Power-play goal gives Caps OT win

WASHINGTON — Brooks Laich's power-play goal 44 seconds into overtime gave the Capitals a 3-2 win over the Bruins on Monday night.

Laich's goal came 20 seconds after Boston's Dennis Wideman was called for high-sticking, and the Capitals had the four-on-three advantage.

anger at pardon: Theoren Fleury and Sheldon Kennedy, two former NHL players who say they were sexually abused as teenagers by a junior coach, are among those angered at the revelation the convicted sex offender was pardoned by Canada's National Parole Board in 2007. Graham James pleaded guilty to sexual assault and served 31/2 years. The Parole Board said it cannot refuse a pardon based on the nature of a crime.
