Signs of growth, etc: Hartford postgame

on
Yann Danis, 32 shots, 30 saves, a few big ones, bad breaks, you feel like you’ve seen this episode before. But it’s the little things, like the Minions playing a solid game, like Adam Pelech and Scott Mayfield and Mark Louis jumping in and getting some scoring chances and making you think maybe this is […] [Read More]

Adding Eberle, no suspension, etc: Wednesday notes

on
Bridgeport signed Tanner Eberle to a PTO. He’s played a handful of games with the Allen Americans (ECHL) after finishing up his year in the WHL. A distant cousin to Jordan Eberle, he’s evidently got some edge, and he also put up four points in those five games with Allen, who’s the highest-scoring team in […] [Read More]

Sunny day: Syracuse postgame

on
Stephon Williams stole the show — I mean, that diving glove save on Matthew Peca is gonna stand out a little — but Johan Sundstrom getting the winner, man… “Listen, he definitely deserved it, with all the chances he’s had all year,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s done a great job for us on the penalty […] [Read More]

Coming back, both sides edition: Springfield postgame

on
As the kids roll in (and maybe start rolling in in earnest), holdovers like Mike Halmo have their roles to play, getting the top-six minutes, and in particular in Halmo’s case, working his way back from missing much of the year. “I think I’m just finally getting back in game shape,” Halmo said. “A lot […] [Read More]

Not confusing effort with achievement: Sunday postgame

on
There is none of that in the Bridgeport room. If you want to take the positives from two games in which they outshot and outchanced their opponents (the power play figures are the smallest part of that), there’s that. But… Well, from the initial “couple of games of competing better” question, Thompson (with his team […] [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]

Sharper edge: Syracuse postgame 2

on
A little different. “That’s a good team,” Scott Mayfield said. “They gave us some pushes, and we pushed them right back. (Saturday) night, that wasn’t there as much.” The defense had a rough night Saturday. Sunday, it was a strength. The kids have had moments recently where they’ve shown lots of growth, and today was […] [Read More]
