So they’ve won 12 of 14*

on
Halmo steps on ice, levels Kessel. Already a fan favorite. — Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) February 28, 2014 Not a bad start to the NHL career. A few big hits (four in all in 9:01), a few plays almost made, and Mike Halmo’s an NHLer. Anders Lee scored his second NHL goal on a third-period power […] [Read More]

Happy 1000: Albany pregame

on
Rich Stieglitz and family in the house. Must be a special occasion. The return of Matt Donovan from the NHL means that Scooter Vaughan can move back up front. Appears Chris Langkow can play; Justin Johnson looked to be the odd man tonight (and was, by one report at least, a bit under the weather […] [Read More]

Midweek practice update

on
Two of yesterday’s three missing men returned, Chris Langkow to the spot he manned Sunday, Scott Pellerin to his spot in charge. (Eric Boguniecki departed early after taking a puck to the head; hopefully feeling better.) But Chris Bruton remained out. Pellerin reiterated the “upper-body, day-to-day” we were told yesterday in his absence. Johan Sundstrom […] [Read More]

The General Category: Monday notes

on
We can chuckle about the roughing major, but it struck me too late last night that changing it to a cross-check does have a potential effect down the road. There are two classes of game misconducts; there are stick fouls, boarding and checking-from-behind, and then there’s everything else*. You get a game’s suspension if you […] [Read More]

Arms up

on
Stay out of the box. Score on the power play. Kill penalties. Simple recipe. Hard to do. Harder when you’re not sure what’s what. Things were kind of all over the place tonight, what was a call, what wasn’t, whether the puck went straight over the glass or off it first (Jack Skille, inside voices!). […] [Read More]

The mundane amid disaster: Monday notes

on
Horrific stuff out of Boston, where two apparent explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon have reportedly left numerous casualties. Hoping for the best. Bridgeport’s lines were all mixed up this morning at Wonderland, Home of Champions, with Joey Diamond and Matt Watkins both missing for different injuries; Scott Pellerin said Watkins was […] [Read More]

Unchanged

on
They remain as they were Thursday, which will surprise no one. They’re a couple of hours away from warmup for the national championship. One will win the first title for a Connecticut Division I hockey team, the first for an ECAC team since 1989; one will cap off a remarkable year with a championship. YALE […] [Read More]

All-star fun, Day 1

on
Sorry for the lack of contact; wireless was spotty earlier. As tweeted, nothing all that thrilling from the local perspective. Matt Donovan salvaged an OK first hardest-shot with a 98.1 on his second. Nino Niederreiter went 4-for-7 in the accuracy contest. The Rumored Conference trailed all night long until their last two shooters in the […] [Read More]

on

It had been set for Sunday. “After speaking with members of the Newtown community in recent weeks, we’ve been asked to honor those lost and their families later in the season,” Howard Saffan said in the team’s statement. “We want […] [Read More]
