Signs of growth, etc: Hartford postgame

Yann Danis, 32 shots, 30 saves, a few big ones, bad breaks, you feel like you’ve seen this episode before. But it’s the little things, like the Minions playing a solid game, like Adam Pelech and Scott Mayfield and Mark Louis jumping in and getting some scoring chances and making you think maybe this is […] [Read More]

Pulock (and Pokka) named all-rookie

The AHL’s all-rookie team includes a Sound Tiger for the seventh time in 14 years: Ryan Pulock’s 17 goals helped earn him the honor, as the league announced today. Pulock is joined on the team by Islanders draft pick Ville Pokka, who has 30 points and rates a plus-2 for Rockford. Pokka was technically assigned […] [Read More]

Just in time: Worcester postgame

So they’ve figured out how to put teams away. Shame about that whole February thing. This is actually their first winning streak since that Chris Langkow goal in overtime to beat Hartford here on Feb. 7, their first regulation-time winning streak since Kevin Poulin shut down Portland up there in early January. They’d been OK […] [Read More]

Sunny day: Syracuse postgame

Stephon Williams stole the show — I mean, that diving glove save on Matthew Peca is gonna stand out a little — but Johan Sundstrom getting the winner, man… “Listen, he definitely deserved it, with all the chances he’s had all year,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s done a great job for us on the penalty […] [Read More]

Pulock coming back: Thursday notes

Ryan Pulock was back taking the first set of drills alongside Aaron Ness at Wonderland today, which was a good tipoff: Bridgeport’s expecting Pulock to be available this weekend for the first time since Jan. 2. Everything’s feeling good, he said. More on him in tomorrow’s paper. Chris Langkow and Justin Courtnall were back on […] [Read More]

Rearrangements (later): Thursday notes

Day of transactions, not that you’d know it from practice: The same cast was on today as was on yesterday. The most notable change was that Ryan Pulock is out of the red no-contact jersey and back in real-boy defenseman’s blue. He’s not playing this weekend, but that’s a step closer. Brent Thompson was hopeful […] [Read More]

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

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]

Green lights: Pulock, Thursday notes

Cory Conacher and Matt Lashoff were on the ice today with the Sound Tigers as they came back from break, prepared for a (break-wise) second half that’ll need a push to make the playoffs, which seemed so much a given at the start of the year. They may get a little help. May. Eventually. Brent […] [Read More]
