New, comments

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The (latest) scoring slump has Bruce Boudreau befuddled (and the rest of us wondering how long he'll keep his troops committed to a less-aggressive style of play). [CI]
  • Here's one thought: move the best scorer on the team closer to the net on the power play. [Hockey Independent]
  • Questioning the new system. [KOL]
  • Last week it was "We’re going ugly, gang, ’cause it’s the best bet for next spring." This week it's "These in-midseason-evolving Capitals aren’t where they need to be for spring" and "There is a sense of surrender settling in here." One wonders what next week might hold. [OFB]
  • Luckily for the Caps, they get another shot at the Bolts real soon. [CI]
  • John Carlson and Karl Alzner... still... gaining... acceptance. [WaPo]
  • Wall-to-wall coverage of the 24/7 finale. [Befor the show (Slap Shot Blog, CI, CI, CI) and after (NHL, SB Nation DC, SB Nation DC, SB Nation DC, RMNB, KOL)]
  • Your "no longer the Southleast!" post of the day. [Puck Daddy]
  • A behind-the-scenes look at Alex Ovechkin and Semyon Varlamov's ESPN spot that's every bit as entertaining as the ad itself. [Caps365 (video)]
  • Pretty much my two favorite athletes ever join forces. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Slow and steady is a race-winning formula. [Peerless]
  • Varly's a pretty solid fantasy play. FYI. [ESPN]
  • Tune in to 106.7 The Fan for Brooks Laich at 8:45 this morning and Mike Green at 4:45 this afternoon.
  • Logan Couture and Carlson lead E.J. Hradek's Calder pack (and Michal Neuvirth is tied for fifth). [ESPN (Hradek, $)]
  • Sid, Alex and words. [PuckUpdate]
  • Caps prospects Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitri Orlov and Cody Eakin did the organization proud at the WJCs. [NHL, KG's District, Buzzing The Net]
  • Checking in on Quintin Laing. [RtR]
  • Stingrays goalie Todd Ford's new mask is straight cash, err, Cash. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Finally, happy 35th birthday to Richard Zednik and happy 56th to Alex Forsythe.
