TABER "See Us For The Best Deal In The South" (Formerly Scropian Soles) PH. "PARTS AND SERVICE FOR ALL BIKES AND MOTORCYCLES" Chippy play, but no major infractions as yet Orr not surprised with final series NEW YORK (CP) There'i nothing unusual in the pattern of play employed by the tw teams Involved in the Stanley Cup final. Bobhy Orr, Boston Bruins Hart and Norris trophies win ner, was asked lo comment Fri day on the style of gam against New York Rangers in which the action lias swung from wide-open, to light-check ing, to a free-skating game. "If you go back over the sea replied the young delen sive superstar, "you'll see thi is the pattern of game we've had with New York." Boston took the first tw games of the best-ot-seven ser ies to decide the 1971-72 Na tional Hockey League title a home, 6-5 and 2-1, end lost the third game here Thursday night, 52. The two teams meet here again Sunday at 2 p.m. EDT. "Im not a bit surprised at thi style of play in the games so Orr said. "I've felt al along it was going to be a long series and I don't have any rea son to change my thinking now." HITTING NOT HARD Surprising so lar in the series has been the lack o[ bodily con tact in a post-game round tha was expected to produce mucl solid hitting, a game conducive to tlie success of both teams. The three games to date have produced a lot of chippy play by both clubs, but no major infrac tions. Emile Francis, New York's general manager-coach, saic Friday the Ranger success in the third game was Boston's in ability lo solve the home team's power play. "New York ice Is longer than Boston I Garden) and the cor ners are Francis said 'This gives players on em- power play more chances to manoeuvre and get the puck back to the point man. "Because of its larger size (10 [eet longer than Boston Garden) and the players' familiarity with the Ice surface, this makes .he Hanger power play Francis added by way of ex- Dlaining the three early goals in Thursday's game when the Rangers scored with a man- power advantage. R a n g e r s' Jean Ratelle, awarded the Lady Eyng Trophy as the NHL's player best com lining ability and sportsman- ahip at Friday's annual award's uncheon here, was used spar- ngly by Francis alter the first period after the New Yorkers gained a 3-1 lead. "The early lead enabled us to rest Ratelle more than I in- ended. But, there's no sense pushing him when he wasn't needed." Ratelle broke his ankle In I ;ame March 1 and has since ilayed only in the three games against Boston. Francis has jeen spotting his all-star centre almost exclusively on the power tlay between lineinates Vic Hadfield and Rod Gilbert. Earlier in the series Ralelle ilso saw duty on the Rangers' ourth line but the New York oach was forced to abandon liat scheme when veteran Ron ilewart was knocked out of the ilayoffs with a broken jaw in he opening game. Stewart's loss leaves Francis Cougars visit Royals Sunday The Lethbridge Royals will see action for the first time this season as they host the Calgary Cougars In an exhibi- tion soccer encounter Sunday afternoon. Game time is set for 3 p.m. at the Civic Sporls Centre. In a quandary. Two of Rangers' defensive corps were injured in Thursday's game. Veteran Jim Neilson's status Is questionable. He has strained knee ligaments. Rookie Ah DeMarco 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 wiU 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. "He has Guelph sweeps series GUELPH, Onl. fCP) Guelph CMCs blanked Red Dee Rustlers 3-0 here Friday nigh to sweep the Centennial Cup li nals in four straight eamcs.
