New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's inevitable letdown game against the Coyotes from Vogs, Peerless, FFODC, RtR and, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Five For Howling for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • To refresh your memory... this.
  • Mike Green hopes to play tonight and, in case you missed it, John Carlson was returned to Hershey (someone needs to diagram that kid's travel over the past couple of weeks). [WaPo]
  • In case you missed it in the overnight, check out Tuvan's translation of SovSport interviews with a trio of big-name Russian Olympians. [Japers' Rink]
  • Speaking of Carlson, he chats about his first NHL point (the temporary one and the permanent one). [FanHouse]
  • It was all rainbows and puppy dogs in Caps land yesterday, and the Thomas Boswell wrote about it. [WaPo]
  • The Caps: Comeback Kids. [CSN Washington]
  • Alex Ovechkin is a great player and all, but he gets fat on a weak Southeast Division, right? Wrong. [Hockey Or Die!]
  • With a-buck-thirty-two left in Thursday night's game and the decision no longer in doubt, Pens color analyst Bob Errey turns to humor... or something. [YouTube (h/t, YNC)]
  • The Caps are growing up before our very eyes. I'm getting weepy. [SI]
  • Despite their constant protestations to the contrary, Pens fans are obsessed with Ovechkin. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Seeing the big numbers last night's game did, NBC has picked Caps/Pens for its Sunday, February 7 broadcast. [Puck the Media]
  • Somewhat related to that last point, does anyone have any creative ideas for how we can encourage NBC to pick Caps/'Hawks over Flyers/Rangers for March 14? Something tells me that the Peacock would be leaning towards making an awful decision for hockey fans.
  • Don't get CSN+? You're not alone. [Howard County Times]
  • @GreenLife52 on Twitter. [DCist]
  • Can the Caps break the NHL mark for most 20-goal scorers in a season? In a word, no. [5ive Hole]
  • The Rangers #needahellofalotmorebradley. Or something. What an embarrassment. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • An update on former and future Caps and Caps picks playing in Russia... [RMNB]
  • ... as two of them are named All-Stars. [Russian Hockey Fans]
  • Speaking of Russia, they've put together a list of "substitutes" for their Olympic squad that includes a few familiar names... and two goaltenders (Vasiliy Koschechkin and Alexander Eremenko). [Puck Daddy]
  • Joel Broda turns a trick au naturale. [NHL]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 2001, "Peter Bondra became the Washington Capitals all-time leader in game-winning goals, when he picked up the 55th of his career in a 5-2 win against the Lightning at Tampa Bay. He broke the record held by Mike Gartner." To answer your next question, 34.
  • Finally, happy 49th birthday to Timo Blomqvist.
