HR--Atlanta, Baker Montreal goes for dincher against Black Hawks tonight MONTREAL (AP)--"The odds," mused Pit Martin, who doesn't have to be named the designated speaker to speak his mind, "they're bad now." Actually, they're terrible considering the facts. The Montreal Canadiens, wo played "a perfect game" Sun- day in beating the Chicago Black Hawks 4-0 in the Chicago, can wrap up their 18th Stanley Cup champion- ship in the Forum to- night. ,"; Their victory in Chicago Sunday gave them a 3-1 edge in the best-of-seven series and they take on a Black Hawk team which hasn't won a playoff game in Montreal in in 13 attempts dating back to 1962. "We have to play the game said Black Hawk Coach Billy Reay who marveled at the way the Candiens played Sun- day. "Sure, our backs are again- st the wall but we'll have to wait for Tuesday night to see what happens.' 7 The wall could collapse on the Hawks if the Canadiens play anywhere near as well Tuesday night as they did Sun- day. "Very rarely does a team play a perfect hockey game," said Hawk General Manager Tommy Ivan who coached some great Detroit teams in the 1950s. "Give them credit they were perfect." Reay agreed and said, "They outskated us very badly. I don't think they had any weaknesses at all. It's not often you get everybody moving on a club the way they were moving." R a l p h Backstrom, who played on Montreal teams in Stanley Cup competition but now is a member of the Hawks' shook his head and said. "They played a perfect game.- They were exceptional on defense. If we looked bad in that game they made us look bad. They controlled the game." The Canadiens controlled it so well that Ken Dryden had to stop only 19 shots on goal in posting his first Stanley Cup shutout, which also was the first shutout the Hawks have suffered in 69 playoff games dating back to 1966. Dryden wasn't tested too of- ten. He was troubled only by two deflected shots in the sec- ond period and a 15-foot slap shot by Dennis Hull late in the third period. Still, Dryden isn't too con- fident about Montreal wrap- ping it up Tuesday night. U.S.A. whips Russians in overtime; Hospital discharges Chicago coach NEW YORK (AP) -- Ernie DiGregorio's 25 points and b a l l h a n d l i n g _ w i z a r d r y rescued the United States national team from almost certain defeat Monday night and carried the Americans to an 89-80 overtime victory over the Soviet Union. . The victory was the fourth for the United States in the six- game series with the final one W e d n e s d a y n i g h t i n Baltimore. . Despite losing four players .on fouls in the second half, the Russians managed to muscle their way to a 71-67 lead with a mere 50 seconds remaining in regulation time. Then DiGregorio, the 6-foot magician from Providence, went to work. He bombed in a 20-footer to bring the Americans back within two points. Ten seconds after that, Jim Oxley of West Point swiped a Russian pass and four seconds after that, with 36 seconds on the clock, DiGregorio shoved in a breakaway layup that tied the score. Ernie missed what would have been the game winner, a 15-footer with four seconds left in regulation time. But his deadly eye, both shooting and passing, turned the overtime into a runaway. He drove in for a layup bare- ly seconds after the overtime tipoff, Ivan Edeshko tied it up for the Russians, DiGregorio hit again with a 20-footer, Ivan Dvornii knotted it again, then G e o r g e K a r l p u t t h e Americans ahead for good at 79-77 with his only basket oi the night, a ISfooter from the left corner. Reiser receives mild concussion SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Chicago coach Pete Reiser, knocked unconscious during a Cubs-San Francisco Giants b a s e b a l l b r a w l , w a s discharged Monday from a hospital after spending a night under observation, a hospital spokesman said. "He will rest a couple of Campy inflight Oakland shortstop Campy Campenaris leaps for a throw from the outfield during Monday night's American League game with days at his home in Los Angeles before rejoining the team," said Dr. Elder C. Sailer, who treated the coach at St. Lukes Hospital. "He had a mild con- cussion," he doctor said. "He was kicked in the neck, but he's really quite all right now." Reiser was injured in a four- th inning fight Sunday sparked by an exchange of hit bat- smen. Both benches emptied, and when the field was cleared, Resier left on a stret- cher. In photos of the fray, it ap- peared that Chicago's Jack Aker hit Reiser with an errant right hook, then the coach was kicked in the neck while lying near home plate. Baltimore. Scrambling back to second base and ducking to avoid the flying Campenaris is Oriole baserunner Terry Crowley as Dick Green is seen coming in to back up the play. The action came after Baltimore's Al Bumbry singled to right. (Associated Press wirephoto) Major Sports Briefs ££. J «Y S ' "efi« take top honor American Leagu* Eait W. L. Pet. C.B.

Helias has one more meet s c h e d u l e d before their Mid-State conference on May 14. "Holy Cow!" as Harry Caray used to say. Just take a look at what happened last weekend in the Missouri Inter- collegiate Athletic Association base ball race. Lincoln split adoubleheader with Central Missouri State. Northeast took two from Southwest, 7-5 and 10-6. And Northwest dumped league leader Southeast, 3-2 and 2-1. Going into the final weekend of play, all seven league teams are tied for the lead with a .500 record. Lincoln will entertain Northeast, Southwest will go to Northwest and Southeast travels to the University of Missouri at Rolla. Lincoln has a 5-5 record, SMS, Northwest and Central all stand at 4-4, while Southeast, Northeast and UMR all figure in the picture with 3-3 logs. CMS has finished its league schedule and, if the other six teams split their games Saturday, there will be a seven-way tie for the cham- pionship. Due to the numerous rainouts, the league title will be decided on a percentage basis. This means LU can sweep its double header and still not win the title. If SMS, N o r t h w e s t Southeast or UMR takes two, they will have a higher per- centage due to fewer losses. LU will face Northeast on the Lions Club Field at West- phalia. Coach Charlie Mink says Phil Greene is the definite starter in the first game and, depending on cir- cumstances, Greene may pit- ch the second game, too. West holds confidence hell ploy in Lakers game tonight NEW YORK (AP) -- Jerry West, the Los Angeles Lakers' star guard suffering from two pulled hamstring muscles, un- derwent extensive whirlpool treatments Monday and said he is "confident" he'll play Tuesday night against the New York Knicks in the fourth game of the best-of-seven series. With West reluctantly sit- ting on the bench during the fourth quarter of Sunday's third game, the Knicks held on for an 87-83 victory and gained a 21 series lead. West, who had injured his left hamstring during New York's 99-95 second game triumph, suffered the same injury Sunday, but in the other leg. "I feel a lot better than I did Sunday," West said Monday after being treated by Dr. Robert Kerlan, the team physician. Lakers Coach Bill Sharman said it would be up to West whether the high-scoring veteran would play. "If he feels able to play, he will start," said Sharman. "Otherwise, it will be Keith Erickson." He said that the decision would probably not be made until shortly before the start of the nationally televised game. beginning at 8:30 p.m. EOT. "I am concerned about how effective Jerry will be, but we won't know for sure until Tuesday," said Sharman. Kerlan said "the injuries are not as serious as first believed and I feel West should be able to play in the next game. West, the highest scorer in NBA playoff history with 4,318 points and averaging 24.0 in the three games against the Knicks, had asked Sharman to put him back into the game Sunday when the Lakers made a late bid to overtake the .Knicks. New Blues manager wants 'hungry hockey players' .·'"- ST. LOUIS (AP)--The St. Louis Blues announced the ap- pointment Monday of Charles Catto as general manager of the National Hockey League team. Catto, 38, succeeds Sid Abel, who resigned last month to be- come general manager of the new Kansas City entry in the NHL. Catto was with the Cleveland Crusaders of the World Hockey Association prior to joining the Blues. Prior to that, he spent 11 years with the Boston Bruins as a scout, was director of player personnel for the California Golden Seals in 1971 and ser- ved as general manager of the Columbus, Ohio, Golden Seals and with the Alberta Oilers. Catto's appointment was an- nounced Monday at a news .conference by Blues President Sidney Salamon Jr. "Chuck is the type of individual I had in mind for the job," said Sidney Salamon III, the Blues' executive vice president. "I'm impressed by his knowledge of the game, his a g g r e s s i v e n e s s a n d enthusiasm. The experience and background he has com- piled will serve our or- ganization well. I'm sure he'll be an as set to us." Catto said at a news confer- ence that he has no predictions on what he will do "but I have a few aggressive ideas and I think you'll see some in- novations. The Blues have a lot of boys who like to lay the lumber on. We have the per- sonnel to play aggressive hockey." Catto said he wants "hungry hockey players" for his team. Asked if there were any hungry players left in the minors, he replied: "Well, you won't see crewcuts again, but there are still young boys who want to play hockey nowhere but in the NHL." Catto said his first order of business will be to prepare for the draft. CARDINALS VS. Giants Tuesday 9:45 P.M.

Did you know that this amazing feat once actually happened in a professional game? . . . A man named Jay Clarke, who later went to the majors, was playing for Corsicana in the Texas Association on July 14, 1902, when he hit eight homers in one 9-inning game . . . Nobody else has ever come close to that in a n y o t h e r g a m e p r o f e s s i o n a l b a s e b history. Did you know there was a big league baseball team that played 42 consecutive years without winning a pennant! . . . It was the St. Louis Browns who once played in the American League ... They went from 1902 through 1943 without finishing first in all that time . . . They won their only pennant in 1944. Here's a tough question for you . . . .As you know, golf is one of the few sports in which the low score, and not the high score, wins . ..
