Whose normal: Hartford pregame

With Ryan Strome back up and scoring goals in Florida, with J.F. Berube back up to go on IR (making room for Thomas Hickey to come off, keeping room for Adam Pelech for now), things are back to a little more like Bridgeport normal. Now we’ll see if they’ll play more like they did through the first stretch and less the past couple of games, in which they’ve combined for one goal (by the guy who’s off scoring goals in Florida).

Those practice lines appear to have held; a little different look on defense. One to scratch both ways but looked like Gomes and O’Donnell.

Hartford, stuck in the ridiculous traffic around the region, got here close to 5:30. Took about 1:40 to get here. They’re a little mixed up lines-wise from last night.

Oh, and similar sweaters to the olden days. If you want to do some comparing, Google saves everything.

This should be the box. Corrected link, hopefully.

Bridgeport scratches (believed healthy unless noted): Petrov (broken left foot), Leduc, apparently Gomes

While we’re throwing back, Syracuse is in town already. May be that one Tambellini will be here to see the other.
