Danadiens, St. Louis. Triumph in Pro Playoff Games1
Montreal Tops Toronto, 4-2
In Opening Playoff Game
By The Associated Press
The Montreal Canadiens scored
three times in the first period and
once in the finale last night to
defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs
4-2 and take a 1-0 lead in the
Stanley Cup playoffs.
Henri Richard, the younger of
the Canadiens' high-scoring broth-
er act, assisted on the first three
goals and got the last one.
The first period was an explos-
ive affair with nine of the 17
minor penalties called and with
the Canadiens dominating the
scoring, although outshot 14-12.
Time and again they barged, in on,
Toronto goalie Jphnie Bower and
missed at least a half a dozen
other big opportunities.
Leaf Defense Stiffens
The Leaf defense stiffened in
the second period and the Mon-
treal attack tapered off. The two
Toronto goals fired up the Leafs
but they were balked the rest of
the way by Montreal's steady

Moore Starts Scoring
Dickie Moore sent the Canad-
lens off in front in pursuit of their
fifth straight Cup championship
with a goal at 2:27 of the first
period. At 8:55 Doug Harvey made
it 2-0. Jean Beliveau boosted the
lead to 3-0 at 11:36 and it looked
as if Montreal was going to have
Bower, however, staved off the
Canadiens the remainder of the
period. Then in the second ses-
sion the Leafs began to dent the
Montreal defensive armor.
Baun reduced the Montreal lead
to 3-1 at 5:23 with a screened 50-
footer and Bert Olmstead drilled
home another Leaf goal at 17:35.
But from there on, Plante was
invinvible. He got a little workipg
room early in the final period
when Henri Richard scored on an
angle shot at 1:30.

Henri "Pocket Rocket" Richard (left) dazzled the Maple Leafs as
he led the Canadiens to a 4-2 victory in the first game of the
Stanley Cup playoffs. The younger brother of famed Maurice had
three assists in the deciding first period and picked up a goal in
the finale. Bob Pettit (right), regular season scoring and re-
bounding leader of the Hawks, turned in another brilliant
performance to help defeat the Celtics. He pulled down numerous
rebounds and chipped in 25 points of the Hawks' total.
