Morning Free Association: The Road Trip Continues

Embed from Getty Images

The western leg of the current Canadian road trip is over. Thank the deity of your choice for it being over because it was very bad, horrible, and no good to only skate away with two points out of six, and those two points bother being loser points.

Tomorrow night, they will finish up (and hopefully mop the ice) with the Ottawa Senators, a team that they’ve already beaten, handily.

With injuries to Charlie McAvoy (possible UBI) and Kaven Miller (hand), Steven Kampfer and first year Urho Vaakanainen slotted into the defense. Vaakanainen basically arrived in Vancouver on no sleep, having played the previous night in Bridgeport before getting the call and hopping on two flights to get out to British Columbia.

He’ll be ready for tomorrow night, for sure.

Morning all. The Bruins schedule so far really isn’t working for me. The only game I’ve been able to watch is the one we went to. I’ll just keep telling myself it’s still the preseason until I can watch.

Given how they’ve been playing, I’d say that’s the best idea for all of us

Morning, hockey pals!comment image

  • So this hockey team of ours… getting hit by the injury bug. Hard.
  • Carlo had a good game and a terrible OT. THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE TO WIN IN THE FIRST SIXTY MINUTES, BRUINS!
  • Seriously though, I thought, “Three Western Canada teams? That should be three wins.” NARRATOR: It was zero wins.comment image?itemid=7210443
  • We are going to the World Series and I can’t friggin’ wait!
  • I will never understand the “I hate baseball” crowd. I get that they allow the pitchers a ridiculously long time to throw the ball, but other than that, what’s not to like?comment image

    P.S. – Wondering if maybe Donato needs to visit scenic Providence for a while. He has been good here and there but I think Bjork and Heinen have been better.

    The plan for Donato’s role had been “spectator” until Backes bowed out prior to the VAN game, so it sounds like Sweenius isn’t far from that.

    Hey Pals!!
    I made it to the end of the Vancouver game.Bruins played well enough to win, but they used a week’s worth of goals on Eye Dub’s birthday!!! There weren’t enough for the road trip. Nobody watches those games, anyway.
    5 games Friday night, 6 games Saturday evening. Went up north yesterday. Mostly sat on a chair groaning and occasionally handed a tool to the carpenter.Knees were swollen. Better today. Somewhat.
    Contractor is supposed to start on our roof today!! Yeah, the roof that should have been replaced 15 years ago.
    Coffee!!

    Yeah, the Bruins should have won in Vancouver, they were the better team that game, but that opening frame clusterfuck goal did them in. I don’t see why they couldn’t drop a 2nd one in the opposing net.

    They weren’t great insetting up in front of Vancouver’s net, IMO. They got good chances but ndidnt get on a hell of a lot of good rebounds.
