Albany from afar, one eye on Newark edition

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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]

Shots on net

on
It seems so simple. Traffic in front. Shots to the net. “You get to certain points like this, we had to simplify,” Scott Pellerin said. Three power-play goals and a break later, Bridgeport went into the break with — for the first time in five tries this year — a win over Albany. Zonked down […] [Read More]

Albany pregame: Persson back

on
Yet another upper-body injury as Riley Wetmore remains out after being hit in the head with a clearing attempt last night. With that, John Persson returns from his own upper-body injury. He’s missed 18 of the past 20. Mike Cornell returns from his suspension. Scooter Vaughan took the rushes with the forwards; on his off […] [Read More]

Thoughts on Ans… er, Albany

on
Bridgeport vs. Albany: 0-4. Bridgeport vs. the rest of the league: 9-8-1-3. Um, what? (That’s 7-9-5 in non-shootout, so it’s not exactly something to write home about, but still.) The loosest of thoughts on Friday’s game, as I got home late and caught some highlights bleary-eyed… –Mattias Tedenby appears conditioned. –Guys left open in front […] [Read More]
