Shut out (different) loss (same): Springfield postgame

Fran Sypek, former Falcons beat writer for the Republican, understood where I was sitting during this one. He saw some tough years, too, and understands the fun of trying to come up with something

Odd records, one way or the other: Springfield pregame

Bridgeport has lost seven in a row in regulation, two shy of the team record. You know what would end that streak? The bonus round. And I hate to even invoke the thing on a travel day, but if

The Penalties: Norfolk postgame (updated)

A full postgameblog late tonight off the sixth regulation loss in a row and 13th game in a row without a regulation win. With the win, Norfolk moved up to 50 points; Bridgeport remains stuck at 48,

Keeping it interesting: Norfolk pregame

Feb. 22s are crazy. (OK, sometimes*, not always.) Though some of the guys who could make this interesting are suspended, if you missed it earlier. With those two guys out, Bridgeport’s two healthy
