Morning Free Association: Injury Woes, Part 5467

Embed from Getty Images

It’s getting a bit old but perhaps we shouldn’t whine about it. It seems every year at playoff time we have to deal with this injury problem, defensive style.

Yes, right now while the B’s defense seems to be more intact than it was at the start of last postseason, the Bruins will still have to deal with injuries to a starter and the 7th D-man on their roster right now. Kevan Miller, who has struggled to get and remain on the ice is dealing with a knee injury right now that has kept him out of the lineup since it happened on Thursday of last week.

John Moore, who’s been out since March 25th, is likely to return soonish.

In the meantime, Steven Kampfer will sub in for Miller on the third pairing and Connor Clifton waits in the wings. Jeremy Lauzon was sent back to Providence this weekend.

One surprise this season has been the rise of Karson Kuhlman. The first year pro has been a late season wonder and has earned a spot in this postseason lineup. That means that David Bakes could end up on the ninth floor to start the series.

We’ll see what happens over the next two days with the lineup.

Morning all. Kept thinking the Bruins were playing tomorrow. They’re playing tomorrow tomorrow.

Hi all.

YES to Karson Kuhlman! I know it’s not autumn, but it’s still time to sweep the leafs!

Part of my job today is previewing the playoffs. The more I look at it the harder it is to get away from Tampa. There just doesn’t seem to be a chink in their armour. But the good news is my predictions are usually wrong!

This made me look up leafblower videos on the Internet.

Meanwhile, the landscape contractors have been buzzing around outside my office with their own leafblowers for the past hour+ and I kinda wanna murder them.

I never pick the Bruins, because of superstitions, but I always love being wrong.
