Bridgeport chat with Fornabaio at 1:30

Mikchael Fornabaio at the Connecticut Post is doing this online chat every Tuesday. Click the link for a replay and some nice Bridgeport nuggets.

Bridgeport chat today at connpost.com

Don't know how many of you visit Mike Fornabaio's coverage of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL), but he's having an online chat today at 1:30 p.m. EST. [Edit: As he points out, they are doing them every Tuesday.] If you have questions about the boys down on the farm -- whether young or Witt -- that'd be a good destination.

Bobby Hughes to ECHL Utah

Sound Tigers beat writer Fornabaio reports the move as purely a hockey decisions. (In truth, they did have a lot of bodies in Bridgeport.) But on top of all the legal issues, a backwards move sure doesn't look good for his career.

Mikko Koskinen makes 32 saves in AHL debut

A 3-3 tie with the Sound Tigers winning the shootout. Koskinen withstood a barrage in the first period, according to the Conn. Post.

Islanders depth departures: Lee, Mannino

Mike Fornabaio notes Peter Mannino has moved on to the Atlanta Thrashers' organization, while defenseman Chris Lee, who turns 29 in October, has become a Penguin. In a strange season, Mannino's 40-save win in Chicago was one of the highlights. Update: The list of 20 NHLers filing for arbitration includes Nate Thompson.

Sound Tigers eliminated by Baby Pens

"More than 20 men sat in a ring in their dressing room at Wachovia Arena, staring straight ahead, expressionless. The Bridgeport Sound Tigers' season ended with a five-game playoff-series loss to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, capped by a 4-2 Penguins win Friday in Game 5..." This is disappointing. They were hurt by injuries, yes, but they had home ice and a longer run would have served several of these Islanders prospects well. With that, the season in Islanders Country really is over.

Nice 24 hours for the Sound Tigers

First the Bentivoglio hat trick to clinch the playoffs, then longshot goalie Nathan Lawson is named to the AHL All-Rookie Team. Mirtle has a little more on the rest of the All-Rookie squad.
