During their first 156. games, the Islanders manag- ed 31 wins and lost 101 times. They were outscored 594-352 and were last place finishers in the East Division in 1972 73 and 1973 74. But the Islanders have im- proved to a point this year. Statistics released today by the league show the third year club with 22 wins, 18 losses and 14 ties in 54 games, good enough for third spot in the Lester Patrick Division. An improved offence, led by Denis Potvin, last year's rookie of the year, as well as impressive goaltending by Billy Smith and Glenn Resch have combined to provide a good portion of the Islanders success. Potvin, a defenceman, has 18 goals and 41 assists for 59 points, good for 16th place in the over all scoring race. Last year, he established a club record with 54 points on 17 goals and 37 assists. Over all, the offence has produced 50 goals more than it had this time last year iaO compared with 130. The Club finished the 1973-74 season with 182 goals. Prior to this season, Is- landers' goaltenders had fail- ed to record a single shutout. This campaign, Smith has three and Resch has two. They have combined to cut their goals against total by 27 to 147 from 174 and raised their position to third in the goaltending race from 10th. Resch, still a rookie, has a 2.47 goals against average while Smith's mark is 2.74 for a team average of 2.72. Smith has appeared in 40 of the club's 54 games. Meanwhile in the scoring race, Phil Esposito has bettered the 100 point mark for the fifth season in a row. He had five goals and nine assists in last week play to br- Carlton inks pact PHILADELPHIA (AP) Left hander Steve Carlton' signed a three year contract Monday with Philadelphia Phillies, the National League baseball club announced. Phillies personnel director Paul Owens said he also sign- ed first baseman Willie Mon- tanez, pitcher Wayne Twitchell, infielder out- fielder Alan Bannister, and relief pitcher Ed Watt. Owens refused to discuss the terms of Carlton's contract, although he is believed to have taken a sub- stantial cut from his reported salary in exchange for the first three year pact in team history. Carlton won 27 games for the Phillies in 1972 on his way to a Cy Young Award. He slipped to 14 20 the following year, and last season was 16- 13 with a 3.22 earned run average ERA. ing his point total to 105 on 52 goals and 53 assists. Bobby Orr is next with 33 goals and 65 assists for 98 points followed by Guy Lafleur of Montreal Canadiens, who has 44 goals and 51 assists for 95 points. Rogatien Vachon and Gary Edwards of Los Angeles Kings have the best goals against.average with a 2.20 mark while Bernie Parent leads with nine shutouts. Meanwhile, Dr. Jekyll replaced Mr. Hyde in the In- ANDY CAPP dianapolis Racers' goal Mon- day night. The result was a 4-1 victory over Chicago Cougars in a bat- tle between World Hockey Association East Division teams. It was the only WHA game played. There were no National Hockey League games scheduled. Racer goaltender 'Andy Brown, a changed man since a 7-5 loss at Toronto Sunday night, played one of his best defensive games all season against the bruising Cougars, who had 29 siiots on goal. The Racers broke the game open in the second period with three goals, erasing al-0 first- period lead Chicago had taken on Gary MacGregor's 29th score of the season. But Indianapolis got to Chi- cago nelminder Dave Dryden with Nick Harbaruk produc- ing the first goal after only 44 seconds of the period had elapsed. Ron Buchanan followed with a power-play goal at Bob Sicinski add- ed the third one at Jimmy Johnson collected the last Racer goal at of the final period. Buchanan, whose goal snapped a 1-1 tie and put the Hacers ahead for "We're playing good hockey. If the team had won about five or six of those 13 in a.row.it lost, the playoffs definitely would be in our reach. "If we can't make them, we're going to be a spoiler for somebody. I think we can win at least 13 of our last 26 games." DON'T TELL ME ICU'KE QOIN' OUT AGAIN TONIGHT- TAKIN' YEARS OFF YOUR LIFE. QUITE THE LITTLE PHILOSOPHER. ISN'T'E: PREPEB To THINK I'M PUTTIN1 UFE INTO WY YEARS Marlin Briscoe gives testimony MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Miami Dolphins wide receiver Marlin Briscoe testified Mon- day that he once was prevented from going to New York Jets from Buffalo because the Bills were asking too much compensation. Briscoe said a Jets coach told him in 1972, after he became a free agent, that Buf- falo was asking "too much for me in return and didn't know how much they would have to give up for me under the Rozelle Rule." Briscoe is one of 16 present or former National Football League players suing the Na- tional Football League, com- missioner Pete Rozelle and club, owners over the Rozelle Rule. By playing a year without a contract, a player becomes a tree agent and may negotiate with other teams. But if his former team and the one that wants him are unable to agree on compensation, the commis- sioner is empowered to inter- vene. Players contend this rule limits their freedom. Teams often are unwilling to sign a free agent, the players say, because the teams do not know what the commissioner will ask in compensation. Briscoe's reference to the Bills-Jets discussion was his only testimony directly related to the rule's alleged restrictions. The 29-year-old witness spent most of his time on the stand saying that he had not been given a chance to use his quarterbacking talent and how, through persistence, he worked his way from a rookie to an eventual The University of Nebraska- Omaha graduate signed with the Denver Broncos in 1968 for plus a bonus. Briscoe was played at defensive back but was in- jured and was not inserted as a quarterback until two other Bronco signal-callers were in- jured. He figured he did a good job under the circum- stances, during the last four games. He completed 93 of 224 passes for 42 per cent. But the Broncos lined up an- other quarterback in 1969, without telling Briscoe. He asked for 1969 in the hope of getting to "But the Broncos never of- fered more than Briscoe said. He got his release, signed with Buffalo at what he called the "demanding figure" of and won a starting as receiver when the Bills could not use him as quarterback. His highest offer with Buf- falo, after he made the Pro Bowl team in 1970, was so Briscoe played out his option year.
