Morning Free Association: Bruins Lose

Guys, that game was no Bueno. I didn’t pay close attention to it because I was multi-tasking. It seemed like it was a precarious balancing act for about a period and a half, then once that third goal happened, there was no coming back.

Here’s what Torey Krug and Bruce Cassidy had to say about it.

I still maintain that it’s going to be fun watching the young guys and we’re still going to have our growing pains as well. The Bruins next play the second half of the home-and-home and wrap up the season series against the Avalanche in Denver.

One thing I’d like to point out: if Tuukka has been tasked with playing the puck more, we’re going to see more gaffes like this one.

WTF, Tuukka?

Shifting gears for a bit – Bob McKenzie, back to hockey after his summer of margaritas, has the odds on the Calder Trophy winner. Note that there are two young Bruins there, as if we expected anything else. And he has a favorite, or at least one he’d bet on.


With that, I’ll sign off on MFAs for the better part of two weeks. We’ll try to check in from time to time on the road.

My boss broke his finger at hockey this morning and I can’t stop laughing at how annoyed he is. Best part of the story: “It wouldn’t stop bleeding while I was playing the rest of the game.”

Morning all.

So that game WAS a bomb. A turkey. A dud. But I hate going into the recaps of other articles to find people are already wanting to burn the team down to the ground, and trade Tuukka, and yell at Sweeney for not doing “anything” over the summer. It’s only been two games, calm the hell down.

Did anyone see Sidney Crosby’s recent comment about the trip to the White House? It’s really blissfully ignorant, to say the least. And while they can say it’s not about politics, they’re going to meet with a man who now wants to change the US tax laws to punish the NFL because of all those who kneeled during the anthem. The Pens may not want to make this about politics, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you-know-who was going to drag them into it anyway.

As for Crosby and the Pens… I don’t like them going, but I also think it’s comletely asinine for people to act like professional athletes have a duty to make political statements and give us perfect sound bites. As my father used to say, “not my yob, man”.

Two games, both with no Bergy and no Backes, one with no Krug, one with no Acciari. COME. ON.

  • I missed the hockey contest yesterday and I guess I’m glad I did.
  • Now we have to wait til Wednesday! Grr!
  • I’m in an uproar, my life is in upheaval, and I’m going to upchuck.
  • Everything will be find but I have to move and I’m all out of sorts and mad and upset and unhappy and UGH.
  • Totally weirded out by the Shipachyov situation. Why is McPhee not playing his number one center just to hang on to a bunch of borderline NHL defensemen? Really strange IMO.

  • Yes, that was a Night Court gif.

    Roommates left. Aunt has repeatedly either said “‘ll get back to you, I have a lot on my mind” or has changed her mind on me SEVERAL times about whether she wants me to stay or go, how much rent is, how much roommate’s rent would be, whether she wants me to get another roommate, etc. I have been through the wringer with this woman and I’m totally stressed about the whole thing.

    On top of that, it has me inconveniencing and aggravating other people by setting them up for disappointment. I DON’T want to move but i’m so fucking drained at this point

    Hey Pals!
    I watched the whole thing yesterday. Yuck! The effort was there, at times. It looked like the ice was bad, follow the bouncing puck. Tuukka was not spectacular. Mistakes were made.
    It’s one game. Colorado pulled this shit early last year, then Varlamov went down. I just picked him up for the Striped Mofos..
    Okay, work to do. The tractor is leaving the barn!

    Air travel is misery from start to finish. And now they’re talking about limiting the amount of booze you can drink at the airport- the only thing that makes it bearable!

    You’re going to have to drink before you get to the airport!
