Local sport network NESN (New England Sports Network) has been doing a great public service.  They've been running classic Bruins games, and classic college hockey games.  Last night my son and I watched a Bruins game from November 1989 against the Canadiens.  My son's response at one point was a reality check about my age.

"Look how slow these guys are.  Pasta (Pastrnak) would absolute kill these goalies."

He was talking about Roy.  :lol:

Goalies like Roy, Hasek and Brodeur would still be good in today's game. The standup goalies from pre-mid '80s would get fried.

Another classic line he broke out was, "This is like watching a very physical men's league game."  The difference in the overall speed of the game is definitely jarring.

Sad news,  a second Ottawa Senator has tested positive for COVID 19.  This affects San Jose, Anaheim and LA since the Sens last road trip.  :o

Just when you thought there was no way for their season to get worse lol
Let's hope that malaria/HIV treatment works on Tuesday, because I'm tired of watching table tennis from Russia to get my sport kicks.

Squirrel waterskiing has you bored already?
No, I go for the heavy stuff...Belarus soccer. Do you know they haven't had any cases yet? Lucky bastards!  :wtf:

Yeah I believe that....probably got some just not saying. :eh:  I watched 2017 Stanley Cup finals on Demand yesterday, was from Showtime series All Access.  Was better than I remembered.  Funny how it was uncensored, surprise that hockey players like to drop the F bomb so much :laughing guy:

Belarus President Lukaszenko claims all you have to do is spend some time in a spa, wash your hands using alcohol, and have a shot of vodka. Way ahead of you, Lu! :hail:

Tuesday night NHL channel had both Stanley Cup wins for the Avs 1996 and 2001.  Really enjoyed reliving those games, the rats on the ice in Florida.  Made me remember and appreciate how we got the Denver Grizzlies moved here to SLC because of the Avs.  And that same year we were in playoffs in IHL and people here were throwing trout on the ice when the Grizz scored :laughing guy:
I never liked Roy that much when he was with Montreal but I enjoyed him with the Avs.  Forgot about him razzing Jeremy Roenik during the playoffs..can't hear what he is saying I have two Stanley Cup rings in my ears :smash:
What I didn't remember that the goaltender for the Florida Panthers Vanbiesbrouck ended up being Brodeur's backup in 2001. :ph34r:

Sure seems like longer than 2 weeks since I saw a game :sigh:

I'm watching the 2010 first round playoff games against Nashville in my "man cave". McCreary, :moon: (I can't believe he was still in the league then) gives Kopecky a boarding penalty. I start screaming "what a terrible call, ****, and so on". My wife walks in and asks me "Did they start playing again?"  Enough said... :sarcastic:

I hope all of you & yours are doing well in this strange new world in which we reside! As a season ticket holder and in the "Bolt For Life" system which is just a fancy way to say I make monthly payments as opposed to a lump sum payout. We were officially notified that our 1st payment for the 20/21 (this month) season will be postponed/ delayed but not cancelled! I just assume to make the payment so my monthly payments will not increase as the 1st months (maybe more) will be redistbuted/ prorated to the remainder of the payment year. Luckey enough for me my job is still up and going as construction is deemed as essential! My better 1/2 and are are so blessed as I know alot of folks out there are unable to go to work. There is always a chance our job could get shut down but it will take the sheriff at a locked gate to keep me from showing up! So it's not like I can't make my scheduled payments. Only time will tell. Back to hockey lol I did get to watch the rerun of the stadium series between the Flyers vs Penguins. To top off the awesomeness of how that game was, it was in a miked up format. It really gave another dimension to the game as I got to hear all the smack the players and coaches say to each other, the other team and of course the zebra's. Also wactched some reruns of the Olympics mirical on ice games. Be safe out the everyone...

The NHLPA voted yet again for the best jersey in the league. The results were predictable: Hawks 28.25% of the votes, Knights 6.83%, Leafs 6.83%, Rangers 6.38%...

I'm contractually obligated to hate the Blackhawks, but those are sweet jerseys. There's something about that blood red . . .

The Blues have done some good ones, but there are so many iconic sweaters out there. My responses wouldn't include Vegas, but nearly all of the Original Six would be in the top ten.

And I would have been a fan of the Bruins come playoff time, thinking that the Hawks probably didn't make it to the top 16. I know that in some countries, they're starting to award the championship to whoever was in first place before "the pause." I don't think that's going to happen in the NHL, though.

The only team that seemed to have their number was me Bolts! Tampa was playing their best hockey of the season even enduring the injury bug and a "next man up" scenario. The last game Tampa and Boston played was an indication of how intense that playoff series was gonna be! Seems like 10,000 years ago.. :( :( :(

I miss my :hockey: ...

I sincerely doubt there is going to be a finish to the season.  They may do the awards but I would be very surprised if they had a playoff, just doesn't look like this virus is going to be easily managed.  Wish it wasn't true but I think the writing is on the wall. :sigh:

Will our summer be affected ? Probably.
