R EP!J ' I • Blues^lead series, 2-0 Associated Press ST. LOUIS — Husky Gary Sabourin scored one goal and assisted on two others as the St. Louis Blues scored three power-play goals while bombing the Philadelphia Flyers, 5-Q, Thursday night in a riotous National Hockey League playoff game. The victory gave the Blues a 2-0 edge in the best-of-7 West Division semifinal series. The teams resume the series tonight in Philadelphia. JACQUES PLANTE engineered the shutout with flawless goaltending. Both teams cleared their benches in the second period when a stick-and fist- waving incident between Noel Picard of the Blues and Ed Van Impe of the Flyers threatened to turn into a general donnybrook. Gloves, sticks and one official hit the ice during the shoving match, but there was no serious fighting. BOSTON — Veteran Johnny Bucyk triggered a typical Boston scoring outburst with two first period goals and goalie Gerry Cheevers fashioned his second straight shutout Thursday night as the Bruins crushed the Toronto Maple Leafs, 7-0, and gained a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven National Hockey League playoff series. The Bruins, who set an NHL scoring record with 303 goals during the regular season, relaxed their muscles and stuck to finesse hockey for the most part in overpowering the out-classed Leafs. UNLIKE THE series opener, when 132 minutes in penalties were whistled in a 10-0 Bruins victory, there was just one brawl, a second period slugfest between Boston's Don Awrey and Toronto's Larry Mickey. Awrey had a slight edge, but picked up a three-stitch gash under an eye for his trouble. MONTREAL — The Montreal Cana- diens erupted for three goals in 8M> minutes of the second period and continued their playoff domination of New York Thursday night, beating the Rangers, 5-2, and taking a 2-0 lead in the National Hockey League East Division semifinal series. The best-of-7 set shifts to New York for the next two games, tonight and Sunday night. THE RANGERS, who lost their ninth consecutive playoff game to Montreal dating back to 1957, carried the play to the Canadiens from the outset and held a 2-1 lead before the second-period explosion. Bobby Rousseau tied the score 2-2 at 4:28 with a partly screened 30-foot backhander that slid past Ranger goalie Ed Giacomin. • • • OAKLAND - The Oakland Seals defeated the Los Angeles Kings, 4-2, here Thursday night to square their National Hockey League playoff series at one victory apiece.

The same teams meet again tonight here in the third game of the set. Nicholson stole the puck in front of the Portland net to score unassisted after 4:30 had been played in the opening period. At 9:05, Willie O'Ree made it 2-0 for the Gulls. Bruce Carmichael lit the red light with only 1:20 gone in the second period to give the Gulls what appeared to be a comfortable lead.

Rookies load opening lineups Associated Press NEW YORK - Two dozen rookies likely will be in the opening day lineups — 15 in the National League and nine in the American League — when the baseball season gets under way with a series of openers Monday and Tuesday. • The biggest surprise is that the Los Angeles Dodgers will have three rookies when they open at Cincinnati Monday, as many as two of the four expansion clubs — San Diego in the National League and Kansas City in the American League. No other club "in either league is planning on using more than two rookies to Start with while four National League teams and either seven or eight American League teams will field completely veteran units. THE LEFT SIDE of the Dodger infield will be held down by rookies, with Bill Su- dakis at third base and Ted Sizemore at shortstop, while Bill Russell is expected to replace the injured Willie Davis in the reshuffled Los Angeles outfield. Sudakis hit .276 after coming up at the end of the season but still qualifies as a rookie since he went to bat just 87 times. Sizemore hit at a .314 clip with Spokane last season while Russell hit .280 at Bakersfield. PRESTON GOMEZ, the San Diego manager, also lists two rookie infielders, Rafael Robles at shortstop and either Bill Davis or Nate Colbert at first base, while another first-year man, Clarence Gaston holds down centerfield. Robles hit .259 at Fresno last season, Davis .265 at Portland, Colbert .264 at Oklahoma City and Gaston .279 at Shreveport. Braves hope to start bats humming this year Associated Press WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. When the Atlanta Braves traded Joe Torre to St. Louis they acquired Orlando Cepeda-and his tape-recorder. That will put music in the clubhouse. Now if they can get some of their bats out on the field it may be even more significant. "Nobody hit last year," manager Lum Harris pointed out as he discussed the reason why the Braves were only ' • a .500 club. "It was the hitting. Our pitchers set a . Braves' record for the lowest earned run average." IF THE BATS begin to . hum, then, Harris sees no . .reason why the Braves can't move up to battle for the pennant in the National League's Western Division against Cin, -cinnati, Houston, Los Angeles, San Diego and San '. Francisco. ' •. • ' The two biggest additions Bulletin Northern Arizona romped to a 7-3 victory over LaVerne College yesterday. Dave Munoz' two-run single broke a ' 3-3 tie in the seventh inning. Prep track as far as Harris is concerned are Cepeda and Rico Carty, the lifetime .300 hitter who missed the entire 1968 season while recuperating from tuberculosis. Cepeda, whose good spirits and hot music was one of the prime reasons for the Braves' light-hearted clubhouse the last couple of years, had an undistinguished season after winning the Most Valuable Player award in 1967. HE HIT ONLY .248 with 16 homers and 73 runs batted in. But more is expected of him. There's no doubt the Braves will get more from Carty, who did not play one game last season. Carty's return to form would give the Braves a solid .300 hitting outfield with Hank Aaron and Felipe Alou holding the other two spots. Only Aaron and Alou held up last season, with such proven stars as Clete Boyer, third baseman, shortstop Sonny Jackson and Torre having the difficult years Harris talks about. Boyer hit .227, Jackson .226 and Torre, although hitting .271 smacked only 10 homers. CEPEDA WILL hold down the first base job. Felix Mil- Ian will be at second, Boyer at third and either Jackson or promising Gil Garrido at shortstop. Kansas City's opening day lineup lists Pat Kelly, who hit .306 at Denver last season, in center field; Mike Fiore, .271 at Rochester, at first base, and Ellie Rodriguez, .291 at Syracuse, at behind the plate. WHILE THE Royals lead the AL with three rookies, Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Oakland, Seattle and Washington will go with all veteran lineups while Minnesota still is up in the air over whether to give Charlie Manuel the opening day spot in left field. In the NL only four teams do not show rookies in their starting lineups — Cincinnati, Houston, San Francisco and St. Louis. Here is the complete list of rookies expected to start in their teams' first games. National League Atlanta—Catcher Bob Didier. Chicago—Center fielder Don Young. Los Angeles—Third baseman Bill Sudakis, shortstop Ted Sizemore, outfielder Bill Russell. Montreal^-Third baseman Coco Laboy, center fielder Don Hahn. New York—Third baseman Amos Otis, outfielder Rod Caspar. Philadelphia — Short stop Don Money, outfielder Larry Hisle. Pittsburgh—Third baseman Richie Hebner. San Diego—Shortstop Rafael Robles, center fielder Clarence Gaston, either of two first basemen, Bill Davis or Nate Colbert. American League California—First baseman Jim Spencer. Chicago—Left fielder Carlos May, first baseman Gail Hopkins. Kansas City—First baseman Mike Fiore, catcher Ellie Rodriguez, center fielder Pat Kelly. Minnesota—Possibly left fielder Charlie Manuel. New York—Third baseman Boby Murcer, center fielder Jerry Kenney. O*s pilot optimistic Ex-hero Palmer looks good again Associated Press MIAMI—More than two years ago when Jim Palmer was nine days short of his 21st birthday he stood on the mound at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium and beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 6-0, becoming the youngest pitcher in World Series history to pitch a shutout. In 1967, Palmer was in the minors. NOW, AFTER two seasons at points such as Elmira, An d he has come around Rochester, Miami and San- well enough during spring turce, Palmer is throwing training to satisfy manager well again — and could turn Earl Weaver, out to be the key that opens "PALMER REALLY looks the door to the American like he's on the way back," Weaver said. "And I'm expecting big things from him." A return to form by the big right-hander who had a 15-10 record in 1966 would give the Orioles a deep pitching staff that also includes 22-game winner Dave McNally, Tom "No-Hit" Phoebus, 18-game winner Jim Hardin and trade acquisition Mike Cuellar. The Orioles, who will be in the Eastern Division with pennant-winning Detroit, finished 12 games behind the Tigers last year. But, as Weav« er points out, they trailed Detroit by only IMs games after he succeeded Hank Bauer as manager on July 11. Weaver looks for Palmer's return and stronger performances from outfielders Frank Robinson and Paul Blair to support the pitching staff in the manner to which they have become accustomed with the hard-hitting Orioles. 54 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., April 5, 1989 SALE SALE SAL Baseball odds LAS VEGAS, Nev.
