Thoughts to Ottawa/McDonald on waivers: Wednesday notes

on
Thoughts and prayers with the people of Ottawa. Jeez. The mundane organizational news broke not long after practice broke up here and possibly did on the Island as well: Colin McDonald has been placed on waivers, presumably to come here if he clears tomorrow at noon. Arthur Staple says the logical should follow: Anders Lee […] [Read More]

Taking aim at the A with ‘A’s: end of preseason notes

on
I asked Mike Halmo what the ‘A’ meant to him. He thought I said the aim, meaning for tomorrow, and said “The guys are excited. We’ve been cooped up a while. I think everybody’s ready to play for keeps. … It’s time to show what we can do.” Liked that, but I meant something different: […] [Read More]

Rearranged lineup: Wednesday practice

on
Missing today were Andrew Rowe and Tyler Shattock, let go from their tryouts, and Loic Leduc, sent to Stockton. All three got praise from Brent Thompson, who said Leduc may have been the most-improved player in camp. Just not a lot of room at this point: They’re at 15 forwards, eight defensemen and three goalies. […] [Read More]

Lee, Pulock to Bridgeport

on
The Islanders got to 23 this afternoon, and as long as they’re here, last cuts Anders Lee and Ryan Pulock could be big pieces for Bridgeport. Lee was one of the big guns on the first line. Pulock’s got a cannon. Both highly touted. Both could see time up top, obviously, as the last cuts. […] [Read More]

Ness, Lee qualify/schedule (one day)/Friday notes

on
Agent Neil Sheehy reports that Aaron Ness accepted his qualifying offer. He probably won’t be the team’s most-experienced AHLer again, but as of now he still stands to be the “veteran” defenseman. Sheehy also said Anders Lee accepted his qualifying offer, as Arthur Staple said Lee would. Meanwhile, all indications are an Oct. 11 home […] [Read More]

So they’ve won 12 of 14*

Halmo steps on ice, levels Kessel. Already a fan favorite. — Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) February 28, 2014 Not a bad start to the NHL career. A few big hits (four in all in 9:01), a few plays almost made, and Mike Halmo’s an NHLer. Anders Lee scored his second NHL goal on a third-period power […] [Read More]

Recalls in units: Top line goes up

on
In every game in which Ryan Strome has played for Bridgeport since Oct. 30, the top line has been Anders Lee-Strome-Mike Halmo. The New York Islanders have the option of deploying that line together on Thursday: They recalled the three of them tonight. It’s Halmo’s first call-up. It’s a group that has worked well together […] [Read More]

Net-front presence: Hartford postgame

on
So thanks to Anders Lee for giving me tonight’s lead last night. All those things Lee talked about last night? They did ‘em today. Good night, everybody. ….. Of course Hartford’s in about as bad a way as Bridgeport has been. But still. “Our team, the way we play, the way we have to play […] [Read More]

Defend by offending

on
“We got pucks in deep, but they were very efficient breaking the puck out,” Scott Pellerin said. “They were able to hit their low center a lot. We weren’t able to make the adjustment to keep the puck in their zone.” Well, that was easy. See you… …. (We haven’t done that in a while, […] [Read More]
