Smashed! Blocked!

on
So with newfound respect for Ryan Stone, with a slightly dizzy feeling from rushing to make deadline, with lots of (pick a BPT number) bkd (pick a WBS number) in my game notes, and with a bit more confidence in at least the length being right on my prediction… Bridgeport was happy with the chances […] [Read More]

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

on
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]

Too pooped to pop

on
Dave Baseggio gave the boys the option Friday, and a little more than a third of the horde* exercised it. That didn’t stop a bunch of them, before returning to the hotel after the team meeting, from stopping in the lobby of the Ice Box in Pittston. There’s a pop-a-shot machine, and the gate wasn’t […] [Read More]

True grit

on
You know, I bought into it a little. Not to the extent that it was going to turn the series, but that it was going to be a pain in the neck for Bridgeport. The gritty, gritty Penguins against the slick-and-speedy Sound Tigers. Like I said, a little. WBS is more physical. No doubt there. […] [Read More]

For starters…

No Hamilton, O’Marra, Rourke (or Nasreddine). But tell me if some of these look familiar: F: Bergenheim-Colliton-Nilsson Tambellini-Collins (A)-Comeau Marjamaki-Koalska-Masse Papineau-Regier-Thompson D: Jarrett (A)-Gervais Pettinen (A)-Caldwell Grebeshkov-Pratt [Read More]
