Stockton playoff roster/Heat leaving

on
The Stockton Thunder, proud affiliate of the New York Islanders and Bridgeport Sound Tigers, announced their playoff roster. It includes some of each. It has 20 players now (including one in reserve), and the Thunder can add three more over the course of the playoffs from its list of also-eligible players. And that list of […] [Read More]

Execution: Adirondack postgame

on
For the first time in a while, Scott Pellerin sounded disappointed. Still outmanned, still outgunned, but lamenting a few things that could’ve made a difference. “When you get to certain moments in a game,” Pellerin said, “when you have a four-minute power play, a scoring chance in the slot, and miss. You have opportunities to […] [Read More]

Ppd. (foam): Saturday POSTPONED

on
They had the World’s Largest Foam Party here last night, whatever the heck that is*. It was not advised. Foam leaked through the fibreboard, melted the ice and forced the postponement of Saturday’s game to Monday night at 7. Arena staff found the damage when they pulled the boards up, and Cliff Lydiksen and the […] [Read More]

Adirondack liveblog

Second game of the roadie at Adirondack tonight. We’ll be listening to Bob Rotruck (A href=”http://tunein.com/radio/Q1017-s28560/”>audio/video) and following Corey, Diana, Bob and the Phantoms on Twitter. With Michael Grabner back and emergency conditions terminated, the Islanders sent Johan Sundstrom down this afternoon. Wouldn’t imagine he gets to Glens Falls, but we’ll see, as well as […] [Read More]

Playoffs somewhere: Monday notes

on
Bridgeport treated today’s practice a little like a morning skate, Scott Pellerin said, complete with the forwards all wearing orange rather than different colors for different lines. That’s OK. A slew of Sound Tigers weren’t there anymore. Stockton should be loaded up next month. Bridgeport sent Matt Mangene, Jeremy Langlois and Riley Wetmore to the […] [Read More]

Diamond, Quine to Stockton/Wetmore, Brace up

on
Bridgeport has sent Joey Diamond and Alan Quine down to Stockton and called up Adam Brace, acquired about a month ago for Mike Dalhuisen, and Riley Wetmore. The timing seemed more curious to me than the move (though Diamond was in-and-out even now), but Scott Pellerin said there were other factors around the rest of […] [Read More]

Droughts: Worcester postgame

on
If Adirondack keeps Bridgeport scoreless for four minutes Sunday afternoon, the Sound Tigers will be in their longest scoring drought of the livepuck era. They’ve gone 170:59 without a goal after this tonight. The team record overall is 215:58 (2004-05), which is in play Sunday. Gamer’s mostly about discipline, or lack thereof, for the second […] [Read More]

‘Tigers are hot’: Providence postgame

on
Shots were something like 17-3 at one point in the first, all Providence. There are times that doesn’t say much about the territorial game, but tonight, yeah, it did. Totally. The first was the Bruins’, except for Kenny Reiter, who shook off four weeks’ rust after a couple of minutes and was brilliant the rest […] [Read More]

Killers: Adirondack postgame

on
Flow? No. The box at this instant says 14 power plays, but it ignores the Halmo rough in the second as well as the Sundstrom board in the third that made it a five-on-three. So it’s 16* power plays, 10 of them Adirondack’s. That meant lots of work for Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan (who […] [Read More]

Loans and assignments: Thursday notes

on
Between trades, loans and reassignments, it’s been a wacky week or so. The latest came this morning, when Riley Wetmore appeared on the AHL transactions; he skated this morning, then started out for Stockton. Similar reason given as was with most of the other guys who’ve been sent to the Coast this year: He’s got […] [Read More]
