Skipjacks goaltender Byron Dafoe is doubtful for tomorrow night's game at Hershey because of a sprained left ankle.Dafoe was injured during Friday's home game against Utica and missed games at Utica and at New Haven the next two nights. Duane Derksen filled in at Utica (win) and at New Haven (tie).Dafoe also is questionable for Saturday's game against Cape Breton at the Baltimore Arena. "He could be ready then or he could be out two or three weeks," Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz said. "It's one of those ankle injuries that's day to day."

Max Schreck endures as one of cinema's most bizarre-looking icons, one Willem Dafoe acknowledges he was a natural to play. "Steven Katz says he wrote it for me," Dafoe says, referring to the role of Schreck in director E. Elias Merhige's "Shadow of the Vampire." The new film imagines that Schreck, star of F.W. Murnau's surrealistic 1922 "Dracula" clone, "Nosferatu," really was a vampire, and that all the work that went into making him look so archetypically demonic was really no work at all. Now, some actors might not take such a connection to Schreck as a compliment.

Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz started Byron Dafoe in goal on a hunch.

The Skipjacks had lost two straight and Halifax was unbeaten in its past four.Dafoe had come on in relief of Duane Derksen on Friday night in the first period against Fredericton and allowed only one goal, leading Trotz to start him last night."Maybe he can build on that," Trotz said before the game.

OTTAWA -- The Washington Capitals are still looking for their first road victory of the season.But last night's 5-5 tie against the Ottawa Senators easily could have been a loss.There were only 24 seconds remaining in regulation time -- with goalie Byron Dafoe pulled for an extra skater -- when Caps forward Dimitri Khristich scored his second goal to tie the score in a wild, five-goal third period.Then, with less than two minutes remaining in overtime, Ottawa appeared to win it again when Troy Murray deflected a puck past Dafoe.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- At least the Washington Capitals can say they've seen their worst road trip of this season.They wrapped up a disaster of a five-game excursion last night with a 4-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils, yielding two goals in the first 10 minutes and never recovering.Thus they completed their longest trip of the season with only one point. From now on, they will play no more than two straight on the road, a good thing since they have gone 0-6-2 away from home in this revised schedule.

CBS' two-night "Million Dollar Babies" seems tailor-made for Newt Gingrich.The next speaker of the House looked at "Forrest Gump" and the Susan Smith case and saw reasons to vote Republican. Imagine then what he could do with this story:A hard-working father and stay-at-home mother seem the object of a miracle when the mother gives birth to quintuplets. The family and its plain-spoken doctor at first become darlings of the media, but cynical reporters and a selfish government attack the family.

For the four goalies fighting for two spots on the Washington Capitals' roster, the battle is down to the last 60 minutes.The Caps play their final preseason game tonight, and coach Jim Schoenfeld could announce his decision as early as tomorrow.Schoenfeld will choose among seasoned Don Beaupre, youthful veteran Rick Tabaracci and developing Olie Kolzig and Byron Dafoe.Against the Quebec Nordiques tonight, Tabaracci is likely to get most of the work because, having been injured, he has had the least chance to demonstrate what he can do."
