If goaltender Olie Kolzig had been asked last winter whether he'd be with the Washington Capitals today, the 23-year-old would have said no."I'd be lying if I told you anything else," Kolzig said yesterday. "I thought my career with the Capitals was over when they sent me to Rochester last year, because it wasn't their No. 1 farm team."But here he is, in a neck-and-neck race with fellow Capitals rookie Byron Dafoe for the backup goalie position. Tonight, Kolzig expects to play against the Philadelphia Flyers in Washington's only preseason game at USAir Arena.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals got two goals, from Donald Brashear and David Steckel in the third period, and Olie Kolzig made 18 saves in a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche last night. The game was scoreless until Brashear scored 2:51 into the third period. Matt Bradley skated from behind the net and directed a pass to Brooks Laich, whose shot from the left circle was tipped past Jose Theodore by Brashear. With 3:59 left, Steckel tapped the puck off a Colorado defender and past an out-of-position Theodore, who made 21 saves, for a 2-0 lead.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals, perfecting minimalist hockey, moved into the Eastern Conference finals last night for only the second time in franchise history, earning a meeting with the Buffalo Sabres.A second-period goal by Joe Juneau and another sterling performance by goalie Olie Kolzig were all the Caps needed, but Sergei Gonchar added a breathing-room, power-play goal with 1: 26 left in the third and Calle Johansson scored into an empty net with 17.5 seconds to play as the Caps beat the Ottawa Senators, 3-0, and set off a massive celebration among the sellout crowd of 19,740 at the MCI Center.

When the Washington Capitals opened training camp last month, it was with the understanding that goalie Jim Carey, off his sensational performance of last season, was the No. 1 goalie in camp.Even goalie Olie Kolzig, who started last night in Washington's final preseason game in Greensboro, N.C., against the Florida Panthers, said that was the view he took when he came to camp.And even though it is still Kolzig's view, coach Jim Schoenfeld TTC says he has not decided who will start Saturday in the season opener against the St. Louis Blues at USAir Arena.

LANDOVER -- When the Washington Capitals traded for Joe Juneau in March 1994, they traded for a superb setup man while hoping they were getting a major goal scorer.For two seasons, Juneau wrestled with the disparity. This season, he came in committed to shooting more. Friday night, his determination produced his first three-goal game as a Capital. Combined with a brilliant 39-save performance by Olie Kolzig, it produced a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.Defenseman Sergei Gonchar scored Washington's fourth goal.

WASHINGTON - Peter Bondra's skate slipped as he was about to leap in jubilation last night, but it didn't curtail his celebration, as the Washington Capitals wing wrapped himself in the arms of his teammates, rejoicing in his power-play goal that beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-1, in overtime. In one of the most intense games of the season, the Caps rallied in the third period on Robert Lang's goal to overcome a goal their goalie believed was illegal and beat a team ranked above them in the NHL standings for the first time since Dec. 27. Part of the payoff was two points in the standings to stretch their Southeast Division lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning to three points with 11 games to play.

Rookie defenseman Andrej Meszaros had three assists, Ray Emery made 30 saves, and the host Ottawa Senators scored five special-teams goals in a 7-1 victory over the Washington Capitals last night. Washington rookie sensation Alexander Ovechkin scored his 38th goal with 5:07 remaining in the third to spoil Emery's shutout bid. Emery won for the second straight night since taking over for the injured Dominik Hasek. Leading 4-0 in Pittsburgh the night before, Ottawa held on to beat the Penguins in its first game after the Olympic break despite having its rookie goalie allow three third-period goals.

Alex Ovechkin scored the only shootout goal last night, lifting the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the visiting Atlanta Thrashers. Ovechkin, Washington's first shooter, deked goalie Mike Dunham off his skates and then pushed the puck under his right leg. "He had three or four moves in the space of four or five feet," Washington coach Glen Hanlon said. "Pretty impressive." "I was lucky," Ovechkin said. Luckier than the Thrashers, who couldn't coax a goal out of their snipers, much to the dismay of coach Bob Hartley.

The sounds of family life rattled in the background as Washington Capitals defenseman Jason Doig talked about what he is doing during the National Hockey League's lockout, which has discontinued the game for the foreseeable future. "We're about to have lunch," Doig said during a phone conversation last week, as his wife, Faye, set the table and their children, Jaggar, 11 months, and Kyla, 3 1/2 years, clamored. He and his family are living in an apartment in Baltimore while he is in rehab at the Maryland Sports Care and Rehab Clinic in Westminster for a wrist injury he suffered near the end of last season.

WASHINGTON - Buffalo's Miroslav Satan saw Washington Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig leave the net and go after the loose puck behind and to the left of the goal and decided to follow him. "I knew what he was going to do," Satan said. "I knew he'd send it around behind the net, but I didn't expect him to misfire on it. I thought he'd send it round along the boards. That's when I got lucky." Satan intercepted the bouncing puck intended for Caps defenseman Joel Kwiatkowski, swung around to the front of the net and tucked it in. The first-period goal wasn't the game-winner, but it was the one that changed the flow of the game and eventually led to Buffalo's 3-1 victory.

WASHINGTON - Peter Bondra had worked hard all night, taking chances, playing defense, helping to negate a major penalty by drawing the opposition into a slashing penalty on a breakaway. So maybe it was just that as the final minute was being played Bondra found himself at the far post and in the perfect position to knock in the Washington Capitals' game-winning goal against the Montreal Canadiens. "Sometimes it takes being in the right spot at the right time," Bondra, the Caps' all-time leader in points, and power-play, short-handed and game-winning goals, said after his goal with 53.8 seconds left gave the Caps the 3-2 win. "Goal scorers - not that I'm calling myself a goal scorer, but if you work hard, the puck will find you, sooner or later for the good of the team."

WASHINGTON - Overtime was winding down and the Toronto Maple Leafs were on the power play, charging toward Washington Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig. Kolzig, who has felt the strain of the Capitals' losing record and sat out two games partly because of it and partly due to a slight groin injury, had made some easy saves look difficult last night and some hard ones look easy. But now, the game was on the line and the goalie, feeling the pain of the worst season in his career, was looking Joe Nieuwendyk square in the eyes.

WASHINGTON - Washington Capitals goaltender Olie Kolzig propped his right elbow on the crossbar after making back-to-back toe saves in the second period last night and just stood there, his knee bent, his hip jutting out as if to make a hip-check. If a stationary pose can convey swagger, Kolzig's did. It also reflected the new-found confidence of his Caps teammates as they head into a 2 1/2 -day Christmas break after a 3-0 victory over the Southeast Division co-leading Tampa Bay Lightning.

WASHINGTON - Playing without starting goaltender Olie Kolzig, the Washington Capitals were helpless and embarrassed last night by the surging Boston Bruins, who got seven goals from seven different players for a 7-2 victory. Continuing a hot early season performance, the Bruins scored four times before the second period was two minutes old and chased backup goalie Craig Billington to the showers for the second time this season. But the loss could not be pinned totally on goaltending. The Capitals went 1-for-8 on the power play and seemed to simply dissolve on defense.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals were trying desperately to break a seven-game winless streak last night when Sergei Fedorov took a seemingly harmless shot at 4:23 of the second period, to stake the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim to a lead it would build into a 4-2 victory. The Capitals were doing well to that point. The game was tied, 1-1, when Fedorov's shot somehow slipped through goalie Olie Kolzig's legs, dawdled into the back of the Capitals' net and opened the gates for Anaheim. Kolzig, who has been haunted by near misses this season, did not answer questions after the game at MCI Center.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals enter their 30th season tonight with their youngest, most inexperienced defense in decades but with hope that a youthful, faster team can overcome its limitations through resolve and cohesiveness. "We have a lot of unknowns," said goalie Olie Kolzig, who is entering his 10th full-time NHL season. "It's the most uncertainty, the most lack of experience defensively since I've been here. ... A lot of people are not predicting good things for us. But we still have some of the best forwards in the league, and if we buy in defensively as a team, we can overcome a lot of individual mistakes.
