HOCKEY—NHL: CHICAGO held its two-point edge over Detroit, both clubs winning twice, tying once. The Red Wings lost one as well, 2-1 to the Canadiens. Detroit Goalie Dennis Riggin, subbing for the injured Terry Sawchuk, was hurt himself and carried off the ice in a game against the Maple Leafs. Sawchuk then entered the nets and preserved a 4-3 win. Third-place Toronto was 1-1-1 and Montreal lost two of three. Struggling New York was tied twice 3-3, then lost to last-place Boston 4-2, giving the Bruins their third triumph in 25 games.
