…less so elsewhere. –Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 6, Hershey 2. The Penguins (8-0, two in shootouts) are 3-0 against the Bears (one in a shootout). –Denis Hamel to Adirondack. Paul Holmgren tells Tim McManus that and some more about Pat Maroon. At least one report says the Flyers have talked to the Islanders. [Read More]

“Poulin Wall”*

on
So there was this fan up in the upper deck, right over us in the press box. Moments after Alec Martinez’s shot from the right-circle faceoff dot made it past Dwight King’s screen and eluded Kevin Poulin, he started bellowing… something. It took me a few tries to figure it out. It sounded like “heavy.” […] [Read More]

A man who knows his nicknames

on
As he tweeted — and it stayed up this time — Rob Schremp is in ManchVegas. He’ll play the middle, with Rob Hisey shifted over to the wing for the evening. Things otherwise look familiar on both sides (with the addition on the ManchVegas side of newly minted captain Marc-Andre Cliche). Kevin Poulin starts in […] [Read More]

Breaking news on Twitter

on
Game in manchester tomorrow :) That was the tweet from noted hockey reporter RobSchremp at 7:14. The tweet has since been deleted. The Islanders aren’t confirming anything. But I’ll guess we should expect a conditioning stint by tomorrow morning. And apologies for not figuring out how to revert that graphic smily to text. [Read More]

The Islanders sent Nino Niederreiter back to the WHL this morning. If you’re a Sound Tigers fan but not an Islanders fan, this gives you a rooting interest, albeit one with a slim chance: You can root for the Portland Winterhawks to be upset and knocked out of the playoffs early.

Kids today

on
No real practice update, because after a drop-in, we were back on Route 8 for a jaunt to Black Rock for the Cool Fun 101 press conference. A few classrooms’ worth of kids gathered in the gym for a few minutes, met Storm, and peppered Howard Saffan with questions, many of them about Storm. Disheartening: […] [Read More]

Livechat, Tuesday, 1:30 (with updates)

on
You know the drill. Be here. Sound Tigers Hockey Live Chat with Michael Fornabaio Wrapup edit: As noted within, Hisey, Ullstrom and Poulin were out sick. Haley was also out again but was off to work out; supposed to be nothing serious. Elsewhere, how have I managed not to learn about the order of adjectives? […] [Read More]
