The Skipjacks have recalled right wings Victor Gervais and Trevor Duhaime from the Hampton Roads Admirals of the East Coast Hockey League.Both players will be in uniform Skipjacks notebooktonight at Binghamton, N.Y., and both figure to play a lot."They're going to have to play because of our call-ups and injuries," said Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz. "We don't have a lot of players left who are known for their offense."Victor was with us part of last season, and he's one guy we wanted. He has good offensive skills and might see some power-play time.

Reports Saturday night indicated that the Washington Capitals are close to landing Barry Trotz to be the 17th coach in franchise history. Trotz, 51, the most coveted coaching candidate available, was in Washington on Tuesday to meet with Capitals owner Ted Leonsis and team president Dick Patrick. According to CBC's Elliotte Friedman, Trotz has begun telling other teams he is no longer on the market. Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press was the first to report that Trotz, a Manitoba native, was nearing an agreement to join Washington.

"The young guns," Barry Trotz called them, and the Skipjacks coach could hardly wait to send them into the American Hockey League.He had Steve Konowalchuk, Keith Jones and Reggie Savage. They would lead the offense, Trotz reasoned, and Shawn Anderson and Ken Sabourin would anchor the defense.That, at least, was the way Trotz reasoned at the outset of this season. The trouble was, all those players were taken away from him.Despite that, the Skipjacks qualified for the AHL Southern Division's fourth and final playoff spot by beating the Hershey Bears in their next-to-last regular-season game Saturday night.

Coach Barry Trotz was becoming misty-eyed in the Skipjacks' locker room in Binghamton, N.Y., as he talked about the end of a grueling season.He spoke about spending a little time now with his wife, Kim, and two children. He spoke about the near upset of the formidable Binghamton Rangers in the American Hockey League's Southern Division playoffs. And he spoke about the young players who played gamely during the playoffs."This bodes well for these guys," Trotz said after Friday night's 5-3 loss to Binghamton in the seventh game of the first-round series.

Eric Murano, the newest Skipjack, was still learning his way around the Baltimore Arena when coach Barry Trotz did something that made him feel right at home.He named Murano an assistant captain.Murano had just arrived from the Vancouver Canucks organization in an even-up trade for Tim Taylor. This was in late January, and Murano -- who had 31 goals and 30 assists in 58 games with Hamilton -- promptly went scoreless in his first four Skipjacks games."He was trying too hard to impress, to show us we had made the right decision," Trotz said.

Barry Trotz met with Capitals owner Ted Leonsis and president Dick Patrick in Washington on Tuesday about the team's vacant coaching job, another indication in the mutual interest between the organization and the veteran bench boss. Trotz, 51, is widely considered the top coach currently available and is being courted by three of the four teams with openings. Once the Vancouver Canucks name Jim Benning general manager, as is expected later this week, Trotz will likely be a candidate there as well.

On a recent skate down memory lane, Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau stopped for a few seconds to think of the perfect adjectives to describe the die hard hockey fans who wore out their vocal cords and rattled the Plexiglas at the Baltimore Arena during the spring of 1985. "There weren't a lot of them, but they were … boisterous and fabulous," said Boudreau, who was then a 30-year-old forward who helped the Baltimore Skipjacks advance to the 1984-85 American Hockey League finals.

No sooner was Game 2 -- a 6-2 Binghamton win -- over than Rangers coach Colin Campbell uttered the words the Skipjacks dreaded:"We're better on the road," Campbell said.The team that set an AHL record with 57 wins, 32 of them at home, is better on the road? Campbell bases his opinion not so much on the fact that the Rangers also set a league record with 25 away victories, but on the manner in which the team played late in the season on the road."Lately, our play has been more disciplined on the road," Campbell said.

Not that he really needed to, but coach Colin Campbell issued a glowing endorsement of his Binghamton Rangers."I don't care how you look at it -- and I respect Baltimore and the effort they put in -- but we are a much better team," Campbell said. "On paper, on ice, any way you look at it."Few would quarrel with that, even though Binghamton's firs round, best-of-seven AHL playoff series with the Skipjacks is tied at one game apiece after the Rangers' 6-2 victory Saturday night.The Rangers are the class of the AHL, having set league record for points (124)
