Stretch run (without Stretch): Thursday notes

on
Roughly status quo today at practice. Some rejuggling. Ryan Pulock left early; minor thing, Brent Thompson said (don’t think it’s related to the last injury), should be fine for the trip to Springfield tomorrow for two games. Then back home for Wilkes-Barre on Sunday to start March. (How’d that happen?) Bridgeport mostly playing for pride, […] [Read More]

That time of year: Stretch traded, Wednesday notes

on
C.J. Stretch, Brent Thompson said this morning, is a really nice player on a good team. When the Sound Tigers signed him, that’s what they were hoping to be. Oklahoma City’s leading the Western Conference; that’s what they are. They know Stretch well. And they wanted him, and today, the Sound Tigers sent him back […] [Read More]

Keeping it interesting: Norfolk pregame

on
Feb. 22s are crazy. (OK, sometimes*, not always.) Though some of the guys who could make this interesting are suspended, if you missed it earlier. With those two guys out, Bridgeport’s two healthy scratches from last night, Matt Lashoff and Carson McMillan, get in, McMillan making his Bridgeport debut. Looks like Norfolk’s got seven defensemen […] [Read More]

So long, old friend: Adieu to Norfolk

on
Ah, Norfolk. Reachable by the coolest route possible — it’s a bridge, then a tunnel, then a bridge, then a tunnel, then a bridge, with a pier in the middle where you can hang out? Sign me the heck up — but so far away that I only got there a few times. There was […] [Read More]

Liam O’Brien is also […] [Read More]
