Morning Free Association: Another One Bites the Dust

Last night, another team was knocked out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Washington Capitals didn’t put up much of a fight, losing 1-0, then 2-0, then 4-0 after letting in two empty net goals. That means that the New York Islanders have advanced to the second round.

The teams will be re-seeded in the second round. At this point if the Flyers win their series against the Canadiens, the Bruins will be facing off against the Lightning. If the Habs pull off the upset in the next two games, the Bruins will play the Islanders. If you ask me, I’d prefer the latter scenario as crazypants as it sounds.

The Habs will be without Brandan Gallagher who was the subject of a cross-check that broke his jaw. Matt Niskanen, the offender, had a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety who banned him for one game.

So, we’ll have to wait a couple of days until we find out the next opponents.

That’s it, that’s all you need to know today: Bergy is perfect.

Hey All!
Caps did not look like they had any desire to stay in the bubble. With the exception of one period in game 4, they were lackluster, at best. I’d like to see the Habs beat the Flyers, TBH. The Bruins match up better against the Isles than they do the Bolts or Flyers, IMO.
I loved the dream yesterday….. opened the door to a store and realized…. NO MASK!!!! The modern equivalent of being naked in public! Oh the shame! I quickly retreated to the safety of the car and found my emergency mask.

Almost did that last week. Walked out my door then realized I had to walk back in because I forgot to grab a mask. And the other day my dad texted me asking if I had any mason jars. When I replied my phone kept autocorrecting mason jars to mask jars.

It really is embarrassing to realize you’ve forgotten to bring a mask when one is needed! How far we’ve come into pandemic-land!
At least most people are trying to do the mask thing here in the northeast, but even here, there’s an amateur soccer league that plays in the nearby park, and they are not good with mask discipline, and their fans are 50/50 on it.
Admittedly, one can’t reasonably wear a mask while playing such an aerobic sport, but then they hang out in the parking lot chatting without masks.

I don’t go many places….usually home all day…. hard to stay in the habit that way.
