WASHINGTON - -Alex Ovechkin scored twice in regulation and notched the only goal in the shootout to lift the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. After Ovechkin's pretty tally in the shootout, rookie goaltender Semyon Varlamov redeemed himself from a soft second-period goal by stopping all three Nashville attempts, including a brilliant pad save on Martin Erat's deke to clinch the Capitals' second straight win. The game probably never should have come down to a shootout.

DURHAM, N.C. - Maryland's women's lacrosse team has been the No. 1 team in the national polls for 33 consecutive weeks, dating to the end of the 1998 season. But that's about to change. The Terrapins, ranked No. 1 in the preseason Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll, fell to No. 3 Duke, 9-8, last night at Koskinen Stadium. The win by the Blue Devils (2-0) ended Maryland's 43-game winning streak, which dated to the 2000 season. There was drama down to the final seconds as an apparent Maryland goal with eight seconds remaining was waved off due to a dangerous follow-through penalty against Terps attacker Courtney Hobbs.

WASHINGTON With 1:24 to play last night, Jeff Halpern poked a loose puck into an open net for a three-goal Washington Capitals lead and what appeared to be pure padding in the teams first game under new coach Glen Hanlon. But when the final second ticked off the clock, it was Halpern's goal that was the game-winner in the Caps 6-5 victory over the Boston Bruins before 15,384 at MCI Center. "We were fine," said Hanlon, who was named the head coach on Wednesday afternoon, shortly after Bruce Cassidy was fired.

NEW YORK -- Jaromir Jagr has a penchant for fast cars, and the swiftest wheels in the National Hockey League.Jagr carried the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins on his jet-propelled skates with two goals -- one on a penalty shot and the other with 5:33 left in the game -- while leading them to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers last night at Madison Square Garden.The Penguins' latest improbable victory gave them a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Patrick Division finals, in which the Rangers have been portrayed as the villains for the Adam Graves slash that has left Mario Lemieux a broken-handed bystander.

Nathan Horton, Jozef Stumpel and Rostislav Olesz scored for Florida, which won on the road for the first time since Oct. 25. Luongo made his biggest save with six minutes left, stopping rookie star Alexander Ovechkin on a breakaway.

DALLAS - The Maryland men's soccer team's dream to bring back the school's second national championship ended yesterday amid a storm of controversy. Terrapins coach Sasho Cirovski was issued a red card and was not around to see UCLA junior Adolfo Gregorio drill home a penalty shot with a little more than eight minutes to play. That goal sent the third-seeded Bruins to a 2-1 victory over second-seeded Maryland before 7,025 in the semifinals of the College Cup at Gerald J. Ford Stadium on the campus of Southern Methodist University.

Displaying no emotion, Collins booted the penalty kick into the upper right corner of the goal in the 79th minute, giving Centennial a 1-0 victory over No. 7-ranked Mount Hebron and preserving the No. 3-ranked Eagles' undefeated season.

PITTSBURGH -- Things fell apart so quickly for the Washington Capitals last night, that when it was over, the hardest part was trying to remember how well they once had things wrapped up.Let's see -- they had a two-goal lead; they stopped two Penguins power plays; goalie Don Beaupre stopped a penalty shot. Surely, with Mario Lemieux out of the lineup and Caps nemesis Tom Barrasso absent with the chicken pox, this was going to be Washington's night.And then it all disappeared in a minute. Make that a minute and a half.
