The Washington Capitals opened practice yesterday with unabated optimism and dreams of success in the NHL, even though they are again in the position of hoping for more offense and have not yet signed Peter Bondra, who led the Caps and the league in goal scoring last season."

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals were on their way to a 7-2 victory over the Penguins last night that would clinch their sixth-place finish in the Eastern Conference, when Peter Bondra looked up to see his NHL goal-scoring lead threatened.But it wasn't threatened long.With the Capitals leading 4-2 in the third period, and Pittsburgh's Jaromir Jagr having scored the two to get Pittsburgh back in the game and force a goal-scoring tie with Bondra at 32 apiece, Bondra went to work.He scored short-handed -- for an NHL-leading sixth time -- to retake the lead and give the Caps a 4-2 advantage.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Washington coach Terry Murray keeps saying if his Capitals play basic, team-oriented hockey, they can beat anyone in the NHL.Last night, for the second time in back-to-back games, the Capitals played as if they believe him.Goalie Rick Tabaracci recorded his fifth career shutout and second in 11 days, beating the streaking New Jersey Devils, 4-0.The Capitals defense gave up 32 shots, but only a handful were dangerous.And the major thrust of the offense came from center Michal Pivonka and right wing Peter Bondra, two of the men Washington had determined to be their offensive leaders this season.

NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers are big, fast and talented, and after last night's 5-2 victory in Game 2 of this NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series, they probably believe they will be advancing to the Eastern Conference finals in another two games.But for 50 minutes, 47 seconds last night, the Washington Capitals gave the Rangers and the sellout crowd of 18,200 at Madison Square Garden everything they could handle."We're going home, into a building where we've played very well in the postseason," said Washington center Dave Poulin.

Washington right wing Peter Bondra made history last night and got his wish.Bondra became the first player in Washington Capitals history to win the NHL goal-scoring title, and Pittsburgh's Jaromir Jagr became the first European to win the point-scoring title."

Washington Capitals coach Terry Murray needed only an instant to state the problem."We're not scoring," he said while waiting for the team's flight to Calgary, Alberta, for tonight's game against the Flames. "We're not finishing anywhere near the way we did last year. We've shown that loud and clear."The Capitals are in the middle of a four-game western road trip that Murray had hoped would relax his team, relieve some pressure and get his scorers going. So far, with a 6-2 loss in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Monday and a 4-3 loss in Vancouver on Wednesday, none of those hopes is being fulfilled.

QUEBEC -- If anyone thinks the Washington Capitals had a different look in their 3-0 shutout of the Florida Panthers on Friday night, he is right. And that look will continue tonight against the Quebec Nordiques.After that? Wait and see.Lines that had seemed set suddenly were shuffled. Capitals coach Jim Schoenfeld started moving his players around last Wednesday during a 2-1 loss to New Jersey. But Friday, the changes were even more startling.There on a line together was the team's leading scorer, Peter Bondra, and Michal Pivonka -- nothing unusual about that.

The Washington Capitals, a shambles just two weeks ago, might have turned the corner and discovered prosperity."With the way things have been going in the first three games of this road trip, everyone is feeling the confidence rise," said Washington coach Terry Murray. "We've just continued improving the play we showed from our last three home games, and we're now playing with a lot of energy and enthusiasm."After an 0-6 start, the Capitals are 4-1 in their past five games, the latest Wednesday night's 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks, co-leaders of the Pacific Division with a 7-2 record and 14 points.
