Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps beat down a couple of beat-down teams and lost to a pretty good Minny club last week - what do the Ups and Downs say? [Rink]
  • With a couple of days off, the Caps will look to weaponize rest. [WaPoCSNW]
  • Related? With Daylight Savings Time upon us, maybe the Caps' will spring forward their play to second-period levels from the opening draw. [Rink]
  • Alex Ovechkin is no longer leading the League in points... just in the ones that really measure goal creation. [Rink]
  • Speaking of Ovi, now that he's (yet again) a Hart candidate, I guess it's safe for national Canadian writers to write what we've known all along - that minus-35 last season wasn't (entirely) on him. [Sportsnet]
  • New guy Curtis Glencross is off to a nice start in Caps red. [WaPo]
  • Jay Beagle has ten goals. Never thought we'd write that, but here we are. [WaPo]
  • Hershey bench boss Troy Mann wasn't all that impressed with Andre Burakovsky's game the other night. [Patriot-News (with more on that and other topics here), CSNW]
  • Stanislav Galiev was the best of the Bears last week (and oh, by the way, he has 40 points (22 goals) in his last 41 AHL games). [Patriot-News]
  • Joé Juneau is a top-40 Cap of all-time and maybe even higher in a ranking of hockey people. [Monumental (video)]
  • And speaking of rankings, here are some of the power variety. [ESPN]
  • Goodbye and godspeed, Adam Vingan... [Capitals VoiceCaps Outsider]
  • ... and welcome home, BMan! [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 41st birthday to Martin Brochu and happy 35th to Stephen Peat.
