Morning Free Association: The Bruins Rise From the Dead

Embed from Getty Images

Tonight’s game is down in the Big Apple against the New York Rangers. Patrice Bergeron, looking perfect as usual, traveled with the team as expected because while he was once one of the walking wounded, he is able to walk and skate and take contact, unlike other players.

Yesterday we had a lot of fun talking about how the Bruins are starting to rise from the dead, or the mostly dead.

Mostly dead

As it turns out, Ryan Spooner was skating the other day. David Krejci, who was recently placed on IR with a nebulous back injury, also was on the ice at Warrior Ice Arena.

That's wonderful

(I hope that Phony and Sis actually did watch the Princess Bride last night and that the London Bear grabbed a copy of the book for his bear cub.)

Noel Acciari and Anton Khudobin are traveling with the team. Cassidy said that Acciari is out versus the Rangers but could figure into the lineup on Friday at Toronto. Khudobin will back up Tuukka tonight if he’s feeling up for it. Even though Zane McIntyre was sent down to Providence, it doesn’t take long to get from Rhode Island to New York should the need arise.

As reported shortly after the game on Monday, Brad Marchand did not travel with the team.

Another item that was reported by a sports outlet was possible news of the 2019 Winter Classic. Word is it will be the Blackhawks against the Bruins at the Notre Dame Football stadium.

We’ll have to follow up on that after November 18th.

Hi folks,

I haven’t bought the book yet, but it may well find its way into Little Bear’s Xmas stocking …

Tonight’s game is on a new channel called FreeSports. As the name suggests it’s free, but sadly my TV can’t seem to tune into it. Doubly bad is that as it’s being broadcast here I’ll be blacked out of NHL.TV.

It’s a 1am start though so I wouldn’t have seen much of it anyway.

Had a lovely morning with the missus and off to play darts soon. Sure beats working – even in the new office!

Darts at, what? noon? I hope there is alcohol involved. Go get ’em!

We’ve found our play tends to get better for the first four beers but then we have to avoid going “over the cliff” and losing all coordination!

Hey kids!

  • I also did not watch The Princess Bride last night. Sigh.
  • I also didn’t make it to the rink because I didn’t have pants with me.
  • Danny Paille got blown to smithereens in the German league.
  • Roy Halladay, brutal.
  • No cable box yet. Game at Mamma Mahoney’s, which you know will be entertaining because she yells things like. “YOU SON OF A BITCH, GET AWAY FROM HIM!” “THAT’S NOT NICE!” “LEAVE HIM ALONE!” and the classic, “BOBBY ORR DID THAT BETTER, AND ALL THE TIME!”.

    Please see GH’s Michael Ontkean gif from yesterday’s MFA.

    Spoiler
    Ooops!
    I won’t bring up the fact that I have ice skated naked.

    Morning all. Alas, I did not watch Princess Bride last night. Ended up watching MLB Network and their Roy Halladay coverage and had all the sads last night.

    Hey Pals!
    Slept in this morn. Didn’t get off the ice until midnight. I should have slept more!!!
    Bs – Rags game should be on at the rink tonight. I’ll have one eye on the game I’m reffing, and one on the game I care about!
    Coffee – yeah, coffee!
