Landry-Montreal’s

Knocked out

on
The AHL announced a two-game suspension to Jon Landry for what was called a charging major near the end of Friday’s game. Mike Keenan gets in for him, and Sean Backman wears an ‘A’ in his absence. The lines are as they finished last night. Anders Nilsson gets the call again. The Pirates have one […] [Read More]

Watkins named captain/DiPietro waived

on
Well, the news of the day shifted a bit after the morning skate when Arthur Staple reported that Rick DiPietro has been placed on waivers. Should he clear tomorrow, he’ll come down and Kevin Poulin will go up. There was no outward sign at the skate that this was coming; Poulin took as much of […] [Read More]

Landry to Aucoin

on
Sorry for the delay. Sec. 105, the warning about possible flying electronics is reiterated. Had a bunch of notebook leftovers from last night ready for today’s blog entry. Jon Landry, talking about picking up his physical game in his own end to compete at the NHL level… And not 12 hours later he was back […] [Read More]

Going up

on
Appears that Bridgeport loses Hamonic, Wishart, Landry, Ullstrom, Cizikas, McDonald. I don’t know if that’s it, if that’s it for now, or what. But that’s what it appears at the moment. More later. ….. To answer your first question: No Niederreiter, no Ness, no Donovan, to my knowledge at this point. To answer your second […] [Read More]

Penalties and Providence

on
They gave up three power-play goals in Hartford, but as Scott Pellerin said, it wasn’t really their worst PK night. Tonight was pretty good. Six Providence chances, on which Bridgeport outscored the Bruins 1-0 and was only outshot 6-3. “We’ve got a lot of energy,” Brandon DeFazio said. They used it to take away second […] [Read More]

Sunday running (Landry, Watkins sign; Haley, Reese gone)

on
Not sure when a signing announcement really becomes official today, after the Avalanche tweeted that they’d signed Matt Carkner, but now the world seems to agree that he’s going to be a New York Islander for the next three years. Maybe. Eventually. Probably. Edit: They’ve announced it now. Insert joke here. The Islanders signed Brad […] [Read More]

Game 2 pregame

on
Tony Romano and Jon Landry return to the lineup, with Kael Mouillierat and Mark Katic removed. It’s naturally Kevin Poulin in goal. The Whale have 2011 first-rounder J.T. Miller on for warmup, and from the rushes, looks like he’s in and Steve Moses is out. Edit: Appearances hold up. Otherwise, the same for the Whale. […] [Read More]

Changes tomorrow?

on
Jon Landry joined the main group for practice, which included some power-play work, and Tony Romano appeared more involved as well. Could they be getting in for Game 2? “Landry’s day-to-day; we’ll see how he feels tomorrow,” Brent Thompson said. On Romano: “We’re toying with the decision. I’m confident with all the guys, especially the […] [Read More]

Powerless

on
Norfolk’s a darned good team. Toss St. John’s into the mix wherever you’d like, but the Admirals and the Penguins are probably two of the best teams Bridgeport faces. Darned, darned good power play, too. Ranked second in the league for a reason. Great puck movement. Good work in front of the net. “Obviously our […] [Read More]

Things add up

on
It didn’t look like their night for a while. Chances weren’t going. Anton Khudobin was making saves. The Bruins built themselves a lead. It wasn’t big enough. No Cizikas, no Ullstrom, no great shakes for once from the goaltending: No biggie. Blair Riley takes a cross-check and takes offense. “He’s been great for us from […] [Read More]
