Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:

NICE GUY Phoenix Coyotes left wing Brad May is known for things other than highlight film scoring moments, as 103 career goals and 1,689 penalty minutes might suggest. He can add another page to his resume: being a nice guy.

In New York City recently, May was taken as close as the public is allowed to get to Ground Zero by one of New York's Finest. May did not forget what the police officer did for him. The wing went out and bought 10 tickets to Game 4 of the World Series, sought out the officer who had taken him on the tour and presented him with two of the tickets, priced at $110 apiece.

JEFF RECALLED Former Capital Jeff Toms has been called up by the New York Rangers after toiling for a month in their Hartford, Conn., American Hockey League farm team. At least one scout is not surprised. "He was their best player down there," Rangers pro scout Dave Brown said. "He had a great camp, then he showed what he can do down there. He earned it."

Speaking of the Rangers, coach Ron Low's job is already rumored to be on the line and the season is barely a month old. The top tabloid candidate to replace Low is the almost always available Mike Keenan, who took the Broadway Blues to the Stanley Cup in 1994. Low, of course, was the Caps' goalie during their expansion years; he is still getting over shell shock.

Another former Cap on the move was defenseman Alexei Tezikov, waived by Anaheim and claimed by Vancouver.
