Monday Caps Clips: Down the Stretch They Come

Your savory breakfast links:

  • In case you missed it, Braden Holtby was sent back to Hershey yesterday. [CW, PHT, OFB]
  • More musings on the goaltending situation. [Hockey Independent (Scriven)]
  • Oh, and Michal Neuvirth is made of velcro. [Puck Daddy (and look for a more in-depth post on the Caps' goalies and rebounds from Neil Greenberg on Capitals Insider later this morning)]
  • Nice to see Marco Sturm finally pot a goal, eh? [CI (Carrera)]
  • Karl Alzner: livin' the dream. [Homer McFanboy]
  • A look back at the road trip that was. [Peerless]
  • Maybe the second seed wouldn't be so bad after all. [Blonde Girl's Guide]
  • Some cool stuff coming your way from Chris Nelson and Gemma Hooley, the duo that brought us two seasons of Hockey Diaries (with a third on the way). [mediachameleon, mediachameleon, mediachameleon]
  • A look at potential playoff match-ups. [CRtC]
  • Part one of five (!) of an interview with Eric Fehr. [DCLS]
  • Alex Ovechkin graces the cover of this month's Washingtonian. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • And here's about as random an Ovi story as you'll read (today, at least). [French for a While, which has nothing to do with Hershey's bench boss]
  • Killer plates. [Twitpic]
  • It's always good to read about former Cap Mike Marson, whether you're familiar with his story or not. [The Hockey News]
  • Speaking of blasts from the past, Part Two of an epic (no, really) Mike Fornes interview. [Caps Degenerate (with pics)]
  • In case you missed it and have an hour-and-change to kill, check out 106.7 The Fan's Danny Rouhier hosting a "Caps Summit" with Sky Kerstein and myself from Saturday evening (and thanks again for having me on, fellas). [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • We threw this out last year, but it's worth repeating: Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1975, "Washington recorded the only road victory in their first season, when Nelson Pyatt's 2 third period goals gave them a 5-3 win at Oakland. The win ended their NHL-record 37 game road losing streak. They finished the year 1-39-0 on the road." Unreal.
  • Finally, happy 39th birthday to Jan Benda and happy 53rd to Sweet Lou Franceschetti.
