White on White: Providence pregame

It won’t stay this way, but the Bruins’ warmup jerseys are white with black and gold trim. Bridgeport, on the road, is out there in… white.

Anyway, kind of a big game or something. Bridgeport looks basically as expected. The Bruins have a couple of big guns who showed up yesterday from Boston. Jaro Halak goes for 13 in a row. Zane McIntyre hasn’t lost in regulation in the AHL and has only lost in that shootout in Bridgeport.

One to scratch each way. Looked like Markison and Doherty.

F: Verhaeghe-Rowe-Fritz

This should be the box.

Bridgeport scratches (believed healthy unless noted): Gibson (lower body), Cullity (lower body), Graham, Bernier (upper body), Boulton, Markison.

Scoreboard watching (ehh, what the heck): Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at Utica; Lehigh Valley at Springfield (Colin McDonald‘s 700th game, notes Bob Rotruck); Hershey at Hartford.

First of two nights in a row for Bridgeport with linesman Bevan Mills. First of two nights in a row with initials for both linesmen, too. (First of two nights in a row with Stephen Reneau, too. Ryan Hersey tomorrow with him.)
