Morning Free Association: Nearing Return

Embed from Getty Images

Several players that have been out of game action for various time lengths are nearing return to the lineup. Several of them skated yesterday. We’ll know later if they are ready to go tonight.

Defenseman Brandon Carlo, My Boyest of Boys who has been out since March 5th, skated during the optional skate with a regular black practice sweater.

Kevan Miller also skated in a regular sweater.

Sean Kuraly skated with skating coach Kim Brandvold prior to other players skating. He’s not off the Covid list, but he’s been on the list for 12 days and presuming that he isn’t symptomatic, he should be cleared off the list soon. However, he’ll be skating on his own to build up his conditioning until he’s ready to join the team again. Jake DeBrusk and Brad Marchand remain on the list and off the ice.

Bruce Cassidy confirmed that Tuukka Rask will not play this week with Jaro Halak and Dan Vladar splitting netminding duties.

The Bruins take on the Devils again tonight at GOD NO PLEASE STOP THE GAME.


The Bruins are sponsoring Willie O’Ree to receive the Congressional Gold Medal for all the good he has done with inclusion and growing the game of hockey. I’m happy to say that our Senators, Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren already support this action but the B’s encourage you to contact your representation to make this happen.

Hiya folks. It’s too hot! lol

We are now officially allowed to mix outdoors, so I was just teaching my neighbour a guitar lesson.

Yeah, the game tonight. Darn those Devils! Maybe Carlo will tip the balance.

Yay, it looks like a nice day today. Looking forward to making progress on a couple of projects around the house.

Don’t want to think about the ugly match-up tonight. One would think that beating a team that can’t score would be fairly straightforward, but no.

Morning all. I’m day to day with an upper body injury. Gave my elbow a good wack getting ready for bed last night. Insert all your funny bone jokes here.

Satan 81’s Sister took an axe,
and gave her elbow forty whacks;
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her elbow forty-one.

Good morning!
Yay! I will be super happy to see Carlo back in the line up! I would love to see KevAn make it, as well. Miller adds that grit. The Bruins sorely need it. A shame to see B rad out as the D comes back. We just need them all to be healthy come playoff time.

Got out on the West Branch Farmington yesterday. Narrow, steep, lots of rocks and drops. One has to be locked mentally for a couple hours. Today, I tired.

Who knows- maybe all this time off will pay off in the long run.
