From one Golden Boy to another…

Here we are in Binghamton, site of Rick DiPietro’s last AHL game, and Ricky’s an All-Star. Meanwhile, the highest pick to play for Bridgeport since DiPietro gets ready to hit the ice in two hours. Speaking of long contracts, Alex Ovechkin gets 13 years, $124 million. That’s, what, about $123.6 million more than I could […] [Read More]

Liveblogging the morning skate

on
(Just kidding. Although Okposo put on a pretty good move in the little fake shootout, going backhand to forehand…) Jamie Fraser (hip flexor) didn’t skate and appears out for tonight. I may try to do some between-periods bloggin’ tonight, if the timing’s right. Check back. (Or, you know, boot up the RSS reader.) [Read More]

Just another Thursday

So Jeremy Colliton practiced and has been feeling pretty good, so he’s likely to be available tomorrow. Either way, the Elmira boys are being thrown back to the Jackals, leaving the Sound Tigers at 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

He’s in tonight for the Pirates, while Keith will wear his old 27 for Bridgeport. […] [Read More]

There was a time, maybe a month or so ago (no, a little longer, come to think of it), where a few of us put our heads together to try to imagine who’d be Bridgeport’s all-star representative. It wasn’t coming to us. But then the Islanders camped Jeff Tambellini down here, and then Tambellini went […] [Read More]

Newbies

Steve Regier and Jeremy Colliton (sore shoulder, was the initial indication) won’t play tonight, so Bridgeport called to the Coast and got Pierre-Luc Faubert and Brett Pilkington in from Elmira. They have both played in Bridgeport before: For Albany, Dec. 16, the night half the River Rats team was out with Michael Leighton’s Disease. (At […] [Read More]
