Killed, revived, killed: Hershey postgame

on
The penalty kill had come around the past five games. Less so today, giving up two on a boarding major (5-foot-11, 186-pound Sebastian Collberg) and one on a five-on-three. Ballgame. Sort of. Bridgeport fought its way back, one of its most dominant games at even strength in a while, helped by the defense getting involved […] [Read More]

Halmo, Mouillierat, Mayfield back

on
Two-thirds of a top line — or, a third of their top six — returns tonight for the Sound Tigers. Mike Halmo’s back from injury; Kael Mouillierat’s back from the NHL. Lengthens the lineup just a tiny bit, no? Scott Mayfield comes back from his six-game suspension, too. The Sharks have one to scratch. First […] [Read More]

Six games for Mayfield

on
Scott Mayfield gets six games from the AHL for leaving the penalty box Saturday in that brawl at Hershey. He’ll be eligible to return March 11 at home. It ties for the second-longest suspension ever given a Sound Tiger behind Kip Brennan’s 15. Liam O’Brien got three games for leaving the bench in the same […] [Read More]

Status quo until the release comes: Monday notes

on
Same cast of characters on the ice today, including Sebastian Collberg on his 21st birthday*. It may not be the same for long, because they may need a replacement: Official word should come down today on Scott Mayfield’s suspension for leaving the penalty box. Will be writing more about it for the paper. They will […] [Read More]

Gallant, Mayfield suspended: Video

on
The initial suspensions are out from last night’s fun in Hershey: (H/t: Ray) Brett Gallant gets today for his third game misconduct that counts (two times getting in two fights against Springfield early in the year), and Scott Mayfield is suspended indefinitely pending review for coming out of the penalty box. Liam O’Brien is also […] [Read More]

Returns to the Land of Chocolate: Hershey liveblog

on
On Bridgeport’s last trip to Hershey, it was without Ryan Pulock, when he got his call-up and warmup. It’ll make its second (and different-kind-of-last) trip, but with Pulock this time after he missed, basically, 20 games for an entirely different reason. We’re home, unfortunately (or with the weather, maybe the opposite), but we’ll be listening […] [Read More]

Sharper edge: Syracuse postgame 2

on
A little different. “That’s a good team,” Scott Mayfield said. “They gave us some pushes, and we pushed them right back. (Saturday) night, that wasn’t there as much.” The defense had a rough night Saturday. Sunday, it was a strength. The kids have had moments recently where they’ve shown lots of growth, and today was […] [Read More]

It happens: Lehigh Valley postgame

on
Things happen, like injuries (John Persson is “week to week,” though nothing major, is how Brent Thompson termed it), curious unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties, accidental backhanders short-side. For the most part, Bridgeport’s response all weekend to those was pretty good. “Our response was excellent tonight,” Thompson said. “We didn’t hang our heads. We played hard.” It got […] [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]

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]
