Niklas Svedberg stopped all 18 shots St. John's threw at him en route to a 3-0 win for the Providence Bruins. It was just his fourth start in North America. The win snaps the Bruins three game losing streak.
With the shutout, Svedberg appears to have taken control of the No. 1 job in Providence. He is now 3-1 with a 2.01 goals against and a .927 goals against. Michael Hutchinson, the expected starter for Providence coming into the season, is 0-4 with 3.75 goals against and a .838 save percentage.
It took all of 22 seconds for the Bruins to give Svedberg all the support he needed. Bobby Robins took a pass from Christian Hanson and scored his first goal of the season.
Carter Camper added his second goal in as many games with just over four minutes left in the second on the powerplay. It was the Bruins' only goal on the powerplay in five chances.
Lane MacDermid scored his first of the season to finish the scoring. Hanson and Robins each picked up an assist on the goal.
The Bruins outshot the Ice Caps 38-18 and were a perfect 7-for-7 on the penalty kill.
