Bridgeport Sound Tigers TicketsThe Bridgeport Sound Tigers hockey team is the official AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders. The team serves as a farm system for NHL prospects, developmental projects and minor league veterans. The franchise was originally founded in 2001 by the same ownership group of the New York Islanders. The Bridgeport Sound Tigers are the Islanders' second affiliation franchise, along with the Worcester Railers of the ECHL. In its first-ever year, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers ascended to the top of the East Division. After capturing the Eastern Conference crown, the team made it to the 2002 Calder Cup Finals, where they lost to the Chicago Wolves in five games. Bridgeport won the division again in 2012, and they have made the playoffs twice since then. The longest Bridgeport has ever gone without making the playoffs is three years in a row from 2012-2013 to 2014-2015. Bridgeport Sound Tigers tickets are available at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
