Gallant

Two more in: Monday notes

on
Drying out from a soggy night at Harbor Yard, though glad the Brakettes and Bluefish will give it another go on Sunday. Seemed like they were having fun. Decent crowd, too. CapGeek tonight reported that Brett Gallant and Matt Donovan have re-signed; the math suggests it’s their qualifying offers. That leaves Casey Cizikas and Calvin […] [Read More]

Springfield postgame: I mean, come on

on
Seriously. “We had a couple of mistakes on the penalty kill that cost us,” Scott Pellerin said. “It’s going to happen in a game. We had some other opportunities to finish, to get two points; 5.4 seconds away from getting a point? Come on.” No way: That’s what I said. He’s frustrated, and it’s hard […] [Read More]

Round 2: Late Thursday notes

on
Brett Gallant vs. George Parros tonight. Did a heck of a job. I feel like I could’ve written twice what I wrote on Gallant’s NHL debut (Friday’s paper, would you?). Space allowed what it allowed, so some stuff hit the floor, but one bit I had to share. Brett’s dad was awesome to chat with […] [Read More]

So Brett Gallant’s an NHLer

on
And as someone said afterward, you can never take that away. Talked to a few people for a story that will run later on in the week. But some kind of night: Couple of shot attempts, one on goal, three credited hits, 10 shifts for 6:02, one trip to the box on an attempted fight […] [Read More]

Gallant to The Show

on
Brett Gallant’s an NHLer. Fresh off yesterday’s record-setter, Gallant got the call from the Isles today. After 141 AHL games, the last 140 of them here, he could make his NHL debut tomorrow. Got to be one of the neater call-ups for this team, a guy who came up that first time, we figured, as […] [Read More]

Morals to the story: Hershey postgame

on
Granted, there are no moral victories at this level, but that may’ve been among the more inspirational 5-4 losses around here. Team ATO down 3-0 to the Hershey Bears. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than two against anyone but Adirondack since February. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than one against a team still alive in the playoff […] [Read More]

Killers: Adirondack postgame

on
Flow? No. The box at this instant says 14 power plays, but it ignores the Halmo rough in the second as well as the Sundstrom board in the third that made it a five-on-three. So it’s 16* power plays, 10 of them Adirondack’s. That meant lots of work for Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan (who […] [Read More]

Three in a row: Springfield postgame

on
“I think we’ve just found our game,” Kenny Reiter said. “How we played last night, we played the same way tonight.” “We’ve come together,” Chris Langkow said, “and we’re just helping each other out through the process, being positive and just keeping it simple. … It’s a big stepping stone for us.” It’s a big […] [Read More]

Without Gallant: Springfield pregame

on
Brett Gallant moved four behind Micheal Haley’s team record for career fighting majors last night (Haley 65, Eric Godard 63, Gallant now 61), but he won’t get any closer tonight, sitting out with an injury suffered last night. Will ask more about that postgame, but in the meantime that gets Justin Johnson back in for […] [Read More]

Ring the bell: Worcester pregame

on
Forgot to mention last night: Brett Gallant’s two fights give him 52 as a Sound Tiger. That passes Graham Belak for third on the team’s all-time list. Micheal Haley had 65; Eric Godard had 63. If not for that pesky three-fights-yer-out game misconduct, you’d joke, he might make a run at the leaders tonight. Worcester’s […] [Read More]
