Friday Caps Clips: SOL (Shootout Loss, That Is)

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from us, the WaPo (blog, gamer), Vogs, Joe B., Ed Frankovic, Peerless, RMNB, RtR and FFODC.
  • Gabby's got his eyes on the prize. [CI]
  • Mike Knuble keeps 'em grounded... [CI]
  • ... with gems like "You don't have a career in the NHL until you break your face once, until you get a plate in it." [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Everyone wants more Caps/Pens. [USAToday]
  • Mike Green has it relatively easy. Interesting. [Puck Prospectus]
  • No one does more with less ice time than Eric Fehr. [Dump n' Chase]
  • Cap scratch fever, with Quintin Laing having a stranglehold on first. [DCEx]
  • Brian Campbell speaks. We yawn. [CSN Washington]
  • The Boss on protecting the brand. We're cool, right? [Ted's Take]
  • The Caps are rockin' some 'tude. [Examiner]
  • Cody Eakin has been summoned to Hershey. [Prairie Post]
  • For hockey card geeks, the NHL re-upping with Upper Deck is good news. [Upper Deck]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1996, "Jim Carey became the first goalie in Washington Capitals' history to record 30 wins in a season, with a 7-1 victory over the Islanders, in New York. Carey broke the team record of 29 held by Don Beaupre." Since you're wondering, Olie Kolzig topped 30 wins five times thereafter and Jose Theodore did it last year and sits at 27 this season.
  • In that same game, "Washington's Peter Bondra scored three straight goals in a 4:21 span late in the third period (his 6th career hat trick) and Sergei Gonchar had a goal and three assists in the Capitals' 7-1 win over the Islanders, at Long Island. "
  • Also per the HHoF, on this date in 1989, "Washington beat the Islanders 3-2, to clinch their first Patrick Division championship. Dino Ciccarelli scored his 9th goal in his third week with the team, as the Capitals extended their team-record home winning streak to 7 straight games."
  • Don't forget to check out the debut of Japers' Rink Radio tomorrow morning - tune in for the intro, stay for the awesome.
  • Finally, happy 44th birthday to Robin Bawa... and a very happy 33rd to my little brother Pooh.
