The Sound Tigers have earned a point in 11 straight games (8 wins, 3 shootout losses), and begin a stretch of 4 home games in 6 days on Tuesday.
Bridgeport's record (36-17-3-5; the AHL separates OT losses from shootout losses) is almost exactly the opposite of the Isles record (19-36-7). Bridgeport has five 15-goal scorers, led by Mike Iggulden (23-34-57). The Sound Tigers are in 2nd place in both the Eastern Division and Eastern Conference -- 4 points behind Hershey and two points ahead of Wilkes Barre.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
