Order out of chaos

on
You know, some games get chaotic, and all they do is give coaches agita. Some games get chaotic, and they’re the most delightful games you’ve ever watched. This one was the latter. You’ve got 82 shots, crazy rebound goals, crazy penalties (including one right after a goal, leading to another goal), crazy passes (sometimes even […] [Read More]

Missed the trip…

on
…sounds like I didn’t miss much. (Though apparently the second and third were much better than the first, but that first kind of ends things.) Katie Strang in Newsday says Frans Nielsen could play within a week. [Read More]

Whole Lotta 'Chekin Going On

on
Stunned: Chris Russo can say “Dubielewicz” but (still) not “DiPietro.” (But then he called the Caps’ star “Ovchekin.” Close.) It sounded as if Ricky will be on with them later. Captain Mark Wotton skated on his own today and is listed as day-to-day. Otherwise, it’s the same 12-6-2. [Read More]

Midweek stuff

on
Joey MacDonald back, Mike Mole down. Mark Wotton (groin) didn’t skate. The lines looked similar to the weekend’s, but Jack Capuano said they could change. It’s getting toward draft-pick-watch time.

Uni Watch has some old-tymie hockey pics linked out of a book; some neat stuff. (A commenter covers well the “A” in […] [Read More]

Honored winner

Trevor Smith earned himself some etched crystal, named the AHL’s rookie of the month for February. Good to see that Pete Zingoni was back from injury this weekend. And good to see the reference early in Phil Janack’s gamer. [Read More]

Fourth-quarter scores

on
It’s that time of year, when the injured captain (groin) wants to know the out-of-town scores in the middle of the period. “It’s early,” he murmured after seeing a 1-0 Binghamton lead on Wilkes-Barre. (He was right: still fifth place.) It wasn’t pretty (not in the nothing-fancy sense, either) in the second, but Morrison held […] [Read More]
