10/16/17 Morning Free Association: A Tale of Two Teams

Embed from Getty Images
This weekend the Bruins played back to back games. The first game against the Coyotes was all sorts of fun and awesome! Chara was in Papa Bear mode. Six different Bruins scored goals, included Bjork scoring his first NHL goal. It was great and everyone was happy.

Then the Bruins went to Vegas and completely forgot how to hockey.

They couldn’t shoot the puck, they couldn’t play in their own zone, and pretty much looked the very opposite of Saturday night. It was a sloppy effort all around.

Vegas took advantage of this and the reinforcements, Tuch and Shipachyov, scored their first NHL goals. Old friend Subban notched his first NHL win and Vegas fans went home happy.

McQuaid too a shot to leg from former Bruin Colin Miller and was down on the ice for about 30 seconds before being helped down the tunnel. CAssidy said he will be re-evaluated over the next couple of days. Spooner also left the game with a lower body injury.

Here’s hoping they leave the bad play behind in Vegas and better games are ahead. Please come back Bergy, we miss you.

What’s on tap?

Ugh, I wish that the team would have played better on the road this week.

Y’know, we’re gonna have these games. We have a bunch of very young and inexperienced players and we’re just gonna get those nights where their heads aren’t screwed on straight. Especially nights on the road in the 2nd game of a back-to-back.

Yes, we let Malcolm Subban go for nothing and of course he beat us because that’s how karma works and that’s our mojo against backup goalies. So what. Good on Malcolm – he needed a change of scenery and I hope Vegas works out great for him.

My hope this season is that we go .500-ish for the first half of the year and then players start clicking with each other and building off of what they’ve learned.

Hi folks. Been a while.

Good for Subban to get his first career win. Wish him the best. HockeyTwitter. go get laid, smoke a bowl, have a few drinks at the bar, do something to chill out, because you’re miserable and it makes me not want to hang out with you. For the good of our friendship, please do something to make yourself happier, because you’re driving me away with your constant miserableness and outrage.

All being said, what is Beleskey bringing to the table right now? I didn’t watch anything this weekend, but from snipits I do see / twitter, it’s not much

I really wish the Sens would put Karlsson on IR, it’s screwing with my fantasy team.

How do you put a player on IR? Keeper is on IR, but I can’t figure out how to do that on the fantasy site.

Good morning, pals!

  • I really hate that last night’s game is going to be sold as “look what the Bruins gave up in Malcolm Subban”, when we all know full well that had they created any traffic in front of the net and scored early, he likely would have caved completely.
  • That’s not a knock on Malcolm because we all know he’s a good athlete – it’s more that he has lacked confidence completely in the past and has a history of falling to pieces once a goal is scored against him.
  • I’m moving to Dedham on 11/1 and I am so sad about it. I also have packed nothing.

  • So, we have three injured centers – somehow the one who is always hurt is currently OK – and McQuaid is probably out for a bit. Oh, and Acciari. Welcome to the NHL, Robthew O’Grzelcyk!
  • Why can’t they give a consistent effort? I don’t get it at all.

  • Hockey twitter was indeed a dumpster fire of hurt feelings last night. Who has the energy to be offended by everything? Jesus. Go do something productive with your life, like pack my apartment up. Thanks.

    Hey Pals!
    Missed all the hockey/ not hockey this weekend. Beautiful weather up north.
    I believe the Bs will get it together. I didn’t really think they would be 84 – 0. That’s not realistic. 80 – 4 is more likely.
    And, of course Subban got his first W. As expected.
    Working today. Big money lined up for next weekend – twelve games, two days. I’ll be royalty! – Count de Money!!!!!!!
    Actually working today – boo!
