Had the NHL season started on time, many believed that Nino Niederreiter would have still opened the season with Bridgeport.
With the NHL locked out, there was no decision to make and Niederreiter has been a model of consistency at the AHL level. The Sound Tigers have played eight games this month, and Nino has at least one point in all of them, going 5-6-11 in the 8 games and is now 9-8-17 in 14 games this season.
David Ullstrom had his second consecutive 2 goal, 1 assist game today, as Bridgeport pounded Providence 6-2. Anders Nilsson picked up both wins as the Sound Tigers moved into a tie for the AHL league in team wins: 10.
Bridgeport will face the Phantoms in Glens Falls on Wednesday before hosting the Whale (Rangers) on Friday.
