The Bridgeport Sound Tigers (36-29-5-3), proud AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders, collected four points in as many games last week, but fell victim to a tough Atlantic Division for the second straight year and were mathematically eliminated from Calder Cup Playoff contention. Steve Bernier (two goals, two assists) and Josh Ho-Sang (four assists) led the way with four points each, while rookie defenseman Mitch Vande Sompel also scored twice.
The Sound Tigers opened the week with their annual Spring Fun 102 school-day game on Tuesday morning, and captured a 3-2 win against the Providence Bruins in front of 7,451 electric fans at Webster Bank Arena. Travis St. Denis netted the game-winner midway through the third period, while Casey Bailey and Kellen Jones also beat goaltender Dan Vladar. Ho-Sang added two assists and Eamon McAdam (5-2-0) made 23 saves between the pipes.
