Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's rematch of last week's Caps win from Vogs, CSN Washington, NHL.com, Peerless and Rock The Red.net, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Canes Country for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • A look at the Caps' intra-divisional dominance. [Washington Post]
  • Semyon Varlamov has been placed on injured reserve and is thus unavailable for this weekend's back-to-back games. [Washington Examiner]
  • It was blue collar/fan fave day on the Bog yesterday, with great stuff on Matt Bradley and Quintin Laing. [D.C. Sports Bog, D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Eric Fehr gets some major fantasy love (hey now) and a comparison to a guy who played more than a thousand NHL games. I'll take the under. [Dobber Hockey]
  • Jim Kelley answers his critics (more or less). Time to move on... [SI.com]
  • ... to another MSM smakedown! [BanginPanger]
  • Crosby vs. Ovechkin: The Infomercial. [Puck Daddy]
  • Plenty of Caps stuff in the Post's special "Best of the Decade" section. [Washington Post]
  • Alex Ovechkin can be romantically linked to Megan Fox in just five degrees of separation (passing through Paris Hilton along the way, of course, as she's the Springfield Interchange of such connections), though "dated" is likely overstating that first link. [Who's Dated Who via The Cult of Hockey]
  • Apparently AO and Mike Green are not currently "among the best in the game." Um, okay. [ESPN]
  • Gabby, reviewed. [Montreal Gazette]
  • Delly leaves Barrie for Team Canada. [Barrie Examiner]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1981, "Washington's Dennis Maruk scored twice and added four assists, and rookie Chris Valentine had a goal and four assists in the Capitals' 11-2 win against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs. It was Maruk's second six point game in a week!"
  • Finally, (again, per the HHoF), on this date back in 1992, "National Hockey League Governors named Gary Bettman as the first NHL Commissioner in league history, effective Feb. 1, 1993." Happy Anniversary!
