Blasting away: Hartford postgame 2

on
Normally I write about something, and… well, it’s like the SI cover jinx. Sometimes it’s just regression to the mean. But last week I wrote Griffin Reinhart, and he got hurt. This week, I wrote Ryan Pulock to advance the weekend… and he’s got three goals in two games. It struck me even last night […] [Read More]

Knock it off: Springfield postgame

There was a game, and not a pretty game — well, take it back; not a pretty eight minutes or so — for Bridgeport. But in the years to come, unless the season just goes haywire from here, this is gonna be the day David Leggio dumped the net on a two-on-oh. And we have […] [Read More]

Well, that was a different kind of day. The IHDBs on the new guys the Islanders signed Tuesday: On two-ways: Jack Skille Harry Zolnierczyk David Leggio And one Kael Mouillierat. “It was definitely important to be back in a place I was familiar with and comfortable with,” Mouillierat said; knowing the coaching staff also helped.
