Norfolk Liveblog 2 ’14

Following Twitter reports from Corey, Pete, the Ads’ official feed and their in-game updates account. The box will be here. Last night was Jason Rollins; tonight, it’s the first Bridgeport game for Steve Patafie, who […] [Read More]

Norfolk Liveblog 1 ’14

We’ll be following along with Pete Michaud (Audio / Video) this weekend. Following Twitter reports from Corey, Pete, the Ads’ official feed and their play-by-play account. The box will be here. First Bridgeport game for Jason Rollins. He’s also an ECHL supervisor; from googling, looks like he’s worked mostly (maybe exclusively) Norfolk and Charlotte home […] [Read More]

Unfamiliar territory: Norfolk pregame

Bridgeport’s last winning streak was seven months ago… OK, I know, the Sound Tigers didn’t play six of those months. But still. They’d played 15 games over two seasons without winning two in a row, since April 2 at Worcester and April 4 back here… against Worcester. So if they’re going to win two in […] [Read More]

Spills, chills, shootouts

A little bit of everything in Season 13, Game 2, from wacky short-handed goals to big late penalty kills to fights in defense of a teammate — and yourself. Joe Finley was in on a few of them, especially the PK and the fights. He took a hit from Zack Stortini in the first that […] [Read More]

A new day, two new guys

Greg Miller appears set to make his pro debut, and Alan Quine makes his debut on a pro contract (had an ATO with Grand Rapids), at the expense of Mike Halmo and Brett Gallant. Gallant had the maintenance day earlier in the week, so we’ll double-check postgame. One to scratch for Bridgeport, and it looked […] [Read More]

Fuzzy math

Norfolk arrived here without a lot of its offense. Pat Maroon, Peter Holland, Kyle Palmieri, all up in the Show. Did some back-of-the-envelope (OK, side of the game notes) math after one period, when it looked as if Bridgeport had some good things going offensively: The Admirals’ lineup had scored 56 AHL goals this season. […] [Read More]


Things have gone a little better lately against teams that aren’t named after bears. That includes a game 15 days ago against these Admirals, who have sent a few guys across to Anaheim lately. Still no Riley for the Sound Tigers. Both teams have one to scratch. Not positive these Norfolk pairs are correct, though, […] [Read More]

Second effort

“Obviously you have to have your good players producing to have success,” Scott Pellerin said, and four goals from his top line’s top players made for a successful night tonight, indeed. But it’s everyone else that made it that way. It’s the penalty kill, Backman and Watkins, Donovan blocking shots. It’s Halmo working his way […] [Read More]

Three in three

With Brett Gallant dealing with an undisclosed minor upper-body injury, the forwards stay the same. Looks like Dallas Jackson in for Marc Cantin. (Tweeted last night that they’d changed to Ness-McIver and Cantin-Landry after the first couple of shifts, but don’t think I mentioned that here. Scott Pellerin credited “Eric and Eric” — Boguniecki and […] [Read More]
