CHARLOTTE, NC – Game 3 between the Charlotte Checkers and Bridgeport Islanders started out slow Saturday night, after a scoreless first period.
Aleksi Heponiemi got the Checkers on the board first during the second period but the Islanders quickly answered back with a goal of their own to end the period 1-1.
Both teams came back ready to put up a hard fight in the third period as a win for the Checkers would put them in the next round of playoffs. The Islanders were able to net two more goals with Charlotte only scoring one, giving Bridgeport the 3-2 victory and forcing a Game 4 on Monday night.
