The Providence Bruins had just two games on the weekend, one on Saturday night and one on Sunday afternoon.

They won the Saturday affair, beating Bridgeport 4-1, before ending the weekend with a 2-1 loss to Hartford.

Saturday: 4-1 win over Bridgeport

The Bruins earned themselves a road win on Saturday night with a 4-goal outburst and 31 saves from Maxime Lagace.

The Bruins got goals from 4 different players: recently recalled Joona Koppanen, Brendan Gaunce, Alex Petrovic, and Jack Studnicka. Paul Carey chipped in with 2 assists as well.

The win was Lagace’s 6th of the young season. He’s been excellent overall, with a 6-1-1 record, a GAA of 2.00, and a save percentage of .935.

Sunday: 2-1 loss to Hartford

Unfortunately, the Bruins couldn’t complete the weekend sweep, falling to Hartford at home on Sunday. The Wolf Pack scored a goal in each of the first two periods, and while the Bruins clawed their way back in it with a goal in the third, it wasn’t enough.

Kyle Keyser took the loss, makings 23 saves. Studnicka scored the Bruins’ only goal.

Where we stand

The Bruins are 8-5-2 on the season, good for a tie for second place in the Atlantic Division (with the Springfield Falcons).

  1. Paul Carey - 7G, 6A, 13PTS in 15 games
  2. Alex Petrovic - 2G, 10A, 12PTS in 15 games
