This isn't the canned ravioli your kids like. It's a dish worthy of Spago's, the California restaurant where Puck is chef: Just be sure not to overcook. We tried the four cheese ravioli with tomato, basil and garlic sauce (plenty of rich cheese)

The reviews are still coming in on the "Fox Trax" experiment of highlighting the puck during Saturday's NHL All-Star Game, and they are surprisingly mixed.Many television critics, this one included, and NHL officials like the concept, but some hockey purists, mostly north of the border, and some fans have weighed in on the negative side.For instance, an ESPNET SportsZone survey on the Internet found that of more than 10,000 fans who responded, 67 percent didn't like the experiment, in which Fox enhanced the appearance of the puck through sensors, transmitters and computers to make it glow and display a comet-like trail at high speeds.

The puck is the essential piece of any hockey game, yet it is largely invisible to most television viewers because of its tiny size.All that could change thanks to Fox, the American hockey rights holder, which unveils "FoxTrax," a computer-enhanced puck on tomorrow's NHL All-Star Game telecast from Boston (Channel 45, 8 p.m.).The enhancement, which makes the puck glow during regular play and emits a comet trail for faster velocities, is one of the biggest technological advances to come to sports recently.

It's for hockey-card fans with a sweet tooth.The package, black foil, announces it as candy with three cards enclosed. Clearly, the emphasis is on chocolate, not cards.

Whenever fans talk about the Big Four professional sports, the general consensus is that they're talking baseball, football, basketball and hockey. But the way the news of Mario Lemieux's illness was covered last week, the NHL still may have a ways to go to firmly establish itself on the same plateau as the other three -- or even pro tennis and golf."

This week at William McKinley High, glee club's superstar standouts, Rachel and Kurt, audition in front of Carmen (played by guest star Whoopi Goldberg) for the New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts, aka NYADA, aka the school of their dreams. Rachel advises Kurt to play it safe with his song choice and stick to "Music of the Night" from "Phantom of the Opera;" however, in last-minute effort to be bold, daring and unique, Kurt wows Carmen with his rendition of "Not the Boy Next Door" from "The Boy from Oz. " Carmen said even Hugh Jackman, who won a Tony award for his performance in the musical, would've impressed with Kurt's audition.

— The NHL's holiday break ended Monday when games resumed around the league, but apparently no one told the Washington Capitals. Facing the Buffalo Sabres at First Niagara Center after a two-day break, the Capitals looked uninspired, rarely sustained possession and didn't offer much response when challenged to win a battle for the puck in the opening 20 minutes. Turns out the four-goal lead the Sabres accumulated in the first period would be all they needed to hand Washington a decisive, demoralizing 4-2 loss.

Former Washington Capitals great Dale Hunter earned the applause of the sellout crowd Tuesday night at Verizon Center for his NHL coaching debut behind the home team's bench. There were video montages of his fights and goals, replays of Hunter's memorable playoff goal in 1988 against the Philadelphia Flyers and No. 32 jerseys in the seats. But by the midway point of their game against the St. Louis Blues, nostalgia gave way to the realization that there is plenty of work for Hunter and the Capitals to do. St. Louis spoiled his return by capturing a 2-1 victory over the Capitals, who have suffered three straight defeats and are 2-6-0 in their past eight games.

For the first time in their NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series, the Washington Capitals entered the third period with a lead. A one-goal cushion that would force the Tampa Bay Lightning to take risks and stray from its smothering defense. But then it evaporated as Steven Stamkos and Ryan Malone scored 24 seconds apart, and that 4-3 edge stood as the Lightning went up three games to none in the best-of-seven series. The top-seeded Capitals, who have yet to advance past the second round of the playoffs under coach Bruce Boudreau, now face elimination Wednesday in Game 4 at St. Pete Times Forum.

This, The New York Times reported last week, was her first hockey game. He was a New York Rangers fan who had sat several times in the cheaper seats near the ceiling at Madison Square Garden. But when somebody gave Laszlo Tokolyi two tickets in the seventh row near one of the nets, he persuaded his wife, Gyongyi, to go see the Rangers play the Detroit Red Wings on March 17. A handyman, Tokolyi does not often get $120 seats to see the Rangers face the best team in the NHL. "OK, let's go," she said she told him. "I'll see how it's going to be. I don't really like hockey, but my husband said, `Oh, you should come because it's going to be good.

Alex Ovechkin was trying desperately to get to the front of the Washington net late in regulation with the score tied at 2 in Game 3 of this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. In an attempt to swipe the puck out of danger, though, the Capitals' star left wing accidentally tipped it into the net for what proved to be the game-winning tally for the New York Rangers. Ovechkin lay on the ice, head resting on top of his arms, motionless as Madison Square Garden erupted in celebration of the Rangers' 3-2 victory.
