Springfield

Coming back, both sides edition: Springfield postgame

on
As the kids roll in (and maybe start rolling in in earnest), holdovers like Mike Halmo have their roles to play, getting the top-six minutes, and in particular in Halmo’s case, working his way back from missing much of the year. “I think I’m just finally getting back in game shape,” Halmo said. “A lot […] [Read More]

Spring (-field pregame) Fun 502

on
I’ll have more when I wake up. And my work email password gets reset. One of those mornings. Similar lineup to Sunday’s for Bridgeport (identical to yesterday’s practice, which was convenient for typing). Springfield has one to scratch; looked like Monardo (it is). Rick Pinkston makes his pro debut out of Dartmouth. BRIDGEPORT F: Persson-Mouillierat […] [Read More]

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]
