The The New York Rangers arrived in Washington a road-weary and wayward bunch, allowing an NHL-high five goals per game and unable to establish any consistency under their new head coach. But some habits, like rendering the Capitals ineffective, appear as intact as ever. The Capitals spent most of Wednesday night's contest committing turnovers and chasing New York around the defensive zone, as they followed up their first regulation win with a dud. Washington fell, 2-0, at Verizon Center received a harsh reminder there is still much to improve upon as they were thwarted, again, by the Rangers.

Every NHL team aspires to play perfect defense. The Montreal Canadiens are coming close to actually doing it.Through five weeks of the season, the Canadiens are playing defense like it hasn't been played in years. After 17 games, the Canadiens' goals-against average of 1.40 was nearly half of the second-place Vancouver Canucks (2.71), and the Canadiens had allowed only eight goals during a nine-game winning streak.No team has allowed an average of less than 2 goals per game for 36 years. The 1955-56 Canadiens surrendered just 131 goals in 70 games, an average of 1.87 per contest, on the way to their first of five straight Stanley Cups.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals will attempt to set their all-time home unbeaten streak today against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but there will be more on the line than just 13 games without a loss at the Capital Centre.The Capitals, 1-3-1 in their past five games, are in second place, but just four points out of fifth in an improving Patrick Division.With Patrick Division-leading Pittsburgh here today, Calgary, second in the Smythe Division, here Tuesday and then a four-game road trip to Minnesota, St. Louis, Los Angeles and San Jose after the All-Star break, the Capitals need a return to last month's form, when they were 10-3-1.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals gave coach Terry Murray something he could have done without last night: another example of just how an NHL team can blow a two-goal lead without really trying.For the third straight game, the Capitals watched, almost calmly, while the Quebec Nordiques rallied to force overtime and gain a 3-3 tie on a goal by Martin Rucinsky.The Capitals, who dominated early on, had just two shots in overtime. The closest they came to winning was a Michal Pivonka shot on a two-on-one break with 17.8 seconds to go. But Quebec goalie Ron Hextall made his 38th save of the game.

DALLAS - Health care spending grew 7.5 percent in the first half of 2004, the smallest increase since 2000 but only fractionally less than the two previous periods, according to a study to be released today. The study, by the Washington-based Center for Studying Health Systems Change, suggests that the spending retreat has slowed after falling from a high of 10 percent in the second half of 2001. And it means that employers will probably continue to shift more of the burden of health care costs to workers, industry executives and study authors said.

The vandalism of 14 newly constructed Ellicott City homes in the past two weeks has baffled police and cost four homebuilders as much as $25,000 to repair each house.The signature of the vandal -- or vandals -- is breaking into newly built homes and flooding them by turning on all the faucets or breaking water pipes, leading police to believe that the same person or group is responsible.In one of the houses -- the only one that does not fit the flooding pattern -- walls were spray-painted with lewd language and pictures.

When you blow a two-goal lead in the third period at home, it's hardly a cause for celebration. But considering the way things have gone for the Bandits against Kentucky this season, they can probably live with last night's 4-4 tie.In eight previous games, the Thoroughblades had beaten the Bandits seven times with a tie. They can thank their lucky stars the record reads 7-0-2 today.Inside the last 10 seconds of regulation, Bobby Wren, who had scored his 12th goal earlier and assisted on another, came flying in ahead of the field on the left wing.
