Pack back: Sunday pregame

on
Looks like Scooter Vaughan and Alan Quine return today for Bridgeport, with Andrew Clark and Joey Diamond looking like they’re sitting out (Clark took warmup). A tweak on defense, too, splitting up Ness and Mayfield, which had been the usual pairing both before and after Ness’ recall. Completely different goaltending tandem for the Pack this […] [Read More]

Great American Liveblog: Hershey from afar

on
No Hershey trip for us this year. We’ll be listening to Scott Stuccio (audio / video). We’ll be following Tim Leone, Scott and of course Corey. The box will be here. Hartford has the night off. And while we’re on Hartford and box scores, that Petr Straka match penalty from last night changed again today, […] [Read More]

Missing Binghamton: Friday liveblog

on
Missed the news earlier? Kirill Kabanov plays for MoDo now. Now back to tonight’s regularly scheduled liveblog. Five years ago tonight, I missed a Bridgeport game in Binghamton for the first time. Fritz-Yablonski happened. One Leni DiCostanzo backed up. It was the 300th win in team history. Still haven’t been back. Miss that ol’ barn. […] [Read More]

Kabanov overseas

on
MoDo announced this afternoon that Kirill Kabanov has been loaned over there for the rest of the season. It’s probably a good move for everyone. Kabanov had been a healthy scratch quite a bit, including three of the past six games here, and sure looked like it was headed at least for four of seven […] [Read More]

Moving the puck: Thursday notes

on
They worked a little on the power play Thursday morning at Wonderland. They tried some different ideas, Scott Pellerin said, a little trickier because Eric Boguniecki, who coaches the power play, had a family obligation this morning. But got to admit, it was a little cool to watch Ryan Strome work one side and Pierre-Marc […] [Read More]

Strome down/Wednesday notes (add: Boyd released)

on
Ryan Strome wasn’t walking through that door… until today he was. (Or will be.) The Sound Tigers were wrapping up an interesting practice at Wonderland when news broke that the Islanders sent Strome down. It presumably, in part, clears room to activate Radek Martinek, but Garth Snow told Arthur Staple they want Strome AHL-eligible for […] [Read More]

A few getting closer: Tuesday notes

on
Riley Wetmore and John Persson both practiced today. Wetmore, a few weeks removed from getting skulled by a puck, said he felt pretty good at the end of it. “We’ll see their conditioning level, see if they’re available for the weekend. They’re not officially available,” Scott Pellerin said. “It depends how they do today, how […] [Read More]

Net-front presence: Hartford postgame

on
So thanks to Anders Lee for giving me tonight’s lead last night. All those things Lee talked about last night? They did ‘em today. Good night, everybody. ….. Of course Hartford’s in about as bad a way as Bridgeport has been. But still. “Our team, the way we play, the way we have to play […] [Read More]
