P-Bruins Lose to Sound Tigers in Bridgeport

P-Bruins news release…

Providence, RI – The P-Bruins held an advantage in shots on net the entire game, but the Sound Tigers walked away with the 4-3 win, extending Providence’s four game skid.

Dalton Smith attempted to inject the team with some energy in the first when he dropped the gloves with Bridgeport’s Scott Mayfield. Despite out shooting the Sound Tigers 11-7 in the first period, the P-Bruins couldn’t convert and the first period ended scoreless.

Smith put the P-Bruins on the board three minutes in to the second period, assisted by Rob Bordson and Garry Nunn. This marked Nunn’s first point as a Providence Bruin.

Sebastian Collberg struck back to tie the game at one apiece with just under seven minutes left in the second period. Carkner and Whitney were credited with the assists. 17:55 in to the period, Justin Vaive scored on the power play with Chris Casto in the box for interference to give the Sound Tigers the 2-1 lead. Vaive tipped Pulock’s slap shot from the blue line.

Noel Acciari and Mike Halmo fought with under two minutes left in the second period, and the P-Bruins walked away with the man-up advantage. Max Talbot capitalized on the resulting power play, his shot finding its way past Gibson with under a minute left to play. In addition to tying the game, the power play goal was Talbot’s first goal in a P-Bruins jersey (5th point).

Austin Czarnik wasted no time, scoring 59 seconds into the third period for the go-ahead goal. This was Czarnik’s first game back after suffering a shoulder injury on October 16th. Seth Griffith and Ben Youds recorded the assists. At the 3-minute mark, Bracken Kearns put one past Subban to tie the game 3-3. Alan Quine scored the game winner at 13:17 into the third, assisted by Graham and Strome.

Providence comes home to the Dunk Friday November 13th where they take on the Albany Devils at 7:05pm.
