Morning Free Association: Storm Purge

Embed from Getty Images

Truth be told, I didn’t watch this whole game; I only watched the last 3 or 4 minutes of the second period and the entirety of the third. Why? Because at 6 pm I needed to rest my eyes for…about 2.5 hours. So, yeah, sounds like I didn’t miss much.

I woke in time to watch Jaccob Slavin score the first goal of the game late in the third. No, wait, that didn’t count.

While Jaroslav Halak had shored up his post, Slavin took a shot that normally would have bounced off the apron of the net or the netting itself. Instead, the puck found a way through a hole in the net and into the goal. Halak protested, the situation room looked at it, and the net was temporarily repaired enough to continue play. The net was repaired/ replaced in between periods.

Very late in the third, Charlie Coyle broke through the scoring drought for his 6th of the year. This would be the game winner.

Sixty-eight seconds later, David Krejci added one more for good measure, his 6th of the year and 200th of his career.

Speaking of milestones, Halak was making his 500th career appearance in net and also earned his 49th shutout.

The Bruins are winners of 8 straight for the first time since 2014. They next take on the Blackhawks on Thursday night at the Garden.

Guys, Pasta didn’t score a goal yesterday. I’m worried he’s injured or in some sort of slump. lol

A few notes on Jaro: 2.48 GAA, .917 Save %, 261-162-55 over his 500 game career….wait….that math doesn’t even make sense to me! 22 no decisions (what is he, a boxer?) is the answer. Either in net in relief or pulled early, but not figuring in the final score.
Breakout year in’09-’10 witj the Habs. 18 game playoff run. Decent years with the Blues, Caps, and Isles.
Perfect fit for this team, IMO. Hope he sticks around.

I’m trying to figure that math out.
Perhaps he got pulled in under 30 minutes 22 times?

If you enter a game with your team losing, you will not get credited with the loss. If your team comes back to win, then you are the goalie of record and are awarded the win….. saving the starting goale from a decision (loss).

Morning all. A shutout for Game 500 is pretty nice!

And just when you think you’ve seen everything in hockey, let’s have a puck through the net!

(Personally I would have let it be a goal because that’s pretty damn impressive!)

I’ve seen them go under the bottom of the apron (crappy goal frame). I’ve seen them enter the goal legally and exit though the twine at the back. I’ve had a goalie claim it went through the net, but couldn’t find a tear. Hockey is wacky.

Hey All!
Tough game to watch! We hung in there, though. The relief when Coyle tipped it home… Huge!!! After Krejci’s goal, there was the question…. Could they hold on for Jaro? 49 shutouts in 500 games… One in ten games a goose egg. Not too shabby!!

One in ten games a goose egg. Not too shabby!!

Especially considering he’s never really been considered a number one goalie. Him and Elliott kinda had an equal-number one status thing going in St Louis for a while.

He’s also had some great performances in international competition, on the bigger ice and with not exactly world class defence in front of him (Chara aside, of course!).

Glad he’s settled in in Boston.

Hiya.

The boys keep on rolling!

Had to settle for the highlights because yet another blackout, but I’ve only got one more of those this month – the Caps game.

Looked like Coyle was having a strong game even before the goal. I didn’t like the trade at the time but happy to admit I was VERY wrong!

Lol at the crowd cheering when the Canes goal was overturned. Was there any doubt?! Although, this is the officials v the Bruins so fair enough! Also lol Jack calling Halak ‘Hašek’ during that review.

Darts team Xmas social this afternoon/evening. Hopefully won’t get too messy!

Also, is it odd that we shorten Christmas, but Thanksgiving is fine. Turkey Day doesn’t help much. Tgiving has not caught on (despite my best efforts)…. Whaddawegonnado with it??? We really only have about seven months to figure this out as adverts start early!!
