American Hockey League: Bridgeport Sound Tigers (12-14-1-3), 4th in Northeast Division, 12th in Eastern Conference)

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers posted a winning weekend, going 2-1 over their last three games. Anders Nilsson stopped all 33 shots for his first shutout of the season as Sound Tigers blanked the Hartford Wolf Pack 3-0 on Friday night. 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. Bridgeport’s power play was humming as the Sound Tigers scored three times with the man advantage. Dallas Jackson scored the winner with under a 1:30 to play in regulation, while John Persson, Alan Quine and Mike Halmo each lit the lamp for the Sound Tigers.
