VS. NEW YORK RANGERS* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.* WHERE: Madison Square Garden.* TV & RADIO: Ch. 20; WCAO-AM 600.* OUTLOOK: The Caps (13-4) continue to roll along as the unlikely early leaders of the Patrick Division, coming off an impressive 4-2 win against the NHL's leaders in Montreal Monday night. But they can't afford to slip against the Rangers (12-6-1), who would take over first place in the Patrick Division with a victory. The Caps, who host defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh on Friday, are 9-1 on the road and remain completely healthy.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals apparently put a lot of pressure on themselves last night. They looked at the Patrick Division standings and felt the neckline on their jerseys tighten.They went against the Patrick Division's last-place team, the Philadelphia Flyers, and under the direction of coach Terry Murray they approached it as a "must-win game."The Capitals gave it their best shot. They appeared to put the puck in the Flyers net three times, but it was Philadelphia and goalie Tommy Soderstrom who emerged as 3-0 winners.

PHILADELPHIA -- On the road map that the NHL unfolds toward the Stanley Cup, the first challenge is to find a way out of the neighborhood.Once again last night, the Washington Capitals were reminded of the difficulty of that journey's first leg.In falling to the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-3, at the Spectrum, the Capitals continued to be stumped by a Patrick Division puzzle.Though otherwise enjoying a fine season -- second place in the tough Patrick pack -- the Caps have been all but inept against divisional opponents.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals must feel very used by now. Every Patrick Division team the Capitals face manhandles them for a victory.Sunday it was the lowly New York Rangers, who arrived with a four-game losing streak and pummeled Washington, 4-0.Last night, it was the New York Islanders, who extended their Capital Centre dominance to 3-0 this season after last night's 3-2 victory.The win forged a third-place tie with the New Jersey Devils, which means there are now two teams chasing Washington for second place.

LANDOVER -- A week ago, the Washington Capitals seemed headed for an early exit from the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup playoffs. They were down two games to one to the New York Rangers in the best-of-seven Patrick Division semifinals. They were coming off a 6-0 defeat on home ice. A long vacation beckoned."We spent a lot of time reviewing what it takes to be successful," recalled Capitals coach Terry Murray. "That game was a rallying point for us."The Caps' rally began Tuesday night with a 3-2 win at home, continued with a stirring, come-from-behind, 5-4 victory in overtime Thursday in New York and concluded here with Saturday night's 4-2 series clincher before a sellout crowd at the Capital Centre.

After hours of study, contemplation, consultation and confusion, a decision finally has been made concerning the National Hockey League's new realignment and changes in nomenclature, scheduling and the Stanley Cup playoffs.Yech! Try again, fellas.Of course, we'll all learn to live with it sooner or later, as in days of yore when the NFL-AFL merger went into effect and the Colts, Browns and Steelers took a payoff to leave the old guard to reside and prosper in the AFC.But, in the meantime, let's rue the folly of some of these moves, supposedly orchestrated by brand spanking new commissioner Gary Bettman.

If it became necessary at this very moment to name an MVP for the NCAA basketball tournament, undoubtedly it would go to the man at CBS responsible for the game switches to date.In the past, the network would no sooner ditch a bad game for a good one for fear of upsetting regional viewers than it would pass out free commercial time.At long last, however, some clear thinker at CBS has come to the rightful conclusion that most of the audience this late in the season can be placed in one category: Fan, not home team fanatic.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals didn't exactly want to hand the Pittsburgh Penguins the Stanley Cup after yesterday's game. But after the high-tech performance the Penguins turned in, the Capitals and the rest of the NHL eventually may have no other choice.Pittsburgh won for the 10th straight time and wrapped up the Patrick Division title with a 4-1 victory over the second-place Capitals yesterday. And aside from complaining about the referees keeping them at a man-down disadvantage for 16 minutes, there was nothing the Capitals could do but rave about the Penguins' performance.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals just can't score in the Patrick Division. So far, they can't win, either.The New York Islanders defeated the Caps, 5-2, Friday night before 16,123 at the Capital Centre.They're 0-5 in the Patrick Division and 3-5 overall. Now they begin a four-game road trip."We're in a hole now," Caps coach Terry Murray said. "This is not a good situation. It doesn't matter where we're going. . . . It's a little scary going on the road for four games."When they play outside their division, the Caps average 5.67 goals a game.

Gainesville, Florida. -- Yes, St. Patrick, there is an I.R.A. -- An Irish Republican Army which masquerades murder for patriotism your old island. Irish nationalism makes for good culture but poor politics. Clinging to the old sod as one Ireland, when it's two, twists a warm Irish welcome into the cold, hard steel of a gun barrel.What went wrong? How is it that someone named O'Rourke or O'Reilly can feel and be more Irish living in New York, Sydney or South London than a lad named Douglas, Graham or Bell living in Belfast?
