Capitals among East contenders; West race too tight to call

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Alex Ovechkin's familiar gap-toothed grin has returned with the Washington Capitals in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. Hardly anyone's smiling in the West, where the standings are far more convoluted heading into the post-All-Star break of the NHL schedule, which opens with 11 games Tuesday. ''It's hard,'' St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk...

Rangers 5, Pittsburgh 2

The New York Rangers (26-13-4) defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins (26-12-6) by a score of 5-2. For a box score, click here. Solid 60 minute game out of a team playing its third road game in 4 days. Can’t ask for a better effort given the circumstances.  The Rangers were just a Dan Boyle double tap shootout goal away from sweeping the season series with the Penguins. Not bad. A million...
