Wednesday Caps Clips: Round 1, Game 4 Game Day

Bruce Bennett

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Looking ahead to Game 4 at the Garden, arguing over Alex Ovechkin's relative sleepiness and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of Game 4 at the Garden from Vogs, NHL.com, AP, Rangers, Peerless and the PuckBuddys, and be sure to visit the evil ones our good friends over at Blueshirt Banter for the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Home ice has served the teams well so far in this series. Let's change that, shall we, Caps? [NHL.com]
  • Checking in with the Caps ahead of another visit to MSG:
  • The babble from the Blueshirts:
  • A few leftovers from Monday's game, including that penalty for too many me-...wait, sorry, "too many men". [WaPo, WashTimes, NBCW]
  • The Rangers may be experiencing a bit of deja vu, as the Caps have given them a Devil of a fight so far. [Fire & Ice]
  • Speaking of deja vu, hey look, Karl Alzner and John Carlson are no longer skating together. [NHL.com]
  • Henrik Lundqvist's new theme song is "Shots"... [Newsday]
  • ...while Braden Holtby's is "Daydream Believer". [RMNB]
  • It is far too soon to panic, draw conclusions, or do anything else that frankly Caps fans are really, really good at. [WashTimes, Caps Outsider]
  • Especially considering that this "close" series may not be as close as it looks on the score sheet. [Shutdown Line]
  • Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to read a thousand really depressing articles about them. [Bog, DSP]
  • After letting a 2-0 series lead slip away, the Hershey Bears are facing an all-or-nothing Game 5 against Providence. Gulp. [Pennlive]
  • Kerry Fraser explains and upholds the non-call on Karl Alzner by the officials in Game 2. We always liked you a little more than we let on, Kerry. [TSN]
  • The best player not in the NHL right now is none other than Evgeny Kuznetsov. Any time you'd like to remove that qualifier, Kuz... [HF]
  • Jay Beagle gets the spotlight from his former stomping grounds. [ECHL]
  • Tom Hanks and Brian Williams were among the glitterati walking the blue carpet Monday night. Seriously...they have a blue carpet. And celebs walk it. Before a hockey game. [Bog]
