Pierre-Marc Bouchard, Mike Halmo and Anders Lee scored for the Sound Tigers in the win. Halmo and Lee each scored power-play goals and the Sound Tigers penalty kill was a perfect 6-for-6… Nilsson followed up his shutout with a solid 25-save performance, but the Sound Tigers fell 2-1 to the Manchester Monarchs Saturday. Despite the loss, Scooter Vaughan had a night to remember, as he scored his first AHL goal… The Sound Tigers rebounded Sunday, beating the Albany Devils 4-3.
