Game 7, ongoing

on
Thanks to all you guys for your kind words, but there’s someone who deserves ‘em more. Jeremy Colliton said nothing was wrong last night, but you could tell something was. He’s had a death in the family, lost a grandparent, and our condolences go out to him and his. Might throw some in-game thoughts here, […] [Read More]

Day to day (upper body)

1) I hate (deleted) deer.* 2) Going to that game tonight, for reasons having absolutely nothing to do with the game or its result, wasn’t the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but it might come close. 3) In print for Game 7, you are in the very capable hands of Chris Elsberry. But let’s bury […] [Read More]

One-goal games

on
Up here in the boondocks, the Bridgeport black aces were in the suite next to us. Between regulation and OT, as I went to the back of the box to send the punk story*, I caught Justin Papineau’s eye. Wide eyes on one side, long exhale on the other. This was some game for Bridgeport. […] [Read More]

Smashed! Blocked!

Delayed posting

on
It’s like a delayed penalty, but to no one’s advantage. You’ve probably read Tuesday’s paper before you read this, but… Papineau supposedly is feeling better. Rourke skated early Monday and was feeling better, too. Day to day, of course. O’Marra was hopeful of being back. One interesting thing I had confirmed Monday, which makes sense […] [Read More]

Not a road game

on
Well, at least it was the shortest overtime game in Bridgeport Sound Tigers playoff history. More power to Kenny Corupe, who didn’t look like he had a chance to get the puck to Matt Hussey, and more importantly who Harlan Pratt didn’t think he had a chance to get the puck to Matt Hussey. Corupe […] [Read More]

Two down?

on
Every line is clicking for Bridgeport. Every pair? Clicking. The power play? Good enough. The penalty kill? Incredible. Wade Dubielewicz? Nothing further need be said. This is as well as I’ve seen this Sound Tigers team play this year, and maybe as well as a Sound Tigers team has played since The Unbeaten Streak in […] [Read More]

Bonus bonus bonus hockey

Edmonton-Detroit going to double OT on OLN… Wolf Pack-Monarchs going to double OT on the ‘net… Grand Rapids-Toronto in double OT already, keep hitting refresh… Have I used the “Most wonderful time of the year” line yet? (I should probably have dinner soon, too…) (EDIT: Is anyone B2′ing the Hartford-Manch game? I thought I heard […] [Read More]
