PITTSBURGH -- It's probably fortunate Vince McMahon was off peddling his World Wrestling Federation somewhere last night. If he had caught a peek at what transpired here in the third game of the Pittsburgh Penguins-Washington Capitals NHL playoff series, he would certainly be going into his pocket for a piece of the action.Welcome to HockeyMania I! First off, the Pens won, 6-4, their first victory in the best-of-seven. And the sellout crowd at the Civic Arena was treated to a virtuoso performance by the Marvelous One, Mario Lemieux.

One potential byproduct of the new rules in men's college lacrosse this season: more disparity in offensive efficiency, a stat that looks at goals per offensive possession and adjusts for strength of schedule. In data from Brian Coughlin , a stats expert who has done analysis for Division I programs and contributes to Inside Lacrosse, Denver has the league's highest adjusted offensive efficiency. The Pioneers score at 51 percent (numbers adjusted for strength of schedule). That's markedly higher than last season's best, Massachusetts' 42 percent.

PHILADELPHIA -- This is not a story for anyone with a (obscene adjective) weak heart. It is a story of crime and punishment, of assaults and batterings, of bodily fluids and blood, of aggression and ear-curling language, of knuckles and more blood. It is a story of men who blatantly break rules and pay for their anti-social behavior with time.In case you couldn't guess, it is a (obscene adjective) hockey story. You didn't know that? You (obscene adjective) moron!It is a story about a night in the penalty box.Hockey is the only sport with a penalty box. It is the adult version of being sent to your room.

In a game marred by 63 penalty minutes -- 42 of which were against the home team -- the Baltimore Bombers suffered their first-ever loss Sunday afternoon, 20-9 to the Boston Rockhoppers at Du Burns Arena. The Rockhoppers (3-1) scored nine straight goals to break open a tied game at the half and take sole possession of first place in the North American Lacrosse League, dropping the Bombers to 2-1. Bombers coach Hunter Francis was displeased with his team's effort. “Before the game I felt we were focused and calm.

Along with junior goalkeeper Mike Fisher, senior defenseman David Henry is the veteran voice on a Holy Cross defense looking to improve on the 11.1 goals per game the unit surrendered last year. Henry, a Davidsonville native and Severn graduate, has made 26 starts in the team's last 30 contests and was named a captain in the offseason. Because of the Crusaders' expected youth on defense, Holy Cross coach Jim Morrissey said Henry must avoid last season's habit of collecting fouls.

Tamir Linhart scored the winning goal with 3:15 left, as George Mason (6-4-1) ended the six-game winning streak of No. 20 Loyola (8-2) with a 2-1 victory yesterday in Fairfax, Va.The winning play began with a corner kick on the right side of the field. Sophomore John Ferrandino made a short pass to freshman Craig Melton, who dribbled along the top of the penalty box before lofting a left-footed shot toward the goal. Linhart dived and headed the ball just inside the right post for his eighth goal.

Yesterday may not have been the best day Franklin senior forward Martha Mitchell had in her life, but it had to rank near the top. Mitchell scored four goals, including the game-winner in overtime, and assisted on the other to lead the Indians to a stunning 5-4 upset over No. 6 Westminster last night in the final of the Lady Owls Invitational soccer tournament. Earlier yesterday, Mitchell scored four goals in Franklin's 6-1 semifinal victory over La Plata of Charles County. "That's about as absolutely unbelievable as you can possibly get," Franklin coach George Wagner said of Mitchell's eight goals in one day. "They were no fluke goals either."

Despite having played soccer nearly her entire life, when Parkville junior striker Sheree Geroux entered high school, she thought she would give cross country a try. "My older sister was a good runner, so I had to follow in her footsteps," Geroux said. "But soccer is my passion. We would run around the soccer field, and I would think, `I want to play.' I played for my club team, but it wasn't enough. I had to play more." Two years later, she is now the Knights' leading scorer. Yesterday afternoon, Geroux scored four goals and assisted on one to lead Parkville to a 5-3 victory over No. 13 Franklin in a Baltimore County Division I game in Reisterstown.

When Salisbury and SUNY-Cortland meet Sunday in an NCAA tournament Division III final at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., it's arguable that anyone on the field will be as emotional as Sam Bradman. The senior midfielder is always excited when he steps onto the field for a game, but in recent years, he has been able to tone it down and save his energy for scoring goals and making plays. But Bradman is still vulnerable to letting his emotions get the best of him. In Sunday's 7-2 victory over Stevenson in the semifinal round, Bradman was flagged for a one-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after scoring a goal to give the Sea Gulls a 3-0 lead with 6:59 left in the third quarter.

There were no tantalizing bicycle kicks like last year, and the "beautiful game" was a little ragged at times, but Baltimore's exposure to international soccer still produced its share of memorable moments Saturday night. Much of the meaningful action unfolded in the first half at M&T Bank Stadium, where a modest crowd announced at 36,569 saw two early scuffles, one suspect red card and one spectacular goal. Throw in an own goal by Manchester City in the second half, and European champion Inter Milan dominated for a 3-0 victory in the preseason friendly.

DETROIT - -One game after being criticized by their coach for not showing enough desire, effort was the least of the Washington Capitals' problems at Joe Louis Arena. Team discipline, however, was again an issue, and the lack of it proved to be the decisive factor in a 3-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, the Capitals' third consecutive defeat. Defenseman Mike Green was in the penalty box when Tomas Holmstrom snapped a shot from the circle over Jose Theodore's glove for the Red Wings' second power-play goal of the night with 6 minutes, 53 seconds left.

WASHINGTON -Alexander Semin scored one of Washington's three power-play goals last night and assisted on both of the others, including Mike Green's go-ahead goal, and the Capitals held on for a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers. Green's 23rd goal - most among NHL defensemen - came off passes from Nicklas Backstrom and Semin and broke a 2-all tie 12:25 into the second period. It came on a man-advantage, as did Washington's first two goals, which came 53 seconds apart in the first period.

Blast coach Tim Wittman was suspended for the remainder of the season yesterday by the Major Indoor Soccer League, whose officials said more punishment could be coming in the next several days.

Tarik Walker will remain as the assistant coach. The Blast is in third place with a 15-10 record and recently clinched a playoff spot, and Hale said that the coaching situation would be re-evaluated at season's end. Wittman was involved in an incident at the end of Saturday's 8-6 loss to the California Cougars in Stockton, Calif.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- In the sixth minute of yesterday's World Cup match between Brazil and Russia, the temperamental Brazilian star known around the world as Romario found himself alone with the ball and bearing down on the Russian goal. The horn-blowing, yellow-shirted Brazilian fans filling Stanford Stadium leapt to their feet.When Romario's tame shot flew right to the goalkeeper, the fans groaned and sat down, and the Brazilian samba drummers went silent. Romario stopped and stared at his offending right foot, then at the goal, slowly shaking his head in disbelief.

Laurel -- Winning a championship can sometimes come down to inches and seconds. For Mount St. Joseph's hockey team, losing came down to the width of a puck in a 6-4 loss to Gonzaga in the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League's private schools championship at the Gardens Ice House last night. Gonzaga's Sean Dinn stuffed the puck between the pad of Gaels goalie Tom Bowles and the left goal post with 42 seconds remaining to give the Eagles a 5-4 lead. The Eagles added an empty-net goal for the final margin after Mount St. Joseph had pulled its goalie.
