The Washington Capitals' power play has some sting these days. Sergei Gonchar had a goal and three assists and host Washington produced five power-play goals in a 7-2 victory over the New York Rangers in a penalty-filled game yesterday. Robert Lang scored twice and Jaromir Jagr had a goal and two assists for Washington. "We had the power plays, we won the game," Jagr said. Calle Johansson, Kip Miller and Peter Bondra also scored for the Capitals, who are 2-0-2 in their last four games.

The way the Washington Capitals are playing, no obstacle seems too big. On an eight-game road trip, the Capitals erased a five-point deficit in the playoff race. They refused to be demoralized by the trade of popular center Adam Oates and downed the New Jersey Devils without three of their top defensemen. Peter Bondra had two goals and an assist to lead visiting Washington to a 3-1 victory over the Devils last night, moving the Capitals into a tie for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Anson Carter's second stint with Washington lasted as long as his first one. After just 19 games with the Capitals since returning in the trade that sent Jaromir Jagr to the New York Rangers, Carter was dealt yesterday to the Los Angeles Kings for forward Jared Aulin. Carter also played 19 games with the Caps in the 1996-97 season before being traded to Boston as part of the deal that brought Adam Oates to Washington. Carter joins Jagr, Peter Bondra, Robert Lang, Michael Nylander and Sergei Gonchar as veterans who were dealt by the Capitals since Jan. 23. In another trade, Matthew Barnaby was traded by the Rangers along with a third-round pick in this year's draft to Colorado for defensemen Chris McAllister and David Liffiton.

Playing the league's top team with a lineup that suggested they'd thrown in the towel, the Washington Capitals held on to their faint playoff hopes with an unusual rally. With many veterans out of the lineup, the Capitals somehow beat the visiting Dallas Stars, 2-1, last night on Brian Bellows's power play goal 35 seconds into overtime to snap a four-game winless streak. It was the first time this season the Capitals have won a game they trailed after two periods. Washington's backup goaltender started.

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar yesterday said he played the final two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a partially torn right medial collateral ligament, a major knee injury that can sideline a player for months. Gonchar, playing through the injury because he wanted to win the Cup for the first time in a career that began in 1994, was hurt on a knee-to-knee hit by Washington star Alex Ovechkin in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Gonchar returned for Game 7 of that series and played in the Eastern Conference finals against Carolina and the Cup Finals vs. Detroit without missing a game.

Like the penalty shot in Game 3 of the first round against Washington or the shorthanded goal in Game 2 Sunday against Pittsburgh, this looked so much like another Mike Richards moment. The Flyers' best forward in these Eastern Conference finals had squirted loose on a breakaway after out-hustling Pittsburgh's Ryan Whitney to the puck along the boards in the neutral zone. Just as Richards closed in on goalie Marc Andre-Fleury, Sergei Gonchar, sliding on his belly in a desperate lunge, reached around Richards for a textbook poke check, breaking loose the puck before Richards could snap off a shot.

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar will have arthroscopic surgery on his dislocated left shoulder tomorrow and will miss four to six months of the NHL season, the team said yesterday. Gonchar, one of the league's top offensive defensemen, has cartilage and ligament damage. He was hurt on a hit by Tampa Bay's David Koci in a Sept. 20 exhibition game. The 34-year-old Gonchar had 12 goals and 53 assists last season for 65 points, second among defensemen. Buffalo Sabres center Paul Gaustad underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb.

FIVE YEARS AGO, at the end of training camp, then-Flyers coach John Stevens brought his team together in the kitchen of the team's training facility to bake a cake. For the players, the exercise was hardly a lesson in home economics - but rather a real-life reminder that it takes many different ingredients to come together in perfect order to end up with a product worth consuming. It didn't take half a cup of coffee yesterday morning, as training camp opened for the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center, to notice the stark contrast in ingredients on the Flyers' blue line.

When the Chicago Blackhawks were in deep trouble in the second round of the playoffs, they used desperation to their advantage and pulled off a big comeback in an already impressive season. After the Blackhawks lost top defenseman Duncan Keith to a suspension before Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, Chicago didn't let the Los Angeles Kings get even, despite their dominant home record. Now that the top-seeded Blackhawks are just one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup Finals, they want to play with the same sense of urgency when they hit the ice at home for Game 5 on Saturday night.

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.

After a little push-and-shove, Sidney Crosby was still running his mouth, even as his helmet came off and a linesman tried to push him back toward his bench. Alex Ovechkin responded with a dismissive wave of the left hand, practically taunting the Pittsburgh Penguins star. It's official: The two biggest names in the NHL don't care for each other. Ovechkin is tired of Crosby's constant jawing, and Crosby has no love for Ovechkin's theatrics. The emotions were on display yesterday in Wahington as Ovechkin scored his league-leading 43rd goal and the Capitals thumped the Penguins, 5-2. "What can I say about him?"
