Roller hockey is supposed to be a high-scoring game, but goalie Rob Laurie flirted with a shutout for 44 minutes Sunday to lead the Bullfrogs to a 7-1 victory over the Blades at The Pond of Anaheim. The Bullfrogs dominated the Blades before 8,653 in their Roller Hockey International season opener, and only a goal by Brett Kurtz with 3 minutes 53 seconds remaining spoiled the shutout.

With their owners grumbling quietly at half time in the halls of the Forum about sluggish play, the Bullfrogs tried a more wide-open approach for the first time in three games and beat the Blades, 5-4, Tuesday. The Bullfrogs' performance in front of an announced crowd of 4,126 was still a far cry from those that helped them lead the league in scoring last season.

Early in the Roller Hockey International season, Bullfrog defenseman Sean Whyte faced a personal dilemma that, by his account, sent him into a state of depression. He had two choices as training camp broke: Remain with the Bullfrogs or return home to Phoenix to reconcile with his wife, Stephanie. He chose the latter, but when the struggling Bullfrogs called 10 days ago looking for his services again, Stephanie agreed she could handle the separation for the final month of the season.

The Bullfrogs ushered in the Brad McCaughey era by bringing their first-year coach onto the playing surface in a shiny, white stretch limousine. "We figured we'd blow it out first class," Bullfrogs General Manager Bob Destocki said.

All-star players usually accomplish all-star feats, but this one bordered on the ridiculous. Bullfrog goalie Rob Laurie had never faced a barrage like the one he encountered July 2. In 48 minutes, San Diego unloaded 70 shots on goal, but Laurie made a league-record 64 saves to lead the visiting Bullfrogs to a 9-6 victory. "It was like a shooting gallery," said Charlie Simmer, the Bullfrogs' radio analyst.
