Waiting on Harry: Wednesday notes

After a workout yesterday, the Sound Tigers got back on the ice Wednesday without Harry Zolnierczyk. Brent Thompson doesn’t expect him to play this three-in-three weekend. Brett Gallant practiced with contact, though, and his conditioning is coming along. They’ll see how it goes over the next couple of days. Reportedly Ferris State goalie C.J. Motte […] [Read More]

No continuation, another loss: Worcester postgame

Biggest difference between this thing and Saturday’s win? “Overall urgency,” Brent Thompson said. “Each one-on-one battle. That was the difference. We didn’t win enough one-on-one battles. We lost D-side positioning.” The Sharks scored two quick goals in the second and didn’t have that lead particularly threatened. There were a few big drives on the power […] [Read More]

Gallant, Mayfield suspended: Video

The initial suspensions are out from last night’s fun in Hershey: (H/t: Ray) Brett Gallant gets today for his third game misconduct that counts (two times getting in two fights against Springfield early in the year), and Scott Mayfield is suspended indefinitely pending review for coming out of the penalty box. Liam O’Brien is also […] [Read More]

Returns to the Land of Chocolate: Hershey liveblog

On Bridgeport’s last trip to Hershey, it was without Ryan Pulock, when he got his call-up and warmup. It’ll make its second (and different-kind-of-last) trip, but with Pulock this time after he missed, basically, 20 games for an entirely different reason. We’re home, unfortunately (or with the weather, maybe the opposite), but we’ll be listening […] [Read More]

Returning to action: Providence pregame

The returns of John Persson, Brett Gallant and Harry Zolnierczyk rearrange things a bit from how they were last weekend (and all week), though not incredibly. One to scratch; looked like Justin Courtnall. Tommy Cross of Simsbury is a scratch for Providence, which has a slew of injuries, to go with Justin Florek’s illness, costing […] [Read More]

One day closer: Wednesday notes

Three goalies on the ice to start practice Wednesday at Harbor Yard: Kevin Poulin was on through the first half or so before he went off. Still no timetable, Brent Thompson said. “Nothing’s changed,” Thompson said. “It’s all reaction to how he responds. Each day that’s a good day, we’ll say well, ok, that’s one […] [Read More]

Waiting on a few things: Tuesday notes

And as the header says, may be updated… Still no Brett Gallant (upper body) on the ice; Brent Thompson said he’s going through various tests of exertion over the next few days, and as he’s cleared through those he’ll be closer to getting cleared for practice. Thompson said he’s not expecting Gallant to play this […] [Read More]

Gallant out, McDonald back: Super Sunday notes

Brett Gallant was the only unexpected absence today for Bridgeport. Upper body, day-to-day, Brent Thompson said, on a hit Gallant took in the third period last night. “He says he’s feeling OK,” Thompson said. “We’ll see how he progresses.” Thompson told a good one about how Gallant wound up on that power-play shift last night […] [Read More]

An end to comebacks: Portland postgame

“I mean, we’re resilient for sure,” Harry Zolnierczyk said. ““It’s our starts.” We’ll take the first period as a whole as a start tonight (because you start with Brett Gallant’s first professional power-play goal, that’s not a bad technical-start). Alex Bolduc’s goal at the front of the net. Evan Oberg’s power-play goal. You can start […] [Read More]

Change at the top

We let this pass kind of quietly after discussing it along the way, but Brett Gallant’s fight with Dylan McIlrath in Sunday’s game gave him the team record.
