Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
ABOUT TIME Scott Stevens went into Friday night's game against Montreal with no goals in a campaign for the first time in his 20 NHL seasons. He finally converted in the second period to erase that possible blot from his record.
The defenseman never had that problem when he was a Cap. He scored 98 goals and 429 points in his 601 games with Washington and still holds the team single-season record for power-play goals by a defenseman with 16 in 1984-85.
A guy who doesn't appear too concerned with scoring or the lack of it is Devils defenseman Ken Daneyko. He has 34 goals in his career but none in his last 252 games, thought to be an NHL record for futility.
LOW POINT? The New York Rangers finished out of the playoffs again and a coaching change is expected. That means Ron Low, the Caps' first goalie, will be searching for a job soon. It is never too quick to deposit someone's name in the hopper for the job, and the Newark Star-Ledger has put up Larry Robinson, until recently coach of the Devils and then brought back as an assistant. Robinson said coaching the Rangers was the "farthest thing from my mind" but didn't rule it out if the money was right. Money doesn't seem to be a problem for the Rangers.
