"I was more nervous tonight than I have ever been in my said Resch, a 25- year-old native of Moose Jaw, Sask. "A goalie's nerves are just shredded away and everything is reflex The Islanders, who can pro- tect only two goalies in the NHL expansion draft this summer, called Resch up to see what he could do in the NHL. "I sort of feel like an intruder coming up he said "I know Gerry Desjardins and Billy 'Smith have been playing real well I'm sure the team knows that, too, and the main thing you don't want to do is let your team-mates down. That's why this feels so great. The name of the game is winning, not tying or losing." The Canadiens improved their road record to 15-5-5, tops in the league, as they scored their first win over the Blues this year after losing 5-0 and 8-4 verdicts.
