Your savory breakfast links:

  • Good stuff on Bruce Boudreau and his goalies... but no "he's hard on goalies because he doesn't understand the position" reference? [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Speaking of his goalies, Jose Theodore has been really, really good for two-plus months now. [Corey Masisak, The Gazette]
  • Brooks Laich on tomorrow night's game: "Just another hockey game. It'll be a good hockey game. A very good team, a team we respect, but just another game." Agreed. [CI]
  • What to watch for down the stretch. [Bruce Boudreau, WaPo, Peerless, OFB]
  • Is Alex Ovechkin closing in on a third-straight Hart Trophy? Yes? Just checking. [FanHouse]
  • His coach sure thinks so. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • We all know how great a leader AO is, but vote and let everyone else know. []
  • Related: "Alexander Ovechkin's Nomination Mocks the Values of the Messier Leadership Award" is guaranteed to be the most unintentionally funny headline you read all day. [ChicagoNow]
  • For just the second time since March of 2007, Mike Green has only three shots on goal over a four-game span. The first time? In last year's playoffs. Might Green be heading for another post-season let down? [RtR]
  • David Steckel has been the third-most successful faceoff man in the League since 1997-98. Impressive. [BtN]
  • Dean Evason: assistant coach of the year? [FanHouse]
  • Fresh power rankings are out, with the Caps holding onto the top spot at Sporting News, ESPN, TSN, CBS Sports and down one to second at The Hockey News.
  • Nevertheless, pundits continue to pick "other" when given the opportunity to call the Caps Cup faves. Which is good. [CBC]
  • Did the Caps really offer Tomas Fleischmann, Karl Alzner and a pick to Toronto for Tomas Kaberle? Doubtful. [The Star]
  • Episode 6 of Caps Red Line Monday is now available online. [Caps365 (video)]
  • If you're still burning about the new Caps goal song, find support here. [Hockey Chronicles]
  • Got an gift card burning a hole in your pocket? Here's a list of what you should get (once you have purchased authentic home and away Jeff Schultz jerseys, of course) and what you should avoid. [Examiner]
  • Speaking of pushing product, the Caps' "10 Greatest Games" DVD set hits stores today, and i's never too early to think about Christmas gifts. []
  • If you missed the Bears' St. Pat's Day unis, check 'em out (and what I wouldn't give to see Mathieu Perreault, while wearing one of those, say, "They're magically delicious!"). [RtR]
  • You will either love Stefan Della Rovere or love to hate Stefan Della Rovere. We're already solidly in that first camp. [Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of Delly, your weekly Farm Report. [FanPost]
  • Finally, happy 22nd birthday to Michal Neuvirth, happy 34th to Nolan Baumgartner, and happy 52nd to Bengt-Ake Gustafsson.
