Morning Free Association: A Well-Oiled Machine

Last night, the Bruins played the Oilers at the TD Garden. It was the fourth game for the Bruins in this young season but only the second for the Oilers, who opened their season playing an international game in Sweden.

It looked like the Oil might have come to play when Connor McDavid scored early in the first. After that, it was all Bruins. Two of the Bruins four goals were of the power play variety scored in the first period by David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand. And Pasta’s goal was sick.

However, the goals were only part of the story:

  • There was punchisizing
  • Glass dislodging
  • Save making by both goalies and defensemen
  • (He had an opportune poke check of Connor McDavid, preventing a shot on goal)

    Brandon Carlo was having a good night. Sure, he slipped early in the first when passing the puck up the ice. Jack Edwards said that he “stepped on a snow snake”. Late in the game, with the Oilers net empty and wide open, Brandon Carlo did this:

    My poor boy!

    It’s okay, perfect Patrice was able to make a shot on that open net soon afterward to seal the game.

    Morning guys.

    Great game – it had it all! Sick moves, great defending, fights, some guy getting his cap knocked off by a falling pane of glass!

    Gotta love how the Bs have responded to opening night.

    Halak’s GAA dropped to 0.5. Gah, must do better. Twitter trolls would be calling for his head if it was Tuka!

    Tomorrow’s game is a Brit-friendly time, but I’ll be at the theatre, where Little Bear is performing with her dance/theatre group. They started work on the show 18 months ago! She’s nervous but I’m sure it’ll be great.

    To those of you going to the game tomorrow: hope you have a great one and that we get the result we want!

    Hey Pals!!!
    A well oiled machine, indeed! There is hope!! Grizz made some errors, but played well, defended well. John Moore was a terrific aquisition. As a GM, i’ve had my eye on him for a few years now.
    Okay, Pasta. Disgusting!!!! How would you like to be a d man or goalie trying to stop that??? Yeah, no thank you!!!
    Take me to the river!!!! Boat is on the car. I’ll be in the water by 10:15. Woo hoo!!!!!
    Special coffee!!!!!!
