Your savory breakfast links:

  • Group A played and won their first Duchesne Cup game in a yawn-inducing an epic shootout, thanks to Boyd Gordon's sixth round goal:
    • Singled out for strong performances were Michal Neuvirth and Jose Theodore, Karl Alzner and John Carlson, Keith Aucoin and Nicklas Backstrom. [Capitals Insider]
    • Singled out for other reasons was the top line of Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin and Mike Knuble, of whom Bruce Boudreau said, "They were fine, but I don't think the pace was anywhere near where it should be. They're just good players and they were getting by on being good players." [In The Room]
    • Video of the shootout and AO's and Bruce's respective media scrums. [Caps365]
    • "Neuvirth suffered a deep scratch on the side of his neck from Alex Ovechkin's skate during the scrimmage," but is fine. That's a little too close for comfort. [@tarikelbashir]
    • Corey on the logjam on the blueline. [Washington Times]
    • A recap of the scrimmage and a quick chat with Oskar Osala. [OFB]
    • CapsChick on the battles down the right side. [VFtCS]

  • Wait, there are more than two goalies at Caps' camp worthing committing pixels to? Inconceivable! [The Hockey News]
  • A handful of Caps attended last night's Sneaker Ball, which was no doubt highlighted by this reunion of Easterns Motors ad alums... or with George McPhee being named D.C. Sports Executive of the Year and AO being named D.C. Sportsman of the Year. [via @nateewell]
  • The Caps have re-upped with WFED and WTOP. [Capitals]
  • Fake Twitter accounts... so five minutes ago, people. [Washington Post]
  • AO might need to brush up on his economics. [NBC Washington]

  • In case you missed 'em, some of the quotes that didn't make it into yesterday's Bob Woods post can be found here.
  • Highlights from the FanForum telecon with Matt Bradley and Brooks Laich. [FanPost]
  • Win Caps Convention tickets by filling in a blank. Sounds easy enough. [Rock the Red.net]
  • The Oilers' Robbie Schremp "has to convince new Oilers head coach Pat Quinn ... that he isn't like forward Alexandre Giroux, who scored 60 goals with Washington Capitals farm team in Hershey last season but has played only 12 NHL games and he's 28." Robbie Schremp could do a lot worse. [Edmonton Journal]
