Morning Free Association: Even More Quota!

Last night the Bruins capped off their homestand with another win closing out their season series with the Chicago Blackhawks. What made it more delicious was that the Bruins never gave back their lead after attaining it, oh, and they scored six goals.

Secondary scoring has been the plague of the team all season but last night, members of the second line made some noise on the power play and at even strength. Jake DeBrusk scored his first goal in FOREVER last night. This was part of his monster three-point night.

His dad, Louie, was part of a Sportsnet broadcast last night when Jake helped out on the first goal.

David Krejci had two goals one at even strength, the other on the power play on his three-point night.

Last week’s Second Star of the NHL, Patrice Bergeron, only had two points last night while his uninjured linemate Brad Marchand had four.

Not a bad night of hockey for Bruce Cassidy’s 100th win as head coach of the Boston Bruins. It wasn’t a given after the news of David Pastrnak’s thumb injury. In fact, no one knew what would happen tonight. The team stepped up in a huge way for the (two u’s, two k’s) two points.

Next up: The Ducks in Anaheim on Friday night.

Great, fun game last night. Not quite a full 60 effort but a good team display and no-one had a bad game. Glad to see Heinen have a strong one. I’ve not been his biggest fan but games like that will give him confidence and that could transform his game.

So, Pasta’s injury… Fell over in the street? Celebrating a bit too hard maybe? Reminds me of a friend of mine who is in the navy. He broke his ankle trying to climb into the back of a mini bus while holding a kebab in each hand. No idea why he needed two kebabs. No navying for a while after that!

I like when Heinen scores because it’s fun to listen to the Garden announcer go “Daaaanton HEEIInen!”

I’d said before that I think Heinen needs to play alongside some serious playmakers or he won’t really find his rythm, so maybe I was onto something?
It would really be nice if he were to develop into what we’d hoped Smitty would when he was on Bergy’s wing.

This was a really good win, on the heels of an injury to their most prolific scorer. Hopefully DeBrusk is off the schneid, too. Anaheim & L.A. coming up seem winnable. San Jose & Vegas look pretty intimidating.

Vegas could be a crap shoot (no Vegas gambling pun intended) since they’ve been on a bit of a skid. They’ve only won three of their last ten games.

I’m pretty sure LA teams are sick of playing Boston teams at this point. lol

Hey All!
So much fun watching this team, when they play like they are capable of playing. Extra fun when downing the ‘Hacks.
Moving Heinie to the top line ahead of the Pasta injury…. Brilliant!!! Such foresight!!!!
Okay, back to the shovel!!

Morning all. See, Bruins, winning in regulation is fun! Do more of that. And DeBrusk, scoring goals is fun and you should do more of that because you’re fun and I want good things for you.

Had fun shoveling heavy, wet snow this morning. And by had fun I mean I had no fun at all. My back is mad at me. Cow worker is stuck on her road because the plow guy got stuck on ice and hasn’t been able to plow yet. This also means Satan Parents are stuck as well because they live across the street from her.

Just call me Long Winded Sis this morning. I’m in a weird mood.
