Springfield postgame: I mean, come on

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]

Gallant to The Show

on
Brett Gallant’s an NHLer. Fresh off yesterday’s record-setter, Gallant got the call from the Isles today. After 141 AHL games, the last 140 of them here, he could make his NHL debut tomorrow. Got to be one of the neater call-ups for this team, a guy who came up that first time, we figured, as […] [Read More]

Teen Beat: WBS liveblog

on
I’ve now missed four Sound Tigers trips to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 13 years. Two were because of blizzards. One was because the car and I kind of got knocked around that one time (pardon me, upper-body, day-to-day, for the past 2,900 days). And tonight. What can you do. What we’ll do is listen to Mike O’Brien […] [Read More]

Hockey in New Haven: Wednesday notes

on
While Yale and Fairfield’s staffs take over Webster Bank Arena this weekend, the Sound Tigers borrow Yale’s barn. Bridgeport will practice at Ingalls Rink the next three days. (We’ll probably miss out, over with the Fairfield and Yale folks.) No apparent changes to the roster today. Slackers. Tonight Roy Sommer coached his 1,257th AHL game, […] [Read More]

No. 56: Tuesday notes

on
After sending Adam Brace down yesterday, Bridgeport had Ben Rosen up here today, flying in on the red-eye to practice. He’s the latest to inherit No. 25; I was kind of hoping doubly he might be No. 56, first because that’s the lowest unworn number in team history, but also because he could be the […] [Read More]

Today’s deal, yesterday’s ATOs, snow and sadness

on
Edit: Took a while to get the “that’s all” signal, but just the Jackson for Langlois deal for Bridgeport. No reported call-ups or send-downs, either: 16 F (with one presumed to be going for Michael Grabner), 6 D, 2 G. They’ll adjust if they have to, Scott Pellerin said, but that’s what they’ve got for […] [Read More]

Amateur stuff: Sunday notes

on
As college seasons begin to finish, ATO season begins. The Isles don’t have any college-senior draft picks, but they haven’t been shy the past few years about bringing in others. The draft picks in juniors are all in the playoffs except, at the moment, for Ryan Pulock. Brandon’s in a three-team dogfight for two spots […] [Read More]

Links from away: St. John’s pregame 1

on
As noted, out of touch for tonight’s Sound Tigers game in St. John’s. It’s bad enough not actually being in St. John’s. Anyway. You’ve got AHL Live for video and possibly audio, depending on how things set up, but in past years we’ve also gotten a stream here, with the bonus of local music; not […] [Read More]

Bus terminal of the skies: Thursday notes

Flew home LGA – YYZ with the polite, prompt Bridgeport Sound Tigers, AHL farm team of NYI. Connecting to St. John's NF for wknd games. — Lance Hornby (@sunhornby) March 6, 2014 There you go. Programming note: On assignment Friday night, so the liveblog won’t be so live. Will set up some links beforehand. Should […] [Read More]

Don’t cry for me, Argentina: Tuesday notes (updated)

on
EDIT: Meshing with the gossip of the day (on- and offline): ECHL transactions say Stockton’s Joey Martin’s heading to Bridgeport. Martin’s been a point-a-gamer this year for Stockton. The PTO will presumably come on arrival. First question: “Anything new?” Scott Pellerin was all business, though. Figures on a couple of players coming but didn’t have […] [Read More]
