What it’s all about: Hartford postgame

If you remember back in the day, an unremarkable PTO signing, showing up in No. 13, so unremarkable at the time that I wondered from a distance at practice if that was the return of an unremarkable AHL-contract guy Brett Gallant was more or less called up to fight Tim Wallace. They needed him to […] [Read More]

One back, one set back: Wednesday notes

One change: Brett Gallant in for practice, Mike Halmo off. “(Halmo) wasn’t feeling as well today” after skating yesterday, Brent Thompson said. He’s not expecting Halmo to make the trip, or John Persson, either, though Persson skated again today with the team. Status quo otherwise; the rookie tryouts remained together, and that line (Eberle-Brooks-Markison) could […] [Read More]

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]
