Friday statistical companion: youth, etc.

on
Stats post to go with Friday’s story. You’re warned. My favorite part of the whole Dennis Green “The Bears are who we thought they were” rant from 2006 was that I read it before I saw it. And that I misread it before I saw it. “You want to crown ‘em, then crown their (behind).” […] [Read More]

Add one to the list: Thursday notes

on
No Chris Bruton this weekend; still not well from his upper-body injury, Scott Pellerin said, so he’ll skip the trip with the team to Lewiston and Springfield. The PK proceeds without him and, as it has for a month, without Johan Sundstrom, but he’s a step closer; he’ll go on the trip, though he remains […] [Read More]

Midweek practice update

on
Two of yesterday’s three missing men returned, Chris Langkow to the spot he manned Sunday, Scott Pellerin to his spot in charge. (Eric Boguniecki departed early after taking a puck to the head; hopefully feeling better.) But Chris Bruton remained out. Pellerin reiterated the “upper-body, day-to-day” we were told yesterday in his absence. Johan Sundstrom […] [Read More]

Snow day/Thunder Bay: Tuesday notes

on
Edit: The AHL announced a one-game suspension for Hershey’s Ryan Stoa for slew-footing Mike Halmo on Saturday. Spirited practice at Harbor Yard as the snow began flying. It was missing the top two penalty-kill forwards, Chrises Langkow and Bruton (reported personal and upper-body-day-to-day, respectively), as well as Scott Pellerin (family). Andrey Pedan and Johan Sundstrom […] [Read More]

Unboxed: Hartford postgame

on
Completely different goaltending tandem for the Pack this week, which could affect things. Not so much, though there’s not as much to pin on David LeNeveu as there was on the tandem that’s now in the Coast from last week. Bridgeport just went and set the rested team on its heels for the last 40 […] [Read More]

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]
