Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Recaps of the Caps' comeback shootout win over the Wild and more

Rob Carr

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's shootout win from us (with quotes and the night in GIFs), Vogs, Monumental video (Oates, Backstrom, Holtby, Laich, Ward, Yeo, Wild players), Capitals Voice calls (Ovechkin, Johansson, Backstrom/Holtby),, WaPo, CSNW (and again), Frankovic, Peerless, DSP, RtR, F Street Faithful, Caps Outsider and RMNB.
    • From Elias: "Marcus Johansson recorded one goal and one assist in the Capitals' shootout win against the Wild on Thursday, after posting identical totals in Washington's victory over the Islanders on Tuesday. This is only the third time that Johansson has scored goals in two consecutive games in his four seasons in the NHL. He had two-game goal-scoring streaks in October 2011 and March 2013."
