  1. Very good work, Rich, thanks for sharing. Out of idle curiosity, how did you choose the sequence of mascots in your layout? It doesn't appear to be alphabetic by team name nor by mascot name. Questions like this are the reason my wife stopped asking for my opinion on the arrangements of her quilt block patterns.

  6. On my first pass at the League home openers announcement (thanks, adsfan), I missed this important detail: "The complete 2017-18 regular-season schedule will be unveiled on Tuesday, July 11, at 3 p.m. ET."
  7. My wife & I can only attest to the public areas of Panther Arena, after our visit for two Admirals games in April. It's a simple but comfortable arena. I was most impressed by the new center-hung video boards (very crisp images) & the new lighting system (especially the multi-colored ice surface lighting capability). MUCH better game-night experience than Bradley Center had come to offer.
  8. It's wasn't just Milwaukee contributing to the annual AHL schedule delay. Cleveland & San Antonio also play second fiddle to NBA teams playing in the same arenas. But I hope you're right about an early schedule release this season, adsfan - I've still got some dates to fill in on my road trip calendar.

  11. And the Griffins take a 2-0 series lead, beating Syracuse 6-5 in an exhausting game that went to double overtime. Both goaltenders were beatable in regulation, and it was another seesaw game through 60 before the Crunch's Mike McKenna & especially GR's Jared Coreau elevated their games. The visitors dominated the offensive play late in the third period & well into the second extra period, but both sides were showing their fatigue when the Griffs scored the OT winner on a quick transition play in the Syracuse end. Both teams will certainly appreciate the rest, as the Finals move to NY State for Game 3 on Wednesday night and at least Game 4 scheduled for Friday night.
  12. Griffins take Game 1 by a 3-2 score, after breaking the tie on a power play goal with just 14 seconds left in regulation after Syracuse was nailed for a too-many-men penalty. This was a very competitive game that could've gone either way. The Crunch appear to be the toughest matchup for the Griffins in this year's playoff run. Oughta be a very entertaining series. AHL Live! is offering free streams of all Finals games again this season - don't miss 'em.

  19. As I feared, the Griffins were just too much for the Wolves to handle. So the Western Conference finals match-up is set ... Barracuda, Griffins to meet for West title Meanwhile in the East, Hershey & Syracuse hold 3-2 semifinal series leads. ETA: Make that a 3-3 series.
  20. Did I miss a 2017-18 schedule release from the AHL? You folks seem to be presuming the new divisional alignment will bring play among all teams in a given conference. I'm thinking all this realignment does is weight any given team's schedule toward its own division members. The Pacific are quite likely to still be dancing to their own tune of reduced game totals, and they will largely stick with their own kind. The North seems to offer the most early interest, with the new & relocated teams. Otherwise, I don't see any balance-of-power shifts with the latest shuffle.

  22. It takes time to get enough Dunkin' Donuts ready for that big playoff crowd in Providence.
