First win: St. John’s Postgame 2

Since winning the very first meeting between the teams in St. John’s — Jeremy Colliton with the overtime goal on Oct. 21, 2011 — Bridgeport was winless in eight against the IceCaps going into Sunday. Since breaking their first long winless streak of the end of last year — a big day for the PTOs […] [Read More]

St. John’s Pregame 2

The captain will be re-evaluated, is the early word out of the Bridgeport dressing room, so the Sound Tigers go without Aaron Ness on defense. Andrey Pedan draws in for him, starting right in that spot with Ryan Pulock. Bridgeport’s line rushes appeared to include Brett Gallant and Alan Quine trading off. See which way […] [Read More]

Outshot, shot down: St. John’s postgame 1

Shots on goal don’t always reflect the flow of a game, the territory of a game, the possession in a game. But for two periods, these kinda did. Actually, so did the third’s, but we digress. Bridgeport led 2-0 though the IceCaps had an edge in shots and in chances, in part because of one […] [Read More]

Starting where you started from: St. John’s pregame

Opening day, coming back to where he established himself in this league, playing the team he helped to the Calder Cup Final: I figured it’s just another game once the puck drops, but was this day special at all for Kael Mouillierat? “Every opening day is special. It doesn’t really matter who you’re playing; you’re […] [Read More]

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]
