Wednesday Caps Clips

USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: More report cards from a season cut short, one-on-one with Mike Ribeiro (and his hat), and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The annual rite of passage continues with more season reviews and report cards:
  • A couple of Mikes sit down for a chat, as Monsieurs Vogel and Ribeiro discuss the latter's first season in DC. Worth watching for yet another classic Ribeiro sartorial choice alone. [Monumental]
  • Can the Caps learn from a couple of upcoming Game Sevens out West? At this point pigeons may learn faster, but...dare to dream. [CSNW]
  • The Reading Royals won the Kelly Cup over the weekend, then proceeded to go batpoop crazy. As well they should. [Caps Outsider]
  • A couple of former Caps will face off in the Eastern Conference Finals for a shot at a shot at the Cup. And don't bother asking - no, they can't both lose. I checked. [WashTimes, AP]
  • Banners at Verizon Center have become something of a running joke - but did you ever wonder what happened to the ones that used to be there? [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 64th birthday to Willie Brossart and happy 38th to Jason Allison.
