Wrapping Sunday/state of the league Monday notes

Links, some delayed for technical reasons, from last night: Sean Backman credited Mike Stothers’ faith in his offensive game as a big factor in recapturing it. (Stothers was money.) Catching up,

Backman’s an all-star / D switch: Tuesday notes

The AHL announced its changes to the all-star rosters, and they add Sean Backman, ex-Sound Tiger, Greenwich’s own, to the Pacific Division crew. Backman’s leading Ontario at 10-21-31, a tiebreaker

Defense swap / Arcobello player of the week: Monday bits

No ice today for the Sound Tigers, but they made a move, sending Jesse Graham down to Missouri and calling up Kane Lafranchise. Graham had seemed to be putting things together in mid-December but had

Gritty, gutty: Providence postgame

First word out of Brent Thompson’s mouth was ‘gutsy’. Not bad. Particularly late, it was plenty of Pelech-Mayfield against Alexander Khokhlachev as usual. It was also lots of Florek-Holmstrom-Halmo.

Disciplined victory: Lehigh Valley postgame

They pulled this one out behind Christopher Gibson playing yet another excellent game and a solid-enough penalty kill until the very last (literal) second. And, well, it’s a win. Been a while. “I
