Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The next chapter in Capitals history begins, the Reading Royals' season ends, and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • And so, the search begins:
    • Changing course. [Dump 'n' Chase]
    • Whither the Washington Capitals? [WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW (video), THN]
    • The GM search could take a while, especially since many potential execs won't be available until their current teams are done with the playoffs. [CSNW]
    • That pesky "team identity" thing must be addressed as the Caps work to define what they need out of a new head coach. [CSNW]
    • Oh right, and the perennial Alex Ovechkin question... [CSNW]
    • ... Dick Patrick's answer - he'll take two! [WaPo]
    • Speaking of Patrick, listen up, Ted? [FanPost]
  • Looking back at 2013-2014:
  • Oh hai there Dennis Wideman, why are you in the news this week? [TFP]
  • In World Cup tuneup action, Evgeny Kuznetsov failed to score on Philipp Grubauer, who backstopped Germany to a 3-0 win over Russia (in a game which Alex Ovechkin and Dmitry Orlov watched as scratches). [RMNB]
  • The Reading Royals saw their quest for a Kelly Cup repeat come to an end with an overtime goal in Fort Wayne ... [@RRoyalsHockey]
  • ... and two promising Caps prospects will hang up their skates for the summer as Madison Bowey and Andre Burakovsky 's teams were eliminated in the WHL and OHL semi-finals. Garrett Haar and the Portland Winterhawks ousted the Kelowna Rockets and will take on the Edmonton Oil Kings for the WHL crown and a ticket to the Memorial Cup tourney. [RMNB]
  • Finally, from the "Caps on Holiday" files, Brooks Laich has been caught going grocery shopping again. [Daily Mail]
