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]

Cleaning up: Providence postgame

on
One thing everyone around this team talks about is how hard the players work. Hasn’t been in doubt. The results haven’t followed. They’ve worked to clean things up the whole way here. A lot of them were cleaned up tonight. Goaltending wasn’t bad; Kevin Poulin got beat on a wrister 35 seconds after Andrew Cherniwchan […] [Read More]

Springfield liveblog

on
Dodging snowflakes (though that’s not the primary reason… really somewhere around quaternary), we’re liveblogging from the living room tonight while the Sound Tigers are in Springfield. We’ll be listening to Chuck Scott on AHL Live (audio/pay-per-view). This should be the box. (T.Koharski, Alarie/Colby, F.Murphy.) We’ll follow Paul among others. Prescout here, Providence against Manchester, whose […] [Read More]

Captain better: Friday notes

on
Aaron Ness was back on the ice with a full cage this morning after taking a puck up there yesterday. Good to go? “Best defenseman on the ice,” Brent Thompson said. So there you are. The most interesting tweak that appears to have stuck: Johan Sundstrom, not only in one of the more offensive-minded spots […] [Read More]

Lessons in context: Monday notes

on
Today is the AHL trade/reassignment deadline at 3 p.m. Brett Gallant and Ryan Pulock weren’t on the ice today. Those facts have nothing to do with each other; Gallant and Pulock are both sick, Brent Thompson reports. But those were the two things I most wanted to mention in this post, and accidentally putting them […] [Read More]

Worcester (last trip in) semiliveblog

on
Again otherwise occupied today, though hoping to catch up on tonight’s game relatively early. We’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, you’ve got Phil tonight (audio/pay per view). Follows include Paul, Phil, Eric Lindquist’s in-game (his call is here) and [Read More]

Won’t be getting up today: Lehigh Valley postgame

on
A point. Hey, better than it was. Still a 10th straight loss (team record), 10 in a row without a win (two shy of the team record), 17th straight without a regulation win (team record). Remarkable. Actually, with the Phantoms embarking on the fateful power play in the final seconds, Kevin Poulin got tied up […] [Read More]

That time of year: Stretch traded, Wednesday notes

on
C.J. Stretch, Brent Thompson said this morning, is a really nice player on a good team. When the Sound Tigers signed him, that’s what they were hoping to be. Oklahoma City’s leading the Western Conference; that’s what they are. They know Stretch well. And they wanted him, and today, the Sound Tigers sent him back […] [Read More]

Three in 2:22: Providence postgame

on
An OK first 40 turns into something that, as Aaron Ness said, “just can’t happen.” One goal cascaded quickly. The Bruins got traffic in front of Kevin Poulin and used it to their advantage. They took advantage of a broken little neutral-zone faceoff, broke in and scored on a two-on-one. And then soon enough, one […] [Read More]

Survive and advance: Hartford postgame

on
“It’s a way to get two points,” Scooter Vaughan said. “I wouldn’t recommend it.” Hartford had a heck of a second period, was all over Bridgeport, and then Jack MacLellan brings the puck in, takes his time, sets up Griffin Reinhart to set up C.J. Stretch for a shot, and then Harry Zolnierczyk gets dirty […] [Read More]
