Morning Free Association: January 11

David Backes’ night in St. Louis. In his return to St. Louis, he was the focus pregame and in the first TV timeout (which NESN was very classy in ignoring so that they could show the tribute and the reactions of both David and his wife Kelly. It’s clear they both meant a lot to the city and the team. Continue reading

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

Patrice Bergeron gets a haircut

Patrice Bergeron and Toucher and Rich hosted The 9th Annual Cuts for a Cause at the Westin Boston Waterfront down in the Seaport District.

Bruins @Stars Part III 2/20/2016

McQuaid & Roussel got into a “discussion”. With their fists!

I’m gonna pretend I didn’t like that.
(No I’m not)

Bruins made 16 SOG to Stars’ 8. Scoring chances were there.
A scoring flurry by the Bruins, tied it up, with goals by Brad Marchand (Bringing him to 30 on the season – a personal best!), and Kevan Miller. Then Loui Eriksson had a brief encounter with our old nemesis “No Goal!”.

But on review, the puck went in on a shot that happened “before the whistle” (which I don’t think anyone actually blew). Meanwhile everyone watching was trying to figure out if it went in off a kicking skate or a stick tip.

Very inscrutable, ref, very inscrutable.

Bruins have the lead, 4-3.

Make it happen, Bruins.
Lets go Bruins!

Bruins-Preds Recap: Snoozeville

Snake Charmer
