Morning Free Association: Returns to the Fray?

Embed from Getty Images

It’s Tuesday and a game day in New Jersey. Currently plagued by injury issues, the Boston Bruins are hoping to get some of their regular players back tonight and later this week.

After missing the past five games with a lower body injury sustained during the game against the Habs, Jake DeBrusk is finally on the mend and looking to rejoin the lineup. Of course, he will be a gametime decision.

Another forward looking to return is Brett Ritchie. His last game was also against the Habs, a game during which he went missing both figuratively and literally. He along with Patrice Bergeron are gametime decisions.

Torey Krug will not be in the lineup tonight but is likely to return later this week.

Finally to round out the team, forward Brendan Gaunce and defenseman Urho Vaakanainen were recalled from Providence.

It will be interesting to see Gaunce in an NHL situation – he’s been good at lower levels, but the big show is another thing entirely.

Ritchie isn’t anything special, but it will be good to have him available. I’ve been missing DeBrusk, though Heinen has been picking up the slack.

They need DeBrusk’s energy and Ritchie will give some needed beef!

Morning.

It’ll be good to get some guys back. Devils have been poor but won three of their last four (managed to lose to the Sens in the other).

Yet another blackout for me. Gimme a break!

Morning all. Had a dream last night I was walking through a field and realized there was an Amish woman there murdering everyone so I had to get away from that situation. Ended up having to walk through Boston but Boston was flooded so that was difficult. Then was woken up a couple of time with snow falling off the roof. So much for the well rested feeling I had the other day.

Hi All!!!!
Good news that the boys are getting close. I feel that patience is best. Players want to play. I don’t mind if they take an extra game or two, just to be sure they are 100%. The Devils, at 7-8-4, are just the kind of team the Bruins like to overlook. Recent results may find them less susceptible to that ennui.
Still adjusting to being warm, having a range with four burners and an oven, a full size fridge. Such luxury!!! Throw in a roof that don’t leak, i could get used to this!!

Living in paradise now! And since you live in a pool house does this technically make you a pool boy? lol
