We talked about that today." The Capitals, last In the Norris Division, -spotted the Barons, cellar-dwellers in the Adams Division, a 1-0 first-period, lead on Dennis Maruk's 29th goal of the season.

But Charron pulled Washington even at 13:43 of the second period and Robert Picard put -the Capitals in front less than two minutes later. The visitors put the game away with third-period goals from Rick Green and Charron. By Ross Hopkins The Canadian Press To say Washington Capitals and Cleveland Barons were hungry for victory Friday night would be an understatement. The Capitals, with only nine wins fewest in the National Hockey League are struggling to avoid the embarrassment of slipping to the bottom of the over-all standings, while the Barons still entertain thoughts of gaining a wild-card playoff berth. Whatever the incentive, the Capitals got a two-goal performance from Guy Charron to down the Barons 4-1 and register Charron, Washington's top scorer with 24 goals and 21 assists, admitted it's tough to keep your head above water playing for a losing, team, but added: "As a professional it's our Job.' Sometimes it's tough, but other people have to go to an office every day and. that's not always easy, either." Cleveland coach Jack Evans was disappointed that his his club failed to gain ground on Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers in the battle for a wild-card berth. At Denver, Ron An-druffs goal with less than two minutes to go in the second period held up. LOU NANNE Stars new boss string," McVie added. "Then our club got respectable for about 10 only their 10th win of the season. The victory was Washington's first in eight games and it extended Cleveland's winless string to four including three consecutive losses. The Capitals now have 31 points, two more than St. Louis Blues and four better than Minnesota North Stars, futility leaders with a ll-35-5mark. The North Stars made a move Friday they hope will turn their season around, naming Lou Nanne to the joint position of coach and general , manager, replacing Andre Beaulieu and Jack Gordon, respectively. In the only other contest Friday night, Colorado be worked out." The Canadian Football League's executive committee meets in Toronto next week to discuss and possibly ratify Ballard's purchase of the team from Michael DeGroote.

I said I wanted Edwards and I'll have to take a serious look Rockies, another strug-, gling club, edged Atlanta Flames 3-2. Washington coach Tom McVie admitted after the game that his club is far from - a league powerhouse, but not as anemic as some would care to believe. "Our hockey team is bad, but not as bad as you read in the papers," he said. "We have been playing pretty well and we haven't been winning anything." However, all that changed Friday as the Capitals arrived in Richfield, Ohio. "The last time we were in here, we won (5-3) and ended a 20-game winless at this." The Ticat running back said he is worth every penny and more than Anthony Davis, who had a five-year, $1 million contract with Toronto Argonauts. Davis, after a disappointing first season, left the CFL after buying out the remainder of his contract. "I don't have too many years left to make it," Edwards said. "I have no background or education to fall back on. I have a lot Edwards' $1 million bid not unreasonable' known for his past deeds in high school and college, but outside of the city, he, is unknown. "It's a matter of self-pride," Edwards said. "I'm known in Oklahoma City but I'm not known in Kansas City, New York or anywhere else. A $1 million contract makes a difference. Wi,th a $1 million contract, you're known." Edwards is in the option year of his contract and if no agreement is reached, he will be paid $27,000 next HAMILTON (CP) Running back Jimmy Edwards wants $1 million over five years from Hamilton Tigcr-Cats and prospective new team owner Harold Ballard said the demand may not be unreasonable.
