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. Then the Bullfrogs went out and blew a four-goal lead before pounding out a 9-6 victory over the St. Louis Vipers in a Roller Hockey International game Saturday at the Pond.

The tone for Wednesday night's 8-4 Bullfrog victory over the Oklahoma Coyotes in a Roller Hockey International game may well have been set last week. During halftime of Saturday's game, a frustrated Grant Sonier, the Bullfrogs' coach, blasted his team for its lack of concentration. The Bullfrogs were trailing host Oklahoma by a goal at halftime. However, the Bullfrogs responded to Sonier's words with a great second half and won, 9-7. Sonier's words echoed throughout the Pond again Wednesday.

Double sighs of relief could be heard inside the locker room at the Forum Tuesday night shortly after the Bullfrogs had defeated the Blades, 8-4, to sweep this Pacific Division playoff series. Word from the hospital was that defenseman Darren Perkins, taken down by a vicious slash from behind from Blade captain Steve Wilson in the third quarter, had not suffered a broken leg as first thought.

Every successful team has a guy like the Bullfrogs' Savo Mitrovic. Savvy. Smart. Unsung. But when the Yugoslavian-born forward first set eyes on the Pond four years ago, he didn't see his role that way. "No question, I like to score goals," he said. "I'm not known as a goal-scorer here. But everywhere else I had played I was known for that." The Bullfrogs, who play at Oklahoma tonight, were so loaded with explosive ice hockey players that Mitrovic quickly found a role as a decoy and a passer.

After every Roller Hockey International game, hundreds of kids are allowed to lug hockey sticks, roller pucks and caps into the locker room in search of their favorite players' autographs. No one can say RHI, Ltd., doesn't know its fan base. Those little-known signatures may not be worth a lot at a sports memorabilia show, but they mean something to the youngsters who seek them. And their value is even more apparent to RHI, which stages its third annual all-star game at the Pond at 7 tonight.

The game was about hanging on, and the Los Angeles Blades did that for as long as they could during Thursday night's 10-4 loss to the Anaheim Bullfrogs at the Forum. A crowd of 4,389 watched the Blades (6-8-4) score off the opening faceoff, but then got a prime look at why Anaheim (15-2-1) has the best record in the Roller Hockey International league.
