Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's win from us, Vogs, Monumental video (Oates, Schmidt, Alzner, Brouwer, Backstrom),, APWaPo, CSNW (gamer, blog), Peerless, Frankovic, RMNB, and from Perdsville, The Tennesseean,  and On the Forecheck.
    • All teh goals!
    • Troy Brouwer can't stop hitting the rewind button on his DVR to see if this goal is really his to keep. [Capitals Voice, RMNB]
    • No doubt on this one. Alex Ovechkin Ovis his way to goal #22 on the year and to within one of tying Peter Bondra's franchise record 137 power play tallies. [CV, PHT, CSNW]
    • He's allowed to do that?  Karl Alzner pots the sixth goal of his career, and first-ever at the Phone Booth.  Perhaps he won't wait another 148 home games to try that again. [CV, RMNB, Caps Outsider]
    • He'll always have Nashville.  Nate Schmidt puts the game out of reach (give-or-take 13 seconds) with his first career goal, and his million-watt smile rivals the National Christmas Tree. [CV, RMNBWaPo, CSNW (video), @WashCaps (pic), @WesJohnsonVoice (pic), @nateschmidt29 (and again)]
    • And Eric Fehr with the dagger. [CV]
    • Rich Clune went to introduce himself to Tom Wilson.  Perhaps Mr. Clune will choose differently next time. [HockeyFights, RMNB, CSNW]
  • Previews of tonight's Metro mashup at Madison Square Garden from Vogs, and Peerless, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partners over at Blueshirt Banter for the other side of tonight's matchup.
  • So, Patrick Wey, how was your Saturday? [Rink, CSNWWaPo@ECHL, @hockey_east, @HockeyPhotos (pic)]
  • Catching up with Matt Hendricks. [WaPo]
  • The Bears continued their season-long pattern of losing the next game after a win... [Patriot-News]
  • ...and the Royals held Yannick Tifu Bobblehead Night but struggled in a 7-2 loss to Fort Wayne, with Brandon Anderson in net for all seven goals against. [Caps Outsider]
