Waiting: Wednesday notes

Brent Thompson said Ryan Pulock was to be evaluated on Long Island; nothing yet on extent or prognosis until after results come back from that. Meanwhile, same cast as yesterday, with Scooter Vaughan going on defense to fill out four pairs and similar combinations to the weekend. In a cruel coincidence, I had a UConn […] [Read More]

Pulock an all-star

The Sound Tigers’ all-star representative is Ryan Pulock, leading the league, let alone rookies and defensemen, with 10 power-play goals. Now he has three weeks to get healthy and get there. (Wouldn’t be the first time Bridgeport’s rookie all-star defenseman couldn’t go. Heck, wouldn’t be the second. But that’s a ways away.) Pulock is their […] [Read More]

More tomorrow (and later): Tuesday notes

Loic Leduc, with 15 on his helmet, was in town and practicing with the Sound Tigers today. It was a lighter skate, to get them back in the mindset after a day off, Brent Thompson said. Tomorrow, then, probably a little harder. (Today was tough enough for some of us*.) They’re awaiting results of an […] [Read More]

The four-on-fours will be with you: Albany postgame 2

So they start out with two really good shifts, a couple of really good scoring chances, and boom, Joe Whitney flies the zone, Paul Thompson finds him, breakaway, bam, it’s 1-0 Devils, and for crying out loud, is there any “here we go again” going on on the Bridgeport bench? “I don’t think so,” Scott […] [Read More]

Another D out: Albany pregame 2

Griffin Reinhart was on for warmup today after missing a couple of shifts blocking a shot last night. But he didn’t take the line rushes, so it looks as if he’ll sit, Scooter Vaughan will move back to defense in that spot with Aaron Ness. Justin Courtnall and Brett Gallant get into the lineup, with […] [Read More]

Where do you go, Game 33 edition: Albany postgame 1

Was mumbling to myself going downstairs after this one. With a roster like this, even with some of the youth, this wasn’t what we expected at this point of the season, especially after they won 10 of 14 to start. They’ve won five of 19 since, 13 points of 38, to sit in 12th place […] [Read More]

Waiting on a sloppy day: Albany pregame 1

Hopefully the weather holds up OK for everyone. In here, appears to be the same group for Bridgeport except in goal (David Leggio, Start 12) and that one spot on defense, where Ryan Pulock sits out and is expected to be evaluated tonight. Hope to know something more after the game about his prognosis. We’ll […] [Read More]

Pulock out: Providence postgame

On video, Ryan Pulock takes a couple of innocuous-looking bumps on the first shift tonight. One comes from Tyler Randell as he’s moving the puck, with his arms extended; maybe it’s to the arm, maybe even to the stick. If I’m guessing, based on how he looked from a distance, arms steady to his side, […] [Read More]
