Another foggy day at Harbor Yard. (Between drills, one player yelled “where is everybody?!?!”) Temperature’s down a bit from yesterday, but the humidity’s still at 78 percent. “We’ve got great guys working on it,” Brent Thompson said. He grinned. “It makes it more fun. It’s fun to play in the fog. Half of our guys play in a fog most of their lives.”
Basically the same array. Matt Gaudreau was an extra on the Eansor-Fritz-Bernier line today instead of the Jones-Holmstroms line.
Adam Pelech had three assists last night in the Islanders’ win. He had no three-point nights here, but he had three two-assist Sound Tigers games: Dec. 5, 2014, at Hershey; Dec. 27, 2015, vs. Providence; and Nov. 2, 2016, vs. Albany.
Worcester plays its third game tonight in Colorado. Games Friday and Saturday before coming home to play Tuesday night. (After that, its next game that isn’t at home or at Manchester is Nov. 22.)
Off the transactions, a new-look Wolf Pack waiting Friday at the Civic Center. Adam Cracknell cleared waivers and was sent to Hartford. Defenseman Tony DeAngelo was also sent down, with Boo Nieves called up to the Rangers. Wilkes-Barre’s new second goalie is Colin Stevens, who won Union its NCAA championship.
Anders Nilsson has two shutouts already.
