Add a second ref, Jason Rollins, whom Bridgeport has seen just once: 50 weeks ago in Norfolk. Prescout here. […] [Read More]

No need to yell: Hartford postgame

on
There’s no reason, Scooter Vaughan said, that this team should be forcing the coaches to blister the paint between periods, to get the blood pressure up. They know what they’ve got to do. They’ve got to do it. “The game’s played with passion, emotion, heart,” Brent Thompson said. “We have to harness that. … We […] [Read More]

Killing them: WBS postgame

on
We are eight days shy of the 10th anniversary — seriously? How the heck — of the seven-second-delay game, in which Greg Cronin let loose on a Wes McCauley no-goal call in his postgame interview, complete with visual aids (the game film). Brent Thompson didn’t break out video on us for this one, so it’s […] [Read More]

It happens: Lehigh Valley postgame

on
Things happen, like injuries (John Persson is “week to week,” though nothing major, is how Brent Thompson termed it), curious unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties, accidental backhanders short-side. For the most part, Bridgeport’s response all weekend to those was pretty good. “Our response was excellent tonight,” Thompson said. “We didn’t hang our heads. We played hard.” It got […] [Read More]

Without Pulock: Hershey liveblog

on
No roadie for us, but an extra one for Ryan Pulock, called up this afternoon to make seven defensemen with Travis Hamonic on injured reserve. We’ll hang out here and listen to a game with a suddenly thinned-out Bridgeport defense corps — these things change in a day, don’t they? good thing for versatility — […] [Read More]

Second chances: Providence postgame

on
They still give up a lot of shots, still spend a lot of time in their own end (though less today in the third, a big part of the finish), still live a little dangerously sometimes. Today’s streak-breakin’ win seemed to limit some of those endless shifts in their own end. Yeah, they had a […] [Read More]

Hour’s effort: Hartford postgame

on
Well. Brent Thompson had talked last night about shooting more. Asked Aaron Ness about it, and he pointed to those 10 shots on goal after two. “It’s not good enough,” he said. It goes through the team, forwards, defensemen, getting traffic, everything. Then he was off to sign autographs. And before long, he was back […] [Read More]

Manchester liveblog, Black Friday edition

on
Livebloggery here, Bridgeport in Manchester. We’ll be listening to Ken Cail (audio link on Manchester’s site/pay-per-view). The Monarchs are on the Twitter at @MonarchsHockey, Ken’s at @KenMonarchs, and Paul’s at @thesoundtigers. Mini stick night at Verizon Wireless Arena! Hustle up there. The box should be here, and I think this’ll be the Hartford prescout. Hartford […] [Read More]
