Esposito sparkles,
t ;Ias Hawks win, 2-0

CHICAGO (A'' - Goaltender
Tony Esposito, guarding Chi-
cago's net as if it were full of
fragile glassware, shut out
Montreal 2-0 last night in the
--ypivotal fifth game of the Na-
tional Hockey League Stanley
Cup championship.
The victory gave the Black
N Hawks a 3-2 edge in the best-
of-7 series which returns to
- Montreal for Sunday's national-
ly-televised sixth game. If a
a '9s seventh is needed, it will be
played in Chicago next Tuesday

den's crease.
The puck and Hull's stick ar-
rived at the same spot almost at
the same time. Dryden, with
cat-like reflexes, sprung to pro-
tect the open corner and his
skate covered the puck a mo-
ment too late as the rubber
spurted just over the line.
Esposito protected that slim
lead until halfway through the
next period when the Hawks
scored again,

This time it was Koroll finish-
ing off the play after Stan Miki-

behind the net and fed Dennis
Hull who relayed to Koroll for

That was all the scoring there
was to be as Esposito and Dry-
den shut the door through the
last half of the game.
The Canadiens outshot Chi-
cago in every period but Espo-
sito held them off and that was
the difference.


Canonero II to be in dark;

trainer hopes
BALTIMORE (N) - Canonero
II will be in the dark briefly
tomorrow but his trainer was
confident yesterday that the
colt will see the Preakness fin-
ish line first just as he did in
the Kentucky Derby.
The oddsmakers though had
a show-me attitude about Ca-
nonero II who, because he is a
nervous colt, will be blindfold-

at 6-1 for the second race of the
Tiple Crown series while Frank
J. Caldwell's Jim French, the
Derby runner-up was made the
early favorite at 5-. Peter Kis-

the Derby, was listed at 4-1 and
Calumet Farm's Eastern Fleet,
the fourth Derby finisher, was
put at 5-1.
"He's reany to run another
big race," said trainer Juan Ar-
ias after Canonero II, owned by
Venezuelan Edgar Caibett, and
eight other 3-year-olds were en-
tered for the 96th Preakness.
This brought the field to 11.

Orr inks three
Happy-go-lucky Johnny Orr usually looks a
little worse than his normal smiling self around
this time since it is the pressure days of re-
cruiting. But Orr's grin started to return yester-
day when he announced that three top pros-
pects, C. J. Kupec, Doug Ashworth and J oh n
Kantner, would be playing their basketball for
the Michigan freshman next year.
Kupec, 6-8, 235 and capable of playing either
forward or center, led his Oaklawn, Illinois
team to the state finals and won the Most
Valuable Player honor in the tournament. He
was both Illinois All-State and All-American
in addition to gaining Academic All-American
recognition as he ranks number 21 in a class
of over 500 students. -
During the Illinois state tourney Kupec per-
sonally destroyed the fine front line of Proviso
East, the number one team in the state, and
easily won a personal duel with Owen Brown
of LaGrange, who is Lefty Dreisell's top recruit
at Maryland.
Ashworth is also a front line man, being a
6-6 forward. He played his high school ball at
Beaver Creek high in Xenia, Ohio and gained

top prep stars
All-State honors while averaging 21 points per
game. For his three year career he averaged 18
points and 14 rebounds, leading his team in both
categories every year he played. During, that
time Beaver Creek twice went to the District
Finals, once losing to Dayton Chaminade, one
of whose stars was Terry Tyler of this year's
frosh, and the other time to Dayton Dunbar.
Kantner is also from Ohio, having played his
ball at Whitmer in Toledo. A guard who is only
6-1, Kantner is a deadly shooter who averaged
36.3 to lead the tate and finished his career
as the fifth best scorer in Ohio's history. He,
like Ashworth, was All-State and also honorable
mention All-American,

Tallis said Taylor would be
welcomed by management and
the players if he is in a proper
frame of mind to play baseball.
Taylor burned his sweatshirt
after the game and left the club-
house Wednesday night.
"He is worried about his
mother, who is critically ill,"
Tallis said. "He is worried about
his hitting."
Tallis also said "He's not mad

Taylor figured in another inci-
dent in the first game of the ser-
ies with Baltimore. He charged
in to make a diving catch of a
fly ball and walked off the field
thinking he had made the third
putout. When the umpire ruled
the ball had been trapped Tay-
lor became enraged and ran to-
ward the umpire. His team-
mates rushed to protect the um-
pire and Cookie Rojas, Royals'
infielder was knocked to the
ground by Taylor in the excite-
