Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps of a shootout victory over the 'Canes from us, Vogs, Monumental video (Trotz, locker room),, AP, WaPo, CSNMA (and again), Frankovic, NoVa Caps, RMNB
  • Previews of a visit from the Canadiens from NoVa Caps, FiCP, the Gazette, and be sure to visit our awesome SB Nation pals over at Eyes on the Prize for the other side of tonight's matchup.
  • The original plan was for the Caps to face Al Montoya tonight; instead, they'll have their hands full against what's likely to be a very pissed off Carey Price. Awesome. [Puck Daddy, Gazette, Sportsnet, the Score]
  • The power play is finally heating up, and just in the nick of time. [NoVa Caps]
  • After two games on the sideline, Andre Burakovsky has the chance for a fresh start... and he definitely needs one. [WaPo, CSNMA, RMNB]
  • He's also about to have a bit more competition for a roster spot, with a red-hot Zach Sanford set to return to the club ahead of the holiday roster freeze. [WaPo, CSNMA ,NoVa Caps]
  • Travel delays caused the Caps to get some surprise time off on Wednesday, but they were back on the ice in Raleigh yesterday for morning skate. [Monumental video (Trotz, Beagle), Dump 'n Chase, WaPo]
  • Owner Ted Leonsis has stated that he will let Alex Ovechkin go to the 2018 Olympics whether the League goes or not, and it's exactly the correct view. [Caps Outsider]
  • Ovechkin is must-see hockey for a number of people in this country. [Puck Daddy]
  • Teeny Matt Niskanen and teeny Dmitry Orlov! [CSNMA]
  • Evil was afoot downtown yesterday, putting Slapshot and his other furry and feathered friends in danger... luckily SUPER KAHEEM was there to save the day! [WTOP]
  • Finally, happy 51st birthday to Craig Berube and happy 58th to Dave Poulin.
