Teen Beat: WBS liveblog

I’ve now missed four Sound Tigers trips to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 13 years. Two were because of blizzards. One was because the car and I kind of got knocked around that one time (pardon me, upper-body, day-to-day, for the past 2,900 days). And tonight. What can you do. What we’ll do is listen to Mike O’Brien […] [Read More]

Philosophy, chemistry, mathematical elimination: Springfield postgame

Addenda to the Spring Fun 102 workbook: Preschool: Count to 60. Fifth grade math: 144:57+58:18=? Ninth grade math: Using CapGeek contract data, an AHL minimum salary of $41,500 ($32,500 for PTOs), this year’s AHL per diem of $67 and a 209-day AHL regular season, estimate what today’s lineup cost. Tenth grade history: Discuss the causes […] [Read More]

Two newcomers: Wednesday notes

The remade Sound Tigers lineup includes Joey Martin, as was made apparent yesterday, and Justin Mercier, a left winger who’d been with Iowa until just a couple of days ago. They skated together today with Joey Diamond, keeping the other lines intact as they were this weekend. Scott Pellerin reiterated what he said yesterday about […] [Read More]

Returns on D / Lokomotiv

Joe Finley and Andrey Pedan appear to be in for the first time in a long time; over three months for Pedan, a day past four for Finley (yet still earlier than most people expected). Marc Cantin and, it appears, Dallas Jackson sit out on defense; Joel Broda makes his Bridgeport debut in the spot […] [Read More]

All-star TV overflow

A couple of local options for AHL All-Star television: The Feb. 12 game vs. Farjestad airs live at 6:30 p.m. on MSG Plus-2 and NESN Plus around here. The skills contest, the night before at the same time, will air on NESN and on MSG Plus. AHL Live will stream both events free of charge, […] [Read More]

Partly Sunny: Thursday notes

Scott Pellerin reiterated what he said at the beginning of the week: “(Johan Sundstrom)’s not going to play tomorrow. We’re going to wait a little longer,” he said. “Which is fine. He’s looking good. We’ll keep pushing him and make sure he’s ready next week.” That leaves, as noted yesterday, one extra, with Brett Gallant […] [Read More]

A few getting closer: Tuesday notes

Riley Wetmore and John Persson both practiced today. Wetmore, a few weeks removed from getting skulled by a puck, said he felt pretty good at the end of it. “We’ll see their conditioning level, see if they’re available for the weekend. They’re not officially available,” Scott Pellerin said. “It depends how they do today, how […] [Read More]

The General Category: Monday notes

We can chuckle about the roughing major, but it struck me too late last night that changing it to a cross-check does have a potential effect down the road. There are two classes of game misconducts; there are stick fouls, boarding and checking-from-behind, and then there’s everything else*. You get a game’s suspension if you […] [Read More]

Denied, vindicated: a shutout in Hartford

Scott Pellerin’s been doing this game a while, and he said the Dov Grumet-Morris stop on Mike Halmo in the second — seriously, remind me to find you some video — was one of the best he’s ever seen, keeping this thing scoreless halfway home. But Bridgeport kept slugging. It did that early on, trading […] [Read More]

Closer, further: Tuesday practice

While Brett Gallant got a little closer to returning, taking about half of today’s practice in a red no-contact jersey, Joe Finley left early. “It’s a minor thing that he’s not 100 percent,” Scott Pellerin said. “It was hurting him while he was on the ice, so we thought he’d take it easy.” He’ll see […] [Read More]
