.Rookie goalie sparks Bruins win
BOSTON (AP)- The goaltending of Mike Moffat, playing
ift only his third National Hockey League game, and goals by
Peter McNab, Brad Park and Mike O'Connell lifted the
Boston Bruins to a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres last
night in the opener of their playoff series.
The 20-year-old Moffat turned aside 24 shots as Boston
gained the upper hand in the best-of-five series that continues
McNab and Park each scored his 32nd career playoff goal
*before Yvon Lambert spoiled Moffat's shutout bid at 8:20 of
the third period.
Just 1:28 later, O'Connell fired a slap shot from about 40
feet on the right side that went through the legs of defen-
seman Hannu Virta and past goalie Don Edwards.
McNab connected on a power play with just 16 seconds left
in the first period. He took a drop pass from Park, and his 20-
foot shot from the right circle beat Edwards to the goalie's
At 18:44 of the second period, Park gave Boston a 2-0 lead.
Barry Pederson won a faceoff at the left circle and got the
puck back to Rick Middleton. Middleton then passed the puck
to Park, who blasted it from just in front of the left point.
Lambert's goal was assisted by John Van Boxmeer and
Craig Ramsay. Lambert squeezed his shot through Moffat's
pads. The puck remained in the crease behind the goalie. But
Moffat didn't see it, and Lambert poked it in.
The Bruins outshot the Sabres 38-25 and held an 18-3
shooting advantage in the second period. In that period, the
Sabres failed to get off a shot on either of their power plays.
Moffat joined the Bruins less than three weeks ago after his
junior team's season ended. He played in Boston's last two
regular-season games last weekend, winning them both.
Islanders 8, Pen quins 1
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)- Mike Bossy and Clark Gillies
scored early goals 52 seconds apart, and Bryan Trottier
stretched his record postseason scoring streak to 26 games
last night as the New York Islanders defeated Pittsburgh 8-1
in the first round of the National Hockey League playoffs.
Trottier scored two goals and had an assist as the Islanders
began their quest for a third straight Stanley Cup.
GILLIES ALSO scored twice and added two assists, and
the Islanders thoroughly dominated play. They outshot the
Penguins 19-5 in the first period and 37-23 overall and set the
club record of 24 consecutive home games without a loss. The
Islanders have a 22-02-2 at Nassau Coliseum since Montreal
beat them 5-4 last Dec. 29.
The second game in the best-of-5 preliminary-round playoff
series will be played here tonight.
Bossy, who holds every NHL single-season scoring record
for right wings, did not take a full turn because of a knee in-
jury suffered in Sunday's regular-season windup, a 7-2 loss to
the Penguins. But he started the scoring at 5:52, beating Pit-
tsburgh goalie Michel Dion on a 20-footer from the right cir-
cle with both teams a man short.
TROTTIER, who has 16 goals and 24 assists in his 26-game
playoff scoring streak, started the play by stripping the puck
from defenseman Ron Stackhouse behind the Penguins' net.
The Islanders' star "center had managed only one goal and
seven assists in the final 10 regular-season games.
Less than a minute later, Paul Baxter, another Pittsburgh
defenseman, gave the puck away behind his net. The Islan-
ders worked it to Gillies in the slot and he slid a shot into the
unguarded right corner at 6:44 while Dion was screened by
Pat Boutette scored Pittsburgh's goal on a power-play at
14:42, beating New York goalie Bill Smith. But Trottier made
it 3-1 at 18:56 when he backhanded Anders Kallur's rebound
over a fallen Dion. John Tonelli set the play in motion when
he avoided a hip check by Penguins defenseman Pat Price
along the board.
The Islanders pulled away by outscoring Pittsburgh, 3-0, in
the second period. Gillies fought off Baxter and tipped in
Mike McEwen's shot from the right point at 8:52, Trottier
stuffed the puck past Dion from in close at 13:32 and Wayne
Merrick put in a soft 20-foot backhander off Dion's pads at

Detroit Tigers catcher Bill Fahey stands amidst the snow at Kansas City's Municipal Stadium yesterday. After post-
poning the home opener with Toronto twice, the Tigers finally fled Detroit and the snow for the-"warmer" atmosphere
in Kansas City. Unfortunately for the team, the snow followed them. This time, however, with the help of the tractor in
the background, the Tigers may finally get their season off the ground tomorrow.

inning when Noles hit the next batter,
Clint Hurdle, in the head with his third
pitch. Hurdle suffered an injury above
the right eye that was not considered
serious. Several Reds came out of the
dugout after Hurdle was hit, and the

punches were exchanged.
