Morning Free Association: December 15

Bruins – Caps is one of those matchups that you don’t quite want to see. Good thing is that this season series is now 2/3 over!

First Period:

Early on, Zdeno Chara took Tom Wilson aside and let him know that he wasn’t taking his shit.

Lars Eller thought he scored but the Bruins video review team knew otherwise and spotted the offside Capitals player (it was Brett Connolly) so the game remained scoreless with NO GOAL joining Washington.

Later on, though, Jakub Vrana put the Caps on the board for reals this time late in the period.

Capitals took a 1-0 lead into the intermission.

Second Period:

Early in the second, Jakub Vrana went to the penalty box for holding Brad Marchand’s stick (#B2BAfterDark). Patrice Bergeron figured it was the perfect time to capitalize on his error. Note that Alex Chiasson submarined Bergy just after he let the puck rip.

This wouldn’t last. Nicklas Backstrom scored his own PPG after Charlie McAvoy was called for hooking.

Brad and Dmitry Orlov got into a scuffle at the end of the second.

At least it became matching roughing penalties.

Caps 2, B’s 1.

Third Period:

We can’t have nice things.

Alex Chiasson scores twice to make the score 4-1. David Krejci and Bergy score garbage time goals with Khudobin pulled. In between those, Alex Ovechkin scores an improbable empty netter. Bruins lose by 2, 5-3.

Remember when we couldn’t even score on Holtby? Well, we can do that now. Someday, the Bruins will win against the Caps just not yesterday.

So if a team claims Beleskey, is hockey twitter gonna complain that the Bruins lost something for nothing?

Hell yes.
In fact, they will complain that we got nothing for him, while simultaneously claiming that he was a useless component of the team.
Then someone will follow the chain of picks & trades all the way back to the Seguin trade, explaining how the Bruins have therefore traded Seguin for a handful of beans and sorrow.

Hello folks,

Don’t come too near – I seem to have succumbed to the cold that has afflicted everyone else I know.

Didn’t see the game – couldn’t find a decent stream. The highlights seemed to suggest it was a fairly even game – Caps just managed to find the net more often?

During the Detroit game, did you notice when the puck ended up on top of the goal they played the song “How Bizarre” over the PA. I laughed outloud at that. Little things…

Have a great weekend!

Shots heavily favored the B’s and we had numerous golden chances that we just couldn’t convert. Honestly, I thought it was a really fun game despite the loss.

Hey hockey pals!

  • Our section was a total shitshow last night. I am very surprised nobody punched anybody. We had an entire row of like 23ish year old bros and hoes doing shots and acting pretty shitty (total breach in hockey etiquette). After several requests such as “sit down, I can’t see”, someone was less than diplomatic with them and two of the bros took exception. One idiot wanted to fight the guy who undiplomatically dropped the C-bomb. A longtime season ticket holder and institution in our section swooped down to his row (literally swooped) and sat next to him. She babysat him for the entire third period. Kid didn’t move a muscle. didn’t even clap when we scored. Hilarious. With that, I really hate the bro / selfie / vape crowd. HATE.
  • And why do people think it’s acceptable to vape in an arena? Get it together, people!
  • Not a great game last night. Defense was lacking. Dobby was decent despite letting four goals in.
  • It’s Friday and I need to get my shit together now.

    There are very few things more annoying than paying good money to go to an event only for it to be ruined by morons near you.

    Hey Pals!
    Bruins were due for a loss and the Caps have been their bette noir of late. This could be one of those seasons where they lose all regular season games against a team, then shock them in the playoffs! Yes, I dream big.
    I think Caps fans would be happier if they matched up against the ‘Guins as well as they do the Bs .
    I lined two girls games yesterday and the knee wasn’t horrible. New brace is awesome! Lining a girls game today, Reffing girls high school tomorrow. I dumped a couple boys games until I feel more comfortable.
    Jo goes to Miami for the weekend (bee-aach). I have tons of work to do so…. FINE!
    Mo cawfeeeeeee!!!!

    Was consumed! No wax ( last night, anyway). I remember when wax referred to records(the music kind).
