Gotta punk it

on
(Time-warped to keep it off the front page) As mentioned back here, I usually write some kind of filling-space article (“punk story”) before each playoff game, just in case of overtime. Just because I can, here’s, like, way too many from years past. Some might have run in first edition, I don’t remember… (Many deadlines […] [Read More]

And that's it (till Thursday)

on
Big assist to bus driver Donnie Polek, who pointed out the change at the bench: Pat Bingham last night, and Lane Lambert tonight, running the bench. Dave Baseggio’s reasoning is in the paper tomorrow, and it gave me a lead, because jeez, who wants to write about this kind of game? There’s many decisions to […] [Read More]

Fake Team Awards Not Really Awarded

(News first: apparently yet another NHL debut tonight: Ryan Caldwell. To fill it out: Mass. native Peter Tormey up from Trenton. Heard Papineau might not play, too.)

Late-night update, since I’ve made it a habit: Springfield’s loss to Albany locks the non-playoff finishers […] [Read More]

Bridgeport should have 17 skaters Friday, though, because Mark Lee and Mike Jarmuth were recalled from the eliminated Trenton Titans. — Tacking on a couple of things: –Found another reporter’s blog floating out there: Andrew Ferraro […] [Read More]

Beep…

on
…of course, in six days, when the cavalry arrives and people are going to be talking about these series as tossups… no one’s gonna remember how you got in. Game 1 at Wilkes-Barre, April 20, 7:05 p.m. Hey, remember the playoffs? ——- OK, so now that the evening is all but over, including this nasty […] [Read More]
