Morning Free Association: Game Day

Embed from Getty Images

Tonight the Bruins are back in game action down at the Prudential Center against the New Jersey Devils. The Devils lineup sports many familiar faces like ex-Bruins Jimmy Hayes and Drew Stafford. They also have “hometown” talent like Brian Boyle and Cory Schneider. It’s like Little Boston down in Newark.

Okay, not really.

As with any gamely situation, it’s necessary to go over who is in and who is out. Torey Krug and Brad Marchand are out and so is Ryan Spooner.

These guys have all been out for at least one game on the road and the team battled through. I’m sure they’ll be able to

Make it work

There’s no word on who will be the netminder tonight but I’d have to guess they’d ride the hot hand, Anton Khudobin.

The game is on NESN at 7pm. Be there for the Game Thread to talk turkey.

I only have one more thing to do before I can leave for the day and of course I just need to ask my boss a quick questions so I can finish it and of course a needy client has been taking all his time for the past hour.

Morning, pals!

  • Skated last night. Had a rough time because he just kind of had me doing lame drills, but I get when we were doing them because I have trouble with the really simple stuff and need to fix my form. I left there hurty and some girl was trying to make small talk and asked me if it was my first time. I was nice but highly offended on the inside.
  • I also fell down the stairs inside my house this morning. Like, 4 steps, maybe, and landed kneeling on my bad knee. Awesome!
  • Maybe this will be like when people on TV get amnesia and it’ll knock everything back to where it’s supposed to be.
  • That thing from yesterday that my awesome boss had my back on… well, the same guy emailed me this morning to say it was a huge improvement and it took all I had not to respond with

  • Speaking of my awesome boss, he was asking how the living arrangements are going. I told him I caught my roommates watching Alf last night. His response: “Gordon Shumway? Melmac?” – clearly I’m in the right place, workwise and apartment-wise.

  • I don’t know why I didn’t know about this already.

  • Three coworkers asked me to do an indoor bike relay with them. ????

    No kidding. But I think it was mainly because we were doing dumb drills.

    Sabres Winter Classic jersey. Mostly like it, no laces is throwing me off.

    Also, that background is odd choice to showcase the jersey.

    Yeah, if they weren’t going to do laces they should have made it a crew neck like the B’s one.

    Oh yeah, forgot to tell you all. On Monday I went to the Bruins event at the Garden for season ticket holders. 100th anniversary of the NHL thing, with various old timey memorabilia on display. All of the Bruins were on hand for photo ops with the fans, along with various B’s alumni like Brickley, Bourque, Marcotte, and Lemelin.

    I got to check out the B’s locker room, and along the top of the wall they have pictures of all the former Bruins who’ve made it into the Hall of Fame. A really nice touch is the very last one – Pat Burns.

    Oh, cool! Was wondering if were feeling well enough again to go to that. The Bruins locker room looks really slick.

    I could be dead and would be feeling well enough to go to that.
