Your savory breakfast links:

  • Off to a 3-1-0 start, the Caps have had more ups than downs, and our Ups and Downs reflect as much (including a real tight race for Player of the Week). [Rink]
  • Previews of tonight's first road game of the season from VogsNHL.comSTATS LLC and Peerless, and check out our SB Nation pals at Matchsticks and Gasoline for the other side of tonight's match-up.
    • Karri Ramo will start in net for the Flames, but Bob Hartley isn't thrilled that neither of his goalies has been particularly good so far. [PHT]
  • Today's must-read: the Caps adding a new wrinkle to their already potent power play gives you the sense of what it must have been like the first time someone added bacon to a cheeseburger. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Another good read - breaking down the Caps' breakout. [RMNB]
  • Even though he's now got his "dream job," Jay Beagle is the hardest-working guy on the squad. [Monumental (video), WaPoCSNMA]
  • Chandler Stephenson was a late cut out of camp, but is back already and hoping to stick. [WaPo]
  • Another player looking to take advantage of his opportunity to play is Taylor Chorney. [WaPo]
  • The Caps are still game-planning for 3-on-3 overtime. Humbly suggested solution: win in regulation. [CSNMA]
  • Brooks Laich has been better than you think so far. No, seriously. [RMNB]
  • One anonymous player called the ice at Verizon Center the League's worst. Wonder if it was a Cap. [Puck Daddy]
  • Here's someone who has the Caps under a "who's looking bad" heading, which is curious. [ESPN]
  • Who do you want centering the top line? Two men enter... only one can skate to the immediate right of Alex Ovechkin. [Along the Boards]
  • The Bears are easing their way into the season. [Patriot-News]
  • Old friend Matt Hendricks won't be playing in Friday night's Caps/Oilers game - he was placed on IR yesterday. [Edmonton Journal]
