The kid is alright

on
He’s only 18, but Ryan O’Marra’s got a confidence that belies his years. He scored two goals tonight, and he could have had four. Four would have been a tie, but hey, what a night, anyway. Things weren’t pretty in the second, but they could have been a lot better. Philly was already outshooting the […] [Read More]

It's an Erie coincidence

on
Two things, one of which made the story, another of which didn’t… 1) Probably should have pointed it out in the story, and it just hit me that I didn’t: Next year. O’Marra, being just 18 and having played only three years of major junior, can’t play for Bridgeport next season (except, like now, after […] [Read More]

Oh really? No…

So I’m basically useless to you guys (told you I stunk yesterday) except for this: O’Marra’s been assigned No. 20. It’s also good timing in that Danbury needed Omicioli and Larocque back. Hamilton won’t make the trip but could be back Saturday, so O’Marra appears to slot nicely in Omicioli’s spot, at least in theory. […] [Read More]

Third place, for now

on
Another one of those “Whoa” Hershey games, compounded by being the worst I’ve been in a long while and the earliest deadlines I’ve ever faced outside of the holidays… Talk was it was Steve Regier who put that puck in at the end, which makes sense, the way he skated out to the neutral zone […] [Read More]

Darned Ivy Leaguers

on
So the ding on his head couldn’t have been that bad: Jeff Hamilton took the whole practice, should be back Wednesday, and even did a little creative problem-solving…. Steve Regier’s Olympics continued, just like last week, with slap shots from just above the goal line, this time to what would be the goalie’s right. The […] [Read More]

Five out of six/five in three

on
This one seemed to be all about intensity. Springfield had it for 40 minutes and escaped even. Bridgeport needed it, was getting it from its goaltender and in spurts otherwise, and finally pulled it out in the last 20 minutes. And what a three games this turned out to be. This was the 12th time […] [Read More]

Capital punishment

on
So Dave Baseggio broke out tonight with a combination, Nos. 2 and 10 on the great hockey list of Good Things: “Good things happen when you go to the net and throw the puck at the net.” Since the gamer was necessarily short tonight, a little runthrough… 1, Bridgeport, Tunik 4 (Omicioli), 11:44. Martin Sonnenberg […] [Read More]

Pronounced just like it’s spelled

on
Bridgeport brought in centerman Pete Tsimikalis on an amateur tryout this morning. He was Oshawa’s captain this year and scored 99 points. He’ll fill in for Jeff Hamilton, who — it’s that C word, but a mild one — skated this morning and is day-to-day. Tsimikalis (accent the “ka”) is wearing No. 43. He’s the […] [Read More]
