Morning Free Association: Injury Mountain

It’s hockey season and our team has only played one game so far. Most teams have played about three games so far. This is weird.

OK, that was even weirder.

Fear not, Bruins hockey starts happens again today in a huge manatee game against the Colorado Natural Disaster Avalanche. More on that later in Game Thread City around 12:30 or so.

We do have some important injury information to talk about. First the good news. This weekend Torey Krug started practicing without a red “no-contact” jersey this weekend which means he’s pretty much ready to go, but he’ll still be a game time decision. I’m assuming he’ll have the proper facial apparatus to keep his jaw in place and away from injury.

Tiny Torey

Other game time decisions will be Patrice Bergeron and Austin Czarnik. Bergeron has been skating by himself prior to practices and was spotted wearing the dreaded red jersey.

Bruce Cassidy gave his own update on Bergy:

“He didn’t finish practice,” said Cassidy. “He started, took some line rushes, so he’s progressing. How far he’s progressed, we’ll determine that in the morning. And again, he’ll be a game-time decision.”

Below Patrice talks about how he’s feeling:

I guess we’ll see how it shakes out. We could have a more complete lineup for the game today and moving forward.

Now for the bad news. Noel Acciari has a fractured left index finger on which he had surgery on Friday. He’s expected to be out for at least 6 weeks.

Yes, it does, Bill. Yes. it. does.

Hey Pals!
I slept in this morning.
I think they said the Bs were 10 – 3 in games started before 5 pm last season but, this feels like so many matinee games. Bruins play well, but are a lil lackluster for a second here or there and they lose a boring game – EVERY COLUMBUS AND MLK DAY!!!!!! Stop it!
Great time at the Terrier – Bobcat game yesterday with Phony. Also, the fig, prosciutto, arugala and goat cheese(?) flatbread pizza thing. Yes,yes,yes!!!!!!
Heading back up to watch!!! C’mon Bruins!

Yeah I remembered that last night, as well.

Bruins seemed to take not good teams for granted, especially last season it seems, and would forget how to hockey when they played them.

Welp, yahoo doesn’t seem to be actually streaming this game and now I am cranky.

Oh that really sucks. Sorry to get your hopes up.

Miss Muse

Maybe you’re blacked out? sad I’m getting it, but I also didn’t think blackouts applied to this.

Hi folks.

Not available in my area either and I’m blackout out on NHLtv. Found a dodgy stream – Hopefully it stays live, but I’ve got to bath my daughter in a bit and put her to bed anyway!

Morning all,

I made the probably not smart decision to have coffee at 4 p,m. yesterday and then some idiot upstairs decided to move furniture around at 11:30 p.m. I’m feeling kind of rough right now.

The Bruins game will be playing on Yahoo if any of you want to have it on in the background. I have to train a new work study student today so I will probably be able to see/hear only the 1st period, but that’s better than nothing.

Nice, thanks for the heads up on the streaming.

I’m surprised coffee works for so long for you. I could drink coffee at like 9pm and still go to bed. Weird!

What do you mean, it’s on Yahoo? I don’t usually stream so this is Greek to me.

I had a 5-hour energy at 10PM once and was asleep less than 2 hours later. Coffee in the morning also doesn’t really wake me up if I’m tired – I only drink it because I like it. I’m convinced I’m immune to caffeine.

Miss Muse

Here’s the link. Yahoo, since sometime last year, I think, will run a live stream of one or two games a day.

Blacked out!

Awesome, thank you! I had no idea.

I can’t drink caffeine after noon. Finally learned my lesson that it makes it very hard for me to fall asleep at night.

Also, this gif is hypnotic.

Wow!

Yes, I think this gif should be a loading screen
