Morning Free Association: January 17

Before the game, Bruins centerman Patrice Bergeron had told NESN correspondent Sarah Davis off camera that he liked the matinee games because they were nice to play since he gets up early. Judging from the results of Saturdays game against the Flyers, I would agree. But…


No scoring. No penalties. The play wasn’t great but the mistakes didn’t kill them. The period moved quickly.

Most amusing stat: Boston had 4 icings to the Isles 1 with three-plus to go in the first period.

The most exciting scoring opportunity came just under 3 minutes when Torey Krug took a slap shot on Greiss. David Pastrnak, who was screening, tried for the opportunity to dump it in just went wide.

Bruins end the period with 6 SOG, Islanders with 3.


Early Bruins penalty by David Pastrnak, kill it off.

At 13:18, Nicolay Kulemin catches Tuukka playing out front of the net, sees some daylight and takes a shot on the empty side of the net.

At 15:00 Josh Bailey scores. Bruins are now down 2-0.

18:38 Nicolay Kulemin again.

Boston receives a power play opportunity late in the period, which overlaps into the third.


Don’t worry, they didn’t score.

Zane McIntyre came in to relieve the embattled Rask for the entire third period.

I could describe more but you know what, fuck it, I won’t Bruins lose to a terribad Isles team 4-0.
