Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's season-ending overtime loss from us, Vogs (plus game notes), Monumental video (Trotz, Holtby, Ward, Fehr, Brouwer, Ovechkin, Alzner, Vigneault, Rangers room), NHL.com, WaPo (gamer, blog, Bog's Best & Worst, photos), CSNW (gamer, blog), WashTimes, Puck Daddy (and again), SB Nation, PHT, ESPN, AP, Frankovic, RMNB (gamer, game blogs) and DSP and from the NYR bench, BSB, Lohud, NJ.com.
    • "Defeat is not your undertaker," and more from Barry Trotz. [PHT]
    • "There's no regrets in this room," and more from Braden Holtby. [RMNB, CSNW]
    • "We deserve a better result," and more from Alex Ovechkin. [PHT]
    • This time, there is no one to blame. [CSNW]
    • Holtby/Lundqvist moves to Number Eight on the all-time playoff goalie duel list. [538]
    • From Elias: The Rangers overcame a three-games-to-one deficit to win the series, but the Blueshirts' victories in Games Five, Six and Seven would not have been possible if Chris Kreider had not tied the score for the Rangers at 1-1 with 1:41 left to play in regulation time in Game Five. The only other NHL team to win Game Seven of a playoff series after trailing in the last two minutes of the third period in a potential elimination game earlier in the series was the Penguins against the Sabres in 2001. Down three-games-to-two, Mario Lemieux tied Game Six at 18:42 of the third period and Pittsburgh won in overtime to deadlock the series, with the Penguins prevailing in OT in Game Seven as well.

  • The top (or is it bottom) five most disappointing players in this year's playoffs... [THW]
