When the New York Islanders sent veteran goaltender Kelly Hrudey to the Kings last season for young Mark Fitzpatrick, they were making plans for the future. The Islanders figured that Fitzpatrick, only 20, would be a star of the future. It appears the future is quite close. Fitzpatrick stopped 33 shots Tuesday night at Uniondale, N.Y., to lead the Islanders to a 3-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

Mario Lemieux scored with 1:26 left in the game on a pass from Wayne Gretzky Tuesday night to give Canada a 6-5 victory over the Soviet Union and the championship of the Canada Cup hockey tournament. All games in the best-of-three final were decided by 6-5. The Soviets won the first game in overtime, the Canadians pulling even with a win in double-overtime. The goal was Lemieux's 11th of the tournament and second game-winner of the championship series.

Sweden put the pressure on, and Finland responded by doing what no other Olympic hockey team has been able to do since 1980: beat the Soviet Union. Three hours after Sweden defeated West Germany, 3-2, Sunday, Erkki Lehtonen's power-play goal with 1:40 to play gave Finland a 2-1 victory over the gold medalist Soviets at Calgary, Canada. The victory gave the Finns the silver medal, their first since they began playing Olympic hockey in 1952.

Steve Thomas scored twice Thursday night at Chicago as the Blackhawks ended a 12-game winless streak against Montreal, beating the Canadiens, 5-3. By winning their fourth consecutive game, the Blackhawks moved into first place in the Norris Division. Chicago has not been in first place alone since Oct. 30, 1987. The Blackhawks, 7-4-1, were 2-9-1 a year ago. They last beat Montreal on Jan. 2, 1985, and were 0-7-5 since.

At the highest level of professional sports, there is little room for sentiment, morality or an honest appraisal of what is right and what is wrong. However, there is always room for an extra buck or two. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that the National Hockey League and National Basketball Association have taken glasnost into the sports arena this year. Money talks, sincerity walks. Surely you have noticed the influx of Soviet players into the NHL this season.

Central Red Army will open tonight in Quebec, and Dynamo Riga Tuesday in Calgary.

Say good night, North America. And batten down the saunas, Scandinavia. You're next. The Soviet Union's hockey team on Wednesday night completed an impressive sweep of this continent (Mexico may have a bobsled team, but it knows enough to stay off skates) by putting Canada through its ice-crushing machine, 5-0, evaporating the home team's hope for a gold on the first day of medal competition.

You sit there watching your mother country's hockey team taking a whipping from the Soviets, four goals down with 20 minutes to play, and inside your heart you are doing a burn, because you are far more patriotic than you let on. Your blood is red, and it is boiling. Your palms are white, and they are sweating. Your whole attitude is blue, but you are trying to conceal it. No way do you want to ruin your reputation as an authentic American wise guy. So, like a goalie, you put on your mask.

Maybe the accepted wisdom is right, and it truly is folly to try to run with the Lakers, play longball with the Yankees, or trade punches with Tyson. But there's always someone brazen or bold or crazy enough to try, and those rare nights when they succeed constitute some of the most enduring memories in sport. The United States hockey team did not succeed here Wednesday night.
