LANDOVER -- Washington Capitals right wing Peter Bondra, the team's leading scorer, suffered a first-degree separation of his left shoulder last night and will be out a week to 10 days.Bondra was being responsible on defense in the first period against the Flyers. He had hounded center Craig MacTavish into the corner and blanketed him as he tried to move the puck along the boards behind the Capitals' net with 10:16 to play.But when MacTavish turned, his right elbow found leverage under Bondra's shoulder, and the Capitals forward was flipped to the ice, falling on his shoulder.

WASHINGTON - Peter Bondra had worked hard all night, taking chances, playing defense, helping to negate a major penalty by drawing the opposition into a slashing penalty on a breakaway. So maybe it was just that as the final minute was being played Bondra found himself at the far post and in the perfect position to knock in the Washington Capitals' game-winning goal against the Montreal Canadiens. "Sometimes it takes being in the right spot at the right time," Bondra, the Caps' all-time leader in points, and power-play, short-handed and game-winning goals, said after his goal with 53.8 seconds left gave the Caps the 3-2 win. "Goal scorers - not that I'm calling myself a goal scorer, but if you work hard, the puck will find you, sooner or later for the good of the team."

LANDOVER -- If the Washington Capitals keep this up, they may have to worry about how to make ice at USAir Arena in May and June.They faced the winningest team in the NHL last night with an injury-driven lineup -- and won, 6-4, over the Quebec Nordiques.To do it, they used a two-goal performance by Peter Bondra, who has 14 goals this month, and a hard-working defense."We knew what to expect," said Quebec leading scorer Joe Sakic, who was shut out last night and on the ice for every Capitals goal.

Peter Bondra's teammates call him "Banzai" because he looks like a speeding locomotive as his legs power him down the ice for a head-on confrontation with an opposing goalie.These days it is a wonderful sight for the Washington Capitals, who have seen him break out of a slump that seemed to stretch back to his 1992-93 All-Star season."He's hot," said Washington captain Dale Hunter. "He has 18 goals, and that's not just because he has regained his scoring touch. I think he's improved as a player as a whole.

The two combined for Washington's first goal as well, when Bondra assisted on Pivonka's short-handed goal in the first period.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals had hoped to simply keep their momentum for the playoffs that begin this week and escape this game with the Pittsburgh Penguins without injury. Instead, the Capitals gave themselves a wonderful injection of confidence, fighting back from a two-goal deficit and winning with a three-goal outburst with 1:32 to go for a 5-3 victory last night. Peter Bondra, who had two goals last night, set a franchise record for career points with 790, breaking Mike Gartner's record set from 1979 to 1989.

WASHINGTON - Peter Bondra's skate slipped as he was about to leap in jubilation last night, but it didn't curtail his celebration, as the Washington Capitals wing wrapped himself in the arms of his teammates, rejoicing in his power-play goal that beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-1, in overtime. In one of the most intense games of the season, the Caps rallied in the third period on Robert Lang's goal to overcome a goal their goalie believed was illegal and beat a team ranked above them in the NHL standings for the first time since Dec. 27. Part of the payoff was two points in the standings to stretch their Southeast Division lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning to three points with 11 games to play.

WASHINGTON - It was a two-on-one counterattack, coming off a strong defensive play at 1:32 of the second period, and Washington right wing Peter Bondra was in control. The puck was on his stick as he and Jeff Halpern charged hard toward the New York Islanders' net. "I'm going to give it to you," Bondra yelled. "No, no! You shoot," Halpern yelled back. On his 35th birthday, Bondra had a surprise of his own. "You have to make the goalie think there is another player," Bondra said last night in a 3-0 Caps win. Islanders goalie Garth Snow kept his eyes on Bondra as long as he could, but Bondra continued to look at Halpern and, eventually, so did Snow (21 saves)

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals entered last night's game against the Atlanta Thrashers with everything to prove. They had lost in Atlanta five days ago to a team that was - at the time - the worst in the NHL. Then they surprised many people by beating the Pittsburgh Penguins, a playoff-caliber team, with one of their best performances of the season. Last night at MCI Center, the Capitals' Michael Nylander scored the game-winning goal in overtime for an unlikely 7-6 victory that left the team and its coach still searching for answers.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals had won only once in their previous seven games, and general manager George McPhee was willing to try anything. Riding up toward the press box on the elevator before the game, McPhee asked the elevator operator to let him off on the third floor, a few floors early. "I've got a special box there," he said. "Whenever I sit in it, we win." Last night, with McPhee in his lucky seat, and the Capitals playing without three top forwards - Jaromir Jagr, Peter Bondra and Dainius Zubrus - Washington surprised even its coach by beating the Calgary Flames, 4-2. To do it, the Caps used an offensive outburst by defenseman Sergei Gonchar (two goals)

WASHINGTON - Peter Bondra had a quiet night until with 1:12 to go against the hot Tampa Bay Lightning, he scored on a two-man advantage to give the Washington Capitals a 3-2 victory at MCI Center. "It definitely feels good," said Bondra of the victory that broke a four-game winless streak and restored the Caps to .500 at 5-5-1. "I think we played well for 60 minutes." In fact, the Capitals looked like a totally different club from the one that had been blown away by the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night in a 7-2 fiasco that left everyone feeling frustrated.

WASHINGTON - Opening night deserved something special. So with the score tied early in the third period, Washington Capital Peter Bondra picked off a puck in the neutral zone and zoomed toward the Nashville goal. He was hooked a bit on the way, but that didn't stop him. And when he missed the net with a big slap shot, that didn't stop him, either. The puck banged into the glass and before Predator goalie Mike Dunham knew what hit him, the puck had bounced off his back and rebounded into the goal.
