With five games left in the regular season, the Capitals have pretty much locked up the Southeast Division title and are likely to secure the second seed in the Eastern Conference. But Washington coach Bruce Boudreau doesn't want his team to let up. " All of these games are important to us ," he told The Washington Post . And it's not because the Capitals trail the Flyers by three points in the conference standings. The Capitals mailed it in down the stretch last season, and were unable to get back on track in the playoffs.

The Capitals are finally clicking with a month remaining in the regular season. They have won five straight games and seven of eight to reclaim the top spot in the Southeast Division, and Monday night's 2-1 shootout victory over the Lightning gave Washington a two-point lead over Tampa Bay. Early returns show that the Capitals are a better team after their trade-deadline dealings. They have won four straight games since acquiring center Jason Arnott and defenseman Dennis Wideman.

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.

PHILADELPHIA — Flyers coach Peter Laviolette likes to remind anyone who asks about his team's ability to handle pressure. "At Christmas time, we were 29th in the league," he said. "We're just a resilient group. We keep pushing. Pressure is more for teams who are expected to win, like the Blackhawks." The seventh-seeded Flyers might just become one of the NHL's classic underdog stories after rallying to even the Stanley Cup finals against the Blackhawks at two games apiece with a 5-3 victory in Game 4 on Friday night at the Wachovia Center.

PHILADELPHIA — The line currently torching the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals was, not too long ago, cinders. From Jan. 23 to March 3, Ville Leino didn't play a game. Scott Hartnell's hair follicles offered more production than his blade. And in terms of full-season output, Danny Briere was at levels not seen since his rookie season. So Flyers coach Peter Laviolette concocted this grouping late in the season because, well, he had to. "When he put us together, there were so many injuries that that's what was left, I guess," Briere said Thursday.

Hawks' Buff too tough Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times Remember this name: Dustin Byfuglien (pronounced BUFF-lin). If the Blackhawks' beefy power forward can be as effective as he was throughout their Western Conference final sweep of the Sharks, the Stanley Cup will reside in Chicago for the first time since 1961. Remember this name: Chris Pronger. Though the Flyers defenseman isn't as mean as he used to be, he's still menacing and might be the only man strong enough to budge Byfuglien away from the net. That could stop Chicago's top line of Byfuglien, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews or create chances for Kane and the magnificent Toews.

The Flyers overcame another 3-0 deficit, and now the Bruins are out of chances. Simon Gagne scored on a power play with 7:08 left Friday night in Boston to cap a comeback from a three-goal deficit and give the Flyers a 4-3 victory and a berth in the Eastern Conference finals that seemed a distant dream after they lost the first three games of the series. For the Bruins, the season will be remembered for their collapse. They're only the third team in NHL history to lose a series after winning the first three games.
