St. John’s

Replay, scoreboard

There’s one crazy moment in the middle — darn, almost right in the middle — of regulation to talk about, but the other crazy moments are mostly saves. Tyler Beskorowany made a ton of them. Shake your head at a few of them. Chris Langkow passing up a shot in the slot, feeding Scooter Vaughan […] [Read More]

Catch me up: St. John’s pregame

Back after a few days’ absence. Catching up on the new-look team. The two new guys from Nebraska Omaha both took warmup, but Brock Montpetit stood pretty much in place with the centermen as everyone else rushed for Bridgeport. Riley Wetmore appears to get back in, and Ryan Walters appears to make his pro debut […] [Read More]

Parry Sound, Owen Sound: Bah, St. John’s 2 liveblog

About 13 years ago, I wrote something for a franchise preview about how great it’d be to have people all over see “Bridgeport” in AHL standings, know where it was… @IceCapsAHL It's just "Tigers" "Bridgeport Sound" is the name of their town…otherwise you'd have call IceCaps the "John's IceCaps" #cmon — Dee Cee (@ontherawk) March […] [Read More]

If ‘if’ was a horse: St. John’s postgame

The Sound Tigers could’ve been up 2-0 in the first three minutes. Seriously. Joey Martin had a point-blank shot stopped. Scooter Vaughan was stopped on a two-on-one with Brett Gallant; Robin Short thought maybe off the shaft of Michael Hutchinson’s goal stick. And then Bridgeport took five penalties in the first period, the IceCaps took […] [Read More]

Links from away: St. John’s pregame 1

As noted, out of touch for tonight’s Sound Tigers game in St. John’s. It’s bad enough not actually being in St. John’s. Anyway. You’ve got AHL Live for video and possibly audio, depending on how things set up, but in past years we’ve also gotten a stream here, with the bonus of local music; not […] [Read More]

That’s a killer

Have spilled a lot of words the last little while on the PK and what it has done. It was utterly brilliant in the first period, three chances killed with a short-handed goal of its own. Then the IceCaps kept the puck in deep for almost two minutes, kept three of the four penalty killers […] [Read More]


It’s Parker Milner’s AHL debut today, a day shy of 22 months since the St. John’s IceCaps played here last. And not one of the 20 Bridgeport players that night will play today for the Sound Tigers. But one will be on the other side. (Could be two, but Scott Howes drew back in that […] [Read More]

Killed off

Tonight’s game, a 4-3 shootout loss to St. John’s, simplified? “Obviously,” Brent Thompson said, “our penalty kill was garbage tonight.” Well, that was easy. …. The Thompson quote could just as easily have been “our five-on-three didn’t score. Their power play did.” After that spurt a couple of weeks ago, the power play is 2-for-25 […] [Read More]

IceCaps, once more

Back home for the last time before the break, the Sound Tigers run out lines pretty much as they did all week. The IceCaps, with a 14-2-2-1 road record, got Cormier and Gagnon back from the Jets today. They have one to scratch, but indications are that it’s Eric O’Dell. Edit: It is. BRIDGEPORT F: […] [Read More]

Playing 60, or seven, or in between

There’s that first 18 minutes, where the IceCaps took advantage of every hole the Sound Tigers gave them and built a lead. There’s the next seven, where Bridgeport caught a break that got them going and tied it while a former NHL goalie stayed down. Then there’s two minutes in the third where it was […] [Read More]
