Some nights: Albany postgame

“Some days, we come out flying, playing great,” Adam Pelech said. “Some nights are like that.” Like that. Flat. Uncharacteristic. The inconsistency is to be expected, but sometimes the way they’re inconsistent still surprises you. They were giving up odd-man rushes galore in the first period Wednesday. Albany scored on one of them, and Bridgeport […] [Read More]

Somewhere not in the swamps of Jersey: Albany pregame

Just up the road 11 years ago tomorrow, Bridgeport played Albany in the Meadowlands at Continental Airlines Arena, later the Izod Center, soon to be closed. Mattias Timander had just been traded. Bridgeport lost 2-1 that Thursday night. At a newer building in a downtown setting, the Sound Tigers will meet a team that isn’t […] [Read More]

The four-on-fours will be with you: Albany postgame 2

So they start out with two really good shifts, a couple of really good scoring chances, and boom, Joe Whitney flies the zone, Paul Thompson finds him, breakaway, bam, it’s 1-0 Devils, and for crying out loud, is there any “here we go again” going on on the Bridgeport bench? “I don’t think so,” Scott […] [Read More]

But he didn’t take the line rushes, so it looks as if he’ll sit, Scooter Vaughan will move back to defense in that spot with Aaron Ness. Justin Courtnall and Brett Gallant get into the lineup, with […] [Read More]

Where do you go, Game 33 edition: Albany postgame 1

Was mumbling to myself going downstairs after this one. With a roster like this, even with some of the youth, this wasn’t what we expected at this point of the season, especially after they won 10 of 14 to start. They’ve won five of 19 since, 13 points of 38, to sit in 12th place […] [Read More]

Waiting on a sloppy day: Albany pregame 1

Hopefully the weather holds up OK for everyone. In here, appears to be the same group for Bridgeport except in goal (David Leggio, Start 12) and that one spot on defense, where Ryan Pulock sits out and is expected to be evaluated tonight. Hope to know something more after the game about his prognosis. We’ll […] [Read More]
