Sunday long weekend Albany liveblog

on
Bridgeport tries for a modern split of a three-in-three weekend today in Albany. Warmup soon at the Times Union Center sponsored by Hearst: We’ll be listening to Rob Adams today, filling in for Phil, at AHL Live, assuming one of our computers and NEW! Frontier internet can handle the strain of its being 2014. Follow […] [Read More]

Powering down: Albany postgame

on
Too many power-play goals against, sure, though they saw more bounces and breakdowns doing it to them there than anything. Some of those aspects from last night that we talked about, they showed up again Sunday. Six more power plays against, a night after eight? “Discipline’s going to be an issue moving forward,” Brent Thompson […] [Read More]

Amended roster for second day: Albany pregame

on
A few changes, most notably Jesse Graham in for the injured Griffin Reinhart (termed day-to-day last night; see below) and Brett Gallant for Colton Gillies. Some minor rearrangements off of those swaps. Mike Sislo is back for the Devils (who have, including him, four guys wearing letters in warmup; used to happen here all the […] [Read More]

Ruining averages: 6-for-6 Albany postgame

on
When Ben Thomson was penalized for roughing up Colin McDonald — who’d neatly rope-a-doped Darcy Zajac three minutes earlier, making Bridgeport 6-for-6, seriously, SIX-FOR-SIX, on the power play — and Kael Mouillierat stepped in to cut him off, I thought, well-played, kid. Even this thing up. Playing with fire here. Mouillierat didn’t get a penalty. […] [Read More]

Incumbents in: Albany pregame

on
The decision on defense, it appears for tonight, is to stand pat. Could change tomorrow, but not tonight. The lines look as they have the past couple of days, breaking up that second line for the first time since opening weekend. One to scratch each way. BRIDGEPORT F: Mouillierat (A)-Quine-McDonald Halmo (A)-Stretch-Zolnierczyk Gillies-Sundstrom-Courtnall Persson-Langkow-Vaughan D: […] [Read More]

Veteran rule: Albany liveblog

on
We let a little milestone slip in St. John’s last weekend. When Colin McDonald suited up at the same time as Colton Gillies on Sunday, it was the first time in a little over 10 months that Bridgeport had two honest-to-God AHL veterans in the lineup together. You may recall that the one and only […] [Read More]

Three in three, sport unspecified: Albany liveblog

on
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

on
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

on
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

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]
