Uncaged D / Reinhart, right or left: Friday (late) notes

The Big Club fights for its playoff life and its building’s life tomorrow. The banged-up defense has a few different options tomorrow, all involving either Sound Tigers from this season or recent ones. We’ll see how they look at 3 p.m. (or earlier on Twitter). This whole “Has Griffin Reinhart played the right side” thing […] [Read More]

What it’s all about: Hartford postgame

If you remember back in the day, an unremarkable PTO signing, showing up in No. 13, so unremarkable at the time that I wondered from a distance at practice if that was the return of an unremarkable AHL-contract guy Brett Gallant was more or less called up to fight Tim Wallace. They needed him to […] [Read More]

Signs of growth, etc: Hartford postgame

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]

Great time for that: Thursday notes

A bug’s going through the Bridgeport room, apparently. Today, Stephon Williams, Alan Quine and Carson McMillan were all out. The line combinations stayed steady with guys moved up into those spots for the day. (Though I’d kind of like to see what a Gallant-Mouillierat-Collberg line would look like in real life.) John Persson practiced again, […] [Read More]

Three Senator goalies

A goalie fight is a fun rarity to see. Watching a team need to play three goalies is the Holy Grail, like what almost happened in Florida earlier this season. One led to the other tonight in Binghamton against Utica. Chris Driedger had left the game with an injury early in the second period. Peter […] [Read More]

Crunch time: Syracuse liveblog

(But wouldn’t that header work better if) (Yes. Leave it alone.) We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer, Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). This should be the box (Voss, Kaval/Oliver, Trempe). Here’s the Manchester game as the Monarchs chase the Kilpatrick Trophy. If everything breaks right, they could clinch it […] [Read More]

Bartosak stops ‘em in his sleep

Our Goalie couldn't hear the whistle because of crowd noise. The funniest thing I've seen in person at a hockey game. — Paul Bissonnette (@BizNasty2point0) April 5, 2015 That is incredible. That’s Joey Crabb shooting for Hartford and Patrik Bartosak in net for Manchester. A tally there in Round 3 would’ve won the game, […] [Read More]

Coming back, both sides edition: Springfield postgame

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]
