game. Jarrett, a solid performer on the bluelme, cracked a rib early in Tues- day's game when he fell wi'h Rjjean Houle of the Canadians on his back. Reay, who already is short- handed on defence with Keith Magnuson nursing a fractured jaw, said he's not counting on either veteran for tonight's con- test which begins at p.m. MDT. "Mikita's finger is very J Reay said. ''We found I out it wasn't broken, but it I seems to be affecting the whole ,hand Jarrett, who came back from a raid-season broken leg to start for the Black Hawks in earlier I playoff action, said: "I thought j I had winded myself when I fell I under Koub. But after I got back to the bench, I tried to take a bng breath. It was ex- cruciating." With Jarrett on the bench after his first shift Tuesday, Reay was forced to send rookie ijohn Marks back on defence, pairing wi3i another first-year player, Phil Russell. was nothing wrong with them.

He was referring to such sel- dom-used players as Dale Ho- Steve Shutt, goaltender Wayne Thomas and several key players with Nova Scotia Voy- ageurs of the American Hockey League. Reay refused to fault the goaltcnding of Tony Esposito who has allowed 12 goals in the two games at Montreal after going into the final with a 1.55 goals-agamst average.

"We figured if we get a quick one we'd have them." Defeneeman Jim Dorey started the third-period erup- tion, finishing off a good pass- ing play with Tom Wi'liams and Tom Webster at 2 !9 Brit Selby tied the score at 4-4 49 ser-onds later. PASSES CLICK He teamed with Williams and Webster and parsed the Jets dizzy before Selby slapped the puck into the open not behind a baffled Ernie Wakely. Then French scored his first goal of the playoffs, deflecting a low slapshct into the top comer. "I was lucky ar.d good on that goal. I WE.-? in the right spot and Ricky (Ley) hit my slick with his shot." John Cumff made it 6-4 before French comoloted the scoring into an emnty net. New Encla id coach Jack Kel- ley described French as a ''classic hockey "lie's not a big scorer, but he's cne of those 110 per-cen- tcrs Wil'iams in the first period and Brad Schvood in the second got the other New England goals.

"Gii e these guys the credit, they picked themselves up. That is a team that really believes in itself." The Whalers, who ran all over the Jets to win the first game 7-2 in Boston, had ('.ft! culty getting untracked Wednes- day as Winrip-eg came out skat- ing and hitting. After Beaudin scored rt 33 seconds for the Jets and Wakely came up with a sercatkral save on Webster, the ers began to concentrate on the de- fensive aspects of the gams. At the same time the Jets turned to more forechecking and it paid off for tvro full csri- cds. 'DESTROYED US' But in the third, the mi piers cime out to kill playing coach Bobby Hull scid in a subdued Jets' dressing room "they destroyed us on one shift." "They just overpowered us." Hull said the Whalers "have too much offensive power, tlwir forwards get in there and blitz us and they know how to put the puck in the net.'' "This is the kind of club you can't le' up on for second. When our guys check them they have to come back all the way not just skate beside them but check them all the way to the goal-line." Beaudin, the playoff scoring leader with 11 goals and 23 points, said when the Whalers scored the two early goals "we just died." NATIONAL LEAGUE W t. Pet.
