Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps have not done the best when they’ve had the lead this season. To put it mildly. [Rink]
  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last ni-...nope, there was no game last night. It was postponed, as Travis Sanheim, Claude Giroux and Justin Braun entered COVID protocol. [Rink, Caps, WaPo, NBCSW, PHT, The Score, BR, FLM, NBCSPhilly, BSH]
  • Good news for the Caps: Jakub Vrana was cleared from the NHL’s COVID protocol list. Just in time for... no games. None. [TSN]
  • Prior to Sunday’s game, Peter Laviolette took a moment to salute the perseverance of Philippe Maillet, who made his NHL debut that after at the age of 28. [RDS]
  • Maillet’s debut was required because of yet another absence (two, actually) up front - a trend this year that Lars Eller admits has been tricky to overcome. [NBCSW]
  • Hockey fans everywhere agree that the Caps’ new blue jersey is a stunner, and have made it the top-selling jersey in the NHL. Take that, reverse retro threads. [NBCSW]
  • It’s not Caps-related, but Flyers’ legend Ron Hextall taking over as the Penguins’ GM is high comedy and worthy of a bullet here. [NHL]
  • And in general hockey news, a toast to Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, who announced their retirement yesterday after stellar careers (and an amazing impact on women’s hockey off the ice, as well). [The Ice Garden, ESPN]
  • An awesome oral history of Lamoureux-Davidson’s spectacular shootout-winning goal to capture Olympic gold for Team USA at the 2018 Olympics. Oops, she did it again... [ESPN]
  • Should we watch it one more time? Let’s watch it one more time... and then maybe a few more times after that.
