WASHINGTON - The final minute of overtime was ticking away and the MCI Center crowd was voicing its impatience, as the Washington Capitals struggled to hold onto the puck for a solid shot on the game's final power play. Then Peter Bondra got off a shot and Robert Lang made a huge effort to maintain control of the slippery piece of rock-hard rubber. The New York Islanders began inching toward Lang, forgetting to cover their backs. Behind them, Jaromir Jagr was hanging around the far post, a forgotten man, until Lang sent the pass across the crease and Jagr one-timed it into the Islanders' net with 36.4 seconds left, giving the Caps a 4-3 victory.

PHILADELPHIA - The Washington Capitals, who have prided themselves on defense for at least two decades, came into last night's game against the Philadelphia Fly ers ranked No. 29 among 30 teams in goals-against average. They came in off one of the most humiliating losses in team history, giving up 11 goals in a loss to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. They came in hoping to show the Flyers and themselves that they could rebound from such ignoble performances. Instead, the Flyers played the Capitals as if they were a cheap pinball machine in a penny arcade and dealt Washington its seventh loss in nine games, 5-0 . It was the fourth time Washington has been shut out this season.

MONTREAL -- They often talk about ghosts at the Montreal Forum, but they usually are Canadien ghosts. Last night, as the Washington Capitals played their last game here, they found a few of their own, who must have been rattling around since the 1970s, when the Caps were an expansion team and losing regularly to Montreal.Last night, they lost again, 5-3, and leave the Forum for the last time with a 7-30-6 record in the storied old facility that is being replaced March 16."Maybe it's a good thing they're going to tear this old place down," said Caps goaltender Jim Carey, who saw four pucks get past him on Montreal's first five shots.

Washington goalie Craig Billington will arrive three hours early for tonight's NHL game, as he has for the last 15 years. The fact that he is the starting goalie for the Southeast Division champion Capitals in their opener won't change a thing. "I've been a starter and a backup," Billington said. "I've split games. I've been an All-Star. I've been bought out of a contract. And I've had no job at all. It's better than having been an All-Star every year of my career. There have been so many situations in my life, and I've learned from all of them.
