Morning Free Association: In Our Blood

Tonight, the Bruins will start the third round of the playoffs with the Eastern Conference Final at the TD Garden. In preparation of that, the Boston Bruins have put out a series of portraits of key players.

 

Perfect Patrice
Is it just me or did they age Bergeron in this picture to make him look older and grittier? He doesn’t need either of those traits since he is perfect. In fact, they misspelled his name: Perfection.

Big Zee

This looks like one hombre  you do not want to run into at any time. He looks like he will beat you up, beat you down, then beat you side-to-side. Do not mess with Zdeno Chara, not if you want to live.

Perfect lIttle Angel

I understand how the Bruins are trolling everyone else, I do. However, couldn’t they have used a better picture of Marchy? Like one with with him clutching his chin with his palms curled around either side, batting his eyes as he looked upward and to the side? Here he looks like he just got caught robbing a wagon in the rain in the Old West.

Tuukka

It’s great that they focused on his eyes since that seems to be Tuukka’s finest asset at this point. I mean, this guy had two 39-save shutouts* during the Columbus series. As long as all of his teammates stay the fuck out of his way and allow him to see the puck, Tuukka will stop all the pucks. He’s on fire.

Watch all these players and more tonight at 8pm** on NBCSNPDQOMGWTFBBBQ.

 

* That Columbus goal after the puck hit the netting in Game 4 was illegitimate and robbed Tuukka of his shutout.

**Really, it’s 8:20pm.

Hello! I am a wreck today because I have some kind of stomach thing going on.

So, anyway, Cam Neely’s brother is in my office. I have seen him but have not been introduced. I feel like maybe he’s good luck.

Does he own a bar or something? Did he also come over in the Cam Neely trade?

Oh! I also found out my brother can’t attend games 3 and 4. There is no way I want to go to my first playoff game without my brother, so if there is a game 6, we’ll go to that one.

I know there are people with master and doctorate degrees here.

But holy shit, this undergraduate law paper is killing me. I nearly finished it last night, but the professor sent a guide last night (great, prompt timing there, chief) and my paper does not align. I work full time and the paper is due May 15th at 11:50 pm.

What does that mean?

1. No way I can watch the game tonight.
2. Fuck
3. I just want to be done with school.

Hello folks.

I got a good feeling about this game. Get it done.

I think Marchy is handling the media business exactly the right way. Yes, he’s done some questionable things on the ice but in the playoffs sometimes you’ve got to do what you can to get under the other team’s skin. Remember the Canucks series? There was all sorts going on in that one. All’s fair in love, war and the playoffs!

I was all set to leave the pub at 9.30 last night, but as I was saying goodbye my darts teammates pointed out they had a drink for me on the bar. Fast forward to me walking in my door at 1am. I have no will power *sigh*.

Hey All!!
I think that picture of B rad is in the vein of Angels with Dirty Faces.
Anyway, get ready for a completely different series!! Can’t wait to see what Bruce Cooke up to get ’em through this round!!! Go Bruins!!!

I feel that Tuukka looks relaxed. “Yeah, well, shutout… guys played great in front of me…. I got lucky in a couple… (Carl shrug) the puck is finding me right now”
Level head, very quiet in goal (mostly positional saves… not so many two pad stacks). Efficient!!! Magnificent!!!
Since it’s Tuukka, maybe elficient, rather than efficient….\_0_/
