goals lead Canadiens
'past Redwings, 4-1

Skrudland's two goals, his first in
more than a year, helped the
Montreal Canadiens down the
Detroit Red Wings 4-1 in a battle of
NHL division leaders last night.
Skrudland, who has endured two
long injury layoffs since last fall,
scored his first goal in 32 games this
season and his first since March 1,
1991 when he connected early in the
second period. He added another in
the third.
Denis Savard and Mathieu
Schneider also scored for Adams
Division-leading Montreal (40-22-
8), which moved into a tie with the
New York Rangers for first place
overall in the NHL. The Rangers
have played two fewer games. The
Canadiens have lost only one of their
past 13.
Brad Marsh scored for the Norris
Division-leading Red Wings, who
tied Quebec 4-4 on Saturday at the

start of a six-game road trip.
Mike Keane dug the puckfrom
the corner and fed it across the
crease for a tap-in by Savard 3:45
into the first period. Then Skrudland
found the puck loose in the slot after
Kirk Muller crashed through the de-
fense. Skrudland beat Tim
Cheveldae low to the stick side.
The Red Wings scored 6:28 into
the final period in a mad scramble at
the Montreal end. Marsh moved in
from the point to lift one over
sprawled goaltender Patrick Roy.
Schneider drilled a low shot past
a screen that found the corner for his
seventh of the season at 9:00.
Skrudland batted in Sylvain
Lefebvre' s rebound from the slot at
The Canadiens swept three
meetings with Detroit this season.
The Red Wings last won, at the
Forum on Feb. 6, 1988.


Rodman's rebounding leads Pistons past Lakers *

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -
Dennis Rodman is well on his way
to his first NBA rebounding title and
only the second in Detroit Pistons
history. He won't accept all of the
credit, though.
"If I win the rebound title this
year, 50 percent goes to me, 25 per-
cent to my team and 25 percent to
Bill Laimbeer," the 6-foot-8 for-

ward said yesterday after reaching
the 20-rebound mark for the 31st
time this season in a 98-93 victory
over the Los Angeles Lakers.
"That's my role this year - to
rebound and play defense and get a
couple of buckets here and there.
I'm just like any construction
worker. I go out there and do the
dirty work, go home and get ready

lims - three seconds ahead of sec-
ond place. I was pretty nervous, but
that was expected going into finals.
I just wanted to finish first and so-
lidify my spot on the Olympic
team. I did, finishing just off my
American record time and two sec-
onds ahead of Dave Wharton, who
has been my main competition in
this country for the last four years.
Tuesday, March 3
Not much going on for me to-
day, just a day to relax after yester-
day and watch the rest of the team
compete in the meet. It was a good
feeling to be done with my first
event and make the team in my best
event. Now, I have to start concen-
trating on the rest of the week.
Wednesday, March 4
The week is starting to get long

now. We have been down here al-
most a week, which is a long time
to be at a swim meet. The length is
probably one of the few bad things
about this meet. To stay mentally
up and ready to swim for that long
is hard.
For me, the big question of the
day was whether or not to swim in
the 200m butterfly tomorrow. I felt
that I had a good chance to do well
in the event but the 200 IM is
Friday and I really want to make
the team in that event so I decided
to scratch out of the fly.
Thursday, March 5
Today was a tough day to watch.
Not only did I feel I could have
been right in there to challenge for
a spot on the Olympic team in the
200m fly, but Michigan's Brian
Gunn didn't do very well in the
event. World-record holder Mel
Stewart won the race, but I was
hoping Brian could get the second

spot. He ended up seventh. Had he
swum his best time, he would have
made the team. I am sure he was
looking to swim much faster than
he did.
Friday, March 6
The 200 IM, my second event,
finally came. I had a tough swim in
the prelims and qualified third. My
time was not that good, but I was in
the finals and still had a shot to
make the team. Tonight, I ended up
finishing fourth place. It was disap-
pointing, but I gave everything I
had. It was a very close race be-
tween the first five finishers, only
half of a second separated us all.
The meet is over for me and I'm
just happy to have made the team in
at least one event. All of the names
of the people who made the
Olympic team were painted on the
back wall of the natatorium in the
order that we qualified. I was the
seventh male, which is my favorite
&AIONAiT 1 '1A

number. Pablo Morales is just
above me and Matt Biondi after me.
That is special because those are
probably the two biggest names in
the swimming community. To be
on the wall is also special because
the names are staying on the wall
forever. Any time I'm here at Indy,
I'll be able to look at the wall and
all the great memories will be re-
Overall, it was a meet with
many disappointments for many of
my friends and teammates, but
there were many great moments
too. For me, my goal for fourteen
years of swimming is finally a real-
ity now. Now, there is just one
more step up the ladder - that is
the ultimate goal of not only getting
a medal, but a gold medal, at the
Olympics four months from now in
Barcelona. If I thought I trained
hard to get to this point, I will have
to put all fourteen years of work,
plus 100 percent more, to make that
goal a reality.

for the next game."
Rodman's 20 rebounds kept his
season average at 18.9. He is averag-
ing a shade under 23 in his last 11
games, including a club-record 34
last Wednesday in an overtime vic-
tory against Indiana.
"Dennis is our premier re-
bounder. It used to be me, but now
it's him," Laimbeer said. "I'm older
and I can't move around as much as
I used to be able to, so it's his time
now to jump up and get everything
that he can."
Rodman averaged nine rebounds
over his first five NBA seasons.
He's in position to become the first
player to average 19 rebounds since
Wilt Chamberlain in the Lakers'
1971-72 championship season. The
last player to average 18 boards was
Elvin Hayes in 1973-74.
"He works very hard for the re-
bounds,'' Laimbeer said.
"Rebounding, basically, is just who
wants the ball the most and who's
going to work the hardest. And
that's what Dennis does. le doesn't
know any other way to play, but to
play at top speed every second."
The two-time NBA Defensive
Player of the Year is about to join
Charles Barkley, Truck Robinson
and Michael Cage as the only non-
centers to lead the NBA in rebound-

ing since the Knicks' Harry Gallatin
did it in 1953-54. The only other
Piston ever to lead the league was
Laimbeer in 1985-86.
"I can't attribute it all to my-
self," Rodman said. "Bill Laimbeer
has been a great attribute to me, as
far as knowing how to go for the ball
and being in position."
Joe Dumars did most of his dam-
age in the second half Sunday, scor-
ing 21 of his 25 points to comple-
ment 21 by former Laker Orlando
Woolridge as the Pistons won their
fourth straight.
"They remembered me again,"
Dumars said. "Things were going
pretty well for us by then. Orlando
had it going early and Isiah
(Thomas) had it going for a while.
So when things are going well like
that, you just have to ride it out and
wait your turn."
The victory was the ninth in 12
games for the Pistons, putting them
12 games over .500 for the first time.
The Lakers, meanwhile, suffered
their 11th defeat in 13 tries.
"We played hard in the first
half," said Los Angeles' Sam
Perkins. "We tried to come back in
the second half, but it was the quar-
ter-by-quarter mistakes that cost us
the game."
