Saturday off, not idle

on
Jeremy Colliton, sportin’ the Quebec Nordiques cap, worked out today instead of practicing, but all other hands were on deck for a practice that kept going. No roster moves, though the big club claimed Freddy Meyer, half-price. The guys Bridgeport wants to see scoring for Utah? They scored for Utah last night. Former Sound Tiger […] [Read More]

But it did

on
Heard a bit of “it can’t happen” tonight. “That can’t happen.” “If we want (x), that can’t happen.” They are true, give them that. Turns out the Phantoms didn’t need Brian Boucher, just Ryan Potulny.

Get contributions from the third and fourth lines… That’s a big check. Kinasewich banks one in to start. Morency scores on a breakaway. That’s not bad. The defense does its […] [Read More]
