Bruce Bennett

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of Game 6 at the Garden from Vogs,, WaPo, CSNW, WashTimes, Peerless, SB Nation and RtR, and be sure to visit our pals at Blueshirt Banter for the other side of this evening's match-up.
  • Checking in with the Caps as they try to snap the series' string of home-team wins:
  • Ranger stuff:
    • Don't expect to see Ryane Clowe, Marc Staal and Darroll Powe on the ice tonight, as the Rangers go to a strict "polysyllabic last names-preferred" lineup. []
    • But do expect the Rangers to forecheck and try to have some fun (which, I'm sure is totally easy playing in an elimination game for John Tortorella). [Ranger Rants]
    • Things are getting Nashty in N.Y. as they start to round up scapegoats. [BSB, and with more on how the Caps have stifled #61 (no, not Steve Oleksy), head over to NBC4]
  • Some tasty Game 5 leftovers (they're fine cold, no need to reheat 'em). [us (and pics!), CSNW, NBC4, RMNB (and again), Peerless, Caps Basketball, Ranger Rants]
  • Oh, and here's me talking on the radio about the game. [ESPN 980 (audio)]
  • Twenty Caps prospects, presented in an orderly fashion. [HF]
  • Here's another way (or three) to get your daily dose of Caps linkage. [Caps Outsider]
  • Smokin' Al Koken is just the best. [WaPo]
  • Looking back at the Bears' season. [Caps Outsider]
  • The Reading Royals have won the ECHL's Eastern Conference. Good job, boys! [Caps Outsider]
  • Happy 54th birthday to Dave Christian.
  • Seriously, we raised more beardcash on Thursday and Friday than on any day yet and the Caps won Game 5. If you want to bump up their odds of winning Game 6 tonight, throw some cheddar at the fuzzy. [Beard-A-Thon, and a very sincere thanks to everyone who has given already]
  • Finally, happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there. You are the best!
