Hurricane Sandy has left its mark, but AHL games will go on as scheduled -- and free -- in Bridgeport this weekend.
From the Connecticut Post's Sound Tigers beatwriter Michael Fornabaio, the club will offer free admission to this weekend's games in the aftermath of Sandy, which has wrecked shorelines, flooded and destroyed neighborhoods and knocked out power in the most densely populated region of the U.S.
(On Twitter, Matt Donovan shows "a war zone" in the aftermath.)
The two games are Saturday at 7 p.m. when they host the Hershey Bears, and Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. when the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins visit.
The Sound Tigers tweeted the lines from practice today, with Nino remaining on L1 and the Swedes sticking together:
(Don't you love how their forward lines have consistently formed an upside-down pyramid on the screen? Okay, maybe it's just me.)
With Calvin de Haan done, finding the right replacement partner with Ty Wishart seems imperative. Obviously Travis Hamonic is an ace in the hole who will make any pairing look good, but they have to plan for when an NHL season begins and Hamonic is no longer around to share shutdown duties.
