Morning Free Association: Breakup Day

It was Bruins breakup day at Warrior Ice Arena yesterday where several players took the time to talk to the media before they o their separate ways for the summer.

Among other things, we learned that Patrice Bergeron was experiencing some concussion like symptoms that caused him to miss the fourth game of the Toronto series. Bergy also battled a groin injury in the beginning of the season that recurred later on in the season and playoffs. That couldn’t make taking face-offs very fun.

Captain Zdeno Chara suffered a broken right index finger in the first series and a shoulder injury late in teh regular season. Yet, he still played bog time minutes.

Speaking of shoulder injuries, Jake DeBrusk suffered a AC joint injury from that collision in . I’m sure it was nagged by his having to drag line mates David Krejci and Rick Nash up and down the ice.

Like his usual pairing partner of this season Brandon Carlo, Torey Krug suffered a broken ankle that won’t require surgery. Brandon Carlo says he’ll be walking within the next week.

Birthday boy Riley Nash revealed that he indeed had a concussion after the friendly fire puck to his head that required a million zillion stitches (okay, like 40). David Backes suffered another concussion in game 5 on Sunday after an injury plagued season.

Finally, Brad Marchand was also suffering from a groin injury that won’t require surgery, only some rest. He spoke with the press about his on ice behavior in loose terms stating that he needs to realize how this affects his team and that he needs to be better.

Tuukka also spoke with media. Ty Anderson had a great piece about his thoughts on criticism in sports, how he doesn’t pay attention to that noise but he does understand what fans say and why they do. Tuukka keeps it real.

“At the other end, Lehigh Valley netminder Alex Lyon made an astonishing 94 saves in the marathon game.”

Morning all. Me trying to have an innocent conversation last night:
Me: Is your girlfriend going to work at the cheese shop again now that the mountain’s closed?
Him: I don’t know. We’re not actually really together anymore.
Him Again: She’s in rehab right now.

THIS IS WHY I DON’T ASK ABOUT SIGNIFICANT OTHERS!

What the hell is “not actually really together”? You’re either together or you’re not.

Who knows. I stopped asking questions after the “She’s in rehab” bit. Figured it was best to just bow out of the conversation.
