Bridgeport Matinee: Sound Tigers Look for More from Whale

After a rare Saturday night off, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers look for their second win of the weekend as they host the Connecticut Whale Sunday afternoon.

Sundstrom: Quietly good.

First thing's first, the nicer side: Through a "Goals for Groceries" program, each time the Sound Tigers score a goal at home this season, Citizens Bank will donate $20 to the Connecticut Food Bank of New Haven. As part of this program, there are four games this year where if you bring 10 canned goods to the game (including today's game), you'll receive a ticket voucher for a future game.

Also, with the big club: On Monday, from 2 - 8 p.m., the Islanders will host a free, open skate at Nassau Coliseum for the general public. Throughout the event, the team will collect monetary donations, warm clothing and other non-perishable items for Hurricane Sandy relief. Details and instructions here.

Back to the hockey: The Sound Tigers host the Connecticut Whale with a chance to create some separation. The 7-3 Sound Tigers are three points ahead of Connecticut with a game in hand, and the 5-5-1 Whale are playing their third road game in as many days.

Last night the Whale took out Worcester 6-2, rebounding from another loss to Springfield the night before.
