Morning Free Association: Games, Transactions, and Injuries

This weekend the Bruins JV club took on a Chicago Blackhawks team that Featured Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Brandon Saad, and Duncan Keith among other starters. The big veterans on the Bruins included Brandon Carlo, Matt Grzelcyk, and Steven Kampfer, all of whom were the alternate captains of the night. Even without the star power and veteran core, the bear cubs manage to take the Chicago Blackhawks to OT, where the B’s lost 3-2.

The game was not televised on normal channels but we had some reporters keep us in the loop. Apparently, Kyle Keyser is a beast, stopping all shots in the third period and only allowing one goal in OT.

I guess it’s helping him.

My Boyest of Boys™ saw his first game action and showed that Playoff Brando Carlrissian is not a fluke.

Pete Cehlarik is having a rollercoaster camp. On Thursday night, he was great, last night not so much. He had the shortest TOI. The Bruins may want ti see if he can be more consistent since he’d have to clear waivers to make it to Providence.

Anton Blidh was a casualty last night, reportedly a shoulder injury that needs evaluation.

The Bruins made their first round of cuts yesterday, announcing that Axel Andersson (D), and Wiley Sherman (D) had been assigned to Providence. Samuel Asselin (F), Chris Breen (D), Alexey Solovyev (D), Brendan Woods (F), and Cooper Zech (D) will all report to Providence.

One final transaction: Bobby Orr has been restored to his proper place in front of the Hub on Causeway. The statue was moved prior to the extensive remodeling on the complex.


Welcome home, Bobby!

There’s got to be a reason some players seem to get injured all the time. Training programme? Playing style? Just bad luck? Maybe some people are just more fragile than others.
