Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night’s loss from us, Vogs, Caps video (recap), NHL, AP, WaPo, NBCSW, FiCP, RMNB, NoVa Caps (and again), SinBin.vegas, LVRJ, and Knights on Ice.
  • It was another costly loss for the Caps, this time with Tom Wilson leaving the game early after a blindside hit by Ryan Reaves. [NBCSW, RMNB, NoVa Caps, PHT, The Score]
  • The Caps made their return to Vegas the same way they left it - red-hot, confident, and filled with good memories. [WaPo (and again), NHL]
  • One of the best memories was The Save in Game 2; reflect back on its magic with an oral history of that moment in time. [The Athletic ($)]
  • As the Caps prepared to take on the most recent expansion team, the League’s Board of Governors voted unanimously to add another: Welcome to the NHL, Seattle! [NHL (and again)]
  • Washington State native T.J. Oshie is looking forward to seeing NHL hockey in his home state, where a lot of his family still lives. [NHL]
  • The expansion rules for Seattle will be the same as those for Vegas... in other words, we all get to pretend we understand what they are once again. [NHL, NBCSW]
  • Incredibly their inaugural season appears to be scheduled around another lockout looming for 2020-21. [THN]
  • At one point in his career it seemed impossible to contemplate... but could Alex Ovechkin actually catch Wayne Gretzky’s all-time mark of 894 goals? [WaPo]
