Jason Krog scored two goals and added an assist to lead the Bridgeport Sound Tigers to their eighth consecutive victory, a 5-3 win over the Phantoms in the AHL last night. Bridgeport led for virtually the entire game, but the Phantoms kept it close until Krog's empty-net goal sealed the victory in the closing seconds. The winning goal came from Jason Podollan, who took a feed from Krog and buried a wrist shot from the slot at 2 minutes, 56 seconds of the second period. That gave the Tigers a 4-2 lead and led the Phantoms to change goaltenders from Neil Little to Maxime Ouellet, who stopped all 16 shots he faced in relief.

THE NEW YORK Islanders say they are aware of goalie Rick DiPietro's comments about depression and suicide, and plan to handle the matter internally. DiPietro, placed on waivers and then sent to the minors last week, said in an interview with News 12 Long Island that he has fought depression and pondered suicide because of his history of injuries, the weight of a giant contract and the team's constant losing. The 31-year-old goalie later told reporters his comments about suicide shouldn't be taken literally because he simply intended to credit the support of his wife during his trying time with the Islanders.
