"If we can keep up the same effort and the same attitude, the wins wiH said the for- mer Montreal Canadian de- fenceman after Canucks' 5-3 loss Sunday to the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins. The Canucks didn't look out of place against tire power-packed Bruins, holding a 41-39 shooting edge in the match. But Laycoe's optimism was tempered with the knowledge that one game doesn't make a season. "We're still making our passes the way we would in the American or Western leagues. They're fine there, but in the Raiders Fly High Against Redskins OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) irushing and Lamonlca's three Oakland 'Raiders started the season looking like pro foot- ball's sleeping giant. They're awake now, thanks to Hewritt Dixon's thunderous run- ning and the touchdown bombs of quarterback Daryle Lamon- ica.

Dixon swept to the left, cut back and scored on the Raiders' first play of the game. Lamonica threw the first of two touchdown passes to War- ren Wells shortly after and rid- dled the Redskins' secondary for 232 yards in the game. Sonny Jurgensen of the Red' skins matched Lamonica's pass- ing yardage and threw touch- down passes to Charley Taylor and Jerry Smith. But Redskins' runners netted just 77 yards. NO FORMULA TORONTO (CP) The likeli- hood of a three-way tie for top place in the Eastern Football Conference seems remote, but the possibility is there and the Canadian Football League is without a formula to determine top place. CFL secretary Greg Fulton said Monday he will have an answer by next week. NHL the tempo is so mucl faster, the reach that much far ther and the anticipation tha much quicker."
