Thursday Caps Clips: The Streak Ends; Caps @ Senators Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from the us, WaPo (blog, gamer), Vogs, DCEx, OFB, Joe B., Ed Frankovic, Peerless, RMNB, FFODC, StC and Hockey Mom.
  • On the no-goal heard 'round the hockey world. [D.C. Sports Bog, SB Nation, FanHouse]
  • Previews of tonight's game against the Sens from Vogs and NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Silver Seven for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • To refresh your memory, this is the third meeting between the Caps and Sens on the season, with Ottawa taking the first game 4-3 and the Caps bouncing back with a 5-2 win.
  • A couple of nice game-by-game rundowns of The Streak. [NBC Sports, RMNB]
  • Had the Caps won last night, they'd have made it onto this list, joining themselves. Twice. Oy. [The Hockey News]
  • Steinz caves in and does the "so what do you Canadian boys think of all this snow?" post. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • On Alex Ovechkin, Mike Milbury and paternity. [Capitals Outsider]
  • "Bäckström perfekt för Ovetjkin." Heh. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Explaining a certain hand gesture during the Pens game. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Average shift lengths are getting shorter and shorter... in some places, at least. [BtN]
  • Buona Notte gets new plates. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Ted Leonsis has a new book out (in case you hadn't heard). Click the links for more, including a local book signing at D.C.'s best book store. [NHL.com, Politics and Prose]
  • Perhaps of more interest to you (and certainly more Caps-specific) was Leonsis on the Eliot in the Morning Show. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • AO's not feeling the Olympic pressure (but is talking trash to his teammates), and Brian Pothier picks Sweden over Russia (and the U.S. over both). [CP]
  • Cool Ovi pic from Turin. [WaPo]
  • We're the John Glenn of the Caps blogosphere, which means that one day, I'll be a U.S. Senator. Awesometown. [Peerless]
  • Finally, happy 33rd birthday to Dwayne Hay.
