Tuesday Caps Clips: Senators @ Caps Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's game against the Sens from Vogs, Peerless 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 fourth and final meeting of the season between these two teams, with the Caps trying to even the season series at two wins apiece after dropping a pair of one-goal decisions (4-3 and 6-5) and winning the middle game by a 5-2 count.
  • Notes from yesterday's practice, including a timeline on a few injured players, line juggling, and more. [CI, WaPo, DCEx, DCEx, Flickr (pics), Caps In Pictures (pics)]
  • Brooks Laich roundup. [Corey Masisak (the must-read), CI, WaPo, Examiner]
  • Yesterday's "Awwww..." moment, courtesy Eric Belanger's brood. [WJLA]
  • Fresh power rankings are out, with the Caps holding on to the top spot at ESPNSporting News and CBC, up one to first at The Hockey News and down one to second at CBSSports.
  • Is Mike Green a legitimate Norris Trophy candidate? Of course he is. (The Great Duncan Keith, by the way, is minus-7 in March... and blaming his footwear.) [Puck Daddy, Sportsnet]
  • Down the stretch they come for the Ross and Richard. [Peerless, RMNB, Canwest]
  • Alex Ovechkin is having another great season (not exactly breaking news, but still always good to read about). [Corey Masisak]
  • Scouting the likely eighth seeds in the Eastern Conference. [FFODC, DC Landing Strip, RtR]
  • Bruce Boudreau's Caps have accomplished two of the four goals they set for themselves back in the pre-season. A third may be just a week or so away. The fourth? We'll have to wait a couple of months to see how that one turns out... we hope. [Capitals]
  • Ovi talking workout routines, with a sidebar of eye candy. [Men's Fitness]
  • AO on a Caps/Pens Winter Classic... [CI]
  • ... which we're warned not to ruin (um, ok). [Puck The Media]
  • Talking Hart (and Vezina, but who cares about that one?). [THN]
  • A helpful reminder that the Caps have been excellent against really good (and really poor) competition. [FanPost]
  • A flowchart on booing the home team. [FFODC]
  • Braden Holtby: quirky. [RMNB]
  • Your weekly Farm Report. [FanPost]
  • Unfortunately, Chris Clark's season is over. Get well soon, Clarkie. [TSN]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1975, "Ron Lalonde scored the first hat trick in Washington Capitals' history as the Capitals lost 8-5 to the Red Wings." I'm feelin' one tonight.
  • Finally, happy 39th birthday to Jamie Heward, happy 49th to the late Doug Wickenheiser, and happy 57th to Dennis Ververgaert.
