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]

Two to go: Adirondack liveblog

on
Last call, before we get to tonight: Fake Team Awards voting remains open until 11 tonight. Both awards can still be determined. The Phantoms wrap up their time in Glens Falls tonight, though there’s a lot to be determined about whether there’ll be someone replacing them next year (a lot to be determined everywhere, as […] [Read More]

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]
