Your savory breakfast of champions links:
- Previews of this afternoon’s rumble with the Desert Dogs from Vogs (plus game notes), NHL, AP, Peerless and NoVa Caps and be sure to visit with our SB Nation buddies at Five for Howling.
- Fifteen games into the season, is it time to separate Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov? Their line isn’t working all that well, no matter who they have at right wing... [RMNB]
- ... and based on Saturday’s practice lines, we could be seeing a Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - T.J. Oshie monster line. [NBCSW]
- In other practice news, John Carlson returned to the ice, and is perhaps “possible” for today. [WaPo]
- But hey, Jonas Siegenthaler looked pretty good Friday night. [NBCSW]
- Penalty kill. Penalty kill. Penalty kill. [NBCSW]
- Aw, these pics from the Caps’ Make-a-Wish Kids Skate are just the sweetest. [Caps Outsider, RMNB]
- Finally, happy 64th birthday to Michel Bergeron and happy 46th to Steve Konowalchuk.
