Your savory breakfast links:
- It bobbles AND skates! Our review of this very cool new Alex Ovechkin bobblehead. [Rink]
- Vitek Vanecek has stepped up and filled in admirably... but now that Ilya Samsonov is back, who is the Caps’ starting netminder? [NBCSW]
- Speaking of Vanecek, he chatted about his early days in Charleston, and adjusting to life in North America. [NBCSW]
- Looking at the individual performance of each of the players on the Caps’ blueline, 12 games in. [NoVa Caps]
