Morning Free Association: Ha Ha Habs

The Bruins are now 20-11-2. Since New Year’s Day they have won 6 of 7 games. In that span Brad Marchand has scored 8 goals with 4 assists. Last night was a pretty good one for him.

I could write a whole thing but I’ve decided to just give you the highlights.

Brad Marchand scored a hat trick (or a Rat Trick)

He had completed this by the middle of the second period on a short handed goal.

Curtis Lazar had a 3 point night

Two goals and an assist for Lazar in his multiple goal effort for the B’s. Originally it was counted as Urho Vaakanainen’s 1st NHL goal but upon review, the scorers awarded it to Lazar.

Patrice Bergeron laid down the law

After the sole goal scorer for the Habs, Michael Pezzetta, hit Matt Grzelcyk high along the glass, Bergeron wanted to send a message to him. Sometimes to deal with a goon you have to become a goon.

Lesson: don’t make Patrice Angry because you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.

Erik Haula had a bee in his bonnet tonight and wanted to smash Habs players

It probably didn’t help that defenseman Chris Wideman head-butted him.

He was taking no shit from them last night.

These two teams don’t like each other

All is well in the world because the Bruins – Canadiens rivalry is intact and there is much hatred. Who cares if the Habs suck, it’s still fun to hate them. It’s always a glorious day to hate the Habs!

Tuukka Time starts tonight

The fans at some point starting chanting, “We want Tuukka!”

I felt bad for Linus Ullmark who had let in all of 1 goal and was having a great game. But then I remembered he’s getting paid good money so he can be a tandem goalie.

Morning all. Woke up in the middle of the night with a good case of the shivers thanks to the booster shot. Forgot how not fun those are!

And in the important news of the day: It’s SatanMother’s 70th birthday!

Happy birthday Satanmom!

I was very lucky, had nothing more than a sore arm with any of the three shots. Some people I know missed a day of work. Actually I may have missed a trick there!

I was pretty lucky as well. This was the only real side effect (other than sore arm) I got with any of the shots. It was just weird to remember what if felt like to be sick, it’s been a couple of years! lol

Morning.

That was fun. And we learned Erik Haula really doesnt like to be head butted!

I’m a little surprised Swayman was sent down. Would Ullmark have to clear waivers I guess? He’ll surely be traded at some point wont he?

Good morning!
Who are these guys? Dunno, but they are playing great hockey. Marchand is on fire! Also, the “We want Tuukka” chants brought tears to my eyes. I feel that Tuukka’s absence may have brought home to the naysayers just how good this guy is. Very much a feel good game!
Jo and i spent a lot of time making sure our house was well insulated and draft free…. well, it’s so tight (how tight is it?) (Thank you), it’s so tight that the carbon monoxide alarm went off last night. Seems we hadn’t been opening the door much during the cold days and were using up the oxygen in the house. It’s tight.

Yeah, glad we have it, even if it’s too sensitive
