Line realignment: Thursday notes

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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]

Playoff weather: Saturday boxes

on
After getting too much sun at Fairfield, waiting for Prep lacrosse, then waiting for Chaminade, then watching a pretty good but not-good-enough-for-Prep game… An assist for Brock Nelson in a come-from-behind win over Switzerland at the Worlds. (Andrei Kostitsyn got a game’s suspension for a hit on Matt Donovan on Friday.) In that group, a […] [Read More]

Bridgeport 2, Belarus 1: Friday notes

on
Brock Nelson and Colin McDonald both scored (and considering the way Sound Tigers score on their birthdays*, it’s an upset Matt Donovan didn’t get in the act) as the U.S. opened the World Championship with a 6-1 win over host Belarus in Minsk**. Solid start all around. Russia also got off to a good start […] [Read More]

Divisible: Saturday notes

on
The worst thing an Eastern Conference team could do this year appears to be “win its division”. Manchester and Binghamton went away last night, and tonight it was Springfield, blowing a 3-1 lead in a ridiculous first period and falling to Providence 6-3 at the MassMutual Center. Utterly goofy. Before 14 minutes were done, both […] [Read More]

Playoffs elsewhere: Friday games

on
Jonathan Bombulie did up a neat table today: AHL cities’ playoff records since the WBS Penguins’ inception. Though they haven’t won a Calder Cup, the Pens have been in enough and made enough deep runs to be the Connie Macks of the AHL: 14 more wins than Hershey; 23 more losses than Providence. Scroll down […] [Read More]

Silver pounds Sterling?: Tuesday notes

on
Got to be honest. My knowledge of the NBA stops around Eighth Avenue, if it gets that far. So when the Clippers weren’t atrocious the past few years, I’d assumed Donald Sterling was no longer involved. Anyway. Saturday is the Sound Tigers’ annual locker room equipment sale, 10-11:30 a.m.; full- and 20-game-season-ticketholders can show up […] [Read More]
