Deadline day ’16: the liveblog

Might as well start this post now, because the Bears have had some changes tonight. Washington made two deals: The Caps acquired Hartford’s captain, Ryan Bourque, reuniting him with Chris, in exchange

Ludwig up, others day to day: Thursday notes

Bridgeport practiced this morning without Mike Halmo, who Brent Thompson reported as not feeling well. They’ll see how he is for Friday’s game in Providence against the Bruins, who’ve got Frankie

“Is it… is it Saturday?” – Wednesday notes

Sound Tigers didn’t skate today. As is traditional when that call is made late, I found out in the Wonderland parking lot. (Frinkiac’s 7F09 archive seems off; can’t get the above Krusty line with the
