Morning Free Association: From Rags to Rags

It’s never fun to watch a game on NBCSNOMGWTFBBQ, especially when the game is at 8pm (later for others east of us) and the clock changes have us all tired because it’s dark too early. Let’s get to the game.

First Period:

The Bruins held their own for nearly a half of a period until Pavel Buchnevich swerves and roofs one on Tuukka.

Pasta took little time to return fire on Lundqvist, scoring just 21 seconds later. With this goal he takes the team lead in goals with 9. Patrice bounced the puck wide of the net, bouncing it off the dasher to a waiting Pastrnak.

About four minutes later, Jimmy Vesey would score the first of back-to-back goals on a gassed Bruins unit. The second goal was just 29 seconds later.

This isn’t to say that the Bruins were complete slouched. Tuukka made some great saves, including a sweet kick save of which there is no video. Poor Tuukka.

Second Period:

Not much happened this period. No one scored. It was pretty lackluster. Daylight savings time changes made everyone in this house sleepy.

Third Period:

Trying to stay alert for this one, I swear.

Oy, on this Bruins power play they look like the Keystone Bruins.

Lundqvist decided to become a wall and stoned Bergeron. After the TV timeout, Bergy tried, tried again and scored on his screen. Bruins within one, 3-2.

The Bruins Twitter account needs to stop doing this, using screen captures from the NHL18 or whatever game. You have real footage of his perfection, use that instead.

Tuukka made a beautiful save after a bad turnover by Bergy in the defensive zone. Even the perfect make mistakes sometimes. Just kidding, they don’t.

Jack Edwards, who all were painfully aware that he wasn’t calling this game, had some commentary.

Thanks, Jack.

Bruins go on the power play when Danton Heine is hauled down in front of the Rangers net. And it looks like they aren’t. Then, they really weren’t when Pasta was called for Hooking Steve Nash.

The last two minutes are frantic and the Bruins are only able to get Tuukka off the ice with a minute to go. With 7.7 seconds to go, Rick Nash scores the empty net goal to seal the win for the Rangers.

I just typed a bunch of words, maybe 500 or so, depending on what the definition of word is, but Jack can sum it up better than I can.

While I have only 5 things I need to think aboout (oh hell I’ve got Canadian heritage I’ll keep it) at work today, I just wanted to pop in and say hello.

I was talking to Robyn last night and realized I have not been able to watch *A* hockey game in a very long time. I think the last one was THAT Buffalo game.

How are you all today? I’ve decided to listen to Radiohead this morning and am working on a cup of coffee. I haven’t had any inclination/inspiration to go grocery shopping so this morning’s breakfast was left over pizza. (BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza is SO DAMN good.)

Nothing wrong with last night’s pizza but the king of leftovers is Indian food. It’s even better reheated!

As long as it’s not Canadien heritage, it’s OK.

Hi Muse!! Thanks, I think I’ll break out the Radiohead, too. Been a while.

Hi all,

Shame about the result. We need some guys back from injury, pronto.
Jimmy frickin Vesey, eh?

I won’t be watching Friday’s game live either – got an early start Saturday, but hopefully will be able to watch “as live” before Saturday night’s game.

We took a proper hammering at darts last night. We played okay but couldn’t hit our winning shots. Disappointing, but at least the pub had Sam Adams on tap!

Haha! It was fantastic! They had a proper wood-fired pizza oven, and the beauty of it is the pub is only ten mins walk from our new office. We may become regulars!

Did he ever get his shoes back? I need closure on this story. grin

He did! He went to the pub where we left them a couple of days later and found them in “a dark, dark corner”

It would have been particularly painful for him to have lost them because last time we were out in that area someone walked off with his sweater!

There’s a wasp frozen on my deck railing. I don’t why but it really amuses me because it looks like it’s hanging on for dear life.

They’re talking about possible record-breaking lows overnight Fri-Sat. Low 20s or high teens.

Yup, talking 15 here in the NW CT hills. No need to go north, methinks.

  • They weren’t terrible, but they weren’t good. Tuukka was good.
  • Seriously though, some of those turnovers were total garbage.
  • The third period was a lot of fun, though. Lundqvist stood on his head.
  • I’m so tired. I crashed by the end of the second and still haven’t caught up.
  • Need to get my life together. What a wreck.
