DUBIE MAKES 52 SAVES
Sets Sound Tigers record 52 in 4-2 win over Hershey

Bridgeport Sound Tigers goaltender Wade Dubielewicz stopped a single-game, franchise record 52 shots in a 4-2 victory over the Hershey Bears on Friday night.
 
Eric Boguniecki and Robert Nilsson both had a goal and an assist - each setting up the other - to give the Sound Tigers their fourth straight win on home ice, before 4,745 fans at the Arena at Harbor Yard.

The Sound Tigers improved to 23-20-1-4 and the Bears fell to 31-10-5-5, becoming the last American Hockey League team to have double digit regulation losses. The Sound Tigers won for the fifth time in six games against the defending Calder Cup champs, the team with the second best record in the AHL.

Boguniecki scored the eventual game-winner when he one-timed a cross ice power play pass from Nilsson past Hershey goaltender Frederic Cassivi for a 3-2 lead at 5:40 of the second period. Nilsson returned the favor after Boguniecki fed him for a one-timer from the slot for the game's first goal, on the Sound Tigers' first shot, just 1:25 into the first period.

The Sound Tigers took a 2-0 lead when Jason Pitton peppered Cassivi with four successive shots on one sequence and finally scored through a screen set by Steve Regier. Pitton's goal, his sixth of the campaign, came 13:35 into the opening period.

The Bears clawed back beginning with Louis Robitaille's fifth of the season less than a minute after Pitton scored. Robitaille backhanded a shot into the top corner of the net to slice the Sound Tiger lead in half to 2-1. Hershey tied the score at two apiece when Jakub Klepis notched his second of the year just 2:21 into the middle period.

Bridgeport's special teams was a strong all around, with the power play going 1-for-3 and the penalty kill shutting down the Bears in five man advantages. Regier blocked two shots and fellow defenseman Drew Fata got in the way of another on one of the Bears' power plays.

Dubielewicz stopped 17 of 18 first period shots, 14 of 15 in the second period and all 21 the Bears fired at him in the third. Dubielewicz broke a record he set Jan. 20 at Hershey when he made a then-high 51 saves in regulation and overtime.

The outcome was in doubt until Jeremy Colliton stole the puck near the boards at center ice and scored into an empty net at 19:26 of the third. Colliton also had an assist on Nilsson's goal and Petteri Nokelainen and Allan Rourke also earned assists in the win.
