Morning Free Association: Bye Week Madness

How many goals did the Habs score against the Bruins on Sunday?

That’s right, ZERO!
A nice shutout for Tuukka.

Lets show some highlights.

First, there was this fun little altercation

Krug, Shaw and cousin Frodo would receive Five for FIGHTING!


Yeah, you’re damn right!

Tuukka made some nice saves this period, but the scoring opens with a rare Quaider goal from a feed from new guy Peter Cehlarik!

Chara also logged a snazzy goal

Krejci scored a power play goal


The Bruins special teams have really been on fire the last few games.
I mean, geez, check out the power play package on those guys!

And a Frankie V special


How many games do the Bruins play this week?
That’s right, ZERO. It’s the bye week.

I hope you like minor league hockey, because that’s what’s on tap for the week.

Morning!

Our gazebo-type-thing collapsed today. That sucked.

But, it is quite a glorious day to hate the Habs.

Why is it not possible to flush ink w/out a major leak anymore???

I bet the ink is too basic, and it is dissolving the pipes.

carvinbass18

it’s because we’re building ink boxes in house now & stuff isn’t getting tightened properly leading to cracks or loose fittings.

I mean I knew why all along, but wtf.

Les bleu, blanc et merd folding like a cheap suit. I love it!!!
Not one to toot my own horn (yes, I am!), but I think I pedicted the habnots would fall back to earth early on – or that might have been a dream – whatevs.
The Krazy Pasta and Celery line (Czechs mix line!!!) looked great! That Celery kid fits in well.
Still nursing Jo back to health.

Morning all!
Obligatory:

Shoveled last night and I woke up this morning it looked like I didn’t do a damn thing. Was hoping the boss would give us a snow day but nope. Bastard.
Five minutes each for FIGHTING! That will never not be awesome.

Good morning, friends. I hope you’re enjoying your ridiculous amounts of snow.

Great win last night. I hope that the break won’t slow down their momentum. Seems like a bad time to have a “bye week.”

I’m not so sure it’s a bad thing. They are going in with positive vibes all around and are going to come out rested and knowing where they stand w/r/t the Sens and the Leafs.

I don’t know how it works but I’m sure it’s to get him into more games.

Good morning everyone.

  • 3-0 huh? A 4-0 win against the bleu blanc et Douche? LOVE IT
  • Listening on the radio this morning, pretty much every single government building / school is closed today. 90% of the banks are opening at noon. 1st shift at a factory in concord isn’t opening until 10. All schools that report to the stormcenter are closed. All of them (I’m just quoting the radio on that).
  • A pipe under the house froze up again… I really hate idiots who can’t do things right the first time. Can’t wait for this winter to be over so I can fix this properly.
  • Normally here at work there are 28 people who work production. That number doesn’t include stock, quality, manufacturing engineering, supervisors. I have seen 27 people here today total. Why am I here?

    It’s weird. My office is actually pretty full and I don’t understand why.

    First off, i missed that penalty call during the game…that…is AWESOME.

    Secondly, great fucking game…and not just cause the habs lost in lovely fashion but i think this was the true test to see if the new stress on “guys…you can be fast” works against a speedy team. There were a few min in the 2nd where they were stuck in their own zone but they kept it in hard to score areas. the ability to kill that 5-3 and that PP is starting to look a bit better on both lines, which for awhile that first line was the only one even able to keep a sustained presence.

    Hell Even Hayes is showing production regularly in the last 3 games…which…says something.

    carvinbass18

    That 5-3 PK was a thing of beauty. Montreal had possession inside the zone for a lot of it, but it was all on the perimeter. Hell if you’re a Habs fan that must have been absolutely infuriating.

    Dobrý den!

    I accidentally found out the final score before seeing the game, so I settled for the highlights, but considering the Czechoslovak element’s contribution I’m sure it will be all over the sports news!

    What a one timer from Quaider? And Zee enjoyed his goal, huh?!

    Hadn’t the Habs won about ten straight at the Garden? Sweet. Love that Tweet about the crowd at the station.

    Is it still too soon to sing Cassidy’s praises?

    Been skiing this morning. We’re going everyday this week apparently. Father-in-law has signed Little Bear up for a week of ski classes. She enjoyed her first one to my great relief.

    No Bruins hockey for a week but we can cheer for whoever Toronto and Ottawa are playing…

    Quaider looked a bit surprised when that shot went in.

    Is it still too soon to sing Cassidy’s praises?

    Yes and no?

    His system’s warts will show when we let up an ugly one every now and then, but I think in general, we’re going to be lighting the lamp more often because we’re not afraid to go low anymore.

    imbiginjapan

    The thing is they ALREADY were letting in ugly ones with increasing frequency. I am not badmouthing Julien here but I feel like perhaps as a response to the sloppy defense of the past two seasons he continued to add structure to the point the team was being stifled. IMO win or loss the on-ice product was ever more frequently boring and slow, with uninspired offense and inexplicable mental lapses from the players – perhaps fighting between natural instinct and the needs of the’system’.

    phonymahoney
    Editor

    Good point. Agreed. If they’re going to lose, being fun to watch would be great, at least.

    very good point.

    Thetallest81

    Thetallest81

    agreed. I think im sticking with my original assessment that this team is going to be more of a “trading chances” type teama nd as long as the goaltenders can do a good job holding their own i thing it should work to the bruins advantage having not only tuukka in net but also the highest potential to get pucks on net.

    phonymahoney
    Editor

    Yup. Tuukka looked solid last night and is hopefully coming back around.

    carvinbass18
    Editor

    I think it’s still too early for praising Cassidy, but it’s promising. Once we cross the 10 game mark I think we’ll know who he is as a coach a bit more. Right now they’re playing on emotion.

    agreed, however i do like his push to use players in roles they are more comfortable in. Less stress on getting back on D i think has loosened their grips and their minds to take better shots and get in dirtier areas…i think so far the plan fits the team which i have a feeling is also more towards the type of team sweeney was building and aiming for.
