box 24 seconds earlier but Crisp had not had a chance to head back to the bench Boston defencernan Carol Vadnais lost the puck to him deep in the Bruin zone and Crisp scored with a shot that went in off netmmder Gilles Gilbert s pad The Bruins appeared to lose their momentum after that goal and while the Flyers didn't score again until the third they maintained the almost relentless attack they mounted after Crisp s goal for the rest of the game They torechecked the Biuins back checked diligently and dominated the taceoff circle And the control exhibited by the Fivers paid off when centre Orest Kmdrachuk and left winger Ross Lonsberry added to their lead in the final 20 minutes I m glad for Crisp because he isn t playing said Philadelphia coach Fred Shero But he can play anywhere and he helps whenever he can The Bruins had started taking a 1-0 lead when Johnny Bucyk scored after only 63 seconds Bobby Orr passed the puck to Greg who hit the post with his shot Bucyk banged in the rebound Philadelphia pulled even nine minutes later when defencernan Tom Bladon's shot from the right point on a power play entered the Boston net in the lower right hand corner After Bucyk'b goal the

Chaki rapped three h'ts for the wmners while A.llen aided his own cause with a single eight of the 12 faceoffs he took for the Flyers against Esposito and was 19 for 32 in the game Esposito won only eight of 24 faceoffs Shero said the Flyers changed their strategy to defend against Orr s great rushing ability We used to play him as other teams on him in end and make him pass to his then he goes free back into the play said Shero Today we wanted him to have the puck and we got on him on him staved in front of tired him out Boston coach Bep Guidohn was furious with the play of his team and said that only a hall dozen of his players had performed well He refused to name them The Flyers lost veteran right winger Gary Dornhoefer who suffered a separation of his left shoulder late in the

to make it a team said Gilbert There are only three or four guys prepared mentally and that's not enough Shero said he watched films taken during the season of Boston-New York Ranger games because
