The Bruins lead the best-of- seven National Hockey League championship round 3-1 and the Boston coach hopes Johnston's hot hand will put an end to the Rangers in tonight's game start- ing at p.m. MDT. "I don't know that I've ever seen him play Johnson said of the 36-year-old Johnston who stretched his playoff win- ning streak to six games in Sun- day's 3-2 triumph over the Rangers. Johnston has allowed just three goals in two starts against the Rangers, 10 goals in six post-season games and pushed his unbeaten string to eight games including his last two as- signments for Boston during the regular season. "Maybe I've seen him play better in individual games hut not in a streak like the Bruins coach said. "It started back with that 2-0 shutout of Johnson said, referring to the goalie's victory over the Maple Leafs in the quarter-finals.

There had been reports that Orr would have x-rays on the knee when he got back to Bos- ton but Johnson said Monday the super-star defenceman showed up for practice "feeling Raiders sign Caiiiille Henry NEW YORK (AP) New York Raiders of the World Hockey Association announced the signing Monday of Camille Henry, former National Hock- ey League forward, as their coach. Henry, who coached Kansas City Blues of the Central Hock- ey League, years ago, spent 16 seasons in the NHL most of them with New York Rangers.

The Raiders also announced the signing of right winger Ted Scharf, who played last season with New Jersey Devils of the Eastern Hockey League, and goalie Peter Donnelly, 8 native of Detroit. imgm. iv Francis made several refer-1 night. ences lo the Bruins' strength and depth. "You only have to look at their record over the last two years to realize just how strong they are. You don't fluke your way to the record they have." But even though the Bruins were impressive in a hard-hit- ting attack in their Sunday vic- tory, Johnson said he would like to see them improve more to- "I expect Tuesday's game to be the same kind of Johnson said. "Mayhe a little belter. I'd like to see them hit more and score more." Johnson said the thing that pleased him most about Sun- day's game was that "when we got, tho lead we didn't lay back." That was In contrast to the first game of the series when the Bniins took a 5-1 lead and then watched New York come back to tie it before Boston scored a 6-5 victory. Francis, who has been scram- bling to replace injured players throughout the series, envied the Boston bench strength. Brilliant shot the key Devlin collects HOUSTON (A) "No one will ever know what a difficult shot it was. I can't tell you how tough it don't have the words."

QUINELLA: Nova Scotia back in it HALIFAX (CP) Nova Sco- tia Voyageurs padded a one- goal second period lead with four unanswered markers in the third period before some fans here Monday night to whip Baltimore Clippers 6-1 in the fourth game of their American Hockey League final series. The win tied the best-of-seven series for the Cakler Cup at two games npiece and kept the home-ice win syndrome intact. Baltimore won the first two games at home, but dropped the third game 6-1 here Saturday. The round continues in Balti- more Thursday night. Right winger Tony Fe.ither stone put Voyageurs out in front with tile first goal of the game. Single markers came from Ger- main G a g n o n, Noel Price, Chuck Lefley, Kerry Ketter and Randy Rota.

Aaron had a 69, Graham closed with a 67 and Sanders took a 71. Rookie Chuck Thorpe, 72, Jack Ewing, 72, and Chuck Courtney, 69, were tied at 281 and Hale Irwin was alone at 282 after a final 74 in this event that was shunned by many of the game's great stars, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Billy Casper and Gary Player.

PET, CAN TALK FOR HOUR'S ON ANY r SUBJECT THE MORE LIKE DON'T EVEN LAA annual awards night Some 75 players and parents took in the first annual Leth- bridge Athletic Association hockey awards banquet at the Park Plaza Sunday night. In its first year of operation, the LAA carried only two hockey teams, but plan to ex- pand in the near future. The two teams included the Native Sons a junior club and the Moore's Imperials which was made up of bantam aged players. A total of 12 trophies were handed out to individual play- ers for their past season ef forts. Mile Shaw had a good year for the Sons in the 1971-72 sea- son and was honored with two trophies for his fine efforts. Shaw picked up the most gentlemanly player award along with a trophy for being the top junior player who show- ed the best ability, desire and attitude. Other junior players who re- ceived recognition for past sea- son performances included Ken Klinkhammer, the best de- fenceman; Randy Joevenazzo, most improved junior player; Jerry Veres, most valuable player and Tom Kveder, most improved defenceman. In the bantam awards the winners included, Barry Huber, players' choice award; Gordon Tokariuk, best defenceman; Rob Melvin, most gentlemanly player; Brent Sauer, ability, desire and attitude award; John Kogler, most improved player and Bill Zarooben, most valuable player. day night. Runs, however, were another.mailer. The veteran left-hander earned his ihird victory in lour decisions by keeping the Expos in check though just 8 1-3 innings, then giving way to Pete Mikkclson in the ninth as Los Angeles Dodgers defeated Montreal 5-2. Los Angeles won the game with four runs In the fourth in- ning, including a two-run homer by Steve Garvey, Iu's second of the season. The Expos got a run n each of the first two innings, but nothing after that. The Los Angeles-Montreal game was the only National League contest played Monday. In the only American League game, New York Yankees beat Minnesota Twins 5-3. THREW FAST BALLS "I threw fast balls about 90 per cent of the time out explained Osteen after the game. "I have two kinds of fast ball, one's a sinker and the other dips a bit." Unfortunately for the Dodg- ers, neither was working all that well. The Expos racked Os- teen for 11 hits, had other base scoring and made a loser out ol Montreal starter Jim McAnally, 0-1. The Expos had a golden op- portunity in the sixth when they loaded the bases with one out on a single by John Boccabella and errors by Bill Buckncr and Maury Wills. But Osteen got Jorgensen to lu't into a double play to end that threat. In the ninth, after Hunt lined out to open the inning, Jorgen- sen and Woods poked back-to-back singles to knock out Osteen. But Mikkelson came in to strike out Bob Bailey and Ken Singleton for his first sava of the season. The Yankees ended a five- game Minnesota winning streak and a 10-game personal streak by Bert Blyleven, 4-1, dating back to Aug. 22. Mel Stottle- myre, 2-3 got the win for tho Yankees, with relief help from Sparky Lyle.

"I couldn't move the ball around like I wanted to. "Every time I got into a bit of a that means most of the mixed in a few sli- ders with my fast balls." The Expos scored in the first on Ron Hunt's leadoff single, a passed ball by Dodger catcher Dick Dietz and Mike Jorgen' sen's run-scoring single to right. They scored again in the second on Ron Fairly's single and a double to deep left centre by Hunt. The Dodgers got on the score- board in the third when Osteen drove in Garvey with a double.
