Morning Free Association: November 30

If you missed last night’s game, you didn’t miss much in the first two periods. However it was the remaining 3 periods (oh, yes, there was a third, a 3-on-3 overtime, and a shootout, which I count as a period) that made it a real game. The third period alone had so much bad officiating that it could have served as it’s own game.

First Period:

Of course the Flyers scored 2 goals on 9 shots.

Second Period:

Third Period:

Holy shit, all the things happened!

Krejci shows he knows how to goal! 1-1.

Brad ties up the game, 2-2.

Tuukka Rask was like this.

Bad officiating resulted in many calls, non-calls, and bogus calls, like a mysterious phantom call on Joe Morrow for holding resulting in a penalty shot opportunity by Voracek. He was denied by Tuukka.

OT and Shootout:

The shootout went many rounds with only Brad netting one allowing the Bruins to stay in it. Eventually, Shayne Gostisbehere trickled one over Rask’s glove for a score.

The Bruins now have their first loser point on the season. Better than no points.

It hit me last night that the only things I’ve had to eat FOR A WEEK has been spicy black beans, spicy pickles, spicy mashed potatoes, stuffing, and spicy mac’n’cheese. I think I know why my stomach feels horrible.

Wooo! Guys & gals, but we just finally got a simple piece of sheet metal in and now we can finally ship 2 printers!!!! They were originally here last Friday, but they were the wrong side, so we had to send them back causing massive headaches.

Morning!

I have a strong distaste for the shootout and that one was doubly pathetic. That loss just stunk all around except for maybe that penalty shot save. To lose in a shootout when you out-shoot your opponent like that sucks.

We have a use-it-or-lose-it vacation plan here at work. So I have two days to burn. I’m thinking about taking next Friday and the week after. That would mean this would be my last 5-day workweek until next year. Do I do it?

Happy Wednesday everyone. We’re halfway there.

I missed last night because I was playing a hockey game of my own! This winter league is the most fun I’ve ever had playing hockey.

Morning everyone!

  • so I missed stuff last night huh?
  • Feels weird to have a 1 in that third column now. Felt like we were the last team to not have one for a long time
  • Despite going to bed around 9 and sleeping in an extra 20 minutes, I am still tired. Dammit
  • Holy shit the Rangers have a +29 goal differential
  • Had some coffee but now water on tap all day because I think it might just be 5000 degrees in here

    Yeah, there goes our perfect OT/SO record. Could’ve preserved it if Claude had just put Brad out there one round sooner.

    Despite going to bed around 9 and sleeping in an extra 20 minutes, I am still tired. Dammit

    Oh boo-hoo. wink (See post above about wife’s crappy flight.) I didn’t get to sleep until sometime around 3:00AM.

    Holy shit the Rangers have a +29 goal differential

    How come WE never get to have the nice things?

    Yeah, that is major amounts of suck right there, what time did you have to get up in the morning?

    9:00AM, but I was also up for a while around 4:30AM because sleep hates me.

    Sometimes sleeping for too long has the opposite effect on you. My wife finally realized that one day and started forcing herself to wake up at a certain time, even though most days she doesn’t have to work until 3PM (or not at all!)

    Tough loss last night – maybe I’ll get to watch the next one with y’all.

    Good morning.

  • It’s end of month and I am NOT excited for today.

  • You probably won’t see me after like 9:00 because I’ll have vaporized and landed in another dimension.

  • I was less than impressed with the first two periods. The boys didn’t play horribly, just not well enough to accomplish anything.
  • comment image#36

  • A friend mentioned this cockamamie idea to me last night after I commented that Bergy’s having a kind of quiet season so far: maybe Pastrnak should play with Krejci again, because now Bergy and Marshmont are feeding Pastrnak and have kind of lost some of their Bergy & Marshy-ness? Just a thought.

    Interesting option. It might make the Krejci line a bit more potent too, but at the same time, I think we should not change the lines for a few games and find it. There’s been a lot of turn over again to create scoring & I’m wondering if it’s doing more harm than good.

    I’m thinking it may be a good idea if we don’t screw with the forwards until we have at least one of Chara or Liles back.

    If the lineup is less injured, I’m all for trying it.
