Morning Free Association: Pastrtrick!

If you turned the game off after the Hurricanes scored their 4th unanswered goal you were probably shocked to see the result today. Last night’s game started as a dull affair and turned into a crazy goalfest in the third. Hats went a-flying, QUOTA was achieved, and nearly 1/6th of the team didn’t make it until the end of the game but the Bruins pulled it off.

First Period:

It wasn’t all that exciting. I know that everyone thinks of the Hurricanes, immediately starts to sing the classic Scorpions song “Rock You Like a Hurricane” in their head and waits for the winds of change to whip them in two a frenzy for the wild ride that is a Canes game.

Our Bruins scored first in the first but it took Brad Marchand virtually all 20 minutes of it to get his 30th on the season. With that goal, he reached an important milestone.

Second Period:

It all fell apart on this period. Early in the period, David Pastrnak was called for hooking against Sebastian Aho, who would tie up the game on the power play.

In mid-period, Zdeno Chara sends the puck over the glass in the defensive zone and is called for Delay of Game. More than a minute into the initial penalty, Marchand gets called for tripping against Justin Faulk. Carolina would have a two man advatage for just 44 seconds. Teuvo Teravainen would only need 22 to score the go ahead goal. Justin Williams would cap off the scoring in the second, with the Canes taking a 3-1 lead into the third.

Third Period:

This is where it all changed. In the second the Bruins as a team were dragging. Jake DeBrusk was impaired after taking a hit in the second. Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug would end up leaving the ice in this frame. It couldn’t look any bleaker for the team after Brock McGinn scored a short handed goal less than a minute into the third.

This time around the ten-minute mark, the Bruins prospects for the game changed in rapid fashion. First, Matt Gryzelcyk netted his third on the year to make the score 4-2.

Less than a minute later, Pasta scored his first of three in the period.

Danton Heinen’s scoreless streak dried up 21 seconds later to tie up the game, 4-4.

And the Bruins were not done. Well, Pasta wasn’t done. After giving the Canes a five minute breather, David decided that it was time to win the game with not just one but two goals, including an empty netter for good measure.

QUOTA and another Bruins hat trick! Five unanswered goals by the Bruins in the third period! What is happening?

When the Flying Spaghetti Monster scores a hat trick, is it proper to throw colanders onto the ice?

I just LOVE the abrupt dip in the volume of his voice (and corresponding increase in its speed) as he goes from “Boston cried out to the heavens in great fruitless anguish.” to “The Bs scored 5 straight in the 3rd to win 6-4.” Feel much shame, Carolina fans. Feel much shame.

Apparently, he doesn’t actually know what fruitless means.

i took a screenshot of Haggs being wrong again cause its always funny. Twitter decided to remind me incase i missed it:
Brickley 10 hrs ago – If you changed the channel, you might want to come back to this game.
Haggs 11 hrs ago – That was ugly…..blah blah blah. 4-1 Canes. This one’s over baby.

Ursa Londonensis is the only one with an excuse for missing the end of the game.

It’s binomial nomenclature (a la Carolus Linnaeus) – the Genus-species format that’s become the scientific standard for naming every living thing.

But (1) it really should be in italics; (2) the proper ending for the genus name should be -us, not -a; (3) the species name shouldn’t be capitalized; and (4) the species name should be based on the Latin form of London’s name – Londinium. Thus: Ursus londiniensis.

Italics, of course!
Forgot about no caps, as well!
Thank you!!

Well that was crazy. I think I’ve worked out what happened. Before the game Pasta says :”I bet you all $100 we can not turn up for the first 50 mins but still hit quota!”

I heard in the highlights a reference to three players leaving the game but couldn’t find anything about it on bruins s Twitter so I assumed it was Canes players. What was that about?

Krug and DeBrusk exited, followed soon after by Z. DeBrusk, i think, was due to the face plant off the boards early on. Krug – no clue. Z fell awkwardly in the 3rd, twisted those mile long legs maybe?

yeah…i dont really care how many people get injured right now as long as they come back at least a week before playoffs to get back in game shape and get confidence going.

I figured it was more like Grizz’s goal set off light bulbs above everyone’s heads of the “Oh yeah, we’re supposed to be playing hockey here!” sort.

    I was thinking this morning reading the recap that the game was similar to my work day yesterday. Started dull, turned to crap, then sorted itself out at the end!

    Hey Pals!
    Wow! We were starting to think about changing the station when Grizz scored. Didn’t have to wait long afterward …… and there was much rejoicing (which is what? Joicing again?)!
    This team! I originally thought that the Bruins that headed to the locker room were just being given the rest of a lost game off, as a precautionary measure. Let’s hope none of those guys are seriously injured.
    Coffee, maybe some Bruins in 2!!

    Definitely joicing again.

    Let’s hope Z and Krug were just resting up since the outcome was an obvious loss (hah).

    I need coffee as well, extra bourbon please.

    and there was much rejoicing (which is what? Joicing again?)!

    Which begs the question – can you rejoice if you’ve never joiced before?

    We were starting to think about changing the station when Grizz scored.

    Likewise. And silently praying for Bergy’s swift return!
