Morning Free Association: Game Tonight? Yes!

Believe it or not, the Boston Bruins will play only their second scheduled game of the new season tonight. While most teams have played at least two games already and one team has already played five all on the road (hello, Kraken), the Bruins are a little bit behind. They had ten days off prior to the start of the season and then 4 before tonight’s game in Grittydelphia, so we’ll see how rusty or too well-rested they seem tonight.

Yes, we’ll probably see Gritty which is always a delight.

Jeremy Swayman gets the start again tonight. Bruce Cassidy says that Linus Ullmark will mind the net on Friday in Buffalo. In some ways it will be cool for him to start against his old team, which at this point is 3-0. But we know Buffalo; they usually do great in the first two weeks of the season before falling in the standings.

Tonight’s game is a 7:30pm start on TNT in the States.

It was cold(ish) out here the past two nights. Snow in the mountains wouldn’t be surprising. Tried to get the pellet stove going so the house would be cozy – the stove’s being a total dick right now. It may take me a few days – assuming nothing is outright broken. Still, it’s only October, it shouldn’t be too bad, right?

Good morning!
Watched parts of many games last night. I love espn+ for that. Early in the season so, as GH pointed out, the lessers tend to do more early on in the season. Might have to go watch the game somewhere. If you catch thd Philly feed, lots of Gritty and a break from Jack.
Jo and i worked around the house yesterday. Still so much to do. I want to put the zinc on our bar top today. Zinc has a great look…. it was really hot about 15 – 20 years ago! I like the patina that develops over time

Yeah, why is that, I wonder? Lack of depth? Overreliance on a handful of players who then get tired?

Maybe those weaker teams have youthful enthusiasm and are overlooked by opponents early on. \_0_/
