Upper body, day-to-day (again): Thursday notes

Harry Zolnierczyk remained out Thursday, and Brent Thompson didn’t sound hopeful he’d be back for the weekend. He’s termed day-to-day (upper body). Brett Gallant has practiced the past couple of days, no-contact. Doubt he’s in this weekend, either. Leni DiCostanzo remained in one net (and killed it at Rebound). Unfortunately for all our hopes of […] [Read More]

Goalies and Pirates: Wednesday notes

Bridgeport practiced today without Griffin Reinhart, with his family after his grandfather passed away over the weekend, and Harry Zolnierczyk, who was expected to have an upper-body injury evaluated later today, Brent Thompson said. “(Zolnierczyk) played with it last game,” Thompson said. Things looked relatively similar otherwise except in goal, where Leni DiCostanzo filled in […] [Read More]

Captain better: Friday notes

Aaron Ness was back on the ice with a full cage this morning after taking a puck up there yesterday. Good to go? “Best defenseman on the ice,” Brent Thompson said. So there you are. The most interesting tweak that appears to have stuck: Johan Sundstrom, not only in one of the more offensive-minded spots […] [Read More]

Worcester (last trip in) semiliveblog

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]

For crying out loud: Hartford postgame

These games are just weird. Another tough night for David Leggio. (Turns into a tough-luck loss for Kent Simpson; welcome back to the AHL, kid.) A mere 16 power plays, eight goals on special teams, one empty-netter to tie a record in a similar kind of game — well, I guess it’d have to be. […] [Read More]

West Coast Flavor: Pacific Division done

The official press release on a plan, as Bob Murray said in the press conference, a decade in the making. The ECHL steps in in a few places tomorrow, but a major shift in the geographic balance. Edit, 4:30: Our ol’ friend from the Hershey beat Dave Sottile found the San Diego site. And here’s […] [Read More]

Green lights: Pulock, Thursday notes

Cory Conacher and Matt Lashoff were on the ice today with the Sound Tigers as they came back from break, prepared for a (break-wise) second half that’ll need a push to make the playoffs, which seemed so much a given at the start of the year. They may get a little help. May. Eventually. Brent […] [Read More]

Pacific arrives/Keenan secured: Wednesday notes

The next few days appear to be the days when the Pacific Division finally gets its formal announcement (tomorrow in San Jose with the five teams in attendance) and other pieces of the move become official. How some of those eastern markets reposition themselves, what it all ultimately means for other AHL markets (including Bridgeport, […] [Read More]

Ness 1-for-2: Sunday notes

Aaron gets stopped in the Breakaway Relay, but we know he'd totally win the Active Stick event if it ever happens… — The Sound Tigers (@TheSoundTigers) January 26, 2015 Aaron Ness false-started in his puck-control relay heat. No problem: He started on time the second time and beat Phil Varone of Rochester by a hair […] [Read More]

Deflation: Bring balls to “Pucks and Pigskins night” Saturday

Jumping smartly on the bandwagon, the Sound Tigers today announced a “DeflateGate” tie-in to go with Saturday’s already-planned football theme night: Donate your deflated football to the Cardinal Shehan Center, get $10 off a ticket Saturday. All donated footballs will be inflated by a member of Tire Shak and donated to the Cardinal Sheehan Center […] [Read More]
