Here is a look at Tuesday’s action around the AHL:
HARTFORD 7, BRIDGEPORT 3
Ryan Carpenter notched a hat trick to lead the Wolf Pack past the Islanders in an in-state showdown in Bridgeport. Carpenter is now tied for the team lead with seven goals, all coming in his last five games. Cristiano DiGiacinto, Lauri Pajuniemi, Bobby Trivigno and Karl Henriksson also scored for the Pack, and Dylan Garand stopped 20 shots. The seven goals were the most in a game for Hartford this season, and their biggest output in a road contest since a 7-3 win at Springfield on Apr. 8, 2016.
