Execution: Adirondack postgame

on
For the first time in a while, Scott Pellerin sounded disappointed. Still outmanned, still outgunned, but lamenting a few things that could’ve made a difference. “When you get to certain moments in a game,” Pellerin said, “when you have a four-minute power play, a scoring chance in the slot, and miss. You have opportunities to […] [Read More]

Union wins it all

on
Bridgeport: Birthplace of champions or something. The Union Dutchmen are national champions after Saturday’s 7-4 win over Minnesota in Philadelphia. Darien’s Kevin Sullivan had a late insurance goal and an assist; New Canaan’s Alex Gonye and Fairfield’s Griffyn Martin are also on the roster. The Dutchmen played three regionals here in the past four years […] [Read More]

Teen Beat: WBS liveblog

I’ve now missed four Sound Tigers trips to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 13 years. Two were because of blizzards. One was because the car and I kind of got knocked around that one time (pardon me, upper-body, day-to-day, for the past 2,900 days). And tonight. What can you do. What we’ll do is listen to Mike O’Brien […] [Read More]

Even newer: Thursday notes

on
So the roster rotation remains on full spin. Missing today: Brock Montpetit, who’s going back to school, and Marc Cantin, going down to Stockton. Cantin had played just six of the past 15 games after his second suspension, and the arrival of Kyle Burroughs gives them another body on the blue line. By the way, […] [Read More]

Novelty: Hartford postgame

on
Today’s Bridgeport lineup, by where they were on Feb. 1: F: UNO-Bakersfield-Evansville Stockton-Yale-Injured Adirondack-Bridgeport-Bridgeport Bridgeport-Bridgeport-Bridgeport D: Injured-RPI Bridgeport-Bridgeport Injured-Ontario G: Islanders Bridgeport Wouldn’t have thought of this if not for what I’d watched the past two days, but I think I saw a couple of Bridgeport’s college guys avoid playing a defensive-zone hand pass in […] [Read More]

Hockey in New Haven: Wednesday notes

on
While Yale and Fairfield’s staffs take over Webster Bank Arena this weekend, the Sound Tigers borrow Yale’s barn. Bridgeport will practice at Ingalls Rink the next three days. (We’ll probably miss out, over with the Fairfield and Yale folks.) No apparent changes to the roster today. Slackers. Tonight Roy Sommer coached his 1,257th AHL game, […] [Read More]

Turning points: Portland from afar/after the fact

on
So this thing this afternoon appears to have turned sharply in the last minute of the second period. Bridgeport led 2-1 when the Sound Tigers, breaking up the left wing, had Matt Mangene take a hit from Joel Hanley. Phil called it an elbow. Terry Koharski did not. The teams scrummed. Mangene got up and […] [Read More]

Quinnipiac, local angles in East Regional

on
We got us a bracket for Friday in Bridgeport in the NCAA East Regional. And of course it involves Union. But it’ll also involve last year’s runner-up. Union and Quinnipiac are the top two teams in the bracket, third and sixth seeds. Providence joins them, and so does Vermont, bringing in the local boy. Union-UVM […] [Read More]

Replay, scoreboard

on
There’s one crazy moment in the middle — darn, almost right in the middle — of regulation to talk about, but the other crazy moments are mostly saves. Tyler Beskorowany made a ton of them. Shake your head at a few of them. Chris Langkow passing up a shot in the slot, feeding Scooter Vaughan […] [Read More]

Frequent changes: Tuesday notes

on
So, the new-look Sound Tigers, three in and three out, skated at Wonderland this morning. Newbies Jesse Root, Yale’s captain (amateur tryout), and Adam Brace were alongside John Persson. Riley Wetmore was with Brett Gallant and Chris Bruton, who remained non-contact. Andrey Pedan went non-contact but left early, not feeling well, Scott Pellerin said. Matthew […] [Read More]
