Springfield liveblog

on
Dodging snowflakes (though that’s not the primary reason… really somewhere around quaternary), we’re liveblogging from the living room tonight while the Sound Tigers are in Springfield. We’ll be listening to Chuck Scott on AHL Live (audio/pay-per-view). This should be the box. (T.Koharski, Alarie/Colby, F.Murphy.) We’ll follow Paul among others. Prescout here, Providence against Manchester, whose […] [Read More]

Shut out (different) loss (same): Springfield postgame

on
Fran Sypek, former Falcons beat writer for the Republican, understood where I was sitting during this one. He saw some tough years, too, and understands the fun of trying to come up with something different each night. (Mine today, though planned during the week, was to talk to Jaime Sifers this morning. I figured this […] [Read More]

Odd records, one way or the other: Springfield pregame

on
Bridgeport has lost seven in a row in regulation, two shy of the team record. You know what would end that streak? The bonus round. And I hate to even invoke the thing on a travel day, but if tonight’s game doesn’t go to a shootout, it would tie the team record: 32 games without […] [Read More]

(Another) heartbreaker: Springfield postgame

on
My first “who to talk to” instinct was Colton Gillies. He walked out of the room with a bit of a muffled scream after this one, so I felt like the instinct was going to work out. “Heartbreaking” came up once or twice. “The feeling in the room, at least, is we’re so close,” Gillies […] [Read More]

They’ve had lots of fits since then: Springfield pregame

on
Remember way back yonder in November when we wondered what it was about Springfield that gave Bridgeport fits*? Think at least part of the answer has safely revealed itself: It’s the only good team Bridgeport played in the first month of the season. “Good” might be overstating it a bit, but “current playoff” is accurate: […] [Read More]

Emotion, passion, effort: Springfield postgame

on
Thompson: "We didn't play with any emotion. We didn't play with any passion. We didn't work hard. It's that simple." #BST — Michael Fornabaio (@fornabaioctp) November 22, 2014 Pretty much. See you tomorrow. …… Perspective: “We’re having trouble playing against those guys for whatever reason,” Colin McDonald said. “One thing I’ve learned in this league, […] [Read More]

Carryover, at least from Thursday: Springfield pregame

on
Appears Bridgeport rolls much as it practiced this week, with Griffin Reinhart and Sebastian Collberg coming back from injury and Adam Pelech in as the sixth defenseman (presumably getting PP time). No extras out there for Bridgeport. Looks like Nathan Oystrick makes his season debut for Springfield, and Michael Chaput makes his AHL season debut. […] [Read More]

Down with a fight (eventually): Springfield postgame

on
The gamer is almost exclusively about the last 35 seconds, so I’ll try to dwell on the first 59:25 here after mentioning that Brett Gallant, if nothing somehow changes, has a suspension of two automatic games coming to him, one for the instigator in the last five minutes, one for his third game misconduct (he […] [Read More]

Some reverting, some returning: Springfield pregame

on
Bridgeport goes for its sixth win in a row, which would be its longest streak since the last seven games of February, all regulation-time victories, the last six games of the Olympic break and the first game after. (Things didn’t go so well after that.) Appears they do it with Andrey Pedan. Pedan hasn’t played […] [Read More]

Knock it off: Springfield postgame

on
There was a game, and not a pretty game — well, take it back; not a pretty eight minutes or so — for Bridgeport. But in the years to come, unless the season just goes haywire from here, this is gonna be the day David Leggio dumped the net on a two-on-oh. And we have […] [Read More]
