Back at it, 7-game win streak edition: Tuesday notes

They rolled five lines today in practice, a spirited one with talk about keeping focus. (If you worried about complacency, Brent Thompson vocally raged against it at least once.) Tanner Fritz was back on the ice, skating with Eric Boulton and Colin Markison.

Same group otherwise. Thompson said they’re hopeful Patrick Cullity will be able to make the Toronto-Rochester-Utica trip next weekend after the trade deadline. He said he had nothing new on Steve Bernier or Christopher Gibson.

Reminder that tonight is Alan’s coach’s show at Vazzy’s at 7. Scheduled special guest: Ben Holmstrom, who had a GoPro strapped to his helmet today for a sponsor’s video promo.

You could call Bridgeport the hottest team in the AHL. Of course, there are rumors about a “Western” Conference…

Beautiful (hat tip: our bud Tom).

And cows running for freedom in Queens, and even a Nebraska senator weighing in.
