Morning Free Association 4/4/16

Did I ever tell you that I had a Rottweiler once? She was a gorgeous gal, that Amber. So much her own dog, she loved her people, but she was fine to walk herself on her own. Many people have no idea just how funny and smart these dogs are. Amber had a Rottie friend, Thor, who lived down the street from her, and they would often make up games to play with each other like “Around Around Around, Through the Car” and “I Got the Stick”. The look that the above dog has is a look I have seen often especially when told she had to go home, like she had no idea what that meant.

So, why am I talking about my beloved, long deceased dog? Because I’d rather talk about dead dogs than the Bruins right now. They are doing themselves no favours with their play of late.

We Went “To Cuts for a Cause” and Now We’re Telling You About it

Patrice Bergeron gets a haircut

Patrice Bergeron receives a trim at the 9th annual Cuts For A Cause event to fund the Bruins Foundation and the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center

 

Patrice Bergeron and Toucher and Rich hosted The 9th Annual Cuts for a Cause at the Westin Boston Waterfront down in the Seaport District. The event has come a long way from it’s humble beginnings in the basement studio of WBCN, where Fred Toucher reminded us Aaron Ward and a handful of other Bruins players started this new charitable tradition to benefit multiple children’s charities.

Game Recap: The Devils Inside

So, how do we even? Can you even? I cannot EVEN.

Simply put, the Boston Bruins are picking a terrible time to suck. This is the point in the season when teams start to get hot, enter the playoffs on a winning streak, use that winning momentum to crush the life out of lesser teams that finally play like lesser teams. Instead, the Bruins play the part of Goliath and let David (not our Davids) slingshot a rock in their eye.

Knock it off, Bruins! Continue reading

Devils Night 2: The Deviling

Unfortunately, the Bruins Penalty Kill is not so great when Bergeron is in the box. Bad, Bergy, very bad!

Fortunately, the Bruins looked downright energetic after Travis Zajac’s PPG. Let’s hope that energy carries through the next periods.

I’m manning the Twitter account and find that it’s a fun way to take notes on the game. Expect the Game Recap to just be 200+ embedded Tweets. Really. Ok, not really. But REALLY.

(Yes, that editorial image is what you get when you’re lazy and you just type in Bergeron at Getty Images.)

Devils Night: Bruins at Devils 3/29

 

The Bruins are in Newark to play the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center tonight at 7pm. The Bruins still cling to third in the Atlantic with 88 points with the Detroit Red Wings breathing down their necks in the first Wild Card spot at 87 points. What’s worse is that the Wings are playing the Habs in Montreal tonight, which makes me want to root for Team Meteor to win in Quebec. So, as stated in a previous Game Recap, a win here is a Super Duper Important Win™. Continue reading
