Hockey, Day (KC1): A visit to an Island

on
Called up the blog template on this computer for the first time since the last day of the year. Deleted out all the templates for penalty minutes, top-scoring defensemen, Alan Quine with the most assists since…. Ah well. But hey, kiddie camp, rebirth, new hope and whatnot. Arrived at the gleaming, if bankrupt, Twin Rinks […] [Read More]

Comets hit Barons/adieu, Dave: Wednesday notes

on
Utica completes the final four in the AHL with a 1-0 win over Oklahoma City in Game 7 of the Western Conference semis. Alexandre Grenier scored with 12:49 left in the game, and Jacob Markstrom (in the company of Johnny Bower in the history books, per the AHL) made 35 saves. So that’s it for […] [Read More]

on
There’ll be a Game 7 in the AHL this year: Oklahoma City got goals from Brad Hunt and Ryan Hamilton and 33 saves from Richard Bachman, surviving Sven Baertschi’s late goal to beat Utica 2-1. Game 7 is Wednesday in Utica. David Andrews has called for the youth of the American League to convene in […] [Read More]

Hartford moves on: Friday notes

on
The East Division over the past decade had provided the AHL with Calder Cups for Norfolk and Binghamton and Philadelphia and, of course Hershey; with finals appearances for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Syracuse. And it’s now out of business. The AHL’s new alignment cobbles bits of the East, Northeast and Atlantic into a new Atlantic next year, […] [Read More]

USA to World Semis: Thursday notes

on
Congratulations to Team USA for its 3-1 win over Switzerland. Your reward is another crack for Russia with a ticked-off Alex Ovechkin arriving in town. Never easy. The Americans took care of their business, coming from behind after an early Roman Josi goal with three goals in a row, beginning with Ben Smith and Charlie […] [Read More]

Pens back/RIP, Post legend: Saturday notes

on
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton stayed in their series, getting goals from Bryan Rust and Tom Kostopoulos and survived a late Manchester goal to win Game 3. The Monarchs lead 2-1 with Game 4 on Monday. (Also, thanks to Jeff for pointing out that I gave Hershey too much credit last night. They’re tied with Hartford going to Worcester.) […] [Read More]

Multiple overtimes: Thursday notes

on
Like an hour and a half after Game 1 needed three overtimes, Game 2 was decided in about 45 minutes: Manchester got three points apiece from Jordan Weal, Brian O’Neill and Michael Mersch, and the Monarchs lead the series 2-0 after a 5-2 win tonight. They’ll go to Wilkes-Barre for two or three games. The […] [Read More]

Persson out, ATOs in: Friday notes

on
John Persson’s been bothered by an injury for a while, Brent Thompson said, and by the (“mid-to-upper body”) way he talked about it, I’m thinking it could be the injury, yet undisclosed, that kept Persson out most of December after a hit from Oliver Lauridsen in Allentown. “It’s been affecting his play,” Thompson said. “We’ll […] [Read More]
