Your savory breakfast links:

  • First things first... congratulations to the Washington Nationals on bringing yet another championship to the District!!
  • The Caps enjoyed the game together at their team Halloween party last night, and celebrated victory in their typically understated way:
  • Thankfully they weren’t too busy to extend congratulations, and some crucial advice, to the newly crowned World Series champions:
  • Last night was one of a handful of memorable - in a good way - Game 7 performances in DC sports. [WUSA9]
  • Three titles in two years. Yup, ding dong the DC sports curse is dead! And good riddance. [Yahoo!]
  • Plenty of good Caps bits in another edition of the always awesome 31 Thoughts. [Sportsnet]
  • Thanks to a 4-0-1 road swing, the Caps climb the ladder again in this week’s Super 16. [NHL]
  • October was a pretty great month for the Caps, as they finished with a 9-2-3 record. [NoVa Caps, Frankovic]
  • It turned out to be a pretty great month for John Carlson, too. #Johnny4Norris [CP, TSN]
  • Add 2019 draftee Connor McMichael to the list of people probably sad to see October go. [NoVa Caps]
  • Even when he keeps his nose clean, all of Tom Wilson’s hits will continue to be scrutinized - and that’s the bed he’s made, unfortunately. [THN]
  • A few leftovers from Tuesday night’s overtime win. [Caps, RMNB, StarsandSticks, THW]
  • The Caps’ defensive depth is such that prospect Lucas Johansen knows that his best shot at the NHL may have to be with another team. [NBCSW]
  • Thoughts on Kuznetsov’s season so far and more in the latest Mailbag. [NBCSW]
  • Finally, happy 64th birthday to Claude Noel, happy 47th to Mel Angelstad, and happy 36th to Steve Eminger.
