Morning Free Association: One Down, One More to Go

The Bruins without David Krejci, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Charlie McAvoy, and The Mayor of Walpole Chris Wagner make easy work of the Minnesota Mild.

Truthfully, I skipped this game because watching Minnesota’s brand of hockey is something I have done enough of in my lifetime. It only took one playoff series to make me hate them for all eternity. I did come home in time for the last two goals, though, so I deserve credit for making those happen.

Anyway, Jaroslav Halak made all the saves on his way to his 5th shutout of this season. Joakim Nordstrom scored the first and game winning goal while David Pastrnak and Zach Senyshyn added to the goal tally. Senyshyn’s goal was an empty netter, his first NHL goal in his first NHL game.

Love that it looks like Jake DeBrusk, who was drafted one pick before Senyshyn in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft and who no doubt spent much time with him in development camps, gave him the face wash after his goal.

Unfortunately, not all of last night’s news was good. Kevan Miller injured himself early in the game. While he returned for a bit, he was kept out of the third for precautionary measures.

After the game, the NESN studio crew (Dale Arnold, Billy Jaffe, and Andrew Alberts) all agreed that BRANDON CARLO MUST SIT OUT THE GAME ON SATURDAY. He’s so close, let’s not screw this up.

One more game to go before the playoffs!

Cassidy said last night that Miller was OK to go but he held the player out.

I’m gonna keep listening for another shoe to drop, because these things are often not over on the night of the game.
