Bridgeport 4, Albany 3: Comeau to Isles

New York Islander Fan Central | 12/17/2007 12:00:00 AM | | | | |

Sound Tigers website: Has the post game on Bridgeport's 4-3 win Sunday over the Albany River Rats where Bryan Trottier again was behind the bench.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio's game report is on Jeff Tambellini's hat-trick (shorthanded goal, even strength, powerplay goal) in a 4-3 win where he left before taking to the media, Albany having to use seven players on tryouts Sunday to replace eight flu-ridden players.

"Jeff's been playing well," Bridgeport coach Jack Capuano said. "He's been taking it to the net and scoring goals for us, which is great."

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio blogs on the Sound Tigers win Sunday and the callup of Blake Comeau to the Islanders after the game.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Love the callup of Blake Comeau, but he needs to see minutes, not fourth line shifts and less than five minutes a game. Ted Nolan had high praise for him last year.

Maybe the media just missed Tambellini but strange he had a huge game and left without talking about it.

Trots looked good behind that bench this weekend, I wonder what his involvement was in terms of the games or if he was just doing observing for the Islanders. Kenny Morrow was also working with the players and behind the bench recently.


  1. Trust me NY1, we did not miss Tambellini. Infact, we were waiting for him for about an hour. We saw him get dressed, and then he disappeared! We were even waiting by the door with no sign of him.

    It was very odd that he would do something like that as all four of us that were in the Sound Tigers locker room were all stunned that we couldn't grab him.

  2. Hi Tom,

    Happy Holidays and great work on your blog.

    Seems very uncharacteristic for Tambellini to act like that unless there is something we do not know about because he's always been a standup player willing to point to his own play for recalls and demotions.

    I have a hard time believing he's annoyed at the Islanders for his quick and somewhat unfair demotion and has decided not to talk which he has not done since he was sent down.

    Did not read anything critical from Mr Fornabaio or Kimber Auerbach recently where he would be annoyed at the Ct Post beatwriter. With Trots and Morrow behind the bench I get the impression there is some pressure on Jack Capuano and should be given the club's record with a veteran roster.

    No doubt we will get answers soon, could be something, but it could be nothing.

    Too bad there were no quotes from Blake Comeau or the Islanders on his callup.

    Keep up the great work.
