Couple of moves

on
AHL transactions have Pitton’s reassignment finally becoming official, with Mole, Kinasewich and Haskins going back to Utah. And Raffi Torres has a torn ACL and will have surgery. Did you see The Simpsons last night? With the Bayeux-Tapestry couch gag and the happy prospector dance at the start? Good stuff. [Read More]

Philly Phlop

on
Did I say it would be good to be here? Ugh. A good first shift, anyway. And then a penalty on the third shift, and then a goal for Philly on the fourth. Bridgeport had chances, but as Newtown’s Own Pete Zingoni said, Philly kept them outside, mostly. Scott Munroe was good, and he got […] [Read More]

Destiny, schmestiny (updated twice now)

This one looked for a few minutes like one where I could just point out yesterday’s post and say, “ditto.” No dice on that one, but then again, a shots disparity like 32-19 sounds like trouble.

It's cold

Ah, having a Tuesday off…. then doing the weekly stuff in one day… Providence’s Pascal Pelletier is the AHL Player of the Month for December. If you like to chew that stuff over: Pelletier was 13-9-22 and plus-12 in 15 games; Tambellini was 13-5-18 (4 PPG, 3 SHG) and plus-2 in 11 games. Tambellini isn’t […] [Read More]

Tigers back at .500

on
By MICHAEL FORNABAIO mfornabaio@ctpost.com BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — When time finally ran out Monday, Steve Regier pumped his fists to the ceiling and raised his stick as if he’d scored a goal. He and his teammates reached a goal, rather than scored one, at the end of a 3-2 win over the Binghamton Senators. Bridgeport won […] [Read More]
