Morning Free Association: It’s Time for the Playoffs!

The regular season games have all been played. The final seeding has been set. Even though they lost their final two games of the season, the Bruins lucked out.

Last night Columbus did us a solid by defeating Toronto; now the Bruins have the third seed in the Atlantic. The road is still a tough one as the opponent is now the second-seeded Ottawa Senators and thankfully not the Washington Capitals. Still, Boston was 0-4 against the Tootsies this season.

Thank you Angry Fonzie and the Blue Jackets crew!

With that, it’s time to focus on serious playoff business. Late last night, the NHL released the first round schedule for all teams. Here’s a screenshot for the Bruins-Senators series.

Below is the current Stanley Cup playoff bracket according to the official NHL Website.

Playoff bracket

I have created two leagues, a private league for Bobby to Bergy (password Brand0Carlriss1an) and a public one for members and listeners of Bearly on Topic (no password). Join both or either. Brackets should be available to fill out starting today and must be completed and saved by Wednesday April 12th at 6:59pm ET. I emphasized saved because last year it was not intuitive. If you have issues, let me know and I’ll try to help you out.

Both day-to-day. Haggs says Krug has a knee injury and Carlo has a concussion. Haven’t found another source to corroborate.

Sweeney said Krug probably out for game one. Carlo definitely out.

Good afternoon, pals!

I think McAvoy-Liles is a super weird pairing. Why not put McAvoy with Chara instead?

Chiller and Killer is a pair I actually like. I can’t believe I said that.

Chara – McAvoy
Chiller – Killer
Liles – McQuaid

Done.

What do you guys think of Edmonton’s chances? Can they even remember how to play playoff hockey out there?!

They missed out by 17 points last year.

I actually think they’ll do well. McDavid will show us that he’s got a whole ‘nother level, and Looch is going to turn it on like he can from time to time. I feel it, and I will be surprised if they don’t win a couple rounds.

The greatest sportswriter there ever was says knee injury for Krug, concussion for Carlo, both day-to-day. Is there another source for this?

What the fuck? Have the Bruins been hanging out with the Red Sox?
