Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's stand-off with the Sens from Vogs, NHL.com, Peerless, SB Nation DC and RMNB, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Silver Seven for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Kettler Report, Hunter), 106.7 The Fan (audio)]
    • Mike Knuble is movin' on up to the east side (of Marcus Johansson, if the Caps are skating south-to-north), to a deluxe assignment on the second line. [WaPo,]
    • Roman Hamrlik is day-to-day with a lower-body injury (and no, it's probably not pylonitis). [WashTimes, DCEx]
  • There will be no supplemental discipline for John Carlson following his questionable hit on Matt Cooke in the waning moments of Thursday night's game. [Puck Daddy, WaPo, PHT, Empty Netters, PensBurgh]
  • The Caps have a fever, and the only cure is more goals. [WashTimes, CSNW]
  • Alex Ovechkin says all the right things in this must-read interview with Dmitry Chesnokov. [Puck Daddy]
  • Dale Hunter should be more like Barry Trotz. Okaaay... [PHT]
  • ... because they're not having any fun. [BS]
  • Or maybe Huntsy should just unleash the fury, err, offense... [BS]
  • But that's not likely, so it's good that the team's buying what Dale's currently selling... [KOL]
  • Especially John Erskine. [WaPo]
  • Some thoughts on whether the Caps picked the right guy for the job. [CSNW (video), with some related thoughts at WaPo]
  • Hunter certainly has his hands full. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Joe B. on the coaching change. [E.Y.E.S. Radio Network]
  • Two of the 107 players in NHL history whose surname starts with "O" are currently roomies. [CSNW]
  • Ho Ho Hovechkin. [Caps365 (video), DSP]
  • Nicklas Blackstrom, you've got company. [Peter Blogdra]
  • Congrats to Philipp Grubauer, the ECHL's Goalie of the Month after a 6-1-1/1.73/.935 November. [Stingrays, ECHL]
  • I'd have expected to be reading Brett Leonhardt in the Wall Street Journal giving his thoughts on the European debt crisis, but seeing him talk about his experience as an NHLer is interesting too, I suppose. [WSJ]
  • Finally, congrats to a couple of former Caps - Milan Novy and Phil Housley - on their election to the IIHF Hall of Fame. [NHL.com]
