Your savory breakfast links:

  • Team A (pictured below) won the Duchesne Cup with a 9-5 victory over Team B, and a number of the campers head to Buffalo for the team's first game since May:
    • Video evidence of the final day of the tourney, and post-scrimmage scrums with Mike Knuble, Alex Ovechkin and Bruce Boudreau. [Caps365]
    • The top line of Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Knuble (who really should be paying the Caps for the honor and not vice versa) dominated. [Dump and Chase]
    • Pucksandbooks was duly impressed. [OFB]
    • Other standouts included Brian Pothier and Kyle Wilson. [In the Room]
    • The Duchesne Cup does indeed exist, and it's a nice looking trophy at that. [OFB]
    • Corey profiles bubblicious defenseman Tyler Sloan. [In The Room]
    • Karl Alzner needs to "wow" to make the team. [Washington Times]
    • Tarik on Michal Neuvirth, who didn't give up eight goals yesterday. [Washington Post]
    • JWH on Keith Aucoin. [John Walton Hockey]
    • "Bruce Boudreau called me into his office and asked me if I’d like to stick around." I've gotta imagine that'd be pretty awesome if you're Ryan Jasinsky. Or Michael Nylander. [Youngstown Phantoms]
    • Boudreau, the teacher. [OFB]
    • Pictures! [TTT Hockey, again, again and again; Caps in Pictures; and again]

  • Tarik on fake Twitter accounts, a scourge of the Intertubes. [Washington Post]
  • Brendan Morrison recounts his "Survivorman" experience to Steinz. [Bog]
  • Wednesday's Caps Report with Vogs and Stretch. [Caps365 (video)]
  • The "Japers' Rink Ticket Exchange" is up and running. Awesome work, Zephyr - we'll get a permanent link up soon. [Japers' Rink Ticket Exchange]
  • We'd like to welcome Hockey Independent to the blogosphere if for no other reason than their Ovechkin/Munch photoshop. Awesome. [Hockey Independent]
  • Finally, happy 24th birthday to the best hockey player on earth.
