Your savory breakfast links:
- Previews of tonight's game against the Stars from Vogs, Peerless and NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Defending Big D for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
- This is the first and only meeting on the season between these two teams, who last met October 25, 2008 in Dallas.
- Joe Corvo is happy to be in Washington (though it sounds like he'd be fine in San Jose or Pittsburgh, too). [WaPo]
- Jose Theodore is the man... for the moment. [DCEx]
- The Hershey Bears are a little bit good. [Patriot-News, Peerless]
- Don't forget to check back for Capital Ups and Downs later this morning.
- Finally, happy 34th birthday to Chris Clark (wish you were here... sorta), happy 42 to Rob Zettler, happy 39th to Rob Pearson, happy 47th to Mike Lalor and happy 49th to Larry Murphy.
