Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps of yesterday's regulation loss from us, Vogs, Monumental video (Trotz, Richards, Grubi, Alzner), NHL.com, WaPo, CSNMA (gamer, rewind), AP, DSP, Stars and Sticks, NVC and RMNB, and from the Sabres' champagne-soaked dressing room, Buffalo News, WGR550 and Die by the Blade.
    • Braden Holtby had a pretty forgettable night - which is why everyone's writing about it. [THN, theScore]
    • Mike Richards had a solid season debut, per Coach Trotz. [WaPo]
    • Sabres goalie Chad Johnson had this observation postgame: "You can see Alex Ovechkin gets frustrated with [Rasmus Ristolainen]. He was doing a good job...Risto's been really good on him, I think all three games we've played [Washington] now. He's so young too. To see the ability he has defensively is impressive. He was good tonight." [WGR550]
  • Previews of this evening's battle with the Blueshirts from Vogs (plus game notes), Peerless, and NHL.com, and check out our SB Nation pals at Blueshirt Banter for the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Finally, the Russian hockey press is all atwitter with the news of Ovi's new golden hockey stick. Pavel Lysenkov posts this great interview with Papa Ovechkin, who was quite impressed with the ceremony, would have liked some time with a microphone to express his wishes for peace among the hockey nations, hinted at a contract extension for the Gr8, and discussed how he would arrange to get the stick back to Russia - via diplomatic courier.
