Morning Free Association: The Inevitable

Embed from Getty Images

Well, it happened. The Bruins finally logged a regulation loss at home for the first time this season. They happened to lose to a team that dealt them their first loss of the season, way back on October 10th, the Colorado Avalanche. Like Thanos equipped with all of the Infinity Stones, it was inevitable.

Okay, now that we’ve got all that out of the way, the Bruins will try to get back in the win column on the road starting tonight in Ottawa. This week includes a back-to-back against Washington on Wednesday and at Tampa Bay on Thursday. Like we can remember it by saying if it’s Wednesday, they must be in Washington and if it’s Thursday, they must be in Tampa.

 

The roadtrip ends with Florida on Saturday. Sorry, that didn’t fit my alliterative scheme.

 

Now that John Moore is back and playing in games, the Bruins needed to clear up some roster space and start solving the logjam at defense opting to send versatile and dependable defenseman Steven Kampfer through waivers, hoping that he won’t be claimed by noon on Monday.

 

Poor guy. I wish he could stay up with the club because he has a great ability to sit and then play reasonably well.

Hey All!!
Missed the game Saturday… Good one to miss! Pamper to waivers was the obvious choice. Hopefully, he clears. The season is long… D will be needed. Lauko had what?? To be taken to hospital?? Something…
So, Mom went into memory care. She hates it, can’t understand what she did to end up there. I told her we were trying to keep it out of the papers, got her laughing a bit. Going back in a couple days. UGH, all the feels, eh?

Pamper…:-0… Kampfer, or course. Dude has been anything but pampered.

Ugh – memory care. We just went through moving my dad to assisted living. He’s been less than subtle about his dislike for the rehab homes, but the assisted living seems palatable.

I’m gonna note this one thing:
Bruins are carrying 8D (soon to be 7) and 13F and 2G
They need to stay at 23 men or fewer.
Bergeron is on IR.

Expect Bergy to come back on the roster at 12:01

Hi folks.

Yeah it had to happen sooner or later. There’s only so many times you can go two goals behind (or three!) and come back. Here’s an idea: try NOT going two goals down!

Tbf the Avs defended really well, skated better and made it count on the break. They blocked loads of Bruins shots (21 according to the stats, compared with 20 we put on goal). Bs also seemed to get a lot of good looks that ended with a shot put wide or over the goal. Ah well, onto the next one. It’s a bust week for the boys!
