SOUND TIGERS WIN 2-1 IN OT
Sink Admirals with late power-play goals

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the Islanders' AHL affiliate, rallied to beat the Norfolk Admirals 2-1 in overtime at home Sunday afternoon to pull within two points of the Admirals in the East Division standings.

Sound Tigers goalie Wade Dubielewicz kept Norfolk at bay turning away all 11 shots he faced in the first period.  In the middle frame, Dubielewicz continued his stellar play making two saves on Mark Cullen during a goal mouth scramble just past the mid-point of the period.

With 1:31 remaining in the period, the Admirals finally broke through when Shawn Thornton wristed a seeing-eye shot past Dubielewicz for his ninth tally of the season just one second after a Norfolk power play expired.  Danny Richmond and Pavel Vorobiev assisted on the play giving the Admirals a 1-0 lead.

Early in the third period, Mark Cullen and Carl Corazzini both had opportunities to boost Norfolk's lead to 2-0 but were denied when Dubielewicz made back-to-back saves.  He stopped Cullen on a wrister from just inside the right circle then Corazzini on a backhander from the slot on the rebound.

"If Dubielewicz doesn't make those two saves, we're in a real hole," Sound Tigers head coach Dave Baseggio said. "We came to life after that and were able to get two much needed points."

The Sound Tigers evened the score at 1-1 on a two-man advantage when Jeff Hamilton fired a slap shot off the left post and past Admirals netminder Corey Crawford for his 19th goal of the season with Rob Collins and Jeremy Colliton picking up assists at 8:16 of the third period.

In the extra frame, Hamilton's hot stick got the Sound Tigers the clinching goal at 1:04 when he one-timed his second power-play tally of the game and 20th overall of the season off assists from Bruno Gervais and Collins for the 2-1 victory.

Dubielewicz stopped 40 of 41 shots to earn the victory for the Sound Tigers who were 2 for 6 on the power play and 2 for 2 on the penalty kill while Crawford stopped 31 shots for the Admirals who held the shots on goal advantage at 41-34. The first star of the game was Dubielewicz, the second was Hamilton, and the third was Thornton.

The Sound Tigers will begin a stretch of seven straight road games when they visit Norfolk this coming Friday and Saturday, March 10th and 11th.  All Sound Tigers games are web-cast live at www.soundtigers.com.  Fans can also watch all AHL games live on the B2 Networks.
