Heading into the first three-in-three weekend of the season at 0-2, the P-Bruins were presented with a good opportunity to get back on track. While the weekend started on a positive note, the downward trend continued on Saturday and Sunday.
Friday, October 12 vs. Hartford, 4-3 OT Win:
After trailing 3-1 with under ten minutes to go in the third, the P-Bruins mounted a two-goal comeback to force overtime and earned their first win of the season on a Cody Goloubef tally. Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, Anton Blidh, and Trent Frederic scored the other goals for Providence. Zane McIntyre made 15 saves in the victory.
Saturday, October 13 vs. Hartford, 4-3 Loss:
The P-Bruins trailed for all of Saturday’s contest against the Wolf Pack, but once again picked up momentum toward the end of the game. Down 4-0 with under three minutes to go, Providence piled on three quick goals to pull to within one, but it was too late. The Baby B’s had goals from Zach Senyshyn, Colby Cave, and Blidh. Dan Vladar made 26 saves on 30 shots.
Sunday, October 14 vs. Springfield, 6-3 Loss:
Sunday’s game was definitely the biggest stinker of the season thus far. Despite leading 1-0 at the start of the second period, the Thunderbirds scored three quick goals to take a 3-1 lead, and carried the momentum into the final period to earn the 6-3 win. Scorers for the P-Bruins were Ryan Fitzgerald, Cave, and Blidh. McIntyre made 14 saves on 20 shots.
The P-Bruins are currently seventh in the Atlantic Division with a 1-4 record, and will take on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in a two-game series this weekend.
