Former Washington Capitals great Dale Hunter earned the applause of the sellout crowd Tuesday night at Verizon Center for his NHL coaching debut behind the home team's bench. There were video montages of his fights and goals, replays of Hunter's memorable playoff goal in 1988 against the Philadelphia Flyers and No. 32 jerseys in the seats. But by the midway point of their game against the St. Louis Blues, nostalgia gave way to the realization that there is plenty of work for Hunter and the Capitals to do. St. Louis spoiled his return by capturing a 2-1 victory over the Capitals, who have suffered three straight defeats and are 2-6-0 in their past eight games.

Green, Orange and Purple. All good. It's now time for a Blue Line on the Charm City Circulator ("Free bus service adds line from Hopkins Hospital to downtown," Nov. 2). I have had the occasion to ride on all three and it is truly a benefit. I would like to suggest the Blue Line would travel a route from City Hall and downtown down Eutaw Street to the state office complex. The existing Mass Transit Administration bus service on Eutaw Street may be second worst only to North Avenue.

McCAYSVILLE, GA./COPPERHILL, TENN. -- There's a new line in town.You see it slice through the Hometown Foods IGA and its parking lot, then continue diagonally across the street before scaling the yellow brick building that houses the Copper Emporium furniture store. The long blue line isn't just the talk of the town; it's the talk of two states.Here in the Copper Basin, known now for tourism and whitewater rafting instead of its once-flourishing copper industry, the North Georgia town of McCaysville (population 1,062)

For want of a better name, call it the Plug Line, J. F. Jomphe centering wings Mike Maneluk and Dwayne Norris. This trio of hustlers had another big night, scoring a couple of goals and picking up three assists as the Bandits beat the Fredericton Canadiens, 6-3, last night in an American Hockey League game at the Baltimore Arena.Playing on the power play, as penalty killers, on regular shifts and long shifts, the Pluggers never let up, much to the delight of the 4,562 fans.It was the Bandits' fourth win at home in seven tries, hinting again that the team is a Jekyll-and-Hyde operation because its road record is 0-7-2.

Metro's handling of weekend closures on the Orange and Blue lines drew mixed reviews Monday from riders who complained of confusion and longer travel times but also praised Metro workers for being helpful. Signs at several stations were not displaying line or destination information; instead trains were labeled "special" and platform displays simply read "train. " "The trains were not clearly marked where they were going," said Peter Rothschild, a computer security analyst who commutes from Capitol Hill to Clarendon, Va. Rothschild said that neither a station manager or a train operator at Pentagon Station could tell him where a train marked "special" was going.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals were on a power play in the third period and Peter Bondra was almost on the blue line when he misread the puck and let it slip away. In an instant, Boston's Brian Rolston had started a fast break toward the Caps goal and Andrei Kovalenko was ready to put it away. It could have been a backbreaker. The short-handed goal tied the game, wiping out two periods of hard work. And earlier this season, it might have doomed the Capitals, who have struggled to find solid footing in this slippery game of hockey.

WASHINGTON — Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau knew Nicklas Backstrom wouldn't remain without a point for long, and he's sure that Washington's struggling power play will eventually come around. Backstrom deflected in Alex Ovechkin's drive on a man advantage with 3:39 left, lifting the Capitals to a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Wednesday night. With New York's Blake Comeau off for roughing, Ovechkin whistled a long-range shot from just inside the blue line that tipped off Backstrom's foot and past Dwayne Roloson for his first goal of the season and Washington's third straight victory.

The bristling New York cop movie Pride and Glory boasts more than A+ street smarts. It overflows with a combustible blend of street sensitivity and testosterone. In his first film since his sensational Olympic hockey movie Miracles, director Gavin O'Connor (who co-wrote the script with Joe Carnahan), has crafted a tale about a bred-to-the-blue policeman that captures the richness and the insularity of police work when it's done as a family business. Edward Norton is at his veracious best as Ray Tierney, a New York cop pulled into a task force investigating a Washington Heights shoot-out that took down four fellow officers.

ATLANTA -- A river runs through it.In this landlocked city, the "river" is a thin, blue line, a 26.2-mile streak of paint marking the route that the world's top marathoners will follow when the Olympic Games that begin tonight head toward the finish line in their event.It is a route that takes them from the cradle of the civil rights movement to the lingering ghosts of the Civil War. It leads past both classically Southern, white-columned homes and glassy, nouveau Southern skyscrapers. There are stretches where you could be nowhere else in the world, and others that plunk you in generic Starbucksville.
