Memory, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton: WBS pregame

on
Memory is strange. I walked in this morning and said I’d go around the corner to the runway to watch the skate. There’s no runway here, though; that’s in Manchester, where there’s a similar hallway and similar bowels. I was surprised this morning to walk in and find only one banner hanging in the rafters […] [Read More]

Gillies signs/Persson skates/Conacher waived

on
Finally, Colton Gillies is getting out of the hotel. His PTO would’ve expired tonight, but Gillies has signed an AHL contract to keep him here the rest of the year. “I can settle in now,” Gillies said after the morning skate. “The people (at the hotel) were great, the staff, but you’re definitely not settled […] [Read More]

Bast down: Thursday notes

on
Calling Peter Sivak up cut down on the number of spots open up front, and the Sound Tigers released Jason Bast from his PTO and sent him back to the ECHL this morning. “I was happy with him,” Brent Thompson said. “He generated some chances in Hershey. You can see he’s got a good shot, […] [Read More]

Sivak, day-to-days, etc.: Wednesday notes

on
Sorry for the delay. Computer problems, another assignment… ah, you don’t care. The newsiest bit, anyway, was that Colton Gillies wasn’t on the ice. Just banged up and day-to-day, Brent Thompson said. Peter Sivak, back up from Stockton, was alongside Johan Sundstrom and Justin Courtnall today. “He’s going to play,” Thompson said of Sivak. “He’s […] [Read More]

Sivak up

on
Stockton reported Peter Sivak called up to Bridgeport this afternoon. Kind of interesting: They were at 13 forwards this morning with John Persson out awhile. Could just be insurance; could be somebody else banged up. We’ll see Wednesday, presumably. [Read More]

Day on, and Game 24/25: Monday notes

on
The expected 20 and 2 (John Persson missing, obviously) this morning in essentially the same array as Sunday. Second time they’ve avoided the traditional day off after the three-in-three to take Tuesday instead (though the first time wasn’t planned, after that rough Springfield-Hartford-Albany weekend; this one was). “Trying to break up the week,” Brent Thompson […] [Read More]

It happens: Lehigh Valley postgame

on
Things happen, like injuries (John Persson is “week to week,” though nothing major, is how Brent Thompson termed it), curious unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties, accidental backhanders short-side. For the most part, Bridgeport’s response all weekend to those was pretty good. “Our response was excellent tonight,” Thompson said. “We didn’t hang our heads. We played hard.” It got […] [Read More]
