Falcons Top Sound Tigers

Bridgeport Sound Tiger rookie Frans Nielsen extended his point streak to eight games with an assist, but the Sound Tigers were topped 3-1 on the road by the Springfield Falcons on Saturday night. The Sound Tigers dropped their fifth straight road game and fell to 13-15-1-3 overall. The Falcons, meanwhile, improved to 19-14-0-1 and swept the season series 2-0 before 3,842 fans at the MassMutual Center.

Falcon goaltender Jonathan Boutin stopped 36 shots as the Sound Tigers finished the game with a decisive 37-27 shots on goal advantage. Norm Milley had two assists and three players scored to lead the way for the Falcons.

The score was tied 1-1 late in the second period before Springfield took the lead for good. Daniel Corso redirected the puck past Sound Tigers goaltender Michael Mole at 18:49 of the second period for a 2-1 lead. Springfield defenseman Andy Delmore's insurance tally, a power play goal 4:50 in the third, gave the Falcons a 3-1 edge.

Mole stopped David Spina's first period penalty shot to keep the game scoreless just 2:56 into the contest. Springfield defenseman Doug O'Brien broke a scoreless tie with his first goal of the year at 6:05 of the second period. Just 2:33 after O'Brien's goal, Bridgeport's Steve Regier netted his ninth goal, on the power play, to knot the score; Nielsen and Eric Boguniecki assisted the play.

The Sound Tigers were 1-for-6 on the power play and the Falcons went 1-for-7 on the advantage.

Rourke Called Up to Isles, Fraser Joins Tigers

Bridgeport Sound Tigers' defenseman Allan Rourke has been recalled by the parent club New York Islanders. Radek Martinek, arguably the Islanders' best defenseman this season, will be out of action for four weeks after suffering a broken bone in his foot during the team's 2-0 win over the Rangers on Tuesday night at the Coliseum. To replace him in the lineup, the Islanders recalled Rourke on an emergency basis.

In 29 games for the Sound Tigers this season, Rourke has three goals and six assists for nine points and has 26 penalty minutes.

The Sound Tigers signed 21-year-old Jamie Fraser to a PTO to fill the void on the blue line. In 27 games with the South Carolina Stingrays of the East Coast Hockey League, Fraser had five goals and 23 assists for 28 points this season. Fraser had just six penalty minutes in his ECHL action this campaign. He also played in two games with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch and did not register a point. Fraser is 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds. He was born in Sarnia, Ontario.

Rourke signed with the Islanders in August of 2005 and split time between Bridgeport and the Islanders in 2005-06, his first season with organization. In six games with the Islanders last season, he recorded one assist and in 58 games for Bridgeport he compiled nine goals and 22 assists for 31 points and had 42 penalty minutes. This will be Rourke's third season in the NHL; he played in 25 games for the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2003-04 season, when he recorded a goal and two assists to go along with 22 penalty minutes.

Bayda also had an assist, Keith Aucoin had three assists and former Sound Tiger Ben Guite had a goal and an assist. Johnny Boychuk also scored for Albany, which opened a 7-1 lead, marking the first time the Sound Tigers have allowed more than six goals in a game this season. The River Rats led 4-1 after one period.

Eric Boguniecki and Jeff Tambellini, whose power play tally had tied the game 1-1 early in the first, scored Sound Tiger goals.

Albany outshot Bridgeport 38-23 as Michael Mole stopped 31 Albany shots and his counterpart, Tyler Weiman, made 20 saves. The River Rats were 1-for-8 against Bridgeport's league best penalty killing unit. The Sound Tigers were 1-for-3 on the man advantage.

Wolves Haydar Rings in New Year with Recall to Atlanta

The Atlanta Thrashers have recalled right wing DARREN HAYDAR, the American Hockey League's leading scorer, from the Chicago Wolves.

The 27-year-old forward currently holds the sixth longest scoring streak in professional hockey history after registering at least one point in each of Chicago's first 36 games this season. The streak is both an AHL and Wolves franchise record.

The Toronto native, who has not appeared with the Thrashers this season, has been held scoreless in two career National Hockey League contests with the Nashville Predators in 2002-03.

HAYDAR leads the AHL with 53 assists and 75 points, the most by a player in Wolves history through 36 outings, and ranks fifth with 22 goals. He has more assists than any player in the league has points, excluding linemate BRETT STERLING. His +24 plus/minus rating is also the best in the league.

Earlier this season, HAYDAR established a franchise record when he registered an assist in 14 straight tilts from Nov. 4 to Dec. 8. He has collected multiple points in 21 of his 36 games this year which includes eight three-point efforts and five four-point performances.

Overall, HAYDAR has accrued 132 goals, 219 assists and 351 points in 329 career AHL tilts with the Milwaukee Admirals (2002-2006) and Wolves.

Liv Backstops 2-0 Win Over Hamilton

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Stefan Liv earned his first North American shutout on Saturday with a fine 24-save performance, backstopping the Grand Rapids Griffins to a 2-0 victory over the Hamilton Bulldogs at Van Andel Arena.

Liv's first home win of the season gave the Griffins three standings points in the last two nights and lifted their record to 14-15-4-2. The Bulldogs, who dropped to 21-12-1-1 with their second straight loss, were shut out for the first time in more than a year, dating to a 4-0 defeat at Hershey on Dec. 17, 2005.

Grand Rapids will close out 2006 on Sunday by hosting its 10th annual New Year's Eve Extravaganza. Game time against the first-place Rochester Americans is set for 7 p.m.

The Griffins scored the game's only goals during the opening period, beginning with Kip Miller's team-leading 14th of the season during a 4-on-4 at the 14:02 mark. Given space and time by the Bulldogs' defense, he ripped a pinpoint shot over Yann Danis' left shoulder from the right circle.

Grand Rapids, which fired the last eight shots of the period en route to a 13-5 advantage at the intermission, also made the final one count with just 2.4 seconds remaining. With the Griffins buzzing around the Hamilton zone and generating several scoring chances on the power play, Matt Ellis found an opening in the slot and jammed a Miller pass into the top of the net for a 2-0 lead at the break.

Liv did the rest with help from his defense, denying 14 shots in the second period and five in the third to keep Hamilton's potent offense off the scoreboard. Grand Rapids, which has allowed only one goal in the last 123:49 of regulation time, held an opponent scoreless on the power play for the second straight game, denying seven attempts on the heels of Friday's perfect six-kill night in Milwaukee.

Griffins Shut Out Another North Division Power

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Grand Rapids Griffins rang out 2006 with their first back-to-back shutouts in nearly three years, thanks to Sunday's 3-0 victory over the first-place Rochester Americans. Coupled with Saturday's 2-0 win against second-place Hamilton and Friday's 2-1 overtime loss at Milwaukee, the Griffins (15-15-4-2) climbed back to the 0.500 mark by earning five out of a possible six points this weekend.

Three times during December the Americans (23-9-1-0) brought their premier North Division ranking into Van Andel Arena, and three times Jimmy Howard and the Griffins' defense shut down one of the AHL's elite teams. He made 32 saves tonight for his second shutout of the season, improving his numbers against Rochester this month to 3-0 with a 1.00 goals against average and a 0.966 save percentage.

After celebrating the arrival of Baby New Year, the Griffins will return to action on Friday, Jan. 5 when they visit Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for their first clash against the Penguins since the 2003 Calder Cup Playoffs. Game time is set for 7:05 p.m.

Dressed with his teammates in tuxedo-style jerseys that were auctioned afterwards for charity, Darryl Bootland gave the Griffins the only goal they would need at 6:31 of the first period. After Kip Miller forced a turnover along the end boards, Bootland collected the puck above the left circle and quickly wristed a shot top-shelf past Rochester netminder Craig Anderson.

Grand Rapids extended its lead to 2-0 with only 33 ticks remaining in the second period. On a rush into the Amerks' zone, Miller dropped a pass to Josh Langfeld, who beat Anderson with a shot similar to Bootland's and from the same spot on the ice.

A questionable five-minute boarding call on Brendan Brooks early in the third frame resulted in Brooks' ejection and extended power play time for the Americans, but the Griffins' resurgent penalty killers kept Rochester off the board. Grand Rapids, which denied all 17 opponent power plays over the weekend's three games, added an insurance goal on an empty-netter by Miller with 1:09 remaining.

The Griffins last posted consecutive shutouts on Feb. 13-14, 2004, when they blanked both Manitoba (4-0) and Houston (3-0) at Van Andel Arena. Stefan Liv made 24 saves to shut out Hamilton on Friday.

Transaction Update

New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Bryce Lampman has been reassigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Lampman, 24, has appeared in 28 games with Hartford this season, registering three goals and five assists for eight points, along with a plus-four rating and 36 penalty minutes. The 6-1, 205-pound defenseman did not dress in each of the last two games after being recalled by the Rangers from Hartford on December 26.

Rangers recall Ortmeyer

New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Jed Ortmeyer has been recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Ortmeyer, 28, has registered one goal and three assists, along with a plus-two rating and six penalty minutes in eight games with Hartford (AHL) this season. After being medically cleared to play on December 28, the 6-0, 197-pound forward collected one assist and four penalty minutes in three games during a second conditioning assignment in the American Hockey League. In his first conditioning stint, allowed for players who have had long-term illnesses, Ortmeyer registered one goal and two assists, along with a plus-two rating in five games with Hartford from December 13 to December 23. On November 24, Ortmeyer was cleared for contact in practice after medical testing showed he was ready to take the next step in his recovery from a pulmonary embolism that was diagnosed on August 13, 2006.

From today's practice, everyone on the Rangers roster participated other than Brendan Shanahan (hamstring). The Rangers return to action tomorrow, January 2, when they will face off against the New Jersey Devils at Continental Airlines Arena (7:30 PM). Prior to the game, the team's morning skate is scheduled for 11:30 AM at Continental Airlines Arena.

The Pack shut out Worcester on the road, 2-0, on Tuesday, but then dropped a 3-1 decision in Springfield on Wednesday.

Bears close out '06 in style

HERSHEY finished up 2006 as the best team in the American Hockey League, downing the Providence Bruins 5-2 at GIANT Center. The win propelled the BEARS five points ahead of second place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the East Division standings.

Providence opened the scoring late in the first period when Ben Walter tipped a Mark Stuart shot past BEARS goaltender Daren Machesney. The goal at 16:10 gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead. Alexandre Giroux tied the game before intermission with his team leading 26th goal of the season. Giroux, with help from Jonas Johansson and Joey Tenute, rang one off two posts to beat former BEARS goaler Phil Sauve to knot the game at 1-1. HERSHEY managed just four shots in the first period, compared to Providence's 11.

The Bruins would take a 2-1 lead early in the second period when T.J. Trevelyan scored his 10th goal of the season at 1:42. The BEARS would not allow a goal the rest of the night, and score four more to claim the victory. Eric Fehr scored his 17th goal of the season at 6:40 to tie the game before Tenute scored the eventual game-winner at 11:32. Fehr added his second of the period at 18:52 to give the BEARS a 4-2 lead heading to the third period. Pete Vandermeer scored his second goal of the season into an empty net to put the game on ice. The win gave HERSHEY 25 wins at the first of the new year, and a total of 57 points is the top mark in the American Hockey League.

Notes: Washington reassigned goaltender Machesney, along with defensemen Jamie Hunt and Timo Helbling prior to puck drop. One year ago, the BEARS won on New Year's Eve to claim the team's 22nd win of the season with a victory over Philadelphia. The BEARS enter 2007 with the most points of any team in the American Hockey League. The game-winning goal by Tenute was his fourth such goal in as many games. Chicago has the second most points in the AHL behind the BEARS at 53 heading into January.

Scrappy Bears win fifth in a row

With several regulars either on recall to Washington, injured or out because of the flu, the BEARS gutted out a 7-4 win over the Norfolk Admirals Saturday. The win was HERSHEY'S 24th of the season, and extended the club's lead to three points over second place Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the East Division.

Norfolk would capitalize on a defensive miscue and score on a two on none in front of HERSHEY goaltender Jeff Pietrasiak. Brandon Bochenski scored his 23rd goal of the season from Martin St. Pierre and Troy Brouwer at 7:55 to take a 1-0 lead. The BEARS would rally to tie the game before first intermission when Chad Wiseman scored a short-handed goal at 15:31. The Admirals fired 11 shots at Pietrasiak, while the BEARS picked up eight shots against Norfolk goaltender Corey Crawford in the first twenty minutes.

Joey Tenute opened the scoring in the second period with his ninth goal of the season, and his third in less than 24 hours. The goal at 5:17 of the second gave HERSHEY a 2-1 lead. After Jonas Nordqvist tied the game at 8:27 for Norfolk, Alexandre Giroux scored his 24th goal of the season at 13:30 of the second period from Tomas Fleischmann and Kyle Wilson. Norfolk would find the equalizer at 18:10 when Bochenski scored his second goal of the game. Although HERSHEY had two different one goal leads in the period, the BEARS went to the third tied at 3-3.

Norfolk took a 4-3 lead early in the third when Bochenski scored his third goal of the game just 52 seconds in. The BEARS would then score the final four goals of the game to win going away. Eric Fehr tied the game at 4-4 with his 16th goal of the season at 11:36, and Joey Tenute scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal at 13:30. Wiseman gave the BEARS a two-goal lead at 15:35 at 6-4 with his second of the game and 10th of the season. Giroux scored his second of the night into an empty net at 18:48 to finish off the contest. Pietrasiak, in his first AHL start, made a HERSHEY season high 45 saves to earn his first win.

Notes: Defenseman Shawn Germain was recalled from Reading (ECHL) Saturday and made his AHL debut in the game. The game was the fifth of 10 meetings between the two clubs, with a two game series January 3 and 5 up next in Hampton Roads. The short-handed goal by Wiseman in the first period was HERSHEY'S 15th of the season. Goaltender Daren Machesney, who won his first AHL start for HERSHEY Friday in Albany, was recalled by Washington Saturday and backed up Olie Kolzig.
