Stanley Cup Playoffs Begin For NHL's Best By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Now that the preliminary mind is over, Uie National lock^y League's four division hampions swing into Stanley ^up playoff action in the quar- er-finals which begin today. Chicago. Montreal. Boston and Philadelphia had marked ime while the rapid-fire first- ound was played involving the eight Clip qualifiers. A! Arbour, coach" of the New L'ork islanders, called the best- if-three first round "Russian roulette." And he won't get any argument on that from lh,e Buf- "alo Sabres, who play t h e slanders in .the opening game of their best-of-seven set tonight. The Sabres had to go into overtime before edging St. ^ouis 2-1 on Don Luce's goal Friday night. It was Buffalo's second straight overtime victo ry against the Blues in the playoffs. "This series was one o f - t h e :onghest the Sabres have ever aeen involved 1 in," said Buffalo Coach Floyd Smith. "It was short, but it was tough.' 1 IMPORTANT The outcome was 'importani to subsequent series matchups If Buffalo had lost. the. Island ers, winners of two straight in the opening round against Van couver, would have faced Los Angeles in the quarter-finals Now the Kings will play Boston instead. In the other quarter-fina matchups, Chicago opens a Montreal, and Toronto, a 4-0 vinner over Pittsburgh in the deciding game of their first- round series Friday night, goes igainst defending champion hiladelphia.

"We're young 3ut we have a lot of drive an zip." Buffalo had an uphill battli losing its first game to S Louis, then staying alive wit an overtime victory in the se ond game and winning it, acai \n overtime, in the third gam The heroes for the Sabi\ were Dannj' Gare and Luc who scored the game-winnii goals, biit the star of the serie had to be - St. Louis' rook goalie, Ed Staniowski.- A year ago, Staniowski wa playing junior hockey.' Draflf by the Blues; fhe 20-year-p goalie' had played only nin games for St. Louis during th regular season. But Coach Le Boiyin decided to throw hi into t h e 1 Stanley Cup pressu cooker and the youngster r spbhded brilliantly. Slaniow's faced a barrage of 128 shots, a average of almost 43 per gam and led the Blues within whisker of a major ups against the Sabres, playoff ( nalists a year ago. Boivin said he was proud the rookie goalie and the rest his team. "They never quit. Eva shift, every guy, every gam they did what I- wanted them," he said.
