It can’t hurt to change the calendar, right? After this game at Wilkes-Barre, Bridgeport finally gets out of 2011. You may remember that, a year ago at this time, after a New Year’s Eve win, they were 18-14-1-2. And since then, not a lot has gone right. They’re not scoring, so they’ve got to shut […] [Read More]

Don’t come out flat

Boy, I love coming here. But boy, I’ve got to avoid I-84. Hurray for AAA. Now I just need a tire. Hey, made it in one piece, anyway, albeit too late to try to catch up downstairs. Right now, my worst problem is that the Penguins’ warmup (I hope) sweaters have very-light-gold numbers, and when […] [Read More]

Flip that calendar: Norfolk liveblog 2

on
Including Aprils and Octobers, Bridgeport had played regular-season games in 66 calendar months through the end of December 2010. Only somewhere between eight and 11 of them wound up with a lower points percentage than Bridgeport will post this calendar year. Up to five of those months will be short ones, too, either Aprils or […] [Read More]

Trivia 2011

on
Edit: The answers are now here. This was a long year around here, by any measure (well, by any that don’t include actual measurements, anyway; by those, it was the same 365-with-a-quarter-deferred days as usual).

The Sound Tigers released Nic Riopel from his PTO this morning. Before you start looking for a chain reaction of goaltending transactions, instead read the Greenville News and wonder if this isn’t just picking up his ECHL team for the night.
