Monday Caps Clips: Another Week Begins

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Breaking down Saturday night's game-winner. [On The Forecheck]
  • Catching up with Brooks Laich. [Red Light District]
  • Due to the fact that he's one of the only Caps pivots that can win faceoffs in the early going, Nicklas Backstrom is starting a lot of his shifts in the defensive zone. Here's part of what that means. [Insider2]
  • The Caps have been rather "meh" in Fenwick so far. [RLS]
  • The week in scoring chances... [RMNB]
  • ... and a look at the week ahead. [CK]
  • CrowdWave - yay or nay? [Puck Daddy]
  • A couple of cold Caps prospects over in Mother Russia. [Russian Prospects]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1983, the Caps traded Ken Houston and Brian Engblom to Los Angeles for Larry Murphy. Five years to the day earlier, the Caps traded a previously acquired number one pick (used to select Tom McCarthy) to Minnesota for Dennis Maruk. Good trade vibes today, eh?
  • A few notes and pics from Hershey. [LDN, LDN, Caps In Pictures]
  • On an administrative note, if you like this site, how about "liking" the site on Facebook? Go here and click "like." Gracias.
  • Oh, and don't forget about our viewing party Thursday night.
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Alex Henry.
