Bridgeport Islanders Face First Homestand Of 2023/24 Season
The Bridgeport Islanders go into their first homestand of the season, facing the 0-1-1 Utica Comets on Saturday and the 1-1-0 standing Hershey Bears on Sunday.
Bridgeport comes in with the sixth-best offense in the AHL’s Eastern Conference, with 8 goals scored in three games. The AHL Islanders are led by Ruslan Iskhakov and Brian Pinho, who both have accounted for 5 points this season.
Despite the offensive power, the Islanders defense has struggled behind Jakub Skarek and his .897sv% and Ken Appleby, who is still adjusting to the Bridgeport scene.
A 1-2 record could improve to a game north of .500% if Bridgeport is able to pull-off the homestand sweep.
