Morning Free Association: He’s Back

Embed from Getty Images

Last week Tuukka Rask completed his rehab from his labrum (hip) surgery and quickly signed a PTO with the Bruins AHL affiliate Providence Bruins. The intention was that he would play a few games for the P-Bruins, notably the weekend series against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Unfortunately, those games were postponed due to Covid issues with LHP.

Tuukka had been practicing in Providence since he signed the PTO and until yesterday morning.

But sadly, he wasn’t able to see game action with them before being let go from the PTO.

His signing didn’t take long to happen or hit the news.

Tuukka himself even weighed in on his signing, trying to make sure that Bud Light follows through on their end of the deal made last summer.

And Bud Light repsonded:

All of these are very doable.

If you’re wondering why the Bruins resigned them, it’s very simple really:

It remains to be seen whether or not he will start this week or complete a rehab stint in Providence. Rumours are that he will be in net tonight against Montreal but could also be saved for tomorrow night, should the game go on; Philly is dealing with a Covid outbreak currently and had a game postponed this week. So we’ll see when he starts.

Regardless, he’s back.

Morning all. Nugget has decided that the new great place to sleep is on the floor in the middle of the kitchen. So that’s fun for human maneuverability.

It’s extra fun when you’re trying to not trip over a cat in the dark trying to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night!

Morning.

Well that’s great news. Bs have been involved in a lot of close games. Having Tuukka in net will make them roughly a goal better of per two or three games I reckon. Could be big.

Had a pleasantly surprising trip dentist appointment this morning. I know she has designs on a wisdom tooth I’ve got lying sideways in my jaw. Its staying that way if I have any say in the matter! Happily it was not mentioned this morning.

Hang on to those wisdom teeth! They come in handy later. Trust me on this one.

Good morning!
And it is a good morning! Welcome back, Tuukka! One thing shocks me some… Bud Light? That’s just embarrassing. Tuukka, you’re a professional! You have to do better!
Can’t wait to see him in net, tho.
Looks like more normal temps today.. high of 28°

For no reason whatsoever, i am listening to Paul McCartney and Wings this morn. I havenever been a Wings fan (music or hockey), but have to hand it to the man, the knight…. dude could make music.
Now back to my regularly scheduled programming! That includes Sis’ show….. if we can stay up that late!

He has an acoustic guitar with a Red Wings sticker he put on it for obvious reasons. When he played at (I think) the opening of PPG Paints Arena, the Pittsburgh mayor wasnt very happy about it, so the guitar now also has a Penguins sticker on it. Even Knights make bad decisions!

*Facts off the top of my head, may not be entirely accurate.

I am convinced that, despite his pleasant demeanor, McCartney is the one who signed a deal with the devil, not Keith Richards. I mean, if you were signing that deal, would you agree to look like warmed over dog shit?

Haha! Harsh but fair on old Keef!

I cant get over how Ringi Starr looks, especially considering he spent the best part of 30 years blind drunk. At least!

No need to stay up late! No show tonight as the cohost has a prior commitment.
