One way or another, Pellegrim should be putting a premium on getting as much out of Ullstrom as possible.

He's one of the team's most established AHL scorers and should be one of our top three scorers this year. Dunno if that's likely playing with several AHL rookies?

Of course, there's still a lot of hockey to be played and everything from injuries to slumps will force the coach's hands with respect to line combos.

Poulin looked weak tonight.... a couple of those goals he gave up were pretty bad. The goal Nino scored was of a semi break away..... he split the D, crashed the net hard and slipped a back hander through. Looked like a classic power forward.

Shortly after that Nelson almost scored on an identical attempt.

They really need Nilsson back, as well as Kabanov and Ullstrom.

Okay...someone please explain how sundsrom was awarded the first assist on Nelson's goal. The BP website write up states that Nino's shot was blocked and Donovan passed the deflection to Nelson who then scored. A couple of things don't make sense. One, it was a four on four so were there three isles fowards on the ice at the time of the goal. Two, if Nino's shot deflected off of Sundsrom then why was Sundstom given the primary assist and not the secondary assist. Anyone at the game who can clarify how Nelson scored the last goal? I know its not a big deal, but would just like to make sense of what happened the last minute of the game. Thanks.

Oh...much clearer now. Thanks.

Seriously, did Sundstrom actually deserve the primary assist on Nelson's goal at the end of yesterday's game?

Did Sundstrom redirect Donovan's pass to Nelson before Nelson shot the puck and it went in?

Much appreciated.

Not to sound like a D*** but Does it really matter who gets the assist, the team played a less then spirited game and deserved to lose. The defense had numerous breakdowns and Poulin had what could have been the his worst game in 2 years. If Bport is not playing gritty and a grinding style they seem to get lulled to sleep.

When Nino loses the AHL scoring championship by ONE POINT, we'll see how much furious rage Sneekypete exhibits in his ranting posts.

As an aside, I do think Nino will be among the AHL leaders in goals and possibly points this year, assuming he plays in the AHL all year.

I do think the NHLers will pull away, like Eberle, RNL, Hall, B.Schenn (if he can stay healthy) or even a guy like Granlund or Baertschi - but I can see Nino being in that group. He's going to be a good NHLer and this is a good first step for him (though he did things a bit backwards last year - as well all saw)

Highlights are up now on the BST youtube channel....

Wow, Poulin must be getting paid by Thompson because two of the three goals he scored were gimmies by Poulin. Definitely an off night for him.

Nino driving to the net with quick hands and the guy was draped all over him, good stuff. Hamonic tooling Despeus or whatever his name is was fun to watch. Wishart is still slower than a popsicle melting on a sidewalk in Alberta in January. Just a waste of a spot imo. Persson looks strong on his skates, hard to knock down. Nelson's wrister was pretty easy to get off as it doesn't seem like the D took the body on him much, nonetheless it was a strong shot and nice to see him on the scoreboard in back to back games.

Wish they would just show Bridgeport games on NHL center ice I'd pay full price for that!

How much ECHL and AHL have you watched?

Landry is big, skates well, and can pass tape to tape long distances. Sure, he does not always connect, but the liabilities on this D are Wishart, Hill and very young forwards.

JT got screwed out of a goal last year. He would have been a PPG player if they gave it to him.

I don't worry about Strome's wheels, just his size and ability to take a hit in the bigs.
at 6'1" 192 lbs. he's not as small as you make him out to be. He is very close in size to bailey or Nielsen.

Watch him closer, especially when he's in the defensive end without the puck. Watch what he does during the times between when the puck drops and that red light flashes while he stares at the rafters.

He's awful, and if it wasn't for Ty Wishart.... he'd be BP's worst liability on D.

It is pretty funny. A new drinking game perhaps?

From the games I've seen, I've liked Landry. His assist to Nelson in the first game against Worcester was real nice, we were sitting like right there so we had a nice view of it. I think he dropped the gloves in the preseason game I saw and was happy to see that as well. I guess I should pay more attention to him to see what all the fuss is about.

lol, this is true.

Nothing against the guy, he's played at a level I could have only dreamed of reaching when I was a kid. But, there's a reason he's almost 30 and just made it out of the ECHL. I really don't want to slam the guy, (because he is better than Wishart) but I don't agree with the assessment that he's been good either.

cheers for the heads up, woulda missed it.

edit: bad first period by bridgeport. Poulin still shaky, bad pp (hammer not controlling the puck well on the blue line). Nino continues to create chances though. Nontheless bridgeport takes a 1-0 (McDonald from Hill) into the break.

I'm following the boxscore at work. Bridgeport up 3-2 at the end of the 2nd on a goal by Nelson. Good to see him keeping up the production.
