Ailing NHL stars btgin Russian sarias QUEBEC (AP) - The NKL Auster team due to face off against the Soviet Union on Wednesday has summoned a back-up defenseman from the ski slopes because of a mounting injury toll Normand Rochefort of the Quebec Nordiques was vacationing in the Laurent tan Mountains when NHI* team coach Jean Perron gave him the eau on Monday. Of the original starting lineup by North American hockey fans, three won't play because of back injuries: right winger Mike Bossy of the New York Islanders and defensemen Paul Coffey of Edmonton and Mark Howe of PhUadelphia. Top vote-get ter Mario Lemieux of Pittsburgh said he is only 80 percent fit because of a nagging knee strain, and two other members of the original 27-man roster are nursing injuries. "You’re scared to make plays because your knee’s not solid,” said Lemieux. who outpolled Wayne Gretzky for the starting slot at center. "I guess I'm just going to have to play and do my best and get out of here without any injuries," said the Montreal native, criticized in the past for opting out of international hockey when he was slightly injured. Perron, who led the Montreal Canadians to the Stanley Cup last year, said defenseman Ray Bourque of the Boston Bruins has a 50-50 chance of appearing because of a back injury, while New York Rangers winger Tomas Sandstrom was a late arrival after treatment for bruised ribs.

(AP) -Jerry Reynolds' debut tonight as a National Basketball Association head coach will put his Sacramento Kings up against a team that broke a fistful of NBA records when they crushed the Kings last week “Why not (make it against) the Lakers?" Reynolds asked rhetorically when reminded that the last time the Kings took the court last Wednesday before the All-Star break, the Los Angeles Lakers took a 29-0 lead, held them to O-for-18 from the field in the first quarter, and ended the quarter ahead by an astonishing 40-4 on their way to a 128-92 victory The Kings meet the Lakers again tonight in Sacramento, and Reynolds promised a new attitude, but no miracles "The people we’ve got are the people we’ve got," Reynolds said of the team. "I can’t make any promises ... The record speaks for itself — 14 and 32, and probably the easiest part of our schedule is behind us."
