PITTSBURGH -- As far as goaltending goes, this is being called the "B movie" Stanley Cup final.Pittsburgh's Tom Barrasso and Chicago's Ed Belfour can stop as many pucks as they like. The criticism is still likely to keep coming at the B-boys, even the one who eventually wins the series, which opens tonight (7:30, HTS).They continually hear that their teams have to overcome their sometimes erratic play to win.Belfour shrugs pleasantly at the swipes. Barrasso barks viciously."I'll leave all the slandering and slurring to the media," Barrasso said yesterday.

Tom Barrasso didn't anticipate the great, energy-sapping sadness that would come with the death of his father. And then, still trying to cope, he learned his daughter, Ashley, 14, had again been found to have neuroblastoma, a cancer that has a survival rate of less than 20 percent in adolescents. Now, after taking a year off from the NHL to be with his daughter and regain his focus, Barrasso is back, manning the co-No. 1 goalie position for the Southeast Division-leading Carolina Hurricanes and playing better, perhaps, than he was when he went away.

He bulled his way past Rod Langway into the slot and beat goalie Don Beaupre with a shot that caromed off the far post and into the net."

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- All those horror stories you've heard about the Minnesota weather are true. They must be. Here it is mid-May and it's still hockey season.And the natives couldn't be happier. They jammed the Met Center last night to watch their newly beloved North Stars dismantle the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-1, to go a game up on the visitors in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup Championship series.The Penguins played without captain Mario Lemieux, whose back is acting up again. It wasn't immediately known whether he will be available when the series continues here tomorrow night.

WASHINGTON - The Capitals came into last night's game with Southeast Division leader Carolina winless in their past five contests, but at the 13:34 mark of the second period, Peter Bondra pulled back his stick and let a rocket loose. It flew right past the glove of Hurricanes' goalie Tom Barrasso. And for a while, for a full 20 minutes, it seemed all the Washington Capitals pieces had fallen into place. The team looked in sync, the defense sparkled. Ulf Dahlen added a power-play goal. The crowd of 15,372 at MCI Center cheered as if it were sure the Caps had finally found the combination of play that had eluded them much of this young NHL season.

PITTSBURGH -- The Washington Capitals' run of success was ended at four games when they blew a two-goal lead and lost, 5-3, to the first-place Pittsburgh Penguins at the Civic Arena.Second-period goals by the Penguins' Shawn McEachern, Mario Lemieux and Kevin Stevens turned around a game that had looked like a continuation of the Capitals' Friday night dominance of the Patrick Division leaders.The Capitals (10-13-2) had beaten the Penguins, 6-4, in extending their unbeaten streak to four games (3-0-1)

SPORTS Illustrated reported the results of a survey that asked Olympic hopefuls this question: Would you take a wonder drug that guaranteed an Olympic gold medal but killed you within the week?Over 50 percent of the respondents said yes. Even as a sport psychologist who has worked with scores of athletes, I find it shocking that a healthy, young person would accept death in his or her prime just to win one glorious event -- one time.Winning has become so overvalued in our society that some athletes and coaches will do anything to capture victory, and, sadly, it's not a recent phenomenon.
