Your savory breakfast links:

  • Suspension over, Kuznetsov’s return means the Caps need to move some money around - so Martin Fehervary is headed to Hershey, Travis Boyd to waivers. [Caps, WaPo, NBCSW]
  • Fehervary may be getting sent down, but his “demotion” comes after three pretty excellent performances at the NHL level. [RMNB]
  • It’s been three pretty excellent performances for the team overall, as well, with five of six points earned without Kuznetsov and Michal Kempny. Not bad. [NBCSW]
  • A few leftovers from Saturday night’s OT loss to the Canes. [Caps, RMNB, Canes Country, StarsandSticks]
  • One big blemish from that loss? The power play, which was 0-for-6 (including one in overtime) and needs to be fixed to get through a tough month ahead. [NoVa Caps]
  • Caps’ part owner Sheila Johnson has been key in all elements of the upcoming screening of “Willie”, a documentary about Willie O’Ree. [NHL]
