Morning Free Association: March 29

Last night’s win was a good, definitive one. The Bruins led from the start, Tuukka only allowed a solitary goal in the third, and there was even an empty netter. That’s not the one I want to talk about. You see Pride of Rhode Island, Noel Acciari, scored his first NHL goal. And I was there. I was even wearing my Acciari shirsey under my Carlo jersey, so I guess that’s a bit of good luck now.

After the game, as Acciari was talking to Jack and Brick about the goal, David Pastrnak helped him celebrate properly. (Props to dafoomie for capturing this)

I’m so proud of him!

On to other news. I happened to see this on Twitter:

What is this all about? Anyone have a clue?

Was a pretty goal from Acciari set up beautifully by Nash. Nice display of patience from him

Yeah, it really was a nice, nice goal.

Glad you brought up Nash. He’s been very good over the last 10 games or so, and pretty solid all season.

Was rooting for Nash to complete the hat-trick at Barclays.
The set-up for Acciari’s goal was all Nash. It’s good to see him make some plays.

He has been solid all season, and really good lately.

I don’t know if any of you listen to Toucher and Rich, BUT this morning while talking about Cuts for a Cause, they unveiled a fabulous segment with #42: Backes Boys.

David Backes sings boy band hits and the radio guys have to guess which band’s songs they are. The SportsHub guys thought, nah, Backes is a tough guy and won’t be into it… NOPE. They gave him a lyrics sheet and he threw it away – apparently he’s a huge boy band fan. It was great. He would end each song with something like, “Can I take you to the semiformal?”. He’s a natural – A+.

Curious if announce Cassidy as full term Coach…OR MAYBE THEY SIGNED PASTA OOOOOOOO

I’m guessing some talk about the two signings, maybe something about McAvoy?

Which two?

I should clarify: the actual signings of Fitzgerald and Johansson, or the hopefuly signings of JFK and McAvoy?

I was thinking Fitz & Johansson

Goooooood Morning, pals!!
Nice win for the Bs last night. They need ’em all. Happy to see Acciari score. I love his style of play (#GRIT) and always felt he’d be able to chip in a few goals.
Double header last night. The knee got clipped (even though there was plenty of room to go around me) and does not feel great this morning.
Definitely need the Mopar coffee this morning!!!

Exactly. He plays too heavy of a game to not get a few bangers here and there. 8-10 per 82 is completely reasonable for him. He’s so responsible though that his game is 100% worth keeping around.

He strikes me as the perfect fourth liner – play nine minutes of completely flat-out, hard-charging hockey.

Good morning, pals!

  • Rough morning. I’m beat.
  • comment image

  • Nice to see the boys string a couple together.
  • I’m glad Acciari is back, I loved his Boychukesque hitting ability since day one. I’m glad he finally added something to the arsenal. Other than the lack of scoring, he’s loooked like an NHLer.
  • Krejci and Pastrnak looked like they were bound to get something going last night. Those two were flying.
  • Speaking of Crazy Eights, that fancy spin he did was a thing of beauty.
  • comment image

  • Tuukka played well last night, too. All in all, I feel better about them than I did last week.

    Can we start a crowdfunder to get GH and IW to all the Bruins remaining games?
