on
Cool news out of Toronto, where Stratford’s Jaime Sifers has been recalled to the Leafs to go on their western swing. The Leafs have Jonas Frogren and Mike Van Ryn on IR and wanted a seventh defenseman on the trip. If he gets in — and Tim Wharnsby reports that Ron Wilson wants him to […] [Read More]

Shooting gallery

The Sound Tigers allowed 46 shots Friday to Hartford. Worcester was credited with 43 Saturday. In three of its past four games, the Sound Tigers have allowed at least 39 shots after not allowing more than 36 in their first 18 games.

There is stunning, mind-boggling, incredible news on the Island today, news that will shake your beliefs to the core and change the way you look at everything from Overspeed to the sun.

They just won't be defeated

on
This team is really starting to worry me. They proved tonight that they can win on just 13 minutes against a young, maybe-fragile team that’s nominally their archrival. This team might just be OK. While Danis kept them alive, a combinations shift united Dennis Packard, Ben Walter and Rob Hennigar at the start of the […] [Read More]

…not coming down the street with Dennis Packard’s uniform system. In the absence of his No. 22 sweater, which is supposedly lost in somebody’s package system somewhere in New Jersey (coincidentally enough) for some reason, Packard will wear 20 on the left side tonight. And while we’re on numbers, Hartford’s Owens-Pyatt-Urquhart is 46-47-48. Sweet. (Actually, […] [Read More]

The Islanders just gave up two goals in 10 seconds after Bill Guerin couldn’t score on a potentially game-tying breakaway, so Scott Gordon has swapped Peter Mannino in for Joey Mac at 6:58 of the third.

First down by penalty

on
After lots of football (one more to go, but this one won’t keep us from practice), some early notes: Greg Logan had this yesterday, but B. Mitchell Fritz is back. Doesn’t look like he’ll play tonight, though, nor does it look like it for Andrew MacDonald, though he said he is feeling OK. With eight […] [Read More]
