SOUND TIGERS NOTEBOOK
Shorthanded, but Battling on the Road

WEEK IN REVIEW
Friday, March 17th at Providence, 3-2 L
EVGENY TUNIK assisted on the team's first goal by JEFF HAMILTON and tallied the game-winner with 2:33 left to play as the Sound Tigers rallied from a 2-0 second-period deficit for their first-ever win in Providence, 3-2.  DAVID MASSE also scored while WADE DUBIELEWICZ made 35 saves for the Sound Tigers who won despite playing two skaters short due to injuries and recalls.

Saturday, March 18th at Portland, 5-2 L JEFF HAMILTON and DAVID MASSE had a goal and an assist apiece, RYAN CALDWELL notched two assists and FREDERIC CLOUTIER made 32 saves, but the Sound Tigers lost 5-2 to the top team in the Atlantic Division.  Despite the return of ALLAN ROURKE from emergency recall to the Islanders, the Sound Tigers played shorthanded two skaters for the second game in as many nights because MASI MARJAMAKI was a late scratch with a knee injury.

SOUND TIGERS SCORING RECORD... FOR NOW
With a goal and an assist Saturday, JEFF HAMILTON leapfrogged past ROB COLLINS to become the Sound Tigers' all-time leading scorer with 156 points.  However, the Sound Tigers have requested a review that would switch credit for a goal scored earlier in the season from BRUNO GERVAIS to JEREMY COLLITON and take an assist away from Hamilton in the process.  Regardless of how the review goes, Hamilton is the all-time franchise leader with 89 goals while Collins is tops with 104 assists.
