Round 2: Late Thursday notes

on
Brett Gallant vs. George Parros tonight. Did a heck of a job. I feel like I could’ve written twice what I wrote on Gallant’s NHL debut (Friday’s paper, would you?). Space allowed what it allowed, so some stuff hit the floor, but one bit I had to share. Brett’s dad was awesome to chat with […] [Read More]

Vaughan re-ups: Thursday notes

on
Scooter Vaughan’s PTO was set to expire this weekend. Good news for him and the Sound Tigers: He’ll be here a lot longer than that. Vaughan signed an AHL deal for next season, earning his way to a contract with a solid second half of the year, moving from defense to forward, staying in the […] [Read More]

Strome all-rookie (Langlois, too)

on
Ryan Strome obviously had a remarkable rookie year for Bridgeport, though you had to wonder whether voters planned to focus on that brilliance in a short period of time (crazy stat in tomorrow’s notebook; meanwhile, despite playing just 37 games, Strome’s still sixth among rookie scorers) or would reward those who’d been in the AHL […] [Read More]

So Brett Gallant’s an NHLer

on
And as someone said afterward, you can never take that away. Talked to a few people for a story that will run later on in the week. But some kind of night: Couple of shot attempts, one on goal, three credited hits, 10 shifts for 6:02, one trip to the box on an attempted fight […] [Read More]

Gallant to The Show

on
Brett Gallant’s an NHLer. Fresh off yesterday’s record-setter, Gallant got the call from the Isles today. After 141 AHL games, the last 140 of them here, he could make his NHL debut tomorrow. Got to be one of the neater call-ups for this team, a guy who came up that first time, we figured, as […] [Read More]

Morals to the story: Hershey postgame

on
Granted, there are no moral victories at this level, but that may’ve been among the more inspirational 5-4 losses around here. Team ATO down 3-0 to the Hershey Bears. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than two against anyone but Adirondack since February. Bridgeport hasn’t scored more than one against a team still alive in the playoff […] [Read More]

Who are these guys: Hershey pregame

on
Matt Watkins, one of the first guys out for warmup for Hershey, was the captain of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at the end of last season. He played with only three guys dressed for Bridgeport tonight. Steve Oleksy only played with three, too, but that’s only because of Chris Langkow, who obviously left and came […] [Read More]

Adirondack liveblog

on
Second game of the roadie at Adirondack tonight. We’ll be listening to Bob Rotruck (A href=”http://tunein.com/radio/Q1017-s28560/”>audio/video) and following Corey, Diana, Bob and the Phantoms on Twitter. With Michael Grabner back and emergency conditions terminated, the Islanders sent Johan Sundstrom down this afternoon. Wouldn’t imagine he gets to Glens Falls, but we’ll see, as well as […] [Read More]
