Catching up: Tuesday notes

Took Tuesday as a chance to catch up on the weekend with Brent Thompson, whose phone wasn’t working up there. He agreed they were a couple of good games for them; he liked the work ethic. I mentioned that Sunday’s seemed to be their best start. “The way we started the game is the way […] [Read More]

St. John’s 2 Sunday liveblog

Quick turnaround (well, for me, anyway). Believe Brian Rogers’ pregame show begins at 2 (audio here or via “listen live” link at the team’s site/pay-per-view). Follow the Telegram’s aces, Brendan McCarthy and Robin Short, and of course Bridgeport and the IceCaps. Here’s Robin’s gamer from last night. Looks like the Caps are short-handed from the […] [Read More]

St. John’s 1 postgame thoughts

Terse thoughts on Bridgeport’s 2-1 shootout loss, ’cause it’s what time? BRIDGEPORT F: Mouillierat (A)-Quine-McDonald Persson-Stretch-Zolnierczyk Halmo (A)-Sundstrom-Collberg Gallant-Langkow-Vaughan D: Ness (C)-Pulock Reinhart-Graham Czuczman-Mayfield G: Poulin Leggio R: McIsaac, Garon. L: Vail, Day. After the first Bridgeport power play, swap Graham and Mayfield. (Though most of the beginning of the first was slightly mixed-and-matched after […] [Read More]

Saturday unliveblog: St. John’s 1

Will be out of touch for Saturday’s game but should be back here Sunday afternoon. In the meantime, get yourself some quality time with Brian Rogers (audio here or via “listen live” link at the team’s site/pay-per-view). Follow the Telegram’s aces, Brendan McCarthy and Robin Short, and of course Bridgeport and the IceCaps. Tune in […] [Read More]

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]
