Friday Caps Clips

Larry Murphy Card

Your savory breakfast links:

  • When superstars collide (with pictures). Epic. [Bog]
  • Larry Murphy endorses Mike Green for the Norris Trophy. [OFB]
  • Green is really good, FYI. [WaTi]
  • Bruce Boudreau keeps trying to find new ways to motivate his club. [WaPo]
  • Go vote for "The Superhuman Spin." [TSN.ca]
  • I wonder if it would light a fire under Alex Ovechkin to know that he was less clutch than Alexei Ponikarovsky in March. Seriously. [USAToday]
  • AO and his l'il buddy rank first and sixth, respectively, among the League's best Russians. [THN]
  • All the "Caps" on Twitter in one place. What an odd phenomenon that was really only properly executed by one man. [CK]
  • Braden Holtby went from losing a playoff Game 7 in the WHL to getting called up to the AHL in about a 12-hour span. [Star Phoenix]
  • Hershey's also getting a big - and we mean big - boost next week. [DandC]
  • Speaking of Hershey, in case you missed it, Alex Giroux and Keith Aucoin have been named to the AHL's First All-Star Team. Congrats to both, and it's amazing what translates - and what doesn't - to the next level, isn't it? [Caps.com]
  • Our condolences to Chris Bourque on the passing of his grandfather. [Boston Globe]
  • Dale Hunter's London Knights are "the marquee franchise in the Canadian Hockey League." High praise from someone who knows a bit about winning - Detroit Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland. Good to have John Carlson (and Justin Taylor) learning there, isn't it? [LFP]
  • On this date back in the year 2000, Olie Kolzig passed Don Beaupre to become the franchise's all-time leader in games played by a goalie with 270 (a record that now stands at 711 - only 707 to go, Simeon!).
