The Washington Capitals will try to keep their playoff hopes alive for another day, but must do so on Tuesday night against the Western Conference leading St. Louis Blues. The Capitals did themselves no favors with a recent 0-3-2 skid that was finally snapped with Saturdays 4-3 shootout victory over the New York Islanders. Washington has four games to play in the regular season and is four points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the Easts second wild card berth. The Blue Jackets also have four games remaining and host the Phoenix Coyotes tonight. Rookie Evgeny Kuznetsov was one of three goal-scorers for the Capitals in regulation on Saturday, then netted the lone tally of the shootout. Nicklas Backstrom and Joel Ward also scored in regulation, while Braden Holtby came up with 35 saves in Washingtons first victory since March 22. "I dont think theres any relief. We have a hefty job to do still," Holtby said. "So I think thats one step that we needed to do, and we have to keep building, have to keep finding a way to win games like we did tonight." Forward Dustin Penner did not play due to an upper-body injury, while defenseman Mike Green sat out the final 45 minutes of the contest with an upper-body issue. Green did not travel with the team for this game. The Blues have already assured themselves a spot in the postseason and find themselves in a pair of races down the stretch. St. Louis is closing in on a Central Division title and also is in the running for the Presidents Trophy. The Blues are two points back of the Boston Bruins for the most in the NHL with four games left for each team, and the Bruins visit the Minnesota Wild tonight. St. Louis also is four points up on the Colorado Avalanche for first place in the division. The Blues will be looking to rebound after dropping back-to-back games over the weekend. They were bested 4-0 by the Avalanche on Saturday and then lost 4-2 at the Chicago Blackhawks the following day. Brian Elliott made 31 saves for St. Louis, while Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Sobotka scored. "Were a little bit tired," said Blues coach Ken Hitchcock. "We still have four more games to play. We have a lot of hockey to play yet and have to find a way to re-energize ourselves and get back to work." Forward Alexander Steen, who leads the Blues with 33 goals and 60 points, has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury and is questionable for tonight. The Capitals have won three of their last four versus the Blues, including a 4-1 victory at home on Nov. 17. Alex Ovechkin scored twice and Holtby notched 46 saves. Jaroslav Halak got the start for the Blues and allowed three goals on six shots before getting pulled less than 16 minutes into the game, with Elliott stopping 13 shots in relief. Halak is now currently a member of the Capitals, having been dealt to Buffalo prior to the trade deadline in the deal that landed Ryan Miller with the Blues. Halak was then later flipped by the Sabres to the Capitals and could start tonight. Halak is 4-4-3 with a 2.53 goals against average in 11 games with the Capitals, but 0-3-2 in his last five. He has faced the Blues only once before, making 25 saves in a shootout loss while with Montreal on March 18, 2008. Holtbys victory in November came in his first ever meeting with the Blues. Miller is expected to get the start for the Blues and he is 15-11-0 with a 2.45 GAA and three shutouts in his career versus the Capitals. Washington is visiting St. Louis for the first time since a 4-1 victory on Dec. 1, 2010. That snapped an eight-game series road losing streak and gave the Capitals their first victory in St. Louis since Oct. 26, 1996.

Miami led 47-46 with less than seven minutes to go but made only one field goal the rest of the way. Syracuse (19-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) need one more victory to tie the school record for most wins to start a season, set two years ago. The ACC newcomers beat defending league champion Miami (10-9, 2-5) for the second time in three weeks. Both teams played zone defence and made points tough to come by for long stretches. The game was nearly 30 minutes old before either side made a fast-break basket. Jerami Grant scored 16 points to lead the Orange, who had a 39-24 rebounding advantage. Davon Reed scored 16 points for the Hurricanes, who kept it close by shooting 9 of 17 from three-point range. The game drew a sellout crowd, the seventh in coach Jim Larranagas three seasons at Miami. The stands were a sea of orange, including plenty of visiting or transplanted New Yorkers rooting for Syracuse. Both sides were roaring when the Hurricanes made a comeback after trailing by 18 points in the first half. The Orange had to rrally in the final minutes to beat Miami three weeks ago, and the Hurricanes again had an upset on their minds.dddddddddddd Reed hit a 3-pointer that cut Syracuses lead to 46-44, then converted a three-point play on the next possession to put them ahead for the first time since the opening minute. Syracuse dug in. Miami missed its next six shots and trailed 58-50 before making another basket, and by then the game was in the final minute. Tyler Ennis driving layup put Syracuse ahead to stay, 51-49, with 4:45 left. The Orange shot only 17 for 27 from the free throw line but made them all in the last minute. Miamis James Kelly was helped to the locker room with 3 1/2 minutes to go after he hurt his left leg, an injury which seemed to deflate the Hurricanes. They fell to 4-6 at home this season. Ennis had 14 points, five rebounds and four assists. C.J. Fair added 13 points and seven rebounds, and Trevor Cooney made three three-pointers and scored 11 points for Syracuse. The Orange, who shot 3 for 15 from three-point range in their earlier game against Miami, this time made their first three shots from behind the arc. Syracuse went on a 16-1 run to build its big early lead, but Miami rallied with a 16-2 spurt and trailed only 31-26 at halftime. ' ' '
