No Persson, but others back

|

John Persson’s return is delayed: The big winger had a setback in his recovery, Scott Pellerin said. So they’ll wait and watch him some more; not on the trip, though.

Chris Bruton and Marc Cantin do appear to be good to go, though, Cantin reunited with Calvin de Haan, and Mike Cornell reunited with first-night partner Dallas Jackson.

Both have one to scratch; looked like Justin Johnson and Seth Griffith. Bridgeport is in white on the road, so all is right with the world. (I think Worcester wears a third jersey on Saturdays, if I recall.)

Second time Bridgeport has had Pierre Lambert: The last was Oct. 26, 2012, at Worcester, and notes say it was his first AHL game.
