Bridgeport Sound Tigers 4, Connecticut Whale 3 (OT)
By Brian Ring
Bridgeport, CT, November 2, 2011 - The Connecticut Whale fell to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers Wednesday afternoon, 4-3 in overtime, at the Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard.
The Sound Tigersâ Tim Wallace tallied a hat-trick in the game, including the overtime winner, to lead Bridgeport to a come-from-behind win. The Whale received two goals and an assist from rookie Jonathan Audy-Marchessault.
The defeat snapped the Whaleâs five-game winning-streak, but Connecticut did gain at least a standings point for the ninth consecutive game (7-0-0-2).
âItâs 3-1 and youâre giving up odd-man chances, thatâs no good,â said Whale head coach Ken Gernander.

The Sound Tigers had opened up the scoring with Wallaceâs first goal of the season,
