Buffalo drops Montreal

Minnesota North Stars forward Neal
Broten, a member of the 1980 U.S.
Olympic hockey team, can't see Pit-
tsburg's Rod Buskas, but he knows
he's there.

MONTREAL (AP) - Dave Andreychuk scored his sixth
and seventh goals of the season as Buffalo defeated the Mon-
treal Canadiens 5-2 last night and the Sabres moved into first
place in the Natonal Hockey League's Adams Division.
The Sabres, who made the most of the- 16 shots they
unleashed at Montreal goaltender Richard Sevigny, have 31
points, one more than Boston, although the Bruins have three
games in hand.
Andreychuk's second goal - he fired in a rebound after
Sevigny stopped a shot by Hannu Virta from the blueline at
1:16 of the third period - was especially damaging for the
Canadiens, who trailed 3-2 at the time. The goal, which came
with Bobby Smith in the penalty box, was the Sabres' second
power-play effort of the game.
Nordjques 6, Capitals 3
QUEBEC (AP) - Wilf Paiement scored two goals and his
linemate Andre Savard had a goal and two assists to lead the
Quebec Nordiques to a 5-3 National Hockey League victory
over the Washington Capitals last night.

It was the third straight victory at home for Quebec and
snapped the Capitals' three-game unbeaten streak.
Quebec left wing Michel Goulet broke a 3-3 tie with 26
seconds left in the second period to give the Nordiques a lead
they never relinquished.
Savard fired a short-handed goal at 7:34 on a third-period
breakaway and Anton Stastny was set up perfectly by Goulet
at 9:52 of the final session, to complete the scoring.
Devils 3, Black Hawks 2
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Pat Verbeek's tie-
breaking goal at 10:32 of the third period gave New Jersey a
3-2 victory over the Chicago Black Hawks last night, snap-
ping the Devils' eight-game National Hockey League losing
The victory was only the third of the season for the Devils,
against 20 losses. New Jersey's last victory came on Nov. 6
over the Black Hawks,6-3.
The Black Hawks, 10-13-2 overall, continued without a vic-
tory on the road, extending their away record to 0-10-2.





Same old story for Lions fans .



. .

Lions' fans of 1983 have some good news and
some bad news.
The good news is that the Lions, after their
recent 45-3 Turkey Day gobbling of the Steelers
at home in the Dome, are 7-6 and tied with the
Minnesota Vikings for the NFC Central Division
The bad news is the Lions do not deserve to be
in that fortunate position. They didn't earn it
themselves by staying in their divisional race all
season long; they backed into the lead, plain and
The Lions and their fans had to hold their
breath Sunday while they watched the New
Orleans Saints squeak by the Vikings, 17-6. That
loss gave the Vikings and Lions identical 7-6.
records. When the Lions get help from other'
teams, they don't get help from William Clay
Ford. Reinforcing mediocrity only breeds it. The
Lions need a first string quarterback, not two
second string QBs like they have now. But as
long as we put 60,000 or more in the Silverdome
to cheer for a team which wins 53% of its games,
then they will continue to be a .500 ball club.
But we can't forget about the good news.
Detroit does have the inside track at winning its
division. The last time the Lions won their
division there were only 48 states. The Lions did
win the Western Division (west of what?) in 1957.

Hawaii and Alaska were admitted to th
1959. Seems like a long time ago to som
in 1962.

holding on Detroit. At least the Tigers did it back in 1972,
it 6-7, good the Wings in 1965. If Detroit didn't have the
C Central. championship Panthers, (although they are the
"Michigan" Panthers) we could still pull for the
Express. They play soccer.
Whether or not Detroit wins its division this
year, they will always need Billy Sims. The
question pertaining to Sims resigning with the
Lions after his contract runs out this season is a
popular one. Ford says he will do everything he
can to sign Sims. That probably means he will of-
fer Sims about the same deal, but he'll throw in a
"Cabbage Patch Kid" as a signing bonus.
Ford made sure to sign Monte Clark to a five
year deal, but only signed Sims to a three year
pact. Clark's record is still under .500 while with
the Lions, and Sims is the one who could change
that. But just watch, Sims will go to Houston to
FS join Jerry Argovitz and his USFL Gamblers for
oit? '84 and leave Clark and 60,000 fans yelling at
James Jones.
Will we fans ever learn, the Lions are always

ago.. . I guess.

84 Olympic baseball
finals are sold out


LOS ANGELES (AP) - The baseball
finals of the 1984 Olympic Summer
Games at 50,000 seat Dodger Stadium
are sold out and the 16-game tour-
nament, a first in Olympic history,
could draw more than 350,000 fans, of-
ficials said yesterday.
Between 260,000 and 280,000 advance
tickets have been sold, according to
Charles Cale, vice president in charge
of sports for the Los Angeles Olympic
Organizing Committee.
RELEGATED to one-game
.exhibitions in seven previous Olympics,
the 1984 tournament - an official event
- "will be the greatest single event to
promote the sport of baseball," said
Rod Dedeaux, coach of the U.S.
baseball team.
' "Millions worldwide have not seen
baseball. They will see it through
Olympic television coverage,''
Dedeaux said.
Teams from six countries, including
the host U.S. team, will compete over
eight consecutive days in double-
headers beginning July 31. Cuba, un-
defeated in the Pan American Games
and the world amateur powerhouse, is
the No. 1 seed, followed by the U.S.,
South Korea, Chinese Taipei,
Nicaragua and Italy.
"There is no doubt that Cuba is the
team to beat. They have 10-12 players
who would be at the Class AAA or
major league level in the U.S.," said
Dedeaux, who will assemble a 20-man
squad predominantly comprised of

'88 Winter Games extended
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - The 1988
Winter Games to be staged in Calgary
will last for 15 days, the longest in
history, the executive board of the In-
ternational Olympic Committee has
The board has also agreed to allow
Calgary to add three sports to the agen-
da. The previous limit was two.
The decisions must be ratified by the
full committee during its 87th session
the week before the 1984 Winter Games
in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, next
The key move is changing the dates -
to Feb. 14-28 from Feb. 23-March 6. The
decision breaks the committee
charter, which says the Games are not
to last more than 12 days.
