Morning Free Association: Rivalry Night!

Embed from Getty Images

It seems like every game against the Rangers this season was played in New York. As it turns out, that wasn’t the case it just seemed like it because they were the stronger team the first two games. Not this time.

Andy Brickley was between the glass for this game wearing a bright gold tie. It was beautiful. I didn’t see it until he was talking to Zdeno Chara after the game.

First Period:

Last weekend, the New York Rangers picked up Cody McLeod off waivers from Nashville. It had people puzzled because the Rags seemed to be making questionable decision with their roster as there are numerous rumors that they will sell any player not bolted down. Anyway, at 2:42 Adam McQuaid and McLeod had some words with their fists.

At the five minute mark, the wrong Nash scored. he’s also on the trading block.

Thankfully, the correct Nash put the biscuit in the basket.

Anton Khudobin made some crazy saves.

Then, the Captain broke the tie.

Second Period:

How many more words do we have to describe how perfect, wonderful, and awesome Patrice Bergeron is? Bergy scores is 23rd goal on teh season, going five-hole on Henrik Lundqvist.

Nearly four minutes later, Tim Schaller scraps and scrapes down to the net to add to the score. That would be the end of King Henrik’s night in net after he let in 4 goals on 16 shots.

Charlie McAvoy went to the box for Interference at 9:31. That did not stop the Bruins from scoring. Bergeron scores his second on the night short-handed. This is beauty because Brad knows he’s getting stopped and he passes it to Bergy who had an opening.

Third Period:

With all this winning, one can become impatient if a goal isn’t scored every couple of minutes. Well, at least Pastrnak tried to shove himself in the goal as Brad shot a puck at his butt.

Sean Kuraly solved the non-scoring issue at 6:34 in the third when he scored his second goal in as many nights.

Cody McLeod decided to get a little too close and personal with Matt Grzelcyk and his defensive partner decided to teach him a lesson. While McQuaid would get the extra penalty for Roughing, it’s better to teach a lesson about roughing around smaller players.

And then not much else happened. Bergy had a shot at another hat trick with a scrum at the net but Pavelec was able to hold onto a little bit of his pride. The Bruins won 6-1.

Hold up, they won two games back-to-back without looking gassed nor letting up on the gas.

On top of everything else Bergy does perfectly, does he write sci-fi too?

Even with the 6-1 final, I kind of feel like Dobby stole that game for the Bs. It could easily have been 5 or 6 in the other direction by the end of the 1st if he hadn’t been so incredible.

Hey Pals!!
Wow Bruins!!!!
The Rags are done. Their body language says ” meh “.

Split double today – Westchester county at 330, Danbury Ice Arena at 9. Looks like dinner at Blazers Pub. It’s like Cheers – ten minutes after you get there, you know everybody – great food, too. Disclaimer: I have never seen a single episode of Cheers.
Coffee!!!

Once Shatty went down, the Rags knew it was over. Fire sale is a coming.

They already have openings – between the ears of certain committee members! House Intelligence is the ultimate oxymoron!
