Morning Free Association: Mixed Bag

After what seemed like a few years in between games, the Boston Bruins played two games this weekend back-to-back. This lull in the schedule is the last we’ll see for a while.

On Saturday, the Bruins fully beat the stuffing out of the Flyers 5-2 in Philly, including 2 goals from offensive powerhouse Derek Forbort. Charlie McAvoy fought! These two teams hate each other. Linus Ullmark finally looked great.

Then back home on Sunday, the Flames had their way with the B’s, 4-0. Jeremy Swayman got little help from his seemingly befuddled teammates, especially in a sequence that saw him give up a SHG and shortly after, another goal when in each instance his team served up the puck to a Flames player in their own zone. At least old pal Dan Vladar had himself a game and a shutout.

The Bruins are back in action the day before and after Thanksgiving this week.
