Morning Free Association, October 17

The Bruins dropped one to Toronto on Saturday night. But, they’re on to Winnipeg.

Claude was asked about the availablity of several players for the game tonight:

Tuukka indicated that he’s ready to go.

Should we hope that Bergy can make it to the game or take a few more days to really make sure he’s ready? Should we be worried about Tuukkas soreness issue? Did anyone even know that there was something wrong with Backes?

Discuss.

not to start a whole new topic but i just remembered…

worried about Tuukkas soreness issue?

In game one didnt tuukka have a moment where he had to collect himself from being on one knee? Initially i was like “oh no…groin strain coming back again” and then stayed in the game. Could that be why he was out in game 2?

Good Morning All!
Been busy with new house stuff this morning.
Oktoberfest was great. Many thanks to GH and IW.
I ate a lot of food that I’ve never eaten before (stretching my food envelope!) and was surprised at how great it all was! I think the sauerbraten was amazing. Also, the currything was really, really good.
Desert? Wow! the shiksacake was the schizzle, my nizzles! That appledeal was great, as well.
It was really great to meet some more oyster crackers. Great people, great times.
Jo and I even got to play a round of disc with Tallest. We were really happy to find he was at our level (we are all amazing, just not at disc golf!).
Went to see Mom Sunday. Also spent time with my sis and her hubby. They had lots of house advice based on their mistakes (they’ve been working on their house for 35 years and, no, it’s not done).
Heading out to lunch with Jo.

Three keys to tonights game:

Beleskey plays (better) Defence
Goaltender in net is not sleeping
Pasta scores for 3rd game in a row to keep hopes of a full season goal streak alive.

Beleskey plays (better) Defence

I think you can leave out the better. He needs to play defense at this point. He was miserable Saturday

I am still curious if this is due to trying to do too much with a young center? I would have to rewatch to see if Czar was also out of position…but yeah…forwards need to stop letting the extra man be open.

Four:

Score more goals than the Jets do.

Five:
Make sure none of those goals go into your own net.

Oh did anyone pass along the signing Hampus strategery to The Don Sweeney? That was hilarious.

Whoever is “Yandle with Care”; were having a nice back and forth battle. After I started strong you came back to clobber me and now were tied. This is exciting

That’s a good question as I am drawing ever so close to Tuuka Catsk!

Good morning, friends.

I’m still grading the most depressing batch of midterms I’ve ever graded. For example, I asked my students who was the black man who died in the Boston Massacre. It was a multiple choice question. Several students picked “Luke Cage.” GOD DAMN IT, STUDENTS.

WestWorld is a cool show, though. More hockey tonight.

Miss Muse

Ha ha ha…well Crispus Attucks IS mentioned A LOT in Luke Cage! grin

I know! That’s why I put Luke Cage in as my “joke” answer. Oh man.

I’m seriously going to have to recalibrate this class. I’ve never had so many Fs. And I thought that the test was super easy. I’m baffled.

HOW COULD THEY NOT KNOW THIS WAS NOT THE ANSWER? DO THEY NOT HAVE NETFLIX?

Miss Muse
Editor

Although, yeah, you ARE right, I thought Luke Cage was supposed to be indestructible anyway. grin

See, some of my students wrote “impossible” next to Luke Cage on the test. Some are in the know!

Well, I’m sure that’s right. But I’m willing to bet that most have only seen the TV series (myself included).

Morning all!

Yay, I might be able to see most of this game with you!

Not a whole heck of a lot happening this weekend. I took care of my friend’s cat and I think walking back and forth set me back a little on my cold but I’m otherwise OK.

So yesterday I spent a lot of time watching TV. I started watching Pitch which I liked fine, but I really have nothing but amazing, wonderful things to say about This Is Us. It’s so well written and just has a lot of heart behind it. Went through all the feels last night watching it.

Welp, Happy Monday.

Well thanks for kicking off the game thread on Saturday. I was having a hard time keeping my eyes open and had a house full of people.
