WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals don't usually play well against the big, dominating Philadelphia Flyers, but last night the Capitals looked like a powerhouse equal to anything the Flyers wanted to throw at them. Using a strong performance by the top checking line - Steve Konowalchuk, Jeff Halpern and Mike Grier - a classic performance by goalie Olie Kolzig and an offensive outburst that warmed the heart of coach Bruce Cassidy, the Capitals sent the Flyers back to Philadelphia pondering the Caps' rousing 4-1 victory.

The Washington Capitals' preparation for tonight's game in Buffalo was going on as usual at Piney Orchard Ice Arena yesterday, but the scene was eerily different. It was quiet on the ice. Every skate blade scraping the surface grated on the ears. Every tap of the stick echoed around the boards. The electricity that had surrounded the Capitals' drive toward the final Eastern Conference playoff spot the last month was gone. That's the way it is the day after elimination. With two games left, the Caps know they aren't going anywhere.

Even when Skipjacks coach Barry Trotz spoke glowingly of his "Young Guns" before the season, he didn't imagine the rookies would be so productive.Offensive-minded kids, Trotz called them. Skillful. Quick. Upbeat. But inexperienced.As the Skipjacks prepare for games against the Utica Devils tonight and tomorrow night at the Baltimore Arena, Trotz notes with pride that he has five players among the American Hockey League's top 10 rookie scorers."It's a great sign, the way these kids in the [Washington]

PHILADELPHIA - The Washington Capitals, who have prided themselves on defense for at least two decades, came into last night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers 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.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals have gone beyond feeling as if they're walking a tightrope on ice skates. Last night, they played with the sense of urgency necessary to climb from three games below .500 and into the playoffs. But the Caps got precious little for it, as Washington lost to the Florida Panthers, 2-1. The Capitals made two - just two - costly mistakes, and that was the difference. And even those two blown coverages by the team's top line of Adam Oates, Jaromir Jagr, Dmitri Khristich, Joe Reekie and Sergei Gonchar that allowed goals by Ivan Novoseltsev and Pavel Bure might have been overcome if not for a stone-wall like performance by Florida goalie Roberto Luongo.

WASHINGTON - When Pittsburgh Penguins Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr and Jan Hrdina, one of the most feared lines in the NHL, skate on to the ice tonight at MCI Center in their Eastern Conference playoff opener, they will not be extremely happy. The reason for their discomfort will be the three men staring back at them in Washington Capitals uniforms - Steve Konowalchuk, Jeff Halpern and Ulf Dahlen. Konowalchuk, Halpern and Dahlen are not the most famous NHL players, but they are among the most tenacious.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals produced a microcosm of their season in this one game with the New York Rangers last night. Misfortune, brilliance and disappointment all were on view before a sellout crowd at USAir Arena.A two-goal deficit became a two-goal lead and then a 4-4 tie, as the Capitals earned a point."When we got our fourth goal, we stopped playing as aggressively as we had before," said Washington defenseman Mark Tinordi. "It's a good lesson for us to learn. You've got to play aggressively all the time."
