Cardiac Check: Tigers Lack Bite

Checkers 36-23-2-6, Tigers 22-36-3-5

Our favorite AHL boys to the west hopped on a jet plane last night to Bridgeport, Conn. The Checkers begin a four game road trip with their first pair of contests with the Sound Tigers. Of course, no road trip would be complete without a ridiculous Twitter picture from #31.

 Although the Tigers are coming off a win in Sunday’s game, the team had sputtered previously with a five game losing streak. On the contrary, the Checkers lost their last game on Saturday but boast a comfortable 6th place in the playoff race.

The Checkers have trumped Bridgeport in both of their prior meetings in Charlotte. The teams success is supported by leaders Chris Terry and Zach Boychuk. Terry claims 25 goals and 41 points, as Boychuk has 31 assists.
