Morning Free Association: the Good Bad and the Ugly 2/22/19

It’s a real shame that we can’t fast forward to the future. I mean, writing that date hurt because of the last two digits.

Anyway, the Bruins had themselves a West Coast Roadtrip (+Vegas) to be proud of! They won all four games. Sure, the last two were dicey, going into overtime and even the shootout, but what’s important is that the boys emerged victorious!

The Good:

  • Four wins, 8 points!
  • Winning on the road!
  • David Backes improbably winning the shootout!
  • Jake DeBrusk is scoring goals again!
  • Halak earned his fourth shutout the season!
  • The Bruins have (probably) solved for 3C!
  • The Bad:

    Allowing teams to get back into the game. In each of the last three games, the Bruins pulled out to a definitively lead early only to allow each team (Kings, Sharks, Golden Knights) back into the game. In the case of the Vegas game, they allowed a goal against almost immediately after scoring their own.

    The Ugly:

    The Ducks. Man, they suck.

    The Gritty:

    It looks like Gritty may be preparing for his national debut this weekend as the Stadium Series is being billed as his biggest night. He even wrote a diary entry in which we learn that he is close and personal enough to the Bettman to call him Gar (although I would spell it Gare, but I digress).

    I really hope they show his antics because that’s all I want to see from that outdoor game.

    Happy weekend!

    Rumblings that Ottawa and Blue Jackets are working on a trade for Duchene. They play each other tonight so that’s convenient for the players. lol

    Verifies what I think about teams that have multiple cup runs…. It beats the team up physically and financially!!I Bruins, Blackhawks, Kings, ‘Guins….shit, even the Dead Things…. Babcock was like… “Dark years looming… I’m out”.

    Hey All!
    Gritty being one with the universe!!!! I needed that to start my Friday!!!

    So, the Coyle deal has me very excite!!! Tal vez (maybe) it solves muchas problemas. I feel more confident in Coyle as 2RW, but I really can’t argue with (they call me) Bruce, whatever he does. I feel like he pushes the right buttons (whatever that means), has his finger on the pulse of players (like, ditto, wtf?), and… yeah….
    I guess I’m just excited by the recent surge, even if it is against a weak left coast. I like the timing of the left coast swing this year – perfect for bonding a team that is starting to gel…. Coyle integration should be smooth – he’s that kind of playah!
    I was the DJ for breakfast today and found out Jo wasn’t aware that “Sweet Jane” was not a Cowboy Junkies original! Hello!!! Lou Reed??? I have to reevaluate our whole relationship!!!!!? I played her 3 (count ’em, three) different Lou Reed ( godfather of punk) versions!!!! Couldn’t find my favorite, of course. She is definitely on trial!!!! Her music education!!!!!! (most likely will get off with a slap on the…….. wrist! Of course, where did you think???
    Okay! Work today!!!I Must say, not a huge fan of this work thing…..
    Mo coffee!!!!

    Hmm….didn’t know Sweet Jane was a Lou Reed song and has questionable taste in men. I’m not so sure about Jo anymore. lol
