Your savory breakfast links:

  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Boudreau, Knuble, Vokoun), RtR]
    • Mike Green somehow managed to hurt his ankle while taking a puck in the face Saturday night... [CW (Whyno), CI (Carrera), DCEx (McNally, and again here)]
    • ... and John Erskine hasn't yet been cleared for contact... [CW (Whyno)]
    • ... so the Caps will bring Sean Collins along with them when they head out west (which would be a good idea whether Green can play or not). [CW (Whyno), with more on the role of the seventh defenseman at Sick, Unbelieable]
    • Jay Beagle doesn't believe he has/had a concussion resulting from the Aaron Asham sideshow. [Caps365 (video), SB Nation DC]
    • More injury updates, including a bit of a scare with the captain. [CI (Carrera), CSNW (Hughes)]
  • "The team to beat" will try to keep the train a-rollin' on the road. [CSNW (Hughes), with more on the week ahead at DSP and SB Nation DC]
  • Noteworthy notes on where things stand. [CI (Carrera), Peerless]
  • Tomas Vokoun was a little bit good against the Wings... [CW (Whyno)]
  • ... and all of last week, for that matter. [CW (Whyno), DCEx (McNally), with more on Vokoun at NHL.com (Kimmelman)]
  • Troy Brouwer is starting to look a bit more comfortable, eh? [WashTimes (Whyno), Capitals Voice]
  • So is Mathieu Perreault. [CI (Carrera)]
  • Dennis Wideman did a phoner with the NHL Live! dudes. [NHL Live! (audio)]
  • What would make D.C. a better hockey town? [CI (Applebaum)]
  • Wax on. Wax off. Waxvechkin! [Puck Daddy, Capitals Overtime (video), CSNW (video), DSPRMNB, PHT]
