Baltimore had a nice record building playing on Wednesdays, taking four of five games. The club had a two-game winning streak against Binghamton, both victories coming on the road, no less. Better yet, the Plug Line was back together, Dwayne Norris returning from Anaheim of the NHL.The operative words here are had, had and was, all past tense. It was the visiting Rangers who were functioning in the present last night at the Baltimore Arena, and they bombed the Bandits, 5-1.For openers, the Bandits made the mistake of putting Binghamton on the power play three times in the middle period.

Anne Arundel County's budget process turned rocky on Friday, as the County Council cut $5 million from the school system -- a move the schools superintendent called a "spiteful and petty power play. " On a 7-0 vote, the County Council cut the school system's roof replacement budget from $2 million to zero, and the maintenance backlog budget from $4.1 million to $1.1 million. County Executive Laura Neuman's budget officer, John Hammond, opposed the cuts. The cuts represent a tiny portion of the school system's nearly $600 million budget.

WASHINGTON - From the beginning, this game looked different. The Washington Capitals were on the attack from the opening faceoff, scored first for only the sixth time in 20 games and beat the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, 4-1, last night. The victory ended a two-game horror show for Washington. The Capitals had lost back-to-back games by a combined score of 16-5, and though the win came against the Ducks, a team that is on a six-game losing streak of its own, it was still a welcome occurrence at MCI Center, where 17,298 were in attendance.

NEW YORK -The Washington Capitals were finally able to show off their power play last night and won, 5-2, pulling away from the New York Rangers. But, it wasn't all good news for the Caps. Superstar Jaromir Jagr was dragged down in the opening period and did not return, and veteran defenseman Brendan Witt was also sidelined by the end of the game. "Jags has a leg injury, and I think he's day-to-day right now," said Capitals coach Ron Wilson. "He got slew-footed [legs kicked out from under him]

Here's a cool example of what-goes-around-comes-around: In 1965, a British -made thriller called "Die! Die! My Darling!" hit the movie houses. This study in strangeness and sadism starred the indelibly foggy-voiced, deliciously irreverent Tallulah Bankhead in her last film. She plays Mrs. Trefoile, a religious fanatic who keeps a tight rein on her country house and her suspiciously loyal servants. Obsessed with the recent death of her son, Mrs. Trefoile is only too happy to welcome as a guest her son's former fiancee, the decidedly worldly Patricia Carroll.

His throwing arm wrapped in a huge bag of ice, he and his Orioles teammates taken through a roller coaster of a night, catcher Matt Wieters put it perfectly. “This year nothing's really come easy so far,” he said. On a night when the Orioles nearly gift-wrapped a win to the White Sox on a chilly Chicago night at U.S. Cellular Field, frustration and elation merged within a matter of innings. The Orioles went into the eighth inning down three runs, unable to give starter Jake Arrieta the run support he deserved while committing three errors in the field.

The Washington Capitals' 2011-12 season opener certainly wasn't pretty. They gained and relinquished two separate one-goal leads and the Carolina Hurricanes forced overtime with less than two minutes remaining. But in the extra session the Capitals found an ally in the special teams unit that so often betrayed them a season ago. Mike Green scored unassisted on the power play 2:24 into overtime to seal a 4-3 win over the Hurricanes. It marked Washington's 10th consecutive win in a home opener and gave a raucous announced 18,506 - the 107th consecutive sellout at Verizon Center - a reason to go home happy.

If you study the history of American business, one thing you quickly learn is that billionaires don't typically amass their wealth and power by innovation alone. They often do it by imposing their will and flexing their financial might. Negotiating deals worth billions of dollars is not for the timid, and it also doesn't require that both sides play nice. That's why it wasn't a surprise to see the NFL owners attempt a savvy bit of public relations Thursday night when they tried to pressure the NFL Players Association into signing a new 10-year labor agreement.

Multiple times over the course of this season, the Washington Capitals characterized stinging defeats and growing pains from a new style of play as lessons that would help guide them through the playoffs. But as they head to Tampa Bay for games 3 and 4 of this Eastern Conference semifinal series, the Capitals cannot afford to learn anything else the hard way. Trailing the Lightning two games to none, Washington must capture at least one victory in back-to-back games for a chance to extend its season and advance to the conference finals.

M ake no mistake, the state Senate has done much more than express some idle curiosity about the University of Maryland's law clinics. Budget language approved by the Senate last week includes a not-so-subtle message: Be careful whom you let your law students represent. The tactics have all the charm of what Sen. Jim Brochin calls "something straight out of communist China." The University of Maryland School of Law is being ordered to produce a list of all the plaintiffs its students have represented over the past two years or lose $250,000 in funding.

For Blast fans, it was a welcome sight Friday night at 1st Mariner Arena, something they have grown accustomed to seeing but have not seen much lately. After another sluggish first half ended with the home team down two points to visiting Monterrey La RaZa, Blast veteran Denison Cabral put away a tying power-play goal in the opening minutes of the third quarter and headed for the boards. He climbed them jubilantly, put his hands together when he reached the top and celebrated with fans.
