Friday Caps Clips: Not(tawa) to Be

Rob Carr

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Recaps of the loss to Ottawa, Ovechkin's 600th game and beauty goal.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings from last night's loss from us, Vogs, NHL.com,Monumental video (Oates, Caps players, MacLean, Sens players), WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW (gamer, blog, Joe B.), Peerless, Frankovic, RMNB (and again), Caps Outsider and DSP.
    • The game itself was meh, but Alex Ovechkin took advantage of his 600th NHL game (not to mention Chris Phillips and Craig Anderson) to demonstrate yet again he is Alexander the Great.. [PHT, RMNB]
    • ... and we are reminded to enjoy and savor every moment like that, as time is fleeting. And fickle. [WashTimes]
    • It is very likely that Coach's pre-game narrative has gone unfulfilled. [WaPo]
  • All the tickets to the NHL Eastern Conference promenade have been issued. All that remains is to pair up the partners... [NHL.com]
  • ... and in a just world, these are the matchups with the best awesomesauce potential. [Grantland]
  • Good thing the Caps are coming into the playoffs on a hot streak, yes? Because past performance is totally indicative of future results. [THN]
  • Oates for Adams, step in time. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Success in a season of surprises. [SI]
  • Don't get cocky, kid. [WashTimes]
  • A happy hockey dressing room has lots of silly nicknames. SteinBog reports... [DC Sports Bog]
  • ... and he also trawls the WaPo archives to find the #fancystats related to its coverage by sport. Hint: hockey is the big red bubble on the left bottom corner. [Ibid.]
  • Navel-gazing with Ted Leonsis. [DC Sports Bog (for the hattie!)]
  • Matt Hendricks wants you to know, You Can Play. [WashTimes]
  • The puck drops tonight in Providence, where the Hershey Bears will take on the Providence Bruins (and Chris Bourque!) for the first game of the best-of-five first round of the Calder Cup playoffs. Bonne chance, cheries. [Patriot-News (and again), SHoE]
  • Finally - heh. [Dynamo.ru]
