WILLIAMS: "Bobby Hull scores the first of his two goals - he actually gets two shots away and it's all over. Beats the goalkeeper and that point it was two-nothing. You just don't give Bobby Hull two shots, there's the second shot. After Hull scores again, this time unassisted as he comes down that off side it was four-nothing. Good move on to the (indistinct) goes between his legs, gets the puck and he beats the goalkeeper. Finland then scored and in the second period still, the Flyer's Reggie Leach makes it five one. Bobby Orr here assisting takes the shot, Leach puts it in. Orr, by the way, had a pretty good game. The leg appeared to be strong. It is a leg injury however, for the Flyer's captain Bobby Clark. It is believed to be not too serious though - a strained right achilles tendon, he should be back. Phil Esposito scores on a set up from Pater Mahavich (phonetic spelling). Mahavich whips it across, Esposito goes in, gets his on rebound."
