So Lowell finally beats the Sound Tigers, snapping a nine-game losing str... what?

Yep, 50-21. Sounds like the Albany lineup was pretty solid compared to Bridgeport's, more AHLers, more regulars. A second straight BST fight against Kinkel, this time by Henley, and he did well, by all accounts. Rourke and Regier were among the scratches. Phil also reports that Nathan Gillies, ex-Tiger, was sent down to South Carolina (ECHL).

Maybe the most interesting number in that whole box score? Attendance.

Apples to oranges, but still: 5,026 in Glens Falls, 4,714 in Bridgeport.

Good game at Harbor Yard. Very impressed with Gervais. I could have sworn he had gotten bigger, and another person agreed with me enough that I mentioned it for first edition. Bruno afterward said actually he had lost 10 pounds over the summer, gotten stronger, tried to be more explosive with his skating. I'll buy it. I also liked Berry, seeing him for the first time. Stay at home, nothing fancy, do his job with some smarts. No PFerraro or Cullen, though both made the trip. Good work by Yashin on the first two goals; nice shot by Hunter on the third, though who hasn't seen that before.*

Finished up second edition, walked up to the press lounge, opened the curtain and looked out onto this: Runner on second, bottom of the 12th, two out, 0-1 count. Foul ball, ball inside, strike three. Good luck to the Fish, who now have a long climb ahead...

*-Wrote "G3) B21" in my notes. Not quite force of habit, but...


  • that was my 1st reaction to the attendance as well! Not a good sign! but we will see what happens in the Barn this year!!
