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]

One last time: Manchester (2) pregame

Bridgeport and Manchester play their last game today. And it’s been all Manchester lately: The Monarchs have won the last seven, with Bridgeport taking only one point in overtime in those seven. Bridgeport’s top couple of lines, as we’re told anyway, revert roughly to what they were supposed to be yesterday, with Lukas Sutter in […] [Read More]

Full-tilt: Manchester (1) postgame

Well, that was fun. A little bit of everything, from big-time heavyweight bouts (got a kick out of Matt Carkner saying he hadn’t seen Josh Gratton in a while) to crazy near-comebacks (lots of postgame talk about how those bouts got things sparked, “got a little jam back in our step,” Aaron Ness said) to […] [Read More]

Adding Eberle, no suspension, etc: Wednesday notes

Bridgeport signed Tanner Eberle to a PTO. He’s played a handful of games with the Allen Americans (ECHL) after finishing up his year in the WHL. A distant cousin to Jordan Eberle, he’s evidently got some edge, and he also put up four points in those five games with Allen, who’s the highest-scoring team in […] [Read More]

Just in time: Worcester postgame

So they’ve figured out how to put teams away. Shame about that whole February thing. This is actually their first winning streak since that Chris Langkow goal in overtime to beat Hartford here on Feb. 7, their first regulation-time winning streak since Kevin Poulin shut down Portland up there in early January. They’d been OK […] [Read More]

Not today: Hershey pregame

Pretty sure Brett Gallant and the Sound Tigers were hoping he’d be ready for this one. After that fight with Michael Sdao last night, he won’t play today. What can you do? Well, you can put Dyson Stevenson in, for one thing. That appears to be the only switch for Bridgeport, aside from putting Kevin […] [Read More]
