Morning Free Association: Bruce is Back and Stuff

Embed from Getty Images

It seems like it’s been forever since Bruce Cassidy tested positive and was placed in the Covid Protocol. It’s only been a couple of weeks. In that time the Bruins went 3-1-2 and managed to back into the playoff picture.Well, Bruce is back.

The team is back in town from their quick road trip and some players were on the ice and others weren’t. Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron had maintenance days. John Moore, Linus Ullmark, and Connor Clifton had some testing issues they needed to resolve, keeping them off the ice. There should be no concern, right?

Wrong.

Apparently, there’s an outbreak or at least a bunch of players and personnel testing positive in Calgary, you know, the team the Bruins last played against.

So, yeah, no need for panic but definite need for testing.

So, that makes Tuukka “EBUG” Rask important in practice today, where he was practicing with the main group.

By the way, have you noticed how well the Ullmark-Swayman tandem is playing as of late? Could it be because of this?

Anyway, Tomas Nosek (Covid protocol) and Brandon Carlo (lower body injury) were also spotted at practice.

Let’s hope we have two goalies ready for tonight. Fingers crossed.

Ooh, excellent. Did you see many? I bet where you are the stargazing is fantastic.

Far too much light pollution here, but twice I have just happened to look up at the right time to see the ISS!

I did see a few meteors! Bright ones can be seen anywhere, but here i see many that would go unnoticed elsewhere.
Also, i found a porcupine chewing on one of our sheds about 5:30am. Took some archery practice, but missed.

Oh wow – I’ve only ever seen a porcupine at a wildlife park. It was much bigger than I imagined they were!

Porcupines are really big! We have a lot of them here… they claw at wood to eat the bugs, beetles, etc.
