Thursday Caps Clips: Five Caps All Sent Packing

via Daylife.com

Your savory breakfast links:

  • In case you missed it, in the late games last night Finland beat the Czech Republic 2-0 and Slovakia downed Sweden 4-3, meaning that all five of the Caps Olympians were eliminated from the tourney in the span of a few hours.
  • Here's what Alex Ovechkin had to say after Russia's loss to Canada... [Japers' Rink]
  • ... and here's what Puck Daddy had to say about his game in particular: "Alex Ovechkin was pathetic." [Fourth-Place Medal (and if you're up for more piling on Ovi, check out From the Rink and, well, the rest of the Internet today)]
  • Sigh. Milbury. [Puck Daddy]
  • The rest of the Caps (you remember them, don't you?) were back to practice yesterday. [Ed Frankovic's Blog, WaPo, Dump 'n Chase, CSN Washington]
  • On the injury front, good news on Matt Bradley and Tom Poti, but the news is not-so-good for Jason Chimera who "had missed three games before the break with a groin-muscle ailment," "left [practice] early after telling Boudreau that he felt the muscle 'tightening up,'" and "has a history of these types of injuries and never looked 100-percent comfortable today." [CI]
  • The Caps' style of play is - get this - good for hockey. Who knew? [Columbus Dispatch]
  • Five key Caps storylines to keep an eye on down the stretch. [the CAPS lock]
  • For readers new and old, let me direct your attention to a simply astounding piece of work by Natty Bumppo - the Japers' Rink Glossary, v 2.0. It's everything you've ever wanted to know about The Rink but were afraid to ask... and then some. Bravo.
  • Finally, happy 20th birthday to Stefan Della Rovere, happy 24th to Mr. Nasty, happy 39th to Byron Dafoe and happy 59th to Andre Peloffy.
