Partly Sunny: Thursday notes

Scott Pellerin reiterated what he said at the beginning of the week: “(Johan Sundstrom)’s not going to play tomorrow. We’re going to wait a little longer,” he said. “Which is fine. He’s looking good. We’ll keep pushing him and make sure he’s ready next week.” That leaves, as noted yesterday, one extra, with Brett Gallant good to go again.

Had meant to ask yesterday, but did today: They didn’t send any tape on Sunday’s late-game adventures. Not a situation they were happy with, obviously, but they didn’t see anything that measured up to a supplemental-discipline standard, particularly in terms of anyone coming off the bench to start something. (Wondering if a few of those fights might’ve merited an instigator? Maybe.)

No skate tomorrow, so we’ll be here for the usual Albany Liveblog tomorrow night about 5ish.

New Canaan’s Jack Downing is now on a straight ECHL deal rather than the AHL deal he had with Providence, Andrew Miller reported yesterday. The transaction popped up in the afternoon and looked odd, but as the report points out, at least now he’s available for PTOs.

Edit: Trevor Gillies signs with Abbotsford.

Via the CV posse of Bombulie and Cignoli, Harry Zolnierczyk scored a beauty in Wilkes-Barre last night.

Cam Ward’s down with Charlotte for conditioning.

And the AV Club’s TV Roundtable takes on ER’s “Love’s Labor Lost”. Remember watching that in my dorm room. My jaw was still hanging open about five minutes into the 11 p.m. news.
