Wednesday Caps Clips: Sabres @ Caps Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's Caps/Sabres game from NHL.com and Peerless, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Die By The Blade for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • The roster shuffle continues, with John Carlson and Andrew Gordon returned to Hershey and Karl Alzner apparently coming back up to D.C.
  • Vogs details just how bad third periods have been for the Caps. [Dump and Chase]
  • What's so frustrating about some of these recent losses is that the Caps are making a lot of the same mistakes they've been making for the past year and change. [Washington Times]
  • Plenty of links regarding the passing of a truly monumental Washingtonian. [Capitals Insider, Peerless, Mr. Irrelevant, Capitals,  and a great pic via @dcsportsbog]
  • A bit soon perhaps, but part of what this might mean for The Boss. [Washington Times]
  • Then there are the outright celebratory tones being voiced in some corners of the Interwebs. [OFB]
  • More power rankings, with the Caps holding at third here at SB Nation, at fourth at CBC and at fifth at SI.com, and up one to fourth at FOX Sports.
  • Mike Green shot a Geico ad, caveman and all. [The Cooley Zone]
  • Speaking of Green, he's certainly on the bubble for Team Canada... [CBC]
  • ... even if his stock is up in some places. [CTV]
  • Barry Melrose isn't surprised it's taking Alex Ovechkin a few games to regain his form post-injury. [ESPN (video)]
  • Everywhere he goes, The Boss gets hounded. [Ted's Take]
  • Good stuff on Cody Eakin. [SLAM!]
  • Per the HHOF, on this date back in 1992, "Defenseman Al Iafrate scored a goal and added three assists as the Washington Capitals began a team-record 13 game home undefeated streak (9-0-4), with a 6-2 win over the Boston Bruins." How about starting a similar streak tonight, eh boys?
  • Finally, happy 59th birthday to Bob Kelly.
