Game plans: Lehigh Valley postgame

To sort-of steal a line from Bracken Kearns, 10 games ago, who knows how this turns out. They’re down 2-0 early, then again by a goal after they erase that deficit. “We stayed with it,” Ben Holmstrom

Feeling it: Albany postgame

Ryan Pulock’s blocked shot takes some of the juice out of this one, though we have no information yet whether he’ll miss so much as the skills contest, let alone time after the break. Which is kind of

Working blue: Hartford postgame

Hockey folks talk a lot about plays at the blue line, whether yours or theirs. Get a puck out, and buy yourself some time. Keep a puck in, and get yourself a scoring chance. Fail, and you’re chasing.

Portland liveblog (1/2)

We’ll be listening to Paul on AHL Live. You could also listen to Jeff Mannix (audio / video) if you’d like the Portland side. We’ll be following Chris Roy, Paul, Jeff and the Pirates. The box should

Stop rallying: Hartford postgame

Two nights in a row they had a chance to tie it late and couldn’t quite find twine; two mirror-image 5-4 losses this weekend. Mirror-images, in fact, because they fell behind 3-1 and 5-2 both nights.

Scoring without winning: Providence postgame

There was that long stretch where they didn’t win without scoring three. Today is only the second time this season (Oct. 24 in St. John’s) when they scored four but lost. “I liked the way the forwards
