Snow day: Monday notes

If that’s the tail end of the storm, I’m glad I missed the big part of it. Slick out there. Partly why I missed the practice part of practice. Word is all is basically as it was, with the re-addition

Seeing how things look tomorrow: Friday notes

Status quo all around, at the moment, apparently: on the lineup, and on the schedule*, too. (The NHL just announced tonight’s Caps-Ducks game, which had already been moved up to 5 p.m., is off.) Edit,

Whitneyless: Portland liveblog (2/2)

This is the 19th time in team history that the Sound Tigers have allowed at least four goals in four games in a row. You probably won’t be surprised to know it’d only happened once in the team’s first

Power failures: Hershey postgame

It’s actually not an overly long time to be without a power-play goal. I mean, yeah, after tonight’s 0-for-3, it’s eight full games without one, part of the reason Hershey whitewashed them 5-0 (Dan

Fighting for it: Hartford postgame

Joe Whitney’s hat trick leads the story in this one, or at least it will in our paper. But some good things happened at the other end, too. Whitney’s second goal started with a beauty of a Ryan Pulock

Sports is shared experiences and whatnot, but yeah, the AHL changes things up so much that when you say “Bridgeport hadn’t won in Hershey in four years,” how much does that mean? The only Sound Tiger

Droughts for a winning team: Hartford pregame

Last night ended the second-longest Bridgeport drought without a shutout, 59 games, 315 days since David Leggio needed all of 19 saves two days after last Christmas to blank a WBS Penguins team that
