PHILS TOP CUBS, 23-22:
By the Associated Press
CHICAGO-Mike Schmidt was tired but happy,
so tired that he didn't even know the final score.
For the record, Schmidt started a scoring
marathon with a three-run homer in the first inning
and ended it with a tie-breaking homer with two outs
in the 1th inning yesterday, to provide the
Philadelphia Phillies with a rousing 23-22 victory
over the Chicago Cubs.
"AFTER WE scored seven runs in the first inningI
looked over to Mick Kelleher and told him this thing
could end 20-20 because we both wear a number 20,"
Schmidt said, laughing.
"What was the final score?" said Schmidt.
"Honest, I didn't know. Unbelievable, 23-22. You say
there were 50 hits? Sure, I'm tired but it's nice to. be
on the winning end. You have to give them credit for
not giving up.

NEW YORK (AP)-The Montreal
Canadiens made first-period goals by
Steve Shutt and Doug Risebrough stand
up last night, to beat the New York
Rangers 4-1 and take a 2-1 lead in the
National Hockey League's final playoff.
Mario Tremblay and Jacques
Lemaire added third period goals to in-
sure the triumph that brought Montreal
within two victories of its 22nd Stanley
Cup since 1916. Game 4 in this best-of-
seven series is scheduled Saturday
With Montreal on a power play,
Canadiens center Lemaire collected the
puck behind the New York net. He
found Shutt in front, 15 feet to the left of
Rangers goalie John Davidson. A flick
of Shutt's wrists at 7:27 produced Mon-

Risebrough doubled the advantage at
15:44, taking a pass from Yvon Lam-

foot shot past Davidson's left leg.
The Rangers, meanwhile, were
unable to penetrate for close-range
scoring chances, and finally managed a
freak goal atf6:06 of the third period.
The triumph restored the home-ice
advantage the Canadiens had surren-

games remaining, two are on Montreal

the last three Stanley Cups-need only
