New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's rematch of last week's unwelcomed thriller from Vogs, NHL.com, Peerless and Cap Centre, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Bird Watchers Anonymous for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • Yesterday's big news was the disclosure that Quintin Laing has the H1N1 virus (more here).
  • "He told me I was the biggest, fattest bleeping pig he had ever seen. He told me I was fatter than bleeping Ken Hitchcock. He told me I was going to die because I was such a fat bleep." Sean Avery is such a pleasant character. [Washington Times]
  • A big secret leaked out at Kettler yesterday: the Caps try to win the first game of each week. [NHL.com]
  • There's a subtle, almost imperceptible difference between how a couple of local owners view the media. See if you can pick up on it. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Tuesday's Caps/Flyers game set a new regular-season ratings record for Versus' hockey coverage, and the Caps have now been one half of three of Versus' top four most-watched games of the season. [Puck Daddy, @N_E_I]
  • A look ahead to November. [Rock The Red.net]
  • Burning questions revisited. [D.C. Landing Strip]
  • "Ovechkin" on the back of a 'Skins jersey? Well, it might be the only way they'll ever beat Philly again. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • According to the Hockey Hall of Fame, on this date back in 1991, "Washington goaltender Don Beaupre recorded his 12th career shutout, and Peter Bondra and Dimitri Khristich each had a goal and three assists as the Capitals won 8-0 at Pittsburgh." Good times, good times.
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Chris Corrinet and happy 50th to the one and only Mike Gartner.
