SCOTT GOMEZ' season was over before the Montreal Canadiens held their first practice. The Canadiens sent their underperforming center home for the rest of the season before they opened training camp on Sunday, ensuring their ability to buy out the his contract next summer to remove his team-high $7.3 million salary cap hit from the books. Under the collective bargaining agreement signed Saturday, the cap is to plunge by about $10 million next season, but teams will be allowed two "amnesty" buyouts to help reach the cap. However, if a player is injured, he cannot be bought out. General manager Marc Bergevin said it was safest for the team that Gomez not play this season.

The trip got under way yesterday when the Devils boarded a bus after practice for a flight to Tampa, Fla., and the season opener against the Lightning tomorrow night.

Jaromir Jagr assisted on New York's three power-play goals in the first period as the Rangers handed the visiting Washington Capitals their first loss of the season, 3-1, last night. The Rangers brought in an anemic power-play unit that had failed in 15 chances over the season's first three games. But that all changed as Scott Gomez, Martin Straka and Michal Rozsival connected - with Jagr's help - in the first period when the Rangers had six power-play chances. Alex Ovechkin scored his 100th career goal for Washington, in his 167th NHL game.

MONTREAL Canadiens forward Scott Gomez and an assistant coach got into a shouting match at practice yesterday. Assistant Randy Ladouceur apparently was upset at what he considered a lack of intensity during a drill. Gomez is among the league's highest-paid players, but has scored only one goal for the struggling Canadiens. The spat continued for several minutes, first in front of other players before the two left to exchange more words elsewhere. Gomez was asked if he had lost the will to play.

Martin Brodeur didn't have to work very hard for his latest shutout. Brodeur made 22 saves for the 108th blanking of his NHL career and Travis Zajac scored the winning goal late in the second period as New Jersey snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-0 victory over the visiting Florida Panthers last night. Neither the Devils nor Brodeur were spectacular. New Jersey went back to basics, smothering the Panthers defensively to avoid their first four-game skid since dropping six straight late last season.

During his 15-year career, Martin Brodeur has played for Stanley Cups, Olympic gold medals and world championships. A relatively easy 26-save performance last night in the New Jersey Devils' 5-2 win over the hapless Phoenix Coyotes has put Brodeur in position to return home to Montreal and play for something just as important - Patrick Roy's NHL mark for career wins by a goaltender. "Now, there's something to really get excited about, with the possibility of tying it on Saturday," Brodeur said after the Devils set a franchise record with their ninth straight home win. "I'm happy we won and I'll be very happy to tie it in Montreal.

Sean Avery found yet another way to annoy Martin Brodeur, and forced the NHL to change a rule in his honor. The Hall of Fame resume of the New Jersey Devils goalie doesn't resonate with Avery, the New York Rangers forward who has turned agitation into an art form. During a 5-on-3 power play in New Jersey's 4-3 overtime playoff victory Sunday night, Avery planted himself in the crease with his back to the action and faceguarded Brodeur. Holding his stick upward, Avery waved it side to side and up and down to block Brodeur's vision in a newfangled method of screening.
