NHL Flames@Capitals 7 P.M. [CSN, CSN+] The story line is that the Washington Capitals were in the midst of a surprising playoff run when they ran into a brick wall over the weekend, losing close games to the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins. The Caps need this one badly if they hope to have any shot at qualifying for the playoffs.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals didn't have to look far for their eighth-round selection in the 1994 entry draft.With the 197th overall choice, the Capitals took left wing Chris Patrick, son of team president Dick Patrick. Chris, 6 feet 5 and 200 pounds, attended Kent School in Connecticut and will go to Princeton this fall."He is a big player whose four years at Princeton will help him develop leg strength and improve his skating," Jack Button, the Capitals' director of player personnel, said in a statement.

NEW YORK -- The Washington Capitals walked down the middle of East 39th Street yesterday, trying to save their dress shoes and sneakers from the piles of snow that covered the sidewalks of New York.There was no traffic following one of the biggest snowstorms here in 18 years. The city was quiet. No taxis, few buses. People walking, laughing and sliding down the middle of streets as if auditioning for a Currier and Ives print.Neither was there a game against the New York Rangers last night.
