PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins turned the tables on the Washington Capitals last night, overcoming a two-goal deficit to win Game 2, 5-3, and even this best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series at one game apiece.Down 3-1 going into the third period and in danger of falling behind the Capitals by two games, the Penguins struck like lightning for three goals in the first 4:09 of the final period for a 4-3 lead that would stand up for the victory.Kevin Stevens' power-play goal with 15:40 to play clinched the win and ended a losing streak that had stood at three games at the end of the regular season and was stretched to four in Game 1."

The Maryland Zoo opened its first new major exhibit in a decade on Saturday, pinning its hopes on the endangered African penguin to spark a renaissance for the beleaguered institution. The new, $11 million Penguin Coast is now one of the first things visitors see after taking a shuttle to the park's exhibits. A small island designed to mimic a makeshift South African fishing camp sits in the center of a ring of water, so the penguins can swim in circles past an enclosed underwater viewing area.

As a blazing sun beat down on the city Tuesday, Rock Island - the moated exhibit at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore where African penguins zip through cool, shallow waters - seemed a good place to be. But the Druid Hill Park enclosure is nothing compared to the new digs planned for the zoo's prized colony of endangered birds. In a move to further enhance what is already considered one of North America's most robust breeding grounds for African penguins, zoo officials started construction this week on a $10.4 million, 1.5-acre exhibit for the birds to call home.

Institute of Notre Dame girls basketball coach Jerry Hahn isn't feeling too emotional heading into Friday night's 47th annual rivalry game against Mercy - at least not yet. It could be a different story after the game. For the third and final time, Hahn will coach his daughter, Jen, in "The Game," the showdown that regularly draws at least 4,000 fans to the Towson Center. For the Hahns, "The Game" is as much family tradition as IND tradition. Wife and mother Karen Hahn also played in "The Game" for IND in 1986, coached by her future husband.

Like kids bursting out the schoolhouse doors for recess, when the Maryland Zoo's 11 chimpanzees were allowed outside Saturday for a rare bit of winter sunshine, they couldn't help, well, monkeying around. They climbed to the very top of the mesh enclosure surrounding Chimpanzee Forrest, hung by one arm and gawked at the goings-on in a nearby construction site. They banged thunderously on the glass window separating them from human visitors, tickled themselves with tufts of grass, and chased one another around the compound as the thermometer rose to a balmy 57 degrees.

When it comes to water, penguins aren't naturals. As a matter of fact, "some of them are terrified," says Bethany Wlaz , a keeper at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore . So each time African penguins are born into the zoo's breeding program for the endangered birds, someone like Wlaz becomes their swimming coach. But first comes the equally terrifying introduction to being wet. Soft as a cotton ball and about the size of a roasted chicken, Male One — hatched on Oct. 12 — is lowered into a stainless steel sink by Wlaz and Betty Dipple, another animal keeper.

Jack Ramsey was chugging along in the Baltimore Marathon Saturday when he spotted the penguin by the side of the road. So he stopped, fished a camera from his pocket and took a picture of Tails, a six-year-old African blackfooted penguin who lives in the Maryland Zoo. "My wife loves penguins," said Ramsey, of Taneytown. "If I didn't take its picture, she'd be mad at me, no matter how much time I lost doing it. " For the first time in the marathon's 11-year history, participants ran for one-half mile through part of the zoo. Though the route bypassed exhibits, runners still met up with a cast of critters along the way - everything from a Chinese alligator to a North American striped skunk.
