Needless to say, Kolbe is pretty pumped up for the inaugural Baltimore Hockey Classic. “I can’t tell you how excited I am for September to come around because getting back [to 1st Mariner Arena]

February in Baltimore is no picnic. The skies are the color of dishwater, the air is cold and the mood is grim -- and that's on a good day.Now, to make matters worse, you can be standing on any street corner and have a stranger rush up and blurt in a jangled, five-cups-of-Folgers voice: "I don't know . . . I kinda like Baltimore Ravens. Do you like Baltimore Ravens? Or what about Clippers? Clippers isn't bad. Am I right or am I right?'Hoo, boy. Clearly, it's in our best civic interest that we get on with the naming of our new football team, the former Cleveland Browns, now that every columnist and sports talk show host is weighing in on the subject and we're all this close to going out of our minds.

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.

The Skipjacks did not lose a game when trailing after two periods.The Skipjacks rallied with a pair of third-period goals to tie the Adirondack Red Wings, 3-3, before 4,443 at the Baltimore Arena.The tie was the second for Baltimore when trailing after two periods. The Skipjacks are 0-13-2 in that situation. It was also Baltimore's second game in a row without a loss and kept the Skipjacks from falling more than one point behind the Binghamton Rangers, who defeated the New Haven Nighthawks, last night, in the AHL Southern Division.
