Camp, Day Last: Waiting for Word

on
Looked like a bit of fatigue out there today at Cromwell. Lots of skating this week, lots of work, lots of letting guys show what they could do. Don’t know if any of the young guys exactly made themselves indispensible, but they also just about all fit in. Wasn’t the most exciting game, especially with […] [Read More]

Where are you?

on
Noticed something kind of funny when I walked into the Bridgeport dressing room complex for the first time this season. To picture it, imagine you’re coming in from the runway after a period. You walk through the door, which opens in and to your right, not quite up against a support column that juts out […] [Read More]

Devils' Due

on
While the big club lost 2-1 on a couple of power-play goals, the Sound Tigers lost 3-2 to Lowell. Just talked to Jack Capuano for a few minutes; he said they got outshot 13-1 in the first period but finished with a 30-25 edge. “We got a little bit of a slow start. The kids […] [Read More]

White on white…

on
Both New Jersey and the Islanders have come out for warmup in white uniform systems. Hmm. Edit: All is well: Isles in blue, Devils in white for the game. Dubielewicz vs. Brodeur. And Phil Giubileo is joining Steve Mears on the Islanders’ Webcast… [Read More]

Like that band-aid company

on
Utah coach Jason Christie asked Gregg Johnson about the $100. What $100, Gregg asked. The $100 Keith Johnson gave Gregg, Christie joked, so Gregg wouldn’t show him up. Keith had a goal and an assist Friday in that 2-0 win, and he’s right there in the mix of people who won’t be making any decisions […] [Read More]

Camp, Day 5: Cloak 'n' Dagger

on
How’s this: It’s pretty clear that some people are going up for the Islanders-Rangers game, but the Islanders haven’t released their names. They apparently don’t want the Rangers to know who’s dressing at the Garden. For a preseason game. Keep your Yankees-Red Sox, people. Anyway, Mole and Ouellet will be the goalies tonight in Shelton.

RIP, Darcy Robinson

on
Former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton defenseman Darcy Robinson died today in an Italian League game. Robinson, 26, played parts of four seasons with the Pens; this was his third season with Asiago. You may best remember him as the guy whom Kevin Colley hit in the first game of the 2004 playoffs; it was the last AHL playoff […] [Read More]

Camp, Day 4: But first, we pause

on
We gathered this morning to pray for the soul of Bill Gonillo — which, as one of his cousins alluded to in one of three inspiring eulogies, seems like redundant effort. If Billy’s not up there already… A beautiful service, and a beautiful turnout: A cross-section of the state’s media, schools, teams. I hope his […] [Read More]
