4-2 LOSS ENDS PROVIDENCE POINT STREAK
Providence, RI - After a scoreless first period, the Falcons got on the board 8:18 into the second. Mauermann and DiSalvatore notched goals in the second period to give Springfield a 2-0 lead.
It was a feisty period of hockey with 11 penalties issued in the first 20 minutes of play. Colton Hargrove dropped the gloves with Selleck in the 11th minute of play.
Khokhlachev cut the Falcon’s lead in half 13 seconds into the power play. Seth Griffith dished the puck to Ben Yours, who fired a shot from the blue line, with Khokhlachev’s deflection finding the back of the net.
Tension ran high in the second period with the refs needing to separate the two teams on multiple occasions.
Seth Griffith tied at 2-2 the game on the only power play of the third period. David Pastrnak and Colby Cave tallied the assists. This was Pastrnak’s first game with the Providence Bruins during the 2015-16 season on a conditioning assignment after having suffered a fractured foot while up with the Boston Bruins.
Monardo scored the go ahead goal 18:12 into the third when his snipe from the top of the circle soared over Subban’s glove. Ex-Providence Bruin Craig Cunningham potted the empty netter a minute later to give the Falcons the 4-2 win.
This loss ends the P-Bruins 9 game point streak. Griffith has recorded at least a point in 6 of the last 8 games and has gone 5-8-13 in the month of December.
The P-Bruins are back home January 3rd against the Rochester Americans.
