BSJ Daily Briefing 10.09.19: Bruins move to 3-0 with impressive win in Vegas, LeVangie out for Sox

[get_snippet] [theme-my-login show_title=0]

Good morning!

A few random thoughts while I wonder if the Bruins miss last year's China trip ... nah ....

  • The Bruins continued their sizzling start to the season with a 4-3 triumph over the Golden Knights that didn't feel that close.
  • I don't know what Jack Edwards did in Vegas, but he sounded extra pumped up during that contest. Good morning at the blackjack tables ... Jack?
  • Nice to see the top line finally start playing this season.
  • Bruins dodged a few bullets with Matt Grzelcyk and Tuukka Rask battling through some stuff.
  • Karson Kuhlman is fun to watch. Can we get him a nickname, like Circle K? He does skate in a lot of circles. I dunno. Thinking out loud here.
  • Find someone who loves you as much as Connor loves Charlie Coyle. I think his goal this season is to get Coyle in as many headlines as possible. (I kid because I love ...)
  • Dana LeVangie is out as pitching coach ... nobody loves a scapegoat like the Red Sox.
  • BTW, how much do you think it infuriates the Red Sox every time the Rays win a game and it's mentioned how they have the lowest payroll in baseball, with a stocked farm system? Tampa $56 million, Boston $240 million.
  • Game 5 in Houston should be fun. And there are two Game 5s today.
  • Who's going to play in more games, Robert Williams or Isaiah Wynn?
