Killed, revived, killed: Hershey postgame

on
The penalty kill had come around the past five games. Less so today, giving up two on a boarding major (5-foot-11, 186-pound Sebastian Collberg) and one on a five-on-three. Ballgame. Sort of. Bridgeport fought its way back, one of its most dominant games at even strength in a while, helped by the defense getting involved […] [Read More]

Not today: Hershey pregame

on
Pretty sure Brett Gallant and the Sound Tigers were hoping he’d be ready for this one. After that fight with Michael Sdao last night, he won’t play today. What can you do? Well, you can put Dyson Stevenson in, for one thing. That appears to be the only switch for Bridgeport, aside from putting Kevin […] [Read More]

Sadly rare Binghamton liveblog

on
Bridgeport pays its lone visit to Binghamton tonight. After they were division rivals and, for one brief, shining moment, playoff rivals, they have met just once in each city for six years in a row now. Understandable but disappointing. Anyway. We’ll be listening to Grady Whittenburg (audio / video). We’ll be following the assembled Matt […] [Read More]

Syracuse liveblog, mathematically alive edition

on
It’s ’80s Night in Syracuse, so maybe they throw together a 7-6 game or something like that. We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). The box should be here (Garrett Rank/Tim Kotyra, Brian Oliver), and this should be Binghamton-WBS. Was asked on Twitter about the […] [Read More]

Paliotta signs with the Blackhawks

on
Westport’s Mike Paliotta agreed to terms on his ELC with the Blackhawks, Chicago announced this afternoon. Paliotta was their third-round pick in 2011 and just finished four years at Vermont. [Read More]

New guy in net: Thursday notes

on
Aside from the new goalie — C.J. Motte will get a start this weekend, Brent Thompson said, but he wasn’t committed to when — status quo for Bridgeport this morning. Brett Gallant’s status appears to depend on conditioning; seemed to be OK to go otherwise. Harry Zolnierczyk remains out; didn’t make the trip with them […] [Read More]

Waiting on Harry: Wednesday notes

on
After a workout yesterday, the Sound Tigers got back on the ice Wednesday without Harry Zolnierczyk. Brent Thompson doesn’t expect him to play this three-in-three weekend. Brett Gallant practiced with contact, though, and his conditioning is coming along. They’ll see how it goes over the next couple of days. Reportedly Ferris State goalie C.J. Motte […] [Read More]

Forgetting the past: Binghamton postgame

on
For the sake of all that’s holy: Forgot to ask Mouillierat why he left warmup early. Other things had happened in between, like this (in the Idaho version, I think that’s Chris Bruton who follows him behind the net) and six more goals. It’d been a while since they’d gone to center ice and saluted […] [Read More]

Mouillierat goes high wrap (updated)

on
Guess Kael Mouillierat was fine, early warmup departure or no. The AHL tweeted a .gif of his opening the scoring tonight with the ol’ High Wrap, picking the puck up on his stick blade, lacrosse-style whipping it around from Peter Mannino’s right and scoring. Edit, 10:45 p.m.: Should’ve put this on earlier, but the Sound […] [Read More]

College brackets, pro questions: Binghamton pregame

on
Only one little swap had been scheduled for Bridgeport: This is how they were originally supposed to go, but Kael Mouillierat went to the room early. Didn’t catch what was up there. Possible Chris Langkow stays him for him, but we’ll see how the lineup looks. Edit: Mouillierat’s in, so guess it wasn’t anything big. […] [Read More]
