Chuck Lef- ley, Pete Mahovlich and Guy Lafleur completed the Montreal goal-scoring as the Stanley Cup champions didn't appear to miss all-star goalie Ken Dryden, who quit hockey this year to join a Toronto law firm John Stewart pulled the Flames even with the Islanders after Lome Henning gave the New Yorkers the lead in a goaltenders duel Danny Bouchard turned aside 24 shots while Gerry Desjardins was spectacular for the Islanders in blocking 28. Meanwhile, fiery Ted Garvin was fuming about his Detroit defence after Walt Tkaczuk, Pete Stemkowski, Vic Hadfield and Billy Fair- bairn had waltzed through his Wings for scores Garvin. making his coaching debut along with Rangers' Larry Popein, was particularly miffed about defenceman Rick Foley's play "and he knows it.'1 Dave Keon and Rick Kehoe each scored twice to dull the Sabres who went undefeated through their first 10 games last season. Jim McKenny, Norm Ullman and Darryl Sittler completed the Toronto scor- ing as the Leafs shelled rookie Buffalo netminder Gary Bromley for six goals in the two periods he played. Rene Robert tallied twice for the Sabres Garry Croteau's unassisted goal with less than three min- utes remaining was the winner at Oakland Joey Johnston also scored for the Seals and Lou Angotti replied for St. Louis. Seven years before the Palliser sign went up, the first barrels of PalliserReserve CanadianWhisky were laid down. Today there is a proud new name in Canadian rye whisky. Palliser. The new Palliser distillery in Alberta has brought together the skills and the talents of as fine a team of whisky- makers as Canada has ever assembled. Even though our distillery is new and modern, the product we sell is aged the full number of years. Our business began long before we opened our Lcthbridge plant. It began with our bringing together the finest aged Canadian whiskies that go to make up Palliser Reserve, a smooth and satisfying seven-year-old. Each year since then we have also laid down for aging: Palliser Colony House Palliser Black Label Palliser Golden Special Look for them at all Alberta liquor stores. See how well we have started a new- tradition of distilling ill excellence.

Toronto won the opening game of the 1973-74 Leafs' Garry Monahan (20) flying during National season 7-4. Blazers go Hollywood VANCOUVER (CP) As opening nights go. it owed more to Hollywood than to the small Canadian towns where hockey has its roots. Jimmy Pattison stole a leaf out of the movie-maker's guide Wednesday night and staged a first night for his Vancouver Blazers of the World Hockey Association as they played their first regular-season game. There were pretty girls, searchlights sweeping the cloudy skies outside the Van- couver Coliseum, dignitaries ushered out on a red carpet to centre ice. fiery torches on the ice and player introduc- tions with each team member spotlighted as he skated out in solitary splendor. Even public address an- nouncer Jerry Landra got into the act, decked out in white tie and tails and sporting a top hat Pattison passed out the goodies with a lavish hand. He gave each of the first fans a giant Blazers pennant, dispensed two cheques, one to charity and the other to the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association, and even found it in his heart to hand out a gift to Bobby Hull, whose Winnipeg Jets provided the opposition to the Blazers. Hull, a cattle rancher, re- ceived a steer in a pre-game ceremony. The multi-millionaire in- dustrialist, who purchased Philadelphia Blazers last summer and moved them to Vancouver, can well afford the largesse The politicians also got into the act. Vancouver Mayor Art Phillips and B.C. Attorney- General Alex Macdonald of- ficiated in the pre-game ceremonies, taking part in the ceremonial face-off and engaging in a puckshooting contest, with the one getting the disc into the net from centre ice receiving for his favorite charity Macdonald, wearing a kilt for the occasion, missed the net by several yards, while Phillips was right on target The crowd turnout was somewhat disappointing, with fans, about 3.000 less than capacity, turning up. "I think it's a pretty good turnout." Pattison said. "After all, we have to start somewhere As fans lined up before the game, many of them were lis- tening to the radio broadcast of the rival Vancouver Canucks.
