The Capitals won their eighth straight game on Sunday, beating the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks, 4-3, on Mike Knuble's overtime game-winner. The bigger story, though, was that DJ Pauly D of "Jersey Shore" fame attended the game at Verizon Center as Alex Ovechkin's special guest. "Going To Support My Main Homie @ ovi8 @ The Caps Game Right Now !!! Then Off To Zembo Shrine !!!!! #beatdatbeat ," Pauly D Tweeted before the game . After the game, Pauly D showed up on the Jumbotron , posed with the Capitals' mascot and impressed Capitals owner Ted Leonsis , who called him a "very polite young man.

After all of the previous postseason disappointments, this spring was supposed to be the one that ended differently for the Washington Capitals. Wednesday night, though, there would be no furious comeback, no heroics from the star-studded lineup to match the Tampa Bay Lightning's killer instinct. There would be no win in the second round, either. The Lightning captured a 5-3 win in Game 4 at the St.Pete Times Forum to complete a tidy four-game sweep of the Capitals in the Eastern Conference semifinals that took all of six days.

Capitals right wing Mike Knuble has a broken finger and will be sidelined three to four weeks. Knuble was injured on a power play in the first period of Friday's 3-1 victory over the Wild. He crashed into the net when defenseman Marek Zidlicky sent him hurdling over goaltender Josh Harding . The Capitals said Knuble will have surgery. The team did not say which finger was broken. Knuble has five goals and 10 assists for the Capitals this season. He was one of Washington's major offseason acquisitions, signing a two-year deal, $5.6 million deal on the first day of NHL free agency in July.

Every extra drop of adrenaline provided by Alex Ovechkin's game-tying, overtime-forcing tally was coursing through the Washington Capitals in extra time of Game 2 of this Eastern Conference semifinal series. They dominated play and sparked bedlam from the capacity crowd behind them, but all the momentum of that setting wouldn't keep the Tampa Bay Lightning from taking advantage of one mistake. Veteran defenseman Scott Hannan thought he could get off the ice for a change and his replacement, Jeff Schultz, would be in position before the puck made its way back to the Capitals' end. The Lightning noticed the change and quickly turned up ice. With 6 minutes, 19 seconds gone in the extra period, Vincent Lecavalier sent a shot above Michal Neuvirth's glove on a two-on-one as a result of the change to seal a 3-2 Tampa Bay victory.

WASHINGTON - - The Capitals scored three goals in a 2 1/2 -minute span in the third period Wednesday night, igniting a 5-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks and giving the Eastern Conference's top team its longest winning streak in 26 years. Shaone Morrisonn, Mike Knuble and Alexander Semin scored on consecutive shots early in the third period to break open a tie game, helping the Capitals win their eighth straight - their best run since taking a franchise-record 10 in a row during the 1983-84 season.

The Washington Capitals were happy with an easy win Tuesday night, but they didn't leave Colorado in a good mood. Tomas Fleischmann scored two goals, Jos� Theodore stopped 27 shots and Washington routed the Colorado Avalanche, 6-1. Nicklas Backstrom and Matt Bradley had a goal and assist each, and Mike Knuble and David Steckel also scored. Kyle Wilson and Chris Clark both had two assists for the Capitals, who have won seven of nine.

The Capitals will put their eight-game winning streak on the line tonight against the Canadiens, and should they pick up a win in Montreal and if the Flyers lose tonight, they will overtake their nemeses from Philadelphia for the top spot in the East. The Capitals' caliber of play with a dozen games left is light years away from what we saw a year ago when they moon-walked their way into the playoffs and then to D.C.-area golf courses. They are the hottest team in hockey, and teams with momentum heading into the playoffs are especially dangerous in the NHL. And it's not just that the Capitals are winning games right now, it's that they are winning close ones they weren't capable of winning in postseasons past.

WASHINGTON - - Sidney Crosby scored the first two goals Sunday. Alex Ovechkin, though, ended up doing the Pittsburgh Penguins captain one better. Ovechkin recorded his first regular-season hat trick in almost a year, then assisted on Mike Knuble's overtime winner at Verizon Center, where the fans who trudged through 2 feet of snow were treated to a 5-4, come-from-behind win that extended the Washington Capitals' winning streak to 14 games. "You can tell when he's having one of his days," coach Bruce Boudreau said of Ovechkin.

Mike Knuble scored one goal Washington Capitals fans have to come to expect from the bang-and-crash wing. But he scored another goal that no one - not even Knuble himself - could have anticipated. Knuble netted his first career shootout goal in the fourth round to lift the Washington Capitals to a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins, their third win over the defending champions this season. After blowing a one-goal lead late in the third period, then falling behind 2-0 in the shootout, the Capitals rallied on goals by Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Knuble, a player known more for his brawn.

Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau could sense his players getting bored and tired during Thursday's practice, so instead of barking instructions as he had throughout the hourlong session, he decided to give them an incentive. "Don't fall asleep," he yelled to the 18 players on the ice as they continued a neutral-zone drill at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington. "We've only got 10 minutes left." Boudreau and his staff have gone back to the basics with training camp-style practices this week, emphasizing systems and conditioning before the final 20-game stretch of the Capitals' regular season picks up Wednesday at Buffalo.
