goal by John Tonclli.
Game 2 of the series between Ihc
two-time defending Stanley Cup
champion Islanders and the
Rangers, who finished 26 points
behind their local rivals in the
regular season, will be played Friday night.
Superb relief goaltcnding by
Steve Weeks and Robbie Ftorek's
tiebrcaking goal at 14:56 of the second period had the Rangers in
front 4-3. But Tonclli - whose overtime goal against Pittsburgh Tuesday night advanced the Islanders to
this round - tied it by knocking
home a pass from Bob Nystrom
with 4:16 loft.
After Ruotsalainen had put the
Rangers in front, the game ended
with a wild play in front of the
Ranger net. Weeks was out of position, but as all six attacking
Islanders tried to push the puck into
the unguarded cage, the final
buzzer sounded.
The game began with a six-goal,
penalty-free first period. The
Rangers' Ron Duguajt converted
Mike Allison's perfect pass at 3:19,
but Dave Langevin's slap shot from
center ice eluded Rangers goalie Ed

storm in front 3-2 on goals by Mike

Just 37 seconds after Nyslrom's
short tap-in, Rob McClanahan stole
the puck from center Brent Sutter
and put home a wrist shot lo make
it 3-3 at 17:28.
Weeks replaced Mio, who injured
his back, for the start of the second
period. He mucle a spectacular save

'Mysterious White Mist' Pollutes Indian Pond
Pollution forms spoiled on Indian Pond, including discarded
roofing material, sludge floating on
the water and a "mysterious" while
mist seen hovering over the pond is
under scrutiny by Professor of
Aquatic Biology Raymond Slross.
Slross said the pond has been
polluted for over six years, but
could nol pinpoint a cause. He intends lo extract a sediment sample
within tlie next two weeks for further Investigation,
"The possibility of some sorl of
toxic s u b s t a n c e s such
phosphorous or sulfur coming into
ihc pond from ihc playing fields or
the slorm sewers is a good one,"
Slross said. "A layer of algae is also
a prime suspect in Ihc pollution of
the pond."
When Slross and his Fall 1981
Aquatic Biology class went to take
samples of the sediments in the
pond, they were greeted by a cloudy
white material hovering over the
whole upper end of the pond.
Slross suspected the mosl lo be
another form of pollution, but is
unsure of its origin and composition.
The roofing material came from
a project that was undertaken last
year to repair the roofs on the

or years there has been a nasty
rumor to the effect that Linde

Bonoff are all the same person. Well. I arr
here to tell you that they are not and. in fact,
the very things that distinguish Raltt.and
Bonoff are also the things thai have
prevented them from becoming stars.
Ronstadt's strength has been her ability to
take Raltt's roughness and Bonoff's sensitivity and make them commercially viable
characteristics. While she may not always be
as sincere as her competitors, she has always
been shrewder and In the record business
that Is the quality Ihat sells records. Raltt and
Bonoff have Just released new albums and.

Green Light's major drawback Is that It
sounds like a collection ofuncollected singles
rather than a cohesive whole. Unless you
pay close attention one song Just moves Into
the next until the side is over. This is not to
say that any of the songs are bad (though a
seemingly endless version of Dylan's "Let's

The female rockers ol the Benatar school are

The disturbing thing about Green Light is
ihat Raltt's emotional side Is beginning to
disappear. Though still enough lo alienate

Death Wish, says a lot about where his
career has been lately too.
Jim Dixon
Fans may remember that al the end of
Death Wish, the NYPD had tracked down
architect and former bleeding-heart liberal
Paul Kersey (Bronson) as the "vigilante
. Killer" who'd been bailing and murdering
muggers (and lowered Ihe streetcrlme rate
fifty percent) Rather than prosecuting him
and thereby creating a martyr, they told him
lo get out of town. Kersey left (or Chicago,
where II appeared he might take up where
he left off In the Big Apple.
As Deulh Wish II opens. Kersey has moved his base of operalions lo LA. where it's
much cheaper to shoot (movies and m u g :
gers). Before Ihe movie is five minutes old.
his home is (once again) Invaded by suitable
slimy mugger/raplsl/burglars. His hispanic
housekeeper is gang-raped and murdered,
and his daughter, still aullsllc Irom Tier own
rape In Death Wish. Is kidnapped. Less than
live minutes later, she's gang-raped again,
and then commills suicide, diving oul a window and Impaling herself on an Iron fence.
It's not too surprising lhal less than live
minutes after thai we find Bronson loading
his gun.
This brings me It; my Iwo major complaints with the film. The firsl Is lhal I can't
believe lhal wilh all ihe out-of-work screen-
writers In Hollywood they couldn't (Ind one
who could come up with a less predictable
pint development than this to gel Bronson
back in action. The second major complaint
is that while I assume we're supposetl In lake
all this seriously, the plot quickly leaves reality behind and departs oil into Never-Never
In Death Wish, which was based on Brian
Garfield's novel. Kersey strikes oul al random at street crime out of frustration al nol
being able to bring lo justice the thugs who
murdered his wife and raped Is daughter. In
the sequel. Kersey goes out after Ihe gang
that raped his daughter (again) and. despite
"Murder, gangrape, impaling:
Winner is not a
filmmaker of unbridled
living in a city even blggei and more sprawling than New York, he finds them. They also
seem to be the only people he sees committing serious crimes.
Once he finds his largets. Kersey wasles
no lime in murdering them. In all fairness,
once the ball's rolling. Death Wish II moves
like an oul-ol-conlrol freight train, While
Michael Winner is not a filmmaker of unbridled sophistication or subtlety, he doesn't
monkey around much either. The scenes o l
violence, which once Kersey starts In on his
one-man campaign ol vigilante executions,
come reguarly. are graphic, startling and
brutal. Al one point, Ihe vigilante hero (Ires a

In short. Dentil Wish II is more ol a
B-movie than was its original, and far less
believable. Few viewers will give much
thought to the plot though. The film for its
Haws ami clumsiness, is slill riveting. Bronson is effective in a part which is thoroughly
undefined, am! Jill Ireland and Vincent

than a modicum of suspense in ihe foreplay,

Slill. Ihe film ducks Ihe question ol just

supposed lo be doing In an age of increasing
violent crime.. When Kersey exterminates Ihe

leels students shouldn't have tu pay for buses she admits she hasn't

This Is reflected In her political views of S A a n d based o n her experiences In dealing w l l h students. W c feel thai t h e Is n o l o n l y the
best of the t w o candidates for this office, but Is a solid candidate
regardless of the competition
Mark Weprin
If not for Mike Corso, Mark Weprin would have been our choice
for SA-president. He's got experience and enthusiasm, and he
believes In himself and his ability to Improve SA. While Weprin Is a
well qualified candidate for this position. there are certain quality differences between he and Corso which we could not Ignore in our
Although we believe Weprin has the potential to be a strong
leader, his attitude concerning certain major issues appears to us
somewhat naive In comparison to some other candidates. This was
combined with what we can only describe as a lack of gut determination that would have made his the stand-out choice Corso Is. All
things considered, the Commltlee finds it is unable to endorse this
candidate for the office which he seeks.
Weprin's*haively comes across when examining one attitude and
one platform essential to his campaign.
The attitude concerns the focus of his Interview with the endorsement committee where he dealt almost solely with Issues lhat only
affect the SUNYA campus directly. By not branching' out beyond
this, we feel Weprin missed many
Important outside elements which
affect SUNYA students as well. It
is our opinion that this atlitude is
not only naive when considering
^ V *•'
the effects of all forces on
students, but is also an Indication
of Weprin's lack of confidence In
the complete potential of students
to effect change beyond SUNYA.
To summarize. Weprin gives Ihe
impression that he looks at the
small picture, while missing the
greater and equally Important picphnlit: Sum Slrfnhimp/1 'I'S
ture beyond il
The platform involves an essential proposal of Weprin — the Increase of student Involvement In SA. Like many candidates in pasl
years, he voiced concerns about the cliques which many feel
develop In SA and Ihe lack of new blood entering the organization.
Weprin's major proposal to increase Involvement Is a plan to draw
the interest of incoming freshpersons during summer planning conferences. While this is a viable means of conquering apathy toward
SA. It is also his only truly concrete proposal on this matter Beyond
this. Weprin believes his own person ability to motivate Is the most
important factor that could stimulate student Involvement Based on
past experience, the committee feels that Ihe motivating ability of
one Is not nearly successful in this Issue as is a series of well thought
out proposals. We believe that Weprin is placing too much weight •
on his own motivational ability.
Although his views are mainly limited to campus. Weprin does
have some interesting ideas about the political role of SA "We (SA)
have to be political to teach the student." he said Further he Insists
that SA has been "reactive rather lhan proactive" on Issues. Weprin
is quite outspoken in his opposition to ihe ROTC extension center
on the SUNYA campus which he has been actively fighting to
remove. "I have always been appalled at the ROTC." he said "No
one actually believes thai no discrimination goes on."
Although he said he considers the restructuring of the OffCampus Association an important priority. Weprin has no serious
plans for how he would go aboul doing this. He did say. however,
that he would like to see a student director for the organisation —
currently OCA hires a professional. We see problems with the idea
of a student director. Since It's concerns are with off-campus living.
OCA deals with the city and therefore professional people and their
relationship with students. It is our feeling that a professional director
would be needed to make the organization effective in the city
Overall, it Is dissappolnllng that Weprin Is unfamiliar with the off
campus situation and this seems to be a further reflection of his oncampus emphasis.
Nevertheless. Weprin is a slrong candidate After three years In
the University Senate, he fee's that he has built up some close contacts with Ihe administration — contacts which he believes would be
quite helpful If he were to be elected SA president. Weprin believes
in being firm with the administration when It is neessary. "I don't
give up easily." he noted.
In our opinion. Weprin honestly wants what Is best for SUNYA
However, to be able to tell what Is really best for SUNYA. he needs
a broader range of thinking and experience which goes beyond ihe
Andy Weinstock
Of the three serious candidates lot SA President, we found
ourselves most slronrjly opposed to Andy Welnslock lor Ihe office
He has few of Ihe Iralts we find Important for the position
Welnslock's platform Is loaded with Ideas, bul we doubt he has
the ability to use Ihe presidential office to bring these Ideas to reality
I le is nul nearly as assured of his ability as his opponents, and \KUIW
he lias experience In university aiiivies — he presently serves on the
DAS Hoard ol Directors
he doesn't have the leadership ux
petience or
itlva shown by the olhet two candidates
Like mosl candidates, Weinsrucli dies lack ol communli allon .is a
problem ol SA Alio like mosi ol ihe candl'dales he oilers i,., solid
ways of ending this lack ol«ommuicatlon
Weinstock strongly oppos.-, the lundlng ol odvoi ai y groups "II

alternative is |o only fund activist groups when there are opposite

I le also (eels thai SA should nol have loo ureal o l a political role
I le believes lhat SA losus effectiveness by turniiuj ofl people bppos
ed to the stands SA may take. Again, his reasoning Is faulty. SA, as
part ol lis duty to represent students, must take political stands. We I
are not an Isolated Island, divided from the outside world. We can't
hide from the world, so we must protect our Interests. That's what
SA's political role really Is.
Welnslock also has over ambitious expectations for the job.
He has many Ideas — many good
ideas — but he lacks the ability
and,the ambition to carry them
out. He doesn't recognize the
limitations ol the office, and really
doesn't concieve how far he can
go as president to meet his goals.
for yourself, and it's another thing to turn that Idea Into a workable
The time Peppe has spent In office has given her some Insight Into
the duties of Ihe vice president and has given her a familiarity with
some Issues that she didn't have before taking office. It's unfortunate

Mark Grieb
Mark Grieb's biggest interest seems to be apathy. As a matter of
fact, his only Issue Is apathy. He feels lhat Student Association has
lost touch with the students, and wants to replace what he sees as
SA's devislvness with "unity." However, he presents his ideas in
such an outrageous manner lhat It Is impossible to take him seriously.
Grieb, or "Mad Dog" as he prefers lo be called, is running an Issue
campaign. He really doesn't want to be elected, bul he says he's
running his campaign In order to keep his issue — student apathy —
alive It's good that he doesn't want to be elected, because Grieb
really doesn't know Ihe first thing about SA. He would be a horrible
The problem wilh his campaign is that he never made clear — until very recently — that he Is nol a serious candidate, He presented
himself as a serious candidate, and people look him seriously. In all
this seriousness. Grieb forgot to push his issue.
Issue campaigns can serve an Important role, but candidates running only to raise Issues must
always keep In mind that they're
selling their issue and not their

Vice Presidential
Lori P e p p e
Lori Peppe has already served a month and a half as SA vice
president This gives her an advantage over her opponent for the office of vice president Peppe already knows the job of SA vice presided . and says she can use the summer working on her ideas instead
of just learning the ropes.
The problem is that Peppe hasn't shown a lot lor the time she has
spent in office Part of this may be due to her nol understanding
what the job is alt about. She says that much of her time has been
spent learning SA's audio-visual equipment. Il seems like she has
been spending time turning knobs jnstead of performing the job of
vice president.
Peppe believes thai communications is important lo SA We
agree, bul we didn't see Peppe as an effective communicator. She
had a diflicult time putting her ideas across to us. AI limes in our interview he had to press her to get a solid answer. If she is going to

Referendum 1 - NYPIRG
In 1974. NYPlRG's Albany chapter started receiving $2 per
student per semester from the student tax. Since then. NYPIRG
has proven to be one of the most active and most successful
groups on the campus and In the state,
The New York Public Interest Research Group Is a sludent supported and directed research and advocacy organization that gives
students the opportunity to hone citizenship skills while effecting
social change.
NYPIRG was a member of the suit that gained students In
Albany County the right to vote. NYPlRG's lobbyists at the Stale
Capitol have won many Important victories for students as well as
many under-represented people throughout the state. These victories Include decriminalization of marijuana, truth in testing law.
and the generic drug law. Legal reforms such as those could nol
have been accomplished without the long hours put In by
NYPlRG's active lobbying staff.
However, inflation has hit NYPIRG just as much as everyone
else. The group's Income from students hasn't changed since the
organization Just began and they need more money to keep up
the work. NYPIRG currently receives $2 per semester per student; the referendum would raise that to $3 per students per
semester. The student tax would be raised $1 per semester In
order to fund the raise.
NYPlRG's record In acting In the public interest is admirable. A
"yes" vote on Referendum 1 will allow one of the most active
voices for safe energy, clean air, higher educaston. consumer
rights and students rlghfs in New York State to continue its work.
We strongly urge you to do so.
Referendum 2 - Freeze
The past year has probably seen more concern over nucleai
war than anytime since the "Ban the Bomb" days of the 1950's.
There have been huge demonstrations against ihe nuclear arms
build-up In North America, Western Europe and Eastern Europe.
Public opinion polls show thai unprecedented numbers of people
are worried about nuclear war. And rightly so. There are more
nuclear arms pointed at targets across the globe than ever before,
This facl, coupled with the Reagan administration's increasingly
Inflammatory nuclear rhetoric and plans to nearly double the existing number of U.S. nuclear warheads has brought us closer to
nuclear war than we've been since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Wilh the United Nations planning a Second Special Session on
Disarmament In June, people all over the U.S. have been
organizing to spread the word of arms redlctions. People are
recognizing that the Insanity of the arms race must end. or else
we will surely end the human race.
This anil-nuclear movement has reached Albany State, in the
form of Resolution 2. This resolution reads.
"In order to enhance our security, the students of the State
University of New York at Albany do hereby Urge the New York
Congressional Delegation to call upon ihe Executive Branch of
the U.S. Government to negotiate with the Soviet Union an Immediate, mutual U.S./Soviet halt to Ihe nuclear arms race We
further urge the Administration to negotiate permanent
U.S./Soviet freeze on nuclear weapon as a necessary first slep
toward reductions in the nuclear arsenals of both nations."
It's time for the people of this planet to tell our governments to
end this insanity. This resolution is a small bul important step In
this effort. The more each of us lell out leaders to work toward
peace, not war. Ihe more likely they are to step this dangerous
arms build-up.
A "yes" vote for this referendum is a vole lor rationality, and a
vote againsl war. Wu hope you do so

believe I can carry out these plans due to my experience
on campus. I have been Chair of Central Council
Academics Committee, Telethon On Campus Chair, President of University Action (or The Disabled, created the TA
Restructuring Committee, and a Middle Earth Counselor;
amongst other positions I have held.
As Is by now evident, I feel students should play a major role In shaping the university. We should take responsibility for the direction of our education. The ideas I have
expressed here will help foster a better university community. The keys remain involvement and communication. With extensive participation my Ideas as well as
others can be Implemented to enhance an individual's
educational experience. In my mind this is the essence of
student government.
For a long time now people have been complaining
about apathy on this campus. It was once said that "there
are no apathetic people just apathetic leaders" and to an
extent 1 agree with this statement. I am really getting sick
and tired of the "If people don't want to get Involved,
screw 'em" attitude that has been apparent In S.A. over
the past few years. I don't think apathy Is the real problem. S.A.'s problems stem from, within. The people involved In student government and student groups have to
feel that they are a serious part of what is going on In S.A.
If the people involved in student governement don't feel
that what they are doing Is gratifying they are going to get
fed up with S.A. How can we scream and yell about
students being apathetic when, a lot of people inside S,A.
are apathetic themselves. The S.A. President has to keep
close contact with what the people in S,A. are doing. The
same holds true for sludent groups. Although S.A. has
done a good job overseeing the student groups, they
haven't taken the time to keep in touch with exactly what
they're doing and what problems they are having.
As President, I will work closer with the student groups
and the Director of Student Programming. I will keep in
close contact with the students on Central Council,
Senate, and on other committees to find out what they are
doing and what they would like to do.
Over the past few years. S.A. has had a tendency to be
"reactive" as opposed to "pro-active". It has waited for
problems (like students almost losing their Senate seats last
year) to come along before It will do something about it.
We should not always be on the defensive We must start
changing the things that can be improved on campus.
Status quo is not always the best way There arc a lot of
problems In registration, athletics. UAS. and especially in
academics, that we should be working on and not putting

This past yeai Student Association has been mired In In
ternal Conflict
questions of minimum wage, stipend

of Improving student services, widening at ademic > In ik e
and political activism.
Th|s yeai Studenl Association has alienated students by
not motivating them to partlcipaja in meaningful change,
on campus. I say there's got to be a better way.
The first step towards getting students involved is to Inform them of the issues. This can't be done by waving a
piece of paper at them as they walk through the Campus
Center. It must be done by taking the issues door to door.
Mechanisms already In place must also be utilized. This
year S.A. didn't attend one quad board, dorm or RA
meeting. Referendums serve the dual purpose of gauging
student opinion and Informing students of the issues at
hand. Lastly S.A. should work with students who are taking classes that require school or community service, (ie
RCO 209, Political Science Independent Study and SSW
290 — community service). Only In this way can we
organize students lo protect their own interest.
You can't improve academics on this campus by paying
lip service to different ideals. Improvement can only be
achieved through hard work on pragmatic ideals, for instance career planning should be used in conjunction with
advisement. In other words. "What alternatives are
available if I choose this major?" To Improve advisement,
three hour advisement seminars for professors should be
set up. C U T - , could teach professors how to better advise
students, while department chairs and senate resolutions
urge faculty members to attend. Lastly three days lo one
week of T.A. training should be implemented. This should
be along the Syracuse model where T.A.'s are filmed,
reviewed, and evaluated. S.A. must lake the lead in active
change In academics on this campus.
S.A. can't expect the administration to widen sludent
services. Central Council representatives must take an active role in new projects. These projects are nol Instituted
at central council meetings, but rather through meetings,
phone calls, and research. To gain new ideas S.A. should
have forums on the quads where students are invited to
voice their concerns. Next year I propose that we alleviate
the problems of students on Alumni, who must come uptown to do their copying, by putting a Xerox machine on
Alumni. Furthermore. I feel this campus needs a ticketron
In the contact office. O.C.A. should fulfill diverse needs of
off-campus students by putting on social activities (i.e. a
block party). Other student service ideas that I have include a tampon machine In the ladles bathrooms {they
were removed three years ago), and pizza delivery from
the sub shops. I feel my experience uniquely qualifies me
to achieve these goals.
My U.A.S. experience has enabled me to Improve Student Services. I worked to get liquor specials which will
take effect this fall. As chair of the U.A.S. programming
committee, protecting all students, money was given to
Martin Luther King Day and Black Women's Week as well
as to Telethon which sharply contrasts with this years
finance committee. Additionally I worked for a " N o " vote
on a board rale increase, My work on the S.A. Supreme
Court and Student Conduct Committee helped guarantee
that students had a fair chance. Moreover, as a member of
A . M . I A. Council I ran an A.C.V.I, tournament and I am
co-coordinator of the 4th Annual Molson Challenge Cup
Last year ('H0-'8T) as a member of Finance Committee I
worked to insure that the student tax dollar was well-spent.
Can S.A. say the same this year? In addition to these, my
experience includes Quad Board. Flection Commission
and Class of '84 Council. Experience, Ideas, and Accomplishments are what makes me the best candidate.

As with any political candidate. I have fhoughl over the

I believe I am the best qualified person to fulfill the responsibilities, By successfully combining my current experiences
as State Quad Board President and pasl Vice President I
hope lo make the position not just a coordinator, but an
Initiator too.
I feel I have enough knowledge in making budgets work
not only because of Quad Board, but also as an assistant
to the manager of a gift shop. I think I have the
knowledge thai is essential lo the SA budgetary system.
Moreover. I. too. am a student and have the same con

concerns, and mosl importantly lack of studenl spirit
In order lo gel a full picture of more of the sludent concerns. I would like to lake a poll of you the students A\U\

Visual and lighting is necessary to learn about, since the

realize that the only way lo end apathy is by
avoiding any attack on apathy itsell' and instead attacking issues with action backed
with ideas?
Well Cirieb seems to he making himself
feel good, stroking his ego, running all over
campus telling everyone that he will throw
apathy out ol' the university. There was a
guy named Varro in Rome a few centuries
ago who went around campaigning on the
platform that he would throw Hannibal out
of Rome. He never told anyone how, thus
he was elected, and thus fell Rome.
Furthermore, Cirieb is full o f cry-baby attacks against Ihc other candidates, the Student Association, and ASP for treating him
unfairly. In the ASP (on April 16) he said
" I heard the ASP was endorsing Mark
Weprin two weeks before they interviewed

Nukes For Thought
During the Second World War, the U.S. discovered the ultimate
killing weapon — the nuclear bomb. Ever since then, the world has
breathed less comfortably. Never before has man been able lo kill
so many so quickly.
The world has not grown more stable in the past 35 years. More
and more nuclear weapons have been created, giving us the ability
to end life on this planet time and time again.
This week, a group of people arc holding activities about nuclear
weapons and about disarmament. The more that wc realize that
the nuclear threat is here the sooner wc will realize thai wc must
disarm. This week, do some thinking aboul nuclear war and
nuclear weapons. It can't hurt. Nuclear war can.

David Neltl Yapko,
Every year when the ASP endorses candidates, we examine what
we're looking for. The endorsement is not a beauty contest. We try
to find the persons we think are best suited to be SA President and
Vice President. This year we think we have.
Wc looked for a candidate with a good knowledge of campus affairs. We looked for certain personality traits — things with ambiguious names like leadership, honesty, fairness .'. .
We also look at a candidate's stand on certain issues. We asked
the candidates about ROTC, SA budgeting, campaign policy.
We grilled them on the concrete and on the philosophical.
We tried to look past the campaign posters and find out who this
person really is. We think we found out who the candidates arc.
The endorsement is only our opinion, though. When you read
our evaluations and the candidates statements look for what you
want to know.
The endorsement board is made up of editors and jorunalists.
We talked to the candidates for a few hours, yelled at each other
for a few hours, and came up with our endorsements. Every one is
free to disagree, of course.
The Endorsement Board consisted of

College Funding is Cut by 18%
(CPS) Aflcr more than a year of
haggling, Congress has finally approved a federal higher education
budget for fiscal year 1982.
The House and Senate arc just
starting committee work for the
fiscal 1983 budget, which would
fund programs from October I ,
1982 through Sept. 30, 1983.
Congress' final budget for 1982
devotes about $5.5 billion to
postsccondary education.
Though Bob Aaron of the
American Council of Education
called the final budget "the first
milestone for Congress to block the
president on education," it also
represents an 18 percent cut from
the 1981 federal college budget..

Islanders Top Rangers to Take 3-1 Series Lead
NEW YORK, New York (AP) The
New York Islanders understand
why they arc up three games to one
over the New York Rangers in Iheir
Stanley Cup quarterfinal scries.
"Experience," said Mike Bossy,
who scored once and added two
assists as the Islanders topped their
l o c i rivals 5-3 Monday night at
Madison Square Garden.
It was the second straight road
victory in the National Hockey
League matchup for the Islanders
and their third win in a row in the
besl-of-seven series, which they can
clinch at home Wednesday night.
"Our maturity and experience
have shown the last two games,"
Bossy added "They (the Rangers)
have a lot of new guys without
playoff experience. But they won't
roll over and play dead. They've
• worked too hard all season and in
the playoffs to do that."
The Rangers, exhorted by their
fans, gave it their besi efforts Sunday and Monday. Bui il wasn't
enough against the two-time defending NHL champions.
"It's just like gelling a knife
stuck in you," said Rangers captain
Barry Beck. "We've been playing
the way wc want to, but we're just
coming up short."
The Rangers came up short Monday night because Duane Sutler
beat goalie Steve Weeks with 7:33
remaining In regulation. Sutter look
a cross-ice pass from Wayne Merrick, cut In on Weeks and crashed
into the goalie — who was making
is second relief appearance of the
series — as the puck skidded off the
goalpost and into the net.
"I had a little room lo cut in
from and 1 was going to go lo my
backhand," said Sutter, who scored
twice — including Ihc game-winner
in Game 2, a 7-2 Islander victory.
"Weeks went lo pokecheck and
there was some room between his
legs. I went for il and il hil Ihe post
and went in. I was surprised to see il
go in."
Islanders Coach Al Arbour
wasn't particularly surprised Sillier
