That’s one/that’s three: Binghamton postgame

When the defensemen take shots at the end of practice, often the guy in front of the net working on his deflections is Kyle Schempp. And they go, a lot of the time, nifty ones, tips up, down, under

Streaky clean: Binghamton pregame

Late development: Michael Dal Colle went back to the dressing room very early in warmup. I was counting Devils heads and didn’t see what, if anything, led to it. It had appeared Kyle Schempp would be

Late break: Hartford pregame

By accident of Christmas timing and the recent three-day Christmas break in the CBA, this’ll be the first time Bridgeport plays on Dec. 23 in 11 years. At least each team today has an assistant coach

Ice in the winter: Springfield liveblog

Chickened out on the drive to Springfield, which surely means clear roads, clear skies and breezy travel for all involved. (Hope so, anyway). The weather sounds ugly tomorrow, too, but above freezing,
