Wild defenseman Nick Schultz put on shoulder pads he bought for $200 at a local store. Goaltender Niklas Backstrom wore a catching glove with burn marks across it, and backup goalie Josh Harding had an old facemask with the wrong number. A day after a small fire destroyed most of their equipment, the Wild were back at work Saturday for a pregame skate. They played the Senators at night. No one was hurt in the fire, which broke out Friday in the back of a van carrying the team's gear after an afternoon practice.

The news that Chris Davis had been suspended 25 games for a violation of Major League Baseball's drug policy was still fresh Friday morning, as was the reality that the Orioles likely will be without one of their power bats for the rest of the year. But with the first game of the club's split doubleheader against the New York Yankees hours away, Orioles manager Buck Showalter had to quickly turn his focus to his lineup card. A club closing in on its first division title since 1997 already has overcome several obstacles, including season-ending injuries to cornerstone players Matt Wieters and Manny Machado, but now the Orioles' postseason dreams will have to be realized without Davis, whose suspension would end, at the earliest, late in the American League Championship Series.

Every Tuesday, blogger Matt Vensel breaks down a critical play, sometimes with the help of Ravens players, from that week's game. Today he looks at Joe Flacco's mad scramble on third down late in Sunday's victory. The Ravens struggled to move the ball throughout Sunday's 9-6 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. But late in the game, all they needed was a pair of first downs to wind down the clock and escape Arrowhead Stadium with a win. At the start of that final drive, they had converted just once on third down.

It seems to me that if Charlie Duff and others want to attract 10,000 new families to the city they are putting the cart before the horse in terms of enticements ( "Two ways about it," July 16). How about there being something to go to on foot or bike along the Calvert and St. Paul street corridors they are talking about calming by making two-way? Safety issues aside, two-way is great if there is a reason to slow down. At this point, with few exceptions, there isn't. And if there should be in the future, pedestrian traffic is in no way dependent on the direction the cars are moving.

Scramble shakes up status quo WWE decided to get more creative with the Smackdown version of the Championship Scramble, which is for the WWE title. Rather than being hand-picked, the participants had to win qualifying matches on Friday night's show. And instead of putting together the usual suspects, WWE made the bold move to include MVP, Shelton Benjamin and The Brain Kendrick in the contest along with champion Triple H and the ever-popular Jeff Hardy.

If Troy Smith proved anything this preseason, it was his ability to scramble out of trouble.

Scrabble bidders squabblingThe scramble for Scrabble took a new twist yesterday as the two companies seeking to acquire J. W.

When Will Boyd arrived Wednesday at the People's Community Health Center's Brooklyn Park clinic, he was furious to learn that the center will close at the end of the month. The 63-year-old has two broken teeth needing repair and said he was told he couldn't be helped there. "This is not a way to take care of people when they've got pain," said the Brooklyn Park resident. Local and state health officials are scrambling to find alternate health care providers for People's 1,100 low-income clients after the Baltimore-based nonprofit announced this week that it will close its five centers in Baltimore and Anne Arundel County.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Covering Buck Showalter is often an eye opener. His reputation of being exceptionally prepared and detail-oriented is usually right on. Case in point: Monday's schedule, looming bad weather and Showalter's shell game to try and guarantee that Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will pitch four or five innings. The forecast is calling for rain all day in the Sarasota area, but prospects are a little better for some sun further south on the West Coast of Florida.

A relentless winter has left local governments scrambling to replenish their supplies of road salt and some consumers finding empty shelves when they turn to hardware stores for ice-melting materials. State officials say they have enough salt to meet immediate needs, but at least one county was rationing its use Monday to stretch existing supplies, and local government spending for salt has climbed drastically from recent years. Even before this week's snow, Baltimore County road crews had spread about three times the salt used to improve traction and melt snow and ice on roads last year - about 108,000 tons compared with about 37,000.

COLLEGE PARK  - Maryland erased a 12-point deficit in the last 12 minutes and had its chances against No. 4 Syracuse Monday night at Comcast Center. What the Terps haven't done much of the season - hit big shots - they couldn't do against the Orange. A missed free throw by sophomore forward Jake Layman prevented Maryland from tying the game with 47.7 seconds left, junior guard Nick Faust (City) was blocked on a subsequent drive and sophomore guard Seth Allen missed an off-balance 20-footer at the buzzer that could have won the game.

Buckets of baby's breath, tulips and irises filled a walk-in cooler at Flowers by Gina D. on Thursday. Vases were wrapped with pink ribbons, and teddy bears and greeting cards stood ready for purchase. Missing were the four drivers who had been scheduled to make about 100 deliveries the day before Valentine's Day, leaving the store scrambling during its most lucrative time of the year. "Some of my drivers can't even get out of their street," said Regina Davis, who owns the shop on North Charles Street with her husband, Jonathan.

Melanie Over and Josh Rosella had been planning this day for over a year. Only their plan was to be spending it on a Jamaican beach, getting ready for their wedding, not sweating it out at the airport with most of their wedding party and guests, stuck in snowy Baltimore. "We were supposed to get married Saturday, and our flight was supposed to be this morning at 9:30, but it was delayed and eventually canceled," said a disappointed Rosella, sitting Thursday on a luggage cart alongside his equally disappointed bride-to-be at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

It is a chilling tale of winter, one that in ghost-story fashion begins with a sign that all is not right. Maybe there's a damp spot spreading ominously across a wall, or faint sounds that grow louder and more insistent. "I heard water dripping," Liz Simon-Higgs of Baltimore said, "but mostly what I heard was my water meter spinning. " Similarly, Kacey Gaige heard the tell-tale sound of water on the move in her Severna Park home, "but I wasn't running the laundry. " As she headed into her garage to pick her kids up at school Thursday, the source of the mystery sound was revealed.
