SERIES TIED AT 2-2
Deadlocked Canadiens con ident
MONTREAL (AP) - The Montreal
Canadiens remained confident that
their 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins in
Boston Thursday night would not
change the eventual outcome of their
best-of-seven Stanley Cup series.
Veteran center Jean Ratelle's third
goal of the game, at 3:46 of overtime,
gave the Bruins the victory and enabled
them to tie the semifinal series 2-2.
The fifth game will be played tonight
at the Forum.
The Canadiens watched a 2-0 lead in
games melt following their Tuesday
and Thursday night losses in Boston.
"The pressure's on them now,"
Boston Coach Don Cherry said yester-
'day. "We know we can win up there in
But Cherry's sentiments were not
echoed by members of the Canadiens.
Several Canadiens' players maintained
hat now it's a best-of-three series and
they still have the home-ice advantage
for the final game and would win.
"No, I don't think the pressure is on
our shoulders," said left wing Bob
Gainley. "Of course, there's still a lot of
, pressure, but it remains up to them.to

Team captain Serge Savard was just

defending Stanley Cup champions
would regain the advantage on home
ice. He also was mildly critical of the
work of referee Wally Harris in Thur-
sday night's game.
"He's a funny guy," said Savard.

The gist of Savard's argument was

NEW YORK (AP)-Michigan State's
Kirk Gibson has decided on a baseball
career, but the St. Louis football Car-
dinals would like him to switch sports.
The brilliant wide receiver whose
trademark is catching the long pass
was chosen yesterday by the Cardinals
on the seventh round of the National
Football League college draft.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Gibson un-
doubtedly would have been a first-
round NFL pick but his baseball con-
tract with the Detroit Tigers forbids his
playing pro football.
"WE'RE NOT SURPRISED that any
major football team would want Kirk,
but we are convinced that he will honor
his contract with us," Jim Campbell,

the Tigers' president and general
manager, said early yesterday after-
noon in Detroit.
Gibson broke Gene Washington's
Michigan State records for reception,
receiving yardage and touchdown cat-
ches, finishing his career with 112
receptions for 2,347 yards and 24 touch-
When he signed with the Tigers as
their first selection in the June 1978
baseball draft, he insisted that he be
allowed to play his final season of
college football. Last fall, he caught 42
passes for 806 yards and seven touch-
downs. He also rushed seven times for
53 yards and twvo Tbs.
