Signs of growth, etc: Hartford postgame

on
Yann Danis, 32 shots, 30 saves, a few big ones, bad breaks, you feel like you’ve seen this episode before. But it’s the little things, like the Minions playing a solid game, like Adam Pelech and Scott Mayfield and Mark Louis jumping in and getting some scoring chances and making you think maybe this is […] [Read More]

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]

Full-tilt: Manchester (1) postgame

on
Well, that was fun. A little bit of everything, from big-time heavyweight bouts (got a kick out of Matt Carkner saying he hadn’t seen Josh Gratton in a while) to crazy near-comebacks (lots of postgame talk about how those bouts got things sparked, “got a little jam back in our step,” Aaron Ness said) to […] [Read More]

Crunch time: Syracuse liveblog

on
(But wouldn’t that header work better if) (Yes. Leave it alone.) We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer, Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). This should be the box (Voss, Kaval/Oliver, Trempe). Here’s the Manchester game as the Monarchs chase the Kilpatrick Trophy. If everything breaks right, they could clinch it […] [Read More]

Just in time: Worcester postgame

on
So they’ve figured out how to put teams away. Shame about that whole February thing. This is actually their first winning streak since that Chris Langkow goal in overtime to beat Hartford here on Feb. 7, their first regulation-time winning streak since Kevin Poulin shut down Portland up there in early January. They’d been OK […] [Read More]

Sunny day: Syracuse postgame

on
Stephon Williams stole the show — I mean, that diving glove save on Matthew Peca is gonna stand out a little — but Johan Sundstrom getting the winner, man… “Listen, he definitely deserved it, with all the chances he’s had all year,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s done a great job for us on the penalty […] [Read More]

Coming back, both sides edition: Springfield postgame

on
As the kids roll in (and maybe start rolling in in earnest), holdovers like Mike Halmo have their roles to play, getting the top-six minutes, and in particular in Halmo’s case, working his way back from missing much of the year. “I think I’m just finally getting back in game shape,” Halmo said. “A lot […] [Read More]

Killed, revived, killed: Hershey postgame

on
The penalty kill had come around the past five games. Less so today, giving up two on a boarding major (5-foot-11, 186-pound Sebastian Collberg) and one on a five-on-three. Ballgame. Sort of. Bridgeport fought its way back, one of its most dominant games at even strength in a while, helped by the defense getting involved […] [Read More]
