Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of today's game against the B's from Vogs, Peerless, RtR and NHL.com, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Stanley Cup of Chowder for coverage from the other side of today's match up.
  • To refresh your memory, this is the last of four meetings on the (regular) season between the Caps and Bruins, with the Caps taking a couple of 4-1 decisions, on Opening Night (seems like forever ago, doesn't it?) and again in early February and a 3-2 victory earlier in the week.
  • Notes from yesterday's practice. [DCEx, CI]
  • Great piece on Alex Ovechkin from Steinz. [WaPo]
  • More amicus briefs filed on Mike Green's Norris behalf. [RMNB, The Checking Line]
  • The long-awaited Karl Alzner post sees the light of Internet day. (Incidentally, John Walton called Alzner "the best defenseman in the AHL" on yesterday's edition of Japers' Rink Radio.) [Corey Masisak]
  • Bruce Boudreau participated in a League-wide conference call on Thursday, and here's the transcript. [FanPost]
  • For likely the strangest place you'll ever see a Caps jersey, check out picture number five. [National Post (h/t @truebluefan329)]
  • Speaking of jerseys... worst jersey foul ever? [Mr. Irrelevant]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1985, "Mike Gartner scored the winning goal at 21:23 of overtime to lead the Capitals to a 2-1 win over the Islanders in Washington, in Game 2 of the Patrick Division Semi-Finals. "
  • Finally, happy 32nd birthday to Ben Clymer, happy 40th birthday to Trevor Linden, and happy 49th birthday to Ron Jones.
