Seven’s a trend: Providence postgame

on
Tough start. They spend most of the first period in their own end but do enough to get out of it down only… 1-1? “That’s obviously a huge goal,” Andrew Clark said, “for Marty (Joey Martin) to read the play and pick the pass off, make a nice shot. We came in after the first, […] [Read More]

Keenan to Stockton: Tuesday notes

on
Bridgeport has sent Mike Keenan back to Stockton after scratching him the past two games. Would get you more, but was a touch under the weather (no pun intended) this morning and didn’t make the trip. They’ve got Marc Cantin coming back from suspension, for one, and Joe Finley will be back at some point […] [Read More]
