Your depressing deep-fried breakfast links:

  • This year’s playoffs have already offered up a cross-section of controversial hits - with consistently inconsistent rulings from George Parros and the DoPS. [Rink]
  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night’s OT loss from us, Vogs, NHL, AP, WaPo, NBCSW, NoVa Caps, RMNB, Sporting News, Dispatch, and The Cannon.
  • Andre Burakovsky left last night’s game early with an upper-body injury and will be reevaluated today. [WaPo]
  • He wasn’t the only one getting hurt; even the officials aren’t safe in this series, as linesman Steve Barton suffered an awkward and very painful-looking knee injury. [USA Today]
  • It just keeps happening. It just.... keeps happening. [PHT, Free Lance-Star]
  • Alex Ovechkin knew after Game 1 that he needed to be better in Game 2; he was, with two of the team’s four goals. [WTOP]
  • Apparently being down 2-0 in the playoffs is contagious, with the Stingrays joining the Caps in lopsided series misery. [Caps Outsider]
  • Old pal Taylor Chorney hasn’t faced his former ‘mates just yet, but he knew his old team and new team were on a collision course. [NBCSW]
  • She had to fend off all the males around her but this little girl - thanks to Good Guy Brett Connolly - finally snagged a dream souvenir. [Caps video]
