Year (ender) in review

on
So let’s see. To sum this thing up: –Kevin Poulin’s good. Jeez. Diving across for rebounds, getting beat only on breakaways and deflections… He’s 10-4. Not bad. –The PK has bounced back nicely. And while Worcester may be sputtering a bit with the advantage, that’s still 10 consecutive penalties killed for Bridgeport after it went […] [Read More]

Plan B1

on
With a little more time and a little more need for extra bodies than Bridgeport had just before Christmas, Chris Blight returns from Reading on another PTO. Mike Sellitto was sent back to Danbury. Blight is out there for warmup, but he looks like the extra. Worcester swapped a couple of centermen but otherwise looks […] [Read More]

Fighting Sharks

on
“I really liked the way our D played,” Pat Bingham said. “Our goaltender and D played really well. I thought it was a hard-fought two points.” Can’t argue. The Sharks are a pretty good team. The Sound Tigers have to fight hard to win here. They did. They won the second period in 52 seconds […] [Read More]

No need for Plan C

on
As foretold in the room this morning, there was a Plan B, and it has arrived in the person of Mike Sellitto, just recently relocated from Louisiana to Danbury. He’s wearing the No. 19 worn most recently by Chris Blight. But Jean Bourbeau caught a ride to Worcester and is out there, as well, and […] [Read More]

A) Hartford Wolf Pack B) Lowell Devils C) Hershey Bears D) Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins […] [Read More]

Trivia 2010: The Answers

on
OK, so let’s finish this off. Hope you guys were playing along at home; glad Andy had a good run at most of these. Here’s the original post. The answers to the questions in the paper were, of course, the Lowell Devils, and Howard Saffan/Kimber Auer…. no, Hershey and Capuano/Bingham, as you probably knew if […] [Read More]

From belated to late-night

on
Prescout. Worcester blew a 2-0, first-period lead but won in the bonus round. Condolences to Roy Sommer, whose father died right before Christmas, Eric Lindquist said on the broadcast. Sommer was expected back for the BST home-and-home. Speaking of bonus rounds, nice job by the Islanders, huh? As reported by the Whale, a big walkup […] [Read More]

Belated notes

on
Nothing really new today. Same 21, including Kohn, and three as yesterday. Plus, school being out, a few youngsters (on ATOs, no doubt). A short practice, with a lot of games this week. Pat Bingham was very happy with last night’s game. Several levels: The comeback, the belief that they can win every night and […] [Read More]

Capital idea: Liveblogging Bridgeport-Albany

on
First time missing an Albany game. Feels weird. We’ll be listening in on Carmine Vetrano on the BST broadcast at AHL Live. The box will appear here. Two refs tonight, Chris Brown and Francis Charron. From the list of players, it looks like Bourbeau and Friesen are the healthy scratches along with Poulin, but we […] [Read More]
