Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's match-up of nation's capitals from and Peerless, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Silver Seven for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • With injuries aplenty and a third game in four days, tonight will be a challenge for the Caps. [Washington Post]
  • Brian Pothier is giving the Caps a desperately needed second offensive threat from the blueline. [Washington Times]
  • Ever wonder what it takes for a team to get out of town and ready for the second game of a back-to-back in another city? Wonder no more. [OFB]
  • A frustrated Alex Ovechkin after the Leafs game. [National Post]
  • After the jump, Mike Green's life as a movie (via ESPN the Mag), including who plays GreenLife52 (here's a hint).
  • You didn't think Green could go to Toronto and not be asked about the possibility of making Team Canada, did you? [Toronto Sun]
  • Related: Damien Cox with a pretty accurate observation regarding Green. [The Star]
  • The Caps stand fourth overall in Ross McKeon's first-quarter power rankings. [Y!]
  • A postgame ... buffering ... chat about the Caps ... buffering ... following Saturday night's loss (and ... buffering ... featuring Corey Masisak). [The Hockey News]
  • Really cool shots from Friday night's Caps/Habs game. [Tic Tac Toe Hockey]
  • And some nice shots from Saturday's Bears/Falcons game. [Caps In Pictures]
  • Are the Caps "one-way offensive divas?" That seems to be the implication. [Edmonton Journal]
  • Semyon Varlamov is apparently fourth on the Russian depth chart for Vancouver, but if he keeps playing the way he has been, they'd be crazy to leave him off the roster. [The Hockey News]
  • More on that last point (or at least the "playing the way he has been" part). [CP]
  • Call me a homer, but Varly - top 15 in the NHL in all three major goalie stat categories and tops in point percentage (min. 5 games) - has gotta be one of the top five rookies in the League right now, no? [The Star]
  • Cody Eakin has already matched his goal totals from last season and is leading the WHL in goals. [TSN]
  • Finally, happy 22nd birthday, Nicklas Backstrom (and happy second anniversary to Bruce Boudreau's first NHL win).
