Monday Caps Clips: Waiting Game

Your savory breakfast links:

  • With a three-game, three-win week behind them, the Capitals had Sunday off as they prepare for the next challenge - a two game Western Conference roadie, leaving plenty of time for the pundits to work on their 'nalysis:
    • Early success is great, but the team (and owner) knows there's still work to be done. [NHL.com (Compton), WashTimes (Whyno), PHT]
    • But hey, that win against the Wings was pretty sweet. [WashTimes (Whyno, and again), Kukla's Korner, DCEx (McNally)]
    • The week that was. [Peerless]
    • The Goals Project, Week Two. [Peerless]
    • Goodbye country club, hello lunch pail. [OFB]
    • Three weeks in, grading GM George McPhee's offseason. [RtR]
    • Seven games, eight thoughts. [Inside Hockey (Eisenberg)]
    • When you're hot, you're hot.  And the Boudreau-era Caps get hot. A lot. [Dump 'n Chase]
    • A six-pack of Week 2 goodness. [KOL]
  • Hooray for:
    • A splendid goalie ... [USA Today (Gleeson), StC, CI (Carrera)]
    • ... a resurgent power play ... [CSNW (Gormley), DCEx (McNally)]
    • ... and rolling four lines. [CSNW (Gormley), CI (Carrera)]
  • The Hershey Bears scored seven goals in their seventh game as well.  Mattias Sjogren scored his first pro North American goal. [SHoE, Patriot-News (Leone), YouTube highlights, RinkRebel (pics)]
  • A rookie card like no other. [Ross Hollebon's Sports Pub]
  • Finally, Caps' prospect defenseman Patrick Wey suffered a lacerated tendon in his foot and will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks. Get well soon, PDub. [CW (Whyno)]
