Rivalry

The main (and instate) rival of the Sound Tigers are the Hartford Wolfpack, the AHL affiliate of the New York Rangers (the main rival of the Sound Tigers’ parent club, the New York Islanders). They also have a very good rivalry with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the Pittsburgh PenguinsAHL affiliate. This is due largely to the fact that Bridgeport and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are frequent playoff match-ups. They also are semi-rivals with the Hershey Bears, the Washington Capitals’ AHL affiliate.
