Wings to take a 3-2 decision and
move in front of the National
Hockey League Champions in the
Stanley Cup semi-final series.

two goals in the opening period,
went safely through a scoreless
second period and then took the
odd goal in three in the last. I
It was a comliaratively tame
affair after the games in De-

Ken Mosdell and Leo Gravelle
shot, the Canadiens into the lead
in the first period. After the score-

scored twice for the wings with
a goal by Murdo MacKay sand-
