The General Category: Monday notes

on
We can chuckle about the roughing major, but it struck me too late last night that changing it to a cross-check does have a potential effect down the road. There are two classes of game misconducts; there are stick fouls, boarding and checking-from-behind, and then there’s everything else*. You get a game’s suspension if you […] [Read More]

Cross-checking back: Albany postgame

on
This could’ve been another one of those nights, another game to turn on a curious penalty call and drift away into yet another 4-1 or 6-3 or 3-0 or whatever kind of game. It did not. They weren’t playing horribly in the first two periods anyway, but the third was a strong one in particular. […] [Read More]

Sacrificing for a point

on
Like a lot of the Sound Tigers, right to the end, Chris Bruton was laying out to block a shot. Hard to believe in a game where 45 shots got through to Kenny Reiter, but Bridgeport blocked a lot of shots tonight. “It helped us build momentum,” Bruton said. “We played the hard-nosed hockey we […] [Read More]

#KennyReiterWinWatch

on
It’s over. After 10 starts and 11 decisions without a victory, Kenny Reiter finally has a win. “He’s a huge competitor. He keeps us in games,” Scott Pellerin said. “I’m very happy he got his first win.” Like two-thirds of the gamer is on him, so we’ll let that stand while pointing out that, if […] [Read More]

Friday Night Boxes

RT @JesseDEisenberg: Equipment manager Boggsy with an assist on the #isles GWG. That means he has to do media http://t.co/XOq9b8qeEP Ben Rosen scored his first pro goal, followed up with his first pro assist, and helped Stockton hang on for a win at Bakersfield (against former future Sound Tiger Blake Kessel, who recently signed with […] [Read More]

Icing hybridized

on
As we noted last week, the AHL was going to follow suit with whatever the NHL decided about icing. The NHL voted to go with hybrid icing (no-touch, but it can be waved off if the attacking player will clearly win the race by the dots) today. The AHL followed suit. [Read More]

Rules Changes ’14

on
Tip of cap to Jason Iacona, who caught that the new rule book has made its appearance. Here are the changes I caught in a side-by-side comparison: –Diagrams: The AHL’s regulation net, like the NHL’s, is four inches shallower. –Rule 9.6 is now “Helmets,” broken out from 9.5 (protective equipment) into its own section. Helmets […] [Read More]

Robber Barons

on
Oklahoma City trailed by two goals with less than 11 minutes to play in Game 6 on Tuesday. Goodnight, Irene, etc. Except the Barons came back and stole the game. Mark Arcobello scored his second goal (12th of the playoffs) with 10:19 to go. Yann Danis stopped a Tomas Jurco penalty shot with 8:38 to […] [Read More]

You mean the goalie

on
There was a potentially huge addition for the Sound Tigers on the ice today at Wonderland, on early. Johan Sundstrom got through the pre-practice skate OK. The plan is for him to skate again tomorrow before practice. Out since mid-January after taking a blow to the head, and considering how well he had played, Sundstrom […] [Read More]
