P-BRUINS BITE SHARKS IN SHOOTOUT
Sauvé Scores Game-Winner in 3-2 Win
Worcester, MA -- The Providence Bruins defeated the Worcester Sharks 3-2 in a shootout this evening at the DCU Center. Jamie Tardif and Matt Bartkowski scored in regulation and Max Sauvé had the game-winner in the shootout.
Coming off an exciting come from behind 3-2 victory over the Manchester Monarchs last night, the Bruins came to Worcester hoping to carry over the momentum. However, both teams got off to a slow start. The Sharks were the first to gain momentum and quickly capitalized with a goal at 11:10. Despite outshooting Worcester 9-to-7 during the period, Providence couldn't find the back of the net and went into the first intermission trailing 1-0.
The Bruins and Sharks exchanged scoring opportunities, but it was a battle of the goaltenders as solid play from Michael Hutchinson and Alex Stalock kept both teams off of the board. The Bruins had multiple chances on only seven shots in the first period, but couldn't capitalize and went into the final frame trailing by a goal.
