Sound Tigers Slump Continues, Drop Behind Whale

Sure, just hand him the puck. - Bruce Bennett

Neither the NHL lockout nor the Sound Tigers' winless streak ended Wednesday night.

Everything was looking promising after Bridgeport mounted pressure and John Persson tied it at 2-2 in the final minutes of the second period.

Then everything changed in a few early minutes of the third. J.T. Miller got two quick goals off turnovers to make it 4-2, and the Sound Tigers managed only four shots in that deflating third period.

The winless streak grows to seven. Once 10-4, they're now 10-10-0-1 and a point behind the Whale.

Jon Landry (now sporting an "A") scored again, on the powerplay. (As Chris asked on Twitter, is Landry becoming a candidate for the post-lockout Islanders?) Anders Nilsson couldn't bail out his team after two back-breaking turnovers on Miller's goals.

Brandon DeFazio fought, and apparently pummeled, Brandon Segal after Segal took out Matt Donovan. DeFazio received an ejection for leaving the bench to fight.
