Your savory breakfast links:

  • A few more thoughts on Saturday's loss. [Die by the Blade,]
    • Losing to (and scoring just one goal against) a team at the bottom of the standings... yeah, that would qualify as being up there on the "most embarrassing loss" list. [THW]
    • One big reason comes down to an issue that has plagued the team for a while now: the lack of a net presence. [WaPoNBC4]
    • That one goal that went in came off the stick of Matt Niskanen, his first of the season - and he's ready to get a few more. [WaPo]
  • Looking back on the week that was. Get the Pepto ready. [Peerless]
  • And looking back on the first twenty games of the season. [RMNB]
  • Time to panic? IS IT TIME TO PANIC?? [Stars and Sticks]
  • There's still a lot for the Caps to fix, but one good thing to come out of the last few weeks is the fact that Braden Holtby appears to have his "swagger" back. [CSNW]
  • Good timing, too, because up next on the schedule is a home-and-home with the red-hot Islanders. [CSNW]
  • And finally, paying tribute to the first player in franchise history to score at least 60 goals in a season, the great Dennis "Peewee" Maruk. [Monumental videoWashTimes (Loverro)]
