Thursday Caps Clips: Caps @ Leafs Game Day

John E. Sokolowski-US PRESSWIRE

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: the Caps head to Toronto to face the Leafs, the owner chats about all things Caps and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's visit to Toronto from Vogs, NHL.com, AP, Peerless and RtR and be sure to check out our fabulous SB Nation partner, Pension Plan Puppets, for more from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Leftover thoughts, musings and recaps from Tuesday night's loss to the Senators. [Wash Times, WaPo, CSNW (and again), Caps Across the Pond, Caps Daily, Caps Outsider]
  • One takeaway from the Senators game (and the other five that preceded it) - refs are calling it pretty tight this year, and it's on the Caps to adapt. [WashTimes]
  • It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Caps are taking a little time to adjust to the new system. No hurry, boys. [WaPo]
  • There is definitely, absolutely, positively no need to panic about the Caps' slow start. [WaPo, RMNB]
  • Caps' owner Ted Leonsis was feeling chatty yesterday and took to the airwaves to discuss all kinds of things:
    • Like that new ticketing system everyone loves so much... [Bog]
    • ...as well as the potential for Monumental Network to become the area's third sports network... [Bog]
    • ...but most importantly the performance so far of one Alex Ovechkin. Spoiler alert: Ted is not impressed. [Bog, Puck Daddy, SLAM!]
  • Speaking of the captain, just how many goals can we expect from Ovechkin this year? Well, he's got at least one, so... [CBS Sports]
  • "You start putting him with a couple of animals, he's gonna learn to bark like a dog himself." Really have to wonder what's up with Mike Milbury's canine obsession. [PHT, Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Checking in with the Hershey Bears, who are struggling as the halfway point of their season comes and goes. [RTR]
  • And finally, a #fancystats review of some Hockey Hall of Famers (and perhaps others who should be). Hola, Olie Kolzig! [Beyond the Box Score]
