Road to the End: Thursday notes

on
This last week with an eliminated team felt different from other seasons’ last weeks, and I think I figured out why yesterday, dumb as it sounds. This is the first time Bridgeport will miss the playoffs while finishing the season on the road. The first five times, the season ended at home. But there’s a […] [Read More]

Links from away: St. John’s pregame 1

on
As noted, out of touch for tonight’s Sound Tigers game in St. John’s. It’s bad enough not actually being in St. John’s. Anyway. You’ve got AHL Live for video and possibly audio, depending on how things set up, but in past years we’ve also gotten a stream here, with the bonus of local music; not […] [Read More]

Refreshers: Thursday notes

on
Same cast today; same array, generally. Lots of systems work; some refreshers, some tweaks, it sounded like. Justin Johnson should be available. (By the way, that line — he was with Gallant-Langkow-Vaughan — usually has worn gray practice jerseys. The past two days? A purple we’ve never seen before. Makes you wonder what else Leni’s […] [Read More]

Two goals for Strome: Wednesday notes

on
There’d been four Sound Tigers to score more than a point at the AHL All-Star Game, but if I’ve not misrecorded, Ryan Strome tonight became the first to score two goals. (First one reminded me just a little of his goal Sunday against Adiondack. Turnover, capitalized, high glove. Just a different kind of pass, a […] [Read More]

Accurate: skills contest plus Tuesday notes

on
Ryan Strome hit two posts, then hit four targets in succession to set the bar with a 4-for-6 in the accuracy competition. Then Magnus Nygren and Jason Jaffray matched him. He still gets a share of the title, joining Trent Hunter (same event, 2003 at Portland) as Sound Tigers to win an individual event at […] [Read More]

No milestone: Albany postgame

PTO swap: Wednesday notes

on
Something else figured to be coming after Philip-Michael Devos was released last night. The “something else” turned out to be Peter Boyd, 25, a third-year pro up from South Carolina. He got his only AHL experience with Lake Erie on an ATO after finishing up at Ohio State in 2011. Why the swap? “We were […] [Read More]

Less ill: Monday notes

on
So 12-7-2 on the ice at Wonderland today. Pierre-Marc Bouchard got a maintenance day, Scott Pellerin said. John Persson remained out with that lower-body issue from Friday night. Riley Wetmore’s been riding the bike and is at least making progress; “hopefully he’s back sooner than later.” And Johan Sundstrom was on the ice before the […] [Read More]

Finley out: who else?

on
Joe Finley’s tour of specialists wound up with the tough diagnosis: He needed surgery on his left hand to correct a “blood-flow issue,” as Scott Pellerin put it; Finley has had similar issues in the past, which cost him the bulk of his 2009-10 season. “It’s very unlucky,” Pellerin said. The big defenseman is in […] [Read More]

Thursday practice: Putting it together

on
A pretty hard practice today; so hard that I thought for a moment Marc Cantin might be injured on a bump from behind from Joey Diamond. He got up looking sore but OK. “We have to be able to do all that we do in practice and execute it in a game,” Scott Pellerin said. […] [Read More]
