Albany liveblog, last day of November edition

Sorry for the delay. Finishing up that “moving” stuff. Sigh. Anyway. You don’t care. Phil should be live any second now, if not already, at AHL Live. (Josh will be, too.) We’ll follow Corey, Pete


Just like last game, Hartford scores early. (Took the Wolf Pack four shifts instead of two.) There, the similarities end. What was the difference? “You’d like to try to play a complete game,” Scott

Ring the bell: Worcester pregame

Forgot to mention last night: Brett Gallant’s two fights give him 52 as a Sound Tiger. That passes Graham Belak for third on the team’s all-time list. Micheal Haley had 65; Eric Godard had 63. If not
