Saturday Caps Clips: Power Outage in Vancouver; Caps @ Oilers Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from Corey (blog), Tarik (blog, article), Vogs, Peerless, OFB and Joe B.
  • Preview of tonight's Caps/Oilers game from NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner The Copper & Blue for the very best coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • For the second consecutive Saturday night, the Caps will play the back-end of a back-to-back on the road against a rested team. Sweet.
  • Btw, I'll be on 1500 AM's pre-game show with Jonathan Warner this evening around 6:30 talking pucks with the host and blogging luminaries Eric McErlain and John Keeley. Check it out.
  • Alex Ovechkin coming to town is "a watershed event" in Edmonton. [Edmonton Sun]
  • And the only thing "wrong" with AO is that he's not Canadian. [The Province]
  • The Caps are more than just one player. Who knew? [NHL.com]
  • Decade retrospective stuff from ESPN, leading with its best players of the decade (in no particular order, but with the game's current best player first). [ESPN]
  • A look at the latest Hershey recall-done-good, Kyle Wilson. [Washington Times]
  • Congrats to Arturs Irbe, who's to be enshrined in the IIHF Hall of Fame. [Capitals]
  • Allan Muir on whether the Caps will re-sign Alexander Semin after this season: probably nyet. [SI]
  • A look at the "O" the Caps are getting from their "D." Get well soon, Potsy. [Peerless]
  • Only two goalies in the League have faced a lower percentage of their shots against while on the penalty kill than Jose Theodore. [Puck Prospectus]
  • Jim Kelley weighs in on the David Koci hit. Not sure what his point is. [SI]
  • Adriant Dater is slightly more coherent on the matter. [All Things Avs]
  • Another "no" vote/prediction for Mike Green's inclusion on Team Canada... [NHL.com]
  • ... despite Bruce Boudreau's lobbying and Green himself playing the "I know Ovi's tricks" card. [The Province]
  • As it stands now, the Caps have a 45% chance of winning a playoff series against Pittsburgh, according to nerds. [Puck Prospectus]
  • Finally, happy 39th birthday to Robert Lang.
