Your savory breakfast links:

● Isn't it awesome watching Alex Ovechkin lay a guy out in open ice and then set up a nifty assist on the power play? Well, duh. But why is he dressed like a Vancouver Canuck? [WaPo, SB Nation DC, Puck Daddy, Backhand Shelf, NBC4, RMNB, Alex Ovetjkin, Hockey Shopped]

○ "I expected less of myself." If you say so, comrade. [R-Sport]

○ At least Team Russia's chief North American scout was impressed. [@KravchukIgor]

● ... and that's the good news. On to Lockoutville, population: misery

○ No thaw in the Cold War. [WashTimes]

○ The mote in Gary Bettman's eye. [Puck Daddy, ESPN]

○ If this is really about the money, we're [rhymes with booed]. [Forbes (and again), CBC.ca, CSNW, Puck Buddys]

○ Parsing Ovi ... [ESPN, CSNW, SI]

○ .. and standing shoulder pad to shoulder pad with him. Aw, Brooks. [CSNW]

○ "Nothing's changed." [CSNW]

● Happy 43rd birthday to Curtis Leschyshyn, and happy 30th birthday and a hearty "Welcome Home" to the one and only Brett Leonhardt.
