No continuation, another loss: Worcester postgame

on
Biggest difference between this thing and Saturday’s win? “Overall urgency,” Brent Thompson said. “Each one-on-one battle. That was the difference. We didn’t win enough one-on-one battles. We lost D-side positioning.” The Sharks scored two quick goals in the second and didn’t have that lead particularly threatened. There were a few big drives on the power […] [Read More]

Halmo, Mouillierat, Mayfield back

on
Two-thirds of a top line — or, a third of their top six — returns tonight for the Sound Tigers. Mike Halmo’s back from injury; Kael Mouillierat’s back from the NHL. Lengthens the lineup just a tiny bit, no? Scott Mayfield comes back from his six-game suspension, too. The Sharks have one to scratch. First […] [Read More]

Worcester (last trip in) semiliveblog

on
Again otherwise occupied today, though hoping to catch up on tonight’s game relatively early. We’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, you’ve got Phil tonight (audio/pay per view). Follows include Paul, Phil, Eric Lindquist’s in-game (his call is here) and [Read More]

Got away late: Worcester postgame

on
In more ways than one, this game got away late from Bridgeport. Late in the game, three Worcester goals. Late in the first two periods, Worcester goals. “Sometimes you take one step back to take two forward,” Brent Thompson said. “It was one of those nights where we weren’t dialed in the way we needed […] [Read More]

Save your jokes: Worcester pregame

on
YES, both teams are here. Colton Gillies isn’t. John Persson’s not, either. (Upper body, coming and going, for both.) So, with Mike Halmo out long-term, on for warmup are the 19 skaters the Sound Tigers have available. David Leggio gets the start off Saturday’s shutout, with the team up to a 128:26 shutout streak. One […] [Read More]

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]
