Green lights: Pulock, Thursday notes

on
Cory Conacher and Matt Lashoff were on the ice today with the Sound Tigers as they came back from break, prepared for a (break-wise) second half that’ll need a push to make the playoffs, which seemed so much a given at the start of the year. They may get a little help. May. Eventually. Brent […] [Read More]

Unchanged (for now): Tuesday notes

on
Newbie Matt Lashoff (assigned No. 5, on the AHL site) wasn’t on the ice today at Wonderland, getting his medicals done as Brent Thompson said. So Bridgeport looked exactly the same as it did Saturday. Same lines. Same pairs. Loic Leduc a seventh defenseman. Justin Courtnall with Brett Gallant, Chris Langkow and Scooter Vaughan. Sebastian […] [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]

Break notes

on
Been a little late acknowledging here that the break basically began somewhere between Norfolk and Bridgeport on Sunday morning. (Kevin Poulin got a bit of a Christmas bonus: The Big Club called him up for the night, saying Jaro Halak was getting a maintenance day.) There’s the interesting bit that the Sharks don’t buy the […] [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]

Emotion, passion, effort: Springfield postgame

on
Thompson: "We didn't play with any emotion. We didn't play with any passion. We didn't work hard. It's that simple." #BST — Michael Fornabaio (@fornabaioctp) November 22, 2014 Pretty much. See you tomorrow. …… Perspective: “We’re having trouble playing against those guys for whatever reason,” Colin McDonald said. “One thing I’ve learned in this league, […] [Read More]

Comeback wins: Springfield postgame

on
Coming back from injury Saturday, going back-to-back, Aaron Ness took some good whacks early in Sunday’s game. There was a hard, lateish hit behind the Bridgeport net from Josh Anderson. There was a slash from Brian Gibbons. They both left him looking uncomfortable. “It was a tough game. A lot of things going on there,” […] [Read More]

Taking aim at the A with ‘A’s: end of preseason notes

on
I asked Mike Halmo what the ‘A’ meant to him. He thought I said the aim, meaning for tomorrow, and said “The guys are excited. We’ve been cooped up a while. I think everybody’s ready to play for keeps. … It’s time to show what we can do.” Liked that, but I meant something different: […] [Read More]

Tim Leone meets Jon Landry; good stuff ensues. Darien’s Kevin Sullivan, off an NCAA title with Union, signs with Cincinnati. Ryan Walters’ agent says […] [Read More]
