PROVIDENCE FALLS TO MANCHESTER
Return to Action Tomorrow Afternoon at The Dunk
Manchester, NH -- The Providence Bruins fell to the Manchester Monarchs 3-0 this evening at the Verizon Wireless Center.
The P-Bruins traveled to Manchester with high-spirits after a 2-1 shootout win over the Albany Devils last night. However, the first period was stagnant as both teams failed to get on the board. The teams traded opportunities, but neither found the back of the net.
Manchester's Andrei Loktionov got the Monarchs on the board first at 11:21 of the second frame. While on the power play, the P-Bruins got caught up front and Loktionov was able to score a shorthanded goal. Despite the one-goal deficit, the P-Bruins still pummeled Martin Jones with shots, tallying eight in the second frame. However, their efforts went unrewarded as they went into the final intermission trailing by one goal.
