Montreal Canadiens coach Scotty Bowman approached goaltender Wayne Thomas with the word that he would be starting for Montreal in Sun- day's National Hockey League game against New York Rangers It came as a bit of a surprise for the sophomore goaltendei who had been a spectator for Montreal's first four games while rookie Michel Larocque guarded the net And Thomas had plenty of work in his 1973-74 debut as the Rangers hurled 41 shots at him during the contest The 26-vearold Ottawa native stopped all but two of them helping Montreal to a 3-2 win over New York in one of five games Elsewhere Gilbert Perreault scored at 10 03 of the third period to give Buf- falo Sabres a 4-3 win over Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins hammered Pittsburgh Penguins 8-2 Detroit Red Wings clubbed California Golden Seals 11-2 and New York Islanders and Chicago Black Hawks battled to a 3-3 tie The one goal loss for the Rangers was their second in as many nights to a Canadian- based club Saturday

Stars played to a 4-4 tie, Pittsburgh upended California 5-3 and Los Angeles Kings blanked Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 in a game which saw referee Llovd Gilmour assess 132 minutes in penalties One of Gilmour's counter- parts Art Skov engaged in a shouting match with Bowman after the Montreal-Rangers game Bowman was incensed Mets not ashamed losing OAKLAND (AP) For the Cinderella New York Mets, midnight came at 7 12 p m EDT Sunday but they never stopped believing "I was believing up until the last out, said Mets' reliever Tug McGraw who inspired New York the team and the city with the rallying cry of "You Gotta Believe' 'It s just a bummer to lose, said McGraw after the Mets ended their season one victory short by losing 5-2 to Oakland Asm the seventh game of the 1973 World Series The loss snapped a miraculous string of events for the Mets, who were in last place in August before stampeding through September with 20 victories in 28 games and capturing the National League East flag, then coming on to win the pen- nant over Cincinnati Reds 'It's been a long year and we came a long added McGraw in the morgue-like Mets dressing room where the lo'jdcst noises were Hie snap of beer-can tops "We just didn't take it all But I don't think everything is wasted 'I don't think we have anything to be ashamed said Willie Mays, who ended his active baseball career sitting on the bench "No, I'm not disappointed I didn't play I don't think I'm very good at pinch-hitting "These kids developed a lot of added Mays whose 22-year major league career as a superstar ended in the Bay area, site of so many of his greatest games when he played for San Fran- cisco Giants Rusty Staub, who played courageously in all seven games despite a painfully- damaged right shoulder, still didn't want to admit to the pain when it was all over "We're down now because we lost But we got to the seventh game of the World Series When people realize how far we had to travel to get here, they'll be proud I'm proud I think I'm gonna be real proud in what the team did and what I said Staub, who was forced to adiust his power-hitting swing for a shorter chop to alleviate some of the pain, yet finished the series with 11 hits, high for both teams "I'll have to talk to the big guy upstairs this winter and let him know how much I appreciated what he let me do He had to be in my cor- ner at the refeiee lor calling a five-minute high sticking ma- jor on Jim Roberts for high sticking Vic Hadfield at 11 11 of the third period Roberts was so upset that he received a game miscon- duct and team-mate Frank Mahovlich was tagged with a misconduct when he berated Skov But that was the only sore point with Bowman as the Ca- nadiens played their finest game of the season to bring their record to 3-2 leaving them in fifth place in the NHL s East, one point behind New York and two behind Boston Buffalo and Toronto, who are jammed in a first- place tie Thomas was particularly sharp during the Rangers' power plav as he was in the second period when he kicked out 18 New York shots Speedy Yvan Couinoyer scored once in the first period and once in the second to give Montreal a 2-0 lead, only

from a Peter Lonmer cross in the 33rd min- ute was the highlight of a game which flowed from end to end At Derby there were demonstrations by the crowd in support of Clough The former manager who resign- ed after a much-publicized row with the club directors stood and waved to his fans He left the stadium moments after the start and missed seeing Kevin Hector s forth minute goal which put Derby on the road to their win over Leicester The visitors tied in the 58th minute through Frank Worth- ington four minutes before John McGovern got Derby s winner Best who a year ago said he would
