‘Tigers are hot': Providence postgame

Shots were something like 17-3 at one point in the first, all Providence. There are times that doesn’t say much about the territorial game, but tonight, yeah, it did. Totally.

Reiter’s start: Springfield pregame

Kenny Reiter, still looking for that first AHL win, gets his first shot of the season at it today. The lines are tweaked (we saw a preview of some in the third period last night amid all the special teams), but it looks like the same 20 as last night. One to scratch both ways; […] [Read More]
