WASHINGTON - Sometimes, you have to go backward before going forward, and the Washington Capitals fans who braved the snow warnings to come to MCI Center last night certainly hope forward progress will come soon. It didn't, however, come in leaps and bounds last night. The Capitals were playing their second game, and their first at home, since trading All-Star forward Jaromir Jagr to the New York Rangers on Friday, and they looked like a team in search of a leader. Washington struggled offensively (managing just one shot in the first nine minutes of each period)

Opponent: Philadelphia FlyersSite: CoreStates Spectrum, PhiladelphiaTime: 7:30Radio: WMAL (630 AM)Outlook: Washington, 0-4-2 on the road this season, plays its fourth away game in seven days. Washington's offense is the most unproductive in the NHL, scoring 17 goals, including six on this trip. With a 3-1 victory over New Jersey on Saturday, Philadelphia (4-7-1) ended a two-game losing streak and earned its first win in six road games. The Flyers also stopped a 13-game winless string (0-12-1)

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Montreal Canadiens coach Jacques Demers calls John LeClair "Long John, the Mountain Man."LeClair's playoff beard certainly makes him look the part; he could have carried a musket for the Green Mountain Boys a couple hundred years ago in his native Vermont.Long John has pulled the Canadiens to within one victory of their 24th Stanley Cup after scoring Monday night in overtime -- for the second successive game -- to give Montreal a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings and a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series, with Game 5 set for Montreal tonight.

FREDERICTON, New Brunswick -- The Skipjacks didn't even have the strength to bail as they continued to founder in the Atlantic yesterday.The Fredericton Canadiens swamped the lethargic Skipjacks, 6-2, before 3,057 at the Aitken Centre. It was Baltimore's third loss in as many nights on its late-season swing through the AHL's Atlantic Division."We're trying our best and we're banged up really bad, that's all I can say," said Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz. "We're dead emotionally and physically.

LANDOVER -- Kevin Kaminski scored his first goal of the season yesterday, Jim Carey recorded his second shutout in two days, and the Washington Capitals got a five-day break.All in all, it was a pretty good day for the Capitals, who defeated the Philadelphia Flyers, 3-0, before a sellout crowd of 18,130 at USAir Arena."We kept looking at what a blessing this break was going to be, and now we're playing so well, you almost wish you could continue," said Caps coach Jim Schoenfeld, whose team is 3-0-1 in its past four games.

At the NHL All-Star Game last month, everyone talked about how lucky Washington Capitals right wing Peter Bondra was to be playing on a line with Eric Lindros and John LeClair. No one considered that Lindros and LeClair might have been the lucky ones.Bondra won the league's goal-scoring title during the 1995 lockout-shortened season and leads the Capitals in scoring this season with 32 goals and 56 points, but he remains the NHL's most unrecognized offensive force."Yeah, I won the goal scoring, but it was short season," Bondra said.
