St. John’s 2 Sunday liveblog

Quick turnaround (well, for me, anyway). Believe Brian Rogers’ pregame show begins at 2 (audio here or via “listen live” link at the team’s site/pay-per-view). Follow the Telegram’s aces, Brendan McCarthy and Robin Short, and of course Bridgeport and the IceCaps. Here’s Robin’s gamer from last night. Looks like the Caps are short-handed from the […] [Read More]

St. John’s 1 postgame thoughts

Terse thoughts on Bridgeport’s 2-1 shootout loss, ’cause it’s what time? BRIDGEPORT F: Mouillierat (A)-Quine-McDonald Persson-Stretch-Zolnierczyk Halmo (A)-Sundstrom-Collberg Gallant-Langkow-Vaughan D: Ness (C)-Pulock Reinhart-Graham Czuczman-Mayfield G: Poulin Leggio R: McIsaac, Garon. L: Vail, Day. After the first Bridgeport power play, swap Graham and Mayfield. (Though most of the beginning of the first was slightly mixed-and-matched after […] [Read More]

Comeback wins: Springfield postgame

Coming back from injury Saturday, going back-to-back, Aaron Ness took some good whacks early in Sunday’s game. There was a hard, lateish hit behind the Bridgeport net from Josh Anderson. There was a slash from Brian Gibbons. They both left him looking uncomfortable. “It was a tough game. A lot of things going on there,” […] [Read More]

Three in three, sport unspecified: Albany liveblog

Bridgeport’s first road game of the season is Albany’s home opener, a scheduled 5:05 start. Got a football game to worry about first, so may not be focused here in time. But you sure can be. (Please. Then catch me up.) Listen to Josh at AHL Live. Follow Paul, Pete and the Devils. See you […] [Read More]

6D evidently overrated: Albany Postgame

Fairly sure Griffin Reinhart played more tonight than in his last two NHL games combined. For the second time in three games, a defenseman was missing most of the night (see the pregame post for Aaron Ness’ update; tonight, Andrey Pedan gets the ever-popular interference major/game misconduct for a hit on Stefan Matteau). Then with […] [Read More]

First win: St. John’s Postgame 2

Since winning the very first meeting between the teams in St. John’s — Jeremy Colliton with the overtime goal on Oct. 21, 2011 — Bridgeport was winless in eight against the IceCaps going into Sunday. Since breaking their first long winless streak of the end of last year — a big day for the PTOs […] [Read More]

Outshot, shot down: St. John’s postgame 1

Shots on goal don’t always reflect the flow of a game, the territory of a game, the possession in a game. But for two periods, these kinda did. Actually, so did the third’s, but we digress. Bridgeport led 2-0 though the IceCaps had an edge in shots and in chances, in part because of one […] [Read More]

Thirteen Years Gone: Hartford postgame

So the last day. Poulin’s spectacular, hecklers be damned (we’ll take the sober ones over the drunk ones; that’s a rant for another day). One deflection by a guy untouched at the top of the crease. They can’t find a way to beat Dov Grumet-Morris, equally stellar, who robs Sundstrom on a power-play glove save […] [Read More]

Two to go: Adirondack liveblog

Last call, before we get to tonight: Fake Team Awards voting remains open until 11 tonight. Both awards can still be determined. The Phantoms wrap up their time in Glens Falls tonight, though there’s a lot to be determined about whether there’ll be someone replacing them next year (a lot to be determined everywhere, as […] [Read More]

Springfield postgame: I mean, come on

Seriously. “We had a couple of mistakes on the penalty kill that cost us,” Scott Pellerin said. “It’s going to happen in a game. We had some other opportunities to finish, to get two points; 5.4 seconds away from getting a point? Come on.” No way: That’s what I said. He’s frustrated, and it’s hard […] [Read More]
