Your savory breakfast links:

  • A look at the season that was for Marcus Johansson. [CI (Carrera)]
  • Nicklas Backstrom sat down with Vogs on his way out of town... [Capitals Overtime (video)]

  • Even if they don't have giant centers in Hershey, they'll still have the Giant Center in Hershey. [DC Pro Sports Report]
  • Memorial Cup update, via Em:
    • The winless Kootenay Ice are winless no more as they eaked out a 5-4 overtime victory over the Saint John Sea Dogs' JV squad. [Globe and Mail, Station Nation, National Post, RLD, Toronto Star, CBC]
    • Game highlights.  [Sportsnet.ca]
    • Birthday boy Cody Eakin had one assist on Kootenay's third goal - the first time Kootenay had led in the tournament.Eakin also was undefeated in the dot.  He won 100% of his faceoffs. He was on ice for four goals-for and three against. But then, he was on the ice a lot. [Buzzing the Net]
    • Kootenay might have had a disappointing tourney, but it not for Eakin's lack of trying. [THN]
    • Eakin, profiled. [THW]
    • The Finals-bound Sea Dogs opted to rest a number of their players for this game; Stanislav Galiev played the full tilt. He had an assist on the Dogs' second goal and was not on ice for any of the five goals-against. [Gamesheet]
    • The Ice move up to 1-2 for the tournament.  The victory sets up a tie-breaker game for Thursday - Kootenay will play the loser of tonight's match between Owen Sound Attack (1-1) vs. Brett Flemming and the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors (1-1).
    • Wait - Owen Sound at Mississauga.  Can you say grudge match?  Oh, my. [Mississauga.com, with bonus totally random pic of Galiev celebrating last night's goal]
    • Speaking of bonus totally random pics, here's Cody playing Wii volleyball. [Cranbrook Daily Townsman]
