Can’t believe they didn’t take Rollie Melanson
In Christopher Gibson’s absence,
Glenn Healy Ron Scott Stephon Williams gets the start, and Parker Milner (in 1, with his usual 30 maybe still Berubed?) backs up.
Same lineup as last night was expected as the Sound Tigers try to end a five-game home winless streak tonight after they ended a five-overall skid last night. But then Bracken Kearns went off just before warmup; didn’t catch if that was an equipment issue or not. If he’s good, he’ll be where he usually is, so I left him there for the moment; Jesse Root, the extra forward for warmup today, rushed there instead. Edit: Told Kearns is sick. He’s scratched.
Bridgeport’s wearing blue after it wore white last night out in Allentown.
F: Whitney (A)-(Kearns (A)-scratch)-Collberg
D: Cross (C)-Youds
R: Hersey. L: Colby, Simeon.
Bridgeport scratches (believed healthy unless noted): Johnston (lower body), Quine (lower body), Carkner, Leduc, and one more (Kearns (sick)).
