SOUND TIGERS & PENGUINS GOING TO GAME SEVEN
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton wins 3-2 in OT on power play

The Sound Tigers lost 3-2 in overtime at home Friday to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, who evened the best-of-seven East Division semifinal between the teams at three games apiece with the victory. The seventh-and-deciding game in the series will be played at the Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton tomorrow, Saturday, April 29th, at 7:05 p.m. The game will be web-cast live at http://www.bridgeportsoundtigers.com beginning at 6:45 p.m. Fans can also watch the game live on the Internet via the B2 Networks pay per view.

Eleven of the 13 all-time playoff games involving the teams have been one-goal contests with eight, including three of the last four this spring, decided in overtime.

After zipping through a scoreless first period, it looked as if the teams would do so in the middle frame, but Wilkes-Barre/Scranton defenseman Noah Welch blasted home a slap-shot for his first postseason goal off assists from Jonathan Filewich and Ryan Stone with 1:10 left on the clock for a 1-0 lead.

The Sound Tigers evened the game at 1-1 when Masi Marjamaki tallied his third playoff marker, his second in as many games, off feeds from David Masse and Steve Regier just 3:47 into the third period.

The Penguins regained the lead at 10:04 when Jonathan Filewich chipped home a rebound for his fourth goal of the postseason with Maxime Talbot earning the lone assist. However, the Sound Tigers roared right back just 1:13 later when Matt Koalska scored his second goal of the playoffs, and in as many games, off assists from Ryan Caldwell and Rob Collins to knot the score at 2-2.

The Sound Tigers had a chance to win the game, and the series, early in the extra session when referee Francois St. Laurent whistled Welch for tripping at the 1:48 mark, but they could not take advantage of the opportunity. St. Laurent then sent Sound Tiger Jeremy Colliton to the bin for interference at 12:56, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton converted the chance as Stone blasted home a slap-shot for his second postseason tally off assists from Ryan Whitney and Filewich at the 13:39 mark.

Stone was the first star of the game, Marjamaki the second and Sound Tigers goaltender Wade Dubielewicz the third with a franchise, playoff, single-game record 45 saves. Marc-Andre Fleury made 33 saves for the Penguins who had a 48-35 shots on goal advantage and were 1 for 5 on the power play and 6 for 6 on the penalty kill.

The winner of Saturday's game will face the Hershey Bears in the East Division finals.
