Coast Report: Collberg, Nemec back

Sebastian Collberg returned to the Stockton lineup from his two-game injury absence with a goal. Mike Pereira scored the Thunder’s other goal, but Idaho beat the Thunder 3-2 as Jason Bast had a goal and an assist. Meanwhile Mark Nemec was noticeable: two goals, including the winner in OT, for Colorado. [Read More]

Stockton: Collberg injured

Stockton’s postgamer reports that Sebastian Collberg left Friday’s game late: “Collberg left the game after taking a slash to the wrist and a hit to the head and did not return. His status wasn’t known immediately after the game.” The Thunder’s livetweet, about the only other notice I could find in a quick look around […] [Read More]

Killing them: WBS postgame

We are eight days shy of the 10th anniversary — seriously? How the heck — of the seven-second-delay game, in which Greg Cronin let loose on a Wes McCauley no-goal call in his postgame interview, complete with visual aids (the game film). Brent Thompson didn’t break out video on us for this one, so it’s […] [Read More]

It happens: Lehigh Valley postgame

Things happen, like injuries (John Persson is “week to week,” though nothing major, is how Brent Thompson termed it), curious unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties, accidental backhanders short-side. For the most part, Bridgeport’s response all weekend to those was pretty good. “Our response was excellent tonight,” Thompson said. “We didn’t hang our heads. We played hard.” It got […] [Read More]

Without Pulock: Hershey liveblog

No roadie for us, but an extra one for Ryan Pulock, called up this afternoon to make seven defensemen with Travis Hamonic on injured reserve. We’ll hang out here and listen to a game with a suddenly thinned-out Bridgeport defense corps — these things change in a day, don’t they? good thing for versatility — […] [Read More]

Line realignment: Thursday notes

Mike Halmo, as foretold, appears ready to go, and if today’s practice is an indication, his return rearranges the longest-standing combination up front. Halmo was in the spot where John Persson has been, next to C.J. Stretch and Harry Zolnierczyk; John Persson was where Brett Gallant has been, with Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan. Obviously […] [Read More]

Stockton report: Week 2/Monday notes

Our irregular peek across the country… Oct. 24: Alaska 6, Stockton 4 Oct. 25: Stockton 4, Alaska 1 A goal and an assist apiece for Peter Sivak and Adam Phillips on Friday, but Stockton blew a 3-1, second-period lead to lose. Islanders draft pick Jason Gregoire had the Aces’ second goal and an empty-netter. Phillipe […] [Read More]

Stockton notes, Week 1

An irregular, though I hope much more regular than last year, feature peeking across the country… Oct. 17: Bakersfield 3, Stockton 1 Oct. 18: Stockton 4, Bakersfield 3 Oct. 19: Stockton 4, Bakersfield 2 The season opened with a loss on the road, with Bakersfield getting four points from Quinnipiac’s former star twins, Connor and […] [Read More]

6D evidently overrated: Albany Postgame

Fairly sure Griffin Reinhart played more tonight than in his last two NHL games combined. For the second time in three games, a defenseman was missing most of the night (see the pregame post for Aaron Ness’ update; tonight, Andrey Pedan gets the ever-popular interference major/game misconduct for a hit on Stefan Matteau). Then with […] [Read More]

Thunder abates: Stockton eliminated

Stockton took a big lead in the second period tonight hoping to stay alive in its conference semifinal, to get the series back to Bakersfield, to force Game 6. Didn’t happen, thanks in part to an old buddy to a bunch of them from their time here this year. Joel Broda scored the first goal […] [Read More]
