Comeback wins: Springfield postgame

on
Coming back from injury Saturday, going back-to-back, Aaron Ness took some good whacks early in Sunday’s game. There was a hard, lateish hit behind the Bridgeport net from Josh Anderson. There was a slash from Brian Gibbons. They both left him looking uncomfortable. “It was a tough game. A lot of things going on there,” […] [Read More]

Not happy to be here: Albany pregame

on
In everyone’s moments of clarity, we all know this isn’t where any player really wants to be. There’s a level above this. There’s the bright lights and glory and double-to-15-times (and up) the money waiting. It doesn’t make this level meaningless — every year someone snarks about the AHL Hall of Fame announcement, and every […] [Read More]

FOG

New and returning defensemen/weather reports: Thursday notes

on
Two days in a row the filthy humidity outside yields fog in the barn. Hopefully it’s gone tomorrow. (If not, still seen that before.) The organization’s defense corps got a little healthier with the return of Calvin de Haan from injured reserve, so the Islanders have sent top prospect Griffin Reinhart down this afternoon. There’s […] [Read More]

Ness and fog: Wednesday notes

on
Sounds like cautiously optimistic news on Aaron Ness. Though Brent Thompson said he was waiting on the results of Ness’ MRI, “as far as the day-to-day recovery, he seems to be getting stronger, moving a little bit,” Thompson said. The warm, muggy weather outside carried inside as well: The glass was misted over, the ice […] [Read More]

Sutter to Stockton, Collberg dirty, waiting on Ness

on
The Sound Tigers looked Tuesday much as they did Sunday except for one missing extra forward: Lukas Sutter is going to Stockton, Brent Thompson said. The usual story when a young guy is sitting out: Stockton begins its season Friday, and he’ll play there. “He’ll play in game situations, evolve his game from there,” Thompson […] [Read More]

First win: St. John’s Postgame 2

on
Since winning the very first meeting between the teams in St. John’s — Jeremy Colliton with the overtime goal on Oct. 21, 2011 — Bridgeport was winless in eight against the IceCaps going into Sunday. Since breaking their first long winless streak of the end of last year — a big day for the PTOs […] [Read More]

St. John’s Pregame 2

on
The captain will be re-evaluated, is the early word out of the Bridgeport dressing room, so the Sound Tigers go without Aaron Ness on defense. Andrey Pedan draws in for him, starting right in that spot with Ryan Pulock. Bridgeport’s line rushes appeared to include Brett Gallant and Alan Quine trading off. See which way […] [Read More]

Outshot, shot down: St. John’s postgame 1

on
Shots on goal don’t always reflect the flow of a game, the territory of a game, the possession in a game. But for two periods, these kinda did. Actually, so did the third’s, but we digress. Bridgeport led 2-0 though the IceCaps had an edge in shots and in chances, in part because of one […] [Read More]

Ness named captain

on
He was the closest thing Bridgeport had to a veteran most of last year. This year, Aaron Ness is going to wear the C. The team announced him as their 11th captain this afternoon. “I think he’s vocal in the room, well-liked by his teammates,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s a likeable guy. He’s respected. It’s […] [Read More]
