Captain hurting: Thursday notes

on
Was told Aaron Ness took a puck to the face in practice this morning and missed the rest to get medical attention. Brent Thompson didn’t have initial word as he left Wonderland this morning. Brett Gallant also remains out. (That’s about all of practice I caught, unfortunately: Fun with leaky water heaters. UI told me […] [Read More]

In 3D? Tuesday notes

on
One of those remarkable mornings when you’ve almost got more defensemen than forwards. With Sebastian Collberg and Mike Halmo in red still, Bridgeport had 12 forwards on the ice. Colton Gillies was still feeling it but back in action; Chris Langkow is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and Justin Courtnall is sick. There were nine […] [Read More]

Two goalies/Arcobello moves again: Wednesday notes

on
Kevin Poulin appears set for a full workload, or at least to participate in a full weekend: Bridgeport sent Kent Simpson back to Stockton. Team otherwise looked as it did yesterday. Mark Arcobello moves on again: Claimed by Arizona. There was a small NHL deal that went down at about the same time, so you […] [Read More]

Portland liveblog (yes, Portland)

on
They’re back downtown, though we’re not. We’ll be listening to Jeff Mannix (audio / video) and following Chris Roy, Paul, Jeff and the Pirates. The box should be here. Elsewhere: Stockton appears a step closer to the AHL and a sale to the Flames. Todd Bertuzzi will be a Binghamton Senator on a PTO. (Bruce […] [Read More]

Got away late: Worcester postgame

on
In more ways than one, this game got away late from Bridgeport. Late in the game, three Worcester goals. Late in the first two periods, Worcester goals. “Sometimes you take one step back to take two forward,” Brent Thompson said. “It was one of those nights where we weren’t dialed in the way we needed […] [Read More]

Coast Report: Collberg, Nemec back

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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

on
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]
