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]

Not happy to be here: Albany pregame

In everyone’s moments of clarity, we all know this isn’t where any player really wants to be. There’s a level above this. There’s the bright lights and glory and double-to-15-times (and up) the money waiting. It doesn’t make this level meaningless — every year someone snarks about the AHL Hall of Fame announcement, and every […] [Read More]

Albany from afar, one eye on Newark edition

Like a lot of folks I’m sure, will be following the Sound Tigers and Albany while keeping tabs as best as possible on the NHL debut of Justin Johnson, in which he joins a lineup made up largely of guys he knows. No Albany as usual for us, so we’ll be following along with Josh […] [Read More]

Full weekend: Albany postgame

The Devils had moments where they were coming pretty hard — “Albany always comes hard, finishes checks,” Matt Donovan said; “you’ve kind of got to match it” — but Anders Nilsson made sure they weren’t really in this. Bridgeport scored goals less than a minute apart twice and finished with 12 goals in two games […] [Read More]

No Moose: Albany pregame

Scott Wedgewood goes three-in-three. Aw. No Johan Hedberg. What can you do. Looks like Bridgeport goes with the same 20 that won convincingly last night. Albany’s just one defensive swap from a lineup that won last night. Assuming the scratches are as apparent, anyway. Edit: They are. BRIDGEPORT F: Lee-Strome-Halmo Diamond-Sundstrom (A)-Pistilli A.Clark-Quine-Persson Gallant (A)-Langkow-Vaughan […] [Read More]

No milestone: Albany postgame


Albany liveblog, last-day-of-January edition

These two teams have already met once in Albany on the last day of a month. It did not go well. No, I meant for either of them. (Only slightly less-worse for one.) No Albany as usual for us, so we’ll be following along on AHL Live. Follow Corey for the Bridgeport side, Pete Dougherty […] [Read More]

Cross-checking back: Albany postgame

This could’ve been another one of those nights, another game to turn on a curious penalty call and drift away into yet another 4-1 or 6-3 or 3-0 or whatever kind of game. It did not. They weren’t playing horribly in the first two periods anyway, but the third was a strong one in particular. […] [Read More]

Diamond back: Albany pregame

Joey Diamond makes his return after 15 games tonight; looks like Mike Keenan is scratched to make room, with Scooter Vaughan moving back to defense. The forward lines, with Diamond in Vaughan’s place, look more or less how they finished last night. Oh, and Albany’s in. Because Hartford isn’t, more or less. (Or it just […] [Read More]
