A little more than two years ago, Corey Hirsch's older sister gave him an idea. Bridget Hirsch, a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York, had recently seen her school participate in a charity hockey game benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. She took a few pictures at the event and sent some information to her family, thinking it might be something they could replicate back home. Corey thought it was a great idea. Then a sophomore at DeMatha, Corey approached coach Tony MacAulay about doing something similar with the Stags hockey team.

At the Ice World hockey rink in Abingdon, the Beijing Cubs were making a comeback against the Baltimore Stars, much to the delight of the half-dozen Chinese parents jumping and hollering in the bleachers. "Step on the gas! Step on the gas!" they chanted in Chinese as their pre-adolescent sons advanced the puck against the favored home team from Baltimore. The Beijing Cubs, ages 7 to 10 - who lost the game, 6-4 - are in Harford County this week for the sole purpose of improving their hockey skills.

Y. -- The Baltimore Bandits played nip-and-tuck hockey with the Rochester Americans last night -- for about the first 10 minutes of their American Hockey League contest.Unfortunately for Baltimore, the Americans spent the rest of the period tucking pucks behind rookie goalie Byron Penstock.Rochester topped the Bandits, 5-2, last night before 5,344 fans at the Rochester War Memorial Auditorium, lowering Baltimore's record to 1-5-1 in its inaugural AHL season. It was the Bandits' fifth game on the road.

Asked last spring why he was leaving the business world and returning to hockey, Herb Brooks reportedly said, "There's only so much toilet paper you can sell."Though Brooks now says the quote is a little more colorful than his actual words, it's a line that might be repeated often if his new job as coach of the American Hockey League's Utica Devils becomes his springboard back to the NHL.Or it might fade into oblivion, as did this former legend in the making when his coaching career stalled after he was fired by the New York Rangers and Minnesota North Stars.

COULD ANYONE make this stuff up? At the very moment National Hockey League owners and players were making a last-ditch effort to save the 2004-05 season yesterday, the U.S. Olympic Committee was holding a conference call celebrating the 25th anniversary of the hockey miracle at Lake Placid. "I'd say it's a bit ironic," said Jack O'Callahan, one of the 1980 hockey gold medalists. The collision of the highest and lowest moments in American hockey history was just a coincidence, but the message was unmistakable.

Portland, Maine -- The differences are at once obvious. The team that was the Baltimore Skipjacks -- and little more than an afterthought in Baltimore -- is now the Portland Pirates, the hottest ticket in this city of 65,000 on Casco Bay.The story of the Pirates' success is as much a story of the mind-set of the city's residents as it is a story of the team's striking on-ice accomplishments. In 1993-94, their first season here, the Pirates won the American Hockey League's Calder Cup. They opened this season with a 17-game unbeaten streak, setting a record for the best start by any North American hockey team.
