Morning Free Association: Flamed Out

It’s late, I’m cranky and I didn’t pay close attention to the game after getting home from my class. Let’s not mince words, the Bruins sucked in the first, got a little better in the second, and were pretty much neutralized in the third. At least the boys showed some fight there. Ugh.

It could have been far worse than the 5-2 result. I mean, the Bruins could have not have scored those two goals by Bergy and Brad. Oh yeah, Pasta could have had a goal, had NO Goal not shown up and been a drag. Apparently, NO GOAL forced Bergy to skate freely instead of drag his legs, making the whole play offsides. PATRICE THAT IS NOT NHL FIRST STAR OF THE WEEK PLAY!

Tuukka had a rough first period, being scored upon thrice. The first was from Michael Frolik who had been a healthy scratch the previous game. Then, of course, Johnny Gaudreau being on the verge of milestone (100 goals) was next. And to complete the Tuukka Trick, a first year player in his fifth NHL game needed to score that first goal, to announce that he was a hockey player in the best league in the world. Juuso Valimaki netted his first career NHL goal against fellow Finn, Tuukka Rask.

Of course, everyone’s most hated Boston Hockey Insider already had cut and paste this article by the end of the first frame.

But then, Tuukka was able to shore up and only allowed one more Michael Frolik goal in the second. And he made great saves in the third.

It’s frustrating to watch the team come out flat after a resounding win on Saturday. Hopefully, they’ll play better tonight against the Oilers.

Hiya,

I didn’t think it was that bad of a display. They got some good chances in the first but Mike Smith did a great job. The powerplay was pretty sloppy for some reason, though.

I reckon if they played the game again today there might be a different result. Which is good, because they ARE playing again today!

Morning, hockey pals!

The boys were messy last night. Let’s hope for a better showing tonight.
