So we’ve reached the “drive to work in the dark” segment of the schedule. Hope Thanksgiving was good for you. (Got a good game out of it, though I confess I was envious of the folks who got a 44-0 tilt and were filed before I left West Haven.)
Back to work after the holiday, Bridgeport rolls mostly as it did the other night, though it looks like Andrew Rowe is in for Travis St. Denis to start the home-and-home with the Penguins. Eamon McAdam for the fourth game in a row on a three-game winning streak.
The Pens get a couple of players back from injury, so Ryan Haggerty’s on the outside tonight. Dea looked to be the odd man out for them in warmup.
F: Verhaeghe-Kearns (A)-Bernier (A)
Rowe – C.Jones – Ho-Sang
F: Simon-Rowney (A)-Kostopoulos
R: T.Koharski, Binda. L: Baker, Briggs.
Bridgeport scratches (believed healthy unless noted): Gibson (lower body), Graham, Boulton, Gionta (lower body), K.Jones (lower body), Markison (lower body), St. Denis.
I’ll be on the Penguins pregame show with Mike O’Brien in 10 minutes or so; audio here.
Our old buddy Paul Ryan in the house, up from Texas for the holiday. He snuck up behind me before the game to spread misinformation about the scratches. It was fun.
