The Bruins lost a close one on Saturday night in Nashville. Quite frankly, without Jaroslav Halak in goal that night making some great saves, the Bruins would have lost it in a less narrow fashion.

One of the most egregious penalty calls of this young season went against Brad Marchand- a phantom high-sticking penalty which the Preds’ Colton Sissons sold to the refs. Marchy was vociferous in his disapproval and disbelief at the call, miming the behavior of the embellishment, which resulted in not only a double minor for hi-sticking and unsportsmanlike conduct. He got an additional 10 minute game misconduct for complaining about it.

Phantom call:

It’s kind of hilarious except that we could have used him for that time he was out during the second period.

Ah, well. The Bruins are back at home tonight against the visiting Dallas Stars.

Hey Pals!!!
What a weekend! Let’s not even talk about the leaky roof. Lots of great paddling this weekend!!! My favorite river was ripping Saturday (two runs!) still flowing yesterday (one long run). Halloween party Saturday night, then stayed up to watch the game replay (didn’t know the final score).
I need to rest now.
That game – ugh! At least one ref had a rough night! Can’t say i blame B rad for showing him up.
Rain today – yay.

Hey hockey pals!

BURNING QUESTIONS:

  • Are the Bruins going to score goals tonight?
  • Is he who shall not be named going to score goals?
  • Why does everyone think we need Panarin?
  • Can’t we get a second line player instead?
  • How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
  • WHERE IS CHARLIE MCAVOY?
  • Where is the Bruins’ offense? I thought the return of Torey Krug was supposed to fix this.

    WHERE IS CHARLIE MCAVOY?

    Was thinking about that this morning. This is my mail concern. PLEASE BE OKAY CHARLIE!

    WHERE IS CHARLIE MCAVOY?

    The quiet room
    (which is not as nice a place as you might expect)

    I hope it isn’t too serious. Also – Kevan Miller? I don’t recall the team actually announcing he would be on IR for over a month. It has been weirdly quiet concerning both, but at least McAvoy’s name is occasionally mentioned.

    Why does everyone think we need Panarin?

    No one does the math. All they can do is beg for “the shiny”. Yeah, lets spend all our future cap space on Panarin – and for that we would have to lose Pastrnak (who is slightly better & much less expensive) or McAvoy (who is not only less expensive but also is our only likely top-pair D-man besides a 41-yr-old Chara). And then the guy will just bail on the team in 2 seasons. /s

    Anyone who suggests trading Pasta and McAvoy for Panarin should get an automatic punch in the face. And I’ll gladly be the one to do the punching.
