Morning Free Association: WTF, Part 5647

Last night the Bruins somehow snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Up by 4 goals in the second period, the middle frame being the one they most often play poorly, they looked to finally be back on track. It was at this time when I turned to Satan81 and stated that the last time I had personally been in attendance for a Bruins loss was earlier in the calendar year when the Habs defeated them. That also was the day when I cracked my tooth, leading to a year full of dental appointments to fix the situation. But, I digress. Continue reading

During Sunday night’s terribad shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, Torey Krug was felled by a hit into the glass by Claude Giroux late in the third period. Apparently, he came back for one shift, then left the ice for the rest of the game with a UBI. Continue reading

After an off-day on Wednesday, the team was back practicing at Warrior Arena in Brighton. As expected Zach Senyshyn was “recalled” from Providence and so was Peter Cehlarik, making Cameron Hughes assignment to Providence the real deal. Cehlarik was called up to play in place of Jake DeBrusk, who is currently ailing with a lower body injury sustained during the game against Montreal. Obviously he’s not traveling with the team to Detroit. Continue reading

Morning Free Association: This Week’s Transactions

Embed from Getty Images

After played three games in four days, the Boston Bruins appeared to have the day off. With their next game against the Red Wings in Detroit on Friday night, the team “assigned” both forwards they recalled from the Providence Bruins, Cameron Hughes and Zach Senyshyn. With the Bruins up against the cap, these transactions are likely paper in nature and not physical since every day a player is on the roster during the season, they count against the salary cap, which is figured daily.
