Your savory breakfast links:

  • Z marks the spot as the Capitals' 4-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators brought them to 109 points on the season and secured both the Metropolitan Division championship and the Eastern Conference regular season title. They are assured of at least two new banners in the Verizon Center rafters and home ice through the first three rounds of the playoffs.
  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's win from us, Vogs, Monumental video (Trotz, Holtby, Ovechkin, Richards),, AP, WaPo, CSNMA (gamer, rewind), DSP, Frankovic, S&S, NoVa Caps, and RMNB, and from the visitors' bench, Ottawa Sun and Silver Seven.
  • Hashtag Intensity:
    • Kevin Klein did some digging into the numbers behind the Caps' recent lackluster play, and then he went on CapsTalk with John Walton to talk about it. [Rink, Rink on the Radio]
    • Nice win, Caps, but about that "urgency" thing... [Puck Daddy]
    • The Caps have a fever, and the only prescription is more curling. [ESPN]
    • The struggle for motivation. [RMNB]
    • One to stay motivated - challenge your team to never lose two games in a row. [CSNMA]
  • An up-and-down week is reflected in up-and-down Ups and Downs. [Rink]
  • Lies, damn lies, and Jason Rogers' Weekly Preview. [Rink]
  • Surprise! Evgeny Kuznetsov is a fantasy stud. [TSS]
  • Finally, happy 40th birthday to Nolan Baumgartner, happy 58th to Bengt Gustafsson, and happy 28th to Michal Neuvirth.
