Bob DilUibough tapped in his; own rebound to break up a scoreless struggle at Cleveland with a power play goal at of the second period. Ron Bu- chanan gave Cleveland an in- surance goal with six minutes remaining in the game, beating Serge Auhry from a scramble in front of the goal.

The Flames, who along with New York Islanders represent league which has expanded from a six-team setup to a two- division IG-tcam league in five years, held Chicago scoreless in the first period. But defenceman Bill White, another of the Team Canada crew that played 11 inter- national against the to the NHL opener last Saturday, broke the drought against Atlanta goalie Phil Myre early in the second period, Mikita, who assisted on the first goal, made it 2-0 before [he period ended and average and went 32 straight National Hockey League games without a shutout. The Bruins have taken action against Cheevers and Derek Sanderson of the WHA's Phila- delphia Blazers to retain their g" "I services. The cases are still be- fore the courts.

It was Cournoyerrs second goal of the game. Veteran centre Norm Ullman vehemently supported his I coach's appraisal of referee D a ve Newel Ps decision, al- though he did not suggest his remarks be passed on to Camp- bell, the NHL president. 'SU.U-TED "lie (Newell1) shafted us wice in this said Ull- man, whose goal late in the second period had given To- ronto a 2-1 lead. Ullman had particular reason o be incensed because Newell disallowed what appeared to be ris second goal, possibly the clincher, at of the third od. Newell ruled that Ull- man had his stick above his shoulders when he batted the k into the net past goalie Ken Dryden. Ullman had tipped in B shot from defenceman Bob Baun on the point. "No way was my stick above my Ullman in- sisted. "When the referee looked at me I was raising my two button styling, with flair pants. Elegantly correct for evening wear anywhere.

Rick Martin, who earned rookie of the year honors last season with a record 44 goals, got the first two of his soph- omore year in Buffalo's easy time with the Kings, who had upset Boston 4-2 in their last outing, Gil Perreaull, the Buffalo centre who engineered the Sa- bres' earlier win, collected a goal aod three assists. The Red Wings hit for three third-period goals to hand the defending Stanley Cup cham- pion Bruins second suc- cessive loss. The torrid scoring pace followed a wild upheaval in the second period in which players from both teams were heavily penalized. Phil Esposilo of the Bruins was nailed with a double major late in the period, and it was while he was off Guy Charron scored twice to put tfie Wings i ahead 3-2. Rill Collins adtlet I another before Ken Hodgi closed out the scoring for Bos ton with two seconds remaining in the game.

Jim Harrison, Ron Walters ,nd Ed Joyal also hit for the Ubertans in the fast but loosely >layed game.

One of the oddities of hockey cropped up in the Alberta-Ot- awa game when Chris Meloff of the Nationals attempted to B irk ley by picking up the goaltender's stick which had been knocked into the corner. The 0tiawa forward loaned Binkley his own stick, skated over and picked up the goalies' stick and started back towards the net. Unfortunately he decided en route to try to pass with the stick and was immediately tagged with minor penalty by re feree Ron Ego for pla yi n g with a stick larger than the al- lowable size.
