Morning Free Association: Moms Trip

Embed from Getty Images

Yesterday, the mothers of the Boston Bruins descended upon Warrior Arena. They came from all over – Colorado, Ohio, Michigan, Canada, Czech Republic. First they came to visit their sons before practice, then they watched them run drills on the ice. Onto a bus, then a plane, onto another bus, and finally in Nashville for the day and night before the team plays the Predators.

Day one was captured by the photographers for your pleasure.

As for the Nashville Predators, they are a team that has struggled all season. Sure, they came into the Garden and handily defeated the B’s just before Christmas but that was an anomaly; the Preds are 6th of 7 in a division that is led by the St Louis Blues and the Colorado Avalanche. And they just fired their coach, Peter Laviolette.

Who knows how the Predators will respond to that tonight?

Hopefully, the Bruins boys will want to respond well to their moms trip and play to win the game.

The game is on NESN at 8pm.

Morning all.

Dear Bruins,

It seems you really love the loser point this season. Here’s the thing, the loser point is not a lovable loser. So please stop loving it. Let it go be a loser somewhere else. And win the fucking game.

Thanks,
Ellen

Let’s remember that the B’s played a lot of extra games last year. Yes, they came out flying. They were on a mission. They’re tired now. All the injuries are a blessing in disguise….. rookie energy gets injected into the line up, injured players get healthy and rested. Completion backward principle….

That’s a good point. I was ready for a slow start to the season – thought they might not be entirely up for it after the disappointment. They have a right to be tired.

To change the subject, there was story on BBC yesterday about a hockey game that started late because one of the refs forgot his trousers :-D. I’m sure nothing like that ever happened to you!

I have forgotten trousers!!! Borrowed a coaches black sweatpants, then had to stop and buy a pair because didn’t have time to go home before next rink and game. Multiple rinks and games in those days. A ref might see three states in one day and not find it unusual

I like Bjork at 2rw. He’s been more Jake than Jake has been lately.

Hi Friends!!
The Bruins have a chance to totally redeem themselves tonight!!! LaViolette was a douche… still is, i’m sure. From Melrose, i think. I don’t like playing teams that just fire their coach….
Oh well, it’s about how the Bruins play, really. And they need to be better.

They were trying out Bjork at 2RW yesterday. I am curious how that works out, but they need to be a little better throughout the lineup.
