with the Islanders leading 1-0.
With Ross Lonsberry in the
penalty box, left wing Bill Bar-
ber stole the puck from Drouin
at the Philadelphia blue line
and broke down the ice alone
toward Resch. But Barber was
tripped from behind by Billy
Harris before he could reach the
goal and referee Dave Newell
whistled the play dead.
When Newell called for the
penalty shot, the sell-out crowd
rose to its feet and cheered the
Islander goaltender in antici-
pation of the rare event.
Barber circled nervously in
the neutral zone, then scooped
up the puck and started his
journey. He crossed the blue

net to meet his lone attacker.
Barber faked Resch to his knees

the Flyers from a 3-0 deficit. His
goal at 4:48 of the third period
tied the score at 3-3 and set the
stage for the overtime.

1. MSU woes-basketball
From Wire Service Reports
EAST LANSING - Michigan State University said yesterday
it will honor basketball player Jeff Tropf's request for a release
to attend the University of Toledo.
Clarence Underwood, acting MSU athletic director, added,
however, that he had "no indication or knowledge of anybody
else leaving the basketball program."
Underwood said he did not know why Tropf, a white
student who was focus of a walkout by black MSU players
last season, was dropping out.
"I said, 'Jeff, whatever your reasons are, I'm sure they're
valid. I respect your judgment and I respect you as a human
being,"' said Underwood, who is black. He is filling in for Ath-
letic Director Burt Smith, who is hospitalized with an ulcer.
Earlier it had been reported that Spartan hoopsters Mark
Talaga was also transferring-supposedly to a Texas junior col-
Yet another Soartan, Jim Dudley, is also said to be ready
to leave Michigan State and its basketball team.
A school spokesman said Tropf and Talaga indicated dis-
satisfaction with the school's basketball program and added that
Dudley was also considering leaving. The spokesman said Tropf
will attend Toledo Universitv. Dudley is reported preparing
to attend Marouette University.
MSU basketball co-ch Gus Ganakas said, "I don't think
we have any more nrohlems than any other college basket-
ball team. There's good and bad in everything."
"I'm disannointed that he's leaving because he's a good
prominent nlaver. He'll be an 'asset to any basketball program
and I wish him much success," Ganakas said.

But the naner said Rrown sounded groggy in the inter-
view from his dorm room T'uesday morning and Brown added:
"It was only one time. Tt was a spur of the moment thing."
The Michigan State football program is under investigation
by the NCAA, including its recruiting practices. Weyers is
reportedly a maior focus of the probe.
So, Michigan State coaches, players and fans can only
sit back to await the verdict of the NCAA after winding up
spring football drills yesterday afternoon.
The investigation of the Spartans' football program clouded
an otherwise brightly sunny last day of cleats and pads, although
athletic department spokesmen have insisted the probe did not
affect the conduct of practice or the attitudes of the players.
Allen returns home
PHILADELPHIA OP)-Controversial baseball star Dick Allen,
who left Philadelphia with the promise never to come back, re-
turned yesterday saying he has matured and his troubled past is
behind him.
Allen, famous for smashing baseballs as well as club-
house rules, said he wants peace.
Traded to Atlanta during the winter Allen refused to report
and had no spring training this year.
For Allen, the Phillies gave Atlanta catcher Jim Essian,
minor league outfielder Barry Bonnell and a minor league
prospect to be named later.
Philadelphia also paid Atlanta cash which Phils' owner
Ruly Carpenter said was "more than $5,000." In return, Phila-
delphia also got left-hitting catcher Johnny Oates.
