Gary Winnipeg had a horrendous sea 30 Points behind after finishing in the Nils top four a year the trading of defence Man Dave Babych Hurt the team More than general manager John Ferguson Ferguson is behind the Bench after ditching head coach Barry Long late in the the jets do have a Good Power play with Captain Dale Hawer Chuk always dangerous on Howe Winnipeg is weak behind the Elueline and this is where the flames should prediction Calgary in Norris division Chicago Toronto this series has All the possibilities of an upset because the Blackhawk lost six of eight games to the fourth place Maple Leafs in league new crop of Bruins ignores pitiful record against habs from the Canadian press the Days leading up to the nation Al hockey league not unlike the super bowl and College basketballs final four Are filled with statistical trivia and fearless a Little known item of interest to surface in recent Days with respect to the Bosto Montreal Adams Divi Sion semifinal is the fact the Bruins Haven beaten the canadians in a playoff of any kind since what does that mean to a member of the Bruins in 1986 you Guys keep reminding Boston goalie Pat obtained 14 from Washington

defence Man Mike were feeling better about our game than they Are about the canadians do have some potent weapons in High scoring Forward Mats Naslund and Veteran defence Man Larry but Goring Doest plan to have one player Shadow were certainly going to be aware of but i dont think you can have anybody standing beside him All Goring the Montreal canadians have other Guys who can he if we can hold them Naslund and Robinson Point i think you can be pretty sure Well win the for that to Bostons goal tending will have to be right its a Goring talked with Riggin and Rookie Bill Ranford on the ice during practice yesterday and told them who would Start Riggin but no announcement was made because Goring Doest want to give the canadians Advance i dont want to give anybody any he Why should i a
