New York Islanders' hopes of making a playoff berth this season in the National Hockey League have long gone, but they made things painful Tuesday for one of the clubs still in contention. The Islanders hammered St. Louis Blues 5-1 to snap New York's 10-game losing streak and dimmed St. Louis' chances of catching Atlanta Flames, who occupy the fourth and final playoff position in the West Division. The Flames, idle Tuesday, remained five points ahead of the Blues.

North Stars fanned their hopes for the post-season series by defeating California Golden Seals 6-3 and Toronto Maple Leafs, fourth in the .East, remained a respectable distance ahead of Buffalo Sabres by settling for a 1-1 tie with Los Angeles Kings. Gerry Hart and Tom Miller scored their first goals of the season for the Islanders and rookie defenceman Denis Potvin had a goal and two assists. The enthusiasm of coach Al Arbour's players hasn't dim- med, apparently. "They aren't said Arbour after New York's triumph. "It's hard for them to get up when there's no place to go {his late in the Arbour said, "But they really hustled tonight and their attitude is great." .The Islanders' defence, led by the spirited play of Potvin, held the Blues to just two shots in the first period. Centre Garry Unger had them both. Arbour had stressed hustle to his players throughout the long losing skein. "I've been telling them all along, when you hustle the other team's defence is going to make mistakes." One of the St. Louis mistakes resulted in Gary Howatt's goal, which made the score 5-1 with 36 seconds left to play. Howatt sneaked behind the defence, took passes from Bob Nystrom and Jean Potvin. broke in and beat Wayne Stephenson for his sixth goal of the season. "We've been playing good hockey for the last two weeks, but we just haven't been getting the said nursing a broken bone in his left foot. Stamps support Lalonde CALGARY (CP) The management of the CalgaVy Stampeder football club announced today its support of the federal government's opposition to establishment of a world football league (WFL) team in Canada. "The club wants .to go on public record that it supports fully the stand taken by Health Minister Marc Lalonde and that we are hopeful the Canadian Football League (CFL) continues in its present status." the management said in a prepared news release. It said the club feels the federal government's position is consistent with "what the CFL was advised two years ago when the possibility of the league expanding into the United States was imminent." There had been discussions in 1972 about the possibility of the CFL expanding into New York and Boston. Calgary Stampeders do not feel that the competition of having one franchise, such as the Toronto Northmen of the WFL, would adversely affect the CFL. But once a foothold is gained in Canada by a league other than ,the CFL, then certainly the door is open for future franchises in Montreal, Vancouver and perhaps other Canadian centres." The club believes that the CFL, "with its entity entirely within Canada, is in a unique situation that should be preserved and not put into a position of competing with an outside league." Meanwhile the Stampeders announced today the signing of tightend Rod Petersen of Oregon State University and offensive guard Art Bressler of the University of Mississippi with the Western Football Conference club. Petersen, at six-feet-five, 225 pounds, is considered a good pass receiver and was voted most improved player on the Oregon team in 1972. He was team captain in 1973. The six-foot one. 235 pound Bressler was named to the All-Southeastern Conference All-Star team in 1973. Summaries N.Y. ISLANDERS S, ST. LOUIS 1 Pint period 1. NY Islanders. D. Potvin 14 (Stewart. J.
