If the Washington Capitals' meeting with the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night truly represented a measuring stick of their progress under coach Dale Hunter, as players billed it in the hours leading up to the game, then they came up far short. Washington fell, 5-1, at Verizon Center in a game in which its offense fell dormant for stretches, the defensive zone coverage eroded and the goaltending allowed soft goals. The Capitals are 3-4 under Hunter and have lost six of their past nine.

PHILADELPHIA - Mark Recchi leans back against his locker, relaxed, happy. The only tension surrounding the Philadelphia Flyers this season is what comes with being a favorite to win the Stanley Cup. And that's something nearly everyone in the room appreciates. "It's definitely a little calmer around here," Recchi said. "It's pretty obvious we don't have the distractions." The big distraction was Eric Lindros. The strapping center sat out all of last season after demanding a trade from the organization with which he had grown to stardom.

PHILADELPHIA - Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig probably wanted to take his teammates to the woodshed after each of the first two periods last night at the First Union Center. They had done nothing to protect him, done nothing to demonstrate a care for their goalie, done nothing to impede the Philadelphia Flyers at all. Only a slap shot by Jaromir Jagr that caught the Flyers by surprise had gotten Washington on the scoreboard in the opening period, and only an amazing performance by Kolzig kept the Capitals in the game at all. But by the time Kolzig, who allowed five goals on 29 shots, took a seat for the third period, the Capitals had learned their goalie, as good as he is, can't do it all by himself all the time.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals turned a plodding game into a joyous celebration last night, yanking the sellout crowd out of their seats midway through the final period.In a little less than six minutes, the Caps took the lead on a power-play goal by Joe Juneau, killed a five-minute major penalty brought on when defenseman Mark Tinordi was caught spearing, and made it clear they were fully intending to get goalie Jim Carey his fourth shutout of the season and the eighth of his career if they could.
