Morning Free Association: Duck Hunt in reverse

We might have wanted a result similar to this:

We didn’t get that.

Perhaps the result might have been different had Krejci been in, but he wasn’t and Jordan Szwarz is still playing second line center. Nothing against him but he’s not the guy who started the season.

Peter Cehlarik was playing Bergy’s left wing and debuted his new number, 22. It’s not the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything but it’s probably better than his old number, 83.

First Period:

Of course a Duck rookie scores his first ever NHL goal on Tuukka Rask. Kevin Roy

Second Period:

A great save by John Gibson on a Riley Nash shot has him breakdancing like it’s 1983.

Danton Heinen ties it for the B’s nearly halfway through the period.

Of course, this would last for approximately 6 minutes. Keeping with the “first” theme, Josh Manson scored his first goal in 25 games, or since March of last season, to give the Ducks the lead once again.

With only 46 seconds to go, Nick Ritchie scores his first goal in 10 games, making the Ducks lead two goals, 3-1.

They only allowed 3 shots by Anaheim, unfortunately 2 made it into the net.

Third Period:

And then Corey Perry scores.

Honestly at this point, I stopped watching and caring.

Riley Nash had a breakaway chance and was stopped by Gibson twice, once on the original shot, again on the rebound.

Noel Acciari scores a garbage time goal at 19:38 (hey, his first goal on the season), making it 4-2, Ducks. I’m really tired and want to go to bed now.

Is he going to start punching the crap out of people, like the last guy to wear the number?

Who doesn’t enjoy watching Matt Cooke get punched in the face.

Well, the result was annoying but it’s hard to be too bummed about the performance. I think that’s the best I’ve seen the Bs play this season. That Kuraly line are really fulfilling their role. You can trust them to be out there and causing trouble so the top line can get some rest.

Hopefully Krejci is back tonight. Kings on a bit of a losing run at home!

9-4 defeat at darts last night. Once again a close game but they hit their finishes better than us.
Judging from the Whatsapp group this morning the boys had quite a night after I left. No-one lost their shoes but between them they managed to lose two sets of darts, a book and a drill! Happily they all turned up this afternoon – one of the lads took them home, stashed them and then couldn’t remember it when he woke up.

and a drill!

Because whenever I got a bar I always make sure to bring a drill.

Better to have one and not need it than the other way round!

Morning all. Had a dream last night where I went out to take a walk and all of a sudden a bunch of baby elephants and little lion cubs were coming the other way AND THEY WERE SO CUTE AND ADORABLE AND LITTLE! Even Freddy Kruger (who was chasing a dog down the street) stopped and smiled at all the cuteness.

If you are ever in (or anywhere near, really!) Allentown, PA. For the lover of God, stop here!. A necessary side trip if you visit Williamsport or have ever seen a baseball game.

I wasn’t aware that God had taken a lover!

Hey Pals!
The first ten minutes of the period that was previously unnamed needs to be bottled and added to every game for sesenta minutos.
No rest for the wretched this week. Lots of late night hockey. Of course, if last night was an accurate sample, no need to lose any sleep over the road trip.
Did my game alone last night. I get time and a half for doing games alone. The theory is that the teams shouldn’t pay full price for one ref – even if said ref has to work three times as hard. Whatevs.
Double tonight! I’ll have a young,fast partner tonight so I won’t have to cover every line and both nets.
I’m rereading and it’s sending me back to bed. Naptime!!!!

It can replace the final minute of every period!

Good lord, yes. Whenever I hear the ‘one minute remaining in the period’ announcement, I am filled with dread for how they are going to fail to protect the house.
