Albany pregame

|

One skater swap for Bridgeport, though it’s the same 20: Halmo and Kabanov, with switches on the wings as appropriate. There’s also a switch in goal. They’ll have one to scratch, but it looked like Jackson.

There is meanwhile an absurd amount of tiny glitter up here in the press box. I don’t want to know what kind of WWE show this was Friday.

BRIDGEPORT
F: Watkins (C)-Nelson-Backman
Niederreiter-Sundstrom-Kabanov
DeFazio-Campbell-Riley
Halmo-Hill-Huxley
D: Donovan-Wishart
Ness-McIver (A)
Cantin-Landry (A)
(Jackson-scratch)
G: DiPietro
Reiter

ALBANY
F: Whitney-DeSimone-Anderson (A)
Wiseman-Zalewski-Sislo
Hoeffel-Sestito (A)-D. Zajac
Berube-Wohlberg-Janssen

Leach (C)-Burlon
G: Kinkaid
Wedgewood

R: Knorr, Leduc. L: F. Murphy, Wahl.

While we note those officials, a note that today up in Hartford, longtime linesman Marty Demers is working his last game. We selfishly hope this retirement ends like the last one and we see him on the ice again. If not, we’ll take seeing him in the press boxes as we did in the last interregnum.

And happy St. Patrick’s Day. The hopes, dreams, and songs of rebellion of a substantial numbers of my ancestors are incorporated herein as if stated in full.
