Every second counts: Springfield postgame

Last night’s even-strength unblocked shot attempts in the second period, by my silly “scribble plusses and minuses” method: 17-9 in Providence’s favor. Today’s for Springfield: somewhat ridiculous

“It was the olden days”*: Thunderbirds! pregame

The promos this week tipped me off that tonight’s Treehouse of Horror is the 600th episode of The Simpsons. It’s the 588th home game for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers today, and considering the 12-year

MonsterThunderFalcon: Wednesday notes

Caught up with the local guys on Lake Erie as they started home after Tuesday night’s celebration. Loved the way Brett Gallant and Jaime Sifers talked about each other, the respect they had for each

Playing the full 65: Springfield postgame

Similarity between Sunday and Tuesday: “The third period in common,” Scott Mayfield said. They had a 2-0 lead Sunday and couldn’t hold it: five-on-three and extra-attacker there, three even-strength

Vazzano vs. Vazzano: Springfield pregame

When Arizona called for Niklas Treutle today, Springfield signed Alex Vazzano to a pro tryout. He’s the Trumbull kid, formerly of Fairfield Prep, the University of Vermont, Sacred Heart. And he’s the
