No scoring

Dumb blog trivia (no prizes, just admiration):

Going 45 without a goal tonight called to mind that Bridgeport has gone to overtime scoreless four times; two times, the game has stayed that way.

1) Both scoreless ties were at home, and both were in some way notable games; the first, maybe, was notable for two reasons. Name the opponents and the reasons for notoriety.

2) Bridgeport lost the other two games, which were decided in overtime (though both were played in the shootout era). What did those decisive goals have in common?
