Morning Free Association: A few days rest

Embed from Getty Images

Well, uh, that was a week of games, eh? They won against the Wild, then lost the last three, although it should be noted the penultimate game was an overtime loss, but they should have won it.

It’s hard to watch this team when they play like they did on Saturday. Hopefully, the rest between that game and the next one on Wednesday evening will be fruitful. Yes, this week is the dreaded West Coast road trip, which is early this season, starting in Anaheim on Wednesday and ending on Saturday in San Jose. Yep, three games in four days should be so fun. Well, that and the 10 or 10:30 (it varies) start time.

So. much. fun.

Anyway, how was your weekend? Did you lose in overtime on Friday night?

Thanks. Was trying to do a link from my Google Photos account but it was lacking the .jpg and thus came up as just a link.

Thanks. First time on skates at a free ‘learn to play hockey’ session.
In skating classes now and pretty impressive. $70 for 8 hour-long sessions and they gave us a bag with all the needed equipment (skates, kneepads, elbowpads, helmet, hockey gloves) to hold onto as long as needed. He outgrows something just swap it out for free…

Makes sense from a big picture standpoint cause there’s no way I’d shell out for all that gear without knowing if he is serious about playing.

He better be serious about playing, the Bruins could use him on this road trip.

Morning all. Star Wars Christmas wrapping paper is surprisingly a hit a baby showers.

Hey Pals!
A less than glorious weekend for the Bs.
Maybe the west (wrong) coast trip will help them bond? Or maybe I’m bound for the asylum as this team is driving me crazy (I think there’s a gif for that).
Great weekend with Jo. Date night Saturday, disc golf with my kid yesterday. Lots of together time.
We saw Murder on the oOrient Express. Yeah, Big in Japan is right, it was okay. I’m not recommending it.
Had ref training at Trinity College yesterday at the crack of Are you kidding? It’s not a rule change year for NCAA, and the Federation (high school) rule book only changed some wording. Yay! I already know EVERYTHING!!!!
Okay, probably enough coffee.

Morning, pals!

  • They were “okay” (as in just OK) Saturday until the wheels fell off completely in the third. I was appalled when I had to fork over ticket money postgame.
  • At least this happened.

  • Really glad they’re off til Wednesday, I don’t want to look at them right now!

  • Heard someone saying that they should consider making a goaltending change because Tuukka just seems done here, and that Khudobin is a number one goalie. “Someone else’s number one goalie, I hope,” was my reply. I love Dobie, but helllll no.
  • Likely going to be late. Why? Because I put my clothes in the dryer last night and never turned it on. Smart.

    I don’t get the ragging on Tuukka other than the fact when you lose its easiest (and laziest) to blame the goalie. I know a lot of people don’t like the salary but that’s not his fault. Even the defence isn’t THAT bad. They aren’t great either but about average.

    As it’s been for a couple of years now, lack of goals is the main problem. Leafs are one of the worst defensive teams in the league and we put 3 past them in over two hours of play.

    Only three teams in the league have fewer goals than the Bs and one of them has played fewer games.

    Obviously the injuries haven’t helped there but they need to pick it up.

    In no world anywhere is Khudobin a number one goalie. And I’m also trying to figure out how we’ve gone from “Must sign Pasta but the front office is the worst and will fuck it up and we’ll regret losing Pasta for the rest of our lives” to “PASTA IS THE WORST PLAYER EVER!”

    PASTA IS THE WORST PLAYER EVAH EVEN THOUGH HE’S LEADING THE BRUINS IN GOALS & POINTS!
