Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's throwdown with the Thrash from Vogs, NHL.com (Hunter), SB Nation DC, and WC2010, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Bird Watchers Anonymous for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice. [Caps365 video (Boudreau), CI]
  • If the Caps don't win the Southeast Division, perhaps they can point to their play within the Southeast Division (and, of course, the Division's improvement) as to why. [WaPo (Wang)]
  • The Alex Ovechkin of old: coming soon to an ice rink near you... we hope... and pray. [CSN Washington (Zuckerman), CI]
  • Braden Holtby is one smooth puck-handlin' netminder, and that helps his D. [Caps365 (video)]
  • Yesterday's radio hits:
  • A look at some options to fill the second-line center slot. [CSN Washington (Popels)]
  • Sticking with the second line, Mike Knuble and Laich haven't helped that line generate much offense at all. [Homer McFanboy]
  • Are the Caps likely to be more playoff-ready this time around? [Examiner (Hoffman)]
  • I think it's safe to say that Vegas has more faith in the Caps than a lot of fans right now. [Puck Daddy]
  • Don't panic. [KOL]
  • The Caps will honor Dino Ciccarelli next week, which is truly awesome (to say nothing of the fact that they'll be donning their Winter Classic threads). [Capitals]
  • Semyon Varlamov on injuries, starting next season abroad, and more. [KOL]
  • If AO was guilty of a couple of, um, embellishments the other night, it's probably only in preparation for heading down to Eric Staal's home rink this weekend - "when in Rome" and all that. [FanHouse (Ciskie)]
  • Speaking of which, Green and Ovi could be on different teams in Raleigh. [NHL.com (Kimelman)]
  • Joé Juneau had some fantastically awful hockey cards. [HotH]
  • For those of you interested in Quintin Laing fluff, this one's for you. [BC Local News]
  • Got a favorite pre- or post-game destination? Vote for it. (Oh, and Matchbox, ftw.) [Capitals Outsider]

  • Finally, here's a nice read on the growth of youth hockey in Northern Virginia, a.k.a. "The Ovechkin Factor." [Fairfax Times]
