This past Friday, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers concluded their pre season schedule with a 2-0 loss to the Monarchs. Bridgeport ended their pre season with a 1-1 record having gotten a shutout victory the night before.
Bridgeport opens their season on Friday night October 12th, away vs the Connecticut Whale. (Rangers) Their home schedule begins the following night October 13th, with a 7PM game vs Providence. (Bruins) Prior to the start of this game Bridgeports banner commemorating their division title last season will be raised. With the NHL lockout in full effect and not showing any signs of ending soon; I think Bridgeport and other teams in the AHL will big beneficiaries because of the attention it will draw to games that usually doesn't exist.
