Friday Caps Clips: The (Streak) Hangover

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from the us, SB Nation, WaPo (blog, gamer), Vogs, DCEx, Joe B., Ed Frankovic, Peerless, Puck Daddy, RMNB, CK, StC, Hockey Mom and The Ottawa Citizen.
  • Bruce Boudreau was none too happy after the game. [John Walton Hockey]
  • In case you missed it, Karl Alzner and Chris Bourque were recalled from Hershey prior to the game.
  • "The Caps' GM was pretty clear with me recently that he's not going to overpay at the trade deadline." Are there other GMs who tell the media they plan to give a king's ransom for a rental? [ESPN]
  • I'm an absolute sucker for translated Alex Ovechkin interviews. [RMNB, Alex Ovetjkin (and yes, it's two translations of the same interview)]
  • Some Nicklas Backstrom love. [The Hockey News]
  • Taking a moment to thank someone who probably doesn't get enough of it. [FanPost]
  • The Caps and their Vancouver rooting interests. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • If ratings are your thing, Steinz is like a local Puck the Media. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • The Super Secret Computer Diary of Mike Green. Heh. [Hockey Chronicles]
  • Catching up with Olaf Kolzig. [The Hockey News]
  • Really interesting stuff on shift lengths and normal players' efficacy as they get longer and longer (the shifts, not the players, that is). [BtN]
  • The Bears are chasing history. [LDN]
  • Finally, happy 30th birthday to Rico Fata, a member of The Club.
