Hem Ellis o( Toronto Maple Leafs and Yvan Cournoyer ol Montreal Canadlens were two plher speedsters who [ound the increased elbow room to Iheb1 liking. But goalkeeper Ed Johnston of Boston by coach Harry Sinden to play one of the two weekend games against the Swedish national reservations. "There is three feet more space than we're used to be- hind the Johnston said. "And there's seven feet less distance from Ihe blue line to the coal line. An attacking for- ward tokes one stride aoross that blue line and he's in a prime position for a shot on Iho el." The rink here, similar to the one hi Moscow whore Ihe Team Canada-Russia series resumrcs later this month, is 15 feel wider than Novth American rinks. unil'S KNEE STILL SORE One player who ordinarily might benefit from the in- creased srea is Bobby Orr, hut Ihfc Boston rearguard is nirrsing a sore left knee. Orr worked out with the team during mominR drills, giving the knee the lirst real test it has had since post-season gery. He sat with a towel full ol crushed ice, salvaged from a pop cooler, wrapped around the knee. "I'm real happy with the way the leg is he said. "It has come along real well in the lost week. There's still some pain, though. It's not ready yet." Sinden said he likely, would dress Orr for the games against Sweden, but said it wa? up lo the player whether he played. A more immediate problem to Sinden was Ihe largo' ice sur- face. "It means a hell of an adjust- ment for everyone. We won't be able lo carry the puck so much. But then, they won't be able lo jam up in front of our net so much. "Our defencemen will have lo be very careful not to commit themselves too early. I'd hale to be a defenceman and make a run at a guy and miss him. With all lhat space, I'd never get back in the play." STAR ALMOST PAUNCHY Sinden sold On- was "out of and Lhe Boston star ap- peared jowly and almost paunchy. "I'll play him in the intra- squad game tomorrow after- noon and hope to have him in Ihs lineup this weekend. But he's very doubtful as a starter against the Russians." Sinden and assistant coach John Ferguson worked half the learn hi Ihe morniiig with such stars as Orr, Tony Esposifo and Ken Dryden on the ice. In the afternoon, the other crew, with Ron Ellis, Phil Esposito, Gil Perreault and others, went (hroush. drills. Some and Tony Esposito were in both workouts. Sinden worked the team mostly on rink-long rushes, mainly two-man passing drills, and put the forwards one-on- one against the tefencemen. Pete Mahovlich o( Montreal Canadlens, whose superstar brother Frank missed the trip here with a toieo problem, said tliat "the long plane trip and the change in time has really knocked it out of us." Sinden scowled at the wide rink and multcred, "Look at all that space." "It makes It difficult to play 'crowd 'em1 hockey." Bobrov feels it won't be same MOSCOW (AP) Avoiding confident predictions and hed- ging his bets, Lhc head coach of Ihe Soviet national hockey team said Thursday Team Canada will bo "another team" when it laces the Russians in Moscow. Coach Vsevolod Bobrov guided liis squad to a surpris- ing 2-1-1 win-tie-loss recovd against Canada's top profes- sionals in the Canadian half of an eight-game series. But he told Soviet newspapers the Ca- nadians had been "com- placent" and out of shape. "I Ihink that we will have lo meet in Moscow another tea Bobrov said. "The matches will be very difficult."

Bobrov cautioned that Soviet oaches, players and fans iculd not "flatter" themselves bout the fine Russian showing Canada. He said that since turning to Moscow he had eard fans say the Canadians "disappointing" and 'aren't so strong." "f don't agree with Jobrov saill. "Of course, the Canadians are not gods, as many of our ans thought. But they are un- ciibledly first-class players." The Canadian fans were 'cool" at first and "looked down on our Eobrov in a separate interview in ho Communist youth paper Komsomolskaya Pravda. But aller the first game, he added, 'the Canadians realized that not pupils, but strong sports- men just like them, had coma to play." Bobrov praised the Canadian jrcnd of pro hockey, calling it 'much rougher, fasler and more accurate than the ama- teur variely." But he said there arc also shortcomings. "The Canadian professionals seldom launch fast counter-at- ho said. "They are slow in attack and this allows the defencemen to get hack and (okc up defensive posi- tions." He also said the Canadian goalies are "not reliable enough." "They get confused when the puck is being played close lo their Bobrov said.
