📝 With files from Patrick Williams

Here is a look at Saturday night around the AHL:

The Islanders have an eight-game point streak (7-0-1-0) following a 5-3 win over Hartford. Bridgeport’s league-leading power play (33.3 percent) went 2-for-4, the fifth game in a row that it has produced a goal. Arnaud Durandeau (two goals, one assist), Samuel Bolduc (one goal, one assist), and Jakub Skarek (29 saves) helped to lead the Islanders (7-1-1-1) while a three-assist night moved Ruslan Iskhakov into a tie for the AHL scoring lead at 14 points (four goals, 10 assists).

The Marlies’ winning streak is at six games after last night’s 5-2 win in Belleville. Adam Gaudette paced Toronto with his first pro hat trick, while Nick Abruzzese (one goal, two assists) supplied further offense, and Keith Petruzzelli made 26 saves for the Marlies (8-2-0-0), who are tied with the Providence Bruins with a league-leading 16 points.

Twelve Eagles recorded a point to help earn a split in their two-game set with the Reign. Oskar Olausson (two goals) and Brad Hunt (three assists) carried the Eagles to a season-high seven goals, four of them in the second period. Jonas Johansson (22 saves) won his first game with Colorado (4-5-0-0).

The Admirals (7-2-0-0) claimed their sixth consecutive win, finishing a two-game sweep of their visit to San Diego. Devin Cooley’s 25 saves earned him his third win of the season. Milwaukee and Ontario are tied for the Western Conference lead at 14 points.
