Morning Free Association: Big Night for Charlies

Embed from Getty Images

On Saturday night, the Boston Bruins finally delivered a loss to the division leading Florida Panthers. The Panthers were playing the second game of a back-to-back; the night the Red Wings took them to overtime.

Before the start of the game, the Bruins and Panthers both honoured the late Jimmy Hayes, who played for both teams in his NHL career, by wearing warmup jerseys bearing his nicknames on the back nameplate. Those jerseys will be auctioned off for charity.

Charlie Coyle was the hero of the night, starting off the scoring and ending it in the shootout.

In between, Anthony Duclair and Sasha Barkov (PPG) scored to tie and take the lead respectively. Charlie McAvoy stepped up for his own power play goal.

Of course, Chuckie was having himself a night, after laying out Eetu Luostarinen.

As I said before: Coyle finished the game in the shootout, ending the Panthers season starting win-streak at 8 games.

Next, the Bruins have the next few days off from games until they meet up with the Red Wings at the Garden on Thursday night.

Morning all. Rainy weekend was good for reading, washing bedding, and watching movies.

Traded the rain for wind this morning. Got pelted by an errant acorn. Actually kind of hurt! lol

We had the most horrendous wind and rain storm yesterday morning. Fortunately it had blown itself out by Trick or Treatin’ time!

Good morning!
Good win Saturday! I’m hoping Charlie Coyle can grow into the 2C position. It appears to be working out. Still want to see Donnie bring in another D. The whole team seemed better defensively, maybe they are gelling?
Got out on Sandy Brook yesterday. It sounds so gentle, soothing, perhaps the rumor of moving water…. and it is, most of the time. Yesterday it was a four mile, down the mountain torrent. Sandy Brook is in a narrow gorge filled with giant boulders. Plenty of 3,4,6, even 8 foot drops. What a blast!

Was interesting to see Pasta moved to that second line, presumably to give Coyle more support. Hall-Coyle-Pastrnak is a pretty solid second line.

Smith looked a little bit off on the top line, I thought, but certainly willing to forgive him that, especially after being out for a while.

That paddle sounds like something. How long does it take to cover that four miles?

The four miles takes about 2 andv1/2 hours. There was another group on the water that started 1/2 hour behind us and finished 15 mins before us…. we play a lot

Sandy Brook has loads of rocks. You will hit a lot of them. All those drops call for a special boat…. a creek boat for steep creeks. One guy brought his regular boat…. it got cracked after hitting a rock. We had to help him get out of the gorge safely. Creek boats are made thick and heavy… they are designed for bouncing off rocks and flying through the air after jumping rocks that can’t be avoided. I got pinned in a small grouping of rocks, but was able to free myself as my friends were preparing to rescue me. !Creeking is crazy and you need a great crew with you when you do it.

Sounds bloody dangerous! lol

Yeah, I was wondering how the boats stand up to bouncing off rocks.
