For most of Sergei Makarov's 37 years, when people looked at him, they saw what Russian society typically sees in those with Down syndrome -- a helpless child. Today, they're looking at a movie star. Makarov played a leading role in "Little Old Ladies," which took the top prize at Russia's most important film festival this year -- a breakthrough in a country where attitudes toward the disabled are decades behind those in the West.

Igor Larionov scored two goals as the Soviet Union's famed KLM line dominated for perhaps the last time in a 5-3 victory over Canada at Stockholm, to guarantee the Soviet Union its 21st world hockey championship. Afterward, a Soviet official said the line of Larionov, Vladimir Krutov and Sergei Makarov will be allowed to play in the National Hockey League next season. The Vancouver Canucks have the rights to Larionov and Krutov, and the Calgary Flames have the rights to Makarov.

Sergei Makarov, who played on the famed KLM line in the Soviet Union, was released by the Dallas Stars after a four-game comeback. Makarov, 38, had no points with the Stars, who signed him as a free agent Oct. 18. The former Calgary and San Jose player made his name in the Soviet Union as a linemate of Vladimir Krutov and Igor Larionov, now with Detroit. Makarov cleared waivers and is a free agent, the Stars said.

Sergei Makarov scored the go-ahead goal and the heavily favored Soviet Union defeated the United States, 4-2, in the first round of the World Hockey Championships at Stockholm. The young United States team, manned by National Hockey League and college players, neutralized the feared Soviet attack for almost 2 1/2 periods until the speedy Makarov cut in from the right flank and beat University of Minnesota goalie Robb Stauber to break a 2-2 tie. Defending world champion Sweden beat Group A newcomer Poland, 5-1, and Czechoslovakia and West Germany tied, 3-3, in other games at Stockholm's new Globe Arena.

Persistence paid off for Calgary's Sergei Makarov. Makarov hit the post with a shot and then was robbed by Edmonton goalie Bill Ranford in the first few minutes, but came back with a goal and an assist to lead the Flames to a 6-3 victory over the Oilers Monday night at Calgary. Calgary, which moved to within five points of the Smythe Division-leading Kings, increased its unbeaten streak against the Oilers to six games (5-0-1) since last January.

The Soviet Red Army hockey team landed in Los Angeles on Christmas Eve and went through an easy hour-long practice at the Forum before going to Westwood to watch a movie Tuesday night. The Kings had arranged for them to see "Out of Africa," but the Soviet players were holding out for "Rocky IV." The Soviets are scheduled to practice today at the Forum (the Kings have Christmas off) and they were pressuring the Kings to arrange a trip to Disneyland for this afternoon.

The dictionary defines rookie as a novice . In sports, a rookie has always been defined as a first-year player. But not necessarily this season in the NHL. There, the term is being redefined in sometimes furious debates that have spread over two countries. At the center of the controversy is Sergei Makarov, right wing of the Calgary Flames.

The Russians are not coming. Not very many anyway. Recent statements by Soviet sports officials suggest that Soviet players may soon be made available to the NHL, conjuring up visions of Sergei Makarov scoring the game-winning goal in some future Stanley Cup final. However, several key hockey negotiators say such visions are pure fantasy. "I don't see a big group of them taking over the NHL at this point," said Alan Eagleson, Director of the NHL Players' Association.

The Calgary Flames had tied the Quebec Nordiques with a furious finish, 8-8. Calgary scored five goals in the last 5 1/2 minutes, including two short-handed goals in the last 15 seconds . On the team bus, a reporter asked Sergei Makarov, playing his first season in the NHL, if he had ever been in a game like that back home. "In Soviet Union, we play game like this . . . " Makarov said, finishing the sentence by running his finger across his throat in a slashing motion.
