A mini-milestone passed quietly (at least in this space) last night: Bridgeport won its 29th game, one more than it won in each of the past two seasons. It’s only three away from its win total in the (last) lockout year. Matching four seasons ago will be tougher but possible: The Sound Tigers will need 12 wins in these last 21 games to do that.
Yep, 21 games to go. The quarter pole comes Wednesday night.
Looks like the same lineup as last night for Bridgeport today. The Devils go with Yann Danis; they picked up Seth Helgeson and Stefan Matteau (conditioning on the latter) yesterday. One to scratch for each, and looked like Collberg and Burlon.
F: O’Neill-Lorito–Sislo (A)
R: Schlenker, T.Koharski. L: Galvin, N.Briganti.
Bridgeport scratches (believed healthy unless noted): Ludwig (suspended), Leduc (right foot), Whitney (right leg), Rowe (lower body), Fritz, looked like Collberg.
Elsewhere, former Lowell Lock Monster Eric Staal is a New York Ranger.
