Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps have (or had) interest in Evander Kane. What does that mean? [Rink]
  • Sunday's loss to the Flyers was a big fat "down," but a 3-1-0 week had its fair share of "ups" as well. [Rink]
  • But yeah, the Caps will win four in a row one of these days (we hope). [NBC4]
  • News and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Monumental video (TrotzHoltby)]
    • Practice? That's been a rarity lately. [WaPoWashTimes]
    • Evgeny Kuznetsov is coming along nicely. [Dump 'n Chase]
    • Cameron Schilling was returned to Hershey yesterday, but someone will be coming the other way as the Caps will head out west with seven blueliners. [Patriot-News]
    • As we noted in this week's Ups and Downs, the line of Brooks Laich, Eric Fehr and Joel Ward has struggled to put biscuits in the basket. But they're workin' on changing that. [WaPo]
    • Matt Niskanen did Scott Laughton a solid... and beat him solidly. [CSNW]
  • Getting ready for the roadie. [CSNW (video)]
  • Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom are like peas and carrots... in the most awesome vegetable medley anyone's ever tasted. [Sportsnet]
  • Hockey teams ranked according to power. [THNESPN]
  • Ann Schaab and her boyfriend of 90 weeks spent some time together yesterday. [OTR (video), NHL.comNBC4Puck DaddyRMNB]

  • Sorry, Leafs, Barry's gonna be here for a while. [TSN]
  • "It was one where he just went to hit Ovechkin and dragged his foot there, and obviously hurt his abdominal to the area where he’s going to need the surgery." Blues GM Doug Armstrong provides few details prior to Kevin Shattenkirk's abdominal surgery. [STL Today]
  • You're interested in the Bears' three stars of the week, but that lead image is... something. [Patriot-News]
  • Speaking of Hershey, might they be seeing Justin Peters and Aaron Volpatti soon? [Patriot-News]
  • Remembering the 1995 draft two decades later... a draft the Caps would rather forget. [Greatest Hockey Legends]
