Rampant nostalgia

Forgetting the past: Binghamton postgame

on
For the sake of all that’s holy: Forgot to ask Mouillierat why he left warmup early. Other things had happened in between, like this (in the Idaho version, I think that’s Chris Bruton who follows him behind the net) and six more goals. It’d been a while since they’d gone to center ice and saluted […] [Read More]

Mouillierat goes high wrap (updated)

on
Guess Kael Mouillierat was fine, early warmup departure or no. The AHL tweeted a .gif of his opening the scoring tonight with the ol’ High Wrap, picking the puck up on his stick blade, lacrosse-style whipping it around from Peter Mannino’s right and scoring. Edit, 10:45 p.m.: Should’ve put this on earlier, but the Sound […] [Read More]

Places in history: Lehigh Valley pregame

on
Game 60 tonight. Time hurries along sometimes, and sometimes it drags (Matt Donovan plays tonight up top for the first time in two months, for instance #FreeDono). Seeing Donovan’s release from the cage while waiting for high schools this morning, I got to wondering about this: All-time Bridgeport defenseman scoring Name GP G A Pts […] [Read More]

No continuation, another loss: Worcester postgame

on
Biggest difference between this thing and Saturday’s win? “Overall urgency,” Brent Thompson said. “Each one-on-one battle. That was the difference. We didn’t win enough one-on-one battles. We lost D-side positioning.” The Sharks scored two quick goals in the second and didn’t have that lead particularly threatened. There were a few big drives on the power […] [Read More]

Broken records: Matt Murray and the ’03-04 Sound Tigers

on
Quick diversion before we start: Looks like the fresh start suited David Leggio nicely in his first Portland start. Matt Murray’s a bum. He gave up infinitely more goals in the last two minutes today than he had in the previous 300. And I mean, I’m no math major, but when your track record says […] [Read More]

Status quo until the release comes: Monday notes

on
Same cast of characters on the ice today, including Sebastian Collberg on his 21st birthday*. It may not be the same for long, because they may need a replacement: Official word should come down today on Scott Mayfield’s suspension for leaving the penalty box. Will be writing more about it for the paper. They will […] [Read More]

A chair may have feared for its life, Vol 2: Tuesday notes

on
Things got a little crazy when @TheSoundTigers hung out at #JerryJerry! We hope you guys had fun & come back soon! pic.twitter.com/ehbmoItheQ — Jerry Springer Show (@SpringerTV) February 10, 2015 Not a bad day off, I guess. “It was fun. I watched it as a kid,” said Kevin Czuczman. He said they were told the […] [Read More]

Somewhere not in the swamps of Jersey: Albany pregame

on
Just up the road 11 years ago tomorrow, Bridgeport played Albany in the Meadowlands at Continental Airlines Arena, later the Izod Center, soon to be closed. Mattias Timander had just been traded. Bridgeport lost 2-1 that Thursday night. At a newer building in a downtown setting, the Sound Tigers will meet a team that isn’t […] [Read More]

Shots on goal, near goal, around goal: Providence pre/postgame

on
Those first 25 minutes, man. I know I didn’t tweet ‘em much (sigh), but what I got out, I guess, helped do them in. Game could’ve been over. It seemed Providence couldn’t cross the blue line in the first period. Bridgeport kept going the other way and not scoring. Or not getting a shot off. […] [Read More]

Stop that (and that) (and that): Wednesday notes

on
Fun little practice today, in which the lines and pairs were as they’ve been with the addition of one Matt Lashoff, paired with Loic Leduc. At the end they went to a drill, one net on each blue line, top three lines (including Sebastian Collberg, still in red, which Brent Thompson said surprised him a […] [Read More]
