Morning Free Association: May 1
So, it’s been pretty quiet since Boston was knocked out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last Sunday.
Of course, Bruce Cassidy was named the head coach of the Bruins last week. For those who missed it, he gave a great interview with Toucher and Rich during which he proclaimed that he’s always hated the Habs. (The audio of the interview is embedded in the page.)
Looking ahead this week, it looks like Jeremy, Charlie, and Cam will be giving their end of season thoughts in a presser on Tuesday at 10am.
The Providence Bruins have made it through the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs, defeating the Pittsburgh’s AHL affiliate the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. Netminder Zane McIntyre was as close to a brick wall as a goalie gets in the victory.
Next up they face the Hershey Bears (Capitals AHL team). You’ll have to wait until Thursday May 11th for the first home game of that series.
