Of the Sound Tigers last six games, five have been decided by just one goal. They are 3-2-0-0 in those contests. The team is also on the road two Fridays from now in Manchester, but will make their return to Webster Bank Arena following that game, with a pair of home tilts against Worcester (Saturday, 3/15) and Adirondack (Sunday, 3/16).
