Returns to the Land of Chocolate: Hershey liveblog

on
On Bridgeport’s last trip to Hershey, it was without Ryan Pulock, when he got his call-up and warmup. It’ll make its second (and different-kind-of-last) trip, but with Pulock this time after he missed, basically, 20 games for an entirely different reason. We’re home, unfortunately (or with the weather, maybe the opposite), but we’ll be listening […] [Read More]

Carrots and measuring sticks: Hershey postgame

on
That defensive-zone coverage… “terrible,” Brent Thompson said. Intensifiers optional. “The effort is there. Our effort is great, but we work stupid,” Thompson said. Stuff will happen; five-on-threes after weird or unfortunate penalties, two-on-ones moments after you nearly score yourself. And Hershey’s no slouch, with points in 13 consecutive games. But it seems every time Bridgeport […] [Read More]

Brutal bus rides: Hershey pregame

on
The Sound Tigers got back to town after midnight last night after a 3 p.m. game in Manchester. Hershey’s brutal ride after a 7 p.m. home game got the Bears here at almost 5 a.m. Three-in-three. Good luck, gentlemen. Last night’s three scratches get back in for Bridgeport, nine points back with 26 games to […] [Read More]

Without Pulock: Hershey liveblog

on
No roadie for us, but an extra one for Ryan Pulock, called up this afternoon to make seven defensemen with Travis Hamonic on injured reserve. We’ll hang out here and listen to a game with a suddenly thinned-out Bridgeport defense corps — these things change in a day, don’t they? good thing for versatility — […] [Read More]

Morals to the story: Hershey postgame

on
Granted, there are no moral victories at this level, but that may’ve been among the more inspirational 5-4 losses around here. Team ATO down 3-0 to the Hershey Bears. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than two against anyone but Adirondack since February. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than one against a team still alive in the playoff […] [Read More]

Who are these guys: Hershey pregame

on
Matt Watkins, one of the first guys out for warmup for Hershey, was the captain of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at the end of last season. He played with only three guys dressed for Bridgeport tonight. Steve Oleksy only played with three, too, but that’s only because of Chris Langkow, who obviously left and came […] [Read More]

Great American Liveblog: Hershey from afar

on
No Hershey trip for us this year. We’ll be listening to Scott Stuccio (audio / video). We’ll be following Tim Leone, Scott and of course Corey. The box will be here. Hartford has the night off. And while we’re on Hartford and box scores, that Petr Straka match penalty from last night changed again today, […] [Read More]

Double bonus

on
Six power plays? Six Hershey power plays in the first 14 minutes? The first four, all on a different defenseman? They were a Mike Cornell and a Mike Dalhuisen penalty away from completing the set. “It taxes the guys so much,” Scott Pellerin said. “I was looking after the second period, and (Matt) Donovan had […] [Read More]

Catching up with the Sound Tigers

on
The boys are back in down for the first time since Tuesday’s practice. Marc Cantin’s out after taking that shot in the ear last night; Mike Dalhuisen returns to the lineup, and Mike Cornell returns for Mike Banwell, who was released back to Reading this morning. Otherwise it looks kind of similar. One to scratch […] [Read More]

Hershey from afar: Liveblog

on
No trip to the Land of Chocolate for us tonight, so we’ll be listening to Scott Stuccio and following Tim Leone, Corey and Scott. Eventually, the box should be here. Scott Linesburgh reports the logical move from Stockton: Mike Dalhuisen is coming up. Prescout early: Adirondack started at 5 in Albany and is leading in […] [Read More]
