NHL attrition: Friday bits

Costly game up in Boston last night: Josh Bailey breaks his hand, and Zdeno Chara tears his left PCL. Still, the Islanders had Mikhail Grabovski in a regular spot today, appears no immediate recall. And since Bridgeport is up on the Rock, that’s helpful. (Of course, head injuries, you never know. But they’ve got Eric […] [Read More]

SHU: Shuttles to home games

With Colgate coming to Milford Ice Pavilion Friday and Saturday (at No. 4 in both polls, the highest-ranked opponent ever coming in to Marty Roos’ barn), Sacred Heart announced that the Student Union will run shuttles from campus to men’s games in Milford and some women’s games at The Rinks at Shelton. So, Pioneer kids, […] [Read More]

Return of 13: Thursday notes

For the moment Thursday at Wonderland, the absence of Anders Lee moved Sebastian Collberg up to that spot and Colton Gillies into Collberg’s spot. News at noon that Colin McDonald has cleared waivers, well, that makes it all a question again. Brent Thompson professed not to have a definite answer where McDonald would go if […] [Read More]

Thoughts to Ottawa/McDonald on waivers: Wednesday notes

Thoughts and prayers with the people of Ottawa. Jeez. The mundane organizational news broke not long after practice broke up here and possibly did on the Island as well: Colin McDonald has been placed on waivers, presumably to come here if he clears tomorrow at noon. Arthur Staple says the logical should follow: Anders Lee […] [Read More]

Familiar line change/Huskies vs. Bobcats: Tuesday notes

One swap — well, one and a half — from Sunday’s lines to note: A trio we saw a bit Sunday, Lee-Quine-Mouillierat, was together, giving a longer look at Alan Quine in the middle and Kael Mouillierat on the wing. That put Sebastian Collberg where Quine started Sunday, with Mike Halmo and Johan Sundstrom. Mark […] [Read More]

Stockton notes, Week 1

An irregular, though I hope much more regular than last year, feature peeking across the country… Oct. 17: Bakersfield 3, Stockton 1 Oct. 18: Stockton 4, Bakersfield 3 Oct. 19: Stockton 4, Bakersfield 2 The season opened with a loss on the road, with Bakersfield getting four points from Quinnipiac’s former star twins, Connor and […] [Read More]

Comeback wins: Springfield postgame

Coming back from injury Saturday, going back-to-back, Aaron Ness took some good whacks early in Sunday’s game. There was a hard, lateish hit behind the Bridgeport net from Josh Anderson. There was a slash from Brian Gibbons. They both left him looking uncomfortable. “It was a tough game. A lot of things going on there,” […] [Read More]

Third day, more changes: Springfield pregame

Three-in-threes may be slightly mitigated when you’ve got bunches of extra bodies. Bridgeport will utilize most of them against Springfield. Along with them comes a swap of right wingers. Homecoming for Jaime Sifers, the former Fairfield Prep defenseman from Stratford. Both teams have one to scratch. Looked like Justin Courtnall for Bridgeport and former Sound […] [Read More]

Three in three, sport unspecified: Albany liveblog

Bridgeport’s first road game of the season is Albany’s home opener, a scheduled 5:05 start. Got a football game to worry about first, so may not be focused here in time. But you sure can be. (Please. Then catch me up.) Listen to Josh at AHL Live. Follow Paul, Pete and the Devils. See you […] [Read More]

6D evidently overrated: Albany Postgame

Fairly sure Griffin Reinhart played more tonight than in his last two NHL games combined. For the second time in three games, a defenseman was missing most of the night (see the pregame post for Aaron Ness’ update; tonight, Andrey Pedan gets the ever-popular interference major/game misconduct for a hit on Stefan Matteau). Then with […] [Read More]
