Morning Free Association 3/9/16

Rad Brad loves you smore and smore!!!!!!!

Good morning, everyone! I love waking up to see wins! The Bruins and Lightning sure love 1-0 thrillers! Alas, the win was in OT so we didn’t claim the division lead, but we’re 4-0-1 in the Steampunk Lily era!

Jonas Gustavsson had some water bottle issues.

The Bruins odds of making the playoffs are now 98.9%. Things are looking dicey for the Penguins and Red Wings, as the Road Cones are nipping at their heels.

Coming up tomorrow is a dreaded home game. What’s on tap?

Why yes, a donut and a root beer is a perfectly acceptable post-workout snack. Why wouldn’t be it? lololololol

Alas, just a sad A&W. That’s all they had in the check-out line fridge.

Boston's John-Michael Liles will have a hearing tomorrow for an illegal check to the head on Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov.

In person? i didn’t think it deserved that….

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

No, if it was in person, it would specifically say so (and those take time and usually come with a ‘suspended indefinitely, pending an in-person hearing’)

ah ok, normally i feel like they specify one way or the other.

Why we can’t have nice things, Exhibit T.

DrHandgrenaid

No history, and it wasn’t a malicious hit I think. But can’t let that slide either. I reckon a fine.

Hey, did you weirdos see that there’s a recap?

Read it first thing this morning… good stuff! Oh, and we’re jerks, not weirdos.

Actually, I think most of us are Massholes.
But that doesn’t preclude us from being jerks and/or weirdos.

Thetallest81

Quite the opposite actually! As far as i am aware we are pretty diversely located…CA, CT, MA, NC, Canada….Europe…

Forgetting anyone? RI? AZ? UT? NH?

I’m a Masshole behind enemy lines in NH.

Must be warm outside because the AC is on in our office and I swear it’s about to snow in here.

So, out of curiosity….how many people’s minds changed about this team’s playoff chances after this stretch?

Miss Muse
Editor

Playoff chances or deep run?

Even in the beginning of the year (not RIGHT at the beginning, but maybe around November or so…) I thought they would make the playoffs, but I have no idea how deep their run will be. I was expecting the worst right at the beginning, but at this point, I’m just happy they’re most likely taking a seat at the table now.

Thetallest81

Moreso the run…for example how many rounds.

Miss Muse
Editor

Well like I said, since I thought they wouldn’t make the playoffs early on, any run this year is just gravy to me. I hate this attitude some have of win the Cup or the season is a total bust, because there’s a number of teams who haven’t seen the playoffs in YEARS. One series at a time. smile

DrHandgrenaid

I see either a first round exit or a run to the ECF right about now. Recent play has made me less pessimistic about our chances in the 2nd

Not sure if I’ve changed my mind on it. I’m just trying to enjoy the run right now. I think the B’s look better than they did this time last season.

UnstableElement

Not significantly. What’s changed in my mind is that I no longer think it will just be a squeak in, and I feel like they may have a chance to make it past the first round.

Morning guys. Having a hard time waking up sad((

Miss Muse

That is odd…I never type “sad((”

No, I missed the Bolts game almost entirely. The bus was late for some dumb reason, but maybe I can catch it tonight or this weekend or something.
