WASHINGTON -- Jaromir Jagr hadn't complained once this season and Washington Capitals coach Ron Wilson had rarely unloaded on his team. But last night, after a two-goal lead turned into a 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, both men seemed to have had enough. "Totally dumb, this game," Jagr said. "We were totally dominating. We had a lot of chances -- and then we blew it." The Caps are in a fight for their playoff lives. Last night, against the third-best team in the Eastern Conference, Jagr showed his brilliance in an amazing display of talent and timing in the first period to set up Sergei Gonchar for the game's first goal.

Last game: The San Jose Sharks won their first game for new coach Jim Wiley by defeating the Capitals, 5-3, Saturday night. The Sharks fired coach Kevin Constantine just before the game. Jeff Friesen had two goals, including one on a penalty shot. Friesen was tripped on a breakaway by Brendan Witt in the first period. The game was tied at 2-2 and 3-3 before San Jose scored power-play goals in the third period. The Caps went 1-for-8 on power plays.They said it: "Things like teamwork, accountability and those things have just become words to us."

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals have gone beyond feeling as if they're walking a tightrope on ice skates. Last night, they played with the sense of urgency necessary to climb from three games below .500 and into the playoffs. But the Caps got precious little for it, as Washington lost to the Florida Panthers, 2-1. The Capitals made two - just two - costly mistakes, and that was the difference. And even those two blown coverages by the team's top line of Adam Oates, Jaromir Jagr, Dmitri Khristich, Joe Reekie and Sergei Gonchar that allowed goals by Ivan Novoseltsev and Pavel Bure might have been overcome if not for a stone-wall like performance by Florida goalie Roberto Luongo.

Opponent: Florida PanthersSite: Miami ArenaTime: 7: 30TV/Radio: None/WWLG (1360), WTEM (570)Outlook: The last time these two teams met, Nov. 7, the Capitals were outplayed in the opening period, wasted a terrific goaltending performance by Olie Kolzig and lost, 4-2. Tonight, the game plan is to come out with strong forechecking, get the same strong performance from Kolzig and beat the No. 1 team in the Eastern Conference. The Caps (9-9) come in off a 3-1 victory over Montreal, while the Panthers (11-2-5)

In a recent game, Teemu Selanne, an All-Star right wing with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, was trying to get position near the Washington net, but in his way was Capitals captain Dale Hunter.Selanne, 6 feet, 200 pounds and age 25, tried everything he knew in an effort to shake Hunter.Hunter is 35. He's in his 16th NHL season and he may be only 5-10 and a shade over 190 pounds, but, as Boston Bruins center Adam Oates says, "He hasn't survived this long without being smart."Selanne never did get position.
