Morning Free Association: Back in Action

Today is Friday the 27th which means that Christmas is over, Hanukkah has 3 more days, and Kwanzaa lasts until New Year’s Day. It also means that the NHL is back from it’s mandated 3-day Christmas break. I hope that you had a nice holiday break as well because you’ll need to buckle up for this part of the hockey season because it’s going to become a faster more urgent time for teams and the fans who love them.

Tonight, the Bruins find themselves at Key Bank Arena in Buffalo, taking on the Sabres for only the second time this season. Of course, on Sunday they will play them for the third time in the back half of a home-and-home. Since the team has been away and there’s also been a roster freeze, there’s no additional information on potential injuries to Torey Krug and Charlie McAvoy sustained on Monday night’s game against the Capitals.

A player within the Bruins organization did sustain an injury at the World Juniors Championships: Jakub Lauko.

Reports indicate that it is an MCL injury but not to the nature of it (tear or sprain), with no timeline for a return to the ice. Poor guy is going to miss the rest of the WJC.

So, that’s about that. Tune into the game tonight at 7pm.

Morning all. I don’t want to be at work today. I’ve discovered You Suck At Cooking on Youtube and I just want to be home binging.

Morning folks. Hope Santa brought you everything you wanted!

It’s unseasonably warm here, but we managed to get to ski on the 25th. Not me – I’m out with a minor back injury I picked up while getting something out of my locker at work! The snow was pretty slushy and hard work, so I’m told.

While we were there we ran into a local celebrity – 3x Olympic biathlon champion Anastasia Kuzmina. I’m a big fan of biathlon so that was exciting, although it didn’t occur to me to ask for a photo even though I had a camera round my neck. Ah well.

Hope the boys are rested up and ready to go tonight.
