  • Notes, quotes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's day off (short version: Tom Poti is out for a while, Karl Alzner is here, and this is a plenty-familiar scenario facing the Caps). [WaPo, NHL.com (Rosen), FanHouse (Perez, Adams), CP]
  • Game 6's goals broken down. [EOTP]
  • Big game for the franchise, eh? [Boswell]
  • Fair or not, tonight is likely going to go a long way towards defining Alex Ovechkin 's career-to-date. [Rosen, Burnside, Cox, CSN Washington]
  • Solve Jaroslav Halak, win the series. Simple enough. [O'Halloran]
  • More on Halak. [Hickey, Wharnsby, Mirtle]
  • Brooks Laich's post-season struggles have slipped under most folks' radars... but not everyone's. [RtR]
  • The anatomy of an upset. [Duhatschek]
  • Justin Bourne with some Game 7 advice. [Bourne]
  • A bit of Caps Game 7 history (not for the faint of heart). [Homer McFanboy]
  • Jacques Martin is 0-4 in his career in Game 7's. Bruce Boudreau is 1-2. Jack Adams is rolling in his grave. [@CraigCustance]
  • Steinz has a few worthwhile nuggets to digest. [Bog, Bog]
  • Gabby's system and mental lapses: a deadly combination. Very interesting read. [FanPost]
  • Some unsolicited advice for Bruce. [A Capital Offense]
  • Why it may make sense to start Jose Theodore. [CapsBlog]
  • When Gabby refers to the power play or the top line as being "too cute," someone should show him this. [RMNB]
  • On Caps WAGs. [WaPo]
  • Mike Green gets some well-deserved recognition for something most of the hockey world was unaware that he does. No, not playing defense, but his extensive charity work. Kudos. [Capitals]
  • A bit of Cody Eakin love. [HF]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back during the Cup run of 1998, "Olaf Kolzig stopped 38 shots for his first career playoff shutout and Adam Oates scored twice as Washington won 3-0 at Boston, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals."
  • Finally, one year ago tonight...
