Southern CT: Taking over hockey one player at a time

NC’s Downing to Missouri: late Monday notes

on
A few notes from the afternoon: South Carolina (ECHL) traded New Canaan’s Jack Downing to the (Independence) Missouri Mavericks for a package including former Sound Tigers ATO Guy Leboeuf. Downing had seven points in 16 games for the Stingrays. The ECHL transactions also have Ty Wishart recalled to Binghamton. Not that we’ve got any insight, […] [Read More]

Not bad on the penalty kill: Norfolk postgame

on
It almost looks kinda placid, doesn’t it? Norfolk with 15 shots in the second period despite 11:00 of power-play time: As my grandfather used to say when he’d ask how much something cost, since it didn’t cost him anything, “that’s not bad.” Contained within those four-plus power plays and 11 minutes with 1:26 of five-on-three, […] [Read More]

Off-day bits: Wednesday notes

on
Team got the day off today. Two further days of practice before Saturday’s trip to Albany, then Springfield in town Sunday (with the president across town). Mike Russo says referee Dave Lewis broke his jaw last night in Boston. Fits right in with the Wild. Of course, who isn’t hurt in Boston right now? (Mark […] [Read More]

on
Our irregular peek across the country… Oct. 24: Alaska 6, Stockton 4 Oct. 25: Stockton 4, Alaska 1 A goal and an assist apiece for Peter Sivak and Adam Phillips on Friday, but Stockton blew a 3-1, second-period lead to lose. Islanders draft pick Jason Gregoire had the Aces’ second goal and an empty-netter. Phillipe […] [Read More]

In the meantime, get yourself some quality time with Brian Rogers (audio here or via “listen live” link at the team’s site/pay-per-view). Follow the Telegram’s aces, Brendan McCarthy and Robin Short, and of course Bridgeport and the IceCaps. Tune in […] [Read More]

Thoughts to Ottawa/McDonald on waivers: Wednesday notes

on
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]
