"Friday was Byron's."The Skipjacks' victory before 5,829 at the Baltimore Arena -- their second-largest turnout of the season -- ended St. John's unbeaten streak at eight games.

He allowed only 10 goals and had a 3-0-1 record.But he proved vulnerable to the St. John's Maple Leafs last night as the Skipjacks dropped a 7-4 American Hockey League decision before 2,575 at the Baltimore Arena.One streak ended and another continued. The Skipjacks were unbeaten in their previous five games, winning three.

Don Beaupre, over the course of 16 seasons of goaltending in the NHL, has 268 victories. Yesterday, he picked up win No. 24 this season for the St. John's Maple Leafs as they were pounding the Bandits, 5-2, in an American Hockey League game.During those 292 wins plus 16 more here in Baltimore in the early '90s, Beaupre probably never had it easier than he did in this one. "There wasn't much doing out there," he said. "And when there was, I gave them a goal."One shot is all the Bandits put on the Leafs goal in the first period and the "action" didn't pick up much in the second 20 minutes.

It's only speculation, but don't bet against this daily double.The best guess is Brian Sutter will end up coaching the Calgary Flames not far from the family homestead in Viking, Alberta, and Dave King will be named coach in Toronto where Cliff Fletcher can tutor him to succeed him as the next Maple Leafs general manager in a few years.Flames general manager Doug Risebrough returns tomorrow from the World Championships in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and has scheduled a meeting later this week with Sutter, whom St. Louis fired after losing this year to the Blackhawks in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
