We haven't had many "bits" or news sampling posts since the NHL lockout canceled Christmas. We haven't had actual NHL games since our site redesign. We'll fire these up again and see if it pleases the masses.

Last night Bridgeport lost another one-goal game, in a season that begs for patterns and narratives (great start here, winless streak there, hot run here, string of close defeats there). Things started well with yet another early goal, NHL aspirants David Ullstrom and Nino Niederreiter combining to set up Johan Sundstrom.

The teams traded leads for the rest of the game. Hershey claimed the final one with an overtime winner. The Sound Tigers were down to four defensemen after Aaron Ness lost teeth and Nathan McIver took a hit.

Michael Fornabaio has coverage in the blog here and in the Post here. Official site recap here.

Lockout Aftermath

Well, expect CBA ratification by Saturday, training camps by Sunday. Looks like we're really doing this thing.
