The Bruins lead the Washington Capitals by nine points and the New Jersey Devils by 10 in the race for the best record in the East.

Montreal was hoping the Flyers, coming off a one-for-the-ages, rally-from-all-but-dead victory over the Boston Bruins, would suffer an emotional letdown in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Except for some early sluggishness from the men in orange, the Canadiens pretty much found an energized, motivated-to-the-hilt club. The result Sunday night, thanks in part to the hosts' ability to cash in on two of six power-play opportunities, was a 6-0 blowout victory for the Flyers at the Wachovia Center.

WASHINGTON - If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best, right? Well, that's what the Flyers face now. The Flyers, after defeating the Capitals, 3-2, in overtime last night, will take on Montreal, the Eastern Conference's top seed, in the second round beginning tomorrow. The Canadiens needed seven games to swat away a pesky Bruins team that almost made a miraculous comeback from a 3-1 deficit. The Canadiens closed out the first-round series on Monday by thumping the Bruins, 5-0. The Flyers lost all four meetings with Montreal this season by a combined score of 15-6.

The New Jersey Devils signed Brian Rolston to quarterback the power play. The move is paying off. Back up to speed after an ankle injury, Rolston scored a power-play goal 1 minute, 43 seconds into overtime to give the Devils a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators yesterday in Newark, N.J. Rolston's winner came on a slap shot from about 40 feet with Senators defenseman Brian Lee and Devils forward Brian Gionta standing in front of Ottawa goalie...

MICHAEL RYDER scored in the first and third periods, and Kari Lehtonen came within 3.4 seconds of a shutout in the Dallas Stars' 2-1 win over the Red Wings on Tuesday night in Detroit. Lehtonen made 39 saves, but allowed Damien Brunner's first career goal in the final seconds. Ryder had already added an insurance goal with 14:26 to play. Detroit's Jimmy Howard had 30 saves - including 16 in the second period - to keep his team in it. Jaromir Jagr went without a point for Dallas for a second straight game after posting two goals and two assists in the season opener Saturday.

THE CANADIENS weren't supposed to be here, either. That will bring little solace to mourners in Montreal, but it's true. It took their eighth seed to make this the lowest-caliber conference final in NHL history, now over after last night's 4-2 Flyers win. The Habs' faithful, perhaps forever, and their players, at least for now, will recall only that they overcame a 3-1 series deficit to beat the top-seeded Capitals and Alex Ovechkin, then...

Whether it was for public consumption or out of a true sense of belief, the Montreal Canadiens left the Wachovia Center after Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Flyers saying they were buoyed by their performance and optimistic they will solve goalie Michael Leighton when the Eastern Conference finals shift to the Bell Centre on Thursday for Game 3. Overcoming a two-games-to-none Flyers advantage may not seem so daunting to a club that shocked No. 1 seed Washington...

Montreal coach Guy Carbonneau was asked what was working for the Canadiens with the man advantage. "Everything," he replied. Tomas Plekanec had two goals and two assists, all on the power play, to help the visiting Canadiens beat Carolina last night, 7-4. "We wanted to get the puck on the net and get rebounds," Plekanec said. "We did all the right things, and it paid off. " Montreal scored five power-play goals, four in the first period, en route to its third straight victory.

AN NHL routine gone missing for 262 days made an overdue return Sunday: Alex Ovechkin scored a goal, and the Washington Capitals won. Like old times. The two-time league MVP nailed a one-timer from the left circle on a power play, skated a few feet, bent his left knee and unleashed that familiar downward celebratory fist pump. He then collected the customary row of high-fives as he skated past the Capitals bench. And, naturally, it proved to be the decisive goal in the game, coming with 14:49 remaining in a 3-2 victory over the visiting Buffalo Sabres.

WASHINGTON - Two days ago, Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau devised a foolproof strategy to beat lava-hot Montreal goaltender Jaroslav Halak. One problem: It's illegal. And unethical. Other than that though, it was a good plan. "I've faced those goalies," Boudreau said after practice Tuesday. "And you just want to take your stick and hit them over the head with it. "You can't do that. " So you need a second plan. The second plan was this: Fire as many pucks at Halak as you can, hitting people, posts and crossbars until the puck finally goes in. Stand in his crease, push defensemen into his crease, and when someone pulls the stick from your hand, as was the case for John Carlson late in the third period last night, skate into the crease and knock the goalie down.

It's fitting that tomorrow's NHL All-Star Game is in Montreal, since this is the Canadiens' 100th anniversary. The 6 p.m. game at the Bell Centre celebrates the 2008-09 all-stars as much as it does the Canadiens' century of success. It's a celebration of Alex Ovechkin and Jean Beliveau, of Evgeni Malkin and Henri Richard, of Henrik Lundqvist and Ken Dryden. It's a celebration of this season's surprise teams - the Boston Bruins and San Jose Sharks come to mind - and the players who have worn the bleu, blanc et rouge sweaters and won 24 Stanley Cup championships.
