What it’s all about: Hartford postgame

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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]

Waiting on Harry: Wednesday notes

on
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]
