Monroe contributed 21 as Now j The Knicks, ice-cold in their West got only one point In the CHICAGO (CP) Montreal Canadiens could be shouldering the Stanley Cup for the 16th time since 1927 Tuesday night, a National Hockey League record, and the man who car- ries it could be playing his last game. Thirty-seven-year-old Henri Richard has provided an in- spiration to the younger players this season, and it was never more in evidence than Sunday's 4-0 victory over Chicago Black Hawks that gave the Canadiens a 3-1 edge in the best-of-seven NHL final. "The way he's skating now he's good for five more said Marc Tardif, who scored the first goal and set up the in- surance score by Yvau Courno- yer in a game that was domi- nated by Montreal skaters. "There are a lot of guys 25 years old in this league who should be retired before Henri. He just keeps skating all th3 time while they seem to be standing around." NO POINTS Richard, the greying Mon- treal captain and brother of Hall of Famer Maurice (Rocket) Richard, didn't pick up a point against the Hawks, but it was obvious from his ef- forts the youngsters on the team were following his lead. "He's really got to impress you with his size and Tardif said in a post-game in- terview. Richard has said on occasion he will be retiring after this, his 18th season in the league. He lias, however, hedged on mak- ing a total commitment to his retirement, saying he will make his decision known after the playoffs are over. "I can tell added Tar- dif, "he will be sorely missed if he does quit."

Los Angeles called time out, then set up a play in which Eorickson took a jumper from the left side. The ball bounded oft the back rim and Reed re- covered. The Knicks held on until Walt Frazier was fouled with two .seconds to play. He sank both free throws, sealing the victory. The Knicks took charge in the third quarter, outscoring Los Angeles 25-13, holding the La- kers to one basket in the final eight minutes of the period. New York forged ahead for good, 58-36, on a driving layup by Phil Jackson at the mark of the quarter. Then Los Angeles' Wilt Chamberlain in- curred his fourth personal foul and was tagged with a technical as well afier waving his hand angrily and screaming at refereee Jack Madden. him one away from the post- season record held by team- mate Frank Mahovlich. "I'm not thinking about the the swift little right winger said. "The Stanley Cup is more important." Chuck Lefley and Claude La- rose completed the Montreal scoring, Lefley making it 3-0 just 90 seconds after Coumo- yer's goal as Montreal demora- lized Chicago's- offence after skating off a penalty to Guy Lapointe. "I can't recall ever seeing a tsam under such extreme pres- said Montreal goaltender Ken Dryden of the assault on his counterpart in the Chicago goal, Tony Esposito. "They (Canadiens) weren't just moving the puck around casually, they were going for the net all the time." The Hawks have lost 13 treal ice and Hawks centre Pit Martin said the odds are against their braaking that string Tuesday in the fifth game. Ex-Canadicn Ralph Backst- rom, however, was hopeful. "I can't see them playing much said Backstrom. "But their defence played ex- ceptionally well. "If we looked said Backstrom, "it was because they made us. They controlled the game." How well the Montreal de- fence, led by Lapointe, Serge Savard, Pierre Bouchard, Larry Robinson and Bob Murdoch, controlled play was apparent from the number of saves Dry- den had to make in chalking up his first shutout in 41 playoff games. The Montreal goalie had to make just 19 saves and he counted the tough ones on one hand later in the Canadiens locker room. "I can recall a couple of hard ones in the second Dryden said. "And there was one by Dennis Hull late in the game." It marked the first time Chi- cago had been blanked in 69 playoff games. Jacques Lemaire, who along with Tardif and Cournoyer gave the Canadiens their biggest scoring threat Sunday, credited Montreal's skating with keeping the Black Hawks bottled up in their end most of the game. "We were getting on top of them and they couldn't said the Canadiens' centre. "Skating made the big differ- ence, but that Esposito made some real good saves." Tardif didn't think the Hawks played any different than they had in earlier games In the series. World Association title to New England It's 'maybe next year' for Jets BOSTON (CP) Veteran de- fenceman Ted Green helped bring Boston its third major league hockey championship in four years Sunday, bringing with him the maturity and ex- perience that molded New Eng- land Whalers into the first World Hockey Association champions. Green hoisted the World Hockey Trophy as hundreds of the fans swarmed onto the Boston Garden ice and en- gulfed both teams after New England defeated Winnipeg Jets 9-6 to win the best-of-seven series in five games. "It's a great feeling to be on three championships in four years." An elated Green said after the victory, "and it's an even greater feeling to win both at home." Green was a member of the National Hockey League Boston Bruins when they won two Stan- ley Cups. The New England victory came on the strength of three goals oy centre Larry Pleau and outstanding work by goal- tender Al Smith. JETS CAME CLOSE Pleau shut off a Winnipeg rally with a pair of last-period goals after the Jets, trailing 6-2 early in the second period, had battled to within one goal early in the third. "That's the way it's been all season long." Green said. "When they got close we just pushed it again." That feeling was echoed by all the Whalers, including Pleau and coach Jack Kelley who said his club was tired but "came back together in the third pe- riod." It was a great team Pleau said. "It seems every time they came close to us we're able to pull away.'1 New England grabbed a 5-2 first-period lead with Pleau, Tom Webster, Rick Ley, Guy Smith and Tim Sheeny scoring. Danny Johnson and Norm Beaudin replied for Winnipeg. Webster made it 6-2 just 15 ther of those two fine teams or th? National Hockey League." "This is a challenge intended only to restore to the people their right to see a true cham- pion decided in this, the world's fastest sport." The Stanley Cup was donated in 1895 by Frederick Arthur, Lord of Stanley, a challenge trophy for amateur hockey teams. It eventually became the sole possession of the profes- sionals however, and since 1910 has been regarded as the NHL's most prized possession. Magmisseii turns pro TORONTO (CP) Karen Magnussen of North Vancouver, women's world figure-skating champion, will sign a profes- sional contract next week worth more than a year, her lawyer said Sunday. Miss Magnussen, 20, who won the world championship this year at Bratislava, Czech- oslovakia, visited here during the weekend but referred ques- tions about her pro contract to lawyer Alan Eagleson. "There will be a formal an- nouncement at a press confer- ence in her home city, Van- couver, a week from Eagleson said. Asked what the contract would be worth, he said: "You can speculate all you want but I'd say it will be in excess of a year. It will be much more than that paid Peggy Fleming of the United States, former world champion, who turned pro April 4, 1968." Miss Fleming was reported to have signed a contract for five years.
