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]

Hospitality: Friday playoff wrapup (updated)

on
There were games in every series but Texas-OKC on Friday night. And a few went to overtime, on the 10th anniversary of the last Game 7 played in Bridgeport, the last time the Sound Tigers had a playoff series end at home. And among those games: One involving the team that won that game 10 […] [Read More]

Stockton sweeps: Wednesday notes

on
Without the injured Andrey Pedan (for the second night in a row), Jeremy Langlois and Alan Quine, Stockton finished off a sweep anyway, coming from behind in the third period to beat Ontario 2-1 Wednesday night. Nick Tremblay*, acquired from Oklahoma City in a February deal for Greg Miller, scored the game-winner, and both Marc […] [Read More]
