NEW YORK (A) - Sensational
Bobby Orr scored one goal and
assisted on another as the Bos-
ton Bruins rode the shutout goal
tending of Gerry Cheevers to a
3-0 victory over New York last
night, clinching their second
Stanley Cup in the last three
Orr, who led all scorers in the
playoffs National Hockey League
with 24 points, connected on a
power-play goal midway through
the first period and the Bruins
protected the lead until Wayne
Cashman tapped Orrs slapshot
into the net for the first of his
Stwo, third-period goals.
The opening 10 minutes of the
E game were played much like a
heavyweight championship fight
with the two teams feeling each
other out cautiously.
When Walt Tkaczuk drew a
penalty at 10:25, the Bruins sent
out their power-play unit. New
York's Bruce McGregor narrow-
ly missed clearing the puck over
the Ranger blue line as Orr
stopped him.
The Boston defenseman side-
stepped McGregor and let fly
with a shot that zipped past
Ranger goalie Gilles Villemuie.
The Bruins protected the 1-0
lead tenaciously through the
scoreless second period and even
went 48 seconds with two men
in the penalty box.
The Rangers buzzed furiously
around Cheevers but were unable
to finish off their plays.
As the third period began,
New York had two excellent op-
portunities but Cheevers gloved
Pete Stemkowski's slapshot and
moments later Vic Hadfield's
rebaund attempt rolled harm-
lessly past the corner of the
Boston net.
Ranger defenseman Dale
Rolfe went off for holding at
3:20 and with only 10 seconds
left in his penalty Orr and the
Bruins struck again.
Phil Esposito won a faceoff
from Tkaczuk in the Ranger
end, getting the puck to Orr.
Bobby took two steps in and
fired with Cashman tipping it
into the net.
As the clock ticked off the fi-
nal minutes, the Rangers tried
desperately to beat Cheevers but
instead it was the Bruins who
Cashman jammed a short
shot past Villemure with only
1:49 to play, sealing the Rang-
ers' fate.
As the final buzzer sounded
Orr and the rest of the Bruins
mobbed Cheevers and the Stan-
ley Cup was wheeled to center
As the two teams lined up for
the traditional post-series hand-
shakes, NHL President Clarence
Campbell made formal presenta-
tion of the treasured Cup to
veteran Bruins' left winger
Johnny Bucyk.

Mets trade
pitcher for
hero Nays
NEW YORK (P)-Willie Mays,
a living legend with the Giants
for two decades, returned to
New York yesterday as a mem-
ber of the Mets and immediately
disclaimed any rose as a prima
donna of special status.
"The Mets have a good team
-they're not going to keep me
out there just because I'm Willie
Mays," the 41-year-old superstar
said after being dealt to the
Mets by San Francisco for a
promising minor league pitcher
and an undisclosed sum of cash.
"I'm not going to be something
on display. I have to play ball.
If used in the right way, I think
I can do a good job for the
Mets," he added.
The Mets revealed that to
acquire the services of the color- -
ful home-runvhittinghoutfielder
the Mets gave up Charlie Wil-
liams, a 24-year-old Met rookie
right-handed pitcher last year
now with the Tidewater Interna-
tional League farm team, and a
hunk of cash. Estimates of the
m o n e y involved ranged from
$100,000 to $200,00.
