Thoughts and prayers with the people of Ottawa. Jeez. The mundane organizational news broke not long after practice broke up here and possibly did on the Island as well: Colin McDonald has been placed on waivers, presumably to come here if he clears tomorrow at noon. Arthur Staple says the logical should follow: Anders Lee […] [Read More]

Third day, more changes: Springfield pregame

on
Three-in-threes may be slightly mitigated when you’ve got bunches of extra bodies. Bridgeport will utilize most of them against Springfield. Along with them comes a swap of right wingers. Homecoming for Jaime Sifers, the former Fairfield Prep defenseman from Stratford. Both teams have one to scratch. Looked like Justin Courtnall for Bridgeport and former Sound […] [Read More]

Outshot, shot down: St. John’s postgame 1

on
Shots on goal don’t always reflect the flow of a game, the territory of a game, the possession in a game. But for two periods, these kinda did. Actually, so did the third’s, but we digress. Bridgeport led 2-0 though the IceCaps had an edge in shots and in chances, in part because of one […] [Read More]

Sept. 11/Rules tweaks/Thursday notes

Happy to be in New York, my second home, on this day. Remembering all of those who lost their lives 13 years ago #NeverForget — John Persson (@JohnPersson21) September 11, 2014 (We won’t forget. We can’t forget.) ….. The NHL announced some major minor rule changes. Some follow what the AHL already announced about overtimes, […] [Read More]

Day planners due Wednesday: Tuesday notes

on
Schedule. Wednesday. 11 a.m. #wheresmyspycamera.* Over the Boards reported that Tage Thompson, Brent’s son, has committed to UConn. Tage is Class of 2016 for high school, so it’s a couple of years away. Former Fairfield Prepster Will Brophy tweeted the other night that he’s given his commitment to Holy Cross. Tim Leone notes that there’s […] [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]

Catching up: vacations, schedules, notes

Even if you’ve been to the National Air and Space Museum on the Mall in Washington, seriously, get yourself out to Dulles and see the relatively new Udvar-Hazy Center. The grown-up review is that it’s […] [Read More]
