Friday's Hurricanes-Rangers crowd drew 19,358, the largest home crowd in Hurricanes history (NEWS & OBSERVER, 11/22). The crowd included 8,000 game day walk-ups (N.Y. POST, 11/22). Sunday's Hurricanes home game against the Flames was played before 5,516 fans, "the smallest crowd to see an NHL game this season" (NEWS & RECORD, 11/24). MLB: While Sonics Owner Barry Ackerley "is willing to be a major investor" in Don Smiley's venture to purchase the Marlins, should Smiley's bid fail, Ackerley "appears ready to step in and put together his own group." Ackerley would not move the team because his company has "large business interests in Florida" (Frank Hughes, NEWS TRIBUNE, 11/24).
