Friday Caps Clips: A Rare Division Loss

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss - only the fourth in twenty Southeast Division games - from the us, the WaPo (blog, gamer), Vogs, DCEx, Joe B., Ed Frankovic, Peerless, FFODC, StC, MD Pro SportsA Capital Offense and RMNB.
  • The pundits aren't picking the Caps. Good. [TSN]
  • Which is more impressive - the maturation of Mike Green or the numbers he's put up? OK, fine, it's the numbers. But the maturation is closing the gap, and quickly. []
  • Green as the second-best blueliner in the League this season? I can buy that. [Puck Prospectus]
  • "Caps most explosive even without 'O' -- and can play D, too" Could you talk in my good ear? I thought I heard you say the Caps can play D, too. [CBSSports]
  • You knew it was coming: Jim Kelley ripping Alex Ovechkin. What you might not have seen coming? Kelley ripping Ted Leonsis. And the Caps' PR staff. [SI]
  • Jeff Schultz love? Why yes, I'll link to it. [Corey Masisak]
  • Ah, the spring of 2008. I remember it like it was two years ago. [Corey Masisak]
  • An interview with Jason Chimera completes the Corey hat trick (a natural hattie at that - three in a row). [Corey Masisak]
  • Will the Caps bring back Jose Theodore? Should they? It's a cop out, but I'm going with "depends on the price." [RtR]
  • The Caps are good today and set up to be good tomorrow. [The Hockey News]
  • A little score sheet tidying up. [Dump n' Chase]
  • One of your own - Your Nation's Capital - gets a bit of the star treatment. [Barrie Examiner]
  • Finally, per the HHoF, on this date back in 2001, "Calle Johansson scored a goal and an assist playing in his 1,000th career NHL game." To date, only four Swedes have played more games in the NHL than Calle Jo.
