The last game in these blue sweaters, under this name for the 2000 Calder Cup champions. For whatever it’s worth, a new era begins tomorrow. Tonight, Bridgeport sends them out.
Still a shame they didn’t meet in the ’02 playoffs. Maybe someday it’ll be Connecticut vs. Bridgeport in the playoffs*.
Brandon Svendsen gets moved up into Jon Sim’s spot with Bailey and Rakhshani; Tony Romano gets a shift to the wing to play with Colliton and Blight; Ullstrom gets back in Romano’s centerman’s spot.
Hartford has one to scratch. They sent all seven defensemen.
F: Zuccarello-Kennedy (A)-Weise
D: Redden (A)-Nightingale
R: Cozzan. L: Cooke, Colby.
