Teen Beat: WBS liveblog

on
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]

False start

on
This isn’t how you want to start, both in the result sense, in the way-things-went sense, and in a way in the this-is-your-first-real-game-together sense. “There are a lot of mixed emotions, honestly,” Scott Pellerin said. “At the beginning of the game I thought they really came at us. You could tell we really didn’t have […] [Read More]

Season 13, Game 1

on
Back to work. One to scratch each way. Looked like Quine for Bridgeport. So semi-remarkably, thanks to a bunch of ATOs and Anders Lee’s signature last year, none of these guys are making their pro debut, though there are seven rookies in. BRIDGEPORT F: Lee-Strome-Diamond Persson-Sundstrom-Bruton (C) Halmo-Wetmore-Kabanov Gallant-Clark-Johnson (Quine-scratch) D: Finley-de Haan (A) Ness […] [Read More]

Coin flips

Can’t fault the defensive effort. Can’t fault the PK. Sure can’t fault the goaltending. They got one. So did Wilkes-Barre. Pretty much how Wilkes-Barre games go, but still. And they haven’t won in six games. (Though technically the losing streak ends, for what that’s worth.) Scott Pellerin tinkered with the top two lines twice, trying […] [Read More]

Finishing up

on
The weekend wraps with the Penguins, as Tom Kostopoulos returns in a WBS sweater for the first time since Mike Therrien complained about Bridgeport holding him in the leadup to the 2004 playoffs. (Paid off.) Looks like more or less the same Bridgeport lineup in the same array as last night, with the possible exception […] [Read More]

Nothing even

on
Over the first two periods tonight, shots at five-on-five were something like 24-5 at even strength. Now, like I said there, it looked like they might’ve shorted Bridgeport a shot or two at the end of the period. But it wasn’t like Bridgeport was giving itself a lot of chances to win. All four goals […] [Read More]

Penguins, Round 3

on
David Ullstrom appears to get an extra day — no indication from anywhere that it’s more than that — so Max MacKay makes his pro debut, with Jason Clark playing his second game. Bridgeport’s lines look basically as they have all week, with one defenseman to scratch. I haven’t the slightest idea if these Wilkes-Barre […] [Read More]

Not today

on
You could probably look at this one a couple of ways. One is simply “Kevin Poulin what the heck.” You come to expect Poulin to stand on his head, not go the other way. Paul Thompson beat him three times, once on a shot he thought he should’ve had, once on a shot where Poulin […] [Read More]

Love for the Penguins

on
Some dude yelled “Sidney Crosby (is objectionable or inadequate)” as the Penguins hit the ice. Yeah, Sid’s not here. Bridgeport tries to keep its good feeling going from last night. The Penguins try to keep their good feeling going from Friday. Something may have to give. (There is the possibility of points for all, but […] [Read More]
