THE PENGUINS have four points atop the Atlantic Division. The Rangers and the Flyers have none at the bottom. No, it isn't too early to keep an eye on the standings in this lockout-induced, 48-game sprint to the Stanley Cup playoffs. James Neal scored twice, linemate Evgeni Malkin had three assists, and the Penguins chased Henrik Lundqvist from the net in the second period of a 6-3 victory over the Rangers in New York's home opener Sunday. The Penguins haven't even played a home game.

Chris Conner started his day at practice in Wilkes-Barre and ended it as a top star on Broadway. Just hours after being called up by the Penguins, Conner scored twice to lead Pittsburgh to a 4-2 victory over the slumping Rangers last night in New York. It wasn't the forward's first time on the big stage, as he had a six-game stint with Pittsburgh this season and a bit of a longer run with the Dallas Stars in previous years, but he made the most of this chance. Conner staked the Penguins to a 1-0 lead early in the first period and then netted the winning goal in the third.

WITH PENGUINS captain Sidney Crosby watching from the press box, Washington's Jason Chimera scored off a turnover in the first period and Tomas Vokoun made 30 saves, giving the host Capitals a 1-0 victory last night. It was Pittsburgh's sixth consecutive loss and first shutout of the season. The Penguins have scored only six goals in the skid. The Capitals have won seven of eight at home. Pittsburgh is on its longest losing skid since a 10-game drought in 2006. Crosby was wearing a jacket and tie while stationed in the press box. Still sidelined by concussion symptoms, he hasn't played since Dec. 5, and only now is ready to resume skating.

Pittsburgh coach Eddie Johnston and the Boston Bruins' Brian Sutter agreed that the Penguins got more than they deserved. "We stole one tonight," Johnston admitted after the host Penguins beat the Bruins, 5-4, in overtime last night. "We deserved better," Sutter said. "We did a lot of the things we came in to do. Just look at the shots. We didn't play that well in the first period, but we were good in the second and even better in the third. It's a tough one to lose. " Kevin Stevens scored his third goal of the game, on a power play, with 51 seconds left in overtime as the Penguins improved to 4-0-9 in overtime this season.

MATT MOULSON scored a goal and assisted on another, Evgeni Nabokov stopped 37 shots and the New York Islanders dominated the listless Penguins, 4-1, Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. John Tavares scored for the second straight game for New York while Michael Grabner collected his fourth goal of the season and Casey Cizikas found the net for the first time in his career. It was more than enough to send the Penguins to their third loss in four games. Pascal Dupuis scored with just over a minute remaining to avoid the shutout.

Mario Lemieux stayed around for the whole game this time, but Washington coach Jim Schoenfeld didn't. Lemieux, ejected in the second period of Pittsburgh's four-overtime win Wednesday night, scored his first goal of the series as the Penguins topped the visiting Capitals, 4-1, last night, and took a 3-2 playoff series lead. Schoenfeld was escorted off the ice with 1:05 left after two long breaks for fighting. He said he was asked to leave for his own safety after he got in an altercation with Pens assistant Bryan Trottier.

SIDNEY CROSBY was on the ice for three of Pittsburgh's five goals, and defenseman Kris Letang was out there for all of them. The Penguins are suddenly the picture of health, and the NHL's hottest team is making the Eastern Conference playoff race a fight to the finish. Crosby returned from a 40-game absence caused by concussion symptoms, and Letang rejoined the lineup after missing the past five because of the same ailment. That gave the Penguins their most complete lineup in months, and visiting Pittsburgh responded with a thorough, 5-2 victory over the East-leading New York Rangers last night.

Visitors to Adventure Aquarium will soon see a slightly more populated penguin exhibit. Two African penguin chicks were born last month, the Camden aquarium announced Tuesday. The baby penguins were born April 6 and 10. Their genders aren't yet known, and they haven't been named. Officials said the chicks were doing well and had grown from the size of a golf ball to about 3 pounds over five weeks. When full grown, African penguins range from 5 to 9 pounds. "They are very active, growing strong and have hearty appetites," Michele Pagel, the curator of birds and mammals, said in a statement.

High-scoring winger Jake Voracek appears ready to return to the Flyers lineup Saturday afternoon against Pittsburgh, and his addition should bolster a lineup that excelled without him. "It's huge for us," defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere said Friday after practice in Voorhees. "He's a staple of our team, and just to see how good we did without him is pretty much amazing. Just can't wait to see how much better we are with him. " Coach Dave Hakstol said it would be a game-time decision on whether Voracek plays.

The long: Eight of the world's smallest, bluest penguins left a zoo in Sydney, Australia, to live in . . . Camden. See them swim, preen, stretch their li'l flippers, and be adorable behind glass at their new li'l indoor beach. The short: You're gonna wanna take one home. (You can't.) The demo: Ironically, the taller the better. If you're under four feet, it's hard to see above the water level to the sand. Lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" from moms. Color: Called blue. Looks more gray, maybe slate.

The Flyers and Penguins will play outdoor games against each other in 2017 and 2019, a source close to the situation confirmed. "It's always fun games against Pittsburgh, and I know for a fact that fans love when we play Pittsburgh, so it's going to make it even more fun," captain Claude Giroux said. Next season's game will be played on Feb. 18 at Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Flyers and Penguins in the NHL. Penn State was explored as a possible site, but the cost was too high, the source said.

On Saturday morning of my first week studying abroad in Australia, I embarked on a daylong tour of Phillip Island. The ultimate draw of the tour was supposed to be the famous "penguin parade," during which penguins come back from sea as the sun sets. Surprisingly, the most memorable part of my day ended up having nothing to do with penguins. Our tour group's day began with a visit to an animal park, where we got to see characteristic Australian animals such as koalas and dingos. We were even able to take selfies with kangaroos.
