Morning Free Association: Flaming the Flames

I’m so glad we have Brad! Seriously, who do you want to give the puck to in overtime?

Tuukka hung on in a game from which he really needed to have a solid win after allowing four goals on nine shots on Saturday night in Vancouver. In the final period as Jack continued to warn about Johnny Gaudreau being out on the ice, I worried more that Dougie would do something stupid, like scoring, and wished that Spooner had taken the opportunity to just knock him over and take the puck. But I didn’t have to worry, I just had to go and let Brad.

Tonight, the B’s are on Edmonton to take on the Spill Oil and their hideous orange jerseys. I used to like them before the Adidas hostile takeover of uniform manufacturing which led to ugly jerseys in Nashville (bright mustard jerseys that look like practice Jerseys), New Jersey (yes, I understand hem stripes now), and Edmonton (the orange is too bright for that much darker blue, yuck). Hopefully the cubs can contain them.

Does Iggy’s presence in PVD indicate some sort of preference on his part? Or does he live in the area in the off-season?

Apparently he was looking for somewhere to practice and the Bruins said he could he Providence. Can you imagine being a P-Bruin coming to practice and, like, Iginla’s there?

He lives in Chestnut Hill, so this makes perfect sense to get some ice time.

Did he drop the hyphenated name thing? He used to be known as Dick Hertzfrum-Holden.

I liked O’Gara. I thought he played well last time up. Rangersd are cleaning house, it’s a good depth move.

So I ordered a book. Came in the mail at work today. Some idiot got a little too excited with a box cutter, but it was all too fitting.

Morning, hockey pals!

  • Hope everyone had a good Presidents’ Day weekend!
  • comment image?itemid=5032199

  • I missed overtime because I was at my friend’s house booking flights so she would stop bugging me about our weekend trip to DC coming up next month.
  • In order to get my hockey up to speed, I joined a second learn to play. What is my deal?
  • Going to be busy at the office this week. We always pay dearly for the day we get off.

    Ooo, have fun! I need to go back to DC. I really enjoyed walking around and looking at historical shit.

    I’m trying to convince my non-hockey friend to catch a Caps game so I can take that off my list of arenas.

    The second one is more of a skills clinic focused on skating, and the first one is the learn to play that turns into a team. Yay! And, rink tonight. A+.

    Uncharacteristically and eye-gougingly bad turnover by Karlsson:

    I mean…like…it’s a highlight of a Predators goal and the footage starts with the camera zoomed in on Karlsson with the puck in his own end…yowza…

    The office is annoyingly hot today.
    As the proud occupier of a window seat, my office is one of the more temperate ones at a mere 82°F

    I’d hoped to leave early yesterday and catch the game the first time through, but nope. Walked in on the 3rd period to watch the B’s getting slapped around.
    Glad they pulled out the win. Tuukka looked awesome in 3rd & OT.

    Then I saw the rebroadcast of the 1st, and it was like watching a different team entirely. It’s like watching the game in the ‘machete order’

    Your disdain for Dougie may even beat my own. I love it.
