If you ask the girls on the Bryn Mawr hockey team, they'd tell you that playing Holton-Arms is the only game that matters. The fact that Thursday's game was for the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League title just made it mean that much more. Unfortunately for the Mawrtians (10-3), they needed a little more. Defending champion Bryn Mawr took a one-goal lead early in the third period but couldn't hold it en route to a 3-2 loss to the Panthers at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel. Blair Greenwald scored two goals — the tying goal and the game-winner — to lead Bethesda's Holton Arms (10-7)

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The Skipjacks were in a building that had not been the site of many victories for them, facing a goaltender who had been hard to beat.But last night they changed all of that.Behind goalie Duane Derksen and a five-goal third period against usually stingy Olaf Kolzig, the Skipjacks defeated the Rochester Americans, 9-3, in an American Hockey League Southern Division game before 4,471 at the War Memorial.A week ago, the Amerks humiliated the Skipjacks, 11-2, with Kolzig barely breaking a sweat.

CHICAGO — The Blackhawks delivered on their promise to tighten up their defense and lend a little help to their assaulted goalie Monday night in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. It didn't lack for dramatics though. The Hawks took a 2-0 series lead on Monday night at the United Center with a 2-1 victory against the Flyers when goalie Antti Niemi held the lead in the face of 15 third-period shots. "Both teams kind of got back to playing better defensively and playing smarter with the puck," Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith said.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- It was the first game of an 84-game season, but for the Washington Capitals, it was one that shouldn't have gotten away.They sat around in this windy, central plains city for three days plotting victory. And then, when they had it in their hands, when they had a 4-3 lead with 10:07 gone in the third period, they let it slip away.That was the hard part. That's what had Caps coach Terry Murray looking a little grim last night, after his Caps lost to the Winnipeg Jets, 6-4, before a sellout crowd of 15,363 at the Winnipeg Arena.

Baltimore Skipjacks coach Rob Laird likes to call games like last night's 7-6 victory over the Hershey Bears "character-builders."But he saw the flaws in his young team during the third period, when the Jacks nearly squandered a three-goal lead they held with 7 minutes, 50 seconds remaining."

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - - Facing an opponent saddled with the second-lowest payroll in the NHL and one win in its first eight games, there was every reason to believe Alex Ovechkin and the star-laden Washington Capitals would put Saturday night's game away early. Instead, they had to work overtime. The Capitals needed a goal from minor league call-up Keith Aucoin in the final minutes of regulation and another goal from Brooks Laich one minute into extra time to beat the New York Islanders, 3-2, and headed home from a two-game road trip with four points.

WASHINGTON - - The Washington Capitals earned a point in the standings, but their performance against the New Jersey Devils did little to quell concerns about their ability to hold a late lead or stay out of the penalty box at critical times. The Capitals lost their fourth straight game Monday at Verizon Center, 3-2, in the shootout after blowing a one-goal lead with under seven minutes left to play, then giving the Devils a power play in overtime. "Even though we have a fairly veteran team, it's learning how to win again," coach Bruce Boudreau said.

WASHINGTON - -New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist gifted a goal to Nicklas Backstrom early in the third period and then the center scored again a few minutes later to put the Washington Capitals ahead. It should have been enough. It wasn't. Rangers sniper Marian Gaborik scored two goals of questionable quality on Jos? Theodore in the span of 2 minutes, 33 seconds to send the Capitals to their second consecutive loss, 4-3 at Verizon Center. "Anytime you have the lead [late] in the game, you have to [win]

WASHINGTON - -The Washington Capitals unfurled another Southeast Division championship banner before a boisterous, red-clad crowd Saturday night at Verizon Center. Then the most exciting team in franchise history showed exactly why it's regarded as such. Alex Ovechkin, Mike Knuble and Brooks Laich each scored before 14 minutes had been played, and the Capitals took a five-goal lead into the third period before hanging on against the Toronto Maple Leafs, 6-4. "I was once told that anytime you win you shouldn't complain, because there are so many times you lose," Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said.

Tortorella suspended; Pens eliminate Flyers hockey New York Rangers coach John Tortorella has been suspended by the NHL for one game because he squirted a fan with water and threw a water bottle into the stands, striking a spectator in Washington. Tortorella will miss Game 6 on Sunday when New York hosts the Capitals with a chance to advance to the second round of the playoffs. The NHL ruled Saturday night that Tortorella's actions Friday night during the third period of the Rangers' 4-0 loss that cut their series lead to 3-2 warranted a serious punishment.

The Bandits, ahead by two goals early and by a goal entering the third period, dragged their famed prevent defense out of mothballs at Baltimore Arena last night.Which is a roundabout way of saying the Bandits blew another potential AHL victory by buttoning up into their defensive shell. Hammering 25 shots at beleaguered goalie Mike Bales during the third period, the St. John's Maple Leafs tied the game 3-3 late in regulation, and that's how it ended after overtime.With just 2: 27 remaining in regulation and after putting constant pressure on Bales, the Leafs evened the count on Danil Markov's first goal of the year.
