Morning Free Association: Long Sigh

I could go into last night’s game but I didn’t really pay much attention to it and I more importantly

I don't want to

What I can tell you is that it seems like we have a team full of Daniel Pailles, can move down the ice really fast but can’t hit the broad side of a barn.

This is the information that you need to know: the Bruins got a point.

IW suggested that the B’s could use another 8 games against the Flyers (they only have 3 games left against them). He also pointed out that the B’s have 8 games to play against the Sabres.

And then there’s this:

The Bruins come back to Boston for a two-game homestand starting Wednesday.

Hockey dog Boomer has decided that outside is the place to be, and has started to hang out on our patio deck. He likes the sofa. GH asked ‘hey, isn’t there a table that’s supposed to be here?’

So this morning I went into the crawlspace behind the basement closet to retrieve the aforementioned folding table from storage. It was buried behind a rolling garment rack (with a couple of full garment bags hanging from it) so I pull the rack out, but it leans to the side, and hooks on the door. I give it a shove and the whole thing collapses, blocking the door.

Next think I know, I’m stuck in an R Kelly videocomment image

Ah no! Well, as long as that’s where the R Kelly similarities end!

Hope it didnt take too long to escape.

No, but I did get a pleasant opportunity to curse aloud and fling around the parts of the now completely broken cart.

Morning folks.

Just finished watching the game. Well, at least it was better than last time. I’m liking Tinordi. Also Nick Ritchie. Studnicka doing good things but getting no puck luck. Ditto Krejci.

That Pasta interview reminded me of this wonderfully-situated soccer stadium in Slovakia:

Wow! Squeeze your pitch in wherever you can, eh? The YMCA in Pittsfield, MA has a hockey rink on the 3rd floor. The locker rooms are in the basement near the boiler room…. it’s a million degrees in them. Elevator or stairs will get you to the ice.

Haha! Imagine waiting for that lift on one of the intermediate floors. Doors open and it’s packed with fully-kitted-out hockey players!

I played against a team from Switzerland that had just come from a tournament in Hawaii. There were no dressing rooms at the rink, so they dressed at their hotel – minus skates, then went out to hail cabs to get to the rink. Quite an image, eh?

Oh my. That means that they were probably also coming off the ice in full & now sweaty gear, hailing cabs back to the hotel in Hawaiian weather. Blech.

Studnicka’s puck luck will improve. He’s getting chances. They’ll go. Krejci is pretty snake bit lately. Varlamov had him looking to the heavens last night!

Varlamov must be having some season. He was 1.33 GAA before last night – then improved that!

Krejci has been generating some good sequences, but is MIA on the G column. I mean, 11 assists are a demonstration of his value, but dang, that guy should be scoring more.

The Isles are rolling. They’ve had an unusually high number of games at home, and have gotten at least one point out of all of them. Something like 11-0-2 at home and 5-6-2 on the road. It’s all really weird, but they’ve played well whenever I’ve seen them.

They ALL should be scoring more tbf. Ten of the last 13 games the Bs have scored 2 or fewer goals in regulation.

Rule #1: “There are no line substitutions allowed between 8 minutes and 5 minutes prior to the hour!” grin

Good Morning!
Miraculous return of internet this morn! Must have been out in our neighborhood as no neighbor’s network showed on my tablet. Anyway, didn’t I see that game before? Must have been a replay of a game earlier this season.
Great success with my crazy railing! It’s perfect. Needs a fluff and buff. Can’t wait to send the bill!
