New York Islanders left wing Derek King likely will miss the rest of the season after he suffered a broken jaw and a concussion in yesterday's 7-5 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.King, who was to undergo surgery to repair his jaw last night at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y., was skating right to left as he crossed the Winnipeg blue line in the final minute of the first period. Moments after he passed the puck to Zigmund Palffy, King was checked by Jets center Dallas Drake. King, 29, apparently was knocked unconscious by the hit and fell limply to the ice.He is the fifth Islander to suffer a concussion this season, joining Brett Lindros, Dennis Vaske, Ken Belanger and Palffy.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals know they're in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the 12th consecutive year, but there was no dancing in the locker room at USAir Arena yesterday.Instead, as the Capitals went out to practice for tonight's game against the Winnipeg Jets there was a quiet determination to go on from here."It feels pretty good," said defenseman Calle Johansson. "But we've seen when we let down, we're not that good a team. We've still got to be on our toes. We've got two games remaining and if we want to finish as high as we can, we have to win those games."
