Chris Phillips was eager to get on the scoreboard, and his timing was just right for the Ottawa Senators. With Ottawa's leading scorer sidelined, Phillips scored his first goal of the season in the first period, sparking the Senators to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals at MCI Center last night. Patrick Eaves added a goal in the second period and Peter Schaefer sealed the win with an empty-net score with 22 seconds left to help the Senators improve their NHL-best point total to 59. Dominik Hasek had 23 saves.

NAGANO, Japan -- He's Randy Johnson in a short series, only 11 inches shorter. He's Michael Jordan in the NBA Finals, only with even less of a supporting cast, except for Jaromir Jagr playing the role of Scottie Pippen.He's Dominik Hasek, goaltender for the Czech Republic men's ice hockey team. He's "The Dominator," the most feared player in the Olympic men's hockey tournament."A goalie cannot win the game," he says. "That is impossible."Perhaps, but there is no psychological barrier in sports quite like the hot goaltender, no mountain as high, no ocean as wide, no road as impenetrable.

Dominik Hasek apparently is taking his Stanley Cup and going home. The Detroit Red Wings star has informed the club that he will retire and return to his native Czech Republic, ending a career that included six Vezina Trophies as the NHL's top goaltender and two Hart Trophies as the league's most valuable player, sources said Saturday. Those awards were won with the Buffalo Sabres, but it wasn't until he was traded to the Red Wings that he finally won the Stanley Cup this month. Neither Detroit general manager Ken Holland nor agent Rich Winter denied the goalie's plans, but each insisted no decision was final.

NAGANO, Japan -- Czech defenseman Petr Svoboda had tears in his eyes as the shiny gold medal was slipped around his neck. Goaltender Dominik Hasek held his medal up for the crowd at Big Hat arena -- and all the hockey world -- to see."It's unbelievable," Martin Rucinsky said, clutching a bottle of champagne. "I can't even say anything now. I've got the gold medal. I'm the most happiest person in the world."In the first Olympic hockey tournament to showcase NHL stars, the Czech Republic -- which had the fewest current NHL players, 11, of the six "dream teams" -- stole the show from the Canadians, Americans and Swedes.

WASHINGTON -- If this was a normal hockey game, the Washington Capitals would have been away like a shot the way Adam Oates was setting up his teammates for almost certain goals in the first 20 minutes of play last night.But normal games aren't played in late May, not when the Capitals are playing the Buffalo Sabres in the Eastern Conference finals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Dominik Hasek is in goal.No doubt a bit frustrated and/or intimidated when a trio of golden scoring opportunities were swallowed up by Hasek in the first period, the Caps lapsed badly in the first two minutes of the middle period.

RALEIGH, N.C. - They were supposed to be worn out by now and too old to make a difference. But as the playoff marathon reaches its home stretch, Detroit's elder statesmen haven't gotten older, they've gotten better. Igor Larionov and Brett Hull spoiled the party in Raleigh last night for the second straight game and even slumping Brendan Shanahan found the back of the net as the Red Wings moved one step closer to their third Stanley Cup in the last six years with a 3-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 4 of the Finals.

DETROIT - Fifty-eight seconds into overtime last night, any illusions anyone had that Carolina couldn't win in the Stanley Cup Finals evaporated. Jeff O'Neill threw the puck in front, and Ron Francis redirected it past Dominik Hasek, giving the Hurricanes a 3-2 victory in the series opener. The Hurricanes improved to 7-1 in overtime; the Wings fell to 1-4. Twice, the Wings took a lead. Twice, the Hurricanes came back. Sergei Fedorov scored on the power play, then Sean Hull scored on a two-man advantage.

DALLAS -- Ed Belfour, the Dallas goalie, goes by the nickname the Eagle, and he wears the image of the bird on his head gear. Dominik Hasek, the Buffalo goalie known as the Dominator, wears an old-fashioned mask often called a "bird cage."This aviary rivalry goes back a decade, and Hasek flew highest last night in the opening game of the Stanley Cup Finals as his Sabres stunned the Stars, 3-2, in overtime at Reunion Arena.The winning goal was scored by Jason Woolley at 15: 30 of the extra session after Hasek made two stunning saves.

WASHINGTON -- It was the kind of game that Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig has thought about more than once through his years in Washington. The kind in which his team outplays the other for hours, only to allow the opposition to score a late goal and break the Caps' hearts.Last night was that kind of game.Washington controlled every little movement. Dominated every aspect of the game -- even outshooting the opposition by double figures. But the Caps could not break the will of the Buffalo Sabres' amazing goalie, Dominik Hasek.

WASHINGTON -- A hustling play by a couple of the lesser lights of the Washington Capitals, Todd Krygier and Andrei Nikolishin, resulted in a goal and a 3-2 victory over Buffalo after three minutes of overtime last night.The win evened the Eastern Conference final series at one apiece as the teams head for Buffalo and Game 3 on Thursday night.Nikolishin outhustled two Sabres defensemen in the corner to Buffalo goalie Dominik Hasek's left and somehow hit Krygier with a backhand pass in the slot about 15 feet in front of Hasek.
