Morning Free Association: Knights Fall

Embed from Getty Images

Last night in Las Vegas, the knights tried to fortify their series lead of one game with another win. Things did not go so smoothly for them.

Vegas scored first, with one time Golden Knights scoring leader James Neal making that first strike. Tuesday morning hot lap taker, Lars Eller became the hero this time around by tying up the game ten minutes later.

This game wasn’t going to be easy for the Golden Knights, especially not after Alex Ovechkin and Brooks Orpik scored. Yeah, when a defenseman who hasn’t scored a goal since 2016 nets one on you, things aren’t going your way.

Braden Holtby was on fire.

Shea Theodore would score one add one more to the goal tally for Vegas late in the second period but the damage was done. Knights fall 3-2.

One thing to add: we know that Tom Wilson needs a watch because he doesn’t seem to understand how to not hit someone late and we now know he needs glasses because he can’t seem to see that a player doesn’t have the puck, didn’t have the puck, and was nowhere near the player.

I guess both of those things are easier to replace than a brain.

Kuznetsov hit you say? What Kuznetsov hit?


Kusnetsov got hit early in the game and would not return. Even though he took a hard hit up high, it seems his left wrist got jammed up. Naturally Caps fans lost their minds, and Pens fans taunted Kuznetsov because of a goal celebration he performed several weeks ago.

While the Caps actually were more effective after he left the game, this could be a big factor if he is unable to perform in upcoming games. Kuznetsov has been the Caps’ leading scorer in the playoffs.

After watching that big hit on Kuznetsov a few times…ugh. Initial point of contact – head, check. Left his feet to make the hit, check. Objective of the hit was too physically punish opponent, rather than to separate him from the puck, check.

Man, people have this weird idea that I came to work today because I actually wanted to do my job. It’s annoying me.

I think the Conn Smythe should go to the skating camera operator during the Imagine Dragon’s performance. That’s some fucking talent!

Oh, we went to see them a couple of months ago. They were too quiet – you shouldn’t be able to have a conversation during a rock show!

Hi folks,

Highlights only for me again but it looked another cracking game. One of my workmates has family in Washington and we were talking about Game One yesterday. I told him I didn’t expect the rest of the series to be like that and that “there probably won’t be ten more goals in the whole rest of the series.” Looks like I was wrong!

Is that right McNabb didn’t even get a penalty for that hit? On the slow-mo looks like a charging/elbow/hit to the head take-yer-pick.

Working from home today as I had to wait for the delivery man to bring my new guitar. Exciting! But Mrs Bear says I have to sell one of the old ones because seven is too many, apparently. Pfffffff.

Morning all. Caught the last two periods. Wasn’t wearing my Knights t shirt so sorry, Vegas, that one’s on me. My bad. Loving this series so far, though.

Had to make some edits because it was late and there was a network problem when GH was putting the story up.

Awesome couple of games we’ve had so far.

Hey Pals!
Wow! There was some great hockey last night. The pace, Holy Smokes!.
My brother managed to get cable, so watched for the first time this season. Caps won, so he can keep watching from home. He called after the game and I listened to his drunk ass telling me all about the game,even though he can’,t remember anyone’s name. The Caps are only allowed manatee game victories from here on out!
Losing Kuznetsov might tip the scales to the Knight’s side, we’,’ll see!

That’s probably good about your brother being able to watch TV inside his home. Eventually there would be trouble when he had to install a beer-fridge in his truck. I’m told that the cops frown on that sort of thing. wink
