Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The Caps' coaching search appears to be concluding and Team Russia will contend with the Finns for the World Championship gold medal.

A few savory Sunday brunch links:

  • All signs point to an announcement soon that the Barry Trotz Era has begun for the Washington Capitals. [WaPo, CSNW, NBC4, TSN, Eye on Hockey, PHT, RMNB]
    • What to expect when you're expecting this particular new bench boss. [Rink]
    • And hey, what might we expect from a new general manager? [Rink]
  • The World Championships have reached the medal round:
    • Alex Ovechkin recorded an assist in Russia's 3-1 semi-final victory over Sweden, and should be ready to take on the Finns for gold today... [CSNW]
    • ... but he and his team may have to do without their head coach, as Coach Oleg Znarok over-reacted to some end of the game mayhem, perhaps suspendably so. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 22nd 23rd birthday to Michael Latta, and happy 57th birthday to Robert Picard.
