Affiliate Report: Providence extends winning streak, Maine falters to familiar foe


The Boston Bruins are clicking on all cylinders in what is shaping up to be a special season. Down on the farm, the Providence Bruins are following suit as Boston’s AHL affiliate continues to rack up wins. Providence extended its winning streak to five with a pair of victories over the Charlotte Checkers (Florida Panthers) at home, winning 5-2 on Friday night and 5-3 on Sunday afternoon. In the ECHL, the Maine Mariners had a less-than-memorable homestand, losing all four games including two over the weekend. In a playoff rematch against the Reading Royals (Philadelphia Flyers), Maine dropped home contests, 5-3 on Friday and 4-1 on Saturday.
