The Blackhawks will attempt to wrap up the series in Game 4 Friday at Chicago Stadium. Jeremy Roenick and Graham scored 30 seconds apart to give the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead at 8:31 of the first. Mike Sillinger and Ray Shep-pard scored to bring Detroit even at 14:29 of the second.

Vancouver, which won the division with 96 points, 14 more than the third-place Oilers, finally broke through against Bill Ranford early in the third period. Cliff Ronning, left alone in front, deked the goaltender to the ice and scored a power-play goal at 3:37.

But Murphy quickly stopped the Canucks' momentum with his second goal of the game and third of the series at 4:35. He completed his hat trick with 1 :25 remaining, scoring on a 15-foot wrist shot from the right circle.

Garden City Boxing Club presents Continued from Page ID Bandits threatened only in the fifth and seventh innings, the only times the Expos' righthander allowed more than one Quad-Cities baserunner. "We just couldn't seem to get anything going," Seoane said. "When we did get somebody on base, the next guy up couldn't do anything to push him around." In the fifth, a fielder's choice by David Staydohar that dropped into shallow right field put River Bandits on the corners with one out, but Martinez (2-0) sat Elgin Bobo down on strikes and got Brake-bill to ground into an inning-ending fielder's choice. "They helped us out when they didn't get to Staydohar's fly ball, but we couldn't make contact," Seoane said.

"Usually, that's when we've been able to capitalize." The River Bandits were unable to capitalize again two innings later after Jose Stela walked and took second when Bobo singled, a hit that sent Martinez to the showers. Reliever Heath Haynes struck out Brakebill on strikes to end the inning enroute to his sixth save of the season. The River Bandits collected just six singles in the game, including two each by leadoff hitter Todd Claus and Chris Pritchett. "I thought both of their pitchers mixed their pitches well," Seoane said. "We really hadn't seen a good curveball pitcher all year, and both of their guys kept us off-balance the whole game.

We can't worry about this. We'll bounce back." The River Bandits will have three chances in the next two days to do that, hosting Waterloo in a single game tonight and in a Friday doubleheader. Against the Diamonds, the River Bandits will be looking to hold onto their 3 'A game lead in the Southern Division. Cedar Rapids closed the Quad-Cities lead with a victory Wednesday at South Bend.
