Free agency, Day 2: Many in, Gallant gone

Round 2. Today’s the day we expect the Islanders to actually start acknowledging the guys they’re bringing in for Bridgeport. Ren Lavoie reports another this morning: James Wright, former Admiral, Rampage, Lightning, Jet. He played last year in Zagreb, Croatia, with a bunch of former Sound Tigers at one point or another. Yesterday’s crew of […] [Read More]

Net-front presence: Hartford postgame

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]

Marcinko, Vasiljevs to Sochi: Tuesday notes

Edit: Bridgeport released Philip-Michael Devos this afternoon. He’d been in and out the past few games. Some neat local international news this morning: Tomas Marcinko is going to the Olympics with Slovakia. Original Beast of New Haven Herberts Vasiljevs returns with Latvia as well, his third trip (he was picked for a fourth but was […] [Read More]

That’s a killer

Have spilled a lot of words the last little while on the PK and what it has done. It was utterly brilliant in the first period, three chances killed with a short-handed goal of its own. Then the IceCaps kept the puck in deep for almost two minutes, kept three of the four penalty killers […] [Read More]


It’s Parker Milner’s AHL debut today, a day shy of 22 months since the St. John’s IceCaps played here last. And not one of the 20 Bridgeport players that night will play today for the Sound Tigers. But one will be on the other side. (Could be two, but Scott Howes drew back in that […] [Read More]

A day’s work

So they worked. They skated at the Wonderland of Ice. Awhile. Started on one sheet; went to the other. (That’s not that unusual here, but they gave both sheets a beating.) They do skating drills with coaches calling out “first period,” “second period,” “third period.” Naturally, today there was overtime. “They’re going to put in […] [Read More]

Milner up; Staple: Nilsson too

In the words of the great Sammy Adams "we goin..coast to coast" — Parker Milner (@milzy35) November 17, 2013 I thought that was Thomas Paine. Shoulda paid attention in history. The simplest immediate solution to the Evgeni Nabokov injury appears to have happened. Arthur Staple says Anders Nilsson gets the call tomorrow, reuniting the 2011-12 […] [Read More]

Sound Tigers sign five

The Sound Tigers just announced five signings, some we’d heard, but probably most notably Justin Johnson, late of Manchester. Johnson becomes the first of the likely Sound Tigers with over 200 pro games (293, in fact 317 — forgot playoffs), with 103 107 of those in the AHL for the Monarchs. Here’s a nice Dan […] [Read More]
