Esposito leading ivay Bruins set hot pace MONTREAL the National Hockey League moves into the second quarter of its 1970-71 schedule this week, Bos- ton Bruins threaten to surpass many existing scoring records. The Bruins' offence, led by centre Phil Esposito, has scored goals in 18 games. If that pace were maintained through the remainder of the season, it would produce a record 344 goals. Boston set the current record in with 303 goals and after 18 games that season had scored 60 goals. Esposito, who holds the indi- vidual scoring record of 126 points for a season, a mark he set in 1968-69, leads the current individual scoring race with 34 points on 14 goals and 20 as- sists. His goals and assists are the most by any player so far this season. Projecting Esposito's pace over the remainder of this sea- son, he could finish with 61 record; 86 short of the record; and 147 a record. THREATEN LINE RECORD Esposito and his linemalcs, right winger Ken Hodge and leti winger Wayne Cashman, are also on a record-setting course for points and goals by a line. If the trio continues its cur- rent trend, it will finish the 78- game schedule with 125 goals and 337 points. Esposito, Hodge and now-re- tired Ron Murphy hold the record for points by a in the 1968-69 season. The De- troit Red Wings' line of Gordic Howe, Frank Mahovlich and Alex Delvecchlo set tho season mark of 114 goals by a line dur- ing the same schedule. Despite all the power gener- ated by the Bruins, they can not seem to pull away from the East Division's other top teams. Boston and New York Hangers remain tied for first place with 26 points each, three more than third-place Montreal Canadiens. A similar three-point Canadians drop third CARTAGENA, Colombia (CP) Canada lost its third consecu- tive game in the world amateur baseball championships, bowing 3-1 Monday night to the Nether- lands Antilles. The Canadian senior team looked much better than in one-sided losses to Cuba and Nicaragua, and scored its first, run of the tournament to hold a brief lead. The run came in the sixth In- ning when Doug Hill of Victoria singled home Roy Rowley of Moose Jaw, Bask. Rowley had reached second when the An- tilles centre fielder let his fly ball drop. The Antilles team, which now has a 2-3 win loss record, wrapped up the game in the eighth when pinch-hitter Wilfred Wilsoe hit a three run triple off reliever Glennis Scolt of Bran- don, Man. The losing Imrlcr was Lcs Li- sowski of Winnipeg, who walked (he first batter in the eigluh and then gave tip a single. lead is held by Chicago Black Hawks in the West Division over runner-up St. Louis Blues. The Blues have managed to stay right behind the Hawks be- cause of strong defensive play. St. Louis has the second-low- est goal output of the 14 NHL teams, but the Blues' 32 goals against in 18 games is the best defensive record in the league. HULL SCORES THREE Chicago's Bobby Hull became the fourth player this season to score three goals in a game when he turned in his 25th such performance last Sunday against California Golden Seals. It was the first tliree-goal game for Hull sines Feb. 20, 1969, but it moved him to within one of the record 26 three-or-more-goal games by Maurice (Rocket) Richard, former Montreal great. The goals helped lift Hull into a third-place tie with Delvecchio and Boston's Bobby Orr in the scoring race, each with 24 points, two fewer than Boston's Hodge and 10 fewer than Espos- ito. Tony Esposito of Chicago leads in shutouts with three, but Ernie Wakely and Glenn Hall of the Blues still have the best gpallending record with a com- bined goals-against average of 1.77. DEiW HEARING WASHINGTON (AP) The United States Supreme Court declined Monday to hear an at- tack on major-league baseball's pension system by Allie Rey- nolds, one-time Cleveland In- dian and New York Yankee pitcher. "Who do you Have to go to and get permission if not from a guy like Hall won- dered out loud. "The guy is the first vice president of the AHA." Hall continued to let off steam as he said why, "What I can't understand is he gave us permission to use George and then he denies it." Kryczka had told the officials of the Sugar Kings to write the league a letter and there would be no problems. The letter was writ- ten and the Kings used George in good faith. "It's pretty bad when you can't believe the guy who is tunning the whole add- ed the manager. :'What kind of operation are they One would al- most think they are out to get us." Hall was noticeably dis- turbed. "Where is the he asked. What about the case of Lanny McDonald and Alex Kogler? They have both signed a contract with us but can play in the Western Canada.League without any trouble. We get permission from the top to use a player and what Hall indeed was right in ask- ing, "Where's the Hall still hasn't received of- ficial word from the league with regards to the forfeiting of the two points. The Kings play Red Deer twice on the week- end. Do they or do they not use George?
