After seeing their six-game winning streak come to an end on Feb. 11, the Providence Bruins are back on  winning streak. After outscoring their opponents 15-7 in three games this weekend, the Bruins have won four straight games. Over the last 11 games, the Bruins have gone 10-1 and have taken over the Atlantic Division lead and third place in the Eastern Conference. 

The Bruins started the weekend with a home-and-home sweep of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The Bruins outscored the Sound Tigers 12-6. Niklas Svedberg started both games for the Bruins, earning both wins. Svedberg has now won his last nine starts and has allowed more than three goals just once.

The Bruins finished the weekend with a 3-1 victory over the Worcester Sharks. It was Michael Hutchinson's second win in his last three starts. He also started the game on Feb. 11 that saw the Bruins previous winning streak come to an end.

The winning streak has allowed the Bruins offense to shine. While Jamie Tardif's point streak came to an end at seven games, other Bruins have finally started to find their offensive groove. Craig Cunnigham has points in four straight games, nearly tripling his season output. While Cunnigham will not be one of the first callups to Boston this season, his emergence right now should give him, and the Bruins brass, confidence moving forward. 

Ryan Spooner has continued to impress since his brief stint in Boston. His point streak came to an end at five game but that shouldn't slow him down too much. Expect him to continue to score and produce for Providence.
