Flames in Adirondack: Friday notes

on
Glens Falls is now home to the Adirondack Flames, complete with something resembling the old Atlanta Flames logo. Clear victory. The buzz out of that press conference was that the Flames will wind up in the Western Conference with Utica et al. They made official as well that former Portland boss Brian Petrovek will run […] [Read More]

Adirondack comeback: Monday notes

on
It may be a port in a storm before the Western Migration, but Calgary is in fact bringing the kids to Glens Falls in the fall. The Flames replace the Phantoms. More details (including nickname and conference alignment, which could blow some stuff up if they want to stay with some of the other Canadian […] [Read More]

Two to go: Adirondack liveblog

on
Last call, before we get to tonight: Fake Team Awards voting remains open until 11 tonight. Both awards can still be determined. The Phantoms wrap up their time in Glens Falls tonight, though there’s a lot to be determined about whether there’ll be someone replacing them next year (a lot to be determined everywhere, as […] [Read More]

Execution: Adirondack postgame

on
For the first time in a while, Scott Pellerin sounded disappointed. Still outmanned, still outgunned, but lamenting a few things that could’ve made a difference. “When you get to certain moments in a game,” Pellerin said, “when you have a four-minute power play, a scoring chance in the slot, and miss. You have opportunities to […] [Read More]

Welcome to Pulock: Adirondack pregame

on
Obviously the whole “Foam” thing was a ruse to get Ryan Pulock a home game. A sop for the fans who suffered all year. (Or something.) Pulock arrived in time for this morning’s team picture and will make his pro debut tonight against Adirondack. The AHL return of John Persson follows a flurry-of-transactions day. If […] [Read More]

Ppd. (foam): Saturday POSTPONED

on
They had the World’s Largest Foam Party here last night, whatever the heck that is*. It was not advised. Foam leaked through the fibreboard, melted the ice and forced the postponement of Saturday’s game to Monday night at 7. Arena staff found the damage when they pulled the boards up, and Cliff Lydiksen and the […] [Read More]

Second game of the roadie at Adirondack tonight. We’ll be listening to Bob Rotruck (A href=”http://tunein.com/radio/Q1017-s28560/”>audio/video) and following Corey, Diana, Bob and the Phantoms on Twitter. With Michael Grabner back and emergency conditions terminated, the Islanders sent Johan Sundstrom down this afternoon. Wouldn’t imagine he gets to Glens Falls, but we’ll see, as well as […] [Read More]

Offensive outburst instead: Adirondack postgame

on
Yeah, they needed that. “It’s little things,” Jeremy Langlois said after his first three points in the AHL. “I think we played hard again tonight. … We were cycling well. We kept it in their end.” They got back in the penalty box again, repeatedly, constantly in the second, and it cost them three goals. […] [Read More]

Offensive offense: context, Adirondack pregame

on
If no one comes back down and Alan Quine (6-16-24) doesn’t go all Mark Arcobello in the last 15 games, Ryan Strome will lead the Sound Tigers in scoring. (Part of that is that pretty much everyone else in hailing distance left with him, but anyway.) Strome left with 13-36-49. By the goals tiebreaker, that […] [Read More]

Killers: Adirondack postgame

on
Flow? No. The box at this instant says 14 power plays, but it ignores the Halmo rough in the second as well as the Sundstrom board in the third that made it a five-on-three. So it’s 16* power plays, 10 of them Adirondack’s. That meant lots of work for Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan (who […] [Read More]
