When hockey’s even cooler: Tuesday notes

on
The wind across an outwash plain feels a heck of a lot better on a 95-degree June 8 than it must six months earlier or later. That’s all I can imagine. Hung out at a hockey rink, caught up with some people, including one we hadn’t seen in nine years. Watched the players skate for […] [Read More]

Tied in SJ: Sunday notes

on
An assist for Blair Riley as St. John’s evens the series going to Wilkes-Barre for three. Michael Hutchinson made 34 saves in a 2-1 win. Peter Mannino made 27 saves. Gold for Russia over Finland; bronze for Anders Nilsson and Sweden in a 29-save shutout over the Czechs. Name, Country GP G A Pts PIM […] [Read More]

Trailing’s for suckers: Friday notes

on
The @TorontoMarlies (8-0) have played more than 483 minutes of hockey this postseason and still have not trailed in a game #CalderCup — AHL Communications (@AHLPR) May 24, 2014 Jeez. Trevor Smith had an assist on the first goal, 191 seconds into the game. Game 2 is Monday. Joel Broda scored again as Bakersfield took […] [Read More]

Hospitality: Friday playoff wrapup (updated)

on
There were games in every series but Texas-OKC on Friday night. And a few went to overtime, on the 10th anniversary of the last Game 7 played in Bridgeport, the last time the Sound Tigers had a playoff series end at home. And among those games: One involving the team that won that game 10 […] [Read More]

Ppd. (foam): Saturday POSTPONED

on
They had the World’s Largest Foam Party here last night, whatever the heck that is*. It was not advised. Foam leaked through the fibreboard, melted the ice and forced the postponement of Saturday’s game to Monday night at 7. Arena staff found the damage when they pulled the boards up, and Cliff Lydiksen and the […] [Read More]

First ATO: Tuesday notes

on
The first Bridgeport ATO — the first skater in the league this year, it appears — is Dmitry Antipin, listed as a left winger out of UMass Dartmouth. (He’s “Dimitry” in some places.) Joined a group that was otherwise the way we’d left it (except for the Halmo and Donovan recalls) at Wonderland six days […] [Read More]

Amateur stuff: Sunday notes

on
As college seasons begin to finish, ATO season begins. The Isles don’t have any college-senior draft picks, but they haven’t been shy the past few years about bringing in others. The draft picks in juniors are all in the playoffs except, at the moment, for Ryan Pulock. Brandon’s in a three-team dogfight for two spots […] [Read More]

Milner shutout, Finland golden: Off-day notes

on
Oh, right: Trivia answers. Been lax on keeping up with Stockton — seriously, I had plans — but Saturday night was a nice one for the Thunder at the Cow Palace, with Parker Milner’s first pro shutout and a good night for Greg Miller. Former Sound Tigers centerman Mark Lee apparently played that game, then […] [Read More]

Snowballed: Springfield postgame

on
Went to the wrong spot first, apparently; missed Mike Keenan, whose take I wanted on Goals 2 and 3 of this one. With a 1-0 lead, Bridgeport proceeded to give up three in the second. One came on a Springfield clear that Keenan couldn’t keep in, which sent the Falcons on a rush; the shot […] [Read More]

Boxing Day, early edition

on
A short (but sweet) Christmas break. Back at it in the morning. Some links that may help in the meantime: The World Juniors begin Thursday. North Branford’s Adam Erne is a member of the United States team, and Yale assistant Dan Muse is video coordinator. Isles draft picks Adam Pelech and Griffin Reinhart are on […] [Read More]
