Your savory breakfast links:

  • Line shuffling, a must-win situation for Carolina and special teams that aren’t so much - three things on our mind yesterday. [Rink]
  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night’s loss from us, Vogs, Caps video (Reirden, locker room, recap), NHL, AP, WaPo, NBCSW, WashTimes, News & Observer, Frankovic, Peerless, NoVa Caps (and again), RMNB, and Canes Country.
  • The Caps didn’t just lose the game; they also lost T.J. Oshie - for “quite some time” - after a hit by Warren Foegele that no one on the Caps’ side liked. [NHL, WaPo, WashTimes, NBCSW (and again), Yahoo, The Score, PHT]
  • Rod Brind’Amour just always seems to be wrong, doesn’t he? [NBCSW]
  • So far the Caps are looking more like the pre-Cup run Caps, prone to tightness and a lack of urgency. That needs to change. [WaPo]
  • The ‘Canes are starting to believe they can knock off the Caps. That needs to change, too. [NHL, News & Observer]
  • After using Christian Djoos for the first three games, Jonas Siegenthaler made his playoff debut in Game 4. [NBCSW, WashTimes]
  • As much as momentum is a thing that exists in the playoffs (which... questionable), any the Caps had built up through the first two games is gone. [News & Observer]
  • Luck never seems as prevalent as it does during the postseason - so how can it be measured? [NoVa Caps]
