Sunday Caps Clips: Round 1, Game 6 Game Day

Bruce Bennett

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Previews of Game 6, reflections on Game 5 and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of Game 6 at the Garden from Vogs, NHL.com, WaPo, CSNW, WashTimes, Peerless, SB Nation and RtR, and be sure to visit our pals at Blueshirt Banter for the other side of this evening's match-up.
  • Checking in with the Caps as they try to snap the series' string of home-team wins:
  • Ranger stuff:
    • Don't expect to see Ryane Clowe, Marc Staal and Darroll Powe on the ice tonight, as the Rangers go to a strict "polysyllabic last names-preferred" lineup. [NHL.com]
    • But do expect the Rangers to forecheck and try to have some fun (which, I'm sure is totally easy playing in an elimination game for John Tortorella). [Ranger Rants]
    • Things are getting Nashty in N.Y. as they start to round up scapegoats. [BSB, and with more on how the Caps have stifled #61 (no, not Steve Oleksy), head over to NBC4]
  • Some tasty Game 5 leftovers (they're fine cold, no need to reheat 'em). [us (and pics!), CSNW, NBC4, RMNB (and again), Peerless, Caps Basketball, Ranger Rants]
  • Oh, and here's me talking on the radio about the game. [ESPN 980 (audio)]
  • Twenty Caps prospects, presented in an orderly fashion. [HF]
  • Here's another way (or three) to get your daily dose of Caps linkage. [Caps Outsider]
  • Smokin' Al Koken is just the best. [WaPo]
  • Looking back at the Bears' season. [Caps Outsider]
  • The Reading Royals have won the ECHL's Eastern Conference. Good job, boys! [Caps Outsider]
  • Happy 54th birthday to Dave Christian.
  • Seriously, we raised more beardcash on Thursday and Friday than on any day yet and the Caps won Game 5. If you want to bump up their odds of winning Game 6 tonight, throw some cheddar at the fuzzy. [Beard-A-Thon, and a very sincere thanks to everyone who has given already]
  • Finally, happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there. You are the best!
