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]

Down with a fight (eventually): Springfield postgame

on
The gamer is almost exclusively about the last 35 seconds, so I’ll try to dwell on the first 59:25 here after mentioning that Brett Gallant, if nothing somehow changes, has a suspension of two automatic games coming to him, one for the instigator in the last five minutes, one for his third game misconduct (he […] [Read More]

Blasting away: Hartford postgame 2

on
Normally I write about something, and… well, it’s like the SI cover jinx. Sometimes it’s just regression to the mean. But last week I wrote Griffin Reinhart, and he got hurt. This week, I wrote Ryan Pulock to advance the weekend… and he’s got three goals in two games. It struck me even last night […] [Read More]

Poulin Wall ’14: Hartford postgame 1

on
You look up at the end of the night, and it’s 6-1, and the goaltender ends up third star. Sometimes credit for the goalie gets a little lost in a night like this. “He didn’t get lost,” Brent Thompson said. “He was very noticeable. … Whenever there was a breakdown, he was there to shut […] [Read More]

Ruining averages: 6-for-6 Albany postgame

on
When Ben Thomson was penalized for roughing up Colin McDonald — who’d neatly rope-a-doped Darcy Zajac three minutes earlier, making Bridgeport 6-for-6, seriously, SIX-FOR-SIX, on the power play — and Kael Mouillierat stepped in to cut him off, I thought, well-played, kid. Even this thing up. Playing with fire here. Mouillierat didn’t get a penalty. […] [Read More]

Playoffs somewhere: Monday notes

on
Bridgeport treated today’s practice a little like a morning skate, Scott Pellerin said, complete with the forwards all wearing orange rather than different colors for different lines. That’s OK. A slew of Sound Tigers weren’t there anymore. Stockton should be loaded up next month. Bridgeport sent Matt Mangene, Jeremy Langlois and Riley Wetmore to the […] [Read More]

Diamond, Quine to Stockton/Wetmore, Brace up

on
Bridgeport has sent Joey Diamond and Alan Quine down to Stockton and called up Adam Brace, acquired about a month ago for Mike Dalhuisen, and Riley Wetmore. The timing seemed more curious to me than the move (though Diamond was in-and-out even now), but Scott Pellerin said there were other factors around the rest of […] [Read More]

Heavy penalties: Manchester postgame

on
The parade to the box was consistent. Maybe some were overzealous; regardless, it’s not like Tim Mayer put the whistle away later, and hey, consistency’s great. (In fact, I thought he was calling something at the buzzer; it’s not on the sheet.) You’ve just got to take advantage at some point. Bridgeport didn’t let Manchester, […] [Read More]
