Postgame

Summertime, two months early: 2014-15 wrap

on
Both Brent Thompson and Dave Stickney had their dogs in the room today. Scooter Vaughan walked in, saw them both running around with Jack Gallant, and asked the only logical question: “Where are we right now?” Good question. After 76 games, it’s over, earlier than we ever could’ve imagined in November or even most of […] [Read More]

What it’s all about: Hartford postgame

on
If you remember back in the day, an unremarkable PTO signing, showing up in No. 13, so unremarkable at the time that I wondered from a distance at practice if that was the return of an unremarkable AHL-contract guy Brett Gallant was more or less called up to fight Tim Wallace. They needed him to […] [Read More]

Time flies, seasons change: Syracuse liveblog

on
(One last request: Fake Team Awards balloting ends tonight.) Today is the fifth anniversary of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers’ last playoff win (and 12th of its last series win). Mikko Koskinen beat Braden Holtby in that last victory, Andrew MacDonald scored two power-play goals, Robin Figren had a goal and an assist: Bridgeport beat Hershey […] [Read More]

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]
