Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's party with Pittsburgh from Vogs, NHL.com, Peerless, SB Nation DC, RMNB, Sick Unbelievable, RtR and CRtC, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner PensBurgh for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up (and a traffic advisory for those of you going to the game).
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Kettler Report, Hunter)]
    • Welcome back to Caps/Pens and the Sid Show, Dale. [WaPo, WashTimes, WTOP]
    • And welcome back to D.C., Jim Johnson. [Caps365 (video), WashTimes, DCEx, KOL, CSNW]
    • Meanwhile, there's a lot of learnin' to be done and little practice time in which to do it. [NHL.com, Dump 'n Chase]
    • So... if you've got the shot, do you take it? [WashTimes, WaPo, CSNW]
    • There's no timetable as to when Mike Green might return to the lineup... [WaPo]
    • ... but the two-time Norris Trophy finalist who may very well owe more to his now-former coach than anyone else on the team did speak about the coaching change. [NHL.com, DCEx, 106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Here's today's must-read, on the captain. [National Post]
  • After what was perhaps a personal record two days of silence (so as not to take away from Hunter's life-changing couple of days), Bruce Boudreau spoke to several media outlets on Wednesday:
  • Olie Kolzig gives his two cents. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Is George McPhee now in the on-deck circle? [DCEx]
  • While Bob Woods was dismissed in favor of Jim Johnson, Dean Evason will stay on Coach Hunter's staff. [WaPo]
  • Of course, Evason and Hunter haven't always seen eye-to-eye. [Japers' Rink]
  • Brooks Laich did his weekly radio hit on The Junkies. [106.7 The Fan]
  • ESPN's Scott Burnside on Alex Ovechkin and what's-his-name. [CSNW (video)]
  • Now is not the time to panic. [Cakes' Takes]
  • There's plenty of blame to go around for how things have gone down recently. [OFB]
  • Should Dmitry Orlov start looking to buy rather than rent? [Sick, Unbelievable]
  • Some day we'll find it, the Boudreau-Michel Therrien connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me. [KOL]
  • The Caps are the NHL's 12th most valuable team. [Forbes, which is most likely wrong, and even if they're close, it's not so much #8 that's increasing the Caps' value, it's owning the building]
  • I'm not ordinarily a fan of telling fans how to be fans... but there are a couple of ideas here I could get behind. [RMNB]
  • The new boss gets some love... in Parliament? [DC Sports Bog]
  • Finally, the two tributes to the Caps' new bench boss that ran in-game on Tuesday night. [Caps365 video (first, second)]
