Here and gone: Coupla Wednesday notes

on
The Islanders announced yesterday that Mike Halmo and Kevin Czuczman accepted their qualifying offers, so they’re under contract for next year. QOs were scheduled to expire Wednesday for Kevin Poulin and Brock Nelson, though conceivably they could’ve been extended (haven’t heard anything for sure). What’s that mean? Not much, directly. They’re still restricted free agents. […] [Read More]

Summertime, two months early: 2014-15 wrap

on
Both Brent Thompson and Dave Stickney had their dogs in the room today. Scooter Vaughan walked in, saw them both running around with Jack Gallant, and asked the only logical question: “Where are we right now?” Good question. After 76 games, it’s over, earlier than we ever could’ve imagined in November or even most of […] [Read More]

One last time: Manchester (2) pregame

on
Bridgeport and Manchester play their last game today. And it’s been all Manchester lately: The Monarchs have won the last seven, with Bridgeport taking only one point in overtime in those seven. Bridgeport’s top couple of lines, as we’re told anyway, revert roughly to what they were supposed to be yesterday, with Lukas Sutter in […] [Read More]

Poulin up

on
The AHL transactions set Twitter abuzz, apparently, with the news of Kevin Poulin’s recall: Arthur Staple says Jaro Halak stayed behind today. Poulin skated Monday morning in Bridgeport (a lighter series of small-ice contests; Wednesday will be more systems/structure) before, apparently, getting the call. Bridgeport doesn’t practice until Wednesday and doesn’t play until Friday in […] [Read More]

‘Outgoaltended': Lehigh Valley postgame

on
This has been the season where something somewhere is always going wrong, and tonight’s turn was pretty clearly Kevin Poulin’s. Some bad luck, perhaps — what looked like an Adam Comrie floater apparently ticked off Colton Gillies for the tying goal — but not his night, as Brent Thompson put about as bluntly as he’s […] [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]

Survive and advance: Hartford postgame

on
“It’s a way to get two points,” Scooter Vaughan said. “I wouldn’t recommend it.” Hartford had a heck of a second period, was all over Bridgeport, and then Jack MacLellan brings the puck in, takes his time, sets up Griffin Reinhart to set up C.J. Stretch for a shot, and then Harry Zolnierczyk gets dirty […] [Read More]

Poulin returns: Hartford pregame

on
Kevin Poulin returns for Bridgeport tonight after missing three games injured. Appears that’s the only change from last night, with David Leggio backing up for him. Hartford has one to scratch. BRIDGEPORT F: Langkow-Mouillierat (A)-McDonald (A) Courtnall-Quine-Conacher Zolnierczyk-MacLellan-Stretch Gillies-Sundstrom-Vaughan D: Ness (C)-Reinhart Pelech-Mayfield Lashoff-Graham G: Poulin Leggio HARTFORD F: C.Bourque (A)-Lindberg-Crabb Vaive-Hrivik-Kristo R.Bourque (A)-Mueller (A)-Haggerty […] [Read More]
