Morning Free Association: Buffalo Bound

Embed from Getty Images

Tonight marks the first of three games in a row against the Buffalo Sabres. As we know by now, this was not the original schedule, but the COVID situation that broke out last month when the B’s were scheduled to play against the Sabres caused a bunch of rescheduling. So, three in a row it is: tonight at 6:30, Thursday (7pm), and Friday (also 7pm). Due to the early start tonight, I’m moving Taco Tuesday to Thursday because I doubt I will have my shit together for early dinner. Tacos take time.

Anyway, dear reader, you may want to know what’s up with this team. According to Bruce Cassidy, Matt Grzelcyk could make his return from injury tonight. He’s been out since the 11th with an upper body injury. Jarred Tinordi is feeling good after losing all the blood in his head. Kevan Miller is traveling with the team, which means he could return within a game or two. Tage Thompson isn’t going to beat the snot out of himself.

Jakub Zboril will likely be in tonight.

Jaroslav Halak travelled with the team to Buffalo and is back to skating. He still isn’t officially off the COVID list on Cap Friendly but that could just be a timing thing.

Brandon Carlo is staying behind in Boston but you knew that already.

Do you think they’ll have a tribute reel for Taylor Hall? Curtis Lazar for sure but it would be funny to memorialize Hall’s two whole goals for them.

It should be a fun one tonight.

Speaking of Grizz, lots of bears in the area right now. (Like that seguue? I know, i know, me neither.) We saw two Sunday and yesterday two were seen wrestling on the state highway about a.mile away. Can’t find the link sad

I’ve been enjoying the wildlife in my neighborhood, but no bears.

Heard some coyote, heard some deer & found some scat, saw & heard hawks, owl & turkey. And of course songbird murder cloud. But no bears. Of course, bears are intimidating. But even coyote can be intimidating if there are enough of them. Heard a sizable pack in the woods when taking Boomer for a walk last week – decided to promptly bring him inside. Figured if they got bold enough to threaten us, Boomer would be bound to get hurt.

There’s a mated pair of birds that like to nest on top of my porch light – they came back to the neighborhood last week. I tried to lure them into a more stable spot, but nope. I always forget which species they are.

Post on our town’s message board the other day: “Did anyone lose their pigs? We saw them wandering around our road.”

One got into our recycling bins a few weeks back. Last year one got into my friend’s condo while he wasn’t home. Left a huge dump in the living room. lol

There was a rash of bear break ins last year. We don’t lock ours doors because of crime, we lock our doors to keep wildlife out!

Hiya.

Will be good to get Grizz back. I think I missed Millers injury. Not his knees again is it?

Good morning!
I imagine that players returning to Buffalo want only to leave as soon as possible. It’s a dreary place.
I see the team signed Brady Lyle to an entry level contract. That’s a big boy! Did Kevan need a sparring partner? The kid has been playing well in Provi…. er, uh, Marlborough.
Depth on D is always a good idea for this team.

I now crave tacos!
