Dec. 7-Tbe Blues lost a hockey game last night in southern California, but they may have gained an attack. Dickie Moore and Don McKenney, a couple of old guys playing onsbad knees, showed enough in a 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings to warrant hope of improvement for the Blues, who are in last place in the West Division of the National Hockey League. Last night's defeat, combined with the Oakland Seals' victory over Philadelphia, buried the Blues five points in the cellar. The Blues will conclude their first West Coast trip of the season at Oakland Saturday night, and then return to St. Louis for a Sunday night meeting at The Arena with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Moore, who retired from the NHL three years ago because of knee injuries, played the first full game of his comeback en a line with McKenaey and youngster Tim Ecclestone. Dickie failed to score, but he skated smoothly. If he can regain a shadow of his old-time form, the ex-Montreal Canadien great can help the Blues because he can put the puck in the net Blues coach Scotty Bowman said, "If I didn't know he had bad knees and had been out a couple of years, I wouldn't have been surprised by his IIIIIIIIIIHIIIIHIIIMIIIIlniHIfllllllllllllllllllimiMHIIIIIHtlll ST.

He made some plays no one on this club has been making. I think he'll help." Moore, himself, said, "I felt pretty good and I'm not too tired now. It's a hard thing to come back after all this time. It's a challenge. I think now it'll be all right. My knees don't bother me too much. My lack of conditioning bothers me more. Actually, I'd have liked to have had more ice time. But we always want more ice time." McKenney was playing his third game after missing nine weeks because of a knee operation. He skated around King defenseman Dale Rolfe and sliped the puck past goalie Wayne Rut ledge for the Blues' first goal and came close to scoring several other times. The Blues have scored as many as three goals in a game on only six occasions, and have won five of these times. Three goals would have given them , a tie last night, but they couldn't get No.. S. - - Lack of scoring has crippled their campaign so far and Bowman has gone to a more wide-open style of play, which is bound to produce more goals against the Blues. "We have to open up," Bowman said. "It didn't help tonight, because the Kings got some wide-open opportunities on Glenn Hall and because we failed to click on our chances against Rutledge, who played tremendously well. He was the man who beat us tonight. He was not only good, he was also lucky." The hick came in the third period when Rutledge was on his knees, helpless to make a save, and Terry Crisp's shot struck him on the side of the head and bounced away. The Blues were behind 3-1 at that point and by the time they got their second goal, on a short screened shot by Fred Hucul with nine seconds to play, the issue was decided. The Kings, who moved back into first place in the West Division, got the only score in the first period.

The coaches pointed to the 6-foot-8 senior as the key man, although the clutch shooting of teammate Butch Beard and the ball-stealing antics of Jo Jo White of Kansas drew praise. Unseld and Beard each threw in 20 points. Unseld's free throw with 6 minutes 12 seconds left put Louisville ahead to stay, 45-44. "While Beard meant a lot in the stretch," said Louisville coach John Dromo, "the guy who was the real difference was Unseld. He got the key buckets and particularly the key rebound when we needed it. 1 thought our zone defense was fabulous in the clutch."

White's layup put Kansas behind, 47-46, but, as Owens put it, "Louisville had the poise and the patience to make the plays when it mattered." White, from St. Louis McKin-ley High, scored only nine points, but received tribute from Louisville. West Virginia pulled out a 65-63 home court triumph over St John's of New York when Jim Lewis tallied three points in the last 48 seconds to erase a 63--62 Redmen lead.
