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]

Game 7, All-Star Game, stolen stuff: Monday notes

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]

Syracuse liveblog, mathematically alive edition

on
It’s ’80s Night in Syracuse, so maybe they throw together a 7-6 game or something like that. We’ll be following Lindsay Kramer Paul among others. 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]
