Notes day

on
Turns out Drew Fata was suspended last night, having to do with the game misconduct the other night. Should be back Friday. Jeremy Colliton got the day off, just to rest. Steve Regier came out late to the cheers of his teammates — actually, they invited him out once their regular practice was done. “Who’s […] [Read More]

What are you doing here?

It began without a bang, that dark night in Providence, but the next night against Binghamton, that’s when Jeff Tambellini’s month began. When he came back from the NHL with that fire and that purpose and that drive. Since that Binghamton game, Tambellini has played 15 games. And in them, he has 17 goals and […] [Read More]

(Bourne’s gear will not be on the bus, because it didn’t make it from Utah. The airline was, Bourne hoped, sending it to Norfolk.) With […] [Read More]

Got to love the fans chanting for a shot. There are times you can understand not shooting, but shots produce chaos, right? […] [Read More]

Three stars

on
Unsung hero: Andy Sertich. As usual on a line with Micheal Haley and the variable, Kip Brennan was out with Andy Sertich, who was in at forward tonight after Tambellini got the call. Sertich plucked the puck away from a defender, put a shot on, and left a rebound for Brennan to roof under the […] [Read More]

Welcome to the Show (double meaning edition)

At last, Jeff Tambellini got the call back up, so the scoring streak stands at nine for now. It’s a crowded press box. Should be fun. [Read More]
