Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from us (with quotes), Vogs, Monumental video (Oates, Ovechkin, Laich, Brouwer, Backstrom),, WaPo (gamer, blog), CSNW (and again and again), Frankovic, RMNB (and again) and DSP.
    • Bench-check-dot-gif. [RMNB]
    • The Captain was so close to tying the game late. Alas. [RMNB]
  • News and notes from yesterday's pre-game goings-on:
  • A look back at a week that was up (offense) and down (defense and goaltending). [Rink]
  • History will be made. (Maybe.) [WaPo]
  • The Caps have been scoring in bunches this season, which is... something, but we're not sure exactly what. [Rink]
  • Michael Phelps was at the game the other night and got a customized Caps jersey, and hopefully that's the last Baltimore-related Caps note in today's Clips. [WaPo]
  • Oh, but it's not. Could the Caps "host" a Winter Classic in Charm City? Please no. Please. No. [Puck Daddy]
  • Awwwww. [RMNB]
  • The Bears raised a lot of money auctioning off horrible-but-fun Christmas sweaters (with someone dropping more than a grand on... Joel Rechlicz's?!). Everybody wins! [SHoE, Patriot-News]
  • Finally, speaking of ugly sweater auctions, remember those beauts from the Caps' Christmas video? Ah-yup. [RMNB, Caps Outsider]
  • But really finally, 'twas the game before Christmas... [Caps Outsider]
