Morning Free Association, CAN THE BRUINS HOCKEY, NOW?

The 2016-2017 NHL Season officially began last night, a night which belonged to the number-one-overall draft pick of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft Auston Matthews.

Matthews scored a goal on his first shot…

and another on his second shot…

and a Hat Trick by his third…

All totaled, Auston Matthews scored 4 goals on 6 shots for the night.

In Bruins News:

Patrice Bergeron is out of the lineup and did not travel with the team with a “short-term” injury.

This statement from Head Coach Claude Julien didn’t stop people from speculating and jumping to conclusions that this injury could ruin the season for the Bruins.

With Bergeron taking time to mend, players have to slide in and fill-in at other positions…

…like David Backes filling in at center.

Hang on kids, the season’s just starting!

Don’t forget to come back for the game thread later on tonight.
