New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Be sure to tune in for another sure-to-be-interesting episode of Japers' Rink Radio tomorrow morning at 10:00 as Pepper and Russell welcome CSN Washington's Corey Masisak. It's sure to be like 24/7, but with more cursing*.
  • Notes and assorted (non-24/7-related) whatnot from yesterday's practice. [CI, bridgetds (pics)]
  • Decoding the whiteboards. [Puck Daddy]
  • It's said that the optimist invented the airplane and the pessimist the parachute. (It's also said that two wrongs don't make a right, but two Wrights made the first airplane.) Anyway, here's a biplane or something. [Slap Shots]
  • Sticking with the sunshine, one of the bright spots in Wednesday night's loss to Anaheim was the play of Brooks Laich. [CI]
  • Another bright spot has been the play (if not the result) over most of the past six games, generally. [RLS]
  • Mike Wise blames HBO for the Caps' recent woes. In jest. We hope. [WaPo (Wise)]
  • Alright, here are your gobs of 24/7-related coverage (including the teams' own reactions in the first few). [Caps365 (video), WaPo (Steinberg/Carrera), Ted's Take, CI, CI, TBD, Post-Gazette, Down Goes BrownKurtenblog, Red Light, ESPN (Burnside), Peerless, Peerless, SB Nation DC, Mr. IrrelevantBox Seats, The PensBlog]
  • Here's Mike Green's spot on LaVar and Dukes yesterday. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Like Vogs before him, E.J. Hradek points to the team's five-on-five play as the biggest problem currently facing the team. [ESPN (Hradek; $)]
  • Michal Neuvirth and Semyon Varlamov show off their Winter Classic lids. [Caps365 (video)]
  • That Matt Bradley was always such a nice boy. [OFB]
  • Rosters are set for the Winter Classic alumni game. I predict the Caps alums jump out to a 3-1 lead before eventually losing 4-3. You know, for old times' sake. [NHL, PHT]
  • Here are some of the big-ticket items that might be on your holiday/trade deadline wishlist (if you're GMGM, that is). [ESPN (LeBrun)]
  • Bobblemania. [Capitals Outsider]
  • D.J. King has a sweet hockey name, so he's got that going for him. Which is nice. [Deep End]
  • A couple of former Caps will be honorary captains at the AHL All-Star game. [AHL]
  • Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby on TPIR. Un. Real. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Grabbing a cold one with Peerless. [Peerless]
  • And speaking of suds, are you looking for somewhere to watch the Winter Classic? Here's a spot. [Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse]
  • Well isn't that a dashing look, Evgeny Kuznetsov? [FanShot]
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Craig Berube and happy 52nd to Dave Poulin.
