P-Bruins Fall to Crunch at Syracuse

P-Bruins news release...

Syracuse, NY – The Providence Bruins fell to the Syracuse Crunch Saturday night 1-0.  David LeNeveu recorded 20 saves in net for the P-Bruins.

Following a scoreless game in regulation the night before, which ended in a shootout victory for the P-Bruins, the two teams were back at it again tonight in Syracuse.  It took only 42 seconds to break the scoreless drought between the two teams, as Cederic Paquette took the feed from Dana Tyrell and skate in front of LeNeveu and stuff the puck into the net as it barely crossed the goal line.

The Crunch continued the strong play following the goal, but were halted by LeNeveu as the Crunch led 1-0 going into the first intermission. 

Syracuse and Providence continued playing cautiously in the second period.  Chances were created on both ends, but Kristers Gudlevskis shut the door to stop any chances that the Providence offense was able to create as the game went into the second intermission with the Crunch leading 1-0. 

Trailing to start the third, the P-Bruins continued to put pressure on trying to tie the game against a team that had shut them out for over 100 minutes of hockey.  Syracuse's defense held strong though the period and limited the P-Bruins chances.  Providence dominated play in the third, but was unable to create any quality chances on Gudlevskis as he shut out Providence in regulation and overtime for the second straight game as Syracuse went onto the 1-0 victory.

LeNeveu stopped 20 of 21 shots for the P-Bruins, while Gudlevskis finished with 27 saves for the Crunch.  Providence went 0-for-3 on the power play and was 1-for-1 on the penalty kill.

The P-Bruins return home to the Dunkin' Donuts Center Sunday, January 12 at 3:05pm against the Manchester Monarchs.
