Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps currently have seven players nursing various injuries... [Masisak]
  • ... and that doesn't include Michael Nylander. Get well soon, Nyls. [Puck Daddy]
  • The injuries, however, are no excuse for the team to tail off (except that, in reality they kind of are). [Carrera]
  • More notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice. [Dump 'n Chase, CI, Caps365 video (Boudreau, players)]
  • For those of you keeping score at home, Braden Holtby was recalled yesterday and Dany Sabourin and Jay Beagle were returned to Hershey.
  • Speaking of Holtby, here's a closer look at his play this past weekend. [Stack the Pads]
  • Why how the Caps play in October actually does matter. [CSN Washington (May)]
  • Getting Mike Green "back" in the lineup on Saturday was a good thing. Getting Mike Green back in the lineup will be even better. [SB Nation DC]
  • PDO and what it means to the Caps. [RMNB]
  • Bruce Boudreau fielded questions on his players' shift lengths, making adjustments, his captain's work ethic and more in a WaPo video chat. Cool. [WaPo]
  • Wednesday night's game in Carolina is one of this week's "games to watch." Must be that whole "Joe Corvo facing his former team" storyline. [Burnside]
  • Absolutely, positively all you could possibly want to read about the Alex Ovechkin GQ profile (and then some). [GQ (spoiler alert: AO apparently "loved the Penguins" growing up), NHL.com (Rosen), Puck Daddy, D.C. Sports Bog, DCist]
  • Sittin' at the end of the bar for another round. [Peerless]
  • Now this is one hell of a way to rock the red. [Explore Howard (h/t FanShot)]
  • Former Cap Bob Sirois on how it's tougher to be a French-Canadian NHLer than one of those English-speakin' types. [Toronto Sun]
  • Caps prospect Caleb Herbert is the USHL Player of the Week... [USHL]
  • ... and Rookie Camp invitee Andy Miele is INCH's PoW. [INCH]
