Comeback win: Belleville postgame

Thanks to Chris Everone and everyone at Bennett Rink for their patience and hospitality as I tried to throw together 10 inches of words mostly off the box; tried to watch the goals, but they had to go home, and I don’t blame them. So haven’t seen much else at this point. Bridgeport killed off an early, full-two-minute five-on-three. It killed a four-on-three soon after it tied the game. It came from two goals down to win. Take those two points and run home.

Parker Wotherspoon has five goals, and he has two two-goal games. Impressive. Good for Eamon McAdam to get himself a win; he’s done well in his three games. They have still not corrected Friday night’s last goal, so as of right now Ben Holmstrom only has one empty-net goal in the past two games. (I am curious, but not curious enough to go look up, who was the last Sound Tiger with empty-netters in back-to-back games.)

Bridgeport is still three back; Springfield came back from its own 2-0 deficit, but Valentin Zykov scored for Charlotte in overtime. The Checkers play Sunday afternoon in Hartford. (Ultimately, Bridgeport will have a game in hand on the second-to-last day of the season, when Charlotte sits out Saturday and the Sound Tigers go to Hershey.)

Elsewhere, Sacred Heart stays alive: Jackson Barliant’s goal 42:19 into overtime sent the Pioneers’ series at RIT to a deciding third game, Sunday night at 7. Austin McIlmurray had tied it with 1:16 left in the third period.

And RIP, David Ogden Stiers.
