 SCOREBOARD
Tuesday, March 4
Chicago at Minnesota (8 p.m. EST). The Wild have won their last seven games by one goal.

STARS
Monday
-Alexander Ovechkin, Capitals, had a hat trick in the first period and two assists later as Washington routed Boston 10-2.
-Joe Thornton, Sharks, had two goals and two assists, leading San Jose to its sixth straight victory, 6-4 over Montreal.

STANDINGS
Anaheim and San Jose moved within four and five points of Pacific Division-leading Dallas with victories Monday night. The Ducks beat Ottawa 3-1, while the Sharks took care of Northeast Division-leading Montreal 6-4.

STREAKING
Corey Perry and Scott Niedermayer each had a goal and an assist, Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves and Anaheim won its sixth straight Monday night, 3-1 over Ottawa in a rematch of last season's Stanley Cup finals. The Senators have won just nine of their last 24.

SWINGS
Washington's Alexander Ovechkin, who hadn't scored in seven previous games, had a hat trick in the first period and added two assists later Monday night in a 10-2 rout of Boston. Ovechkin became the league's first 50-goal scorer this season and now has 52.

GOOD MOVE
Anaheim is 11-1 since right wing Teemu Selanne rejoined them after sitting out part of the season while deciding whether to retire. The Ducks defeated Ottawa 3-1 Monday night.

STATUS
Peter Forsberg had his first practice Monday with Colorado since re-signing last week. His playing status for Tuesday against Vancouver will be a game-time decision. The Avalanche lost right wing Marek Svatos for the season Saturday night with a torn ACL, while left wing Ryan Smyth suffered a concussion and a minor shoulder separation after Kings defenseman Jack Johnson checked him into the padded glass partition near the Colorado bench.

SPEAKING
``It's really tough to take. It was embarrassing. On the other hand, what's the difference? If you lost 3-2 or you lost like that, we're still in the playoffs as of now. You definitely should learn from it, but you can't get too far down.'' - Boston goalie Tim Thomas, who allowed seven goals in a 10-2 loss to Washington on Monday night.
