New York Rangers have the a 3-2 win over the Bruins Tuesday night at Boston and ihc home-ice advantage here tonight for the sixth game in the best-of-seven series for the National Hockey League title. "It didn't help Johnson said Wednesday shortly after his club arrived in the cily. "We won here Sunday (3-2) then let last night. The Bruin coach suggested it was not so much New York's ability as his own cluh's inept performance that enabled the Rangers, who now trail 3-2 in games, to knock off the heav- ily-favored Bruins in game No. 5.

"However, by (he nature of our Canadian hockey set-up, with so many leagues, tions and organizations, each wiLh Its own vested interest, it could be very difficult to assem- ble our best team if some were to be so short-sighted as to let their private interest prevail. "As the ornier of an NHL club and a major arena, I wish to offer my assistance to you in the following ways: 1. Every player on the To- ronto Maple Leafs club, whom Hockey Canada wishes for this event, has my complete permis- sion to participate as needed, with no strings attached; 2.

"From this world series of Ballard WTote, "it would appear that a substantial profit will be realized and I trust it will te used to further Hockey Canaca's second objec- tive, namely the development of the game here at home.

PHONE 32B-9444 the Rangers lulled us to said Johnson, adding: "We didn't play our usual aggressive game." His words echoed the pnst- game sentiments of several Boston players. They'll get a chance to re- verse the picture tonight in Ma- dison Square Garden starting nt p.m. MDT. The Bruins aren't suffering from any of the minor ailments they normally acquire when they're playing the aggressive hitting game that has carried them to two straight East Divi- sion titles. "We really didn't make much contact out there to absorb any Johnson replied to reporters' questions about the health of his team. R a n g e r 's Emile Francis, meanwhile, held court for re- ports in his Garden's office witli the tidings from the wee hours of the morning still evident on his face. The New Yorkers were met by nearly fans when they arrived hack at LaGuardia air- port about 1 a.m. and the buf- feting and glad-handing of play- ers and management alike left a warm glow. "I took more checks going through two lines of those peo- ple than I did in my enlire hockey said the one- time NHL goaltender who per- formed in the days when it was unheard of for a goalie to fore- sake tha relative safety of his crease. "We appreciated those people meeting us. The crowd gave us a real lift." JUGGLING HELPS The Rangers got their biggest lift, however, when Francis de- cided before the third period of Tuesday's game to juggle his lineup, inserting Bobby Ilous- seau between Ted Irvine and Brace MacGregor. It was no shot in the dark. He had used the same makeshift trio several times during the season. liousscau, used sparingly in the game as point man on Iho New York power play, re- sponded lo the rotating chores immediately wilh two goals that lifted the Rangers from a 2-1 deficit. The goals were his first against Boston since Nov. 1, when he was with Mont- real Canadiens. Francis said he recalled using the trio against Montreal earlier in the season with New York down 3-1. The unit spear-headed a six-goal period and the New York coach has found them will- ing to respond in emergencies several times since that initial formation.

OTTAWA (CP) Peterbor- ough Pelcs cslahlislied them- selves as solid favorilcs to win the 1972 Memorial Cup Wedncs day night with a convincing 0-4 win over Edmonton Oil Kings. Coming on Ihe heels of their 4 2 win over Quebec champion Cornwall Royals Monday, Hie victory put Petes iulo Sunday's sudden-death final for national junior hockey honors. The Royals and the Oil Kings play Friday for Uu right pose Ihe Ontario champions. Both general-manager Bill Hunter and coach Brian Shaw of Edmonton were upset with the part played in their team's loss by two illegal-stick penal- ties. In Violh coses the slicks were less than two inches thick at the blade, the minimum stipulated in Canadian Amateur Hockey Association rules. The Petes cashed in on the first such call to score the win- ning goal early in the third pe- riod and Hunter called it "a cheap way to win a hockey game." PETES SHOW EDGE But on the ice the Petes dis- played a big edge over the Western champions. Strongest evidence was that they allowed the Oil Kings only two shots on net in the final period and the first after more than 13 minutes I of play. In all Edmonton tested Peter- borough goalie Mike Veisor 33 times while the Petes had 49 shots on John Davidson, picked up for the playoffs by the Kings from Calgary Centennials. For the most part, it was not an entertaining game for the 5.027 fans. And referee Marce' Vaillancourt appeared easy on the two teams in calling 12 minor penalties, seven of them to Edmonton. Doug Gibson, n smontliy nt centre for the Petes, got two goals and Iwo assists, adding to his first game total of two points. He now has a command- ing lead over individual scorers in the tournament. Ron Lalonde, who got a pair against Cornwall Monday, added another goal against Ed- monton. Jim Turkiewicz, Rick Chinnick and Jim Jones scored the other Peterborough goals. Brian Ogilvie's slapshot from outside the bluehne provided the first Edmonton goal. Terry M c D o n a 1 d, Don Kozak and Darcy Rota also scored for the Oil Kings. The Kings were rated tourney favorites by many pro hockey scouts but didn't live up to these expectations. They managed a 2-1 lead after the first 20 minutes on goals by Ogilvie and McDonald. Lalonde was Hie Peterborough scorer. KINGS SEEM TO FADE After a lacklustre start of the second period, Peterborough rapped in three quick goals and the Kings seemed to be fading. But back-to-back penalties to Peterborough gave Edmonton the opportunity to bang home WCIAA formally dissolved CALGARY The Western Canada Tntercoiregiate Athletic Association was form- ally dissolved Wednesday with the formation of the Canada West University Athletic Asso- ciation. The announcement was made in a news release during week- long meetings of western uni- versity representatives.

Both associations will be in- dependent.
