Bits: Bridgeport Sound Tigers Open With Loss; More NHL Series Face Elimination

Justin DiBenedetto had eight shots last night. In hockey, silly.

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers worked hard to match the Connecticut Whale's top line in Game 1 of their playoff series, only to see the Whale's other lines break a tight game open in the third period. Result: 3-0 loss, with the goalie pulled early for a sixth attacker but conceding no further damage.

John Persson was robbed of a goal (waived off, ref lost sight) that would've made it 1-0, but otherwise accounts make it sound a fair result.

Goodness, these playoffs are close.

Fortunately, no epic headline-making violence last night. For once. (There was some fantastic clock controversy though.) Still, the conversation continues:
