Morning Free Association: Tonight, the Tootsies!

Yes, the Boston Bruins are allowed to play another game tonight. It seems like it’s been a long while since they last played on Saturday night. I mean, we lost an hour on Sunday and it still feels like years since the B’s last had a game. Many teams have played between 10-13 games while the Bruins have only 9.

Tonight’s opponent is the Ottawa Senators, a team just behind Boston in the standings in the Flortheast with 7 points; Boston on has 10 and is 6th of 8. These teams have not met in nearly 2 years, the last meeting occurring on December 9, 2019 when the Senators had the upper hand on the Bruins, winning with a score of 5-2. Their 4 game slate had nearly been completed that season with a final meeting happening at the end of March. For obvious reasons that game was scratched.

I’ll admit that I know nothing about this Senators team and how they’ve been playing. Well, nothing other than Brady Tkachuk is now their captain, a void the team hadn’t filled properly for three years since Erik Karlsson was traded to the San Jose Sharks.

But other than that, I know nothing and I’m too lazy to look it up. To be honest, I really don’t care about the Senators.

The team I care the most about may be getting closer to how it looked on opening night. Nick Foligno is practicing in a regular jersey after missing 8 with an unspecified upper body injury. He’ll look to return on Thursday against the Edmonton Oilers.

Seeing that the third line needs a spark and some scoring touch, Jack Studnicka is going to try his hand at right wing.

I hope he lights it up.

This is what they looked like at practice.

Tonight’s game is 7pm at the TD Garden.

Am not sure what to make of the Sens. They’re not a very good team, but they’re close enough to .500 to be a PITA. They’ve tended to not be an interesting team to watch unless they were playing spoiler to the Habs. It will be good to see if the Bruins offense can get their shit together tonight.

Hi folks.

Currently waiting for a guy to come and remove our tree. It’ll come down by itself in the next t big wind if they don’t! A shame, I liked that tree. Will have to see about getting a new one.

And here he is now! See ya later.

Just make sure you don’t stack the logs up on cemetery hill. Sometimes dead is bettah. The tree that comes down isn’t the tree that goes up.

Good morning!
The Tootsies! They have a guy named Egor, so i’m guessing their team is something of a horror show. Also, they are paying Matt Murray 6 million dollars a year to get beat up nightly. That said, the Tootsies have often made the Bs their patsies enough times to not overlook them.
A lil work and a lil play today!
