BRIDGEPORT, CT. (NEWS CENTER) - Former UMaine star and current Bridgeport Sound Tigers head coach Scott Pellerin helped prevent a season sweep with a 4-1 win over the Portland Pirates.
Portland had won the previous five games.
The lost locked the Pirates into the 6th seed for the AHL's Eastern Conference playoffs. They'll play the 3rd-seeded Syracuse Crunch in their best-of-five first round series.
The first two games will take place at the OnCenter April 27th and 28th. Game three, and game four if necessary, will be played at the Cumberland County Civic Center May 2nd and 3rd. A decisive game five would be played back on Syracuse on Sunday May 5th.
