Morning Free Association: Good, Bad, and The Gritty

Embed from Getty Images

Another week in the Bruins schedule is coming to a close and it’s time to take a look at how it was.

The Good:

The Bruins won a season high five games in a row and had wins against Buffalo and Minnesota this week. That game against the Corpse Army Minnesota Wild involved some improbable goals by Jake Debrusk and Brad Marchand. And we’ll always have this from that game:

The Bad:

The Bruins lost. To the Washington Capitals. Again.

This loss was the fourteenth in a row for the Bruins against the Caps. Doubly frustrating was that just as it seemed the Bruins figured out the Braden Holtby puzzle, the Caps first line would score under a minute later.

fuck

The Gritty:

Have you seen Bird Box? I haven’t, yet. Admittedly, I have a problem with filmmakers putting America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock™ in perilous situations, preventing me from pushing play on my Roku remote for that movie. Since Twitter has turned into all Bird Box memes all the time, I’m missing out.

Thankfully, we have American Treasure Gritty™ to take that meme and combine it with what surely will be another, Cody Parkey’s missed field goal (which has been amended by the NFL to be a tipped kick). Since that failed field goal benefitted the other Philadelphia team, the Eagles, Gritty is mining this material for fun and profit.

Happy weekend!

Beautiful day in the Great White North yesterday! Flurries all day. Sometimes blowing by, sometimes floating down slowly, occasionally the flurries floating back up, borne on some light breeze……. It was beautiful, but FUCKING FREEZING!!!!. Takes awhile for the heaters to warm a place that’s that cold. It was almost comfy by the time i left!

I used to work halfway up a tall tower. When it snowed you’d often see the flakes going upwards past the window. Freaky!

Hey hockey pals!

Man, those Caps games are frustrating. I just don’t get it. It also drives me absolutely bananas that when they they finally score – each time – they can’t hold it together defensively for the next minute. WTF.

Hey Pals!!
They say that there are no moral victories in hockey, but last night’s game……. maybe.: Scored on Holtby – check
Good offensive zone time – check
Bottled up the neutral zone – check
Krejcl – Czech
Stop the Caps first line – no check.

The timing at which the Caps scored their goals was psychological torture though.

So frustrating. It’s like the “vulnerable minute” is a different minute for the Bruins than it is for everyone else.

We don’t even get 40 seconds to savor the goal.

At least we didn’t get the traditional Ovi not being covered from the faceoff dot – though that 2nd Caps goal was still pretty similar to that

Good morning. Happy Friday! I don’t often say that but I have a rare weekend off.

Annoying not to get a point at least out of that game but hey, the Bs improved by five goals on the previous meeting, so they’ll win the next one by three on that trajectory.

Yeah, Halak shoulda had that third goal, but he came up big a couple of times afterwards to keep them in it. It was still a strong performance against a damn good team.

I remember a game a couple of years ago (I think against Tampa) where they kept immediately conceding after scoring. Don’t do that guys!
