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]

Some nights: Albany postgame

on
“Some days, we come out flying, playing great,” Adam Pelech said. “Some nights are like that.” Like that. Flat. Uncharacteristic. The inconsistency is to be expected, but sometimes the way they’re inconsistent still surprises you. They were giving up odd-man rushes galore in the first period Wednesday. Albany scored on one of them, and Bridgeport […] [Read More]

Sharper edge: Syracuse postgame 2

on
A little different. “That’s a good team,” Scott Mayfield said. “They gave us some pushes, and we pushed them right back. (Saturday) night, that wasn’t there as much.” The defense had a rough night Saturday. Sunday, it was a strength. The kids have had moments recently where they’ve shown lots of growth, and today was […] [Read More]

Stop that (and that) (and that): Wednesday notes

on
Fun little practice today, in which the lines and pairs were as they’ve been with the addition of one Matt Lashoff, paired with Loic Leduc. At the end they went to a drill, one net on each blue line, top three lines (including Sebastian Collberg, still in red, which Brent Thompson said surprised him a […] [Read More]

Unchanged (for now): Tuesday notes

on
Newbie Matt Lashoff (assigned No. 5, on the AHL site) wasn’t on the ice today at Wonderland, getting his medicals done as Brent Thompson said. So Bridgeport looked exactly the same as it did Saturday. Same lines. Same pairs. Loic Leduc a seventh defenseman. Justin Courtnall with Brett Gallant, Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan. Sebastian […] [Read More]

Portland liveblog (yes, Portland)

on
They’re back downtown, though we’re not. We’ll be listening to Jeff Mannix (audio / video) and following Chris Roy, Paul, Jeff and the Pirates. The box should be here. Elsewhere: Stockton appears a step closer to the AHL and a sale to the Flames. Todd Bertuzzi will be a Binghamton Senator on a PTO. (Bruce […] [Read More]

The four-on-fours will be with you: Albany postgame 2

on
So they start out with two really good shifts, a couple of really good scoring chances, and boom, Joe Whitney flies the zone, Paul Thompson finds him, breakaway, bam, it’s 1-0 Devils, and for crying out loud, is there any “here we go again” going on on the Bridgeport bench? “I don’t think so,” Scott […] [Read More]

Got away late: Worcester postgame

on
In more ways than one, this game got away late from Bridgeport. Late in the game, three Worcester goals. Late in the first two periods, Worcester goals. “Sometimes you take one step back to take two forward,” Brent Thompson said. “It was one of those nights where we weren’t dialed in the way we needed […] [Read More]
