New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's game against Brian Pothier and the Hurricanes from Vogs, Peerless, CSN Washington and, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Canes Country and Canes Now for coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • To refresh your memory, this is the fourth meeting of the season between these Southeast Division rivals, with the Caps taking the first two games by 3-2 and 4-3 counts before Carolina bounced back with a 6-3 win in late December.
  • A look at the "traded places" storyline of tonight's game. [Dump n' Chase]
  • Notes from yesterday's practice. [CI, DCEx, Caps In Pictures (practice pics)]
  • The Caps know that their penalty kill needs to get better, and fast. [WaPo]
  • Good health and a healthy fear of riding the pine have Eric Fehr playing well. [Corey Masisak]
  • Eric Belanger on a male underwear model, his once-purple arm and more. [CSN Washington]
  • On bringing the new guys up to speed. [FanHouse]
  • Milan Jurcina is thrilled to be back in D.C., so presumably he'll happily re-sign here in the off-season on the cheap, right? [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Speaking of re-upping in the summer, would bringing Jose Theodore back make sense? [Hockey Independent]
  • Unrelated (right?), Semyon Varlamov's struggles are going to put the Caps in a spot if they don't end rather quickly. [Homer McFanboy]
  • Print a copy of this one: a Steinberg post with numbers in it that don't represent television ratings. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • It sure does look as if John Carlson is here to stay. [Patriot-News]
  • Somewhat related, today is AHL Clear Day. Will Hershey do anything to bolster their blueline depth? [FanShot]
  • Vote on who's got the most annoying fans in the League. [Mother Pucker Hockey]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1979, "Washington's Tom Rowe scored 4 goals (including his first career hat trick) & added 2 assists, and Dennis Maruk had two goals and four assists in the Capitals' 7-5 win over the Blues. Caps' Rolf Edberg set a team rookie record with four assists."
  • Finally, happy 30th birthday to Stephen Peat and happy 37th to Martin Brochu.
