Morning Free Association: The New Legend

Embed from Getty Images

The Boston Bruins have a new legend in the making and he wears a fishbowl, one that he will have to wear forever and ever.

Yes, Sean Kuraly has had one hell of a career since he broke his nose in a fight in Ottawa on December 9th, a break that necessitated a surgical repair and a full on face mask. Since his return December 11th, he has 4 goals and 5 assists, including a goal and 2 assists on Saturday night in Toronto. Yes, he had a point on each Bruins goal in Toronto. Of course, Kuraly was the game winner in the Winter Classic, which had to feel awesome. Not bad for a fourth-liner. Or should we say third-liner?

That Wagner-Kuraly-Acciari line has quietly become Bruce Cassidy’s go to for absorbing time, space, and hits especially on the penalty kill. With the exception of Thursday’s game against the Capitals, this line has been gaining more TOI than before the Winter Classic. It’s great to see that chemistry building.


On Saturday night at Warrior, injured Bruins forward Joakim Nordstrom dropped the ceremonial puck for the Boston Pride’s game against the Minnesota Whitecaps to celebrate the new partnership between the two teams.


Tonight is the final regular season meeting of the Bruins and Habs, a series that the Bruins lead 2-1. On Peaky Bruins night, they will make that 3-1.

If Satan81 is going to this game, he needs to pick up all the copies for all of us!

I think my favorite of the Peaky Blinder Bruins photo is Donato because he looks like the dumb young kid desperate to prove himself to the mob bosses but ends up getting killed because he’s in over his head.

DeBrusk has that look, as well!

Haha, in my mind DeBrusk is the one that whacks him! grin

Looks like Peaky Blinders night will see the Winter Classic jerseys in use.

Morning, hockey pals!comment image?itemid=5406186
Every other day, every other day, every other day of the week is fiiiiiine, yeah!

  • This whole “Monday home game” thing has me all thrown off. I was going to take a class that started last Tuesday and I didn’t take it because I didn’t want to miss class #2 of 8 because I was going to the Habs game, buuuuuut that’s tonight, not tomorrow. I should learn how to work a calendar.
  • Very satisfied with the win over Toronto. Tuukka played well. Fourth line played well. I didn’t think our defense was much better than theirs, hahaha
  • I have seen a lot of complaining that the support for the Pride is too little, too late. Just not enough, period. Will it ever be enough? Like, they’re doing SOMETHING for a team they don’t owe anything to, I think that’s pretty good.
  • We still need a wing. BUT WHO?
  • Why the hell has Peter Cehlarik not been called up yet?
  • My last haircut/eyebrow job was in the first week of September. Finally made it back this weekend and I’m happy to say this is the first time in a couple months that I haven’t had to comb my eyebrows before I left for work.

    Very satisfied with the win over Toronto. Tuukka played well.

    He did. We were maybe a bit lucky Hutchinson (or whatever his name was) had a bad night too but there were periods of brilliance from both teams.

    I’ve loved the games against the Leafs this year. You’ve got skills, you got nasty, and you genuinely don’t know who’s going to win until the end. Can’t with for the playoff series!

    They’re reminiscent of Habs games, minus me being very, very mad!

    If I let them get overgrown, my mother yells at me that I have my father’s eyebrows. Other than his being red, she’s right!

    So I grab a poster whenever it’s one I’m interested in, and they VERY rarely make it back to my house in decent condition!

    I went on a poster night but sadly it was also one of the rainiest days I’ve ever seen. No bueno sad

    Booooo. Mine usually get all banged up because I sit in the balcony and there’s nowhere to put them except under the seat, which inevitably means they’ll be covered with someone’s beer.

    Mine get folded and stuck in my back pocket……let’s face it, i should just place ’em in the trash(recycle bin, of course!) as soon as i get them.

    Hi Pals!!
    Bergy, Krejci, and DeBrusk really look the part in the Peaky Blinders gear. Of course, Bergy looks great in anything!!
    Great win in Toronto Saturday night. A win tonight would really give the boys a leg up on their divisional foes!!!
    Kuraly…. gotta love this guy! There’s a lil Nevin Markwart (the Kamikaze Kid) in him. No fear, lots of willpower, and enough skill to get it done!!!
    Bour…… I mean coffee!!!!

    Also, it’s really fucking cold. And anyone want to hire me and give me a place to live? Ugh, trying to figure out what to do with this whole having to move situation.
