Mouillierat goes high wrap (updated)

on
Guess Kael Mouillierat was fine, early warmup departure or no. The AHL tweeted a .gif of his opening the scoring tonight with the ol’ High Wrap, picking the puck up on his stick blade, lacrosse-style whipping it around from Peter Mannino’s right and scoring. Edit, 10:45 p.m.: Should’ve put this on earlier, but the Sound […] [Read More]

College brackets, pro questions: Binghamton pregame

on
Only one little swap had been scheduled for Bridgeport: This is how they were originally supposed to go, but Kael Mouillierat went to the room early. Didn’t catch what was up there. Possible Chris Langkow stays him for him, but we’ll see how the lineup looks. Edit: Mouillierat’s in, so guess it wasn’t anything big. […] [Read More]

Cleaning up: Providence postgame

on
One thing everyone around this team talks about is how hard the players work. Hasn’t been in doubt. The results haven’t followed. They’ve worked to clean things up the whole way here. A lot of them were cleaned up tonight. Goaltending wasn’t bad; Kevin Poulin got beat on a wrister 35 seconds after Andrew Cherniwchan […] [Read More]

Ain’t broke: Providence pregame

on
Except for starting Kevin Poulin, Bridgeport’s lineup remains the same from last night’s win. For Providence, Linus Arnesson, the Bruins’ second-round pick in 2013 and just over from Sweden, makes his North American debut, a bit of a surprise, as Mark Divver noted earlier. One to scratch; looked like Frank Vatrano. It was. BRIDGEPORT F: […] [Read More]

Springfield liveblog

on
Dodging snowflakes (though that’s not the primary reason… really somewhere around quaternary), we’re liveblogging from the living room tonight while the Sound Tigers are in Springfield. We’ll be listening to Chuck Scott on AHL Live (audio/pay-per-view). This should be the box. (T.Koharski, Alarie/Colby, F.Murphy.) We’ll follow Paul among others. Prescout here, Providence against Manchester, whose […] [Read More]

Upper body, day-to-day (again): Thursday notes

on
Harry Zolnierczyk remained out Thursday, and Brent Thompson didn’t sound hopeful he’d be back for the weekend. He’s termed day-to-day (upper body). Brett Gallant has practiced the past couple of days, no-contact. Doubt he’s in this weekend, either. Leni DiCostanzo remained in one net (and killed it at Rebound). Unfortunately for all our hopes of […] [Read More]

Goalies and Pirates: Wednesday notes

on
Bridgeport practiced today without Griffin Reinhart, with his family after his grandfather passed away over the weekend, and Harry Zolnierczyk, who was expected to have an upper-body injury evaluated later today, Brent Thompson said. “(Zolnierczyk) played with it last game,” Thompson said. Things looked relatively similar otherwise except in goal, where Leni DiCostanzo filled in […] [Read More]
