Wolf Pack upended by Bridgeport, 5-1

All this giving in is wearing thin

Bridgeport's Sean Bergenheim scored four times, including the first three goals of the game to chase Hartford goalie Robert Gherson, as the Sound Tigers went on to defeat the Wolf Pack in Bridgeport on Wednesday, 5-1. The win was Bridgeport's first against the Pack this season, following 6 straight losing efforts. Bergenheim now has 25 goals on the season. Hartford's lone goal came in the second period, by Alexandre Giroux (24). Hartford outshot the Sound Tigers, 41-26.

The loss ended the Wolf Pack's recent streak of 8 straight games without a defeat in regulation (7-0-0-1). Replacing Gherson in net after Bergenheim's third goal of the night was Chris Holt, just recently reassigned to Hartford after a stint in Charlotte (Holt has since been recalled by the Rangers to be target practice in NY while Henrik Lundqvist is away). It should be noted that the same four letters in "Holt" are also in "Holmqvist"-- as in Johan Holmqvist, against whose place in history as the worst Wolf Pack goalie ever Chris Holt is now challenging.

The fact of the matter is I ain't your bitch, so why you always giving me the bait and switch?
