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

One day closer: Wednesday notes

on
Three goalies on the ice to start practice Wednesday at Harbor Yard: Kevin Poulin was on through the first half or so before he went off. Still no timetable, Brent Thompson said. “Nothing’s changed,” Thompson said. “It’s all reaction to how he responds. Each day that’s a good day, we’ll say well, ok, that’s one […] [Read More]

For crying out loud: Hartford postgame

on
These games are just weird. Another tough night for David Leggio. (Turns into a tough-luck loss for Kent Simpson; welcome back to the AHL, kid.) A mere 16 power plays, eight goals on special teams, one empty-netter to tie a record in a similar kind of game — well, I guess it’d have to be. […] [Read More]

Poulin out, McDonald up, Pulock on: Friday morning notes

on
A good news/bad news kind of morning at Wonderland for the morning skate. Kevin Poulin was off the ice, in hindsight, not early, but promptly yesterday. Turns out he’s dealing with a lower-body injury of some sort. Brent Thompson said they don’t have results of an MRI yet; that’ll tell them how long an absence […] [Read More]

Persson in, Gillies out, two down: Monday notes

on
Haven’t had a chance to give a look to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton game yet. If I had, I might’ve noticed that Colton Gillies didn’t finish it. Gillies sat out of practice today, at the doctor to evaluate an upper-body injury, Brent Thompson said. Thompson termed him day-to-day. John Persson, on the other hand, appears at least […] [Read More]

Similar in some ways: Providence postgame

on
Another Kevin Poulin shutout of Providence. What else was similar… In that game Nov. 30, Providence had the edge in play a lot of the night — a big edge. In at least one advanced stat (guess which), it was Bridgeport’s worst even-strength night of the year. Not so much tonight. Tonight was top-five at […] [Read More]

And we’ll see who gets on the bus: Providence pregame

on
Kent Simpson was on the ice with the team this morning, one of three goalies. One ventures there won’t be three for long, and it’ll all depend on just how much “maintenance” Jaro Halak needs. But for now, there are three, and Kevin Poulin, somehow winless in four starts now, gets the nod tonight with […] [Read More]

Second chances: Providence postgame

on
They still give up a lot of shots, still spend a lot of time in their own end (though less today in the third, a big part of the finish), still live a little dangerously sometimes. Today’s streak-breakin’ win seemed to limit some of those endless shifts in their own end. Yeah, they had a […] [Read More]
