From Wire Service Reports
Jphn Van Boxmeer scored a first-
period power-play goal and set up one
by Richie Dunn in the second period
last night to back the goaltending of
Bob Sauve and give Buffalo a 2-0 trium-
ph over the Islanders that kept the
Sabres alive in their National Hockey
League semifinal playoff series. The
victory cut the Islanders series lead to
3-2 and sent this best-of-seven set back
to Uniondale, N.Y., for game six Satur-
day night. Thus, the Sabres extended
their hopes of becoming only the third
team in playoff history to win a series
after losing the first three games. The
1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975
Islanders were the other teams to ac-
complish that feat.
The Buffalo power play had gone
scoreless 17 consecutive times over an
earlier stretch that ended in Game
Three. But it appears to have regained
its touch, having produced two goals in
Tuesday night's 7-4 triumph and two
more in Game Five.
At 1:52 of the first period, with New
York's John Tonelli off for roughing, a
Rick Martin shot deflected off Islanders
defenseman Bob Lorimer and skittered
to Van Boxmeer. The defenseman, who
also took a number of shifts at left wing
captured the puck to the right of goalie
Glenn Resch and blasted a 30-foot shot
past the netminder's right arm.
At 14:45 of the second period, just 17
seconds into another Buffalo power
play, Ivan Boxmeer sent a cross-ice
pass to Dunn, whose 40-foot shot found
the short side over Resch's right glove.
Then Sauve and the Sabres displayed
the defense that gave up just 201
regular-season goals-the best record
in the NHL this season. Sauve excelled
by stopping 22 shots, many from close
range, to record his second playoff
shutout this spring.
Sauve's appearance was a mild sur-
prise, since the Sabres have been alter-
nating him with Don Edwards, and this
was Edwards' turn to play. But the
Islanders also departed from their
norm in goal, as well-starting Resch
for the first time since their second
playoff game on April 9.
If tighter checking was the motive
behind the move, both coaches got their
wish. Alfter the teams splita pair of 7-4
contests in Games Three and Four,
play was far more defensively oriented.
PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Bill Barber
ties a single-series playoff record of
beat the Minnesota North Stars 7-3 last
night and advanced to the final round
for the National- Hockey League's
coveted Stanley Cup.
Barber scored twice and contributed
an assist as the Flyers eliminated the
North Stars four games to one in their
best-of-seven semifinal. He also set a
club record of 12 points in one series.

The Flyers took a lead they never lost
at 6:26 of the first period when Barber
snapped a 1-1 tie. His short-handed goal
struck goalie Gary Edwards' skate and
bounced into the net off the left post.
Barber also tied Derek Sanderson's
National League record of three short-
handed goals in one playoff year, set in
1969. All three of Barber's short-
uaners were against mnnesma,
breaking the mark for short-handed
goals in one series. The Flyers will be in
the Stanley Cup finals for the first time
since 1976, when they were defeated in
four games by the Montreal Canadiens.
They won the cup in 1974 and 1975.
The North Stars led 1-1 just 44
seconds into the opening period. Glenn
Sharpley flipped a faceoff pass to Craig
Hartzburg who beat Flyers' goalie Phil
Myre on the stick side. After the Flyers
tied it, Reggie Leach acored the first of
his two goals later to give Philadelphia
a 3-1 lead. The North Stars came back
momentarily when Al MacAdam
scored from out in front of the goal just
before the first period ended. Barber
started the Flyers' charge and helped
his icers to eliminate the tough

Connors upset at
NEW YORK (AP)-India's Vijay Amritraj pulled the first major upset of
the $500,000 Tournament of Champions at Forest Hills yesterday when he ousted
second-seeded Jimmy Connors 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.
The match was completed after being suspended by rain Wednesday night.
Connors, who captured the World Championship of Tennis finals in Dallas on
Sunday, fought back to capture the second set before hisusually dependable
backhand deserted him.
Amritraj, who now has beaten Connors both times they have met this year,
continued the sparkling play that he had displayed Wednesday night before the
rain came. He constantly changed pace, using every shot in his arsenal.
The 26-year-old Indian will play Paraguay's Victor Pecci in the quarterfinals.
Pecci advanced with a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Andrew Pattison of Zimbwabwe. In
another match, Vitas Gerulaitis stopped Peter McNamara of Australia 6-4, 7-5.
In later matches, Eddie Dibbs met Raul Ramirez of Mexico and John
McEnroe took on Terry Moor.
The 28-player tournament winds up Sunday with $100,000 to the winner. Satur-
day's semifinals and Sunday's final will be nationally televised.
When play was suspended Wednesday night, Amritraj held a 6-4, 2-1 lead, but
Connors started Thursday's play by breaking Amritraj in the seventh game.
Amritraj broke right back in the next game, but Connors-his backhand working
for one of the few times in the match, broke Amritraj's serve again for a 5-4 lead,
then held serve to take the middle set. The two started the third set by trading
"I played like a beginner in that second game," Connors said. "I hit the ball
solid; solid wide or solid into the net."
In the sixth game, Connors fought off double-break point to hold service. The
next time he served, Amritraj broke him with a love game as Connors hit a
forehand long, netted a backhand, was wide with the backhand, then stroked a
forehand into the net.
Amritraj lost only one point as he sailed through the final game to capture the

NAD How to beat the high cost of quality-
fland save energy:
don't buy more power than you need.
NAD Model 3020 Integrated Amplifier
Your amplifier is the heart of your stereo system. But most amplifiers
are designed to industry specifications which do not always reflect
their actual performance. Under most listening conditions, various
limitations occur which prevent using much of the amplifier's power.
For example, most other amplifiers exhibit noticeable distortion
when the very brief but very high peaks in music exceed the power
limitations and are clipped. To avoid this, program material of
average loudness must be played at low levels so the peaks won't,
be too high. NAD's "soft clipping" circuit gently rounds off these
peaks before they hit the power limit. This allows full amplifer power
to be used on average program material, eliminating the cost of
extra power for headroom for peaks.
Another major power-saver is NAD's infrasonic filter. In addition
to removing rumble and noise too low to hear from your music, it
eliminates the need for amplifier power to amplify them.
And the NAD phono preamplifier is a true -state-of-the-art design
with residual noise that is close to the theoretical limit of the cartridge
