Friday Caps Clips: A Somewhat Dirty Dozen; Thrashers @ Caps Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's win from the us, WaPo (blog, gamer), Vogs, DCEx, Joe B., Ed Frankovic, Peerless, Puck Daddy, RMNB, and FFODC from the winning side, and the NYT, NY Daily News, Scotty Hockey and Blueshirt Banter from the other side.
  • A look at the gorgeous goal that was Alex Ovechkin's 500th career point. [D.C. Sports Bog, Puck Daddy]
  • This is no joke (and not original, either): a laser pointer aimed at Jose Theodore's eyes before a late faceoff. Had Bruce Boudreau known about it, he'd have been right to pull his team off the ice. [The Hockey Chronicles]
  • Previews of tonight's game against the Kovalchuk-less Thrash from Vogs, Peerless and NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Bird Watchers Anonymous for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • To refresh your memory, this is the fourth meeting of the season between the two Southeast Division "rivals," with the Caps taking the first three by scores of 5-44-3 and 8-1.
  • #Snovechkin updates. [CI]
  • What might the Caps be looking for at the deadline? [ESPN, USA Today]
  • The Caps are on Sheldon Souray's "Yeah, I'll go there" list. Hopefully the interest isn't mutual. [TSN]
  • The Great One on the Caps. [ESPN]
  • Nicklas Backstrom has become quite the scorer, and the rest of the hockey world is starting to notice. [The Hockey News]
  • On Eric Fehr's radio show. [Homer McFanboy, D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Shaone Morrisonn is quite the entrepreneur (I guess $1.975 million per year doesn't go as far as it used to). [DCEx]
  • Wilbon and Kornheiser on the Caps' post season chances. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • David Steckel has been a part of three professional double-digit win streaks. "Coincidentally, Bruce Boudreau has been Steckel's head coach for all three streaks." Coincidentally? [National Post]
  • Speaking of Stecks, thanks to Aaron Leistner, produced for "Overtime w/ Holden Kushner" on 1067 The Fan (which gets deservedly slurped over at OFB this morning) for passing along the audio of the spot Stecks did on the show the other night. [.mp3 (audio)]
  • Another take on AO's chances of breaking the all-time goal mark. [BtN]
  • A look (literally) at the 1984 Caps. What a good lookin' bunch. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Help the Caps help Haiti. [Hockey Mom]
  • Dreaming about an organizational double-play come June. [RtR]
  • Behind NHL benches stand plenty of Caps connections. [FanPost]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1994, "Peter Bondra scored 4 goals on 4 straight shots within a span of 4:12 in the first period, setting an NHL record for fastest four goals by one player. Bondra added another goal in the second period as the Capitals won 6-3 over visiting Tampa Bay."
  • Finally, happy 29th birthday to Kris Beech. Uh, yeah.
