Friday Caps Clips: Wild @ Caps Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's Caps/Wild game from Vogs, and Peerless, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Hockey Wilderness for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • Alex Ovechkin is "getting closer" to getting back in the lineup. Of course, "closer" isn't necessarily "close" (though it sounds as if he's both, with the smart money on a return Tuesday at the earliest). [Washington Post,]
  • Great interview with Semyon Varlamov following his win in relief on Wednesday night. [Capitals Insider]
  • AO has more shots on goal through four seasons than any player in League history (with 42% more than the guy in second place), but have his shots on goal actually been under-counted? [Puck Prospectus]
  • Mike Green doesn't even get a mention as being in the running for Team Canada. Methinks someone goofed. []
  • But Tomas Fleischmann sure is making a case for the Czech team, no? [Washington Times]
  • What a Michael Nylander move might mean for the Hershey Bears. [York Daily Record]
  • Not breaking news: a ref missed a call against the Caps. Breaking: he admits it. [The Hockey News]
  • WWPBD? [Homer McFanboy]
  • Several Caps (including the coaches) talk about their first NHL fights. Worth it for the brilliant intro. [Caps365 (video)]
  • Because I can't let something like the above go without fact checking, Matt Bradley is wrong, Chris Clark is right, John Erskine is right (as far as regular season bouts go), Dean Evason is right, Eric Fehr is right, Green is right, Mike Knuble is right, Brooks Laich is right, Quintin Laing is unclear, Shaone Morrisonn is right, Brian Pothier is right, Tyler Sloan is... hmmm, David Steckel is right, and is awesome.
  • Speaking of guys with grit, Stefan Della Rovere talks about playing in the Super Series. [Metro Canada]
  • Could the Caps be headed to Russia for games against KHL teams? Seems far-fetched, but "anything is possible." [Puck Daddy]
  • Finally, happy 40th birthday to Patrik Augusta.
