After Tuesday’s matchup, Albany remains on the road for a 7 pm game against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers Saturday and a 3 pm contest against the Manchester Monarchs Sunday. The pair of outings puts the finishing touches on a four-game road trip for the Devils, who are 11-6-1-4 on the road this season.
