Bruins at Predators Period 1A

The Bruins (31-20-6, 68) continue their roadtrip at Bridgestone Arena against the Nashville Predators (26-21-10, 62) tonight. The Bruins are still 3rd in the Atlantic while the Predators are struggling at 5th in the highly competitive Central Division.

But that’s not what I want to talk about. I would rather that we focus on…the points leaders for each team. Of course, Perfect Patrice leads all Bruins players with 48 points. On the opposing side we have Roman Josi leading all Preds players with 42 points. Not bad for a defenseman.

 

No, not bad at all.

It’s National Drink Wine Day. Hope you have some good wine, some okay cardboardeaux or chardboarday, or something else for the non-wine drinkers. What’s on tap, y’all?

The game is too fast for the B’s. It’s slowed down for the Preds

Pastrnak thinks he’s hilarious because he calls McQuaid “McQuaider”, because it’s his last name AND his nickname.

Jimmy Hayes also told us that Pastrnak was REALLY excited about National Pasta Day.

They call Connolly Buzz, for Buzz Lightyear. Beleskey says he’s a weird kid and has a new nickmame every week. I don’t know if he meant he comes up with weird ones, or gets weird ones.

Also, Morrow calls Beleskey Popeye

because he’s big and strong like that guy, and he has that anchor tattoo. I think it works.

Oh my good, some hockey players actually have some creativity? Sweet

Oh!

A couple more – Tuukka says they used to call Hayes “Broadway”, but now they call him “Causeway” because that’s where he lives.

A personal favorite:
Marshy says they call Beleskey and Hayes Doug and Steve Butami.

So the nickname thing: they’re asking the Bruins about each other’s nicknames.

David Krejci:

Well there’s Marchand – Marshy, Bergeron – Bergy, Krug – Krug…”

Krejci is such a mild person and I love him for it

Yeah he’s awesome in interviews. I remember that he said something once that could have been really bad sounding without the proper punctuation so he repeated hi sentence and added “comma” and “period” to make himself clear.

I only wish I remember what he said exactly.

He’s a riot, and I’m pretty sure he’s fully aware.
