Boulton makes 29: Tuesday notes

Bridgeport usually builds its football teams in the spring, when the multiple amateur tryouts arrive and the dressing room spills out down the hall. But the Sound Tigers are at 29 men right now, including the injured Stephen Gionta and Colin Markison, and now including Eric Boulton.

The veteran arrived in town and was on the ice with the team this morning, skating as a fourth forward on the fifth line (yes, 16 healthy forwards, 18 in all, though Markison’s out a while and Gionta’s return is still unknown). He said he’s feeling good after the lower-body injury in camp and getting himself back into shape.

When he might get in is to be determined: The lineup looked much like it did early in the weekend. Tigers and Devils will be on the ice in less than 24 hours.

The building worked on the ice yesterday; it was reportedly a little better. Obvious cosmetic work, too; spots where the paint had been dug up were retouched.

Nearly got a puck in the press box. Power-play practice, and a puck tipped off a stick and fluttered on a trajectory that would’ve come right in. Hit the front of the suite level instead.

Your daily cuteness overdose, from yesterday on Twitter (and technically from Saturday’s game).

Albany, tomorrow’s opponent, had Vojtech Mozik called up.

Providence signed Chris Porter to a PTO.

And quite a moment for Craig Anderson the other night, a shutout in his first game back after his wife, Nicholle, was diagnosed with cancer.
