BERGENHEIM\'S 4 GOALS LEAD SOUND TIGERS
Bridgeport beats rival Hartford, 5-1

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Islanders' AHL affiliate, beat the Hartford Wolf Pack 5-1 at home Wednesday on the strength of four goals by Sean Bergenheim.  The win was the first in seven tries versus the Wolf Pack for the Sound Tigers this season.  The four goals by Bergenheim set a new Sound Tigers single-game record and also tied a team mark for most points in a single outing.

"Down low is where he is at his best and it showed tonight with his deflections," Sound Tigers head coach Dave Baseggio said.  "His confidence has really grown this season helping him concentrate on his game on the ice."

The Sound Tigers cashed in on an early power play when Bergenheim deflected a Robert Nilsson slap shot past Hartford goaltender Robert Gherson for his 22nd goal of the season at 2:53 for the early 1-0 lead.  Cole Jarrett chipped in with a helper on the play.  Bergenheim wasted no time collecting his second goal of the game and 23rd of the season 6:03 later when Allan Rourke took a shot that he tipped through Gherson for the 2-0 lead.  Harlan Pratt assisted on the play.

In the middle frame, Bergenheim completed his hat trick with a shorthanded goal, finishing a pretty weave play with Jeremy Colliton for his 24th tally of the season making the score 3-0 at 4:42.  Pratt picked up his second assist of the game on the play.  It was the fourth shorthanded goal of the season for Bergenheim, which is also a new team record.

The Wolf Pack changed goalies after the third goal, going with Chris Holt who didn't fair much better as Matt Koalska slipped home his 17th marker of the season on the power play off feeds from David Masse and Masi Marjamaki at 7:03 increasing the lead to 4-0.

Hartford spoiled Sound Tigers netminder Wade Dubielewicz's shutout bid with exactly four minutes remaining in the second period, when Alexandre Giroux pushed a lose puck in for his 24th goal of the season on assists from Hugh Jessiman and Jarkko Immonen, cutting the Sound Tigers lead to 4-1 heading into the final period. 

Dubielewicz kept the Sound Tigers in front by three goals when he denied the Wolf Pack's Alexandre Giroux on a penalty shot 4:33 into the third period.  The Sound Tigers have never allowed a goal on a penalty shot since joining the AHL in 2001.

Bergenheim tipped home his record-setting fourth goal off a feed from Nilsson with 5:38 left to play for his team-leading 25th of the season, with Colliton also assisting on the play.

"Scoring four goals doesn't come without a lot of help, which I got from my linemates tonight," Bergenheim said.  "Not all the credit can go to me, I was just lucky enough to finish the plays that they created." 

Bergenheim was the first star of the game, Dubielewicz the second with his second 42-save effort in as many games and Nilsson was the third.  The Sound Tigers were 2 for 5 on the power play and 3 for 3 on the penalty kill.  Hartford had a 43-25 shots on goal advantage.

Prior to the game the Sound Tigers announced that netminder Cody Rudkowsky had re-signed with the team on a professional tryout contract.

The Sound Tigers will visit the Lowell Lock Monsters this Friday at 7:35 p.m. and return home to host the Binghamton Senators this Sunday at 4:05 p.m.  The first 1,500 fans 14 and under who enter this Sunday's game at Bridgeport's Arena at Harbor Yard will receive a Trent Hunter bobble-head doll.
