"The Hansons."

on
There was much comment on the fourth line that Bridgeport threw out there this morning: Brennan-Haley-Morency. Imagine that wrecking crew coming out for a draw. The less-edgy other lines: Bentivoglio-Smith-Okposo; Regier-Walter-Jackman; Pitton-Desrochers-Keith. Sounds like Morency will indeed be available. Bookkeeping: Scott Ford is now on his second 25-game PTO; the first one expired. Interesting bit […] [Read More]

Everything old is new again

on
Mike Mastovich in Johnstown says Jean Desrochers is coming back up for the weekend. Going Cronin-Era (well, actually, after the Northeastern announcement, but before it was over) for this one. Desrochers is 18-18-36 in 44 for da Chiefs. Edit Thursday, 3 p.m. – Awesome old-school sweaterage here. [Read More]

One in, one out

on
While Tim Jackman skated today — and Pascal Morency may be closer than I thought, day-to-day, in fact — the Sound Tigers sent Jeremy Colliton up to the Island and received Kip Brennan back. Bentivoglio does indeed appear good to go. Now, how do you sort out those lines? Don’t answer yet. They may try […] [Read More]

Super-other-thing/Obligatory relevance

on
Obligatory relevance first: The Isles say Mike Sillinger is out three weeks, which sure makes it look like at least one of those call-ups is long-term. Sounds like nothing else would come down today, though crazier things have happened. We’ll see how the Big Club gets through tomorrow’s Anaheim game. The Tigers have tomorrow off. […] [Read More]

Three out

on
The team has a split practice this morning; the forwards just came off, and the defensemen are going on. Missing: Tambellini, Nielsen and Brennan; appears they’re going up. The other 10, including Bentivoglio and Morency, took the twirl. (Smith-Keith-Okposo; Pitton-Walter-Regier; Bentivoglio-Colliton-Haley-Morency.) Jackman is apparently here but sick. Rumor is there could be more to come, […] [Read More]

What just happened this month?

on
“Eli’s comin’ and the cards say ‘broken heart’…” –Laura Nyro I have two things to retract tonight. 1) My Counterfactual Fun from two years ago is hereby rescinded. 2) These Jints are that good. Wow. [Read More]

Between-games chatter

on
No word on moves (though it sounds like some will come; nothing official yet). Only game in the ‘Merican League is Providence’s five-goal-third win over Worcester. An alleged 3,621 then surely rushed home to turn on their televisions. Our buddy Phil Janack up in Schenectady has a new blog going. The Gazette‘s Web presence is […] [Read More]
