USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The Captain checks out, the blame gets apportioned and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • A clean-shaven and nattily attired Alex Ovechkin met the media a day ahead of his teammates doing so... [Monumental (video), WaPo, CSNW, NBC4]
  • ... as he had a plane to catch to go play more hockey. [Capitals, WaPo, WashTimes, RMNB]
  • Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend them your eyes; they come to bury the Caps, not to praise them. [WaPo, Puck Daddy, WashTimes, CSNW, NBC4, Homer McFanboy, Caps Outsider]
  • Finger-pointin' time. Blame it on the:
    • ... first line going AWOL. [WaPo, WashTimes]
    • ... handsome fella in the other cage. [WashTimes]
    • ... guy strokin' the checks (but only if you're the guy strokin' the checks). [Ted's Take]
    • ... lack of discipline, or if you prefer, the... [ESPN]
    • ... refs. [CSNW, NYDN, PHT, RMNB]
    • ... a hamburger joint. [WaPo]
    • ... rain. [YouTube]
  • Another Hart-worthy, Richard-winning regular season followed up by postseason disappointment and an embarrassing finale for The Captain. Party like it's 2009! [WashTimes]
  • Behind every great man is a great woman. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • So why do we do this to ourselves anyway? [DSP]
  • In case you hadn't noticed, there's a whole lot of fail in town. [Mr. I]
  • Finally, thanks to everyone who made mine a $700-plus beard and an even bigger thanks to everyone who has read and/or participated on the site over the past year - you guys make it all worthwhile.
