Tuesday Caps Clips: Flyers @ Caps Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's festivities with Philly from Vogs,, DCEx, CSN Philly, Peerless, CRtC and RMNB, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Broad Street Hockey for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice:
  • In case you missed it, John Carlson was named the League's Third Star of the week for his efforts over the past three games... [WaPo and DCEx, Fantasy Hockey Scouts with the poolie's take, and Power Scout Hockey with an interesting look at Carlson's last ten games]
  • ... and gave a call in to NHL Live. [RMNB]
  • Dennis Wideman has had his ups and downs this year, but the Caps would be in a spot without him. [WashTimes]
  • Speaking of Wideman, let's keep that power play a-rollin', shall we? [WaPo]
  • There's been no bigger surprise (well, "good" surprise, at least) for the Caps so far this year than Jason Chimera. [WaPo]
  • Brooks Laich has nothing but kind words for Bruce Boudreau... but sure sounds excited about what Dale Hunter brings to the table. [Elliot in the Morning, via DC Sports Bog and RMNB]
  • And speaking of Laich, here's your chance to sleep with him, ladies (or men... whatever). [DC Sports Bog]
  • Sometimes a team just needs to hear it - whatever "it" is - from someone new. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Confident Caps are better Caps. [Sick, Unbelievable]
  • Welcome back, Jaromir Jagr. [WashTimes, CSNW, RMNB]
  • Eric Brewer having a better season than Karl Alzner from a purely defensive perspective? Time to tweak the formula. [Hockey Independent]
  • Alex Ovechkin may not be inspiring hockey pundits the way he once was, but it's important to remember that he's still an inspiration to some people who matter even more. [KBOI]
  • Mike Knuble, like so many of us, is looking forward to watching 24/7. [CSNW]
  • Mr. Irrelevant Night for Caps/Sabres later this month? Sounds like a blast. [Mr. Irrelevant]
  • Rawr! Lions r scary. But little kids (including those in the familiar red sweaters) skating at the National Zoo r always cute. [Capitals]
  • Finally, happy 26th birthday to Andrew Gordon, happy 36th to Bates Battaglia, happy 42nd to Sergei Fedorov, and happy 78th to Doug Mohns. (P.S. Happy birthday to our pal Paul Rovnak.)
