And we’re just living in it.
For those of us who were unable to watch through the end of a late game in a distant time zone, the Bruins 3rd period dominance happened again.
The Bruins played the Los Angeles Kings at the absurdly named “Crypto.com Arena” last night, and went into the 2nd intermission tied 2-2, with goals from David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand.
What happened then?
Trent Frederick happened.
In a span of 34 seconds of game time, Trent Frederick would be part of 2 zone entries, would circle around Pheonix Copley’s net and knock in a deflection and later a direct shot, putting the Bruins up by 2 points.
David Pastrnak would top it off at 5-2 late in the period. The Bruins have now won 30 games (which ties them for 2nd fastest team to get to 30 wins in NHL history)
The Bruins will take on the San Jose Sharks at 10:30PM EST on Saturday night and the Anaheim Ducks at 10:30 on Sunday night.
Late game heroics again! Nice! TFreddy is really coming into his own. His skating has vastly improved and he lets the scraps come to him now.
Chechia lived and died by late game heroics all tournament. That caught up to them last night. USA topped Sweden for the bronze in a wild one…. 8-7 in ot! US had it won several times, but let Sweden back in. Fabian Lysell received a 5 minute major and game misconduct for head contact, finished with zero points in seven games.
That rain we’re supposed to get is snow… piling up fast.
Ok, perhaps I’m getting a little too lazy. I went to bed not knowing the outcome of the game, then wandered over here late this morning, still not knowing the outcome of this game. Then it becomes obvious that an article didn’t get posted.
My mornings are a mess.
The article didn’t get posted because once the goalie hugs happened, I closed my eyes and committed to full sleep.
Another two-goal game for TFreddy! And another two-thirds of a Gordie Howe hat-trick? We haven’t had anyone score an actual hat-trick this year have we? I don’t recall one.
Caught extended highlights of the World Juniors final. Feel a bit sorry for the Czechs, especially the goalie, although from what I saw Canada should have won it a lot easier than they did. Atmosphere looked fantastic!
I’m disappointed that I missed most of WJC, but there is only so much hockey that I can consume. I find that I’m a little jealous of folks who can follow the young players and have intelligent opinions about NHL prospects, but it also feels a bit weird for the younger groups, as those are kids, and really ought to be busy being kids rather than athletes.
That’s a very good point, although I wonder how many kids who don’t start in the younger groups end up making it. Not just in hockey, but in any of the major sports.
Although these players are young, not have already been drafted and some have already played in the show. Remember, the NHL used to draft 17 year olds. Wasn’t Bobby Or committed to the Bruins at 14 or something crazy like that?
Most have been drafted
