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]

Live From Broad Street: Adirondack pregame

on
Feb 22s are crazy. We’ll see. They had a Villanova game here this afternoon and got the last pallets off for the changeover at 6:33 p.m. Finished flooding about four minutes before warmup. It’s not exactly frigid out there. We’ll see how the ice does. But whatever. It’s Philly. A big crowd’s expected. The Phantoms […] [Read More]

Late-Breaking: Adirondack postgame

on
It’s kind of the story of the night: “We said let’s go and play in their end,” John Persson said. Backstory might be nice, I guess. There was a shift in the second period where Vaughan-Quine-Persson got pinned deep. Adirondack got some shots, kept it deep. Adirondack got a change, kept it deep. Adirondack forced […] [Read More]

One to the break: Adirondack pregame

on
They went at the same time, naturally, so I may be a bit off on the top of the Adirondack lineup. Think it’s close. Wetmore and, it appears, Clark come out; Diamond and Johnson go back in. One to scratch for each. Edit: Bourdon is Adirondack’s, which looks like a lateish change. BRIDGEPORT F: Lee-Strome-Halmo […] [Read More]
