Monday Caps Clips: Backstrom, Discipline and More

New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Nicklas Backstrom gets some well-deserved recognition. [USA Today]
  • Don't look now, but the Caps have actually become a very disciplined team, with Shaone Morrisonn among those leading the way. [WaPo]
  • John Carlson/Team USA party pics... at least the ones his mother could/would/should see. [OFB]
  • Trip-to-the-owners'-box stories never get old. [RMNB]
  • Interesting note from Boston Globe über-journo Kevin Paul Dupont, noting that the Bruins are so desperate for offense they might be interested in acquiring... well, see for yourself. [@GlobeKPD]
  • I thought it was un-Canadian to complain about the weather. [@EricFehr16]
  • As bad as this year's Caps' penalty kill has been at times, it's come a long way, baby. [BtN]
  • Seven years ago tonight, Jaromir Jagr had a hat trick and added four assists in a 12-2 rout of Florida, tying Dino Ciccarelli's franchise mark for points in a game.  (Good Jagr memories are few and far between, but this is definitely one.)
  • Seven years prior to that, per the HHoF, "Washington's Michal Pivonka scored a career-high six points (2 goals & 4 assists), and Peter Bondra had his 4th career hat trick and two assists as the Capitals won 6-1 over the visiting Ottawa Senators."
  • Recapping the Bears' weekend. [RtR]
  • Fallout from the KHL mega-brawl that involved at least four former Caps. [Puck Daddy]
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Tim Bergland.
