Campoli’s hat trick lifts Bridgeport

Rookie defenseman Chris Campoli capped a three-goal night with a power play score 51 seconds into overtime, giving Bridgeport a 4-3 win over Springfield in Shelton, Conn., on Monday night.

Campoli, a seventh-round draft pick by the N.Y. Islanders in 2004 out of Erie (OHL), has four goals and two assists in the Sound Tigers’ two preseason contests.

Barrett Heisten had a goal and an assist for Bridgeport, and Bruno Gervais recorded two assists. Dieter Kochan and Wade Dubielewicz, last year’s Harry “Hap” Holmes Award winners, combined for 28 saves.

Nikita Alexeev, the eighth overall pick in the 2000 NHL draft and a former teammate of Campoli’s at Erie, scored twice for the Falcons.
