Morning Free Association: Dead Wings

Embed from Getty Images

The Bruins played to yet another packed house at the Pizza Box last night. Seriously, how much longer are they going to keep up this charade that fans who paid for seats are so mesmerized by the new arena that they’re watching the game in the restaurants sprinkled around the concourse? SMH.

First Period:

Not much happened in this period and everyone should be glad about that.

Second Period:

The guy with no vowels in his last name

Martin Frk scored his first goal in some 5280 games or something (ok, it was more like 10 or 11 or 18) because of course. If you’re a dude who hasn’t scored in a long time, you probably want to play against the Bruins.

(Yes, I know his name is pronounced in some dumb way, I just always call him Frick in my head)

Anyway, that one was a power play goal after Charlie McAvoy was sent to the box. Nobody wants a Charlie in the box.

It took about ten minutes for the Bruins to rebound and score when Sean Kuraly took it into his own hands.

He would be the first of the Bruins scorers with last names that start with K. You could even call them the Bruins. Uh, maybe not. Anyway, David Krejci scored shortly after that one.

It’s just too bad that Torey Krug, wearer off the second A last night in his “hometown” didn’t net one of his own.

Third Period:

Danton Heinen scored the game winner nearly mid-way through the third.

Frans Nielsen decided that he wanted to be a hero bringing Detroit to within one. With the Wings’ net empty and six attackers in the Bruins defensive zone, Tuukka made a few great saves, the defense staved off the opponents and despite a couple of attempts to hit the empty net but yielding an icing each time, the Bruins managed to get the win.

Thump those chests!

  • Last night I had to leave for the rink in the middle of the game. Before I left, I went to the bathroom and it was 1-0 Detroit. Came out of the bathroom and it was 2-1 Bruins.
  • Missed the rest of the game because I was skating. Still very iffy and not confident about my crazy hockey idea. I don’t know what my plan is or if I’m sticking with it or what.
  • Two people out today, and an office scandal that we were trying to make NOT come to a head, might be coming to a head. I’m really flustered.

    Woke up in the middle of the night with raging heartburn. So of course I’m having chili for lunch today because I am not a smart person.

    Been there & done that! I love spicy foods, but they don’t always love me back. That’s what proton pump inhibitors are for. Better living through chemistry!

    Cassidy was certainly the right choice to coach the cubs and turn them into super cubs.

    Supposedly a bear cub, according to giphy! But it looks more like a little murderous killing machine of death. Or more accurate, Chara as an infant. lol

    Whatever it is it doesn’t look particularly impressed!

    Cassidy’s AHL coaching experience has definitely served him well in the new, youth-obsessed NHL. I think Claude had gotten a little too set in his ways. These days, a high degree of adaptability is a must. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a marked increase in NHL teams picking new coaches from among the AHL ranks in the coming seasons.

    He has been pretty spectacular. As well as making great plays he rarely makes mistakes or dumb plays, either.

    Morning all. Of course all the fun happens after I go to bed but waking up to a win is always the best part of waking up. Screw Folgers!

    Hey Pals!
    This is reminding me of a twilight zone where a gambler dies and in the afterlife always wins. After a while, he finds it boring and wants to go to ” the other place ” because winning all the time is driving him nuts. The attendant he’s talking to tells the gambler – ” this IS the other place!”. If winning all the time is hell, I’ll take it!
    Hoping my game gets canceled as I just brought the car to a shop for repairs. Doh!
    Forgot I have a game today!!! (I was going to watch bruins in two…. AGAIN!!!!) Saw it last night. That’s why je suis fatigue!!!
    Coffee or sleep, that is the question.
    Stay tuned for the answer!!!!!
