Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of Part One of a two-game set with New Jersey from Vogs, Dump 'N Chase, NHL.com (Rosen), Peerless, Frankovic, RMNB and RtR, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner, In Lou We Trust, for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Kettler Report, BoudreauOvechkin, Green), RtR]
    • Mike Green took part in practice, but is still questionable for this weekend.  [DCEx (McNally), CW (Whyno, and again), CI (Carrera), CSNW (Gormley), SB Nation DC]
    • Marcus Johansson had the day off for maintenance and Coach hints at a new role for him. [CI (Carrera, and again), CW (Whyno), CSNW (Gormley, and again), PHT]
    • Alexander Semin held a post-practice mini-presser, and shared his thoughts on accountability, refereeing, and his lack of scoring. With bonus Alex Ovechkin cameo. [WashTimes (Whyno, and again), SB Nation DC (Vingan), CI (Carrera), CSNW (Gormley), RMNB (video)]
    • Joel Ward looks forward to New Jersey, and really looks forward to Nashville, just over the horizon. [Capitals Voice]
  • Who was the only plus player in that 5-2 loss to the Stars? Cody Eakin, that's who. [Update: Err, other than Alex Semin, Whyno.] And by the way, he can barely remember the specifics of his first NHL goal. Uh-huh. [DCEx (McNally), CW (Whyno)]
  • What's up with all the recent penalties? Might rhyme with "groove bore sheet." [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • The case for scratching Roman Hamrlik. [KOL]
  • Jeff Halpern spent some time with Elliot. Y'know, in the Morning. [DC 101 via YouTube]
  • Halpy remembers the Accountability Skate well. You will too, after reading this. [SB Nation DC (Vingan)]
  • Where things stand, one month in. [Sick, Unbelievable]
  • Hockey 'n Heels, in pictures. Aw, yeah. [Blonde Girl's Guide]
  • At long last the HBO 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: The Road to the NHL Winter Classic DVD is ready for release. Find out where to get an extra special copy. [News from the Nosebleeds]
  • Tomas Vokoun, Nicklas Backstrom and the rest of the Young Guns are your 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game Caps ballotees. Vote early and often. [NHL.com (story, ballot)]
  • Courage Caps return. On this and every day, we thank all who have served and are serving in the armed forces, standing watch all 'round the world. Salute. [Capitals]
  • Seriously? [PHT]
  • Finally, happy 39th birthday to Steve Konowalchuk, whose Seattle Thunderbirds currently stand 4th in the US Division of the Western Hockey League.
