Blowin' in the wind

on
Keepin’ it tight (in hopes of getting home by Monday), so I’m just going to throw a little something up here… Don’t read that the wrong way. They were not happy tonight. An agitated Jeff Tambellini leads the quotes in second edition tomorrow. If you get first edition, check the Web. (And I didn’t even […] [Read More]

What part of "toll-free"…

on
The hotel we’re staying at charges $1.50 for a local call from your room and $2.00 for a toll-free call. You tell me. At least both are cheaper than a high-speed connection. But come on.

Here’s another one of those annoying hypothetical nights where you wonder what would have happened if Bridgeport had popped another one of its scoring chances in early, if it was 3-0 instead of 2-0.

Two down

on
I usually say that five games is a really small sample, and don’t read too, too much into it. At the same time, Bridgeport had never faced more than eight five-on-threes in any single five-game span before. What makes it even worse is there wasn’t one at Hartford: They’ve racked up nine two-man disadvantages in […] [Read More]
