Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's dance with Dallas from Vogs, NHL.com (Rosen), Peerless, SB Nation DC, RtR and CRtC, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner, the excellent Defending Big D, 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, Boudreau, Green), RtR]
    • Mike Green took part in practice, but is questionable for tonight (spoiler alert: he's not going to play). [DCEx (McNally), CW (Whyno), CI (Carrera), CSNW (Gormley)]
    • Cody Eakin is champin' at the bit to get back in the lineup. [CI (Carrera)]
    • So is Jay Beagle, who should skate today. [CI (Carrera), CW (Whyno)]
    • John Carlson on getting rid of the bagel in the goal column and tonight's game. [Capitals Voice]
    • Bruce Boudreau on why the Caps sent D.J. King to Hershey. [CW (Whyno), CI (Carrera)]
  • Everyone gets up to face the Caps - it's up to the Caps to match that on a nightly basis. [Ted's Take]
  • Nicklas Backstrom was named the NHL's third star of the week yesterday... [Caps365 (video), CI (Carrera), CW (Whyno)]
  • ... leading to an always-welcomed round of "Nick Backstrom is awesome" articles and posts. [Dump 'n Chase, WashTimes (Whyno), DCEx (McNally), FanPost]
  • Tomas Vokoun and a half-dozen other Caps were also recognized for their respective performances last week. [PHT, KOL]
  • Regardless of where he's penciled into the lineup, Mike Knuble is a first-line human being. [WaPo (El-Bashir)]
  • Will tonight be a milestone night for John Erskine? [KOL]
  • With King now gone (and Matt Bradley not brought back last summer), the Caps are noticeably less pugilistic, but not necessarily any less tough. [CSNW (Gormley)]
  • Finally, happy 43rd birthday to Keith Jones.
