Ha, Marchand had an open blue line empty net goal and went for the assist instead. And Swayman had 2 bites at the apple.

Goalie hug, hurray.

I actually hated that.

Unless you’re on a clear 2 on 0, you bury the ENG.
In general, I agree, but let's be honest. These are basically preseason games at this point, I'm okay with trying to help Pasta pot his 50th against that fucking team.

They were up 2 in what was essentially a meaningless game. He was trying to get Pasta his 50th. I’m fine with it, I trust his decision making would be different in the playoffs. It’s the same thing with the goalies shooting. Don’t think they’ll be firing away come the playoffs.

For the gambling addicts, the over-under line was 6.5. That EN goal could mean something LoL

What a weird game. Bruins had five utterly ineffective power plays, and the missed calls on Montreal were still egregious. Multiple high sticks. A month late high hit on Bergeron in open space.

More in the "I love this team" file:

“I do think there’s a physical and a mental benefit,” coach Jim Montgomery said. “We’re playing four games every week. They’re each getting two games a week. Two games a week is perfect, actually, when you have a split. It’s not perfect for the players. It’s perfect for our goalies. We’re fortunate that we have two elite goaltenders. They obviously are great teammates. Their goalie hug is something I admired from afar. It spoke to the togetherness. It spoke to the Bruins culture. I think it’s awesome.”

Their relationship stretches off the ice, too. On Wednesday, Ullmark hosted Swayman and his father, Ken, at his home for fika, the Swedish term for coffee and snacks with friends. In Swayman’s opinion, the cinnamon buns that Moa, Ullmark’s wife, bakes have no equal.

“My dad asks him how he’s doing every time I talk to him,” Swayman said of Ullmark. “It’s like a second son. It’s such a special relationship. To see it translate on the ice so well for both of us is really special. We’re finding a formula on how to do that every night.”

Marchand *did* jump him. But he wasn't the bad guy.

Nah... I've spread out to some different highlihgts... I think one of the first one's I saw was filled with too many Habs/Marchand haters... I'm seeing a lot more "good for Marchands" now.
