Change to come/Vazzano honored: Tuesday notes

on
Arthur Staple’s expecting a callup at forward after the Islanders placed both Kyle Okposo and Eric Boulton on injured reserve before Tuesday’s big home win over the Rangers. Mike Richards, 2005 Calder Cup champion, is now a Manchester Monarch. Congrats to Andrew MacDonald and Hali Sampson, newlyweds. Trumbull’s Alex Vazzano was Atlantic Hockey goalie of […] [Read More]

U-ti-ca: All-star notes/Lamoureux let go/notes

on
It became the highest-scoring all-star game in AHL history, a 14-12 win for the Western Conference, though remarkably it was 1-1 at 13:45 of the first. Aaron Ness was plus-2 twice; that evaporated in the West’s four-goal third period. He assisted on the first of Shane Prince’s three goals in the last 25 minutes. Only […] [Read More]

Non-home part of home-and-home: Portland (road) pregame

on
Just got my electric bill. Can I borrow a defibrillator? Bridgeport starts a home-and-home in Portland tonight. After Wednesday’s bleh performance and the expected return of a couple of regulars, I’m not really sure what the lineup will look like. I mean, I could make a reasonable guess, I think, but the fine details, we’ll […] [Read More]

Some nights: Albany postgame

on
“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]

Pulock rehabs; we’ll see past that: Thursday notes

on
This is, Brent Thompson said, the good news, that the initial fear was worse: Ryan Pulock is going to rest and rehab for three weeks, then be reevaluated. “We don’t know if it’s going to be 3-6 weeks, or if it’s going to be longer,” Thompson said. Surgery sounds like a possibility if it doesn’t […] [Read More]

Waiting: Wednesday notes

on
Brent Thompson said Ryan Pulock was to be evaluated on Long Island; nothing yet on extent or prognosis until after results come back from that. Meanwhile, same cast as yesterday, with Scooter Vaughan going on defense to fill out four pairs and similar combinations to the weekend. In a cruel coincidence, I had a UConn […] [Read More]

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

on
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]

Pulock out: Providence postgame

on
On video, Ryan Pulock takes a couple of innocuous-looking bumps on the first shift tonight. One comes from Tyler Randell as he’s moving the puck, with his arms extended; maybe it’s to the arm, maybe even to the stick. If I’m guessing, based on how he looked from a distance, arms steady to his side, […] [Read More]

Persson in, Gillies out, two down: Monday notes

on
Haven’t had a chance to give a look to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton game yet. If I had, I might’ve noticed that Colton Gillies didn’t finish it. Gillies sat out of practice today, at the doctor to evaluate an upper-body injury, Brent Thompson said. Thompson termed him day-to-day. John Persson, on the other hand, appears at least […] [Read More]

Taking advantage: WBS postgame

on
You play them as they come, traffic and weather and mechanics permitting, and sometimes you catch a team when they’re suffering. Goodness knows the shoe has been on the other foot before. A solid, effective game, from all accounts — listened to a bit when possible, but don’t know much at the moment beyond tweets […] [Read More]
