Tomas Fleischmann scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and set up Nicklas Backstrom's breakaway goal less than a minute later for Washington, which won its fifth in a row and eighth in nine games and improved to 4-0-1 against Pittsburgh during the past two seasons, although the Penguins won when it mattered most - in the playoffs.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.* WHERE: Pittsburgh Civic Arena.* TV/RADIO: Ch. 20; WCAO-AM 600.* OUTLOOK: Coach Terry Murray wanted toughness from his new scheme featuring defensemen Ken Sabourin and Al Iafrate and he's gotten it. The Capitals (23-26-3) tied Minnesota 2-2 Friday and defeated the Islanders 5-4 in OT Sunday. Left wing John Kordic, perhaps the toughest of all of the new acquisitions, won't be in the lineup until at least next week. The Penguins (27-21-3) have Mario Lemieux back in the lineup.

Tom Poti thought he had finally pushed the painful memory of the Washington Capitals' Game 7 collapse against the Pittsburgh Penguins into the deep recesses of his mind. But about three weeks later, the defenseman discovered he had not buried it deep enough. "Just when you're starting to get over it, you see them hoisting the Cup," Poti said Monday, eight months after Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and his teammates beat the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Finals. "You start thinking, 'Could that have been us?

The Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the NHL's worst teams last season, has new ownership that believes it can achieve the type of quick turnaround that the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers pulled off. So to head up this endeavor, word is that the Lightning will name ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose as the coach today. The last and only time that Melrose coached in the NHL was from 1992 to 1995 (2 1/2 seasons), and the Kings did go to the Stanley Cup Finals once, losing to the Montreal Canadiens.

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 team's 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.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals sat hunched forward on the bench, leaning on the boards as the minutes slipped away in the final period of last night's 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. A study in perfect harmony, their blue gloves gripped the red railing, perfectly spaced, their eyes a single focus on their teammates on the ice. They sat watching with such intense stillness they could have been a photograph. "There's such anticipation," said Caps coach Bruce Cassidy. "They could see the tide was turning.
