NHL Penguins@Flyers 7 p.m. [VERSUS] It's hockey night in Baltimore - I mean, if it's ever hockey night in Baltimore. The Pittsburgh Penguins, with 20-year-old phenom Sidney Crosby (14 goals, 26 assists), are in Philadelphia to play the nasty Flyers, who have been told by the league to knock it off. Last week, Philadelphia management was told it is on the verge of franchise discipline for any more rough play. It'll be interesting to see if the Flyers keep their mitts off Crosby.

Penguins owner Mario Lemieux watched most of the team's 90-minute practice Monday, which made it no ordinary day for the Stanley Cup champions. The boss was in the house, and he clearly wasn't there to socialize after an 0-4 road trip. The coach wasn't very happy either. Dan Bylsma had scheduled a day off after two games in Florida in as many days. Instead he put his players through one of their longest practices of the season. Maybe captain Sidney Crosby said it best: When a team is slumping the way Pittsburgh is, with five consecutive losses and the NHL's reigning scoring champion not producing, a day off is a luxury.

Washington - -Wednesday night began with the Verizon Center pulsating to "Let's Go Caps," chanted by a capacity crowd at an eardrum-splitting decibel level. But by the time the game had reached the halfway mark, the building was motionless and silent, filled with stunned fans who couldn't believe what was unfolding. Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals were behind five goals to their most reviled rival en route to a humbling 6-2 defeat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

WASHINGTON - - Sidney Crosby scored the first two goals Sunday. Alex Ovechkin, though, ended up doing the Pittsburgh Penguins captain one better. Ovechkin recorded his first regular-season hat trick in almost a year, then assisted on Mike Knuble's overtime winner at Verizon Center, where the fans who trudged through 2 feet of snow were treated to a 5-4, come-from-behind win that extended the Washington Capitals' winning streak to 14 games. "You can tell when he's having one of his days," coach Bruce Boudreau said of Ovechkin.

There are pros to idea Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun I used to be totally against this because I thought the Olympics should be for amateurs. But who are we kidding? Many of the Olympic "amateurs" make more in a year than you and I will make in our lifetimes. So now I'm all for NHL players, and for that matter, NBA players, representing their countries in the Olympics. I want to see the best players from each country playing against the best. And in the case of the NHL, whose season goes on in almost anonymity, any exposure gained by having your elite athletes playing on center stage in the Olympics can only help more people find the sport.

Woods falls out of first with shaky finish golf Bubba Watson overpowered Quail Hollow and wound up with a perfect day - he tied a course record with a 30 on the front nine, shot 7-under-par 65 to share the lead, and doesn't have to play with Tiger Woods. Retief Goosen, a two-time U.S. Open champion who thrives on fast greens, had another 68 on Friday to join Watson atop the leader board at the PGA Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte, N.C., with an 8-under 136. Woods seized control with a 55-foot birdie putt on the ninth hole and had a two-shot lead for most of the back nine until a sloppy finish, making bogeys on two of the last three holes for a 72 that left him one shot behind.

WASHINGTON - After 65 minutes, still no one's hand was raised. Forget it. There's an easier way to settle this. No, not the game - though every time the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals meet, the excitement and intensity results in some pretty good hockey. With the regular season winding down, the final matchup between the two teams was overshadowed by the battle between two men - Alex the Great and Sid the Kid. The young superstars Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby have been anointed to carry the NHL on their collective shoulders to new heights.
