Sound Tigers Clinch Division Title; Will Play CT Rival in First Round | April

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers clinched the Northeast Division title last night after they defeated the Providence Bruins.

It is the first time the Sound Tigers have won the division since they did it during the 2001-2002 season. That year the Sound Tigers went all the way to the Calder Cup Finals lead by former Islander Trent Hunter and a young Rick Dipietro.

The win also locked up Bridgeport’s first round matchup, as they will meet the New York Rangers’ farm team, the Connecticut Whale.

The series is a best of three and it opens up on Thursday in Bridgeport. Game two will be at Webster Bank Arena, with games three and four in Hartford and game five, if necessary, back in Bridgeport.

Tickets for the playoffs are available here or you can go the old fashion route and call 1-800-745-3000.

Bridgeport closes out the regular season with a home and home against the baby Pens tonight and tomorrow
