HLPlJ-i,., £i MAIL»- -^I^U i DQQ -. Stanley Cup showdowns •> M. move to new ice today Associated Press Boston, Montreal and St. Louis will try to increase their leads in the Nation Hockey League playoffs tonight as they move to their opponents' home ice. Each team holds a 2-0 edge in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs while Oakland and Los Angeles are tied at one game apiece. The weekend schedule has fill the teams playing today and tomorrow with Boston at Toronto, Montreal at New York, St. Louis at Philadelphia and Oakland at Los Angeles. All are night games except the St. Louis - Philadelphia game Sunday afternoon. Boston has had the easiest time so far. The Bruins trounced the Maple Leafs 10-0 Wednesday night and 7-0 Thursday. GOALIE Gerry Cheevers has been sparkling for the Bruins despite an opening- game brawl with Forbes Kennedy, Toronto's veteran forward who has been suspended for knocking down an official during the festivities. Cheevers, however, gives the credit elsewhere. "They deserve the credit more than I do," he said, referring to his teammates. "Our defense has been super. The wings came back fast every time. Everybody's been helping out." ANOTHER G 0 A L I E who posted an Impressive mark is St. Louis' Jacques Plante who recorded his llth career playoff shutout Thursday night over Philadelphia. He, too, success. made light of his "It wasn't too tough," he commented. "The team didn't allow any breakaways and there were only two deflections." While the Leafs and the ^^ Flyers are trying to score against Cheevers and Plante, the New York Rangers will be trying to best Montreal in a playoff for the first time in 12 years. The Canadiens' 5-2 victory Thursday night was their ninth straight against the Rangers in playoffs dating to 1957. LOS ANGELES is the only team moving to its ice with an even series. That could make things t o u g h for Oakland. The Seals evened the set by defeating the Kings 4-2 Thursday night. "We have the home ice advantage now," said Kings' Coach Red Kelly. "But we have to make use of it. "I thought we had as many good chances to score as they did Thursday night. Our guys just stopped shooting. The object of this game is to get the puck in the net." That's something the Maple Leafs will be trying to do against the Bruins. FRANK GtANELLI Fan of Mays disenchanted BOSTON'S PHIL ESPOSITO rammed in four goals and set up two others in the Bruins' Stanley Cup 10-0 opening win over Toronto. "Ha," scowled the office grouch, "that's a year's output for some of our Roadrunners!" • • • "The moral: If you're trying to build up sports — don't pull such stuff because you'll never make it." Willie Mays is true gentleman, courteous, co-operative — most of the time. But one ex-admirer complains, "Last Saturday I drove around buying Willie Mays gloves for my kids, Willie Mays books, etc. Sunday I gave up my favorite sport to take the kids to the ball park — plus some of their friends; bought tickets all around and went in because the kids wanted Mays to autograph the mentioned items. "I don't know why so much security for Mays. I'm sure it wasn't Willie Mays' idea to turn his face the other way in order to avoid autograph seekers, but that of management. And all I have to say is 'They can keep their park for the rest of the year because I'm not going back.' " Aw, c'mon back, John. You just probably encountered Willie when he was busy warming up. When he hag the time, Mays is most co-operative. But he does have to take his turn in the cage, and in the field and as a team man. The writer has another point — treatment at the Coliseum, echoing a gripe voiced by others against both Roadrunners and Suns. "When the Suns gave away basketballs, I took a load of kids and went to the $2 window, since I had to buy for everyone. I was told that all $2 tickets had been sold. After buying higher-priced tickets, I found that there were plenty of empty spots in the $2 sections. G-STRINGS. . . Headed for Annapolis — aided by some Pat Flood piloting — are all-state footballer and North High baseball ace Bill Band- hour and Cortez' football star Mike Obert . . . ChrisTown's new pitch and putt course is getting heavy play, the 437-yard layout on site of the old driving range. Holes vary from 32 to 65 yards. There've been a few bleats from the long hitters who miss the range, but they're outvoted by enthusiasts finding pleasure in the half hour it takes to negotiate the teeny course... Arizonans either are getting to be better sportsmen — or slicker violators. The Game and Fish Department report of arrests and fines shows a steady decline from 2,104 arrests and $36,336 in fines in 1965-66 to 2,081 and $35,369 for the 1966-67 span, and down to 1,736 arrests and $27,816 in fines for the '67-68 report.
