Friday night (4/11) begins the final regular season weekend of hockey for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, and they're miraculously still alive for the AHL playoffs. They play Lowell at home on Friday, then conclude with a home-and-home series against Hartford (the Rangers' affiliate) on Saturday and Sunday.
Hopefully the Tigers will be able to slip into that final playoff spot. What would be even nicer is if Kyle erupted with a huge multi-point game this weekend and carried the team on his back. We know he's more than capable. No pressure, though, Kyle.
If the Tigers do make the AHL playoffs, we'll hold off on posting our highly-anticipated NHL draft preview for a little longer. As you may have heard, there was no movement in positioning for any team, so the Isles will select fifth overall. Regardless, the Isles should be right in the thick of the high-impact players come selection time (barring a draft-day trade). As long as Garth and company don't pick the Dave Chyzowski of the group, the team will be fine.
