The Utah RollerBees try to end their three-game losing streak tonight in the Saddledome against the Calgary Rad'z with three new players plus Todd Harkins, whose suspension for Saturday's match penalty against Vancouver will be served in the coming weeks in the two games in Vancouver, and defenseman Rick Lessard, who returns after insurance problems were worked out.

Bee coach Brent Meeke promised changes in the lineup following that 14-3 Saturday loss that left Utah 1-3-1, and he has picked up three local players for this game. They are defensemen Tim R. Hale and Luke Smith and forward Paul Snow, all of Salt Lake City.Forwards Andy Gannon, Matt Malec, Pat McPartland, Steve Pospiech and Reggie Talkington are all listed on the reserve roster. Calgary is 2-1 following two wins over Portland this week. Among Rad'z players are former Salt Lake Golden Eagle goalie Doug Dadswell, who leads Roller Hockey International in goals-against average at 2.5, and Ted Fleury, brother of former Eagle Theoren Fleury.
