Morning Free Association: Spanked

Embed from Getty Images

Last night, in the season opener, the Bruins were handily defeated by the Capitals 7-0. I didn’t see much of the game, only the third period. Still, it’s clear that something went terribly wrong when Tuukka was chased out of the net for letting in 5 goals on 19 shots. Ouch.

The Bruins didn’t have much fight tonight. Well, Brad did late in the game when he took exception to something Eller did, like being born or an ex-Hab.

How about we turn our attention to something else, like someone else who got a spanking.

Capitals forward Tom Wilson missed the opener and is due to miss 19 more games beyond that for an illegal check to the head of the Blues’ Oskar Sundqvist in the Caps’ final preseason game on Sunday.

Wilson apologists disagree with the suspension and will use anything to justify his on-ice behavior. Guys like this doucehcanoe who is a sports talk radio host.

Right. Obviously he means that Tom Wilson would single out Marchy and headshot him, right?

The Bruins get to try again tomorrow night. Tom Wilson won’t for many nights.

Against Buffalo, yeah you’re probably right. Although they’ll be better than in recent years and we struggled to beat them when they were crap!

Do over!

Hey guys, glad we got that out of the way.

Hoping to catch more of the season opener tonight than last night’s final pre-season game that absolutely does not count in the standings AT ALL.

Did you guys know Lyle Odelein was dying back in March, and miraculously healed after having three organs transplanted in one procedure? I always hated his face, but I just read a heartwarming Athletic article about him.

Well, I’m glad I didn’t stay up for that!

Watched some of it over breakfast – up until we went 4-0 down, then just watched the highlights.

Hey, it’s one game in an 82-game season. Not great, sure, but there’s a long way to go.

I haven’t delved into Bruins Twitter, as I’m not a masochist, but I’m guessing people were writing the season off two minutes into game one. And I’m sure Tuukka was to blame for the Bs failing to score a goal. Am I close?

The Bs probably fell asleep during all that pre-game nonsense. They’ll get it together tonight.

Stay away, stay very very far away.

And I’m sure Tuukka was to blame for the Bs failing to score a goal. Am I close?

Yup.

Let me sum up Bruins twitter right now

One game and I’m already sick of Bruins twitter. Already have a few distinct groups, with some overlap:
1. The “Trade Rask, he’s not 2011 Tim Thomas!” crowd
2. The holier-than-thou-loudly-griping-about-Marchand-not-being-a-saint people
3. The “I told you John Moore sucks!” club

Morning all. I heard something about hockey season starting last night but I think it was all dream. Hockey season starts tonight! Yeah, that’s it!

I gashed my finger in a door last night. Same finger I gashed with a knife a couple of weeks ago.
