Friday Caps Clips: Habs @ Caps Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews (and such) of tonight's mega-tilt with Montreal from Vogs,, WaPo, SB Nation DC, Peerless, RMNB and CRtC, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Habs Eyes On The Prize for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
    • Oh yeah, Rene Bourque's in town. [RMNB]
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice out at Kettler:
  • Buy or sell? Sell or buy? Rent? Rent-to-own? Layaway? [WashTimes]
  • Slow starts (among many other things, of course) are killing the Caps. [WaPo]
  • Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick discuss the Caps' leadership and chemistry (or, more accurately, their lack thereof). [PHT]
  • So how's the 10-point rebuilding plan looking these days? [Homer McFanboy]
  • Remember all that "regular season doesn't matter" stuff? Yeah, not so much. [DSP]
  • Today in grave-dancing. [WaPo, National Post, National Post, SB Nation]
  • Mathieu Perreault's face-goal goes national. [WTOP]
  • "Quite simply, for a team to be a top team their best players must be their best players. Washington’s best players have underachieved. In some cases this is due to injury, but none of their five star players have lived up to expectation." [TPSH]
  • I could be mean and tease this link with "Nicklas Backstrom played some hockey yesterday," but I won't. Unless I just did. [Caps365 (video), DSP]
  • Here's another twig for the "Brooks Laich should be the captain - he's clearly a leader!" fire. [Chirps]
  • Also, if you want to grab some Spicy Double Tuna Tempura rolls with the man himself, read this and stalk away. [Capitals Voice]
  • Oh, and what do you get when you cross Laich with Alex Semin? An elite scorer with heart... or this. [Sick, Unbelievable]
  • Toss one in the "L" column for the Bears. [Patriot-News]
  • Some tidbits on Evgeny Kuznetsov's KHL contract negotiations. (Pass the salt - we need a few grains.) [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Finally, happy 54th birthday to Tim Coulis.
