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.

Presumably a further casualty of the numbers (see below), though interesting as one of the only two righty shots left (if you count Scooter Vaughan as […] [Read More]

They weren’t playing horribly in the first two periods anyway, but the third was a strong one in particular. […] [Read More]

Mayfield on the way

on
Another defenseman on the way: Scott Mayfield has left Denver after two years to sign with the New York Islanders. He’ll join Bridgeport for the rest of the year on an amateur tryout. Another big (6-4, 203) guy; a second-round pick in 2011 out of the USHL. And he’s a righty, even. Click here or […] [Read More]
