Remembering, three years later: weekend notes

on
Sept. 7 remains a great day in lots of ways for me: important family day, and it’s the anniversary of the blog (entering its 10th season, somehow). But now it’s also the anniversary of the Lokomotiv plane crash. Still devastating to think about checking the Yaroslavl roster page over at EliteProspects that night three years […] [Read More]

What’s on sale: Tuesday notes

on
The sale of the Islanders doesn’t sound as if it includes Harbor Yard Sports and Entertainment at the moment. That’s what we heard from Bridgeport, most directly from Howard Saffan. He’s impressed with both new owners. They’ll take their two years and see how everything goes. As of now, Saffan said, HYS&E isn’t involved. Two […] [Read More]

Penguins come back (2x): Saturday notes

on
The story Friday in Wilkes-Barre was whether Chuck Kobasew, out since St. John’s Game 1, or Andrew Ebbett, out since the Binghamton series. could return for Saturday’s Game 5. Four points later, yes, yes they can. Game 6 is Tuesday in St. John’s after the Penguins tied it with 7:30 left, won it with under […] [Read More]

Worlds board/high school boarding majors: Tuesday notes

on
It’ll be USA-Czech Republic bright ‘n’ early Thursday morning in the Worlds quarterfinals. The United States won both those must-win games and finished second, taking Tuesday morning’s game 5-4 against Germany. Matt Donovan had one of the Americans’ four go-ahead goals. Johnny Gaudreau’s did it for good. Ovechkinless Russia still beat Belarus to keep the […] [Read More]

Game 7 in NEPA/Morris speaks: Monday notes

on
There’ll be a Game 7 on Saturday Wednesday at Wilkes-Barre. A controversial disallowed goal went against the Penguins, and the Bruins went on to win 4-1 after an empty-netter. So two years in a row with a seven-game series between these two. Hey, realign and put ‘em in the same division. Tim Leone caught up […] [Read More]

Playoff weather: Saturday boxes

on
After getting too much sun at Fairfield, waiting for Prep lacrosse, then waiting for Chaminade, then watching a pretty good but not-good-enough-for-Prep game… An assist for Brock Nelson in a come-from-behind win over Switzerland at the Worlds. (Andrei Kostitsyn got a game’s suspension for a hit on Matt Donovan on Friday.) In that group, a […] [Read More]

Replay, scoreboard

on
There’s one crazy moment in the middle — darn, almost right in the middle — of regulation to talk about, but the other crazy moments are mostly saves. Tyler Beskorowany made a ton of them. Shake your head at a few of them. Chris Langkow passing up a shot in the slot, feeding Scooter Vaughan […] [Read More]

Hartford postgame notes

on
Phil mentioned part of this during the broadcast of this one, and it was something I almost tweeted last night (and probably good I didn’t, because I’d have used yesterday’s practice combos, and I’d have been wrong about tonight’s group). On opening night, Bridgeport’s lineup included 16 guys on NHL contracts and four guys on […] [Read More]

Pereira debuts: Worcester pregame

on
Edit: The Islanders announced they’ve got contract terms with Adam Pelech. He plays on with Erie, and could play for a while. But he’s under contract. It’s ATO season everywhere, and West Haven’s Mike Pereira is going to make his pro debut tonight for the Worcester Sharks. He just finished his senior year at UMass, […] [Read More]

Not Friday yet: Thursday notes

on
Edit, 5:10 p.m.: Well, it’s CBA Friday: The Islanders have called up Johan Sundstrom. He could get his first crack in an NHL sweater tomorrow night. In this case, they’ve used emergency recall. Original post follows. So we await word on a recall. The Islanders have defensemen like Bridgeport has forwards — you’d think there’d […] [Read More]
