Providence Bruins Press Release

BRIDGEPORT, CT. – Matt Filipe scored his first career goal and Jeremy Swayman recorded his first career
shutout as the Providence Bruins defeated the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 3-0, on Wednesday afternoon. The
win marks Providence’s seventh win in their last nine contests. The P-Bruins improved to 8-2-1 with the victory
and have a plus-13 goal differential on the season. Providence went five-for-five on the penalty kill and outshot
Bridgeport, 30-25.

Head coach Jay Leach: “He (Jeremy Swayman) has been plug and play from day one. He very much gives you the sense that he’s
working every day the same way, preparing the same way. He goes out there and performs, really, the same way. He’s very consistent in everything he does.
His movement, as you can tell, has been worked on for years and years. His mental game is top notch. He’ll make a mistake and it won’t even phase him.
He’s right back to being present. Obviously, making save after save in the manner that he does and making it look easy when it really isn’t. The last 10
minutes they came at us hard on the power play and he stood tall without showing any sort of weakness at all.”
