Morning Free Association: November 17

There’s a disturbance in the Bruins. Young forward David Pastrnak was in need of a maintenance day and was unable to practice yesterday. Instead, as an intrepid reporter from the Boston Globe would report, another warm body would take his place in practice.

No, that’s not it.

OK, that’s better. But, which Miller? Colin? Kevan? High Life?

Said reporter also noted that Matt Beleskey took a puck to the face in practice.

Here’s some good news: backup goaltender Anton Khudobin is closer to a return to play.

Your Boston Bruins are facing the Minnesota Wild tonight at 8pm EST.

I hadn’t realized that the concussion on the Hunwick hit (the one that ended his career) was his sixth! That’s enough to make Swiss cheese out of anyone’s brain.

And also make you hate Matt Cooke all over again.

Clode has confirmed no Pasta for us tonight.

Presumably Colin Miller on the right wing of the low-carb first line then, as per practice?

The Bruins’ website projects Riley Nash in Pasta’s spot. It also says that Nash has skated in that spot “for the past two days in practice”. Maybe Fluto was having a case of mistaken identity?

Maybe he was just acting as a place-holder in practice while they fly someone out from PVD?

Well, in theory Bs have a “spare” forward since Schaller sat out the second leg of the back-to-back. I didn’t hear anything about him being injured, at least…

That said, Nash was also missing yesterday and seen no updates on him.

Were the three bears always the header picture for today’s MFA? Or am I just in serious need of a nap?

And just like that an hour later it’s broken again because the ink testing guy (irony?) connected a light cyan vent to a yellow ink bag

I read that as “My boss punched the bear.” I am really off today.

I’m pretty sure “Don’t poke the bear” goes double for punching!

My latest obsession is reviewing everything Google Maps suggests. I just reviewed four rest areas.
