Morning Free Association: That’s So Gritty

Embed from Getty Images

Last night the Bruins faced the Philadelphia Flyers on Hockey Fights Cancer night at the Garden. The Bruins have been perfect this season at home, less so away. Could they continue their winning ways?

The Fist Bump Kid was in the house to cheer on the boys in black and gold. Defensive players would stand tall in this game as two defensemen and the goalie, the ultimate line of defense, were honored as the Three Stars of the Game.

Three Stars

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara was responsible for the first and last goals on the night, having his first two-goal game since 2014. The last goal came late in the third from the dasher 200 feet to the empty net.

In the middle of all that Jake DeBrusk managed to find his goal game after being fed by lineman David Krejci.

Jaroslav Halak saved 26 shots for his second shutout of the season.

The Flyers, perhaps lacking the support of their new mascot, Gritty, managed to go scoreless for the entirety of the game.

Seems like his team liked spending time in the penalty box and giving the Bruins two PPGs.

It’s fun to beat other teams. Next up: the Habs on Saturday night.

HEY HOCKEY PALS!

  • Watched some of the game during stupid bowling. They looked sloppy getting out of their own end and in the neutral zone.
  • I hear Lauzon looked good but I really couldn’t watch attentively
  • I think you ride Halak til he starts looking bad. I’m a Tuukka sympathizer but you have to go with what’s working when he’s not always putting his best foot forward. Also, doing that seems to bring out the Flying Finnish King in him.
  • I’m having a jack o’lantern crisis. I’m pretty good at carving pumpkins and we’re having a contest at work. I was supposed to do it while watching the World Series on Wednesday and completely forgot. Then I had bowling last night, so I was up until 2am doing it. My pumpkin was too small, so I couldn’t execute my intended theme, and then I did this free-hand Benintendi catch thing and he’s not proportionally correct and after seeing the competition, I’m not entering! hahaha
  • He’s not even close to proportionally correct, and it’s not up to my usual standards, but hey, it’s 1:47am and I’m done with my Jack O’Lantern. #RedSox #DoDamage pic.twitter.com/oeBBdUo8lK
