Morning Free Association: October 11 – Back to Colorado

Embed from Getty Images

Good morning, everyone!

Last night was the very first home opener for the Vegas Golden Knights. As part of their pre-game ceremonies, the players were introduced alongside first responders from the shooting on October 1. In addition, they held a 58-second moment of silence for the 58 people who lost their lives, and their names were displayed on the ice as well. Deryk Engelland, who has lived in Las Vegas since his time in the minors and met his wife there, addressed the crowd with a pre-game speech. World-class work by the Golden Knights’ players, organization, and fans.

As for the game itself, it went just the way they wanted it – a 5-2 win over the Coyotes. James Neal continues to light it up, scoring his 4th and 5th goals of the season.

carvinbass18’s favorite Super Smurf, Alex DeBrincat, scored his first ever goal in the Blackhawks’ 3-1 win over the Canadiens. The Habs drop to 1-3 to start the season. I’m listening to The Morning Show on TSN 690 Montréal and it’s delicious.

Patrice Bergeron missed yesterday’s skate with the team. He’s out tonight in Colorado and is aiming for a weekend return. Riley Nash will take his place on the top line. *checks sheet* Yes, Riley Nash will take Bergeron’s place on the top line.

Danton Heinen was called up from Providence and will be with the team in Colorado. The Bruins also signed forward Ryan White to a PTO because apparently we need more fourth-liners. We really don’t need more fourth-liners, but whatever.

The puck drops in Colorado at 9:30pm tonight! What’s on tap?

Hey all,

The elevator opens to the floor my office is on and I’m greeted by the sounds of high power vacuums echoing down the hall. We had a major pipe burst overnight. Four faculty offices’ carpets are soaked, the water that was all over the hall floor is…pink,

Good morning!

Hi everybody!

I think Sunday is the next time I’ll get to watch live Bruins hockey. 2am+ starts the next couple games so it’ll be catch-up for me.

That said, they should win the next three shouldn’t they? Notwithstanding Vegas’ great start

My darts team have our first league match tonight! A road game against the defending champions. Talk about a baptism of fire. Ah well, if we win we know we have nothing to fear from anyone!

Why can’t we have fun things? It can’t be that hard to have a fun twitter account.

Morning pals!

  • Late start on my end. A little ragged. Fell asleep on top of my bed without GOING to bed, woke up at 2:30 all out of sorts, and here we are.
  • comment image

  • Not really enjoying this hockey schedule so far. WTF?
  • Face planted like 20 FEET into my skating session last night. Landed on my left knee and elbow. I’m a little bruised and hurty. The old man at the rink insists my skating guy pushed me.
  • comment image

  • I really miss hockey and haven’t seen the Bruins play since opening day. Sad!
  • Yes, I just Trumpified my hockey statement. I have found that the only thing I like about him is that he inspired the invention of @BruinsTrump.
  • #Make25GreatAgain – throwing that out there since we’re playing in Brandon Carlo’s homeland tonight.
  • Super stressed about my bullshit living situation.
  • Ryan White made me go, “huh?” and “whatever”. I don’t know.

    Yes, if you’re going Ryan White on us, why not Teddy Purcell? More upside there,no?

    Good Morning!

    So we open the season at a reasonable time, then have to wait 4 days for the next game which is a matinee while I’m working, then the next two games are in mountain time. That’s some kind of bullshit right there.

    Morning all. All the stick taps to the Vegas Golden Knights for a great home opener. Nice touch having EMTs, etc. come out with the players. Also, the little survivor with the gentlest puck drop ever stole my heart:

    mornin all, been at work since 6:30 am…you heard me right….so much tea needed. I think Vegas is a team i can get behind, they seem like they know how to make the sport mean something to the people who love them. I can also get behind the Habs being…not good. Anyone have any juicy bits from whats been going on/said in Montreal?
