No continuation, another loss: Worcester postgame

on
Biggest difference between this thing and Saturday’s win? “Overall urgency,” Brent Thompson said. “Each one-on-one battle. That was the difference. We didn’t win enough one-on-one battles. We lost D-side positioning.” The Sharks scored two quick goals in the second and didn’t have that lead particularly threatened. There were a few big drives on the power […] [Read More]

Lamoureux coming: Tuesday notes

on
For the moment Tuesday morning at Wonderland, the Sound Tigers looked more or less as expected: With Matt Lashoff out after taking a high hit Sunday, status quo ante on defense (Lashoff isn’t expected to play this week, Brent Thompson said); the second and third lines in another assorted combination. But there will be a […] [Read More]

Back to resembling normal: Tuesday notes

on
All hands on deck this morning for Bridgeport, including Jesse Graham (in non-contact red), Johan Sundstrom (back in green with the full line that played the other day, Persson-Quine-Gillies) and Ryan Pulock (so evidently the just-in-case case did not materialize). Scooter Vaughan was back in forward’s light blue though he took some shifts on defense […] [Read More]

One’s out (not that one): Hartford pregame

on
We went into today’s pregame wondering about Griffin Reinhart’s status. He’s giving it a go tonight, but missing is Johan Sundstrom, injured (lower body) on the overtime penalty kill last night. He and Sebastian Collberg sit out, with John Persson and Justin Courtnall drawing back in. Adam Pelech also goes back in for Jesse Graham. […] [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]

Strome all-rookie (Langlois, too)

on
Ryan Strome obviously had a remarkable rookie year for Bridgeport, though you had to wonder whether voters planned to focus on that brilliance in a short period of time (crazy stat in tomorrow’s notebook; meanwhile, despite playing just 37 games, Strome’s still sixth among rookie scorers) or would reward those who’d been in the AHL […] [Read More]

Gallant to The Show

on
Brett Gallant’s an NHLer. Fresh off yesterday’s record-setter, Gallant got the call from the Isles today. After 141 AHL games, the last 140 of them here, he could make his NHL debut tomorrow. Got to be one of the neater call-ups for this team, a guy who came up that first time, we figured, as […] [Read More]

Adirondack liveblog

on
Second game of the roadie at Adirondack tonight. We’ll be listening to Bob Rotruck (A href=”http://tunein.com/radio/Q1017-s28560/”>audio/video) and following Corey, Diana, Bob and the Phantoms on Twitter. With Michael Grabner back and emergency conditions terminated, the Islanders sent Johan Sundstrom down this afternoon. Wouldn’t imagine he gets to Glens Falls, but we’ll see, as well as […] [Read More]

No milestone: Albany postgame

Partly Sunny: Thursday notes

on
Scott Pellerin reiterated what he said at the beginning of the week: “(Johan Sundstrom)’s not going to play tomorrow. We’re going to wait a little longer,” he said. “Which is fine. He’s looking good. We’ll keep pushing him and make sure he’s ready next week.” That leaves, as noted yesterday, one extra, with Brett Gallant […] [Read More]
