Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's tussle with the B's from Vogs,, Peerless, CSN New England, NESN, RtR, KOL, LIR and RLS, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Stanley Cup of Chowder for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • Notes and pics from yesterday's practice. [CI, Caps Snaps]
  • The Caps are off to a great start, points-wise, but the hockey hasn't been particularly pretty outside of  Michal Neuvirth's goaltending, a few clutch goals and the penalty kill. [Masisak, Carrera]
  • Speaking of Neuvy, he's currently running sixth in The Hockey News' Vezina race... [THN]
  • ... and tops one site's netminders de la semaine. [In Goal Magazine]
  • Word of the penalty kill's success is drawing some attention outside of D.C... [ESPN]
  • ... and more attention here at home. [CI]
  • Alan May on how to succeed in the salary cap era (spoiler alert: Lou Lamoriello's doing it wrong). [CSN Washington]
  • Is it just Elliotte Friedman, or is Alexander Ovechkin concentrating on shooting low? (Here's the answer, by the way.) [CBC]
  • And speaking of AO, he and Semyon Varlamov were up in Bristol to shoot an ad for the Worldwide Leader yesterday... [ESPN, PHT, Alex Ovetjkin]
  • ... where Varly said (presumably sans interpreter) he's starting Thursday night. [@Buccigross]
  • Here's a Brooks Laich radio hit from the other day that slipped through the cracks. [KJR AM (audio)]
  • Plenty of pics (but none funnier than the first few) from last night's Season Ticket Holder party. [Capitals News Network]
  • An indispensable guide to getting your beer on at the VC. (Me? I'm a Section 107 guy.) [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Mathieu Perreault proves he's not too small. OK, maybe "proves" is too strong a word to use just yet. [LDN]
  • A close look at Dany Sabourin's Hershey debut. [Stack the Pads]
  • Grant McNeill is the king of all Bears, apparently. [RtR]
  • Pics from Opening Night in Chocolatetown (Joel Rechlicz is mortifying). [SHOE]
  • Bear Tracks! [LDN]
  • The Caps' first pick in the 2008 draft - Anton Gustafsson - has packed up his gear and headed back to Sweden because "he is not enjoying hockey at this point in his career." Too bad for the kid and for the team, and in a bizarre coincidence (right?), that makes two of the Caps' first three picks from that draft who have already bailed on hockey. [Dump 'n Chase, Rink Rebel]
  • A look at the kids. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 27th birthday to Boyd Gordon (and thanks for the reminder, CO).
