More boring than usual

Spam and spy cameras

on
Edit: Joe Finley has signed with Hamilton, the Bulldogs announced. New spam filter catches comments (sorry, Raul, only five days later) but lets through spam “from” that TV “doctor,” or pitching wristwatches, or… technology, baby. As soon as you get it to work the way you want it, someone will “upgrade” you. Anyway, since the […] [Read More]

Penguins come back (2x): Saturday notes

on
The story Friday in Wilkes-Barre was whether Chuck Kobasew, out since St. John’s Game 1, or Andrew Ebbett, out since the Binghamton series. could return for Saturday’s Game 5. Four points later, yes, yes they can. Game 6 is Tuesday in St. John’s after the Penguins tied it with 7:30 left, won it with under […] [Read More]

Squared away: Saturday notes

on
Notes from the stats update: Scooter Vaughan scored three short-handed goals, which led AHL rookies (as well as, um, defensemen, though that’s obviously bookkeeping; he was playing forward). Appears he’s the first Bridgeport rookie to score three short-handed goals. (Frans Nielsen did it in 2006-07, but he had too much European experience to be considered […] [Read More]

Teen Beat: WBS liveblog

on
I’ve now missed four Sound Tigers trips to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 13 years. Two were because of blizzards. One was because the car and I kind of got knocked around that one time (pardon me, upper-body, day-to-day, for the past 2,900 days). And tonight. What can you do. What we’ll do is listen to Mike O’Brien […] [Read More]

Responsive designs or somesuch

You may have noticed changes to the blog. I haven’t had a chance to play around with what is supposed to be happening, but it looks halfway OK to start. Let me know if anything isn’t working for you, either in a comment or by email. Thanks. [Read More]

Wednesday’s 12, 6 and 2 (plus) (Updated: Martinek)

on
Bridgeport was almost down to a game roster Wednesday as Joe Finley remained out. “He’s seeing the doctor again,” Scott Pellerin said. “It’s something minor that we have to make sure he’s 100 percent before he can get back on the ice.” That left six defensemen to go with the 12 forwards, though Brett Gallant, […] [Read More]

Back in town / social media programming notes

on
Two days at Wonderland begin with one good skate and a chance to try to pick out numbers from helmets (and match a face to a name once in a while): 39 Diamond-28 Sundstrom-23 Persson 9 Lee-18 Strome-16 Bruton 26 Halmo-19 Wetmore-77 Kabanov 17 Miller-22 Quine-72 Clark 44 Gallant/24 Wiles/49 Johnson/58 Irwin The odd-number-of-defensemen circumstance […] [Read More]

Schedules, obligations, Backmans, etc.

on
Schedule. Thursday. 3 p.m. Inquiry to the City brought this, and this alone at the moment, from Elaine Ficarra, spokeman for Mayor Bill Finch: “We fully expect the Islanders to honor their obligations to the City.” Sean Backman, speaking of Sound Tigers leaving town (OK, I’ll stop), has signed with Manchester after two years here. […] [Read More]

Grand Rapids wins the Cup

on
Brennan Evans scored through traffic with 10:06 to go, Tomas Tatar and Joakim Andersson added empty-netters, and the Grand Rapids Griffins finally buried Syracuse in six games and won the Calder Cup. The Griffins fell behind in the first, scored two in the second, got tied up, and finally got that goal. It’s the Griffins’ […] [Read More]

Monday, idle here

on
Gotta love heading to the rink on a Monday morning knowing its playoff time. Other teams are not so lucky… #WBSPens — Chad Kolarik (@CKolarik) April 22, 2013 That’s, um, former Connecticut Whale forward Chad Kolarik. And I don’t know about you, but I could feel that one from here. So you’ve noticed some changes […] [Read More]
