Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from us, Vogs, Monumental video (Oates, Holtby, Ovechkin, Laich, Brouwer), Capitals Voice call (Ward goal),, WaPo, Peerless, PHT, F Street Faithful, RMNB.
    • Alex Ovechkin offered an in-game demonstration of The Great Gate Caper. We'd recommend Pictionary, or charades, next time. [WaPo, RMNB]
    • This guy takes Movember VERY seriously. [Rink, RMNB]
  • Your Capitals Minute for today. [Capitals Voice]
  • News and notes from yesterday's pregame hours:
  • The Week That Was, Volume Six. [Peerless, RMNB, and Canes Country takes a look at a muddle of middlin' in the Metropolitan]
  • The Caps join some elite company among teams that did rebuilding right. Yes, but. []
  • Winning streak, schminning streak... [WashTimes]
  • ...and the Avs are now 7-1 against Eastern teams. Whatevs. [Denver Post (Dater advisory)]
  • We'll always have special teams. Right? [PHT]
  • Dear Gary Bettman: Go, Flyerz. [Puck Daddy]
  • Hershey's Sunday shootout loss to Binghamton was notable for a right leg injury that took Tomas Kundratek out of the game, and a vicious slash to (acquired for Mathieu Perreault) John Mitchell, who ultimately tied the game with a shorty. [Patriot-News (and again), SHoE (and don't miss the specialty unis)]
  • It's the not-creepy-at-all-no-way-no-how hockey-player-printed blanket ... with sleeves. [Caps Outsider]
  • Happy 41st birthday to Steve Konowalchuk.
  • Finally, on this and every day, we thank all who have served and are serving in the armed forces, standing watch all 'round the world. Salute.
