Your savory breakfast links:
- Making a case to keep Daniel Sprong in the lineup... y’know, before he went ahead and made his own case. [Rink]
- Recaps and other assorted musings on last night’s win from us, Vogs, Caps video (Laviolette, Wilson, Vanecek, recap), Islanders, NHL, AP, Reuters, WaPo, NBCSW (and again), Newsday, SNY, Peerless, NoVa Caps, RMNB, and LHH.
- It’s not often that the captain misses a game (let alone two or three), and his ‘mates feel weird when Ovechkin is not in the lineup. [NBCSW]
- The East Division isn’t the only one with tight playoff races - things are crazypants around the NHL. [NoVa Caps]
- Finally, happy 56th birthday to Mike Millar, happy 55th to Ken Sabourin, and happy 57th to Brad Shaw.
