BSJ Thanksgiving Briefing 11.27.19: Bruins destroy Canadiens, Kyrie-less Nets visit Celtics, Patriots-Texans

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

Good morning!

A few random thoughts while I wonder what Kyrie will be doing tonight...

  • Not sure Bruins fans have had many more satisfying games like last night. Bruins were at the Bell Centre to take on the Canadiens with Claude Julien on the other bench, Carey Price in net ... and the Bruins wound up winning 8-1.
  • Price was bounced near the start of the third period, David Pastrnak (hat-trick) apparently will never stop scoring ... think Bruins fans needed a smoke after that one.
  • Sean Kuraly also had a really strong night.
  • Anyone else up for keeping David Krejci with the top line and having Patrice Bergeron give the second line some punch?
  • The Nets are in town tonight but Kyrie is not ... is anyone at all surprised by this? Called this when the schedule came out. Oh my arm, I think it's broke.
  • Will be updating the unit rankings from the Cowboys game as soon as this is over. Bill Belichick embarrassed Jason Garrett. Not that it's hard.
  • Today will turn the page to the Texans ... don't think anyone feels Houston will be competitive.
  • Don't forget, it's Jack Easterby Revenge Week!
  • I got after it again with Felger on a few topics. Man, he's infuriating sometimes. They don't know how to lift weights?
