Your savory breakfast links:

  • Caps’ games without Alex Ovechkin don’t happen very often, so the Caps knew they’d have to make adjustments. [WaPo, NoVa Caps]
  • A little over halfway through his first year behind the bench, Todd Reirden is a work in progress. [ESPN]
  • Handing out some midseason grades to the Caps’ special teams. [NBCSW]
  • Evaluating the Caps’ last decade of draft picks. [NoVa Caps]
  • Willie O’Ree (rightfully) gets a lot of attention as the first black player in the NHL; it took 16 years later for Mike Marson to become the second (and the first one drafted). [NHL]
  • Money originally set aside for renovations to DC’s only public ice rink, the venerable Fort Dupont, is being diverted by Mayor Bowser - and a lot of people aren’t happy about it. [DCist]
  • Finally, happy 42nd birthday to Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre and happy 59th to Lee Norwood.
