Abstract

"Sportland" piece on the Portland Pirates hockey team, which won four out of six games during Thanksgiving week. Heading into the third month of the 1998-99 season, the American Hockey League Pirates are in a badly needed upswing after achieving only three victories in their first 18 games, a franchise record. Even with unprecedented family discount packages and other ticket-buying incentives, crowds in this sixth season of Pirates hockey in Portland have been dwindling. The Thanksgiving eve game against St. John drew only 2,953 to the 6,800-capacity hall, the second smallest turnout since the Pirates came to Portland.
