Morning Free Association: December 22

Now that we’ve had one day to recover from the Bruins previous purported game (and whatever potent potables we used to quash that memory), let’s move on to the next game, the first in a mini-Florida-North Carolina roadtrip.

Down in Sunrise, Florida the Bruins will meet up once again with the Florida Panthers, that team that has gone 4-7-5 since firing Gerard Gallant.

One bright spot on the team is Jaromir Jagr, who had three assists on Tuesday night, which made him move into a tie for second in all-time scoring with Mark Messier.

That is some achievement. Of course, Sportsnet Stats had to ruin the celebration.

Jerks.

The questions that should be burning your tongues today are these: Is Pasta ready to play? Hey, how about Frankie V?

Well, Claude is also a killjoy and doesn’t really have an answer for us, at least one that we want to hear anyway.

It should be noted that the two both practiced on Wednesday and indicated that they felt good.

So, we’ll see?

One thing’s for sure, we could use a few young talents to get that scoring right where it needs to be. Maybe Zack could fill in?

Good morning, pals!

  • This morning, I was on my way out of the house when I found a cylindrical package in the front hall. I thought maybe it was the gift I ordered for my boss, but there was no return address. I picked it up, and it made noise — enough noise that I was convinced the contents of the package was completely shattered. I wondered what I ordered that would be sent this way, and then realized it was probably my secret Santa gift. It was sealed VERY well with some fancy silver tape (no, not duct tape!) – so well, in fact, that I needed to go back into the house to get the damn thing open. I finally pried the package open, and the noise was not broken glass, but what seemed to be HUNDREDS of tiny jingle bells. While the bells were a surprising touch, I 100% knew who the gift was from because of the zany packaging. There were two wrapped gifts inside: fuzzy Bruins socks, and some pretty fucking AWESOME skate blade protectors that will keep my skates (but alas, not myself) rust free. Badass. Thanks, Joe!
  • Today should be a non-busy day for the most part, which will be excellent, because I could really use it right now!
  • I have wrapped zero so far. I am not worried.
  • Out for drinks tonight with work people. Should be an interesting time. heh heh.
  • Remember when our hockey team won games?
  • Frankie back tonight, maybe? Maybe?

    Pasta skated at practice yesterday too! may we see
    Marsh-Bergy-Pasta
    Franko-Krejci-Backes
    Spoons-Nash-Czar
    Schaller-Moore-Acciari
    ?

    Not a perfect lineup, as Spoons is in the wrong spot, but I makes me more than a little excited.

    Incidentally, while I’d figured that Franko’s return would signal the inevitable Spooner trade, I realize now it has to wait until Beleskey returns

    Spooner wouldn’t be moved until the trade deadline anyway.

    For those that didn’t see this:

    I'm pretty sure somebody in the balcony just moaned "It's my birthday" which might honestly be the funniest analysis of a struggle.
