the Hershey Bears in Game
4 of the Eastern Conference
Quarterfinals at the Giant
Center Sunday evening to force a Game

Instead, Camper gave the P-Bruins a 3-2 lead with his second goal of the contest at the 8:10 mark. He sent a Caron rebound past Grubauer. Wellman tied it up again for Hershey at the 11:45 mark with a shot right out of the faceoff. The Bears took their first lead of the game when Tom Wilson registered his first AHL goal with a go-ahead strike with only 4:40 remaining. He came straight off the bench into the rush and put the Bears up 4-3.
Craig Cunningham scored his first goal of the series on the power play after a Nicolas Deschamps delay of game minor, giving the P-Bruins their second man advantage goal of the game. Camper clinched his hat trick and another home game in Providence with a booming slapper over the glove of Grubauer for a 5-4 lead with 1:04 left.
Svedberg made 28 saves in the victory, while Grubauer had 32 blocks in the defeat. The P-Bruins ended the game two-for-four on the power play and five-for-six killing Hershey’s man advantages.
