Game plans: Lehigh Valley postgame

To sort-of steal a line from Bracken Kearns, 10 games ago, who knows how this turns out. They’re down 2-0 early, then again by a goal after they erase that deficit. “We stayed with it,” Ben Holmstrom

All hands back on deck: Thursday notes

If Bridgeport had practiced Monday and Ryan Pulock had never blocked that shot Saturday night, I imagine this is how it would have looked. Same lines. Same pairs, except Loic Leduc in for Scott

“Were they sent to hell?” “Worse, Wisconsin”: pregame notes

Liveblog on a separate post, because this set of accumulated notes and links got long after a day off, a trip to Stratford for golbol presentations, and a haircut: Quite the night last night for Adam

Quine STILL closer: Wednesday notes

Further to yesterday’s post and this morning’s story, Alan Quine took contact this morning in practice and said he felt good. Brent Thompson reiterated that they’ll take it day by day, but it’s a
