Morning Free Association: Same Team, Different City

The Bruins took on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night in Boston and won 5-2. Tonight, the two teams face each other in the other city, Columbus. This will be the final game between the two teams this season. Boston leads the series 2-0 despite the Blue Jackets playing very well against the team.

Prior to the game, the team honored an old guy who has played a lot of games. Nick Foligno was awarded several items in the pregame ceremony. Since he and his dad are in the rare category of both having played 1000 games, Mike Foligno was in attendance as well. Nick seemed to dislike all the attention and wanted to get on with the game.

Willie O’Ree was also in attendance for the first time since his banner raising. He was in town for the Willie O’Ree Skills Challenge held by SCORE Boston.

Tonight’s game will likely be as hard-played as Saturdays and it’s the start of a 4-game roadtrip against the CBJ, Detroit Red Wings, Tampa Bay Lightning and Washington Capitals, wrapping up al of those series.

Tonights game is at 7pm on NESN.

Just got down off Florida Mountain where it is always cold and windy. Went to the lumber mill up there. Ten foot long 2x4s are $5.33! And they are true 2 x 4s, measuring 2 inches by 4 inches! 12 x 1 1/2 x 9′ 10″ ” cherry… $10 a board
We looked at spme houses up there when we werr buying. Glad we moved to Monrovia’s sunnier climes.

Hiya folks.

Bs did well to dig out the win the other day. Trying not to get hopes too high with playoffs round the corner!

We had a good day yesterday – went to see Hamilton in the West End – Leah’s Xmas present! It was absolutely fantastic.

Morning all. Heading back to Vermont in a couple of hours. It was definitely a great weekend seeing Satan81, Phony, GH, and IW! So nice to people in person again! And the Trixie & Katya live show was absolutely hilarious. I’m still laughing.

Good morning!
Not sure where I was Friday… \_0_/… No idea.
We did catch up on some past games over the weekend.
A lil hiking and a round of disc golf. Passed on hockey last night… too much pain!
Bruins need to take care of business on this road trip.
