It's been 21 years since the Washington Capitals have won this many games in a row. It's also been a while since the NHL has had a team that can score goals quite like this. The score-at-will Capitals made it look easy once again last night, scoring three times in 2 1/2 minutes early in the third period in a 5-1 victory over the visiting Anaheim Ducks. "The guys like what they're doing - and they like winning," Washington coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We talked about it in the dressing room in between periods - we're going to go after them.

Less than 90 seconds into the game, the Washington Capitals scored with an extra man on the ice. With less than a minute to go in the first period, they did it again.

Mike Knuble and Jason Chimera did the damage last night and the Capitals moved to the brink of clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a 5-2 victory over the visiting Florida Panthers.

AFTER ALL the wheeling and dealing Ron Hextall did in the five days leading up to yesterday, the Flyers general manager was one of the least active executives on the NHL's opening day of free agency. The free-agent signing period began at noon and the Flyers locked in one of their priorities - a backup goalie to Steve Mason - in just under an hour, signing Michal Neuvirth to a reported two-year, $3.25 million contract with a cap hit of $1.625 million. That left them about $4.5 million under the $71.4 million cap ceiling for the Flyers to spend on a "skilled forward" - another of Hextall's priorities entering the offseason - and a deal with restricted free-agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto.

The Flyers signed backup goalie Michal Neuvirth on Wednesday and gained an insurance policy in case starter Steve Mason has another injury-plagued season. Both goalies were selected in the 2006 draft. Neuvirth was chosen by Washington in the second round with the 34th overall pick, 35 slots before Mason, who went in the third round (69th overall) to Columbus. The Flyers signed Neuvirth to a two-year deal for $3.25 million, with an annual salary-cap hit of $1.625 million. Neuvirth, 27, a Czech Republic native, spent last season with Buffalo and the New York Islanders, and has a seven-year career record of 66-63-17 with a 2.73 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage.

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.

Playoff hockey is the time of year when guys rupture spleens and miss a shift. Softer players might miss a period. It is a time for long games and longer beards. It is when Jim Jackson is at his best calling Flyers games and Mike Emrick is at his best calling seemingly every other series. Here is a quick look at the madness, which begins Wednesday with the Flyers-Penguins: EASTERN CONFERENCE N.Y. Rangers (1) vs. Ottawa (8) Season series: Senators, 3-1 Rangers goaltender: Henrik Lundqvist had a 1.97 goals-against average and was the team's MVP. Senators goaltender: Craig Anderson was 33-22-6 in his first full season in Ottawa.

THE FLORIDA Panthers ended one of the longest playoff droughts in major North American sports Thursday night despite a 4-2 loss to the host Washington Capitals, who also earned a postseason bid to complete the eight-team field for the Eastern Conference. Both teams qualified after Buffalo lost, 2-1, to the Flyers. Still to be determined is the winner of the Southeast Division. The Panthers are in the playoffs for the first time in 12 years, but they also will win their first division title in franchise history if they gain at least a point at home against Carolina or if the Capitals lose to the New York Rangers on Saturday, the final day of the regular season.
