Morning Free Association: The Start of Another Week

The ending to that last game against the Kings was less than desirable. After playing two period and much of an overtime period under an one-all tie, Torey Krug iced the puck. The officials had a confab and decided that while LA took their timeout to buy Anze Kopitar time to breathe, they should put 0.5 seconds back on the clock. The Bruins had three players on the ice at the time of the icing, none of which was a center, so David Pastrnak had to prevent Kopitar from winning a face-off cleanly in the Bruins defensive zone. This didn’t happen and the Kings scored the winning goal in under a second.

Ty Anderson has more to say about this and the game here.

My take: they were lucky to walk away with a point after a game with the Kings. I expected an outright loss.

Now, it’s time to move on to Columbus. No seriously, the team is there now awaiting their game tonight against the Blue Jackets. We found out two pieces of news: Tuukka Rask will be in net tonight and Zane McIntyre will be backing him up.

Get well soon Dobby.
