Friday Caps Clips: Ovech-chin

We'll always have Madam Tussaud's - Kris Connor

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The Captain plays a game of puck puck goose, more Mike Ribeiro crystal ballin', and a look at the most important road trip in the history of ever.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Monumental video (Rinkside Update, Oates, Ribeiro, Laich, Carlson)]
    • Not. The. Face. Alex Ovechkin blocked his own rebound in a practice drill and got 22 stitches to the chin for his troubles. The puck was called for roughing then sat for two minutes and felt shame. We await the Shanahammer. [WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW, DSP, RMNB, USA Today]
    • The Caps have a Black-and-Blue Aces squad as dented defensemen slowly make their way back to Kettler Ice. No real word on when they might be game-ready, however ... [WashTimes]
    • ... and while they are out, Jack Hillen is making the most of his Thompson Creek Window of Opportunity™. [WashTimes]
    • "Trade deadline? What trade deadline? Can't you see I'm busy cleaning my crease?" Michal Neuvirth is keeping it chill. [WashTimes]
    • Pictures! Featuring intense Brooks, flirty Dima, and a be-weagled Coach Kolzig. [DSP]
  • Today in Mike Ribeiro:
  • Never mind the trade deadline, there's some crucial hockey to be played. [Dump 'n' Chase]
  • Life's grand when your top goal-scorer scores goals. [WashTimes]
  • Catching up with ... Brian Sutherby. [Cleveland Plain Dealer]
  • Two fantasy left wings skate into the steel cage. Only one will skate out. Alex Ovechkin vs. Zach Parise, who ya got? [Dobber]
  • Welcome aboard, Casey Wellman. [WBOC, Patriot-News, Caps Outsider]
  • Points for the authentic early AO sweater, but they perhaps need to do a bit more research on the "2007" model. [USA Today]
  • If you love Caps' swag, this is the story for you. [Caps Outsider]
  • Good luck to the six Capitals' prospects who are playing in the NCAA tournament starting tonight. May the odds be ever in your favour. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 62nd birthday to Hartland Monahan and happy 56th to Eddie Godin.
