Morning Free Association: Not an Emergency Recall

During Sunday night’s terribad shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, Torey Krug was felled by a hit into the glass by Claude Giroux late in the third period. Apparently, he came back for one shift, then left the ice for the rest of the game with a UBI.

Krug is already out for tonight’s match against the Florida Panthers. Matt Grzelcyk will get his chance to shine in Krug’s stead as the quarterback of power play unit 1.

Urho Vaakanainen got a regular, it’s not an emergency, recall from Providence.

Vaakanainen has a rough go of it with the P-Bruins so far this season, but figures he has turned his game around recently.

“I’ve been skating well,” said Vaakanainen, who has two assists in 15 AHL games. “Found the flow in my game. It’s been a good two or three weeks.”

It remains to be seen if Cassidy plays Vaakanainen over Steven Kampfer tonight.

Since the Panthers are in town, that means that Noel Acciari is back, just on the other side of the sheet. Chris Wagner had dinner plans with his old friend and reminisced about what it was like when they both played for the South Shore Kings.

That seems like the perfect description.

Just spent 90 minutes – mostly on hold – with Home Depot trying to track down a package which was supposed to be delivered yesterday. The cust svc rep was quite helpful, FedEx was hard to get info from. But the damn on-hold background is a set of their stupid radio commercials with the guitar riff that repeats every 5 seconds. comment image
They need to change that, or someone’s gonna get killed.

A good portion of my job is spent on hold with various insurance companies. There’s one that gives you the option of music or no music while you are on hold. I like that company. And I like them so much I can’t remember which company it is.
