NEW YORK -- As Mario Lemieux begins intensive, exhaustive treatment that is bound to weaken even the greatest hockey player in the world, doctors and people who have overcome Hodgkin's disease assert he has a good chance to recover and rejoin the Pittsburgh Penguins -- a team that is used to a mix of hockey and reality.Lemieux, who was found to have the cancer this week and has started radiation treatment, spent an hour yesterday customarily leading the team he has helped carry to two straight Stanley Cup championships.

Robert Lemieux, who as chairman of the communications department at McDaniel College in Westminster should have better things to do, notes that today, April 19, and yesterday are special dates in the annals of Baltimore weather trivia. They share the oldest temperature extremes for the city - 111 years with neither a record high nor low. The long-standing records for the 18th are 94 (1896) and 26 (1875). The extremes for the 19th are 93 (1896) and 24 (1875). Who knew? Lemieux!

Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Mario Lemieux did a very uncharacteristic thing during Wednesday night's NHL Eastern Conference quarterfinal game against the Washington Capitals.He used a two-handed slash across the back of Todd Krygier's left leg to fell the Capitals' left wing like a Christmas tree, then jumped on his back and began beating him up.The incident occurred in the second period, after Lemieux and Krygier had slammed into each other near the boards at USAir Arena."I think Mario should be suspended," Krygier said.

Mario Lemieux has surprised us before. In 1995, he came back from cancer to regain his status as hockey's most scintillating scorer. In 2000, he returned from a three-year retirement (he had already been elected to the Hall of Fame) to lead Pittsburgh back to the NHL playoffs. He was the Michael Jordan of hockey, one whose skills seemed so sublime that no barrier could hold him back. But Lemieux sounded out of surprises when he announced his second retirement yesterday afternoon. He said he could no longer play to his own standards and called the NHL "a league for young guys."

PITTSBURGH -- Too much Mario Lemieux. Not enough Jeremy Roenick and Steve Larmer.That has been the story of a Stanley Cup championship series that will end soon unless the scenario changes.Lemieux scored a pair of second-period goals and the Penguins played surprisingly strong defense the rest of the way last night to pin a 3-1 defeat on the Chicago Blackhawks before a sellout crowd of 16,164 at the Civic Arena.In stretching their win streak to nine games, the Penguins grabbed a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven final that moves to Chicago Stadium for games tomorrow and Monday.

PITTSBURGH -- Speaking in his characteristically dispassionate voice and showing no outward sign of distress, hockey great Mario Lemieux discussed his battle with a life-threatening disease before a packed news conference yesterday morning.Lemieux, who learned he had a form of Hodgkin's disease on Monday, said yesterday: "I've faced a lot of adversity in my life and always come out on top. That's what I expect with this."Lemieux, 28, led the Pittsburgh Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cup championships the past two seasons and was far ahead in the NHL scoring race when he was sidelined two weeks ago because of periodic back pain.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- He has played just twice in a year, but it's evident that Mario Lemieux didn't lose his scoring touch -- or his magic touch -- during his long layoff.Lemieux, playing his first home game since March 31, tied the score with 5 minutes, 21 seconds remaining and rookie defenseman Paul Stanton won it 2:46 into overtime, rallying the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals last night."We know he's going to get big goals, so what he does doesn't surprise us," Kevin Stevens said of Lemieux, who was out with a back injury.

PITTSBURGH -- This was the day he was due back. The Pittsburgh Penguins were staring at a nasty stretch of four consecutive games against Patrick Division rivals and, conveniently enough, Mario Lemieux's back figured to be rested and ready for the test.But the NHL never has been known for convenience. More important, neither has Hodgkin's disease, which doctors diagnosed in Lemieux two weeks ago, while he was resting his ailing back.About two weeks have passed since the stunning news of Lemieux's illness was made public.

Defenseman Marek Zidlicky had two power-play goals in the first period, and Scott Sullivan added one in the third to lift the Nashville Predators to a 5-2 victory over the Washington Capitals at the MCI Center last night. Washington (9-15-2), which has lost six of seven, scored on one of 10 power-play chances. They entered the game ranked 29th in power plays. "When you have a 12.3 percent power play, there's going to be some times out there where it just looks disjointed and dysfunctional and that's just where we're at," Washington coach Glen Hanlon said.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Yesterday was Groundhog Day in the NHL, and in a facsimile of Wednesday, there was no progress to report and the 2004-05 season remained ... canceled. Proving untrue the old adage, "Any PR is good PR," the NHL and its players association looked foolish yesterday when one day after it appeared there would be an unexpected "un-canceling" of the season, even the Great One and Super Mario weren't enough to bridge the gap toward a new collective bargaining agreement.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - In what could culminate one of the most bizarre about-faces in the history of professional sports, there's still a chance NHL commissioner Gary Bettman could soon call a news conference, stand behind a podium and blurt out, "Just kidding!" The NHL players association confirmed last night that representatives would be in New York today to meet with the NHL, which requested the meeting Thursday night. Multiple sources said last night that the NHLPA, after receiving immense pressure from several of its influential constituents, planned to present various proposals and concepts in hopes of saving a season that was thought to be "officially" canceled Wednesday.

It started as an idea for a simple geometry project, but it became a yearlong endeavor that turned 21 pupils into quilters, historians and curators. Two Carroll County teachers wanted pupils in their extended enrichment programs to make quilts as a way of applying math skills, such as measuring, and understanding geometrical concepts, such as shapes and sizes. Ivy Allgeier, a fifth-grade teacher at Winfield Elementary School in Westminster, teamed with Deb Lemieux, a fifth-grade teacher who worked last year at Spring Garden Elementary in Hampstead, for the project.

PITTSBURGH -- Everything you've heard, read or seen about Mario Lemieux, believe it doubled and tack on about a dozen of your best adjectives.Beaten badly by the Capitals in Washington in their first two playoff games, the Pittsburgh Penguins took up a comfortable position on the shoulders of Lemieux and just sat back and enjoyed the ride last night. Held to a pair of assists in his first two outings since returning from a severely injured shoulder, Lemieux scored three goals and assisted on three as the Penguins recovered from a bad opening period and clobbered Washington, 6-4.Game 4 of this suddenly wild Patrick Division semifinal series continues tomorrow night.
