Morning Free Association: On to the Regular Season!

Last night was the the final night of the Bruins preseason slate. As they opened their games they closed them playing the same opponent: the Washington Capitals. This time, the teams looked more or less like they’ll look during the regular season with rostered players.

Unlike their first game, the Bruins dropped this game in overtime 4-3.

This game didn’t mean anything so I don’t even care. However, there was one moment that stuck out for me and it was a very promising one: David Pastrnak’s goal in the third period.

We know Pasta and how he’s just so good at this aspect of the game. What we didn’t know was Erik Haula and how he can set up a player like this. Erik Haula shoots the puck intentional wide of the goal where it bounces off the dasher back to a waiting Pasta who fakes out Vitek Vanacek just enough to go five-hole for the game tying goal. It was beautiful.

This was the best moment in the game and it showed promise of what can happen with any personnel on the ice with Pasta. Let’s see some more of this.

Good morning, I guess grin
Thought I posted already!! Musta forgot to pasta my comment.
Looking forward to seeing the new players do their thing. Nosek, Haula, and Foligno!! They could be your 3rd line… Pretty sure Nosek is bound for the 4th, but…
Looks like we will get ESPN only. Can’t afford Fubo, in order to get NESN. I am about to make acronymphobia a thing….. I guess it would be fair to say that my sentiments toward online streaming have taken an acrimonious turn….. Ugh, PUNishment.

Morning,

I seem to remember Krug was fond of the old bank pass off the back boards. Haula’s had a good pre-season, from what I’ve seen of him.

That was a great breakout play they had – the puck would go to Krug, Pasta would sprint towards the far side of the ice, Krug would bounce-pass off the far boards, Pasta would catch the rebound and take a high percentage shot, one-on-one.

I loved that one.
