Morning Free Association: March 1

These are the things you need to know about last night’s game:

  • Colin Miller scored a goal early in the first period but was ejected from the game in the second for a good, clean, and hard hockey hit. It is unfortunate that the point of contact was Alexander Burmistrov’s head/ neck area. Chiller was assessed a penalty for charging and a Game Misconduct.
  • Opinions were varied and, at times, vicious (thanks Hockey Twitter™!) Lucky for us, we have our very own ref, who shared his thoughts about the penalties.

    Even though he left the game on a stretcher, Burmistrov is going to be ok.

  • Three other Bruins players lit the lamp last night, all in the Formerly Dreaded Second Period: Riley Nash (4), David Backes (13), Brad Marchand (28). Nash’s goal was his first-ever short-handed goal. These goals led to a Coyotes goaltender swap from Mike Smith to Louis Domingue. (I had know idea his first name was Louis!)
  • Tuukka did good things throughout and gave up only 1 goal to Peter Holland on a Coyotes power play.
  • Nothing notable happened in the third period. Nada. Zip.
