On Goal: Manchester (2) postgame

on
Edit: Arthur Staple reports Griffin Reinhart is going up to the Islanders. When the game was still sort of in doubt — if it ever truly was — it was the third and fourth lines driving offense. Eberle-Sutter-Markison, Gillies-Sundstrom-Langkow keeping the puck deep. “Listen, the third and fourth lines are giving second and third efforts,” […] [Read More]

Waiting on Harry: Wednesday notes

on
After a workout yesterday, the Sound Tigers got back on the ice Wednesday without Harry Zolnierczyk. Brent Thompson doesn’t expect him to play this three-in-three weekend. Brett Gallant practiced with contact, though, and his conditioning is coming along. They’ll see how it goes over the next couple of days. Reportedly Ferris State goalie C.J. Motte […] [Read More]

Upper body, day-to-day (again): Thursday notes

on
Harry Zolnierczyk remained out Thursday, and Brent Thompson didn’t sound hopeful he’d be back for the weekend. He’s termed day-to-day (upper body). Brett Gallant has practiced the past couple of days, no-contact. Doubt he’s in this weekend, either. Leni DiCostanzo remained in one net (and killed it at Rebound). Unfortunately for all our hopes of […] [Read More]

Goalies and Pirates: Wednesday notes

on
Bridgeport practiced today without Griffin Reinhart, with his family after his grandfather passed away over the weekend, and Harry Zolnierczyk, who was expected to have an upper-body injury evaluated later today, Brent Thompson said. “(Zolnierczyk) played with it last game,” Thompson said. Things looked relatively similar otherwise except in goal, where Leni DiCostanzo filled in […] [Read More]

Returning to action: Providence pregame

on
The returns of John Persson, Brett Gallant and Harry Zolnierczyk rearrange things a bit from how they were last weekend (and all week), though not incredibly. One to scratch; looked like Justin Courtnall. Tommy Cross of Simsbury is a scratch for Providence, which has a slew of injuries, to go with Justin Florek’s illness, costing […] [Read More]

Rearrangements (later): Thursday notes

on
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]

McDonald, Zolnierczyk called: WBS pregame

on
The Islanders put Michael Grabner on injured reserve and, needing a couple of bodies for today’s game, called up Harry Zolnierczyk for the first time and Colin McDonald. That leaves Bridgeport a little short-handed depending on John Persson’s status. He took warmup and took a rush, but it looks as if Bridgeport is preparing to […] [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]
