Tough one

Team toughness, as Jeremy Reich said, goes beyond fighting. It’s about hitting, and it’s about sticking up for each other. Consider that accomplished in the first period.

And then comes the second, and a goal early with Jaffray lost all alone down low, and a goal in the final seconds, apparently a bad-luck carom off a skate and in.

And then after they tie it again comes the instant replay. Same guy, same traffic, same net. Just a little earlier.

Heh. Well, here comes Hershey.


Capuano said he expected to get Tomas Marcinko back into the lineup in the next couple of games. He’s played only one of the past seven.

Prescout. Even if you get up pretty early in the morning, you can’t beat Hershey.

The Sound Tigers’ push for TeamBrent is getting into gear. Players are scheduled to shave their heads March 6.

Ryan Vesce hadn’t played in Worcester since December (groin). What’s he do in his comeback? Two goals.

So first Norfolk named Jim Johnson an assistant, ending a stretch where the Admirals were dominant with him in charge. They reportedly offered Wes Walz a chance to take over Norfolk; he got fired instead. So Leigh Mendelson ran the Admirals’ bench tonight in Binghamton, Mike Sharp reports. (And speaking of, follow @SharpOnTheSens on Twitter.) The permanent solution? Uncertain at the moment.

And RIP, Mosi Tatupu.
