BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Even spotted a two-goal lead in the first period on Saturday, the Adirondack Phantoms couldn't solve their problems on the road.

Bridgeport rallied for the next three goals and beat the Phantoms 3-2 before a crowd of 3,460 at Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard.

Late Saturday night, the Flyers announced that they had traded forward Jon Kalinski to Tampa. He was the final piece of a trade earlier in the day that sent draft picks to the Lightning in return for Pavel Kubina.

Kalinski, who didn't play Saturday, will report to Norfolk.

One of the AHL's best teams on home ice, the Phantoms haven't earned a road win since Dec. 17. They've lost 10 straight road games and have a league-worst road mark of 7-16-2.

Things started out promisingly.

Harry Zolnierczyk and Shane Harper scored first-period goals. Garrett Roe and Zolnierczyk each had two points in the period, giving them four points each in the last two games.

But any hopes the offense would build on its five-goal outpouring on Friday were quickly dashed in the second.

Bridgeport outshot the Phantoms 20-9 in the period and scored twice. David Ullstrom's second goal early in the third period on the power play proved to be the eventual game-winner.

Jason Bacashiua made his third straight start. He made 28 saves on 31 shots.
