Islanders Euro, Bridgeport, Prospect Roundup: Strome, Tavares pile up points

New, comments

It was an ugly weekend for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, but several Islanders prospects in the CHL and NCAA had big performances.

We'll start with the ugliness and get that out of the way: Bridgeport conceded 13 goals over the weekend, and 18 goals over the last three games, capped by last night's 6-1 loss in Binghamton.

Head coach Scott Pellerin is not a happy camper.

Michael Fornabaio has details in the Post here and the Soundin Off blog here. Go yonder for the box score and game sheet. The official site describes it here.

Jason Clark got an assist, his second pro point, on Brandon DeFazio's late shutout ender. Nathan McIver was minus-3 and collected 18 PIM. Kevin Poulin was pulled after four goals, but the blame appears to lie with the men in front of him.

The Sound Tigers next face Hershey Friday.

Europe: Tavares with Six Points. (Bust.)
  • Bern smoked Biel again, with John Tavares notching only two goals and four assists in an 8-2 blowout. As Kaonashi noted in comments of the previous thread, I guess this is Johnny T. in second gear. Biel features Patrick Kane and Tyler Seguin, who each had a point.
  • In the KHL, Lubomir Visnovsky has four goals and five assists on the season for Slovan Bratislava. Kirill Petrov's Ak Bars Kazan is fighting for the top spot in the league, but he's been stuck on eight points for most of the month.
  • Michael Grabner is up to 10 goals and nine assists in 15 games for VCV of the Austrian league.
  • Josh Bailey has seven points in four games already for the Bietigheim Steelers of the German second division.
  • Frans Nielsen has selfishly decided to score a goal finally to go with his 14 assists for Lukko in Finland.
Prospects: Ryan Strome Nears 2.0 Points/GP
