GLENDALE -- The Portland Pirates, the Coyotes’ top affiliate in the American Hockey League, have won four games in a row and lead the AHL’s Atlantic Division by seven points.

Portland (23-12-1-1) will try to stay hot this week despite losing lost four of its top six scorers – Alex Bolduc, Andy Miele, David Rundblad and Micahel Stone - to the Phoenix Coyotes, who opened training camp in Arizona over the weekend.

On Sunday, the Pirates defeated Worcester, 3-1, for their fourth straight win.

Brett Hextall, Chris Conner and Jordan Szwarz, scored goals for the Pirates.

Rob Klinkhammer picked up his 200th career AHL point with an assist in the first period. He added a second assist in the third.

Evan Brophey, who played in his 400th career AHL game, also notched an assist.

• The night before on Saturday, Portland rallied from a two-goal deficit to defeat Bridgeport, 6-3.

Szwarz notched two goals and an assist, while Brophey and Brendan Shinnimin each had a goal with two assists to power the Pirates.

Goalie Mark Visentin won his sixth straight start, stopping 39 of 42 shots.

Ethan Werek played in his 100th game for the Pirates and in his AHL career.

Shinnimin

• Last Tuesday, the Pirates tied their season high in goals and scored five unanswered to beat Worcester 7-3.

The win tied the team record for consecutive wins at home at eight, which was set during the inaugural 1993-94 season.
