Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's chance to buffalo Buffalo in Buffalo from Vogs,, WaPo, Express and Peerless, and be sure to check out our SB Nation pals over at Die By The Blade for the other side of tonight's matchup.
  • Your Capitals Minute for today. [Capitals Voice]
  • News and notes from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Monumental video (Oates, Holtby, Fehr, Chimera, Rinkside Update (Beagle))]
    • Uh oh - Grabo's a no-go in B-Lo. [WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW]
    • But at least there's the "pretty dominant" line of Jason Chimera, Jay Beagle and Tom Wilson to pick up the slack. [WaPo, CSNW]
    • The Caps are taking a patient approach with their baby blueliners. [CSNW]
  • A look back at a last week's Ups (the goalies and depth players) and Downs (the dudes who get paid to score). [Rink]
  • The Caps' slide has been all about lousy special teams, no matter what you might hear about mental lapses at five-a-side. [Laich the Lamp]
  • Seven-game losing streak now in the books, the Caps know that if they stumble again, they're likely cooked... [CSNW]
  • ... but they're not done quite yet. [CSNW]
  • Great piece on the recently concluded dads/mentors/brothers trip, including photos aplenty. [WaPo]
  • Today in non-hockey Alex Ovechkin stuff features a birthday dinner for his bride-to-be and... the Grape 8? [DC Sports Bog and again]
  • Unfazed by his return to Hershey, Philipp Grubauer was the team's number one star of the week, stopping 56 of 57 shots in two wins. Not bad. [Patriot-News]
  • The Bears' surprisingly inoffensive Olympic-themed sweaters raised more than $35k for charity, with Steve Oleksy leading the way. [Patriot-News, Bears in Pictures (pics)]
  • Something about Evgeny Kuznetsov and his visa or something. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 65th birthday to Jack Egers and happy 48th birthday to Michal Pivonka
