Your savory breakfast links:

  • A look at the race for the Richard Trophy, including one of the all-time great goal-scorers comparing Sidney Crosby to a piece of woman's clothing (and it's meant as a compliment). [NHL.com, NHL.com, NHL.com, NHL.com]
  • Alex Ovechkin's back... [Capitals]
  • ... and looking for hardware. [WaPo]
  • The Caps get ready to make their run. [USA Today]
  • "Since the 1990-91 season, only three teams have won a Stanley Cup without having a No. 1 goaltender who played 50 or more games heading into the postseason." And... ? [From The Rink]
  • I can't, in good conscience, tell you to go vote for Dean Evason for Assistant Coach of the Year when he's "the primary architect" of one of the worst penalty kills in the League. [FanHouse]
  • But I can (and will) tell you to go vote for Jeff Schultz for Best Defensive Defenseman... [FanHouse]
  • ... even if Mirtle's numbers say Tom Poti is better. Uh, yeah. [Globe and Mail]
  • Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun pick their award winners. [ESPN]
  • Milan Jurcina on his return to DC. [Capitals]
  • NBC tries, fails to generate interest in Sunday's game. [Puck the Media]
  • A couple of Caps notes in the "Best and Worst of 2009-10," including a Cap questioning his Olympic coach (and not who you might think). [SI]

  • Finally, per the HHoF, on this date back in 1989, "Kelly Miller scored at :51 of overtime as the Capitals won 4-3 at Philadelphia, in Game 3 of the Patrick Division Semi-Finals." The win gave the Caps a 2-1 series lead... and we won't talk about what happened next.
