Gibson up: Wednesday notes

It was not quite the only reason I got out of bed this time, but for the second time already this season, I went to Harbor Yard looking to see if Christopher Gibson was there. This time, even from

Advance and survive: Tuesday notes

One of those hard-skating, get-back-to-work practices this morning at Wonderland. It had pucks; it wasn’t even as long as it might have been. But it was at a very high tempo. Brent Thompson said he

Survive and advance: Providence postgame

No one murdered anyone, apparently. Try again tomorrow. ….. And we’ll see how literally we mean that last word. Kind of game that gets days off canceled. “Consistency’s a big thing,” Brent Thompson

Blue Destiny: Tuesday notes

Team was split in half this morning for a mini-tournament of small-area games. (Blue won, if you had a wager.) So there were no true lines nor pairs rolling out there. Missing, though: Scott Eansor,
