Every second counts: Springfield postgame

Last night’s even-strength unblocked shot attempts in the second period, by my silly “scribble plusses and minuses” method: 17-9 in Providence’s favor. Today’s for Springfield: somewhat ridiculous

Fateful Friday (update: clinch): Portland liveblog

The Sound Tigers and Islanders both made the playoffs in each of Bridgeport’s first three seasons, 2002-04. It has never happened since. That could change tonight with two points. We’ll be listening

Sure shots: Portland postgame

That’s the break, y’all: Portland (2) postgame
