Not over the weather…

on
The stars seemed aligned. Islanders stuck at six defensemen for a while. Sound Tigers call a guy up. (Welcome back, Steve Oleksy.) And there’s a defenseman missing from practice. Well, obviously, that all has to mean that… Nope. Ty Wishart’s sick. (Guess there’s something going around the team.) They gave him the morning off, partly […] [Read More]

Watch your foot

on
The Isles’ forward corps got a little thinner after they discovered Jay Pandolfo has a broken foot. Four weeks is Christmas Eve; six is Jan. 7. No immediate move (at least that I’ve heard; Bridgeport was off today). The Big Club has one extra skater right now, and from today’s practice lines, that’s Marty Reasoner. […] [Read More]

Don’t break the scoreboard

on
This was so close to a six-point weekend. They got four. They could’ve had more; they could’ve denied Manchester any, really, though instead the Monarchs come away with four. They allowed a few too many odd-man rushes today, surrendered two leads, then came back from a deficit of their own. They got caught puck-staring on […] [Read More]

Rematch in Bridgeport/DiBenedetto returns

on
Bridgeport gets Justin DiBenedetto back after four games, and he slides right back into his familiar spot with Cizikas and Wallace. That moves the other left wingers down a spot as Trevor Gillies sits out after last night’s harsh meeting with the side boards. Anton Klementyev sits for Benn Olson. A switch in goal for […] [Read More]

Manchester, part 1 of 2 (edited)

on
Will add some thoughts on this at home; got a ride I don’t want to keep waiting too long, and don’t forget, rematch tomorrow (with a Sacred Heart bonus thereafter). But: –Trevor Gillies didn’t play most of the last two periods. He went headlong into the boards after missing a check on Jake Muzzin. Brent […] [Read More]

Untraditional weekend

on
Appears to be the same lineup, except in goal, for Bridgeport as last night, though Olson again is on for warmup. The Sound Tigers are wearing white tonight, which means the home team will be in the dark sweater in all three Bridgeport games this weekend. Of course, in all three cases, it’ll be a […] [Read More]

Big win

on
Overall, a pretty solid game. “You can always improve,” Brent Thompson added after this 6-2 win, on his way out the door to Manchester. Defensively; handling the rush, perhaps. There were moments when the Whale took it to Bridgeport. Early on, but as usual lately, the penalty kill helped slow that. Late, but by then, […] [Read More]

A Very Black Friday

on
With Trevor Frischmon reportedly banged up (“day-to-day,” per Brent Thompson), missing his first game in a long while, left winger Blair Riley comes up from Chicago of the ECHL (former BST trainer Mike Schroeder’s team) on a PTO. Riley’s wearing No. 5, the lowest number worn by a Sound Tigers forward by a Sound Tiger […] [Read More]
