Saturday Caps Clips: Getaway Day Recap

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Japers' Rink Radio is in your ear at 10:00 this morning... but only if you do the right thing and check it out.
  • Yesterday was "you ain't gotta go home but you've gotta get up out of here" day out at Kettler, and here are some highlights (kudos to those out there who brought it yesterday):
  • A couple of radio hits: Ted Leonsis with LaVar and Chad and GMGM on EITM.
  • Leonsis talks Caps (and other stuff you don't care about). [CSN Washington]
  • We did a brief post-mortem over at FtR. [From the Rink]
  • Another really good breakdown of shots, saves and frustration. [EOTP]
  • So what's next? [Masisak, Peerless]
  • Was Semin not as bad as you think (alternately teased as "Lies, damned lies, and statistics")? [Hockey or Die, not once but twice]
  • T.V. champions! [Bog]
  • So that wasn't the biggest upset ever? Of course, those other teams were never up three-games-to-one. [Puck Update]
  • From the not-funny-but-out-there-so-I'm-passing-'em-along file, these. [DCEx, ESPN, Bloge Salming (ok, that one's pretty funny)]
  • This is bizarrely hilarious. [Xtra Normal (via @JTBourne)]
  • Won't somebody please think of the agents? [Forbes]
  • If the Caps were to do as Kevin Allen suggests, they might as well change their colors to maize and blue. Just say no to Marty Turco (hey, that sorta rhymes). [USAToday]
  • More "scalpel, not hacksaw" logic. [Hockey or Die, Duhatschek]
  • One of the questions I've been struggling with over the past few days is, "How am I supposed to care about next regular season?" Apparently I'm not the only one asking. [TSN]
  • AO is an mythical beast. Or something. [Copper & Blue]
  • A seat from the Capital Centre. Want. [eBay, via Mr. I]
  • Happy 40th birthday to Reggie Savage and happy 49th to Clint Malarchuk.
  • Finally, on behalf of all of us at The Rink, thanks to all of you who made this season so much fun and worthwhile in our little corner of the Intertubes (even if Mick Kern thinks 80% of you are jackasses, we know better... it's more like 50/50). April was yet another record-breaking month for us in terms of traffic, but, more importantly, it was great to have both a cheering section and a support group to join when events warranted. So thanks for that - you guys are the best.
