Seen and heard last night at Philips Arena in Atlanta:

AID THE VICTIMS The Caps and their wives have produced a calendar called "A Capital Tribute: The Washington Capital Wives' Club 2002" featuring some of the players and their wives at picturesque scenes around the area. The calendar will go on sale Tuesday when the Pittsburgh Penguins are in town, with all proceeds going to the Pentagon Relief Fund. The calendars will be available on the main concourse at MCI Center for $15.

SENT DOWN Rookie right wing Mike Farrell, who had appeared in six games with the Caps this season, was returned to the Portland (Maine) Pirates on Wednesday. With two rookies on the roster the other being right wing Stephen Peat and only room for one to play even semi-regularly, the team decided it would be beneficial for Farrell to get more ice time with the Pirates.

CHAMPS REUNITE Members of the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" team from Lake Placid that won Olympic gold for the United States will reunite to play a team of NHL old-timers during the NHL's All-Star Weekend on Feb. 1-2 in Los Angeles. It is believed to be the first time the full U.S. squad will assemble since its semifinal victory over the Soviets and championship win over Finland 21 years ago. It may be hard to separate the team because several members of coach Herb Brooks' team, including Dave Christian of the Caps, went on to NHL careers. The exhibition will be Feb. 1.
