"PARTS AND SERVICE FOR AIL BIKES AND MOTORCYCLES" NEW YORK (CP) There's othing unusual in the pattern play employed by the two ams Involved in the Stanley up final.

"If you go back over the sea- replied the young defen- ve superstar, "you'll see this s the pattern of game we've ad with New York." Boston took the first two araes of the best-of-seven ser- es to decide the 1971-72 Na- onal Hockey League title at ome, 6-5 and 2-1, and lost the hird game here Thursday ight, 5-2. The two teams meet here gain Sunday at 2 p.m. EOT "Ira not a bit surprised at the tyle of play in the games so Orr said. "I've felt all along it was going to be a long eries and I don't have any rea- on to change my thinking low." HITTING NOT HARD Surprising so far in the series has been the lack of bodily con- act in a post-game round tha was expected to produce much solid hitting, a game conducive o the success of both teams. The three games to date have produced a lot of chippy play bj joth clubs, but no major inirac tions. Emile Francis, New York' general manager-coach, sail Friday the Ranger success ir the third game was Boston's in ability to solve the home team' power play. "New York Ice is longer than Boston (Garden) and the cor ners are Francis saic "This gives players on oui power play more chances t manoeuvre and get the puds back to the point man. "Because of its larger size (1 feet longer than Boston Garden and the players' familiaritj with the Ice surface, this make the Hanger power play Francis added by way of ex plaining the three early goals ii Thursday's game when th Rangers scored with a man power advantage.

"The early lead enabled us t rest Ratelle more than I in tended. But, there's no sens pushing him when he wasn needed." Ratelle broke his ankle In game March 1 and has sine played only in the three game against Boston. Francis ha been spotting his all-star centr almost exclusively on the powe play between linemates Vi Hadfield and Rod Gilbert. Earlier in the series Ratel also saw duty on the Ranger fourth line but the New Yor coach was forced to abando that scheme when veteran Ro Stewart was knocked out of th playoffs with a broken jaw i the opening game.

He has strained nee 1 i g a m e n t s. Rookie Ab eMarco is more definite. Bos- ton centre Garnet Bailey's skate inflicted a deep wound in De- Marco's left thigh when the two fell along the boards and the young New York player will miss the rest of the series. That reduced the healthy New York blueline brigade to three players for the final 10 minutes of the game. "I told Glen Sather to get Francis recalled during Friday's luncheon.

"The man I'd normally drop back in a case like that would be Stewart. But he's out." Francis was still pondering what action to take if Neilson is unable to dress Sunday.
