Morning Free Association: February 20

Bruins are 1-0 on the Dreaded West Coast Roadtrip and 4-0 in the Cassidy Era.

First Period:

Frank Vatrano has an excellent scoring opportunity within the first two but for Martin Jones.

Ryan Spooner, assisted by Jimmy Hayes and Adam McQuaid, scores the first goal of the game at 11:05.

Watch out Sidney Crosby!

Second Period:

Tuukka made strong saves.

Krejci had a beauty of chance but couldn’t bury the puck.

Brent Burns slapped one on goal and hit the post.

A scrum erupted with less than three minutes to go. A member of each team ended up in the penalty box: Brendan Dillon for the Sharks, Riley Nash for the Bruins. Shortly after this is sorted, Patrick Marleau sees a chance on the open net when McQuaid is caught out of position trying to push a Shark out of the crease. Tied game, 1-1.

Third Period:

David Pastrnak wanted to light the lamp. Martin Jones didn’t support that idea.

Game remained tied 1-1.

Overtime:

Bruins had a lot of good offensive zone time for first 1:22. Then it was more back-and-forth for the next minute or so. Time for Brad to shine.

Brad Marchand scored the game winning goal when Patrice Bergeron won the faceoff, got the puck back to Torey Krug, who tossed the puck down the ice. Brad caught up with it, backhanded it softly five-hole on Jones.

Hello!

I haven’t been here since Wednesday. As I thought, I did have a concussion. Saturday was the first day I felt pretty much back to normal. Unfortunately, I woke up Sunday with a confirmed case of the crud.

I slept through much of the Bruins game last night, but I awoke for the OT, and I am glad I did.

Good Morning, pals!!!
Wow! What a weekend!!! Got a bit of work done Saturday morning, then on the river all day!!! I get a text about 10:30pm – are we doing it again tomorrow? That would be a yes! I was feeling pretty good yesterday and did all kinds of crazy shit in the river. One of the few things I don’t like about our river is the put in – a tough slog down a steep incline. Lots of snow made for a great seal launch. I even caught air before hitting the water. I’m still all pumped up from it and warm weather all week!!!!!
Oh yeah, the Bs! Yay!!!
Coffee and a little work (very little!).

First off…HORRAY HOCKEY!

Went to my cousin’s wedding in Philly over the weekend and had a really good time. Kinda wish i was sat with the hot bridesmaids instead of cousins…but ill survive.

That was a lovely game. Nice to see Spooner contribute again, seems like Cassidy’s system and lines has really helped Spooner & Hayes become a productive line…and no surprise to see Vitrano getting points in a more forward game.

Krug to Marshand game winner was beautiful. That pass, play call, and that freeze to open the space between the legs was lovely.

Both Goaltenders played great, it was nice to see the bruins be able to still push against a goalie that was trying very very hard to get in their heads. Also…Bruins handing 2 losses to a team that has been on a roll lately is good for the morale. I was curious how they were going to come out after a week off…that is a long time to just sit and not see action.

That’s how it works at weddings right?

I’m sorry to be that guy, but it’s been driving me nuts haha, it’s Vatrano, not Vitrano. But yes, that line looks better, still scares me defensively, but roll it oout 60% in the offensive zone and that’s handled.

It really was beautiful.

Agreed on handing losses. That’s gotta feel great & want to keep feeling that way. They’re just the 4th out of 20 teams to win their first game out of the bye week.

I was in-and-out last night. I do always enjoy a win, however. Too bad every other team in the division also won. It might have been nice to gain on Ottawa or pad the gap with Toronto or Tampa.

Just makes this win even more important

Good Morning!

-Man, I just love one day weekends. Especially when most people had a 3-day one. /s
-I went to bed after the 2nd, but from what I saw, dare I say that the game was a fun one? The last end of the 2nd was a rapid back-and-forth that the Bruins actually (sort of) kept up with for once, it seemed (other than the goal, which honestly felt a bit fluky anyways)
-Also, while the final OT play clearly worked in our favor, I feel like they set themselves up for failure had we not won the face-off (i.e. Marchand would have been so far from that play)
-We bought a car this weekend! Or we think we did? There’s some confusion with scheduling the pick up. Hopefully tomorrow though.
-I just got an e-mail saying only that some equipment is down. No explanation of the issue. Guess I know what I’m doing first this morning. Wheeeee.

Happy Monday, folks.
