The The New York Rangers arrived in Washington a road-weary and wayward bunch, allowing an NHL-high five goals per game and unable to establish any consistency under their new head coach. But some habits, like rendering the Capitals ineffective, appear as intact as ever. The Capitals spent most of Wednesday night's contest committing turnovers and chasing New York around the defensive zone, as they followed up their first regulation win with a dud. Washington fell, 2-0, at Verizon Center received a harsh reminder there is still much to improve upon as they were thwarted, again, by the Rangers.

Arden Smith is a soft-spoken sophomore forward playing in her first year of varsity for the Broadneck girls soccer team. But her right foot boomed loudly Thursday at South River. Smith cleanly struck a shot from 18 yards that quickly found the top-right corner of the Seahawks' net, providing the overtime golden goal that gave the No. 15 Bruins a 2-1 upset win over No. 10 South River in Anne Arundel County play. Sophomore Caitlyn Shea sent a long ball from midfield to junior Emily Lord, who settled and then nudged a short pass across to Smith.

This hasn't been an easy Stanley Cup finals for goalies. The wide-open play has led to 40 goals, most through the first five games of the finals since the Islanders and North Stars combined for 42 in 1981 and most in a finals series of any length since the Rangers and Canucks had 40 in seven games in 1994. "I don't think we envisioned scoring at the rate we're scoring at," said Hawks coach Joel Quenneville, whose team has 21 goals to 19 for the Flyers. While Quenneville has stuck with Antti Niemi despite the occasional soft goal, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette has yanked starter Michael Leighton in Games 1 and 5. It is the first time a goalie has been pulled twice in the finals since North Stars coach Bob Gainey did it to Jon Casey during the last two games in 1991.
