Keenan to Stockton: Tuesday notes

Bridgeport has sent Mike Keenan back to Stockton after scratching him the past two games. Would get you more, but was a touch under the weather (no pun intended) this morning and didn’t make the trip. They’ve got Marc Cantin coming back from suspension, for one, and Joe Finley will be back at some point […] [Read More]

Meetings of the minds

I could swear it wasn’t this close. I mean shots, first and foremost, but you could say the same about the game. The players met for, ballpark, 10 minutes after the game. The coaches’ doors were shut, too, awhile. There was no rah-rah waiting behind those closed doors. Pretty sure they get it. “We had […] [Read More]

Monday Frustration

Not a whole lot of happy floating around the Wonderland of Ice this morning. They skated on one rink, crossed the lobby, skated on the other, then skated at the end. Then skated a little more. They got some vociferous instruction at times. We’ll see what sticks Wednesday. Further tweaks to the lineup; Halmo where […] [Read More]

Bruton out, Larson coming

Chris Bruton is out for the week, and Nick Larson is coming up from Stockton. Scott Pellerin said Bruton has an upper-body injury that will keep him out through the weekend at least, so he’ll miss Sunday’s game against Binghamton. He’ll be reevaluated next week. (Pellerin said he hadn’t received a report on Brett Gallant […] [Read More]

AHL site: Two defensemen down

Nine defensemen is a lot, and it looks like Bridgeport got itself to seven: The AHL website’s transactions have Mike Dalhuisen and Mike Keenan going to Stockton. Neither had played in the first four games here. The Thunder start for real Saturday at home, and though they have an early-season gap or two in their […] [Read More]

Reiter, Keenan, Jackson re-sign

The Sound Tigers are expected to announce shortly that Kenny Reiter, Dallas Jackson and Mike Keenan have signed AHL contracts for next season. Familiar faces and added depth. …. Grand Rapids goes home with a chance to finish off the Western Conference Final tomorrow after winning Game 5 3-0 on Sunday. Petr Mrazek has stopped […] [Read More]

Bring in the closers

They got a little bit from everyone, getting the rookie goal-scoring record from one guy, getting their standout young defenseman a share of the league lead, getting another strong comeback game from their goalie. But a couple of the kids had big nights tonight, too, one on the scoresheet, the other more subtly. Well, subtle […] [Read More]

Debuts and returns

Appears that Nino Niederreiter returns, at least from the first rushes. Jordan Hill rushed with the defensemen. We’ll see who they scratch. Appears Mike Keenan makes his pro debut, though; he rushed first. Both teams have one to scratch. Edit: Hill’s in, Jason Clark’s out. Stepanov’s the last scratch for the Devils. Meanwhile, Fun With […] [Read More]
