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]

Accurate: skills contest plus Tuesday notes

on
Ryan Strome hit two posts, then hit four targets in succession to set the bar with a 4-for-6 in the accuracy competition. Then Magnus Nygren and Jason Jaffray matched him. He still gets a share of the title, joining Trent Hunter (same event, 2003 at Portland) as Sound Tigers to win an individual event at […] [Read More]

Two stories

on
Scott Pellerin said he got two different stories. And in a way, there’s two for his team, too. Pellerin was talking about the two stories about that unsportsmanlike minor at the end. His guys told him one thing about Dallas Jackson’s conversation with referee Graham Skilliter after their late-game collision and Skilliter’s near-immediate penalty call […] [Read More]

Wednesday’s ins and outs

on
Let’s start brighter for Bridgeport, injury-wise: John Persson returned to full contact this morning. He was the fourth guy on the Wiles-Langkow-Bruton line, keeping the other four as they were Sunday. Joey Diamond, too, got back on the ice; he took the first half of practice in a no-contact jersey. Both of them will be […] [Read More]

On two-for-two swaps

on
On for practice today were two newbies, Scooter Vaughan (wearing No. 7 on the helmet) and Matt Lowry (stepping right into Nick Larson’s No. 17, it appeared). A chance to get a look at some new guys while the injured recover, Scott Pellerin said. The obvious question is, why not Larson and Mike Dalhuisen? Part […] [Read More]

Gallant out

on
Brett Gallant is out with a lower-body injury, Scott Pellerin confirmed today. He had missed a day of practice last week, then missed Sunday’s game after playing in the opener Saturday and hasn’t been in practice since. Pellerin said they’ll reevaluate Gallant next week and hope to have a timetable available then. Andrey Pedan will […] [Read More]

ABC: Arcobello/Belcher/Comets

on
After a season in which he played in the AHL All-Star Game and made his NHL debut, Mark Arcobello re-signed with Edmonton, the Oilers announced. He had 68 points in 74 games for Oklahoma City this year and added another 20 in 17 playoff games. Welcome the Utica Comets. And Notre Dame-West Haven announced it […] [Read More]
