Islanders Reveal Their Favorite Pizza ToppingsNov 8, 2023
The “Battle of Connecticut” kicks off this Friday night when the Bridgeport Islanders welcome the Hartford Wolf Pack to Total Mortgage Arena for a 7 p.m. faceoff. It’s the first of 10 meetings between the in-state rivals and the first of five in Bridgeport.
But maybe more importantly (!!!), it’s the inaugural Pucks & Pies Night! While the Islanders cut up the ice, we're cutting up some of the world's best pizza slices prior to puck drop.
Through this unique package, all fans can attend the game, plus gain access to a pre-game pizza tasting event from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., featuring slices from local Connecticut pizzerias such as Sally’s Apizza, Frank Pepe’s, and Fire Engine Pizza Co. We recently caught up with several players to find out what toppings make up their favorite types of pizza, in no particular order.
