Morning Free Association: Preseason 1-1-0

Last night the Bruins won a meaningless game in Philadelphia. In that preseason effort, Danton Heinen, Peter Cehlarik, and Connor Clifton all scored.

Since the traditional leadership group stayed back in Boston, three alternate captains led the team onto the ice.

Jaroslav Halak played the first two frames and looked pretty solid, making some good saves and then one like this:

Maxime Lagace took over for the third and looked pretty good allowing no goals during his 20 minutes.

Danton Heinen seemed to thread the needle for his score, taking a Charlie Coyle rebound and wristing it.

Peter Cehlarik cleaned up in front of the net for his goal. It’s good to take advantage of the goalie’s attention deficit.

Connor Clifton’s breakaway fresh from the penalty box was spectacular considering he admitted that he doesn’t know what to do in those situations. Turns out a backhand dangle will do the trick.

The boys are glad to be back playing hockey. They’ll be back on Saturday playing in an untelevised game in Chicago.

Happy Weekend!

Our AHL team is competitive with the Flyers & Devils NHL teams. FTW!?!
Seriously – there were 2 players on Tuesday’s roster who played most of an NHL season last year and 5 on last night’s roster. Meanwhile they’re facing off against Giroux, Vorachek, Ghostisbehere, etc

Hi all. Hooray for meaningless victories!
At least the secondary scoring guys are getting some shooting practice. Get those sights locked in!

Last night we had a Japanese night after work. Sushi, sake and karaoke. I thought my Andy Williams was all right. Not sure what anyone else thought!

Morning all. You would think after GH and I’s back and forth about Sean Kuraly that he would somehow make it into my dream last night. Nope, had a dream I was at an awards show sitting behind Beyonce. The woman next to me accidentally slapped her and let me tell you, you do not want to do that.

Hi Pals!
Preseason, but a win is a win. Maybe Mr Potential (Heinen) can do it in the regular season…. in the playoffs, even. (Snagglepuss accent)
Clifton showed the wrist shot prior to going backhand. Goalie took the bait!!! Fishhooks!!!!

Mom tried to escape from assisted living yesterday (probably thought GH was waiting outside with the engine running!). They are not happy and want to put her in lockdown. we’re trying to buy her a month so we can move her elsewhere (someplace easier to escape from??) . Go Mom!

Feisty centenarian!

That reminds of the memo that went out at work reminding us that people who are 100 years old are not centurions. ha!
