Signs of growth, etc: Hartford postgame

on
Yann Danis, 32 shots, 30 saves, a few big ones, bad breaks, you feel like you’ve seen this episode before. But it’s the little things, like the Minions playing a solid game, like Adam Pelech and Scott Mayfield and Mark Louis jumping in and getting some scoring chances and making you think maybe this is […] [Read More]

Age just a number, red just a color: Tuesday notes

Kabanov, Schremp, Rakshani och Tambellini på isen samtidigt just nu. Bridgeport Soundtigers gör avtryck överallt! — Robin Figren (@figge_22) April 14, 2015 Meanwhile back in the States, Bridgeport had 15 forwards and six defensemen (with Griffin Reinhart up with the Islanders) on the ice for practice today. No Brett Gallant (who’s expected for the weekend, Brent […] [Read More]

Second-to-last weekend: Thursday notes

on
Status quo on the ice this morning for Bridgeport. No Halmo, day-to-day, no roadie, figure questionable for the weekend. No Zolnierczyk, day-to-day, but he still hasn’t had a contact practice. Persson on, still in red, though he took “sorta contact,” as Brent Thompson said. He reiterated that each goalie will get a game this weekend, […] [Read More]

Just in time: Worcester postgame

on
So they’ve figured out how to put teams away. Shame about that whole February thing. This is actually their first winning streak since that Chris Langkow goal in overtime to beat Hartford here on Feb. 7, their first regulation-time winning streak since Kevin Poulin shut down Portland up there in early January. They’d been OK […] [Read More]

Sunny day: Syracuse postgame

on
Stephon Williams stole the show — I mean, that diving glove save on Matthew Peca is gonna stand out a little — but Johan Sundstrom getting the winner, man… “Listen, he definitely deserved it, with all the chances he’s had all year,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s done a great job for us on the penalty […] [Read More]

Coming back, both sides edition: Springfield postgame

on
As the kids roll in (and maybe start rolling in in earnest), holdovers like Mike Halmo have their roles to play, getting the top-six minutes, and in particular in Halmo’s case, working his way back from missing much of the year. “I think I’m just finally getting back in game shape,” Halmo said. “A lot […] [Read More]

Killed, revived, killed: Hershey postgame

on
The penalty kill had come around the past five games. Less so today, giving up two on a boarding major (5-foot-11, 186-pound Sebastian Collberg) and one on a five-on-three. Ballgame. Sort of. Bridgeport fought its way back, one of its most dominant games at even strength in a while, helped by the defense getting involved […] [Read More]

Sadly rare Binghamton liveblog

on
Bridgeport pays its lone visit to Binghamton tonight. After they were division rivals and, for one brief, shining moment, playoff rivals, they have met just once in each city for six years in a row now. Understandable but disappointing. Anyway. We’ll be listening to Grady Whittenburg (audio / video). We’ll be following the assembled Matt […] [Read More]
