via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Mathieu Perreault sure is a l'il sparkplug, ain't he? [CSN Washington]
  • Odd choice for a "Getting to Know" feature in a national pub. [The Hockey News]
  • CSN's Russ Thaler sticks up for buddy Dmitry Chesnokov on the "4-5 Weeksgate" front. [CSN Washington]
  • It's still anyone's guess as to how long Alex Ovechkin will be sidelined, but in case you were wondering, the fewest games played by a Hart Trophy winner (modern era, non-goalie, non-lockout year) in his MVP season? 60, Mario Lemiuex in 1992-93 (Le Magnifique had 69 goals and 91 assists in those 60 games).
  • How 'bout that Flash? [Examiner]
  • A look at the Caps' goaltending situation from a fantasy perspective (and by "fantasy," I don't mean "Jose Theodore fully recaptures his Hart/Vezina form"). [The Hockey News]
  • Keith Aucoin has scored five goals since being returned to Hershey and Michal Neuvirth seems to be finding his groove, having now won three-straight (saving 76 of 80 shots along the way), including Sunday night's win in Providence. [Bears]
  • The captain of Sweden's U-20 team, Marcus Johansson (yes, that one), isn't intimidated by playing on North American-sized rinks. Good. [The Charlatan]
  • Former Cap Pat Peake is now coaching 'em up and has brought in a former boxer to teach his players how to defend themselves. The kicker? His players are 14-years-old. [Detroit Free Press (h/t KK)]
