Southern CT: Taking over hockey one player at a time

Marathons: Sunday notes

on
It’s nine years since the Sound Tigers last took a lead in a playoff series (Marjamaki 2:11), and in a few minutes, it’ll be nine years since the events related herein. So I’ll ask again, for I guess the 10th time: If you don’t, please wear a seat belt. And I guess I’ll add, as […] [Read More]

Reinhart appears: Thursday notes

on
The Big Club fell behind in the series with a 5-1 loss in Washington in Game 5. Griffin Reinhart made his playoff debut in place of Lubomir Visnovsky; Calvin de Haan left the game in the third, too. They’re playing for their lives on Saturday. Manchester beat Portland 5-2 in their series opener; Sean Backman […] [Read More]

Time flies, seasons change: Syracuse liveblog

on
(One last request: Fake Team Awards balloting ends tonight.) Today is the fifth anniversary of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers’ last playoff win (and 12th of its last series win). Mikko Koskinen beat Braden Holtby in that last victory, Andrew MacDonald scored two power-play goals, Robin Figren had a goal and an assist: Bridgeport beat Hershey […] [Read More]

On Goal: Manchester (2) postgame

on
Edit: Arthur Staple reports Griffin Reinhart is going up to the Islanders. When the game was still sort of in doubt — if it ever truly was — it was the third and fourth lines driving offense. Eberle-Sutter-Markison, Gillies-Sundstrom-Langkow keeping the puck deep. “Listen, the third and fourth lines are giving second and third efforts,” […] [Read More]

Full-tilt: Manchester (1) postgame

on
Well, that was fun. A little bit of everything, from big-time heavyweight bouts (got a kick out of Matt Carkner saying he hadn’t seen Josh Gratton in a while) to crazy near-comebacks (lots of postgame talk about how those bouts got things sparked, “got a little jam back in our step,” Aaron Ness said) to […] [Read More]

Adding Eberle, no suspension, etc: Wednesday notes

on
Bridgeport signed Tanner Eberle to a PTO. He’s played a handful of games with the Allen Americans (ECHL) after finishing up his year in the WHL. A distant cousin to Jordan Eberle, he’s evidently got some edge, and he also put up four points in those five games with Allen, who’s the highest-scoring team in […] [Read More]

Persson out, ATOs in: Friday notes

on
John Persson’s been bothered by an injury for a while, Brent Thompson said, and by the (“mid-to-upper body”) way he talked about it, I’m thinking it could be the injury, yet undisclosed, that kept Persson out most of December after a hit from Oliver Lauridsen in Allentown. “It’s been affecting his play,” Thompson said. “We’ll […] [Read More]
