Killed, revived, killed: Hershey postgame

on
The penalty kill had come around the past five games. Less so today, giving up two on a boarding major (5-foot-11, 186-pound Sebastian Collberg) and one on a five-on-three. Ballgame. Sort of. Bridgeport fought its way back, one of its most dominant games at even strength in a while, helped by the defense getting involved […] [Read More]

Syracuse liveblog, mathematically alive edition

on
It’s ’80s Night in Syracuse, so maybe they throw together a 7-6 game or something like that. We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). The box should be here (Garrett Rank/Tim Kotyra, Brian Oliver), and this should be Binghamton-WBS. Was asked on Twitter about the […] [Read More]

New guy in net: Thursday notes

on
Aside from the new goalie — C.J. Motte will get a start this weekend, Brent Thompson said, but he wasn’t committed to when — status quo for Bridgeport this morning. Brett Gallant’s status appears to depend on conditioning; seemed to be OK to go otherwise. Harry Zolnierczyk remains out; didn’t make the trip with them […] [Read More]

Waiting on Harry: Wednesday notes

on
After a workout yesterday, the Sound Tigers got back on the ice Wednesday without Harry Zolnierczyk. Brent Thompson doesn’t expect him to play this three-in-three weekend. Brett Gallant practiced with contact, though, and his conditioning is coming along. They’ll see how it goes over the next couple of days. Reportedly Ferris State goalie C.J. Motte […] [Read More]

College brackets, pro questions: Binghamton pregame

on
Only one little swap had been scheduled for Bridgeport: This is how they were originally supposed to go, but Kael Mouillierat went to the room early. Didn’t catch what was up there. Possible Chris Langkow stays him for him, but we’ll see how the lineup looks. Edit: Mouillierat’s in, so guess it wasn’t anything big. […] [Read More]

Not confusing effort with achievement: Sunday postgame

on
There is none of that in the Bridgeport room. If you want to take the positives from two games in which they outshot and outchanced their opponents (the power play figures are the smallest part of that), there’s that. But… Well, from the initial “couple of games of competing better” question, Thompson (with his team […] [Read More]

Syracuse pregame

on
No Sebastian Collberg today — healthy — so Scooter Vaughan gets back in. Several rearrangements, including Johan Sundstrom going back to the middle, but that looks like the only in-and-out change aside from the change in net, which Brent Thompson told us about last night. Syracuse ran all seven defensemen and I missed their first […] [Read More]

‘Outgoaltended’: Lehigh Valley postgame

on
This has been the season where something somewhere is always going wrong, and tonight’s turn was pretty clearly Kevin Poulin’s. Some bad luck, perhaps — what looked like an Adam Comrie floater apparently ticked off Colton Gillies for the tying goal — but not his night, as Brent Thompson put about as bluntly as he’s […] [Read More]

Places in history: Lehigh Valley pregame

on
Game 60 tonight. Time hurries along sometimes, and sometimes it drags (Matt Donovan plays tonight up top for the first time in two months, for instance #FreeDono). Seeing Donovan’s release from the cage while waiting for high schools this morning, I got to wondering about this: All-time Bridgeport defenseman scoring Name GP G A Pts […] [Read More]

More ins and outs: Tuesday notes

on
Bridgeport was still missing Brett Gallant this morning, but Ryan Pulock was back on the ice. Mike Halmo could be ready to go: “I think we’re going to try,” Brent Thompson said. “We’re excited to have that leadership back in the lineup. Obviously we’re going to give him some leeway.” That practice was over before […] [Read More]
