It’s a typically busy Saturday in the AHL tonight, with all 30 teams in action from coast to coast, and in a rare promo you can watch any of them for free.
That means if you’re tired of the Islanders — come on though, they just got back from break! — or just want something to do while waiting for their game to begin in Arizona tonight, you can catch their AHL affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers visit their regional rival and Rangers affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack.
It’s free thanks to a one-day free trial of AHL Live, the league’s online streaming product available on PC, Android, Android Tablet, ipad, and iphone. Use code AHLFREE17. (Select “away audio” for the Sound Tigers call.)
Full season any-team packages currently run for $250, while individual team packages range from $100 (away games only) to $165 (home and away), or $35 for five-game packages and $65 for 10-game packages.
So, if you’ve never tried this, the promo is designed for you (come on, man...the first hit’s on me) to get you hooked.
Among the definites tonight is just-announced AHL All-Star and Isles prospect Devon Toews, though Ryan Pulock is still out with his injury. The Sound Tigers did not play last night -- and have five days off after tonight -- but lost Wednesday via shootout, while the Wolf Pack ended a four-game losing streak with a win last night.
Bridgeport’s game starts at 7:30 p.m. EST. The Isles get started in Glendale at 8 p.m. EST.
