Preseason roadie

The Sound Tigers wouldn’t have played exhibition games again this year if not for the lockout. But with that reality up top, they’ve announced two preseason games, both on the road.

They’ll face Providence on Thursday, Oct. 4, at New England Sports Center in Marlboro(ugh), Mass., at 7:05. (The NESC just about overlooks the junction of I-290, up from Worcester, with I-495, if you’re looking for your bearings.) The next night, they’ll meet Manchester at 6 at St. Anselm College (alma mater of one Hubert McDonough). The college, including Sullivan Arena, appears to be just over the border into Goffstown, N.H.

Ticket information for the Oct. 4 game is on the Sound Tigers’ release. Manchester will admit at the door but is asking for a donation to the Monarchs Care Foundation.
