Morning Free Association: Local Kid Does Good

Saturday was another gameday for the Boston Bruins, playing the Philadelphia Flyers for the second time this preseason. The game was messy with penalties as it always is when these two teams meet. But the Bruins held the Flyers to no goals while they scored 4, including two from the new local guy.

Marc McLaughlin got the Bruins on the board in the second period on the power play and then scored another in the third for good measure.

Like AJ Greer in the first two games, he’s making a case for making the team out of camp. Especially since he’s scoring goals and doing more on the ice than young players who’ve been on the team for years.

Johnny Beecher also jumped into scoring with two of his own, including a SHG near the end of the game.

Taylor Hall was injured during the game and didn’t return for the third period. He’s listed as being “week to week” with an upper body injury, that head coach Jim Montgomery described as “more significant…than we expected yesterday.” That means he will miss some time at the start of the season.

Fabian Lysell also left the game in the first with an UBI and is not expected to play tonight but could see game action on Wednesday against the New York Rangers.

The Bruins play again tonight in Newark against the Devils on NESN+.

Morning,

good to see McLaughlin still has the scoring touch. Liked what we saw of him last year.

NHLtv still not active. “Information on the 2022-23 season coming soon”. It had better – the season starts on Friday!

Good morning,
Nice to see McLaughlin and Beecher making things happen. There will be a lil extra time to shine with the Hall injury. I’m looking forward to see who takes advantage of it. McLaughlin seems more ready. 7pm tonight! I wonder if Zacha plays or does his return get saved for the regular season? Might as well get it over with.
Together with some friends, we got Alice’s roof done Friday/ Saturday. Jo made a mighty beef stew for everyone Saturday. Loving community!

Sounds like a pretty satisfying weekend. It was a lil bit windy out this way to be up on a ladder though.
