Morning Free Association: Shark Infested…er…Ice?

Last night’s game was pretty exciting and the Bruins were in it to win it!

Fuck yeah!

First Period:

Anton Khudobin showed that he had some rebound control issues early but seem to settle down during the period, most notably when he was able to scoop the puck to his own teammates. At one point, he made an amazing, almost acrobatic save after the puck went off his left pad. He reached back and got the puck before it got far in the paint.

The best part of the period is when recent call-up Danton Heinen pushed toward the net and scored his first NHL goal off a pass from David Backes. The best part about it – it was a short handed goal.

Second Period:

By the middle of the second period, Bruins 4th line center Sean Kuraly had committed three penalties. The Bruins penalty kill units had been successful twice, but the third one definitely wasn’t the charm. During a scramble in front of the Boston net, former Bruin Joe Thornton got a piece of the puck and scored a PPG with only six seconds elapse on the tiny power play clock.

Danton Heinen decided that he needed to take the game back into his own hands again, scoring his second career NHL goal and his second of the night less than three minutes later. Good things happen when you play at the net.

Third Period:

Boston led in penalties throughout the game, which understandably made fans a bit edgy. The last two penalties, which may or may not have been weak calls against David Pastrnak and Brandon Carlo, called for two huge penalty kills which left most of us like this:

Nail biting

And in the end, it was all worth it. The Bruins came up big, protected their one goal lead, and won the game. Khudobin played more consistently than he has been and while he still has rebound control issues, he was able to work through them. The Sharks might have been the one making impressive defensive plays while stopping two breakaways by Pasta and Brad Marchand but they could manage to get more than one goal. All in all, it was a good win by the cubs (and the older bears too).

Hiya,

exciting match. some positives, some negatives. Dobby needs to be the starter! (joking, joking, don’t attack me. but he had a fantastic game)

NHL.tv decided to pack up after the first period so I’ve just caught up with the rest but at least that forced me to go to bed at a semi-sensible time!

Everything about this headline is hilarious:

Hey Pals!
Listened for awhile last night. Rangers on the telly at the rink, of course.
Single game last night. We didn’t get started until 9:40. Had to wait for shattered glass repair. Long night.
We are paddling tomorrow! It’s been awhile. Too much work ( any amount is too much!) Heading into NY for the very fun Mongaup River.

To steal from the comment section of another site:

What’s the difference between the Habs and the Titanic?

One’s old, rusty, and at the bottom of the Atlantic. The other one’s a boat.

  • Stayed up late working on this move.
  • With that… for a person who wears like five things, I have a LOT of clothes. I keep sorting them out and donating some, but I can’t seem to donate enough. Really annoying and it’s got me like…

    clips make it look like a fun game, shame i missed it. I like what Heinen is doing away from the puck, bruins have needed a player like that since the Dr. was in. Hope he keeps it up to make the Coach make a hard decision.

    Morning!

    -I had the game on almost the whole night, yet I was too busy and realized I never really saw any of it. That’s a bummer.
    -Love seeing the kids be the difference maker. Maybe the Bruins future is bright.
    -I have a family Halloween party tomorrow. I don’t think we’ve ever done a family Halloween party. I’m not sure how to feel about this.
    -I have no desire to work today. I am still too tired.

    Happy Friday everyone! We made it.
