Morals to the story: Hershey postgame

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

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

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

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

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

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]

Game of Inches: Almost April

The nice thing about wait it’s what time?* blogging after the drive home is you may remember bits you’d forgotten, like how Bridgeport kept dunno-how-many pucks in the zone in the first period but, something like dunno-how-many-minus-one times, they didn’t make Philipp Grubauer make a big save. Or even a save. They’ve picked up the […] [Read More]

75 years, 11 cups

Nice to make it to Hershey — first time since that seven-shot night — to see the Bears in their 75th season. Turns out it’s a matchup of two teams outside the top eight right now. But always neat to be here. “We haven’t been there that often, but I always like going to Hershey,” […] [Read More]

Just OK

An “OK game,” Scott Pellerin called it, in the “they’ve been better” sense. Not their best. Both teams had times when they took over the game. At the same time, Bridgeport had more times when it took over the game and really didn’t have a lot to show for it. The go-ahead goal in the […] [Read More]

As you were (for one day more)

Right now, no major changes for the Sound Tigers, and certainly none in deference to the lockout’s impending end. Same forwards as Saturday, one apparent swap on defense, and Poulin starts instead of Nilsson. Whether that changes by Friday and this is a last hurrah for this group, we’ll see. Both teams have one to […] [Read More]
