The Washington Capitals' youth movement is beginning to pay dividends. For the first time in nearly 19 years, two Capitals - Steve Eminger and Petr Sykora - scored the first goal of their NHL careers in the same game during Washington's 3-2 victory over the visiting New York Rangers yesterday. The last time that happened was Oct. 13, 1986, when Yvon Corriveau and Michal Pivonka each scored their first career goals during the Capitals' 7-6 victory over the Rangers. Rookie Alex Ovechkin, the Capitals' leading scorer with five points, provided the winner on a power play at 9 minutes, 3 seconds of the third period.

Garnet Valley coach Bud Pruitt's commitment to younger players during the last two years is starting to pay big dividends, Pruitt says. The young Jaguars, who have no seniors on the team, have been making great strides since the season began and are a surprising third place in the Southern Chester County League. "I still think next year will be our big year," Pruitt said. "But I think all the players are really getting better and playing well. " Pruitt said that he decided to keep an influx of freshman on the varsity in each of the last two seasons because they had potential and indicated that they were committed to learning the game.

When Bob DiRico stepped down as coach of Conestoga's ice hockey team last spring, his three young assistant coaches were left in a quandary. Mike Stagnaro, Scott Cowan and Tony Parisi - who all played on the Pioneers' state championship team in 1984-85 - had to think quickly. "We wanted to keep all three of us involved," Stagnaro said. He said they were afraid that if one of them didn't become the head coach, someone else might come in with his own assistants. The three room together, and after talking things over, they decided that Stagnaro was best suited to pursue the job because he had the most time available.

The Truman Tigers ensured they would not go winless in their first season with a 14-4 decision Thursday over Bensalem. "I personally feel great," said coach John Czop, whose team rose to 1-3. "The kids felt super about it. " "I was disappointed," said losing coach Hank Quinn. "I did go in there with the expectation of winning today. The kids didn't play well. When you don't play well, you don't deserve to win. " "It's ironic: Our No. 3 player, Jason Reilly, had the low gross of the day, and he lost, 0-3," Czop said.

It's not supposed to be this easy. It's supposed to take time, a lot of hard work and endless patience. Failure should precede success, and only those who can overcome it get to achieve greatness. At the moment, the expected timeline for a professional athlete's progression is being eaten alive by the ultra-talented young in a variety of sports. Start with baseball. Fox's theme for Tuesday night's All-Star Game telecast was baseball's youth movement and it was born of validity.

Harold Katz, the owner of the 76ers, who was out of town when coach John Lucas raised the possibility of reactivating assistant coach Maurice Cheeks as a player, declared the idea null and void last night. "As the owner, I'm telling you we have no plans to bring him back, and we're going through with plans for retiring his number," Katz said during the Sixers-Los Angeles Clippers game last night at the Spectrum. "I had no idea about it until I came back from Florida on Wednesday.

For Ed Snider, founder of the Flyers, this offseason has a different feel from last year's. Even though the Flyers were eliminated in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second consecutive season, Snider is much more optimistic about the team's direction. "To me, every year we want to win the Cup, so if we don't win the Cup, it's an unsuccessful year," Snider said in a phone interview Tuesday from his mansion in Santa Barbara, Calif., just before playing in a tennis match.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It all started with Raul Ibanez. After winning the 2008 World Series, the Phillies decided to let their 31-year-old leftfielder, Pat Burrell, walk as a free agent. With his nagging injuries, Burrell seemed to be beyond his best years. That perception turned out to be accurate. Burrell hit .235 with 41 homers over the last three years and retired. But who did the Phillies sign to replace their fading outfielder? Ibanez, who was 36 at the time. It was a sound baseball move - Ibanez hit .264 with 70 homers for three division winning teams - but it also made the Phillies five years older at that position.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jonathan Singleton leaned over the railing on the visitors dugout at Bright House Field and stared. The Phillies were taking batting practice in the stadium where Singleton began his promising 2011 season as a Clearwater Thresher. "Hey, J!" John Mayberry Jr. yelled as he ran past. "How you doing?" Singleton said. By September, Singleton had turned 20, and he was a member of the Houston Astros organization. The former Phillies top prospect, traded for Hunter Pence last July, is enjoying life in an organization emphasizing youth.

Even though he has been used primarily as a penalty-killer and third- or fourth-line center, Sean Couturier has climbed among the rookie leaders in several offensive categories - and has probably made several teams second-guess themselves for bypassing him in last June's draft. Couturier slipped to No. 8 - the first-round pick the Flyers acquired as part of the deal that sent Jeff Carter to Columbus - but in the season's first month he has looked like a future star. In 13 games, Couturier has five goals, which, entering Sunday, was second among NHL rookies.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The last time Rory McIlroy was in this position, he basically threw up all over himself. It was last July, in the British Open at St. Andrews, a course he had always owned. But after opening with a 63, which matched the lowest score ever in any major, he followed up with an 80 in almost impossible wind conditions. Yesterday at the 75th Masters, he did a little better. The 21-year-old from Northern Ireland, whose 65 on Thursday gave him a share of the first-round lead, added a 3-under-par 69 that featured four birdies and his first bogey.

PENN WOOD HIGH has not won a Del-Val League title in football since 1994. That year, the Patriots went undefeated and had one of the best teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Since then, Penn Wood has undergone a swirling carousel of coaching changes and a program that sank into a dormant state, at one stretch going 1-11 for 4 straight years. Enter Sam Mormando in 2005. He arrived with a blueprint that would break off close to a decade's worth of corrosion - beginning with a youth movement at its foundation.
