Hustlers moved into first place wilh a 7-4 win over Ed- monton Movers Satiu'day night in the Capital. Sugar King coach John Chap- man simply shook his head after the game Sunday and promptly called a meeting. The locals, it seems, are in for a shaking up. Saturday night George Mc- Crea fired home two goals for (he Kings wilh Len Chalmers adding a singleton. The Irio ol markers were not enough to' offset a high-flying Stampeder band as Marcel Comeau notch- ed a pair while solo efforts were turned in by John Simp- Ion and John Lychak. II. was Lychak's marker at of the final period that gave Pon-' oka the win. Sunday Fraser Robertson, McCrea, Dave George, Lanny McDonald and Archie HcLcn nan paced the Kings with a goal each.

Kings spur wiin ronoKa winning D-J aunaay Junior Hockey League action at the Arena. Sugar King after losing 4-3 h iMiiiiFiTiiHH Blank Rangers, North the NHL's scoring leader wltti 19 poinls, was Ihwarted continually by goalie Cesare Maniago who faced 50 Bruins shots. Esposito managed only one assist despite liis 13 shots on goal. PADS LEAD However, his Ihree assists ta thc game agaJnst New York helped pad his scoring lead to three points over McKenzie and snapped the Rangers' win string at seven. His weekend point production also moved the 20-year-old native of Sault Sic. Marie, Ont., over the 500-point plateau, the 42nd NHLer to reach that goal His career totals now include goals ajid 2M assists for 502 points. Boston defenceman Bobby Orr, who dislodged Esposito 33 the scoring champion last year, registered a goal and three assists against New York as veteran Ed Johnston turned in the first Boston shutout of the year. The Rangers extended home-ice winning streak to six as they scored tliree times against Chicago's Vezina. Trophy winner, Tony Esposito, in Uie first period enroute to their Sunday win. At Detroit, the Maple Leafs were in an uphill battle all tho way as Frank Mahovlich, with his first of two goals, and Nick Libhelt gave the Red Wiugo a 20 first-period lead. But with Keon's two goals and an assist, and steady goaltending from Bruce Gamble, Toronto finally clinched victory when rookie Guy Trottier broke a 4-4 fie wilh his third-period goal. By IAN1 MacLAIXE Canadian Press Slaff Writer His words lacked Ihe eloquence of a William Shakespeare, but one would find il difficult to argue the case pul forward by Boson Bruins' Gerry Cheevers. Earlier this season, even before file N a t i o na 1 Hockey League champions reported to training camp, the 28-year-old goaltender from SI. Catharines, Ont., remarked: "We put H. all together one night last April in Boston Garden." He was, of course, referring to their Stanley Cup semi-final playoff with New York Hangers. With the series tied two apiece and the Hangers leading the fifth game 2-1 after two periods, ihe Beantowners rebounded for a 3-2 victory. They won nine straight playoff games, leading to Iheir first Stanley Cup celebration in 29 years, and so far have lost one of nine starts in the 1970-71 campaign. Their two latest victims were the Rangers 6-0 Saturday with Ed Johnston in goal and Minnesota North Stars 5-0 Sunday with Clieevers in goal. The wins moved the Bruins into a :irst-place tie wih New York in the NHL's East Division, each with 15 points. In other Sunday games, the Hangers bounced back with a 5-2 victory over Chicago Black lawks, West Division leaders, Dave Keon's two goals paced Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-4 win over Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers opened a 3-I lead then hung on for a 3-2 trimming of Pittsburgh Penguins, and Los Angeles Kings defeated Buffalo Sabres 4-2. Saturday night, Montreal Can-adiens used the scoring efforts of six different players in Vancouver Canucks G-3, Ihe ilaple Leafs were frustrated by he goaltending antics of veteran Gump Worsley in a 3-1 loss o Minnesota, three first-period ;oals carried Chicago to a 5-2 vin over Pittsburgh and SL. Louis Blues recorded their fifth straight home-ice victory, 3-0, against Los Angeles.
