MONTREAL - Craig Ramsay
touched off a three-goal out-
burst in the first period that
powered Buffalo past the Mon-
treal Canadiens 4-3 and sent
the Sabres into the National
Hockey League Stanley Cup
The Sabres, who won their
best-of-seven semifinal series
four games to two, will face the
winner of the Philadelphia-New
York series.
The Sabres jumpedIto a 3-1
lead in ehe first period and
scored again in the second
frame before withstanding a
two-goal rally by the Cana-
diens in the last period.
Ramsay's unassisted goal, his
fifth of the playoffs, came with

just 2:05 elapsed and was fol-
lowed by Rick Martin's fifth
playoff goal at 8:51.
Peter Mahovlich pulled Mon-
treal to within one goal at 9:48,
but Peter McNab scored for the
Sabres at 17:53 to send the Sa-
bres into the second period with
a two-goal bulge.
Center Jim Lorentz gave Buf-
falo a 4-1 margin midway
through the second period.
Guy Lafleur started Mon-
treal's third-period rally at
8:05 when he scored his 12th
goal of the playoffs, but the
Canadiens could not score
again until just 1:015 was left
when Mahovlich put in his
second goal of the contest, his
sixth of the playoffs.

It will be the first time the
Sabres have made the Stanley
Cup final since joining the
league in the 1970-71 season.
Montreal outshot Buffalo 32-

the Philadelphia Flyers 5-1 last
night to hang on in the Stanley
Cup semifinal playoffs.
The Islanders, bent on re-
peating their quarter-final round
comeback from a 3-0 deficit,
slashed the Flyers' advantage
in this best-of-seven-game series
to 3-2.
The series now returns to
the Islanders' Nassau Coli-

day. A seventh game, if nec-

The Flyers didn't get a shot

Avery Brundage dies
dage, the crusty American millionaire who for 20 years was the
controversial president of the International Olympic Committee,
died last night in this Bavarian ski resort. He was 87.
Friends in Santa Barbara, Calif., where Brundage lived
part time for 31 years, said he suffered a heart attack. Of-
ficials at the district hospital where Brundage died did not
give the cause of death.
Brundage stepped down as head of the IOC in 1972 after the
Summer Olympic Games at Munich, Germany. But he re-
mained as honorary president of the self-perpetuating com-
mittee which sets the rules and regulations for the quadrennial
athletic competition among nations.
When he retired, Brundage called for abolition of the
Winter Olymnic Games after 1976 because of rampant com-
mercialism. n-rticalarly in Alpine skiing.
"There are only two kinds of competitors," Brundage said
in his final speech to the IOC in August 1972. "Those free and
independent individuals who are interested in sports for sports'
sake, and those in sports for financial reasons. Olympic glory
is for amateurs."
Tiant to see parents
HAVANA - Sen. George McGovern said yesterday Ameri-
can baseball and basketball teams may be flying to Havana soon
because Fidel Castro is receptive to using sports dipolmacy for
warming up relations between Cuba and the United States, and
additionally, the long wait may soon be over for Luis Tiant, the
ace of the Boston Red Sox' pitching staff.
Reports from Havana indicated he soon will be reunited with
both parents for the first time since 1960.
McGovern, winding up his visit to Cuba, said Castro had
agreed to grant visas to the Tiants so they can watch their son
