Morning Free Association: Adventures in Goaltending

On Saturday night, the Boston Bruins faced a struggling Nashville Predators team at the Garden, a team that is currently out of the playoff structure. And the Bruins struggled against them during that game as well. While the B’s managed to take the lead initially and then again after Roman Josi’s first goal of the evening, they lost it again when Jaroslav Halak had an adventure when he skated out of his crease and tried, and failed, to play the puck. The few of us who saw the Worcester Railers game the other week recognized that move and resulting goal.

So, yeah, Roman Josi basically got a gimme goal. He, unlike some of our players, knows how to shoot at an empty net.

Anyway, the B’s eventually tied up the game thanks to Patrice Bergeron’s second goal. However, they would go on to lose in overtime. Again, they snatched a defeat from the jaws of victory and still managed to come away with the loser point. We’re all frustrated by this.

They have one more chance at a win before the Christmas break and that is tonight against the Washington Capitals. They’ll have to do it with their captain as Zdeno Chara as he’s out due to a medical procedure. Apparently, he has an infection in his jaw from the previous insertion of plates and will have them removed and there cleaned up. He said that he decided to do this at this time to minimize the games he would have to miss. He could be back for the game at the Sabres on Friday night.

Hopefully, the B’s will prevail tonight.

The NWHL just rang the opening bell at the NASDAQ stock exchange.
Which is super weird, considering their finances.

Also an accurate gif for what opening my email every morning is like during renewal season.

I know at some point the OT losses will annoy me but right now I’m in the “find it comical how they can’t win in OT” stage.

Greetings from Slovakia!

I way overdid it on the homemade apricot brandy last night and feeling proper rough now. Ah well.

Ugh, more loser point. What’s going on with this team?
