Cizikas player of the week

on
The league announced Casey Cizikas as its Player of the Week this morning. A mere nine points in three games (2-1-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, in order) for the rookie; a mere 18 points in 11 games this month. Probably the funniest thing about this week is that Cizikas went on this nine-point tear after they named […] [Read More]

Deepest apologies to Bruce Springsteen. And his fans. And his non-fans. All of you. Sorry. We’ll liveblog game thoughts here, or again tweet if we’re moved. According to the board in the East dressing room, Casey Cizikas is with Carter Camper of Providence as the 13th/14th forwards, Cam Atkinson plays with Corey Locke and Kyle […] [Read More]

They're getting refortified

on
Mr. Colley, meet Mr. Stirling. A few things before the game tonight (another post coming), after lunchtime entertainment listening to a guy tell the sandwich guy he ordered turkey, “and what are you trying to pull,” and the guy starting to yell and scream and go on and on and on… and then watching security […] [Read More]

Trouble busing in from out of state

on
And RIP, Bert Parks. This will be a liveblog of some sort off Sunday’s festivities. Might tweet some too, depending on the feeling. Jamie Palatini and Casey Cizikas came down this morning. They’re on madly short rest, because the bus didn’t pull in from Syracuse until about 4:30 in the morning, and then they were […] [Read More]

Syracuse liveblog

No Syracuse for us. We’ll be listening to Jason Lockhart on AHL Live (Edit: try this) and following Lindsay Kramer and Jamie on Twitter. Bridgeport goes for its seventh consecutive win on the road. Appears the same lineup, though not sure about the goalie. Minor alumni note: Binghamton traded Max Gratchev to Springfield, though he’ll […] [Read More]

Six-game road winning streaks

on
Feb. 1, 2002: Bridgeport 1 at Springfield 7. The bus breaks down on the way to the then-Springfield Civic Center. Rick DiPietro fights Dieter Kochan, and then pretty much everyone else fights everyone else. The team falls to 17th overall. “I think it could be good for the team to have something like this,” rookie […] [Read More]

A place of their own

on
Bridgeport hasn’t lost with the clock running since New Year’s Eve. You wonder, if a game like this happened in December, what it might’ve been like after one. But Kevin Poulin played out of his gourd, which isn’t really news anymore. And then Bridgeport started scoring. “You’ve got a guy like Z (Casey Cizikas) contributing […] [Read More]
