New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from us, Tarik (blog, gamer), Vogs, DCEx, Joe B., Ed Frankovic, Peerless, RMNB, OFB, RMNB, Cap Centre, St. Pete Times and Tampa Trib.
  • A roundup of reactions to Ovechkin vs. Downie vs. Bradley (and make sure to see Steinz's post). [FanPost]
  • My take? Ovi showed absolutely everything he needed to when he dropped the gloves (and bucket) with a guy who has 46 fights since the lockout, and Brads did the right thing by stepping in.
  • A former Caps captain calls the current cap's hit on Downie "dirty." [St. Pete Times]
  • Previews of tonight's Southeast showdown from Peerless and NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Litter Box Cats for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • This is the fourth meeting of the season between these two teams, with the Caps taking all three decisions so far by 4-1, 7-4 and 6-2 scores.
  • Jeff Schultz Love, Part I. [CI]
  • Jeff Schultz Love, Part II. [5ive Hole]
  • Jeff Schultz Love, Part III. [FanPost]
  • Jeff Schultz Love, Part IV. [Hockey Independent]
  • Alex Ovechkin continues to be pretty clutch. [The Hockey News]
  • Is the current incarnation the best team in Caps history? Magic 8-ball says, "Ask again in June." [Loose Pucks]
  • I'd be typically snarky about this Mike Wise rant, but the rant is just sad and mean - no need to add anything. [CSN Washington (who, btw, is complicit in the shock jock schtick by providing the clips of the dedicated and passionate fans about whom Wise attacks)]
  • After that, take a does of real class featuring Chris Clark. [The Hockey News]
  • AO on Gilbert Arenas... because you know you wanted to know his thoughts on his fellow $100-million man. Or not. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Boyd Gordon is getting his groove back. [CSN Washington]
  • Bruce Boudreau with Hershey love. [Capitals]
  • In fact, the organization is rockin', top-to-bottom. [Cap Centre]
  • John Carlson has "age-belying poise," which is a good thing. [Patriot-News]
  • More local pond hockey fun. [Off Wing Opinion, OFB]
  • Finally, happy 56th birthday to Mike Palmateer.
