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 Tigers’ 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 Whale’s five-game winning-streak, but Connecticut did gain at least a standings point for the ninth consecutive game (7-0-0-2).

Round III of the Brent Thompson–Eric Boguniecki Connection is underway in Bridgeport.
Two of hockey’s most passionate personalities first became acquainted as players with the AHL’s defunct Louisville Panthers in 1999-2000, the season the Hartford Wolf Pack won their only Calder Cup title.
Two years ago, they reunited about 4,000 miles away in Anchorage, Alaska, as Thompson hired Boguniecki as a player-coach with the ECHL’s Alaska Aces.
