No one could have imagined when Washington began its NHL postseason series against the Pittsburgh Penguins that one of the Capitals' major trouble spots would be No. 1 goalie Jim Carey.Carey had been their ace all season, anchoring the third-best defense in the league. But Carey's accomplishments were ripped apart in short order by the Penguins, who unmasked him for 10 goals on 39 shots in the series."No excuses," Carey said. "That's the bottom line."The Capitals won the first two games of the series and then lost four straight, getting eliminated Sunday.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals returned to the ice for the first time in a week last night, strong and determined. But that didn't help them much against the Buffalo Sabres, who had a brick wall named Dominik Hasek in goal, and the result was a 4-1 Sabres victory.Hasek stopped all but one of Washington's 32 shots, which was good enough to send the Capitals to their fourth loss in five games, this one before an announced sellout crowd of 18,130 at USAir Arena.Added to the misery of the defeat was the loss of Sylvain Cote, one of the Caps' top four defensemen, who collided with Buffalo's Michael Peca and tore the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

They referred to him as Paul's little brother. He was about 6 years younger than they were, but he could keep up. So, they let him play.Jim Carey, 20, still hangs with the big boys. The Washington Capitals rookie goaltending sensation earned NHL Player of the Month honors in March, the same month he was called up from the minors, and resurrected the team's playoff hopes. He also turned the tables on older brother Paul, a member of the Orioles' 40-man roster and a Triple-A Rochester Red Wings first baseman.

LANDOVER -- The Colorado Avalanche, its lineup filled with goal-scorers, spent most of the third period in the Washington zone last night as USAir Arena, putting shots on goal, testing Jim Carey's reflexes and the Capitals' defense.But the Capitals came out on top in the nerve-jangling game, notching their second win of the season, 3-1, as the sparse crowd, announced at 9,742, chanted what sounded like, "We want Bondra."The Caps (2-1) will play here again tonight, meeting the Tampa Bay Lightning at 7:30.

LANDOVER -- It's anyone's guess what was included in the game plan the Hartford Whalers carried into their meeting with the Washington Capitals last night.One thing is certain: It had little if anything to do with playing hockey.Seemingly content to rough it up any time they got the chance, the Whalers fell easy prey to the Caps, 3-0, once Washington decided not to mirror Hartford's ragged play.It was Keith Jones' kind of game, lots of action in front of the goal, and the hard-working right wing took full advantage by scoring the Caps' first and third goals.

LANDOVER -- Let's see. Jim Carey? Olie Kolzig? Olie Kolzig? Jim Carey? Who to start in goal for the Washington Capitals tonight in Game 4? It's called keep 'em guessing, and it's a game that Capitals coach Jim Schoenfeld delights in.He knows, but isn't telling.Why?Now, there's a question. For days -- actually, for years -- Schoenfeld has said he doesn't want to give the opposing team an edge. Instead, he'd rather just give it one more thing to wonder about.And yesterday, while saying Pittsburgh doesn't care who the Capitals have in goal, the Penguins were wondering.

LANDOVER - A few days ago, Washington Capitals general manager David Poile talked about the drive to the postseason and about how no one yet knew which of the Caps players would step up and lead the team in its time of need.With 10 games to go in the regular season and Washington's playoff hopes fast slipping away, Poile and the Caps got only part of the answer and wound up with a 2-2 tie against the Hartford Whalers last night.With the Caps trailing 2-1 in the third period, Peter Bondra, with assists from Michal Pivonka and Sylvain Cote, came up with the tying goal with 9: 51 left.

LANDOVER - One night the Washington Capitals are setting records for shutout scoring margins and the next, they're losing, 5-2, to the suddenly inspired Boston Bruins.The best news for the Capitals, in a three-way tie with the Montreal Canadiens and Bruins for the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, is that they don't lose points for a defeat."We have to do it the team way and tonight we didn't," Washington coach Jim Schoenfeld said. "We've got three weeks to go to the end of the season, but from the immediacy of it, it's a real big loss because they were a team behind us and we could have put four points between us. But there are still 14 games left, that's 28 points available.
