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]

Homecoming: Springfield pregame

on
From line rushes for Bridgeport’s return home after a couple of weeks away, could be the same lineup as yesterday, or Brett Gallant could get back in for Justin Courtnall (Gallant took the first rush). One to scratch each way. Edit: Courtnall and Gagnon are scratched. Andrey Pedan is coming back up, the team announced; […] [Read More]

Comeback wins: Springfield postgame

on
Coming back from injury Saturday, going back-to-back, Aaron Ness took some good whacks early in Sunday’s game. There was a hard, lateish hit behind the Bridgeport net from Josh Anderson. There was a slash from Brian Gibbons. They both left him looking uncomfortable. “It was a tough game. A lot of things going on there,” […] [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]

Springfield postgame: I mean, come on

on
Seriously. “We had a couple of mistakes on the penalty kill that cost us,” Scott Pellerin said. “It’s going to happen in a game. We had some other opportunities to finish, to get two points; 5.4 seconds away from getting a point? Come on.” No way: That’s what I said. He’s frustrated, and it’s hard […] [Read More]
