Saturday Caps Clips: Caps @ Thrashers Game Day

New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's Southeast showdown from Vogs, Peerless and NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Bird Watchers Anonymous for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • To refresh your memory, the Caps have won both of the previous meetings between the teams this season, beating the Thrash 5-4 and 4-3 back in October. 
  • SouthLeast? Whatever - just play the games on the schedule (oh, and the Devils have gotten fatter on the other four teams in the SED than the Caps have... when their lights have worked, at least). [FanHouse]
  • The Caps get an "A" on their midterm from Professor Burnside. [ESPN]
  • Why there was really only one choice for captain. [Love the Game]
  • Checking in with the newest Cap. [CSN Washington]
  • SB Nation hands out its mid-season hardware and makes it clear that my vote is but one of many. [SB Nation]
  • A look at Michal Neuvirth's new mask. So it's "Neuvi" now, and not "Neuvy"? [Caps365 (video)]
  • Speaking of Neuvi, he and Braden Holtby are holding down the organizational fort in net. [LDN]
  • On Caps team toughness. [DCist]
  • Keeping in compliance with our "Carrie Milbank + Alex Ovechkin = Link" rule, this. [The Hockey Show (video... that you've seen before)]
  • As far as third jerseys go, this Caps concept ain't bad. [Icethetics]
  • We all know Ronnie was a righty, right? [@WashCaps]
  • "You can't help but wonder how much Green's exclusion from Yzerman's team will hurt his Norris Trophy chances." Good point. [SportingNews]
  • Jason Bacashihua is having visa problems which have forced the Bears to sign a goalie for the weekend. Classic. [Stack the Pads]
  • Hershey tied a team record with its eleventh win in a row last night. [Ed Frankovic's Blog, Bears Minute]
  • Pitchin' "John Carlson Night." I'm on board. [OFB]
  • Part of what Olie Kolzig is up to these days. [News Tribune]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1998, "Dale Hunter had three assists to give him 1,000 career NHL points. The milestone came in a Capitals' 4-1 win over the visiting Philadelphia Flyers." It also put the captain in his own one-man club.
  • Finally, happy 55th birthday to Bruce Boudreau. Anyone have any gift ideas for Gabby?
