Time for Nino to Come Home
Nino Niederreiter scored for the third straight game, this time on a penalty shot, as Bridgeport beat Hershey 4-3 tonight, their 1st win in Chocolate City since 2007.
Nino finishes his six-game stint with the Sound Tigers with 3-1-4 and a +4 rating. He is expected to be in the Islander lineup on Tuesday when they host the Rangers.
Anders Nilsson was the winning netminder; the rookie is turning some heads and is now 5-2-0 on the season. David Ullstrom recorded the winning goal; he now leads the team with 10 goals. Only 1 player in the AHL (Carter Ashton) has more.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
