The 1997 In-Line Hockey World Championship, which begins Thursday at Disney Ice in Anaheim, is being staged by the world's two largest ice hockey organizations. The International Ice Hockey Federation and the National Hockey League have joined forces with an eye toward getting a foothold in the booming in-line business that claims 4.2 million participants. The first World Championship was at two small rinks near St. Paul, Minn.

Another league, another world title. A profound embarrassment. The Bullfrogs didn't get to enjoy the pinball-like scoring they had in their first two playoff games, but they enjoyed the outcome just the same. Well, for a few minutes, anyway. The team that dominated Major League Roller Hockey brought its season-long pursuit of a title to fruition Wednesday, avenging its only blemish by scoring a 5-4 victory over the Orlando Surge.

The Bullfrogs will have to win two games tonight to win their first-round Roller Hockey International playoff series against the Blades. After losing to the Blades, 10-8, at the Forum Sunday, here's the situation: If the Blades win the regulation-length game, which begins at 7:35 p.m., they clinch the series, 2-0. If the regulation-length game ends with the score tied, a five-minute sudden death period follows. The first team to score will be declared the winner.

The United States and Canada, as expected, posted decisive victories in opening-round games at the International Ice Hockey Federation In-Line World Championship Monday at Disney ICE. But of more interest were the plans of 12 tournament participants, including three Americans, for Wednesday's Major League Roller Hockey game between the Bullfrogs and Virginia.

Fighting to make a bigger impact in an increasingly crowded professional sports scene, the Los Angeles Blades of the Roller Hockey International league hope their winning season will result in larger crowds at the Forum. But that quest gets more difficult this week as the team loses its top three players for at least three games.

Blade Coach Mark Hardy looked over the lineup for tonight's game against the Bullfrogs in their Roller Hockey International playoff opener and didn't mince words. "If they want to win they're doing everything they can, whatever it takes," Hardy said of the Bullfrogs, who have only seven players remaining from the roster with which they opened the season about two months ago. But Hardy didn't begrudge the Bullfrogs. "I don't know how they got all of those acquisitions," he said.

The Bullfrogs hope to continue to ride the hot goaltending of Rob Laurie in the Western Conference finals when they open their Roller Hockey International playoff series against the San Jose Rhinos at 7:35 tonight in San Jose. Laurie has been spectacular in the Bullfrogs' series victories over the Blades and San Diego Barracudas. In the first-round series against the Blades, Laurie recorded the only shutout in RHI playoff history in the Bullfrogs' 3-0 mini-game victory.

If the Bullfrogs were supposed to run away with their second consecutive championship, someone forgot to tell the other 23 teams in Roller Hockey International. Last season, with their roster completely composed of minor league ice hockey players, the Bullfrogs demolished the competition, winning 17 of 18 games and claiming the RHI's inaugural Championship Cup. This season, however, the rest of the RHI emulated the Bullfrogs' personnel strategy.

Bullfrog Coach Brad McCaughey wasn't kidding when he said he liked the mini-game concept being employed in the Roller Hockey International playoffs this season. "I've said all along that it favors our team," the first-year coach said. "With a mini-game you only have to win one period." McCaughey hopes tonight's Murphy Cup final against the New Jersey Rockin' Rollers at the Continental Airlines Arena doesn't come down to that extra 12-minute period.

OK, so it wasn't Lord Stanley's Cup that Bullfrog forward Brad McCaughey and his teammates hoisted Tuesday night at Anaheim Arena. But the Bullfrogs won a trophy and a championship worth celebrating nonetheless. After defeating the Oakland Skates, 9-4, to win Roller Hockey International's inaugural championship series two games to none, the crowd of 8,809 gave the Bullfrogs a standing ovation as they paraded around the rink with the RHI Championship Cup. Friday, the Bullfrogs won Game 1, 10-7.
