Winless Streak Hits Three For Bridgeport

January 3, 2015 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Bridgeport Sound Tigers News Release

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - The Sound Tigers lost their second straight game of the new year, falling 7-4 to the Albany Devils Saturday night at Webster Bank Arena.

The Sound Tigers fell behind early in the contest from a goal on a wicked snap shot by Albany's Paul Thomson, but would tie the game later in the frame.

Harry Zolniercyzk got the Sound Tigers on the board off of a nice feed from Alan Quine. After receiving the puck, Zolnierczyk made an excellent move and knocked the puck past Albany netminder Maxime Clermont.

The game continued to swing back and forth, with the Devils taking the lead and the Sound Tigers continuing to tie it up. Just over a minute after Albany's David Wohlberg scored, Bridgeport's Griffin Reinhart walked untouched into the slot and ripped a shot past Clermont.

However, after the Devils scored to make the game 3-2, the floodgates seemed to open. The Devils scored twice more in a row to make the game into a 5-2 affair, but the Sound Tigers battled back.

Kael Mouillierat scored a goal on a nice tic-tac-toe passing-play from Colin McDonald and Aaron Ness to cut the lead to two, and Quine scored a power-play goal with 0.8 seconds left to bring the score to 5-4 with one period to go.

The Sound Tigers had a number of good chances to tie the game up in the final frame, but Albany's Chris McKelvie put the game away for good with an insurance marker halfway through the period.

Bridgeport's Scooter Vaughan would try to get the team going by getting into a fight with Albany's Dan Kelly late in the game, but to no avail.

Bridgeport netminder David Leggio finished the game with 23 saves in the loss, while Clermont made 28 for the win.

The Sound Tigers return to action tomorrow afternoon with a 3:00 game against Albany in the second half of a back-to-back series. It's Star Wars Day at Webster Bank Arena, as fans are encouraged to wear Star Wars costumes to the game.
