Other Gally / SNOW DAY: Monday notes

Congratulations to Team Newfoundland, which won the Brier on home ice last night. (No, not that Brett Gallant, though this one has complicated my Google searches a time or 50.)

Speaking of Newfoundland, we’re about to get buried in snow like we’re in Labrador. (hold for groans) You may’ve heard. Alan postponed the Coach’s Show for a week. (He also got to play with puppies, and no fair, I wanna play with puppies. Perhaps we get our chance at Pucks and Paws night on Saturday.)

Jason Guarente said on Saturday that Justin Danforth had been good for Reading, and today he says Danforth, who just finished at Sacred Heart, is coming up to Bridgeport. (Speaking of Reading and snow, the Royals’ game tomorrow is already postponed.)

One of the 12 ATOs from 2013-14 came home Sunday (story in Wednesday’s paper, because snow). Another welcomed a baby girl.

Come June 1, Bridgeport’s (current) ECHL affiliate is rebranding as the Kansas City Mavericks.

Kelli Stack is good. (Phil’s not bad, either.) The NWHL playoffs are this week, with the final at Lowell.

High school semifinals this week, at some point (tomorrow’s Division III semis are postponed until Thursday; we’ll see about Wednesday’s DIs). Got Division II tonight: New Fairfield/Immaculate vs. Watertown/Pomperaug in a half hour or so, and then South Windsor plays Guilford later on.

And there was an eight-blankety-blankin’-overtime playoff game in Norway last night. Eric Hornick noticed that one of last year’s Bridgeport ATOs, defenseman Graeme McCormack, played in it.
