Hospitality: Friday playoff wrapup (updated)

on
There were games in every series but Texas-OKC on Friday night. And a few went to overtime, on the 10th anniversary of the last Game 7 played in Bridgeport, the last time the Sound Tigers had a playoff series end at home. And among those games: One involving the team that won that game 10 […] [Read More]

Stockton sweeps: Wednesday notes

Wrapper’s delight: Quotes, contracts, notes, etc.

Been a while since I’d seen the barn without the ice in and nothing else going on, just the bare floor. Know I’ve never seen that when they’d just played a road game 36 hours earlier. A few guys were on their way home, as we said, Saturday night and Sunday. A few more hit […] [Read More]

Last time to see some of them in these colors, or at least with that crest. But it’s that time of […] [Read More]

Splitting the vote: Fake Team Awards IX

on
Thanks to the electorate, increased over last year, which produced a couple of very close votes. I was worried for a while that one award would split three ways. It didn’t, but barely. Fan Favorite goes to Justin Johnson, by a vote over Brett Gallant and Scooter Vaughan. All good guys — team full of […] [Read More]

Two to go: Adirondack liveblog

on
Last call, before we get to tonight: Fake Team Awards voting remains open until 11 tonight. Both awards can still be determined. The Phantoms wrap up their time in Glens Falls tonight, though there’s a lot to be determined about whether there’ll be someone replacing them next year (a lot to be determined everywhere, as […] [Read More]
