LANDOVER -- When a kid shows up in the big time, no matter the sport involved, he's expected to have some fear, awe and timidity in his traveling bag, along with hope and expectation. This is especially so if the lad is only two years removed from high school.So what is it with this new goaltender the Washington Capitals are featuring these days? Maybe Jim Carey forgot he's 20 years old and he's not supposed to have all this self-assurance and composure yet.Three times in the first few minutes of a NHL game against the Caps last night, the Stanley Cup champ New York Rangers sent guys in on Carey on breakaways.

NEW YORK -- The Ottawa Senators may be the worst team in the NHL, but their leading scorer, Alexei Yashin, is one of the league's best players under pressure.Yashin, a 20-year-old rookie, scored the winning goal for the Eastern Conference All-Stars in the NHL's 45th All-Star Game with 3:29 to play yesterday."It is very hard to realize what I did now," Yashin said through a Russian translator. "Maybe in a few days, a week or a year, I'll feel the importance of it. But right now, all I know is that just to have played in this game means more to me than scoring 500 goals."
