Saturday Caps Clips: Caps @ Rangers Game Day

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of and thoughts on tonight's rager with the Rangers (potentially the first of eight-straight against New York) from Vogs,, WaPo, RMNB and CRtC, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Blueshirt Banter for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler (and beyond):
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Rinkside Update, Hunter, Wideman, Backstrom, Johansson, Alzner, Aucoin)]
    • "Caps goaltender" is the new "Spial Tap drummer," y'all... [WaPo, AP, FanPost]
    • ... so welcome back, Dany Sabourin (who was recalled back in October, but didn't see any game action)... [WaPo]
    • ... who was recalled in style after dropping a 4-2 decision for the Bears. [Patriot-News]
    • Nicklas Backstrom hasn't impressed Nicklas Backstrom three games into his return. [CSNW]
  • Here we are on the last day of the season and the Division has yet to be decided. That's as bad as it sounds and yet, we'll take it. [WaPo, CSNW]
  • And how'd we get here? []
  • And where are we going? [CSNW (video)]
  • As far as Plan B's go, you could do worse than Braden Holtby (who's actually Plan C). [WaPo, WashTimes, KOL]
  • Holtby is dreaming (and name-checking) big. [CSNW]
  • Karl Alzner and John Carlson, reunited and it feels so good. [WashTimes]
  • Speaking of Alzner, he did his weekly hit on LaVar and Dukes yesterday... [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • ... a few hours after doing Elliot In The Morning. [RMNB]
  • There was a little post-game partying on Thursday night. Crazy kids. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Careful using the f-word to describe the Caps. [HomerMcFanboy]
  • You're welcome. [Ted's Take]
  • I see this picture and regret that I have but one face to palm. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Unfortunately for the Caps, Semyon Varlamov had a decent year and that draft pick they got in return for him looks to be in the 11-14 range (but hey, there's a reason to watch the draft lottery or whatever they're calling it this year). [RMNB]
  • Chiding the B's for not choosing their own adventure. [NEHJ]
  • Do svidaniya, Traktor. [RMNB]
  • Former Cap Frederic Cassivi (we'll always have those 198 minutes!) answers some questions. [Stack the Pads]
  • Ah, memories... it was eight years ago today that fate smiled upon the Caps, as they won the NHL's Draft Lottery, despite having only a 14.2% chance of doing so.
  • Finally, the puck drops at 5:30 on the Judgment Day viewing party at Front Page. See you there? [RMNB]
