Who’s the new guy? Jack Capuano replaced Eric Cairns Scott Pellerin replaced Brent Thompson Howard Saffan […] [Read More]

Meant to post these like three days ago; sorry “Esoteric” is our middle name around here, but maybe and admittedly a little too much so this time around. Here’s the answers: [Read More]

Headed upstate

Mostly the same group today as yesterday, including Nathan McIver; he’ll make the trip and see how he is in 24 hours. We’ll be liveblogging from the living room, so drop by. If you feel like actually getting out and watching hockey, there’s a New Year’s Eve doubleheader at Webster Bank Arena: Notre Dame-Fairfield vs. […] [Read More]

Back to the front

on
So the lineup looked fairly straightforward this morning around 11. But apparently that’s when they found out that they’d be without Brett Gallant. Shades of Jon Gleed going from Subway to standout, Sean Backman scored a couple tonight. “It feels good to score goals, to help the team win,” Backman said. “A big part of […] [Read More]

Gallant suspended/Nelson injury/new D

Though it looks like Nino Niederreiter is ready to go for tonight’s game, Bridgeport will be without Brett Gallant. The league gave Gallant a three-game suspension for leaving the bench on what it deemed a legal line change, but for the purpose of starting a fight with Dylan McIlrath. He’ll miss tonight, Monday in Glens […] [Read More]

Hartford shutdown

Tough place to play sometimes, I said to Kevin Poulin. He kinda shrugged. (Maybe he was already composing this tweet.) They handled the Whale easily, scored early again. Still, some moments early where it looked as if, with half a step more, the Whale might have jumped on top, or tied it up, or made […] [Read More]

Another rematch

on
A few changes for Bridgeport: Nino Niederreiter gets the night off after the stick to the face, though it sounds as if they don’t think it’s serious; Nathan McIver apparently a minor tweak from last night. For the Whale, no Micheal Haley, who didn’t return after the fight with McIver last night. But Dylan McIlrath […] [Read More]
