    RENTON, Wash. [b]Daniel Carlson Jersey[/b] . -- John Schneider understands the entertainment and excitement when it comes to the first round of the NFL draft. Its what transpires in those later rounds on the final two days that has separated the Seattle Seahawks from the pack since Schneider and coach Pete Carroll took over in 2010. "I think the first round is a beautiful thing because its so exciting and everybody is really into it. Its entertainment. I get it," Schneider said. "But its all about the work that all the scouts put in throughout the fall, all the way through the draft and into rookie free agency." Schneider and the Seahawks hold the No. 32 pick in the first round, but its the paltry amount of selections that follow for Seattle that stands out with the draft approaching. The Seahawks hold only six picks heading into Thursday night, and it would be the fewest selections by Seattle since 2006 if that number holds. Schneider and Carroll have made no fewer than nine picks in any of their previous drafts in charge and ended up making 11 selections last year. The measly number of picks -- at least in terms of Seattles recent history -- has raised speculation Schneider could be looking to move out of the last spot in the first round so he could acquire more selections on Days 2 and 3. Schneider said even if the Seahawks hold their six picks, it hasnt changed their approach to the draft. "Its just a matter of how it starts coming off," Schneider said. "This year is going to be really unique because of the quarterbacks and how they come off. There are some really talented quarterbacks that should go really high in the draft." Here are five things to watch as the Seahawks draft as NFL champions for the first time: FIFTH-ROUND FINDS: While Seattle has pulled some gems from the middle rounds, something about the fifth round has proved extremely fruitful for the Seahawks. In 2010, Seattle landed strong safety Kam Chancellor. A year later, it was All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman falling to Seattle in Round 5. And last year, Seattle found value in tight end Luke Willson in the fifth round; he went on to catch 20 passes. No surprise, Seattle has a pair of fifth-round picks. "I think coach Carroll and his staff have that natural, they played with young players at USC. Theyre used to it. They dont have a preconceived notion that you need a veteran," Schneider said. "The easiest thing to do is sign a veteran. The toughest thing to do is sign a young player and coach them up and spend extra time with them and develop them and get them ready to play. And this staff has shown an ability to do that year in and year out." LINE GAPS: Seattle will need to fill at least two offensive line spots after right tackle Breno Giacomini and left guard Paul McQuistan left in free agency. Michael Bowie, a seventh-round pick last year, will likely get the first shot at right tackle, but filling the guard spot could come from the draft. The likes of guard Xavier Sua-Filo from UCLA or tackle Morgan Moses from Virginia could possibly be options for Seattle late in the first round. BIG TARGET: Everyone loves big wide receivers, especially Carroll. They were a staple of his offences at USC and Seattle has tried to emulate that first with Mike Williams and then Sidney Rice since Carroll arrived. Rice, who has been injury-plagued since signing with Seattle, is returning, but the Seahawks could use another receiving option with Golden Tate going to Detroit in the off-season. RUN STUFFER: Seattle let go of Red Bryant and Chris Clemons and saw Clinton McDonald sign elsewhere, leaving depth questions on the defensive line. The Seahawks believe Greg Scruggs and Jesse Williams, both injured last season, will be able to help fill the voids. But look for Seattle to try and add depth up front after seeing the benefits of having a rotation last season. THE SURPRISE WILL BE ... Aside from their success in the later rounds, the Seahawks have pulled a few surprises in the draft, especially with their early picks. Whether it was taking Bruce Irvin in the middle of the first round or the decision to draft Russell Wilson after signing Matt Flynn as a free agent, Schneiders group is good for at least one eyebrow-raising selection.

[b]Andrew Sendejo Jersey[/b] .TV Series: Duck Dynasty.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Washington Capitals will try to post consecutive wins for the first time this season when they host the sliding New York Rangers in Wednesdays battle at Verizon Center. You can watch the game on TSN2 at 8pm et/5pm pt. and get in-depth player stats, Twitter Trender and more with our GameTracker. The Capitals halted a three-game losing streak on Monday by downing the visiting Edmonton Oilers by a 4-2 count. It was Washingtons first win since beating Calgary in a shootout on Oct. 3. Alex Ovechkin tallied a goal and an assist to lead the Capitals to Mondays home win over the Oilers. Ovechkin, who led the NHL with 32 goals in last seasons lockout-shortened campaign, already has six goals and nine points through six games in 2013-14. Nicklas Backstrom assisted on three goals, while Braden Holtby turned away 28- of-30 shots to help Washington improve its home record this season to 2-2-0. "Both teams were very desperate," said Caps forward Brooks Laich. "Theyre a team thats struggling as well. And for us, losing three in a row in regulation is not acceptable at any time." Holtby also earned his first win of the season and is 1-3-0 with a 3.56 goals against average in five games. He is expected to get a second straight start in net on Wednesday. Washington has two games left on its current five-game homestand and will close the residency Saturday against Columbus. The Rangers, meanwhile, are still scuffling through their season-opening nine- game road trip. The club is just 1-4-0 on the swing so far and is still nearly two weeks away from its home debut at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 28 against Montreal. New York has lost its last three games in regulation and has been outscored by a combined 20-5 margin in those contests. The good news is the teams most recentt loss -- Saturdays 5-3 setback in St. [b]Ben Gedeon Jersey[/b]. Louis -- was the clubs best effort since posting its lone win of the season on Oct. 7 in Los Angeles. The bad news is the club still surrendered five goals or more for the third straight game. The Rangers did receive a pair of power-play tallies from Ryan Callahan in defeat, while Brad Richards notched a goal and an assist. "In the third, we just ran out of gas," Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault admitted. "Four games in six nights. You could tell the effort was there, the willingness was there, but the legs were having a tough time." Martin Biron stopped only 13-of-17 shots before being removed in favor of Henrik Lundqvist to begin the third period. Biron and forward Arron Asham have since been placed on waivers by the club and replaced on the roster by goaltender Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller, who were both recalled from Hartford of the AHL on Tuesday. Rumors have been flying that Biron is going to announce his retirement soon, but the veteran goalie stopped short of saying hes going to call it quits. "I think there are many options ahead of me," Biron said Monday after being waived. "Its not the best-case scenario obviously, but I am going to figure it all out. Lundqvist will get the start on Tuesday as the five-time Vezina Trophy finalist and one-time winner tries to shake off his awful start to the season. The Swedish netminder is 1-3-0 with a 4.21 goals against average in 2013-14, but he is 7-3-3 with a 2.67 GAA in 24 career regular-season games against the Caps. Washington and the Rangers have split the last six meetings in the regular season. The clubs met for the fourth time in five postseasons in the 2013 playoffs and the Rangers downed the Caps in seven games of a first-round series.
