Thursday Caps Clips: Capital Comeback

Your savory breakfast links:

  • After an exciting OT comeback win (and with a rare spare day between games), the whole team got a maintenance day. [CSNW]
  • Win-and-you're-in, Michal Neuvirth edition. [PHT, CSNW]
  • That sound you just heard was Troy Brouwer exhaling after snapping a long scoreless streak. [WaPo, WashTimes]
  • Jay Beagle is workin' it. [WaPo]
  • So is Keith Aucoin, for that matter. [DCEx]
  • Sizing up the UFA class of 2012. Oh hai there, Alexander Semin. [NHL.com]
  • Ruffles and flourishes - Tomas Vokoun's new bucket is positively Presidential ... [DaveArt]
  • ... and Jeff Halpern goes Tribal with this lid. [@MaybeSew]
  • Joel Ward, represent. [CSNW]
  • In which Justin Bourne takes a look at the Caps' play without the puck. [Backhand Shelf]
  • Third-quarter report card on head coach Dale Hunter: Needs Improvement. [SB Nation, Hockey's Future]
  • The Caps stood pat on trade deadline day. And we're pretty much okay with that. Aren't we? [WTOP, WaPo, DSP (and again)]
  • Though a couple of guys up in the press box might like a word. [Dump 'n' Chase]
  • The Caps aren't the only team with a nervous eye on the standings. The Hershey Bears have gone slumpy-slumpy lately, and the East Division may be slipping away. [Patriot-News]
  • Is there life after Evgeny Kuznetsov? With Traktor's first playoff game today and Kuzya on the sidelines, this postseason primer ponders that very question. With bonus knowledge - Chelyabinsk, with its military mechanical factories, is also known as "Tankograd". [KHL.ru (Eastern Conference, Western Conference)]
  • Smoke 'em if you've got 'em. Al Iafrate certainly did. [SI]
  • Congrats are in order for proud new papa Keith Aucoin, whose wife Maureen gave birth to their first child yesterday in Hershey. Let's have a baby-blue Rink stick salute for Brayden Michael Aucoin. [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 30th birthday to Brian Sutherby.
