Your savory breakfast links:

  • The fallout continues. [WashTimes (Daly), Peerless, OFB, Boston Globe (Dupont), Edmonton Journal (Matheson), NY Post (Brooks), StC, Capitals Outsider]
  • Future of the Franchise: Michal Neuvirth. [CSN Washington (Raby)]
  • How much was a banged-up blueline to blame for the Caps' quick Round 2 exit? [CW (Whyno)]
  • Not Breaking News: The Caps' record when they've had a chance to advance over the last decade or so hasn't been so hot. [Puck Daddy]
  • On Alex Ovechkin's injury. Or, rather, injuries. [CW (Whyno)]
  • Speaking of AO, he and his countrymen lost to Jaromir Jagr and his at Worlds. [Alex Ovetjkin, RMNB]
  • Prospect playoff update (courtesy Em):
    • The Owen Sound Attack tied the OHL championship series at two games apiece as the Majors and Attack took a 1-1 tie into overtime and Owen Sound potted the winning goal at the 16 minute mark.  Brett Flemming finished 0-0-0, with one Poticlear™ in the OT period.  He was on-ice for every goal in the game. The series returns to Mississauga for Game Five  on Tuesday.
  • A couple of programming notes: Rink Wraps kick off later this morning with Alzner, Karl and The Noon Number is officially on summer vacation.
  • Finally, happy 61st birthday to Steve Self and happy 45th to Mark Tinordi.
