Caps closer: Monday notes

on
St. John’s is a game away from moving on after a 5-1 win in Norfolk. That could be Tuesday night. Not that Brad Thiessen’s a slouch, but that John Gibson guy left the Admirals and is off doing some wacky things on the West Coast. Missed a day at the Worlds, but didn’t miss much […] [Read More]

Thunder abates: Stockton eliminated

on
Stockton took a big lead in the second period tonight hoping to stay alive in its conference semifinal, to get the series back to Bakersfield, to force Game 6. Didn’t happen, thanks in part to an old buddy to a bunch of them from their time here this year. Joel Broda scored the first goal […] [Read More]

Playoff weather: Saturday boxes

on
After getting too much sun at Fairfield, waiting for Prep lacrosse, then waiting for Chaminade, then watching a pretty good but not-good-enough-for-Prep game… An assist for Brock Nelson in a come-from-behind win over Switzerland at the Worlds.

Solid start all around. Russia also got off to a good start […] [Read More]

Change in Toronto: Thursday notes

on
The Maple Leafs extended Randy Carlyle’s contract but fired their assistant coaches, former Bridgeport coach Greg Cronin, former Islanders coach Scott Gordon and former New Haven Nighthawks defenseman Dave Farrish. Surely they’ll find landing spots. Texas opened its series with a win against the defending champs. The other two series start Friday, including Providence at […] [Read More]

Change in Manchester: Wednesday notes (updated)

on
For six years, Mark Morris and Scott Pellerin developed players for the Los Angeles Kings, helping them win a Stanley Cup. Pellerin came here two years ago, and the Monarchs won a division title this year. And right now they’re both out of a job. The Monarchs and Kings announced Morris won’t be back next […] [Read More]
