Droughts: Worcester postgame

on
If Adirondack keeps Bridgeport scoreless for four minutes Sunday afternoon, the Sound Tigers will be in their longest scoring drought of the livepuck era. They’ve gone 170:59 without a goal after this tonight. The team record overall is 215:58 (2004-05), which is in play Sunday. Gamer’s mostly about discipline, or lack thereof, for the second […] [Read More]

Pereira debuts: Worcester pregame

on
Edit: The Islanders announced they’ve got contract terms with Adam Pelech. He plays on with Erie, and could play for a while. But he’s under contract. It’s ATO season everywhere, and West Haven’s Mike Pereira is going to make his pro debut tonight for the Worcester Sharks. He just finished his senior year at UMass, […] [Read More]

Eight is not happening: Worcester postgame

on
Streak’s over. “It (is objectionable or inadequate),” Matt Donovan said. “Obviously you want to keep that streak going. I felt that was a very winnable game if we showed up the first 40 and played like we did in the third. It was ours to take, those two points.” A rough first two periods; a […] [Read More]

Milestones: Worcester pregame

on
Though Kevin Poulin doesn’t get them there, Bridgeport’s nearing a milestone: If you include the backup goalies and the playoff players, the next new guy to dress for a Sound Tigers game will be No. 400 in team history to wear the sweater during a game. They’re only at 388 who’ve actually played, not counting […] [Read More]

Defend by offending

on
“We got pucks in deep, but they were very efficient breaking the puck out,” Scott Pellerin said. “They were able to hit their low center a lot. We weren’t able to make the adjustment to keep the puck in their zone.” Well, that was easy. See you… …. (We haven’t done that in a while, […] [Read More]

Ring the bell: Worcester pregame

on
Forgot to mention last night: Brett Gallant’s two fights give him 52 as a Sound Tiger. That passes Graham Belak for third on the team’s all-time list. Micheal Haley had 65; Eric Godard had 63. If not for that pesky three-fights-yer-out game misconduct, you’d joke, he might make a run at the leaders tonight. Worcester’s […] [Read More]

Something a little different

on
We’ll look at those five points from Ryan Strome and those four points (or was it five?) (or was it three?) (hey, sheet says four) points from Mike Halmo and seven goals in all and four goals in the second and four power-play goals and what the heck was that?… But Scott Pellerin was looking […] [Read More]

Hats off to Danny: Worcester pregame

on
The Sharks hadn’t had a hat trick in an exceptionally long time before their last game. And sure enough, it’s on the road. So the Sharks handed out some hats tonight, and they’ll celebrate Daniil Tarasov tonight at the renovated DCU Center. Got to love it. Bridgeport’s on the other side of that with a […] [Read More]

(Black) Bear Market

on
The University of Maine fired coach Tim Whitehead on Tuesday, and there’s a quite prominent alumnus of that school running the Sound Tigers’ bench right now. Mike McMahon, or at least a source of his, sees Scott Pellerin as one target (along with Greg Cronin, and that’s Jim Montgomery). Pellerin, reached Wednesday, wouldn’t comment on […] [Read More]

Right where they wanted them

on
Down 2-0 again (15 turnovers, Scott Pellerin said, “we couldn’t make tape-to-tape passes to our guys, but we made great tape-to-tape passes to them”), another comeback, another four goals in a row. This time they even made it five. They traded goals after that but hung on. And right as they were hanging on, we […] [Read More]
