Seen and heard last night at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y.:
LANG HONORED — Caps left wing Robert Lang was named the NHL’s offensive player of the month for November. Lang, who entered last night’s game third in the league with 31 points, had 22 points (11 goals and 11 assists) in 14 games last month. He had scored at least a point in 15 straight games, and only Hall of Fame right wing Mike Gartner, who put together a pair of 17-game runs, had a longer streak for the Caps. The honor is the first for Lang. Three Caps had been named as player of the month: Gartner (January 1987) and goalies Jim Carey (March 1995 and March 1996) and Olie Kolzig (January 2000).
QUITE A QUINTET/QUARTET — Entering the game, Robert Lang (32 points), Jaromir Jagr (27), Sergei Gonchar (24), Dainius Zubrus (17) and Peter Bondra (14) had produced 114 of Washington’s 180 points (63 percent). Lang (14), Bondra (10), Jagr (10) and Zubrus (nine) had 43 of Washington’s 64 goals (67 percent).
LOVE THE ISLAND — The Caps, who won just three of their first 36 games against New York and were eliminated from their first three playoff appearances by the Islanders, have grown to love playing at Nassau Coliseum. The Caps are 9-1-1 in their past 11 games in Uniondale. Washington was 24-1-3 overall against New York since the start of the 1997-1998 season.
