The Providence Bruins went 2-0-0-1 in three games this weekend, securing five points. The Bruins defeated Connecticut and Portland but fell in a shootout to Worcester. The wins push the Bruins over the .500 mark, at 9-8-0-2.
Things did not start of good for the Bruins as they fell behind early against Connecticut on Friday. But they regrouped and stormed back. The Bruins tied the game early in the second before falling behind again. But two goals in just over a minute late in the second put the Bruins ahead for good, winning 4-2.
On Saturday the Bruins struck first but fell behind before the first period was done. But once again the Bruins responded, rattling off four straight goals to defeat Portland 5-2.
Sunday wouldn't be as kind for the Bruins. The Bruins struck first for the second straight day and again couldn't hold the lead and the first period ended tied. Both the Bruins and Worcester scored in the second and the game would stay tied until the shootout. The Bruins were stopped in every shootout attempt as they fell 3-2.
Jamie Tardiff scored three goals in the three games while Tommy Cross, in his first AHL action, assisted on two goals. The Bruins also received production from the blue line with Zach Trotman (a goal, two assists) and Christian Hanson (two goals, two assists) each recording multiple points.Tags: AHL, Boston, Boston Bruins, Christian Hanson, Hockey, Jamie Tardiff, NHL, Providence Bruins, Tommy Cross
