Chad Kolarik scored on a penalty shot to give Wilkes-Barre/Scranton a 1-0 lead, but Ryan Spooner evened the score for the Bruins with 1:06 to play in the first period.

Providence, RI - In a period completely dominated by Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Providence Bruins evened the score with just 1:06 to play.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton got on the board first when it was awarded a penalty shot after Providence defenseman Kevin Millar gloved the puck in the crease. Chad Kolarik came in and without deking forehanded a shot that rung off the post and into the net. It beat Providence goalie Niklas Svedberg, who made 16 saves in the period, on the blocker side.

Late in the period, some tic-tac-toe passing by Providence's top line evened the score. Jamie Tardif passed it up the boards to Chris Bourque who fired it right to Ryan Spooner who was waiting in the high slot. His one-timer beat Penguins goalie Jeff Zatkoff.

Notes: The Bruins were whistled for three penalties, including the penalty shot while the Penguins had just one minor in the period. The only sustained pressure the Bruins had in the period came on the power play. Former Brown standout and North Andover native Bobby Farnham had a huge hit in his return to Providence.
