Morning Free Association, October 6

Good Morning! There wasn’t that much Bruins news yesterday other than news that Brian Ferlin has a lower body injury and Kevan Miller is day-to-day after blocking a shot with his knee.

Here’s some feel-good video on Torey Krug and David Krejci coming back from their respective surgeries.

Around the Rink:

  • Connor McDavid is the latest sucker to wear the “C” for the Oilers.
  • Veteran defenseman Dan Boyle announced his retirement from the NHL. This was not surprising given his outburst with a reporter after the Rangers fell in the Stanley Cup Playoffs earlier this spring. Maybe he just had had enough.
  • Barret Jackman retired early in the week, prompting his former teammate David Backes to tweet the following:
  • One more week to go until Bruins’ games that count!

    Good Afternoon All!
    After several attempts at adulting, I am taking the rest of today and tomorrow off to think about how badly I failed.

    it makes going to the liquor store awkward because we get asked if we’re twins. Which is wrong for two reasons. The whole being married thing and the fact that she’s a year older.

    Hell yeah West Virginia!

    (I can make this joke because I have a biyearly family reunion in WV)

    So, if a married couple from West (by God) Virginia move to California and get divorced, are they still brother and sister?
