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.

THE VIDEO tribute began to roll during the final television timeout yesterday and as soon as Paul Devorski's name flashed on the big screen, boos rained down from all corners of Wells Fargo Center. Devorski was just glad the video didn't play earlier in the third period with fans still hot and bothered after Jake Voracek's 10-minute misconduct. "They said it was coming and they were going to do it right at the start of the third," Devorski said. "The fans were kind of restless right then, so they held off until near the end. It worked out pretty good.

THE FIRE didn't need to be stoked. As the seconds ticked off the clock on the Flyers' win in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, the two teams were jawing and Ryan White remembered what he heard. "They were chirping," White said. "Just after the game, saying that they're going to the playoffs . . . saying that we're going to be done in a week. Of course we are. They had a couple stumbles this week. It was nice to put another 'L' in their cup. " For the Flyers, yesterday was their Stanley Cup playoffs.

With four minutes remaining in the Flyers' final game against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins during another unfulfilled season, the Wells Fargo Center crowd started chants of "You can't beat us!" There has been little for Flyers fans to cheer about during the last month, but they found a worthy one Sunday. Even though the Flyers will finish the season this week with one of the NHL's worst records, they will at least have an undefeated mark against the Penguins. The Flyers finalized the four-game season sweep with a 4-1 victory in an Easter Sunday matinee that weakened Pittsburgh's postseason push.

PITTSBURGH - The man in charge of putting together the NHL's scheduling matrix must have been cheered last June, when this year's slate was finally released. Finding a way then to get the Flyers and Penguins to collide twice on national broadcasts in the penultimate week of the regular season? Brilliant. Today? Not so much, with the Flyers set to miss the Stanley Cup playoffs for the third time in the last two decades. Turns out, bad blood alone isn't enough to keep the hatred circulating in what was the NHL's best rivalry.

Flyers center Sean Couturier knows he can help teammate Jake Voracek by shutting down Sidney Crosby when he's matched against the Penguins superstar Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. Entering Tuesday, Voracek was third in the NHL scoring race with 76 points, trailing Crosby (79) and the Islanders' John Tavares (77). "I just try to do my job and do whatever I can do to help the team win," said Couturier, a defensive specialist who is frequently matched against Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.

IT MIGHT BE 2 years away, but the Flyers and Penguins have been working together behind the scenes to pitch an outdoor game between the teams to the NHL and broadcast partner NBC. Flyers chief operating officer Shawn Tilger revealed that news at a "town-hall meeting" between team executives and season-ticketholders Thursday night. Tilger said the pitch is for the contest to be played at a "certain stadium in Pennsylvania" in 2017 to commemorate the 50th year of both franchises.

When the temperature dips below 30 in Camden, as it did Friday, some of the residents at the Adventure Aquarium get restless. They shiver and pull their wings close to their bodies. Like anyone who does not like cold weather, they may get a little lethargic. That's how scientists at the aquarium know it's time to bring the penguins indoors, said Ann-Marie Bisagno, supervisor of birds and mammals. Unlike the emperor penguins, which people associate with arctic climates, the aquarium's residents are African black-footed penguins, from the southernmost tip of South Africa.

It had been at the top of my bucket list for several years, so when circumstances made it possible for me to travel in the winter of 2014, I quickly booked my trip the preceding spring. Who could have predicted that such a brutal winter lay ahead? With one crippling winter storm after another, the obvious question posed by friends after learning of my upcoming vacation was where I was headed. More than a few brows were raised when I meekly replied, "Antarctica. " After coping with the relentless weather and five days without power in February, even I began to question the wisdom of my choice.
