Two goalies/Arcobello moves again: Wednesday notes

on
Kevin Poulin appears set for a full workload, or at least to participate in a full weekend: Bridgeport sent Kent Simpson back to Stockton. Team otherwise looked as it did yesterday. Mark Arcobello moves on again: Claimed by Arizona. There was a small NHL deal that went down at about the same time, so you […] [Read More]

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.

Illness, injury and more snow: Thursday notes

on
Tweaked lines this morning put former Brown linemates Harry Zolnierczyk and Jack MacLellan back together. Meanwhile, John Persson sat out sick. He was at the doctor while Brent Thompson spoke, and Thompson sounded doubtful that Persson would make the trip. Brett Gallant took practice in a red no-contact sweater; he’ll be seeing the doctor as […] [Read More]

One day closer: Wednesday notes

on
Three goalies on the ice to start practice Wednesday at Harbor Yard: Kevin Poulin was on through the first half or so before he went off. Still no timetable, Brent Thompson said. “Nothing’s changed,” Thompson said. “It’s all reaction to how he responds. Each day that’s a good day, we’ll say well, ok, that’s one […] [Read More]

Waiting on a few things: Tuesday notes

on
And as the header says, may be updated… Still no Brett Gallant (upper body) on the ice; Brent Thompson said he’s going through various tests of exertion over the next few days, and as he’s cleared through those he’ll be closer to getting cleared for practice. Thompson said he’s not expecting Gallant to play this […] [Read More]

An end to comebacks: Portland postgame

on
“I mean, we’re resilient for sure,” Harry Zolnierczyk said. ““It’s our starts.” We’ll take the first period as a whole as a start tonight (because you start with Brett Gallant’s first professional power-play goal, that’s not a bad technical-start). Alex Bolduc’s goal at the front of the net. Evan Oberg’s power-play goal. You can start […] [Read More]

For crying out loud: Hartford postgame

on
These games are just weird. Another tough night for David Leggio. (Turns into a tough-luck loss for Kent Simpson; welcome back to the AHL, kid.) A mere 16 power plays, eight goals on special teams, one empty-netter to tie a record in a similar kind of game — well, I guess it’d have to be. […] [Read More]

Change to come/Vazzano honored: Tuesday notes

on
Arthur Staple’s expecting a callup at forward after the Islanders placed both Kyle Okposo and Eric Boulton on injured reserve before Tuesday’s big home win over the Rangers. Mike Richards, 2005 Calder Cup champion, is now a Manchester Monarch. Congrats to Andrew MacDonald and Hali Sampson, newlyweds. Trumbull’s Alex Vazzano was Atlantic Hockey goalie of […] [Read More]

Ness 1-for-2: Sunday notes

on
Aaron gets stopped in the Breakaway Relay, but we know he'd totally win the Active Stick event if it ever happens… — The Sound Tigers (@TheSoundTigers) January 26, 2015 Aaron Ness false-started in his puck-control relay heat. No problem: He started on time the second time and beat Phil Varone of Rochester by a hair […] [Read More]
