via <a href=""></a>

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's game featuring the seven-goals-in-seven-games Alex Ovechkin and the seven-goals-in-six-games Nashville Predators from Vogs,, Cap Centre and The Tennessean and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner On The Forecheck for pregame coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • Nashville's just one-for-twenty on the power play in the early goings. [Puck Daddy]
  • As impotent as the Preds' offense has been, the blueline has been no picnic either. [On the Forecheck]
  • In case you missed it, with Jose Theodore suffering from back spasms, Braden Holtby has been recalled from South Carolina to back up Semyon Varlamov and Tomas Fleischmann has been placed on Long-Term Injured Reserve, retroactive to the start of the season. [Dump and Chase, Washington Post]
  • Dmitri Chesnokov caught up with Evgeni Nabokov after Thursday night's loss to the Caps. [Examiner]
  • That's a beauty of a shiner Tom Poti was sporting at practice yesterday, eh? [Caps In Pictures]
  • Kind words of prologue for team President Dick Patrick from the majority owner, leading into a nice article on one of hockey's most storied family. [Ted's Take]
  • Ron Wilson wants his Leafs to be more like Ovechkin. I smell a pink slip Jack Adams in Crazy Ron's future. [Toronto Sun via KK]
  • Michal Neuvirth stopped 13 of 15 shots but got little support in a 2-1 loss in his season debut. [Lebanon Daily News]
  • In a throwaway line in a larger segment, Washington Post associate editor Eugene Robinson suggests that, since Rush Limbaugh's personal race-related beliefs apparently make him undesirable as an NFL owner, "maybe he can buy a hockey team or something." Nice cheap shot. [MSNBC (video; 4:30 mark)]
  • Finally, thanks to Beth and Bill for sending along this picture of their right-to-the-point license plate:
