Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Previews of Caps/Kings, the latest on Grabo and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Previews of tonight's rapid rematch with the Kings from, Peerless and Talk the Red, and be sure to check out our SB Nation pals over at Jewels From The Crown and buds at Battle of Cali (and really, California, thanks for your generous hospitality last week) 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, Alzner, Beagle, Rinkside Update (Brown), Pressbox D.C.]
    • Mikhail Grabovski appears to be inching closer to a return (and not just because time only moves in one direction, inevitably carrying us all towards whatever it is that lies ahead). [Monumental (video), WaPo, CSNW, NBC4, RMNB]
    • The Caps are getting less from Alex Ovechkin and winning more games. (Related: sentient life forms can distinguish between correlation and causation.) [CSNW]
    • Resisting the urge to make a Beagle joke, we'll just note that there was a dog on the Caps' plane. [CSNW]
  • In a week that was very much "up," who carried the Caps and who needs to turn it up a notch? [Rink]
  • The Caps need more offense at even-strength from their top-six forwards. And by "more," we mean "some." [WaPo]
  • Remember when Evgeny Kuznetsov wasn't going to save the Caps' season and that was okay? Well, what if he does? [WashTimes]
  • Careful, Caps - you don't want to end up like the Maple Leafs. [CSNW]
  • The Caps are on the outside looking in... for now. [ESPN ($)]
  • A disappointing weekend with good goaltending leads to a fairly predictable three stars for the Bears' week. [Patriot-News]
  • How to love two teams and feel no shame about it. [Caps Outsider]
  • John Carlson has gone and gotten himself engaged (no word as to whether or not Karl Alzner was there to his left in case something went wrong). Mazel Tov! [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 41st birthday to Andrei Nikolishin, happy 58th to Dwight Schofield and happy 59th to Ted Bulley.
