Your savory breakfast links:

  • With the Caps having the day off, Mike Green skated with the Bears up the road in Hershey yesterday.
    • On what it meant to Green (and his Hershey teammates-for-a-day). [Patriot-News (Leone: here, here)]
    • Green talks bigger picture about his past time in Hershey. [JohnWalton.net]
    • Interesting pull by Katie Carrera: "When he addressed reporters on Wednesday, Boudreau said Green had been 'symptom-free for three weeks, plus.' On Mar. 28, though, Green said he was still experiencing symptoms 'here and there.'" Hmm. [CI (Carrera)]
  • The Caps are on the verge of locking up the East. [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • A quick look at potential first-round foes. [CI (Carrera: Rangers, Sabres, Canadiens), CSN Washington (video)]
  • Mike Knuble picked a fine time to remember how to score goals. [CI (El-Bashir)]
  • It's nice to have 142,905,200 additional fans (give or take a few) supporting the Caps. [NHL.com (Rosen)]
  • Sean Collins is out to prove he belongs. [DCEX (McNally)]
  • Dear Alexander Semin: please show up for the playoffs this year. [Homer McFanboy]
  • Jeff Schultz love from a national outlet? Color me surprised. [CBC (Wharnsby)]
  • "I don't know if ... Bruce Boudreau could survive a first-round playoff failure." Careful stepping out there on that limb, E.J. [ESPN (Hradek; $)]
  • Karl Alzner did a radio hit with our friends LaVar and Dukes. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • A few kind words sent Brooks Laich's way... [OFB, Die By The Blade]
  • ... and a heads up: Laich is about to get hairy. [Marketing Magazine]
  • Eric Fehr is focused on the playoffs. [Brandon Sun]
  • It looks as if the Caps will face the Preds in a pre-season game up in Charm City come September. I insist that one of the Caps goalies that night borrows Matt Mitchell's pads for the night. [D.C Sports Bog]
  • Counting down the Top 10 games of this Caps regular season. [CSN Washington (Raby)]
  • Disturbing visual alert: imagine Nicklas Backstrom as a Penguin. [RtR]
  • Some unofficial NHL award winners. [USA Today (Allen)]
  • ESPN has its first 2011-12 fantasy rankings out, and some Caps are in interesting spots, particularly the goalies. [ESPN (Forwards, Defensemen, Goalies)]
  • Something for the stat geeks: Caps' balanced Corsi numbers. [FanPost]
  • Does anyone really buy Southeast Division Champs gear? [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Wherever he plays, Braden Holtby sure does stop a lot of pucks. [Bears]
  • Checking in with Dmitri Kugryshev. [Sports Haze]
  • Finally, if you're looking for something to do on Sunday, watching Caps alumni play for a good cause ain't a bad idea. [FanPost]
