A conservative estimate is that after previous experiences with Baltimore -- one, two, three strikes, yer out! -- the American Hockey League isn't likely to return to the city before the fourth millennium is reached, which will probably be just in time for the new arena downtown.The going price for AHL franchises is $2 million and that's what an Ohio group headed by Cincinnati Gardens owner Jerry Robinson will be handing over for the Bandits shortly. Tentative approval for the sale has been given by the league's board of governors.

QUEBEC CITY -- The Washington Capitals came out of yesterday's NHL expansion draft in pretty much the same shape they entered it.And that's exactly the way general manager David Poile wanted it.Poile left slim pickings for Anaheim and Florida when he traded Reggie Savage, Paul MacDermid and Paul Cavallini on Sunday. The expansion clubs' enthusiasm -- or lack of it -- was evident as the draft unfolded at the Octave-Cremazie Hall of the Grand Theatre. The Capitals lost no one off their 1992-93 roster, and were the second-to-last team to have a player selected.

Opponent: St. John's Maple LeafsSite: Baltimore Arena, 7:30Radio: WITH (1230 AM)Outlook: The Skipjacks are living up to preseason predictions by coach Rob Laird,who said his team would do a lot of scoring (13 goals in 2 games). But Baltimore is giving up too many goals (11 lTC in 2 games) to suit Laird. RW Reggie Savage (3 goals, 1 assist) and LW Todd Hlushko (3 goals, 1 assist) lead the scoring, and D Mark Ferner has 4 assists. St. John's (which was New Market last season) has three former Skipjacks: D Rob Mendel, D Joel Quenneville (player/coach for Maple Leafs)

The Skipjacks and the Washington Capitals each earned their first victories of the season over the weekend.For the Caps, it took two home games, as they lost to Pittsburgh Friday, 7-4, before returning for a 6-4 victory over Detroit on Saturday with Mike Liut in net for both games.With goalie Don Beaupre back with the Caps as a backup, the Jacks reaped the benefit of the return of Jim Hrivnak, who was excellent in a 5-3 win in Hershey on Saturday. After falling behind 2-1, the Jacks rallied on a pair of goals from John Purves and one each from Reggie Savage and Alfie Turcotte.

The Skipjacks split a pair of games at the Arena with the New Haven Nighthawks. Left wing Brent Hughes was the team's offensive leader, scoring three times in Friday's 8-3 victory and getting both goals in a 3-2 loss Saturday afternoon. Reggie Savage (two goals, four assists), Todd Hlushko (one goal, four assists) and Simon Wheeldon (one goal, two assists) were also busy in the offensive end. Jim Hrivnak made 26 saves in the first game and Byron Dafoe had 29 saves Saturday. The Jacks' power-play unit, which has been quite effective this season, was a lethargic 1-for-14 in the games against New Haven (5-14)

The Baltimore Skipjacks made their 1990-91 debut successful yesterday as they edged the Hershey Bears, 7-6, at the Baltimore Arena in an exhibition game. Rookie Reggie Savage scored three goals, including the game-winner.The contest was one of spurts. Hershey opened with a goal by former Skipjack Tim Tookey, scored only 1 minute, 57 seconds after the opening faceoff.Baltimore then scored the next five goals, in a 5:14 span. The Bears retaliated with four goals, all on power plays, to tie the score at 5 at the 12-minute mark of the second period.

Stuck in their worst slump of the season and staring at a five-game, seven-day trip beginning tonight in Springfield, Mass., the struggling Skipjacks have found a pair of reasons to be optimistic.First of all, there will be a fresh face in the lineup as newly acquired left wing Bobby Reynolds is expected to provide the offensive punch sorely missed since Reggie Savage's promotion and subsequent groin injury.The Jacks got Reynolds (24 goals, 22 assists, 65 games) from Newmarket in exchange for rarely used defenseman Rob Mendel five minutes before Tuesday afternoon's trade deadline.

The Skipjacks' roster surely must be complete with the heavy list of 30 players the AHL team received after the Washington Capitals' 6-3 exhibition win over the Whalers last night in Hartford, Conn.But, alas, more changes are sure to be coming by the end of the weekend.The current list includes four goalies -- Shawn Simpson, Olaf Kolzig, Alain Harvey and Byron Dafoe. At least one will be off to Hampton Roads of the East Coast Hockey League, while two could go if the Caps' No. 1 goalie, Don Beaupre, decides to re-report to camp from Minnesota, where he is holding out for more money.

Washington Capitals captain Kevin Hatcher and goaltender Don Beaupre played pingpong after practice yesterday, but they were among the few to be found enjoying the day after the collapse in Philadelphia.In a fight for their playoff life, the Capitals allowed a 2-0 lead to become a 5-2 deficit and eventually a 6-4 loss to the Flyers on Thursday night. It was so frustrating that coach Terry Murray left the Spectrum without talking to reporters."It wasn't that there was nothing to say," Murray said yesterday.

Before yesterday's game against the Binghamton Rangers, Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz knew his team had to play a solid game without defensive lapses to guard against another high-scoring loss.But what he and his team found was a continuation of Binghamton's Friday night scoring frenzy. The Rangers scored five goals in the first period off goalie Byron Dafoe en route to a 6-2 American Hockey League victory yesterday at the Baltimore Arena.The Skipjacks outshot the Southern Division-leading Rangers 46-23 without leading goal scorer Reggie Savage (30 goals)

LANDOVER -- The Thanksgiving turkey arrived a week early at the Capital Centre last night, much to the chagrin of Reggie Savage.This was going to be Reggie's night, his coming-out party, his entry into the big time of professional hockey. The Washington Capitals and Savage himself had waited patiently but expectantly for the occasion.The kid did his part. The rest of the gang, uh-uh."Horrible," was one of the nicest things coach Terry Murray said about a game that saw the Caps take a 3-0 lead over the Minnesota North Stars in the first 10 minutes and head into the last seven minutes with a 4-2 advantage.

No sooner did the veterans of the Washington Capitals step on and off the scales and roll up their sleeves for a blood-pressure check, when word was passed that several might be battling for jobs this season.The word "battling" was used first by coach Terry Murray as he watched the vets arrive at the Piney Orchard Ice Arena yesterday after completing physical examinations. At the same time, he was keeping an eye on the farmhands hammering away at each other on the ice."There was a time when training camps were just to get in shape.
