Hartford got within 4-3 and 5-4, the latter on Murray Craven's shorthanded goal with 1:52 remaining, 2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Shannon took a pass across the slot from Pat Elynuik and whipped the puck into the net, handing the Blackhawks their fifth straight loss and extending the Jets' unbeaten streak to seven. Steen, playing his second game of the season since returning from a back injury, backhanded a rebound for his first goal. Phil Housley also scored for the Jets and Bob Essensa stopped 25 shots. Steve Smith and Mike Peluso scored for Chicago. ... U.S. Open champion Payne Stewart finished the Skins Game as a spectator, but he didn't have to sit in the cheap seats. On Sunday, Stewart sank a three-foot putt worth $260,000, his biggest payday. That made him the big winner in the two-day, four-man, made-for-TV event at La Quinta, Calif. Eliminated from the two-hole, sudden-death playoff, he was with Jack Nicklaus on the sidelines when rookie John Daly beat Curtis Strange for the last $40,000 skin. Daly finished with $160,000, Strange won $120,000, and Nicklaus was shut out. Under the Skins format, the first six of the 18 holes were worth $20,000 each, the next six $30,000 and the final six $40,000. If two or more playeis tied a hole, the money carried over to the next one. Stewart won his jackpot with a three-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole. The seven previous holes had been halved. "I finally got out from under John," Stewart said. "I'd been hitting good shots, and then he'd cap me. This time he let me loose." On three other holes two Saturday and another Sunday Stewart had put his approaches within tap-in distance for birdies, but each time Daly matched or bettered him. No. 18 produced no winner, forcing a playoff. Nicklaus and Stewart each hit second shots into the water on the first playoff hole, and were eliminated. Strange and Daly matched pars and continued the playoff. Each was about 30 feet from the hole. Strange ran his putt six feet past the flag, and Daly lagged up close. When Strange missed coming back, Daly tapped in for the winner. Nicklaus, 51, was bothered by a chronic back condition and canceled plans to compete in the Senior Tour's season-ending event in Puerto Rico later this month. "I didn't play weD enough to compete with the way these guys played," he said. "When John hit it past me by 100 yards, I was wondering if I belonged in this league." BASEBALL San Francisco outfielder Kevin Mitchell, the 1989 National League MVP, was free on $61,000 bail after being arrested for investigation of rape, Chula Vista, Calif., authorities said. The rape was alleged to have taken place at 4 a.m. Pacific time Saturday. "The victim, an acquaintance of Mitchell's, went to his residence at his request to talk," Det Tom Everett's report said. "He dragged her into his bedroom where he forcibly raped her." Mitchell, 29, also is under investigation for rape with a foreign object, battery and false imprisonment, Lt. Art Gawf said. . . . Six offers are on the table, and free agent Bobby Bonilla might pick one as early as today, agent Dennis Gilbert said. California, both Chicago teams, the New York Mets, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are in the running. Bonilla hit .302 with 18 home runs and 100 RBIs for the Pirates last season.

Referee Denis Larue. Tennessee senior Todd Williams, a 1987 graduate of Monroe High, was a surprise winner in the National Crosscountry Championships in Boston on Saturday, fighting his way through the pack to finish the 10-kilometer course in 29 minutes, 18 seconds. The favorite, eight-time champion Pat Borders of Alamosa, Colo., finished in 29:34. The victory earned Williams, the Class A cross-country and 3,200-meter champion as a junior and senior, a berth on the U.S. team for next year's world championships in Boston. Monroe High coach Dave Bork wasn't surprised at Williams' victory: "Not a bit. He has a tremendous amount of talent, but what he has that other runners don't have, is the ability to work harder than anyone else. You put those two things together and what you have is dynamite." Lynn Jennings of Newmarket, N.H., won her fifth straight women's Jets 3, Blackhawks 2 title and sixth overall, finishing the 6K course in 19:24.

Dave Gagnon sustained a severe left-hamstring pull Sunday night against Team USA and his relief man, Scott King, is headed back to Toledo today. Coach and general manager Bryan Murray said he expected to recall Allan Bester from Adirondack while he continued trade talks to acquire another goaltender. The Wings waived Bester this season but he went unclaimed and reported to the minors. Cheveldae got the night off Sunday, but it could be his last for a while. A deal is not imminent, Murray said before the game. After two impressive games with Toledo over the weekend, Gagnon had a chance to win playing time. He was the game's first star in a 5-3 victory over Erie and the No. 2 star in a 3-0 loss to Columbus. "He's really working on some of the things we've talked about in the month he's been here," Wings goaltending coach Phil Myre said. "He's starting to get used to just letting the puck hit him. He's so big (6-feet, 185 pounds). He has to take advantage of his size." Knee surgery will keep goalie Vincent Riendeau out until about March. He must undergo arthroscopic surgery again in two to three months to determine whether the first surgery corrected all the damage done in his first start as a Red Wing on Oct. 25. The backup Saturday night in St. Louis was King, who relieved Cheveldae in the third period of a 7-3 loss. Cheveldae has played in each of the 26 games. Saturday Night Leftovers: Rookie defenseman Nikias Lidstrom was a minus-1, the second time all season his game rating was a minus. Defenseman Vladimir Konstantinov had two assists, giving him 13, second among NHL rookies to Lidstrom's 20. Konstantinov was a plus-2 Defenseman Dennis Vial finally lost in a Wings uniform. He joined the lineup at the start of their 10-game (8-0-2) unbeaten streak. It was also the first time this season the Wings lost with defenseman Steve Chiasson in the lineup. They were 6-0-1 with him. "It was nice," Murray said of the streak. "You know you can't win every night. You know there will be nights like this. But . . . now we're going to have to start a new one Tuesday night. ..." The opponent is Calgary at Joe Louis Arena. . . . Former Red Wing Adam Oates had four assists. Brett Hull's hat trick was the 12th of his career and his 11th in St. Louis, tying him with Bernie Federko for the team record. Federko finished his career in Detroit and works in St. Louis as a TV sportscaster. led 1, Chicago, Smith 3 (Larmer, Sutter), 638 (oo) 2, Winnipeg, Housley 9 (Numminen, Romaniuk), 14:44.

Hackin' Jack Haley even his teammates call him that made a rather auspicious first start for the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday. Sure, he scored 10 points. , Sure, he grabbed 10 rebounds. And sure, the Lakers beat Philadelphia, 93-91. But check out the summary: Haley was charged with only two personal fouls in 29 minutes. Perhaps Haley heeded the words of NBA commissioner David Stern, on whose carpet he was called last season. "Last year I had eight consecutive games with a flagrant foul, so the NBA pulled me into the head office and said enough of that," Haley said. "I guess I was trying to set the record, or something. "David Stern and (league VP) Rod Thorn called me and they had a highlight film of my fouls, and they asked me to explain each one. I went with the standard response that I was going for the ball, but it was very evident that I wasn't. "They basically just said, A) it's very expensive and B) they were trying to make sure I wasn't turning into a Bill Laimbeer or a dirty player. They said they know I'm a physical player and like to play hard, and that I didn't have to be a dirty' player. I accept that. "Now I try to give very hard fouls and try not to be too flagrant." Sportspeak ... Scott Skiles, who signed a four-year, $8.4-million deal with the Orlando Magic last season, asked whether he was recruited by in-state Indiana before choosing Michigan State: "If I had a dollar for every time somebody asked me that question . . . Wait a minute. I do have a dollar for every time somebody has asked me that question." Oakland Athletics slugger Jose Canseco, offering financial advice to free agent Bobby Bonilla: "Ask for $35 million for five years. Then you and I will start our own league." Utah basketball coach Rick Majerus, on a three-day trip to California to play San Jose State on Friday: "It got us out of Utah. You can drink a beer here. You can swear here. There are places that are open at night. The sun was out. There's no snow. It was nirvana." Florida defensive tackle Tony McCoy, on Florida State's offensive line: "We watched film on them all week.

The frustration etched on coach Brian Tinnion's face told the tale of the Detroit Rockers' fourth straight loss, a 21-15 setback at the feet of the Harrisburg Heat. "We've been in every game, but we've had to batt'e our way back," Tinnion said. "We get ourselves in a situation where we're down early and we have to gamble to get into it." Former Rocker Ben Pollock broke a 15-15 tie 4:14 into the fourth quarter, and the Heat (3-3) scored a pair of late goals for a National Professional Soccer League win before 2,172 at Ccbo Arena on Sunday. The Rockers (2-5), who never led, trailed by as many as seven points midway through the second quarter.

Harrisburg's 1-2 punch of John Abe and Franklin Mcintosh caused the most problems for the Rockers. Abe had four goals while Mcintosh scored once and set up four others, including Pollock's game winner. The injury-riddled Rockers got more bad news Sunday when midfielder Doug Landefeld left the game with a strained hamstring. The Rockers play at Tulsa on Friday. By Ken McDonald U-M stays put in AP poll: 4th The Associated Press college football poll voters didn't show Miami (Fla.) and Michigan much respect again this week. For the second straight week, the No. 1 Hurricanes' lead over No. 2 Washington shrank even though they won. Despite a 39-12 victory over San Diego State, Miami's margin dwindled from 20 to 14 points. One first-place vote changed: Miami now leads, 37-23. "I think there is a bias, maybe subconsciously because of the reputation over the years," 'Canes coach Dennis Erickson said. The Wolverines stayed at No. 4 despite Florida State's 14-9 loss to Florida. The two Florida schools just changed places: The Gators leapfrogged U-M into No. 3, and the Semi-noles dropped to No. 5.
