Morning Free Association: TGIF

Well, we made it. Happy Friday, everybody!

Just a few notes as the Bruins have a very spaced out schedule these days and won’t play until Saturday.

– The Lightning beat the Penguins 5-4 last night. Slater Koekkoek scored two goals, and the Pens are having a rough go lately. I’m okay with this.

– The Blues are no longer undefeated, unfortunately losing to Florida 5-2 last night. Nobody can go undefeated, but please don’t let Atlantic teams that aren’t the Bruins beat you. Thanks.
Fhffh

– Roberto Luongo tied Cujo for fourth most wins by an NHL goaltender. Good for you, BobbyLu!

– In a recurring theme of allowing five goals, the Blackhawks lost 5-2 to the Wild last night. Good job, Minnesota.

– BU alum and rookie Clayton Keller scored two goals in the Coyotes’ 4-2 loss to Detroit. What did we say about losing to Atlantic teams?!
Kngdn

– Buffalo lost to San Jose. Teenage Mutant Ninja Hertl notched his first of the season. Cowabunga!

This means YOU, Las Vegas Golden FUCKING KNIGHTS! Right now, we still have a chance on Sunday to be the first team EVER to beat the Knights, if The Wings don’t fuck things up for us tonight. (Hey, Wings – we’re perfectly capable of fucking things up for ourselves. We don’t need any help from you, OK?)

Morning all. It’s Friday. Gotta get through Friday. I have a lot to do and am in a serious state of I don’t wanna.

How are you all doing. Cold this morning. Then stupidly hot once that burns off.

That was good! I really like their twitter account. Why can’t we have personality?

Annoys me to no end that the Bruins twitter is so dull.
Knights twitter is A+. Love the “cheeky new team” approach.

My experiences with going to other hockey arenas has made me realise that everything about the fan experience with regards to the Bruins is dull. I thought opening night for the Bruins would have some pizzazz and it didn’t. The Avs home opener the other night was pretty great. IW took video.

I saw this on the NHL’s facebook page this morning and one of the comments said, “wholesome!” and I laughed, because Pastrnak is super wholesome.

Morning, pals.

  • I was nowhere near ready for frost today. I wasn’t even planning to wear sleeves. Welcome to October. Sigh.
  • I need to get my skates sharpened either at lunch or after work. Skating on butter knives right now, and that’s no good.
  • comment image

  • BU has a two game series against Minnesota State tonight and tomorrow. I can’t make tomorrow’s, but I’m hoping for a win tonight. They have sweet uniforms even though their mascot is a little weird (Mavericks).
  • Not feeling it today, and we have inventory. Woof.

    Hey, anybody can skate on sharp skates. You’re going to take all the challenge out of it!

    Don’t just get’em sharpened, get’em serrated! Instead of butter knives, try skating on steak knives!

    Good Morning!

    It’s Friday the 13th during October. You know what that means????

    Spoiler
    Nothing. It means absolutely nothing.

    Also, it is too cold outside and in my office. I demand a re-do of this day already.

    It means it’s time for us all to go to work in our replica Gerry Cheevers masks?

    Spoiler
    Because it’s like the Friday the 13th Jason Voorhees mask, only cooler.

    If you watch Friday the 13th backwards
    The movie’s about a buff hockey player who resurrects people with machetes.

    Martin Hanzal got a 5-minute major for this head shot on Yannick Weber:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-ur7mLWFcI

    Hanzal has a previous suspension, so presumably he’ll miss a couple games for this one.

    Side note: seeing “Weber” in a Predators box score is confusing.
