Thursday Caps Clips: Caps @ Jets Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's party in The 'Peg from Vogs, NHL.com, Peerless, CRtC and RMNB, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Arctic Ice Hockey for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice:
  • After a couple of bad goals and a mid-game netminder change, the spotlight is shining brightly on the Caps' sub-par goaltending. [WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW, Puck Daddy, SB Nation DC]
  • Brooks Laich calls in to The Junkies on the morning after the 5-1 drubbing at the hands of the Flyers. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Isn't it a bit early into the new guy's tenure for the team to be effort-deficient? [WashTimes, CSNW]
  • Maybe the boys just aren't used to someone being so even-keeled. [DCEx, with more on Dale Hunter and whether or not he's the right man for the job at Capitals Outsider]
  • This is either going to end really, really well... or not so much. [Peerless]
  • A look at numbers, numbers and more numbers (but really, can we trust a post about numbers that claims that the team is one-third of the way through the season, when they're really 29/82 of the way through?!?!). [WaPo]
  • The Caps are searching for ever-elusive consistency (well, the good kind, that is). [KOL]
  • So is their captain. [Peerless]
  • Karl Alzner speaks! (Always a good thing.) [Capitals Outsider]
  • Three things that are killing the Caps... [DSP]
  • ... and two players that are (in differing degrees). [THN]
  • The Caps have struggled so far north of the border. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Frustration mounts in the fan base. [RMNB, Chirps]
  • Minor fleecing alert: the Caps may have gotten a steal when they swapped Francois Bouchard for Tomas Kundratek. [PA Puck (h/t sk8)]
  • Over in SoCal, Bruce Boudreau is adjusting to life as the head quacker. [NHL.com]
  • Finally, happy 27th birthday to Kyle Wilson.
