Missing Binghamton: Friday liveblog

on
Missed the news earlier? Kirill Kabanov plays for MoDo now. Now back to tonight’s regularly scheduled liveblog. Five years ago tonight, I missed a Bridgeport game in Binghamton for the first time. Fritz-Yablonski happened. One Leni DiCostanzo backed up. It was the 300th win in team history. Still haven’t been back. Miss that ol’ barn. […] [Read More]

Nothing special

on
At five-on-five: Bridgeport 4, Binghamton 1. Everywhere else? Binghamton 5, Bridgeport 1. Far from Anders Nilsson’s best day (he was pretty clearly screened on the first one; he said he didn’t get a clean look at the other two, either). Bridgeport battles itself back into the game twice, but coverages break down, a guy falls […] [Read More]

Even newer lines/Marty Biron

on
Brock Nelson’s arrival produces some interesting units, breaking up Anders Lee and Ryan Strome for the first time in a long time, putting Nelson on the wing with Strome and some other rearrangements throughout the top three lines. Alan Quine gets scratched for Nelson. A new letter for Johan Sundstrom in Chris Bruton’s injury absence. […] [Read More]

Started and finished

on
Brandon DeFazio, Scott Campbell and Blair Riley individually did several things to make this a win. Together they established what this game would be about for Bridgeport: a physical effort, a night spent deep in the Binghamton zone, which is pretty much where they spent most of the first period. “We just try to feed […] [Read More]

Sense of the dramatic?

on
No Nathan Lawson. Man. Lawson, 3-0 as a starter since the lockout ended, backs up Marc Cheverie (first Binghamton start) in the Senators’ only visit. But there’s Darien (Hugh Jessiman) and New Canaan (Jack Downing) and UConn (Cole Schneider) represented in front of Cheverie. For Bridgeport, Matt Watkins returns, John Persson’s in, and Marc Cantin […] [Read More]

Sittin’ home all alone: Binghamton Liveblog

on
I’ve told you I miss Binghamton. (I don’t think I mention in there that one reason is that it reminds me of “home,” the one I talked about earlier this week, at George and Orange.) Anyway, tonight I’m even more ticked off. For crying out loud, a legend, in from Wisconsin or wherever he was […] [Read More]

Binghamton liveblog with afternoon bits

on
We’ll hang out here while listening to Grady Whittenburg tonight. Follow Jamie and Joy Lindsay (plus her in-game account) for in-house updates. Bridgeport announced this afternoon that it has signed Northern Michigan forward Tyler Gron (hockeydb) (NMU) to an amateur tryout. Looks from the tweet as if 1997 Calder Cup champion Pascal Trepanier is calling […] [Read More]

Tough times

on
A month and a half after he took that spill into the boards, when he was hoped to be day-to-day, the day has apparently finally come for Trevor Gillies to return. Looks as if he’s in for Tomas Marcinko. Both teams have one to scratch. Bridgeport’s looks like Steve Oleksy, with Benn Olson in for […] [Read More]

Liveblogging Binghamton

on
Dear Twitterverse: When you write that Joe Buck “sounds” bad calling the “Tigers” game, you flood my searches. Pls rephrase. Thx Follow Joy Lindsay for news from up there, and also read the blog. And then Jamie and Phil are there, too. Phil’s play-by-play will be at AHL Live. I imagine you can get Grady […] [Read More]
