And what the Buffalo Sabres got a taste of was a bit frightening.Miller, Poulin and Berube are known for their hard checking, but since being together, they not only have stymied opposing offenses, but also created scoring opportunities of their own.Only the lightning reflexes of Buffalo goalie Dominik Hasek prevented their several odd-man breakaways from finding the net.It was the beginning.

LANDOVER -- Look out, NHL, the Washington Capitals are flexing their muscles, showing their depth.Last night with a noisy crowd of 16,291 looking on at USAir Arena and the team's two leading goal scorers -- Dimitri Khristich and Mike Ridley -- getting the night off, Washington's $1.8 million man, Kelly Miller worked free inside the left circle with 45.8 seconds left and blasted the Capitals to a 2-1 victory over New Jersey Devils, the hottest team in...

LANDOVER -- It wasn't supposed to be this easy.The Washington Capitals needed only 16 shots and 2 hours, 11 minutes to defeat the usually tough Philadelphia Flyers, 4-1, before 14,962 at the Capital Centre last night.These Patrick Division rivals have hooked up in some of the most exciting games in recent years in the National Hockey League, but last night's contest was dull."It ended so quickly, with so few shots and scoring chances," Washington coach Terry Murray said. "It was a game I was a little concerned about.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals have this third-period goal-scoring routine down pretty good. For the third consecutive game, they blistered the opposing team's net.But yesterday afternoon, for the first time in four games, the Capitals did not have to depend on a frantic third-period rally.Washington beat the New Jersey Devils, 9-2, thrilling a crowd of 15,881 at the Capital Centre with a new way of winning in the new year.It was the first time New Jersey had allowed nine goals since Dec. 13, 1990, against Pittsburgh and the first time Washington has produced that many since a 10-4 victory against Quebec on Nov. 10, 1991.

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.

LANDOVER -- There were no tears shed in the Washington Capitals' locker room last night.None of the streaking Capitals or coach Jim Schoenfeld thought the team had taken any steps backward in battling to a 2-2 draw with the lowly Edmonton Oilers before 12,619 at the USAir Arena."

LANDOVER -- Eighty goals!Brett Hull is the guy who scored them, only the third NHL player to ever turn the trick, and he was matter of fact about it: "You just go out and play; get caught thinking about the future and you're not thinking about the task at hand."Now Kelly Chase, he thought it was a big deal, even though he had turned in a game he'll probably carry with him forever. Called up from the minors just a couple of days before, Chase's first goal proved the difference in the St. Louis Blues' 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals.
