Friday Caps Clips: Caps @ 'Canes Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's hoedown with the Hurricanes from Vogs, NHL.com, SB Nation DC, Peerless, RMNB, KOL, Caps Basketball, CRtC and RtR, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Canes Country for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Kettler Report, Boudreau, Ovechkin, Laich, Beagle)]
    • Mike Green skates, briefly, and Troy Brouwer doesn't. [CW (Whyno), CI (Carrera), DCEx (McNally)]
    • Both Green and Brouwer will travel with the team, though it's not certain that they will play. [CI (Carrera)]
    • Jay Beagle makes an appearance. He plans to skate today for the first time post-injury at KCI while the team is on the road. [CW (Whyno, and again), DCEx (McNally)]
    • D.J. King will play the waiting game. [CI (Carrera)]
    • The lines looked a little different at practice, with Alexander Semin on 1R and a Eakin-MJ90-MP85 second line. Will that hold in a game situation? We'll know later tonight. [DCEx (McNally)
  • Bruce Boudreau did his weekly hit with Chad and LaVar. Guess what he talked about. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Something about this season seems... familiar. [Peerless]
  • Of youth and age. [Dump 'N Chase]
  • Defense-by-committee appears to be the name of the game as the Caps' blueliners work without Mike Green ... [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • ... but it sure helps to have Dennis Wideman picking up the offense. [WaPo (Carrera)]
  • One more look back at Cody Eakin's big-league debut. [CI (El-Bashir)]
  • Five minutes with Brooks Laich, and his interesting insight regarding his role with the team. [Golden Goal Sports]
  • In which John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Jeff Schultz, and Troy Brouwer help raise awareness and money to end domestic violence by wearing bespoke suits. [Revamp.com, and hey Sarge]
  • "Beer me!" #fancystats for the frosty beverage set at the Verizon Center and arenas around the league. [Puck Daddy]
  • Happiness is Caps' Young Guns. [Mr. Irrelevant]
  • Finally, happy 33rd birthday to Rick Berry.
