Kevin Poulin posts second cconsecutive shutout
Kevin Poulin recorded his second straight shutout while Micheal Haley and Rhett Rakhshani each had a goal and an assist as the Sound Tigers recorded three power play goal en route to a 4-0 win over Manchester.
Mike Fornabaio has the numbers in his blog:
A few notes from Mike:
Bridgeport 4, Manchester 0, final. Sound Tigers record back-to-back shutouts for the first time in over six years, since Dec. 31, 2005-Jan. 4, 2006.
–Streaks, if you'll permit me a chance to re-check my arithmetic in Base 60: Poulin 138:17, team 140:28.2.
–The Sound Tigers recorded three shutouts in a row once (by three different goalies) and now have back-to-back shutouts four other times.
Poulin is the first Bridgeport goalie to record shutouts in back-to-back games ... Poulin is the third Bridgeport goalie to post shutouts in back-to-back starts
Poulin will likely have a shut at Rick DiPietro's SoundTigers record on Saturday, when Bridgeport visits Portland (he is 17:52 short of Rick's mark).
