Time off might be good: Portland postgame

on
They were competitive. They worked hard. They were all over the Pirates most of the third period, shots on goal aside. But it’s another loss. It’s a point, but it’s another loss. “We’re in pretty much every game,” Colin McDonald said. “We really didn’t give up much tonight, just a couple of turnovers that ended […] [Read More]

Non-home part of home-and-home: Portland (road) pregame

on
Just got my electric bill. Can I borrow a defibrillator? Bridgeport starts a home-and-home in Portland tonight. After Wednesday’s bleh performance and the expected return of a couple of regulars, I’m not really sure what the lineup will look like. I mean, I could make a reasonable guess, I think, but the fine details, we’ll […] [Read More]

Some nights: Albany postgame

on
“Some days, we come out flying, playing great,” Adam Pelech said. “Some nights are like that.” Like that. Flat. Uncharacteristic. The inconsistency is to be expected, but sometimes the way they’re inconsistent still surprises you. They were giving up odd-man rushes galore in the first period Wednesday. Albany scored on one of them, and Bridgeport […] [Read More]

Sharper edge: Syracuse postgame 2

on
A little different. “That’s a good team,” Scott Mayfield said. “They gave us some pushes, and we pushed them right back. (Saturday) night, that wasn’t there as much.” The defense had a rough night Saturday. Sunday, it was a strength. The kids have had moments recently where they’ve shown lots of growth, and today was […] [Read More]

Two points: Syracuse postgame

on
There were two points when this game could’ve gone either way, though obviously the second one was a harder climb. The first eight, eight and a half minutes of this thing were played pretty even. High pace. Fun to watch. Teams breaking up odd-man rushes. Teams missing open nets. (Someone may’ve tweeted that. Sorry for […] [Read More]

Shots on goal, near goal, around goal: Providence pre/postgame

on
Those first 25 minutes, man. I know I didn’t tweet ‘em much (sigh), but what I got out, I guess, helped do them in. Game could’ve been over. It seemed Providence couldn’t cross the blue line in the first period. Bridgeport kept going the other way and not scoring. Or not getting a shot off. […] [Read More]

Got one: Hartford postgame

on
That’s not playoff hockey, you know. The 60 minutes before it had its moments — the first two periods were totally Sunday-afternoon hockey, shots on goal 13-10 and whatnot, but still — and then it comes to four-on-four, and David Leggio, who’d given up one from 90 feet a period earlier, makes some big saves. […] [Read More]

Last Ride In: Albany liveblog

on
We knew this day would come: Finally, seeing Albany every other game is winding down. This is the last game between the teams that’s in an AHL arena. (There’s one more Jan. 21 in Newark.) (Albany’s role in Bridgeport’s schedule will be played from now on by Syracuse: The Crunch and Sound Tigers begin an […] [Read More]

Portland liveblog (yes, Portland)

They’re back downtown, though we’re not. We’ll be listening to Jeff Mannix (audio / video) and following Chris Roy, Paul, Jeff and the Pirates. The box should be here. Elsewhere: Stockton appears a step closer to the AHL and a sale to the Flames. Todd Bertuzzi will be a Binghamton Senator on a PTO. (Bruce […] [Read More]

The four-on-fours will be with you: Albany postgame 2

on
So they start out with two really good shifts, a couple of really good scoring chances, and boom, Joe Whitney flies the zone, Paul Thompson finds him, breakaway, bam, it’s 1-0 Devils, and for crying out loud, is there any “here we go again” going on on the Bridgeport bench? “I don’t think so,” Scott […] [Read More]
