Morning Free Association: Another Loser Point

Watching the Boston Bruins is an exercise in frustration. Remember when it used to be fun? How about when they would take one or two periods off then flip the switch and win the game? It seems so long ago.

The Bruins have scraped two points from the past two games by not getting it done during regulation. Even with the return of Charlie McAvoy and Torey Krug on defense and David Krejci on offense, the team at basically full-strength couldn’t beat a wildly injury-depleted Blue Jackets team.

The good thing about this game was that the Bruins actually won a coach’s challenge and had a goal against them called back. Apparently, Goalie Bob saw the play and called down to say that it looked like goaltender interference, which it was. That was lucky because that was only 17 seconds into the game.

As a result, no one scored in the first period.

Elevn minutes into the second period, Dean Kukan (who?) was called for tripping on Jake DeBrusk. Truthfully, it was a bad call but it became magic when David Pastrnak finally scored his 30th goals on the season in the Bruins 42nd game.

Early in the third, Sonny Milano tied up the game. Both teams failed to score for the remaining time in regulation. In overtime, Pierre-Luc Dubois scored the game winner with just 52 seconds elapsed in the extra frame.

Morning all. I think when the Bruins win a game in OT streamers and confetti and balloons should fall from the rafters.

The Bruins actually looked good for most of that game. But so did the Jackets.
It was a good game to watch.
