The Colorado Avalanche addressed their goaltending situation yesterday, acquiring Semyon Varlamov from Washington and signing 2002 Conn Smythe Trophy-winner Jean-Sebastien Giguere to a 2-year deal. Colorado also agreed to a 4-year contract with defenseman Jan Hejda and a 2-year deal with forward Chuck Kobasew in a busy opening day of free agency. In exchange for Varlamov, the Capitals will receive the Avalanche's first-round pick in 2012 and a conditional second-rounder in 2012 or 2013.

CAPITALS superstar Alex Ovechkin is busy spending his last days of summer in Moscow before heading back to North America for the start of another season. But that doesn't mean he hasn't kept up on the NHL's summer happenings - particularly in net. Ovechkin's Capitals made the steal of the summer when they signed free agent Tomas Vokoun to a 1-year deal worth just $1.5 million. Vokoun was the second-best available goaltender behind Ilya Bryzgalov, who signed here in Philadelphia for a full $49.5 million more.

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.

A NDREI MARKOV'S resurgence continued with a goal and an assist, and the Montreal Canadiens cruised to a 4-1 win Thursday night over the host Washington Capitals, who are 0-3 for the first time in nearly 2 decades. Finally healthy after twice tearing the ACL in his right knee, Markov was part of a second-period spree in which the Canadiens scored in all sorts of ways against a Capitals team that is out of sorts. In order, Montreal's goals came five-on-three, five-on-four and five-on-five in a little over 6 minutes to take a 3-0 lead.

There's nothing like juicy bulletin-board material to accompany the announcement of a starting goaltender. Jose Theodore was not only formally anointed the No. 1 goalie for the Washington Capitals yesterday, he also proved he can give as good as he can take when it comes to taking a dig at the opposition. The back-and-forth started when Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec was quoted in yesterday's edition of the Montreal newspaper La Presse, talking about the Capitals' goaltender situation.

Mark Recchi charged into the right corner with the game and the puck up for grabs. The Bruins' 42-year-old forward outmuscled 23-year-old Tim Kennedy and passed to Patrice Bergeron, who got off a quick shot from the low right circle. It was too quick for Sabres star goalie Ryan Miller. That goal with 7 minutes, 3 seconds left in the game broke a tie and gave the Bruins a 2-1 win last night in Boston and a 2-1 lead over Buffalo in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoffs.

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. If the last few games are any indication, a potentially powerful power play is awakening from its seasonlong slumber just in time for the playoffs. 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.

WASHINGTON - Four teams in the Eastern Conference have held a 3-1 series lead in the first round of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs. No team has been able to do what the Flyers did on Thursday night: Close it out. The Montreal Canadiens scored two goals in the first 7 minutes, 1 second of last night's Game 5 and hung on for a convincing 2-1 win to stave off elimination and ensure that the Flyers remain the NHL's only team to be safely in the second round....

The Ottawa Senators outscored the high-powered Washington Capitals to take the Northeast Division lead. Chris Phillips and Alex Kovalev scored in the third period, and Jason Spezza had a goal and two assists in Ottawa's 6-5 victory over visiting Washington last night. Brian Elliott made 19 saves to help the Senators win for the 13th time in 14 games. "I didn't have my best game and obviously with shooters like that, if you give them some empty space they're going to find the back of the net," said Elliott, who has won 11 of his 12 consecutive starts.

Yesterday in Denver, more than halfway across the country, the Avalanche welcomed goaltender Semyon Varlamov to Colorado with a news conference. Varlamov just as easily could have been Sergei Bobrovsky. According to sources, the Flyers began to shop Bobrovsky - the man they called "the goaltender of the future" as recently as May - to all suitors once they struck a 9-year deal with Ilya Bryzgalov on June 23. General manager Paul Holmgren vehemently denied it when asked whether Bobrovsky had been involved in trade talks.

BRIAN BOUCHER was getting lonely on the Flyers' bench. Prior to being pressed into service last night to start the second period - after the Flyers and Lightning combined to tie a franchise record with nine goals in the first period - Boucher had not seen the ice since Oct. 25, during which Sergei Bobrovsky reeled off 12 starts in a row. Only Montreal, Minnesota, Dallas and Washington had started their backup goaltender less than the Flyers....

In an upside-down, topsy-turvy Stanley Cup tournament, there's no way for the Flyers to get a handhold on their second-round series until it begins Saturday. Look around the Eastern Conference. The top three seeds - Washington, New Jersey, Buffalo - are gone. The three top goaltenders - Vezina Trophy finalists Martin Brodeur, Ryan Miller, and Ilya Bryzgalov - are gone. A No. 6 seed has home-ice advantage. That would be Boston, the team the Flyers will face. It is a scenario as unlikely as beating the Devils in the first round only to face Satan (as in Miroslav)

Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals, and maybe even Montreal's inability to score more goals in a dominant second period, drove Canadiens goalie Carey Price to a couple of piques of frustration. Ovechkin scored his second goal of the game with 8:51 left, sending visiting Washington to a 6-3 victory last night and a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference series. Ovechkin opened the scoring at 8:10 of the first period with the Capitals' first power-play goal of the series.
