Morning Free Association 3/10/16

Spoons and Pasta attemp to enter Carolina's zone.

Good morning, everyone! Nothing of consequence to the Bruins’ place in the standings happened last night. Big night tonight, though! The Bruins host the Hurricanes, the Red Wings host the Jets in a battle of winged things, and Florider hosts Ottawer. If the Bruins get at least a point tonight, they’ll take over the top spot in the Atlantic Division (until Tampa Bay catches up with their games in hand).

The NHL announced four outdoor games for next season. A few days ago, they announced that the Jets will participate in their first-ever outdoor game, hosting the Oilers on October 23. The Leafs will celebrate their 100th season by hosting the Centennial Classic in a rematch against the Red Wings on January 1. Blues will host the Winter Classic the very next day at Busch Stadium, facing the Chicago Blackhawks. This will be the Hawks’ fifth outdoor game, but before you grumble about how sick of the Hawks you are, remember that they suck at outdoor games (1-3-0). Lastly, the Penguins will host the Flyers at Heinz Field on February 18.

The game started out with a ton of intensity, all of which boiled up to matching minors from the 11’s, Jimmy “Mayes” Hayes & Brian Boyle for roughing. The pace of the 1st period is up there, both teams not giving up much, however both teams get some good chances. The game has some snarl to it, which is always entertaining. At 16:26 Chara goes to the box for high sticking. Marchand gets the best chance of the period however and is robbed by Bishop.
