Waiting on Harry: Wednesday notes

on
After a workout yesterday, the Sound Tigers got back on the ice Wednesday without Harry Zolnierczyk. Brent Thompson doesn’t expect him to play this three-in-three weekend. Brett Gallant practiced with contact, though, and his conditioning is coming along. They’ll see how it goes over the next couple of days. Reportedly Ferris State goalie C.J. Motte […] [Read More]

Cleaning up: Providence postgame

on
One thing everyone around this team talks about is how hard the players work. Hasn’t been in doubt. The results haven’t followed. They’ve worked to clean things up the whole way here. A lot of them were cleaned up tonight. Goaltending wasn’t bad; Kevin Poulin got beat on a wrister 35 seconds after Andrew Cherniwchan […] [Read More]

Goalies and Pirates: Wednesday notes

on
Bridgeport practiced today without Griffin Reinhart, with his family after his grandfather passed away over the weekend, and Harry Zolnierczyk, who was expected to have an upper-body injury evaluated later today, Brent Thompson said. “(Zolnierczyk) played with it last game,” Thompson said. Things looked relatively similar otherwise except in goal, where Leni DiCostanzo filled in […] [Read More]

Lessons in context: Monday notes

on
Today is the AHL trade/reassignment deadline at 3 p.m. Brett Gallant and Ryan Pulock weren’t on the ice today. Those facts have nothing to do with each other; Gallant and Pulock are both sick, Brent Thompson reports. But those were the two things I most wanted to mention in this post, and accidentally putting them […] [Read More]

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. I watched it as a kid,” said Kevin Czuczman. He said they were told the […] [Read More]

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]
