Time flies, seasons change: Syracuse liveblog

(One last request: Fake Team Awards balloting ends tonight.) Today is the fifth anniversary of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers’ last playoff win (and 12th of its last series win). Mikko Koskinen beat Braden Holtby in that last victory, Andrew MacDonald scored two power-play goals, Robin Figren had a goal and an assist: Bridgeport beat Hershey […] [Read More]

Crunch time: Syracuse liveblog

on
(But wouldn’t that header work better if) (Yes. Leave it alone.) We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer, Paul among others. We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). This should be the box (Voss, Kaval/Oliver, Trempe). Here’s the Manchester game as the Monarchs chase the Kilpatrick Trophy. If everything breaks right, they could clinch it […] [Read More]

Sunny day: Syracuse postgame

Stephon Williams stole the show — I mean, that diving glove save on Matthew Peca is gonna stand out a little — but Johan Sundstrom getting the winner, man… “Listen, he definitely deserved it, with all the chances he’s had all year,” Brent Thompson said. “He’s done a great job for us on the penalty […] [Read More]

But we’re fond of magic numbers in this space, so… Bridgeport will finish last in the […] [Read More]

We’ll be listening to Dan D’Uva (audio / pay-per-view). The box should be here (Garrett Rank/Tim Kotyra, Brian Oliver), and this should be Binghamton-WBS. Was asked on Twitter about the […] [Read More]

Not confusing effort with achievement: Sunday postgame

on
There is none of that in the Bridgeport room. If you want to take the positives from two games in which they outshot and outchanced their opponents (the power play figures are the smallest part of that), there’s that. But… Well, from the initial “couple of games of competing better” question, Thompson (with his team […] [Read More]

Syracuse pregame

No Sebastian Collberg today — healthy — so Scooter Vaughan gets back in. Several rearrangements, including Johan Sundstrom going back to the middle, but that looks like the only in-and-out change aside from the change in net, which Brent Thompson told us about last night. Syracuse ran all seven defensemen and I missed their first […] [Read More]
