Rangers Fume As Green Cuts Up Rookie

NEW YORY, N.Y.— The Boston Bruins came to Madison Square Garden with a reputation for being better pugilists than puck chasers and proved their point in spades, thanks to Ted Greene. The irascible Green swung his stick in goalie Ed Giacomin’s face and Giacomin was knocked unconscious in Boston’s first visit to New York. “All of a sudden we quit,” snapped coach Red Sullivan, crumbling a cigarette pack and hurling it across the press room.

Three Wins Put Club Back In Race

TORONTO, Ont. National Hockey League teams have a new respect for the potency of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the critics who were ready to push manager-coach Punch Imlach into the background, may have to eat their words. Imlach emerged as the ‘man of the week’ in the NHL when his slumping Maple Leafs—winners of only three of their 11 games—suddenly got the message and went out and picked up three straight victories. It was enough to catapult the Leafs to within three points of first-place Montreal and undoubtedly boosted Imlach’s stock around the Toronto front office. The Leafs’ coach was slightly deflated this past week when the team’s top brass came out and announced that Imlach was to be divested of some of his many hockey duties. Next season Punch was to run…
