Tom Barrasso didn't anticipate the great, energy-sapping sadness that would come with the death of his father. And then, still trying to cope, he learned his daughter, Ashley, 14, had again been found to have neuroblastoma, a cancer that has a survival rate of less than 20 percent in adolescents. Now, after taking a year off from the NHL to be with his daughter and regain his focus, Barrasso is back, manning the co-No. 1 goalie position for the Southeast Division-leading Carolina Hurricanes and playing better, perhaps, than he was when he went away.

LANDOVER -- So, you thought this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series would be a sweep? In the Washington Capitals-Pittsburgh Penguins series? Not these two. These two love going at it over the long haul. It's the way they play the game.For two games, the Capitals, with tremendous team play and goaltending from Olie Kolzig, made Pittsburgh pay for its defensive lapses and cockiness.But last night, the Penguins had no lapses and Penguins goalie Tom Barrasso (38 saves) came within a Sylvain Cote shot from the point on the team's 10th power play of collecting his fifth postseason shutout with a 4-1 victory.

The Washington Capitals know their position against Pittsburgh in the NHL Patrick Division finals all too well.Just two weeks ago in the semifinal round against the New York Rangers, the 2-1 series deficit was identical, with Game 4 on tap at the Capital Centre.Well, almost."Yes, we were down 2-1 in that series but we were embarrassed [6-0] in the third game," defenseman Rod Langway said. "Actually, this is a better situation. We know what happened against the Rangers, so it's not time to start counting us out yet. We never said this would be a five-game series."

LANDOVER -- What is this, Steel Curtain II?Suddenly, the Pittsburgh Penguins, who gave up goals in wholesale lots during the regular season, are as stingy as their Steel City football counterparts of the 1970s, featuring Mean Joe Greene, L.C. Greenwood, Jack Lambert et al.For the second time within a 48-hour period the Washington Capitals got what they wanted against the Pens last night, a tight-checking, low-scoring game. And lost, 3-1.The Caps now trail their Patrick Division playoff final, 3-1, with Game 5 in Pittsburgh tomorrow night.
