Morning Free Association: The Good, The Bad, and The Happy New Year!

Hey its a new year and the Bruins are 2-0 in this new era! Nobody has been better in this first three days of 2019! In fact, we don’t have much to complain about at all; the B’s currently sit in third in the Atlantic, they’ve won three in a row, and they’re finding ways to win despite playing from behind. So this week, we’ll alter the rundown a bit.

The Bold and the Beautiful:

The best two-way forward proved why he’s won the Selke Trophy four times. Patrice Bergeron gave a clinic for all forwards about defensively responsible play by first preventing a short handed goal attempt by Brandon Saad and then getting back down the ice to tap in the power play goal to tie up the game.

He’s not one of the best defensive forwards in the game, he is the best defensive forward in the game. He’s perfect and he’s ours.

The Good:

Three game win streak! Sean Kuraly scores the GWG in two straight! Brad Marchand finally played the Winter Classic! Quota against the Flames! Jake Debrusk scored 2 goals last night! Seriously, so much good this week.

Oh, and this goal:

The Bad:

Most of the second period of the Winter Classic until Patrice saved the day (see above).

The Ugly:

The Bruins now own a dubious distinction of allowing nine short handed goals, the worst in the league this season. That is the opposite of good.

Have a happy weekend!

Well the Flames are a pretty good team this year, tbf!

Flames traded Dougie , Michael Ferland, and Adam Fox for Hannafin and Elias Lindholm…. might as well throw Coach Peters in the mix, and became a force (they were close).

Hi Pals!
Very entertaining gamd last night. You will see it on Bruin’s Classics next summer….. after the Cup win, of course.
Spent yesterday burning debris. . The bottom layer of the old roof was cedar shakes…. I’ve been burning them to save space in the dumpster and to keep me on site where i can keep an eye on the workers.
Voted for Bergy this morn….what a pain in the ass that was! Bergy should give all voters a signed puck, if he makes it.

Sounds like an epic project (the building work, not the ASG voting). Is there an end in sight?

Three more days!!!!
The progress is real! Stripping the roof and disposal of the mess is more than half the battle. The actual roofing is cake……except for hauling the shingles up on the roof.

So we got a Bruins “Premium Charity Bag” this Xmas, and one of the items in it was a signed Ryan Donato Winter Classic puck. So we can always remember his performance in the Winter Classic…

Hi all,

Watched the highlights of last night cos I was too exhausted to see any live and won’t have time to watch a full replay today.

Looked like Krug had a storming game! Halak wasn’t on one of his going nights but we still managed to win. Great.

Surely Halak and Rask have both been better than Price and Howard- the all-star goalies??!!

I’m having a rethink of my social media usage. Obviously B2B is number 1!

Twitter is a great news feed but there are an awful lot of idiots on there who I seem to find it impossible to avoid.

Facebook I like, but there are a lot of ads and promoted posts clogging up my timeline.

I’m going to try to get more involved in Instagram. Even though I’m not much of a shutterbug, there seems to be a lot of positivity on there, and I’m making 2019 the year of positivity. It worked for Jeff Israel!

Just in case you’re still reading … GH/IW – your charity bag looked amazing! I thought about looking into it everytime they mentioned them on the broadcasts, but never thought of it at the right time. Doubt they would’ve shipped one over here anyway!
