Your savory breakfast of champions links:
- Recaps and other assorted musings on last night’s shutout loss from us, Vogs, Caps video (Reirden, locker room), NHL, AP, WaPo, NBCSW (and again), Frankovic, NoVa Caps (and again), RMNB, NJ.com and All About the Jersey.
- Hmm. “Pavel Zacha went 13-for-15 (!) in the faceoff circle, including 12-for-13 (!!) against Evgeny Kuznetsov.” [@DevilsInsiders]
- And whatever this was:
- Mike Vogel Instagrammed a peek behind the curtain as Alex Ovechkin used his infamous “measure stick” to prep his game sticks ahead of puck drop in Newark. [NoVa Caps]
- Y’know what’s been real nice this season? The fact that the Caps won the thing last season. [CBS Sports, WCP]
- Another nice thing this season - the emergence of Evgeny Kuznetsov as a superstar... [NBCSW (and again), RMNB]
- ... and he is driven by joy, not ambition. [WashTimes, NBCSW (Kuzy mic’d up)]
- Finally, happy 33rd birthday to Mike Green and happy 53rd birthday to Todd Krygier.
