Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's loss from us, Vogs (plus game notes), Monumental video (Trotz, Holtby, Orpik, Wilson, Ovechkin, Johansson, Vigneault, Rangers room),, WaPo (gamer, blog, blog, Bog's Best & Worst, photos), CSNW (gamer, blog), WashTimes, Puck Daddy, SB Nation, PHT, APFrankovic, RMNB (gamer, game blogs) and DSP and from the NYR bench, BSB, doinow, Ranger Rants, Newsday, NY Post.
    • Game Seven (sigh) is scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30pm. []
    • Once again facing the abyss. [WaPo]
    • 'Twas a lack of urgency. [WashTimes]
    • "The Caps obviously have some talent on the roster. But there’s not enough to outplay similarly skilled teams, they have to outwork them as well." [DSP]
    • But fear not; the Captain has a guarantee. [SB Nation, CSNW, PHT, RMNB, NYPost]
    • As does Evgeny Kuznetsov. [Puck Daddy, PHT]
    • The team had a strong finish after a bad start, so there's that. []
    • Confidence is grand, but the actual results say otherwise. [NYDN]
    • In what may have been his last #Caps game in DC, Mike Green didn't take a shift in final 2:45, including full PP (6-on-4 with Holtby pulled.) [@BenRaby31]
  • Notes from the New York end of the ice:
    • The Rangers' stars stepped up. [ESPN]
    • Kreider, Kreider, Kreider! [WaPoNYDN]
    • Good news - Ryan McDonagh is fine after his encounter with Alex Ovechkin . []
    • So, uh, Rangers, don't get too complacent after this win. []
  • The Hershey Bears defeated the Hartford Wolf Pack 2-1 to go up two games to one in their second round series. Nate Schmidt had the first goal and Cameron Schilling went shorthanded for the other. They will play Game Four tonight at 7pm. [Patriot-News]
  • The South Carolina Stingrays were unable to close out their series with the Florida Everblades at home, so they return to Germain Arena with a 3-2 series lead in the East Division Finals. One win in their next two tries and they will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. []
  • One more game of note: The Kelowna Rockets are up two games to none versus the Brandon Wheat Kings for the WHL Championship. They won the first two games on the road and the series comes to Kelowna's home barn tonight at 10pm Eastern. [WHL (video)]
  • Finally, happy 46th birthday to Todd Nelson, and happy 47th birthday to Per Djoos, former Red Wing/Ranger and the father of Caps prospect defenseman Christian Djoos.
