Bridgeport was still missing Brett Gallant this morning, but Ryan Pulock was back on the ice. Mike Halmo could be ready to go: “I think we’re going to try,” Brent Thompson said. “We’re excited to have that leadership back in the lineup. Obviously we’re going to give him some leeway.”
That practice was over before the New York Islanders announced that Kael Mouillierat was coming back down. They’ve got Kyle Okposo coming back tonight to play against the Rangers, as if that game needed any more juice.
No discipline for Colton Gillies.
Stockton last night said that Loic Leduc was coming up to Bridgeport. There’s no immediate sign of him being here, though. Not sure what’s up there.
The Rangers have signed to his entry-level contract some little kid who used to hang around the room in Bridgeport every once in a while. Like I didn’t feel old enough today.
And RIP, Jeff Hale.
