Morning Free Association: Win or Go Home

The Boston Bruins find themselves in a bit of a pickle. After dropping Game 5 to the Hurricanes in Raleigh, they not only must win Game 6 tonight to stay in the playoffs but they must win also win Game 7 down south to move on to round 2. No pressure.

First things first: they must win tonight.

Jeremy Swayman will be between the pipes for his 4th start of this series. Hampus Lindholm is very likely to be back tonight.

They could use the help, Matt Grzelcyk has been having a tough time during this series taking several penalties in the last game. The Canes seem to be targeting him and he can’t stop it. It’s possible that he’s the odd man out tonight since Cassidy seems happy with the Forbort – Clifton pair and Mike Reilly has been playing better than Grizz. Other than that it’s difficult to see further lineup changes other than moving players up or down the lines. The Bruins did not have an organized practice yesterday.

Tonights game is at 7pm on NESN.

So weekend plans to go down to Boston this weekend for Polish Fest have hit a bit of snag. There is (and rightly so) a massive pro choice rally in Montpelier this Saturday starting at 11am. Right where I’m supposed to be getting the bus down to Boston. And at the same time as the bus is supposed to arrive so there’s a good chance the bus won’t be able to stop in Montpelier.

So f&*k you Supreme Court!

Ha! I did look at my winter boots this morning and think “yeah, I can probably put those away now.”

Gotta put the AC units in the windows. We can probably get away without them today, but it’s time.

My shorts come out when the temps hit the 30s too – but I’m talking celsius!

Morning folks,

Crunch time. Hopefully the TD Garden Bruins show up, rather than the PNC Arena version!

The hockey world championship starts tomorrow! GB are in it for the third straight year, but missing our two best forwards so not much chance of avoiding relegation. GB v USA is this time next week!

Hockey World’s are often overlooked as the Cup playoffs are happening. A great tournament, nonetheless. Maybe we’ll be allowed to watch some!

Good morning!
Hope springs eternal! Go Bruins! They have made things plenty difficult for themselves.. win tonight, then think about game 7.

We’re having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave!
The old Garden would be foggy tonight.
