NHL: Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Your slumping breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night’s (gulp!) seventh-straight loss from us, Vogs, Caps video (Reirden, locker room), NHL, AP, CP, WaPo, NBCSW, NoVa Caps, RMNB, Toronto Star, Toronto Sun, Globe and Mail, and PPP.
  • Ominous start to that one as Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie collided, eventually sending Ovechkin to the room for concussion testing (which thankfully he passed). [NBCSW, Yahoo! Canada]
  • Congrats to the captain, aka the lone bright spot in this dark time, who scored a goal to draw even with Sergei Fedorov for the most points by a Russian player. [Caps video]
  • The Caps are doomed, I tells ya! DOOOOOOMED. [THN]
  • All the hat tricks. So many hat tricks. [Sporting News]
  • Jeremy Roenick had some harsh words for the Caps... and that was just after the sixth loss! [WaPo]
  • What should the Caps (and the 30 other teams) do at or before the trade deadline? [THN]
  • A few leftovers from that loss to the Sharks. [Caps, RMNB]
  • All the ways the Caps can stop this skid. Maybe they should try, um, winning. [NBCSW]
  • Finally, happy 70th birthday to Guy Charron, happy 46th to Chris and Peter Ferraro, happy 33rd to Jack Hillen, and happy 49th to Jim Mathieson.
