Ever since he came to the Skipjacks in an offseason trade with Winnipeg, center Simon Wheeldon has preached the power of the power play.Never was its strength more evident than in last night's 5-2 win over the Halifax Citadels at the Arena.The Jacks (7-4-1) scored on three of their first five power plays in the opening period, with the line of John Purves, Craig Duncanson and Wheeldon landing all of the goals."When the specialty units are clicking like that, you win games," said Wheeldon, who has seven goals, five with the extra attacker.

MONCTON, New Brunswick -- The Skipjacks' woes continued last night as they lost an 8-3 decision to the Moncton Hawks before 5,880 at the Moncton Civic Center.The defeat stretched Baltimore's winless streak to nine games, including its six-game trip to the Maritime Provinces, prompting coach Barry Trotz to hold a closed door meeting afterward, which lasted about an hour after the final buzzer.The Skipjacks showed some fire in the opening period against the Hawks, battling back from a 3-0 deficit to pull even.

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. -- Maybe more than just the names have changed for the Baltimore Skipjacks. Maybe the changes, brought about by promotions, demotions and trades, have resulted in a team that can bust an opponent's momentum by answering goals with goals.Maybe this finally will be a team again in search of the Calder Cup.Then, again, maybe it's too early to be considering such %J possibilities.The Skipjacks, now undefeated after two games, held on for a 6-5 American Hockey League victory over the Adirondack Red Wings last night before a season-opening crowd of 3,993 at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
